Must admit were nervous booking this hotel for a family stay for 5 nights over new year. 2 adults and 2 children. For a family room which was a double and single bed + rollaway. Sure the hotel smells musty.. probably due to its age and reliance on air con... which one needs in Singapore. Room was generally clean and... More

仕事で仕方なく泊まることになりました。 ホテルの受付は全く教育をうけておらず対応も遅い。部屋は臭くてエアコンの効きが悪い。 エアコンをつけても湿気ている。 ロビーは中国人が占拠していて落ち着かない。 朝食はかなりイマイチ。 褒めるところはあまり無いですが、駅へは徒歩圏内です。 二度と泊まることはないでしょう。 検討されている方は是非違うところを選択ください。 The hotel is one of the worst hotel I experienced. Hotel staff are not trained, room is stinky and sweaty. So many Chinese are at lobby and they are always lousy speakers. Never gonna choose this hotel.

This hotel can hardly call it self a 4 star establishment. The hotel is dated and in desperate need of refurbishments. The room and service is basic. I would like to see this hotel once it's brought into the modern times

I do not rate this hotel highly due to. 1. Cleanliness - this has to be addressed as the bathroom was dirty, carpet and blind had cigarette burn, blind that can not be closed fully 2. Decor - old tired and need to be rejuvenated with a fresh coat of paint, furniture replaced.... 3. Breakfast - little variety to choose... More

I am currently staying at the Hotel Royal. Don't believe any negative reviews. I'm fussy, grumpy and middle aged and I am totally happy here. The key to good service is 'be nice'. Brilliant staff, plenty of choice at brekkie, OK restaurant meals, spacious rooms with iron/board, kettle, fridge. Clean, good room service, good local shopping, excellent transport links and...

Bath room sealants were pealing off. After shower bath floor had water. Reception staff were very moody never smiles. Hotel had... More

This was the place where I saw friendliest staff. They arranged me an early check in on demand and also made my room in short time. All my requests were fulfilled like high floor, baby coat etc. Location is great as its only a short walk from Trains and food court. Spacious enough rooms.

three nights in this hotel was almost too much. On a positive staff were helpful and breakfast was ok. Room average, bathroom below average. Worse was the strong cigarette smell the minute you exited your room even though we were on a non smoking floor! The whole hotel is well overdue a makeover. Pool area was also disappointing. Don't think... More
