I like to think that I’m pretty travel savvy by now with the wisdom which only comes with age! (And of course lots of travelling either low or high budget).
Often travelling solo, I like to think that I know the Golden Rules however it was so nice to find a hotel like the Vagabond Club. I chose it because first, it’s Art Deco but I hadn’t realised it’s also a hotel that actually prides itself with being solo traveller friendly.
Without being obvious or over intrusive the wonderful, friendly and very professional staff make it their job to know you are back home safely and your destinations. It is a hotel that makes you want to share your days events with the staff members and you are never just a room number here!
It was built in 1950 when British Colonial rule was still in place. It’s another example of World Art Deco architecture continuing into the 1950s. The Lady Boss a term she is affectionately called by her staff, used to travel extensively on her own prior to being a hotelier. This prompted her to make the hotel seem an extension of your own family being personal, approachable and caring. The hotel certainly exceeds this.
The exterior and opulent interior are ‘wow’ moments, also the budget despite looks certainly won’t break the bank. Singapore is known as being a safe place to travel however never get complacent. The residents may be on the whole law abiding citizens but you never know about the thousands of other visitors you are ‘rubbing shoulders with’.
