If you're the type of stylish traveler who wants to avoid the usual pseudo-tropical hotels crawling with noisy tourist groups, then we have found the perfect chic hotel for you. You’ll meet your match in the Hotel Mono Singapore, which is touted as being an “independent hotel for the design-conscious nomad.”

No pseudo-tropical décor here—because the name “Hotel Mono” perfectly sums up the boutique hotel's rigid monochromatic palette of black and white. Opened in November of 2016, the 46-room hotel occupies six traditional shophouses in the heart of Chinatown, and the stark black-and-white palette only serves to enhance the arched windows and intricate architectural details even more.

The shophouses’ interiors have been transformed into minimalist spaces by award-winning Singaporean design firm Spacedge. Inside, rigid black lines form beds, stairs, flooring, and furniture and break the clean white walls. Accents can be seen in flannel gray sofas and the occasional dusty rose sideboard. Pillows are black and white as well.

“We want to provide value-for-money accommodations with a five-star service experience,” says general manager Glenn Quah. Guests can enjoy the incredibly stylish interiors, quality beddings and bathroom amenities, and spacious rooms for as low as SG$140 a night, clear proof that “chic-and-quiet” can come at a friendly price.
