Located in the heart of the heritage enclave of Bras-Basah Bugis, Mercure Singapore Bugis truly embodies the multicultural soul and dynamic pulse of the Lion City – from the specially commissioned heritage artworks in our interiors to the vibrant location of Bugis area, Mercure Singapore Bugis aim to create a locally inspired experience where guests stay connected to the country.
This year, Hotel adopted the striking facade panels of yellow, green, red and blue colour as the primary visuals for Red Packet to pay tribute to the now-defunct Rochor Centre.

Did You Know?
Mercure Singapore Bugis’s facade colour is a reflection of Rochor Centre, a heritage icon situated in Bugis area.
The Housing & Development Board (HDB) built the coloured flats in 1977 and for the past decades, the brightly coloured flats have become an iconic landmark at Rochor area.
In November 2011, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and Singapore Land Authority (SLA) announced that the land where Rochor Centre is situated would be acquired to make way for the new North-South Expressway. The trademark flats were demolished on 26 June 2018.
Hotel is proud to represent a part of heritage in the Bras-Basah Bugis enclave, and will continue to spread the vibrancy to stay true to our mission to create a locally inspired experience. #discoverlocal
