A Look at Singapore’s Largest and Newest Serviced Residence

Located in the cultural-rich Little India enclave, the newly opened Citadines Rochor Singapore is a 320-key property designed for comfort, convenience, and fun.

The Apart’hotel is a part of Tekka Place, a mixed-use development featuring a well-curated mix of retail, dining, and fitness establishments spread across four floors.

With a total of 320 units, Citadines Rochor Singapore is the largest serviced residence in The Lion City—but that’s not the only thing you should know about it. Its prime location in Little India means that travelers can immerse themselves fully in the city-state’s rich, multi-cultural heritage without sacrificing convenience or proximity to the Central Business District.

The Apart’hotel is a part of Tekka Place, a mixed-use development featuring a well-curated mix of retail, dining, and fitness establishments spread across four floors. Aside from 6,503 square meters of retail, the building is also home to an outdoor rooftop area with space set aside for activities promoting the area’s unique heritage.

City views from the one-bedroom apartment.

Guests can enjoy contemporary living while reveling in Little India’s bohemian vibe that’s found in the maze of side streets and dishes well-loved within the local Indian community. A quick stroll around will bring them to ornate Hindu temples, goldsmith shops, sari stores, and flower stalls.

A must-visit? The shopping mall Mustafa Centre, which is open around-the-clock with more than 300,000 products spanning electronics, groceries, textiles, and jewelry.

Follow the locals and check out Tekka Centre, Singapore’s largest indoor wet market, which purveys fresh produce from around the region. There’s also the LASALLE College of the Arts diagonally across the Rochor River— worth a visit for its striking architecture that resembles a massive black box turned inside out, so as to retain a connection to its surrounding streets.

Hang out at the Residents’ Lounge.

Art lovers will be pleased to know that the property is within walking distance to the arts, heritage, and design precinct of Bugis and Bras Basah. From here, it’s a breeze to travel to the city via the Rochor and Little India MRT Stations—the former is a mere three-minute walk away!

Designed for both long and short-term stays, Citadines Rochor Singapore offers a variety of apartment types that will suit business and leisure travelers, from studios to one-bedroom apartments. Plus, dual-key apartments are available for those traveling in larger groups.

The Residents’ Kitchen is a communal kitchen designed to encourage socializing among guests at the various cooking stations. Complimentary condiments are also available for use when preparing meals.
