Okay, so we've already showed you all around the Space Suite inside Singapore's Wanderlust Hotel, but now we're going inside another of the boutique hotel's themed rooms and this time, it's not so out of this world. It's the Typewriter Suite.

On the top floor of this 29-room hotel in the Little India neighborhood sits a range of themed suites, each conceptualized by local design company fFurious. And once we walked into the place and saw those huge typewriter keys above our heads, and the custom bench plus that mid-century modern couch, it was decided: should we return to Singapore and to the Wanderlust, this is the suite we'd want. It's kooky enough to have novelty appeal, but not so crazy that it's uncomfortable.

It's thanks to eccentric features like this place that the Wanderlust is one of the Design Hotels. You can stay in the cheapest room category, where the look is all about a single Pantone color, or rooms like enlarged papier-mache creations, or upgrade to the level of the Space and Typewriter suites. Just do know that if you want a specific suite, you must book the "Whimsical" level and then request it, or risk ending up with any design.

Inside the Typewriter you'll find a flatscreen TV, bench and couch, soaking tub, double sinks, separate toilet and shower cubes, and a bed lofted above it all. It's just missing a desk, for being so writing-themed. It can be super affordable for a suite, starting at $230 SGD per night ($185 USD) if you score an advance rate. We just toured the room (ask nicely at reception), but we'll be back. Oh yes, we'll be back.
