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

I got a good deal here and was therefore surprised to be upgraded on arrival to the 'Royal residence' - this is a set of apartments in a tower block across from the hotel car park. If these can be booked separately, I really recommend them. You get (for Singapore) a large room with storage space, a kitchenette, nice bathroom... More

Not far from the hotel are two shopping area , Velocity and one other plaza which I cant recalled the name. On the opposite direction, is the famous Newton Circus food centre,... More
