Centrally located within Far East Square, and conceived with the aim of revitalising and sustaining the heritage conservation area, this 37-room boutique hotel was converted from the upper floors of a row of conserved shophouses, and takes its cue from the area’s rich heritage.

As part of the authentic experience, guests enter the hotel via the Fuk Tak Chi museum – formerly a temple built by early Chinese immigrants to honour the gods for their safe voyage. This presents a unique setting for them to relive the arrival experience of the immigrants. Short flights of stairs were added between adjacent shophouse units to accommodate the floor height variations, thus facilitating movement along the otherwise uneven corridor while adding to the uniqueness of the hotel.
