The pool and the staff
The tv reception
The rooms were very large, particularly for Singapore.
We are retired professionals who have been traveling in SE Asia for 6 months and this was, of all the many places we’ve stayed, one of the most expensive and worst of our hotel stays. Singapore is an expensive city so the room, for its size, was fairly priced but that is about that was positive about our stay there. Staff was nonexistent at the entry door and there were signs for everything except for reception. We located reception around the corner and staff were professional but nothing more than businesslike. No smiles, no greetings and no information about the hotel or the neighborhood. We even had to ask where the elevators were. The room was large but very dated, like a movie set from the 1960’s. The bed was uncomfortable and firm and we could feel the coils through the sheet (not sure there was a mattress cover on top of the mattress). The WiFi was slow and extremely limited - all the devices in the room, combined, were limited to 4 GB over our hotel stay (they called this “fair play”) with no way to monitor our usage. Our WiFi was shut off on the second morning, apparently for using the allotted amount although it is impossible to know how we could have done so when we were out all day and did little more than check email, do some mapping and check social media (no music streaming, video downloading or streaming or anything data intensive). We called for some ice to the room and we needed to call a second time and waited well over a half an hour for it. It is located near the river but there really is nothing nearby, walking distance, for dining or shopping, so while a safe location, nothing conveniently located nearby. The pool looked lovely but we didn’t have a chance to use it.
Great location for quick and easy public transportation. Friendly staff. Triple room comfortable and neat. Breakfast was delicious with wide variety. Pool lovely. Overall excellent value for money.
No balconies or smoking rooms but was large and comfortable and not far distance to smoking area directly outside from lobby lifts.
Room is big enough
The room has only a small window, pillow was too small and old
The staff were excellent & very helpful with any questions or concerns we had. We booked a room with courtyard and access to the pool from our room was great. The executive lounge access was excellent and a great place to get away from the crowd
The happy hour beer buy one get one free, the cost of one beer is the same as buying two.
