I have just returned from a trip to Singapore and stayed at the Merchant court. It is a bit tired and the restaurant too dear but the place was clean, friendly and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I would go again. Just don't expect it to be the advertised four star. More like three and a half given... More

no 1 Hotel in Singapore in my view. Staff are well trained with great service to make you feels at home. Always meet customers with a smile and very helpful with direction if you want to go somewhere. Hotel is handy to all locations.facilities for young children is great.

Being half Singaporean but living overseas my family and I have stayed at many hotels in Singapore over the past 15 years ranging from dodgy ones in the cheap part of town to Marina Bay Sands at the other end of the spectra. However, during a 17 days stay at Swissotel Merchant Court in Feb. 2015 this hotel proved to... More

Excellent hotel and location. Rooms very clean and comfortable and breakfast buffet amazing. However concierge service rubbish, marked the hotel in wrong place on map so caused confusion to begin with! No use getting taxis when told no need to book one! Yet had no problem at raffles hotel with their concierge getting us taxis!

Very convenient location and helpful staff. Good room service with daily Nestle chocolates and a pod coffee machine. We also had a great view from the room. The pool is a nice place to relax and the enjoyed the executive lounge. I will highly recommend the hotel!

Directly across from the MRT. And right across the river from all the action of Clarke Quay. Good rates for Singapore as well. Easy to navigate to and from, especially for the taxis. We would certainly return!

A bit tired in parts but overall a very good hotel in a great location, handy for all of the sites, especially with the cheap taxis. Room was good but ready for a refurbish, very clean though and serviced really well every day. Drinks prices as with most hotels, demand a mortgage, but plenty of alternative bars in the area....

The hotel has been around for a few decades and the rooms look a bit tired. However, we found the standard of service is still of a reasonable high standard which is... More

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
