While overall experience was ok, the price they were charging for a night was too high. I stayed there for a week for a workshop and did enjoy the central location of the hotel. The vicinity has everything, from a mall across the road where you can find almost everything to a nightlife area that is open till the wee... More

We would normally stay around City Hall area on visits to Singapore, either for work or pleasure, having been to the Swissotel Stamford and Fairmount hotels many times. Due to the Youth Olympics kicking off this area prices skyrocketed the weekend we were planning to pass through Singapore so we opted for the Swissotel Merchant Court. We found a gem... More

Stayed at this hotel in March 2010 with my wife and 2 kids, as well as my parents and mother in-law. I have to say that this is by far the "best overall" hotel I have stayed at in 25 years of travelling throughout Asia. The location right on Clarke Quay is fantastic. Great spot to catch the train, taxi... More

You can walk 15 minutes in either direction and hit all the Chinatown Hawker Centers, Bars on Neil Road, and Raffles and other tourist attractions on the other side. Buses are right outside practically and the Subway is right there too. (Easy to get to airport, Orchard Rd, etc) Right on Clark Quay if you like that sort of nightlife-I... More

This hotel offers very comfortable rooms in a prime location in the heart of Singapore. The rooms are fully equipped with anything one might ask for - except for free wifi. Wifi is available, but rather expensive. Breakfast is just gorgeous. You name it, they´ve got it. It´s especially pleasant to sit outside along the Singapore River, watch the city... More

I used to give five to this hotel but this time I was disappointed by the room and service. This time we were given a lousy and noisy room, it was difficult to sleep because of the noise coming from the other room bathrooms. I think that those poor rooms are reserved to the people who book on special offer... More

We stayed at the Swissotel Merchants Court on July 2010. We arrived early afternoon, check in was fast, staff efficient. The room was spacious, comfortable bed, and a good bathroom with bathtub. The closet is small. standard buffet breakfast. The pool is clean, but small and with only few loungers, so you need to go there early in the morning... More

I chose this hotel purely for location. Metro directly opposite makes getting around Sinagpore a breeze and cheap too. Pool area adequate but could be vastly improved as the poolside snack bar takes up the entire side. his results in crammed loungers on one side ( you have to sit in regimented lines) .
