Monochrome Madness

Many hotels are famous for their cutting-edge design, but this is the first one we’ve heard of that’s based on just two colours: Black and White.

If you are looking for a trendy place to host your birthday parties or an aesthetic #monochromemonday photo from your staycations, look no further.

The highly anticipated Hotel Mono, Singapore’s first Black and White hotel, is now open in Chinatown.


Both the exterior and the interior of the hotel are completely monochromatic, and provide a much-needed break from the colourful and vibrant colours that are prolific in Chinatown.


Amazing Rooms

They say good things come in small packages, and Hotel Mono proves this axiom to be true. Stretching across 6 shophouses, the hotel comprises just 46 rooms, so book super early if you want to experience this visual masterpiece.

The 46 rooms are split into 6 types, each catering to different groups of travellers.

Let’s take a virtual tour:

Single Rooms


The room may be for one, but it’s still spacious. Perfect for the solo traveller with a soft spot for the minimalist aesthetic.

Twin Rooms

All twin rooms have 2 super single beds.


Even the bathrooms are in monochrome.


Double Rooms/Double Plus

With a queen-sized bed, a double room is perfect for a staycation with your significant other.



Of course, if you need a little more space, and would fancy a view of the bustling streets of Chinatown, you could opt for the Double Plus rooms, which come with big windows.

Studio Rooms

For some of you, the idea of being in a small room is rather irksome. Fret not, the studio rooms are available to save the day. Each one is like a mini-apartment:


With both a king-sized bed and a sofa bed, it’s the perfect place to crash after a party or a night of painting the town red.

Family Room

An avid minimalist but can’t find a babysitter for your kids? Don’t worry, Hotel Mono even boasts a Family room.



While the rooms may differ in styles and size, one thing stays constant: Great amenities.

Each room comes with the now-standard free high-speed Wi-Fi Internet access, powerful air-conditioning, an attached bathroom and daily housekeeping. Refreshments such as coffee and tea are provided too.

Wanna have a movie marathon? Rooms are stocked with flat-screen TVs with cable service.

And for your beauty sleep, Hotel Mono provides each rooms the luxury of a pocketed spring bed with micro-gel fibre pillows.

It doesn’t get any better than this.

Location, Location, Location

When opening any hotel, accessibility is the most important thing.

The people behind Hotel Mono must have understood this completely, and they have chosen a location right smack in the middle of Chinatown.

The hotel is a stone’s throw away from all the attractions Chinatown has to offer, and is also mere minute away from Chinatown MRT.


Although the hotel may not offer gourmet breakfasts, the location it seem as though you are virtually surrounded by food. With the plethora of food that you can find in Chinatown, it’s almost impossible that your tummy will be unsatisfied.



Nothing gets Singaporeans more excited that a promotion. This is no different.

Hotel Mono is offering an early bird promotion, with rooms going for 20% less than their normal prices. The promotion ends on June 1, so gather your kakis and book your staycation now!

You can book your rooms via the Hotel Mono website to enjoy the offer.

Don’t say bojio!
