In a 1920s building in Little India, the 29-room Wanderlust is a whimsical and stylish showcase of Singapore's new generation of designers. The lobby, by hot design company Asylum, is all industrial chic, with polished concrete floors, reupholstered barber's chairs, shopping carts retrofitted as chairs, and a foosball table. It shares its open space with a too-cool bar (stools are fashioned from recycled metal) and a French restaurant, Cocotte, where a huge spidery chandelier made of black desk lamps hangs above communal tables. Each of the four floors was designed by a different local architectural firm, all of which ran with their funky creativity: The second-floor rooms are brightly monochrome; the third floor has white pop-art rooms inspired by origami and pop-up books, with backlit trompe l'oeil "furnishings" and "windows" against the walls (the bed, of course, is real). The quarters can be small—some showers and toilets are tucked into frosted-glass cabinets—but they're comfortable and functional, with free Wi-Fi, coffee, and tea. Also complimentary is a yummy breakfast of homemade waffles or eggs and pastries. Staff are knowledgeable and friendly, and the cutest service touch is the "passport" presented to guests: It's filled with hand-drawn maps of cool restaurants, shops, and bazaars in the raucous Little India neighborhood.
Which room to book: The fourth-floor loft Typewriter room is especially nifty, with a sofa styled as a giant typewriter.
