The Vagabond is an upmarket boutique hotel in a stylishly renovated art deco building in Little India. French architect and interior designer Jacques Garcia turned what was formerly a brothel into an idiosyncratically stylish hotel with 41 rooms. The reception desk is a solid brass rhinoceros, for example, and there are red curtains, gold ornamental trees, a gold elephant and striking paintings and photographs on the walls. This salon is where the hotel's artists in residence show off their work for guests. 

While compact – a standard room is 22 to 24 square metres – the room has a light, friendly, elegant feel that continues the hotel's arty theme. There are no less than 10 framed prints and two hanging lamps on the wall behind a comfortable king-sized bed. A red floral screen separates the bedroom from a stylish red bathroom.

Club rooms and suites are bigger – up to 34 square metres – and give guests free use of the executive club lounge downstairs.

Rooms start from $190 per night.
