Capitalizing on the city’s evocative history, owner Narelle McMurtrie converted two rows of Chinese shop houses into 10 suites that call to mind early-20th-century Asia. Antique doors inset with colored glass, latticed wood dividers, and a reading room in a former coffee roastery, along with the sounds of trishaws pedaling by, add era-appropriate ambience.

Insider Tip:

Asian films are projected each evening in the courtyard of the hotel's Kopi Cine Café.
