CUBE Boutique Capsule Hotels is set to open a second property in Singapore

Following up on the success of the Chinatown property that debuted in 2016, Singapore is welcoming a second CUBE Boutique Capsule Hotels venue. The new capsule hotel will be located at Kampong Glam. The innovative brand that combines privacy, comfort and high-tech facilities has been well-received by discerning guests and business travellers.

CUBE Boutique Capsule Hotels is set to open a second property in Singapore

CUBE Boutique Capsule Hotels is set to open a second property in Singapore soon. The brand, which is part of the expanding portfolio helmed by RB Hospitality, aims to provide affordable, restored heritage accommodation located in popular conservation and cultural enclaves targeted at a new group of digitally-inclined, discerning travellers.

The new hotel will be located at Kampong Glam and looks to replicate the success of the first property. Located in Chinatown, the first CUBE Boutique Capsule Hotel was inaugurated in 2016 and wowed visitors for its high quality standards.

The new venue will comprise another 56 beds – a mix of singles and queens- each in its own cosy capsule. Measuring 6 ft x 3 ft x 4ft for a single and 6 ft x 5 ft x 4 ft for a queen with plush mattresses and linen, each capsule is well designed to moderate its own temperature and air-flow; and solidly insulated to reduce ambient noise for a comfortable rest. In addition, each unit is equipped with a universal electrical outlet, safe, mirror/vanity area, bedside light, a small space for hanging garments and a locker drawer with digital security for personal storage.

Named after the neighbouring streets, room configurations vary between two and 18 capsules. The rooms are all sturdily soundproofed against the lively sounds of the vicinity and feature private bathrooms that are spacious with standing showers, hairdryer and bath toiletries. Guests are provided with a dental kit, slippers and one towel, upon check-in and this is exchangeable daily. There is even a washing machine with complimentary detergent and work desks are also provided for guests’ use.

Another one of the features that add value to the second capsule hotel is its key location. Sonia Anya Tay, Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder stated:

“Kampong Glam is chosen for its vibrancy, charm and rich heritage culture. In addition to the Sultan Mosque and the Malay Heritage Centre, there are a number of shops, cafes, restaurants and other bustling sites such as the hip Haji Lane. The Bugis MRT Station is only a 5-minute walk away.”

The hotel lobby is home to the Singapore Visitor Centre, which offers tours to popular Singapore locations. Friendly and knowledgeable reception staff in smart uniforms are on hand to offer 24/7 service including insider tips on authentic local experiences.

Other fantastic features of the hotel include daily housekeeping, 24-hour concierge, airport pickups, free Wi-Fi and breakfast, along with tech touches that make the experience more interactive and enjoyable. If they wish, guests can log onto the Dining Butler, a smartphone tech solution for food orders and delivery or simply step out and enjoy the excellent Yasu Japanese Grill or any of the other food and beverage outlets.

Thanks to its pragmatic take on comfort, the brand has been particularly successful with business travellers and savvy tech fans. Tay added:

“Our guests are typically 18-35 years old global explorers including founders of new generation businesses and special interest groups. The positive interest shown in our properties has inspired us to create a new CUBE Capsule concept which we aim to open before the end of this year. This is very much in line with our vision to grow the number of CUBE Boutique Capsule Hotels to eight in Singapore in the next few years.”

Guests can enjoy a stay at one of the capsules for prices that range from S$50 and S$120 per night. Since the launch of the CUBE brand, the group was awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for the Chinatown property as well as the ISO 9001:2015 certification in Project Management of Hotel Construction & Renovation and Provision of Hospitality Services.
