Located in the heart of Chinatown district, within proximity to Chinatown MRT Station + less than 20 minutes’ drive away from Orchard Road, is the Historical hotel... a red hotel.. THE OPERA HOUSE “LAI CHUN YUEN” HOTEL. It was once a Chinese Opera Theatre “Lai Chun Yuen” where opera stars from Hong Kong and China came to perform, where it then turned in to a cinema in 1900's until it was bombed in World War II. What a history. The rooms aren't so spacious but it's cozy and you get to experience a hint of history and art within. The lobby and the corridors are just so cinematic and "RED" you just can't imagine it from the streets. The room rate is quite reasonable too. Perhaps experience it for yourself.
