M Social Singapore is a boutique hotel designed by well-known French interior designer Philippe Starck. With a focus on contemporary lifestyle, this 293-room boutique hotel is said to infused with creativity, humor, and love. Just like the Studio M, which also resides along the historic Singapore River, M Social Singapore is one of the hotels in Singapore that features the space-saving loft-style rooms. Located at Robertson Quay, M Social Singapore is about 20-30 mins walking distance from Clark Quay MRT. Although not that accessible as the others comparatively, the hotel provides free shuttle bus services from various locations such as Paragon, Chinatown point, harborfront center etc.
The entrance of the hotel from the lobby really reminds me of a disco with colorful paintings and lightings, bringing up a lot of energies. Undoubtedly, the hotel is more attractive to relatively younger (and local) guests. There is a self-check-in kiosk for guest. But for us, we did not use the self-check-in kiosk. The receptionist who served us is quite friendly and the entire process only took merely about 5-10 mins.
Here is the room tour for the Loft Queen room in M Social Singapore.
We booked a Loft Queen room with 22 sq size. The Premier Loft room is a slightly more expensive type. Although with the same size, the latter looks like to have different layout with the bed on the second floor (mezzanine level). To be honest, I will prefer the latter so that we can watch TV while resting on the bed. Coincided with its contemporary spirit, the interior of the room is chic and industrial, equipped with stainless steel and wooden furniture.
Small as it is, we can, however, feel the dedication of the hotel from every single detail. Check out that yummy snacks in the below photos!
The swimming pool is on the level 5. It’s not very big and has only 1.2m deep. Nearby you can find a small gym. For a boutique hotel like this, that’s more than enough in my opinion.
What really impressed me was my breakfast at the legendary renowned Beast & Butterflies restaurant and bar. The interior design is really a funky mix&match style. The soft sofa surrounded by lines of books and fluid lights bring up a lot of coziness. Whereas the iPad on the walls and the lighting marble table and chairs seem to bring me to some future world.
In addition to the big spread for breakfast, there is a robot who delivers supplies to guests and guides them for breakfast and another robot who makes different types of eggs (scrambled or sunny side up)! Wow!

Loft hotel is not quite a new concept in Singapore. M Social Singapore will definitely be a good choice if you are a lofty room lover. The contemporary and funky designs will definitely make your stay interesting. In addition, compared to the relatively high cost of a stay in Singapore, M Social Singapore is also a budget-friendly for travelers. The downside might be the relatively long distance from the Clarke Quay MRT – The quiet riverside view and stay come with a consequence of a 20-30 mins walk from Clarke Quay MRT. Nevertheless, you can consider M Social if you are planning on a stay in Singapore, we had quite a pleasant experience in our staycation here.
