One Farrer Hotel's Mint Hotel was formerly known as Urban Hotel and remains part of One Farrer Hotel’s three “hotels within a hotel.” Mint Hotel opened its doors in 2020, more than mindful of a necessary shift in hospitality in response to Covid-19. It features cutting-edge materials and designs that actively mitigate the spread of diseases or allows for easy disinfection without compromising food. This covers flooring, fabrics, wall-coverings and paints, even pillows. Mint hotel offers 5 simple, but comfortable and elegant room types with stunning almost floor-to-ceiling windows and panoramic views of Singapore’s urban landscape.
