A good hotel with friendly staff. Cheaper than staying in downtown Singapore. Plenty of buses into the city or just hail a taxi. Interesting heritage area. Lots of places to eat and great variety of food. Shopping centres nearby and relatively short walk to East Coast Park. Buffet breakfast plentiful, but basic (hot and cold items). Only criticism was the... More

If you like good food, no place better than East Coast Road in Singapore and the Santa Grand is in the middle of it all. Nice rooms. Good internet connection. Decent shower. 6th floor pool (open 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM) is long and narrow on roof top. An okay breakfast with a somewhat grumpy staff member. Front desk hotel... More

We only had about 20 hours between flights so the location was ideal, close to the airport and not far from the city for an evening visit. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful and our room was clean and spacious enough. As suggested we paid a bit extra and also specified a room with window. The room had a balcony... More

Another objective review from FattM. As usual, your experience may vary. In Singapore for a few days, sort of on business. Needed a hotel on the East Coast that wouldn't kill my meagre budget but that also wasn't either a noontime knocking shop or stuck in the middle of Jalan Nowhere. An associate of mine booked me into the Santa... More

Their location is good, just a S$25 taxi from the airport, not too far from the city centre, but most importantly only a short walk from some great Asian eating places! The hotel staff could not have been more helpful, the wifi & tablets great and the rooftop lappool essential. Although the room was tight for us with the standard... More

I had read many reviews before deciding to use this hotel. Many of the comments noted that the rooms were small so I booked a deluxe room. So glad I did as it was a good size, with plenty of space and a large bathroom. Other people we met said that our room was significantly bigger than theirs although they... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the East Coast area, Santa Grand Hotel East Coast is nestled at the heart of Katong, well known for its Peranakan heritage and culture. The hotel is also within the larger Joo Chiat area, which was designated as the national heritage conservation area by the Singapore Government with the intention of preserving its rich history, culture and architecture. This Peranakan themed boutique hotel aims to introduce Singapore's unique culture and tradition to visitors, just like its predecessors at Santa Grand Hotel Bugis, Santa Grand Hotel Little India and Santa Grand Hotel Chinatown. Santa Grand Hotel East Coast is built on a 2-storey conservation frontage backed by a 5-storey building. Guests will feel welcomed in the lobby, decorated in bright Peranakan colors, that comes with comfortable seating areas and a business center. Rooms come in four different designs, themes and colors that guests will feel the freshness and variety each time they stay with us. A roof top swimming pool and Jacuzzi offer guests a chance to relax in a tranquil environment with a bird's eye view of the low-lying housing architecture symbolic of the Joo Chiat heritage. Bright colors are used on design of the hotel, similar to the patented sophistication seen in the homes of the Peranakans, creating a warm and inviting ambience and leaving guests with fond memories of the stay. Be it for leisure travelers or travelers on business trip, Santa Grand Hotel East Coast is the place you want to stay in to immerse in a uniquely Singapore culture. Take a walk around the area and you will be amazed by the large variety of food to choose from. A definite must-try would have to be the famous Katong laska, well-liked by Singaporeans and visitors alike, this signature dish can be counted as one of the most popular favorites in Singapore! For outdoors, the hotel is near the popular East Coast Parkway where guests can exercise or just relax amidst the cooling breeze along the Singapore coastline. ... more   less
