Stayed 1 night in mono. I would say it was kind of disappointing seeing how good the reviews were. Comfort level was not there.

Pros:
1. Good location
2. Polite staff

Cons:
1. Room was small, the table was small and uncomfortable, how can anyone possibly use their laptop and work there if need to.
2. Room is very bare and basic, the finishing wasn't good, wall paint dirty at some areas, it is just pretty raw, I hate the floor tiles.
3. Aircon could not be switched off when it gets too cold, u can only turn it up.
4. The room was damp in the morning, condensation on the floor tiles, floor was damp, u can't go bare foot, even the room slippers make u slip cos the floor was wet.
5. Bedsheets felt like it had a sticky layer, I have probably slept in at least 20-30 hotels room cos I have been travelling for 30 years and stayed in budget/business/luxury hotel and apartments, but never encountered bed sheets that felt like this. I could hardly sleep.
6. Noise, its true, u can hear people walking, talking along corridors, and tv noise from other rooms. pretty bad.
7. Toilet shower head was mouldy.

This boutique hotel is conveniently located a stone’s throw away from Chinatown MRT, just walk past a row of shophouses and you’ll see the distinct black-and-white 3-storey shophouse that has been converted into Hotel Mono.

The room is surprisingly spacious for a shophouse boutique hotel and very clean. Every furniture is only in black and white colors. Unique monotone. We have two comfortable queen beds with four pillows on each bed, a sofa bed, a fixed long table to the wall that can seat two persons. There is also a proper wardrobe for us to hang our clothes and a side bench to put our bags and luggage. The bathroom is not big but sufficient, and we love the scent of the body wash and shampoo. The bath towels are also soft and fluffy.

This hotel doesn’t have the luxury of swimming pool, gym or restaurant/cafe but it’s good enough for a short staycation. Finding food is not a problem as there are a lot of eateries and restaurants in the area, and you can also walk over to Chinatown Point and People’s Park Complex for a great variety of food.

Will we be back to Hotel Mono? Most probably and this time we may try the loft room with the loft bed, and when dining out is allowed again.

Room is smaller than expected although true to pictures.
The front office staff were absolutely kind and friendly.

Basic toiletries are provided in a pouch; shampoo, bathing soap, sanitary bag, toothbrush set, shaving kit, slippers, hairdryer etc.
Two towels per set, consisting of a large and small one.
Water kettle is provided, along with coffee and tea.

Windows can be opened.
Surrounding is amazing as there were so many food options.
Walking distance to Chinatown MRT & Chinatown Point.
Recommended restaurant: 东方美食

Some room for improvement:
The mini fridge is not very cold.
Cleanliness could be better as there are a couple small ants on the table, bedside tables were a little dusty.

Overall, very happy with the stay due to the convenience and basic comfort for the price paid. Would be keen to try the larger room types in the future.

i really liked the hotel, but then i like quirky things. as long as you are prepared for noises (it's a converted shophouse structure with a busy road right below for god's sakes) you'll be fine. room was immaculately clean, design is black & white simply classy, good view of the comings & goings on the street below (with accompanying people & vehicle sounds). the neighboring room had a bunch of rowdy kids but that's just down to bad luck, i suppose. was a little confusing getting to & leaving the room as you traverse the buildings so got to remember the route & recognize the right doors! was a little disturbed that the hotel hosts covid quarantine guests so would had been nice to find out about that before booking.

I have prepared myself after reading some of the reviews here and I’m totally agreed with them.

Because it is a boutique hotel converted from an old shophouses, so the sound barrier wasn’t good enough. You could hear people walking pass your door outside, people closing their door and people speaking near your room.

I got my small room that situated in the middle of the hotel, which has a window but not looking outside. Those who familiar with old houses would know that’s a airy space in the centre of every old houses. So you could hear the raindrop when it get heavy.

Other than the noise, I could say it is still a comfortable stay and the staffs were very friendly here.
