So Sofitel Singapore (starting from $194/night)
A more definitive fusion of classic and modern, So Sofitel Singapore is a perfect example of that.
Exterior wise, the hotel keeps the original architecture of the old building and has fused metal and glass into the structure, making it look like a modern marvel rather than a historical piece.
Similarly in its interior, So Sofitel adopted the minimalistic yet regal design. The white and grey framed walls will make you feel like a Disney princess or prince with its classic interior design.
Despite it being more modern architecturally, So Sofitel still houses its classical features that will make your royal fantasies come true.
