For those who are looking for an affordable hip hotel with free internet surfing in the heart of Singapore, check out Hangout@Mt Emily (1º18.203N 103º50.874E). It is quietly tucked away behind Dhoby Ghuat. I was there for a small private function at the rooftop terrace (aptly named Look Out) which was breezy and overlooks the city.
In fact, all their facility names end with "Out". Veg Out is their lounge where there a plasma TV and pool table. Log Out corner has 6 PCs for free surfing. The rooms are called Zonk Out.
Also located there is Wild Rocket, the restaurant by lawyer turn chef WiLin, which has been winning accolades in various magazines.
