Singapore's Claremont Hotel is up for sale

The Claremont Hotel

The Claremont Hotel in Singapore's Little India district has been put up for sale. The asking price for the eight-story, freehold budget hotel is about S$90 million (USD $66.5 million), or S$1 million per room.

Knight Frank is marketing the 90-room property through an expression of interest exercise that closes on July 28. The hotel is owned by a company that lists its sole shareholder as Parvinder Chopra, a Singapore permanent resident, according to a company search. Chopra is a U.S.-based hotelier.

"Investors could potentially reposition the hotel by reconfiguring and adding more rooms, subject to approval from the relevant authorities," said Mary Sai, executive director of investment and capital markets at Knight Frank Singapore.
