Artyzen Singapore is one of the latest new hotels to open last year in late 2023. I had the opportunity to stay there for a night and here’s my honest review of my staycation experience.
Artyzen Singapore is under Artyzen Hospitality Group which has hotels in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Suzhou, Zhuhai, and Macau. Artyzen Singapore is their flagship hotel in Southeast Asia.

It is located opposite The Singapore EDITION which also happens to be another new hotel, near Hard Rock Cafe in Orchard. Artyzen is about a 15-minute walk from Orchard MRT station and to some people, it is quite a distance from the main bustling shopping belt along Orchard Road. But to me, any hotel near Orchard is a good location for both locals and tourists. It is near many attractions in Singapore.
Service & Hospitality
Service was impeccable. Maybe the hotel is relatively empty and the staff was new so we received better service. Every staff who walked past us would greet us with a smile. In the evening, their staff would come into our rooms to prepare our beds and replenish the bottles with clean drinking water.
Our Grand Terrace room
There are 142 rooms in total and 8 types of rooms to choose from. We had the opportunity to stay one night in their Grand Terrace King room. This 89 square metre room has a semi-private garden which is shared with the neighbouring room. It is relatively spacious and big compared to the other newer hotels in Singapore.
It is also equipped with:
- 1 King Bed
- B&O wireless Bluetooth speaker
- 55-inch LED television with international TV channels
- Deep-soaking bathtub
- Premium bathroom amenities with signature, exclusive scent
- Dyson hairdryer
- Braun alarm clock/ wireless charger
- Nespresso coffee machine
- Complimentary premium Nordaq bottled water
From the list above, you can see that the rooms are equipped with several premium facilities like Dyson hairdryer and designer bath amenities by James Heeley. Even their toilet bowl has an automatic bidet.
All of their rooms have a balcony and ceiling fan so that you can enjoy the fresh air and breeze if you like. This is probably the first time I came across a hotel room with a ceiling fan. The room also has very high ceiling too.
The bathroom has a nice bathtub but we did not have time to use it because we were only here for a night. And there was a nice rooftop pool for us to dip in.
The whole range of bath amenities is by Heeley, a Parisian perfume house.
The bathroom is partitioned with sliding fluted doors which can be slide away make the room look even more spacious.
There’s a separate toilet on the opposite.
The mini bar has a Nespresso coffee machine and a stainless steel pour-over kettle for you to brew yourself a cup of Bacha Coffee or a pot of 1872 Clipper Tea.
This is the semi-private garden which is shared with the other guests living in the adjacent room. To me, this garden is quite unnecessary as there are plenty of chill-out spaces at the rooftop to just chill and lounge.

There’s a beautiful 1.2 metre-deep infinity pool at the rooftop which overlooks Orchard Road. It is a small pool but a unique one as part of the pool base is made of clear glass and is extended out of the building. So when you swim over to that spot, it feels like you are floating and swimming in mid-air as you can see through the base.
Artyzen Singapore also has a small spa where you can do spa treatments. It’s close to their 24-hour gym as well as a space for wellness activities like yoga classes or other exercise group classes.
The lobby is next to Cafe Quenino where you can enjoy your ala carte hotel breakfast. Our breakfast was generally okay, not too outstanding. But the food at Quenino by Victor Liong, a fine dining restaurant, located on the 4th floor of the hotel, is fantastic. And it is worth dining there.
The lobby area is quite small and it has a limited seating area. I guess you probably don’t have to wait too long to check in since their staff are pretty efficient and you can even do the check-in process in the hotel rooms.
Overall, I would rate it a 4.5/5 for the overall hotel experience. The interior is beautiful and service was great, but the hotel didn’t have much of an X-factor to truly stand out from other luxury boutique hotels.
