Lloyd’s Inn Singapore: Stay at an affordable contemporary boutique hotel in Singapore

Check out Lloyds Inn Singapore for the best stay at an affordable boutique hotel

Last Updated on

Singapore is an excellent destination for solo travellers, but it is one of the most expensive cities in the world to visit. And accommodation in Singapore isn’t very cheap. 

Lucky for me, I found Lloyd’s Inn Singapore while I was there a couple of weeks ago, and the hotel is everything I wanted minus the expensive price tag. 

I knew of the hotel brand when I visited Bali last year. I stayed at Lloyd’s Inn Bali and had the best experience. I loved the simple minimalist design aesthetics of the hotel and the general serene atmosphere. I wrote a review of Lloyd’s Inn Bali so solo travellers can stay at an affordable hotel while travelling in Bali. 

If you are interested in staying at a budget-friendly minimalist boutique hotel in Singapore, then you must book Lloyd’s in Singapore. Keep reading and learn more about the hotel.

Before you visit Singapore

Before you visit Singapore, take a look at my Singapore solo travel guide. I included recommendations for must-see attractions and ideas on where to eat and where to stay in Singapore besides Lloyd’s hotel. And if you need more ideas, I have a list of 17 free things to do alone in Singapore

Guestroom – The Reading Room

There are eight types of guestrooms and a total of 34 rooms on the small property of the hotel.

Initially, I booked the Standard Room because it is the cheapest room at Lloyd’s Inn Singapore. Perhaps it was the timing when the hotel wasn’t very busy, or maybe there are fewer people during the week, Lloyd’s Inn upgraded me to the Reading Room

The Reading Room has a queen-size bed with a city view. The crisp whiten bedding matches perfectly with the light wood platform bed. And the pristine white wall is a stark contrast to the black metal details in the window frame, clothing rod and other metal details. 

If you fancy a bigger room or a room with a balcony, choose between the Garden Room, Business Room, Sky Room, or Patio Room

Other features in the guestroom

Besides the comfortable bed, other features in the Reading Room are worth noting. 

The Reading room has a desk/vanity area which has a small fridge, and all the travel toiletries that you need for a short term stay. 

There is an in-room safe box to secure your belongings. 

And you will find a hairdryer, ironing board and slippers in the drawers under the platform bed. 

Lloyd’s Inn has excellent wifi reception. And this is especially useful as it allows you to cast movies and television shows from your smartphone to the SMART tv

Every guest room has a private semi-outdoor ensuite bathroom which includes a toilet and a shower.

Semi-outdoor ensuite bathroom 

The ensuite bathroom is quite unique. Since the vanity is inside the room, the shower and toilet are in the semi-outdoor space.

Even though the space is open (the room has three walls and an opening), there are wooden slats and plants placed right next to the shower area to block the view from the outside. 

Plus, there is a shower curtain that goes all the way around all three sides. So privacy isn’t an issue at all! 

Access the outdoor swimming pool from the main entrance of the hotel.

Even though the swimming pool is small, it is still a welcoming feature at the hotel as Singapore is always hot hot hot! 

Work on your tan or read a good book on one of the outdoor chaises. 

Buy your tickets in advance to save time!

Tucked around the corner is a garden deck in the shade where you can find a few cozy spots to enjoy a quiet time. 

The garden space is exceptionally welcoming during hot weather. It is entirely in the shade where you can enjoy being outside without sitting directly in the sweltering heat.

Outdoor common pantry

There is a common pantry located at the back of the hotel. It includes a kitchenette where you can find complimentary coffee, tea and water. There is also a vending machine for other beverages. 

Plus there are many types of seating areas. Keep walking past the kitchenette and you will find a rooftop terrace overlooking the garden.

Complimentary breakfast at Artisan Boulangerie Co.

Lloyd’s Inn Singapore does not have a cafe or restaurant. 

But the hotel will give you a coupon for a complimentary breakfast at Artisan Boulangerie Co., which is only three minutes from the hotel on Killiney Road. 

Get a fresh pastry and a coffee at the local cafe at any time of the day. Just remember to bring your coupon.

The staff at Lloyd’s Inn Singapore 

The team at the front desk is welcoming and helpful. She quickly processed all my information and showed me to my room even though it was before my check-in time. 

Plus the cleaning staff is super helpful. I managed to lock myself out of my room and one of the cleaning ladies let me back in my room. 

If you need help at any point or have any questions, reception is open 24 hours a day.

Moreover, when you check out, there is luggage storage if you need to leave your bags for a few hours. And there are shower facilities if you need to freshen up before your flight.
