M Social is a designer’s dream. Mirrored surfaces, concrete walls, steeple-like ceilings are just some of the design elements thrown together to create the boutique hotel’s avant-garde appearance. It is also designed by famed French designer, Phillppe Starck. Known for his quirky interior, architectural and product designs, he has brought his brand of urban style to this riverside stay. Though dramatic in appearance, the rooms are fantastically comfortable spaces. Guests pick from alcove-inspired dens to loft-style spaces, where beds sit on a mezzanine floor above the glass-encased bathrooms. The cosmopolitan-chic rooms complement a visit to the fabulous island city of Singapore perfectly.
In the Area
Located along the Singapore river, M Social is nestled in one of the city’s nightlife districts. But unlike the boisterous, party-haven Clarke Quay (just a 10 minute walk from the hotel), M Social is located at Roberston Quay. An upscale area known for its classy drinking spots, cheese and wine bars, al fresco restaurants and array of authentic Japanese restaurants. Here you’ll be in one of the city’s chicest neighborhoods.
How to Get There
Had a chance to stay 2D1N for some “me” time. Checked in on Saturday 1pm and got a room at the 9th floor. The staff at reception were friendly. On-job training was going on for my check-in but overall not too much delay. Still good.
Since I brought only a little stuff for the staycation, the room size seems ok for me. But for 2 travellers, might have space limitation for luggage.
The toilet and shower are within the same area where there was this heavy door which always have a “crack” sound when I opened or closed the door. I suspected the toilet light is on sensor as it will goes on and off whenever I enter or exit. Mysteriously, the toilet light came on at around 2am when I was sleeping on the bed. As I opened the blind from the toilet, the lights kinda woken me up when it came on. Also there’s always a click sound whenever the light turns on, so the sound also kinda woke me up as I’m a light sleeper. Other than that, it was still a peaceful night sleep for the rest of the night.
The water pressure from the rain shower was kinda small for my liking as I always look forward to hotel shower time. But it’s not a problem till I have to take longer time to get clean. Just have to think it as been environmental friendly and use lesser water!
I stayed in the room the whole of the afternoon and it was really peaceful and quiet. Had a good time reading a book on the bed and dozing off before I got up and head out for dinner.
There were some cafes and restaurants near the hotel so finding food nearby is not a big issue. My next morning breakfast at the hotel was good! Good spread of western and local breakfast choices and the coffee was also good. The chirpiness of the staff at the restaurant was also a happy welcome when they greeted everyone who walks in. I was feeling lucky that I had included breakfast for my stay and left with a happy tummy.
I did an express checkout by dropping my room key at the at express checkout box instead of waiting for the counter staff. Everything was simple and fuss-free.
Will definitely consider to revisit for another stay.
I had heard a lot of good things about M Social from my friends and was excited to check it out. When I finally did, I was not disappointed. The room was cosy and very thoughtfully designed. It also came with all the amenities that I needed for a good stay. I was particularly impressed with the robotic assistant, which was a nice touch. I would also to commend the front desk staff William for his exemplary service and wonderful attitude. It was because of him that my stay was that much better. Furthermore, their sustainability efforts really impressed me and I hope that other hotels follow suit. I look forward to my next stay!
Trendy hotel and staff was super attentive, kind enough to let us to check in slightly earlier as the room was already available and we had a lot of bags with us. Will definitely be revisiting this place again!
