SMART FACILITIES AND FRIENDLY STAFF

The moment I entered the historic Boat Quay building of 5footway.inn, I was welcomed by a mix of old and new designs from traditional paper light installments to a modern self-check-in machine. Photos of the neighborhood in past times hang next to modern drawings and photography by local Singaporean artists, such as black-and-white images by internationally renowned photojournalist Edwin Koo.

I could also tell that the staff was very passionate about their country as they carefully explained to me the story behind the building and how coolies, foreign immigrants to Singapore, transported goods around the five-foot narrow path between the Singapore River and the boat quay houses for trade. Moreover, the walls of the lobby area are decorated with Polaroid photos of staff and guests, Singlish phrases to know and a smart map of the most important neighborhoods and attractions around Singapore. Everything is well thought through to make their guests’ stay as pleasant as possible.
