The Warehouse Hotel sits on the banks of the Singapore River in Robertson Quay, a neighbourhood with a rich and notorious past. Our building has been beautifully restored as a modern hotel and is a space we hope will serve as a portal to local culture.
While there are endless options for eating, sightseeing and things to do throughout our city, we have put together this guide with our personal recommendations for your time in Singapore.
Go ahead and spend a day out exploring our favourite neighbourhoods. Eat at a local market in one of Singapore’s oldest estates, enjoy breathtaking views of the skyline while sipping on locally inspired cocktails or catch the tropical sunset on our city’s best strip of sand.
Should you need any help with reservations, our friendly team is on hand to assist.
So go on, our little red dot beckons.
Robertson Quay is one of the only neighbourhoods in Singapore with a vibrant blend of residential and commercial offerings. It is walking distance to Clarke Quay and Boat Quay; and equidistant from the Central Business District and the Orchard Road shopping district. Its bustling riverside location makes it a natural food and beverage hub.
After cutting his teeth at Nihonryori RyuGin (3* Tokyo, Japan) and Odette (3* Singapore), Chef Shigeru Koizumi’s kappo fine dining restaurant showcases Modern Japanese cuisine guided by his affinity with nature and attention to detail.
Make a booking well ahead of time to get a seat at the Chef’s Counter for an intimate, immersive experience.
