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.
