The elegant neoclassical building that is SO Sofitel Singapore today nestles among the skyscrapers of downtown Singapore. Built in 1927, this colonial gem was designed by the city’s first and foremost architecture firm, Swan and Maclaren, for the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company. It later went on to become the Cable and Wireless Building before the arrival of Ogilvy, one of the largest advertising and PR agencies in the world. In 2013, history took a new turn for this listed building which, despite its many transformations and past lives, has lost none of the magnificent period features that make this hotel SO special.
SO Sofitel Singapore is divided into two wings, Hip and Heritage – an unconventional juxtaposition of old-world glamour and avant-garde sensuality. The distinctive 5-star hotel that has taken over the historical premises at n°35 Robinson Road is the latest addition to SO Sofitel’s eclectic collection. Bursting with individual character, each of these truly exceptional boutique establishments is an architectural work of art, and SO Sofitel Singapore is no exception. With lofty ceilings, carefully restored period features and a stately neoclassical facade, the building that houses our playful and unconventional rooms and suites is imbued with a sense of historical importance.
SO Sofitel Singapore features 134 guestrooms, including 9 suites, all equipped with cutting-edge technology and designed to create an elegant, rich ambience unlike any other bedroom in Singapore. French 18th century decadence combined with local touches and contemporary comforts welcome visitors as they step in to any of the rooms at
SO Sofitel Singapore.
