InterContinental Hotels Group has signed its
fourth Holiday Inn Express Hotel in Singapore.
Expected to open in 2018, the Holiday Inn
Express Singapore Serangoon will be situated at
the crossroads of Little India and Serangoon, close to Singapore’s
commercial and industrial areas.
The select service hotel will add

including Chye Seng Huat Hardware café, Char Restaurant and the
1952 Brewing Company brewery, bar and restaurant.

independent dining experiences, the area is favoured for its
hipster coffee shops and retro shopping experiences. Little India
and its eclectic roadside stalls are just a five-minute walk away,
while the closest MRT is just 500 metres away.
