The New Majestic Hotel (extreme right) is now a boutique hotel in Singapore's Bukit Pasoh Road

The New Majestic Hotel, on Bukit Pasoh Road in Singapore's Chinatown is a hotel built in 1928. The building originally consisted of four shophouses and a restaurant.

In 2003, the exterior was restored to its original state,[1] and the lobby ceiling was stripped to reveal the previous paintwork. It was reopened as a boutique hotel. The restoration earned it a national Architectural Heritage award.[1] Furnishings include old dentist's chairs and theatre seats,[2] as well as more modern items.
