My husband and I stayed for 3 nights at the beginning of November. It was the first time we stayed in Clarkes's Quay area while in Singapore. We enjoyed the hotel. Very clean; great location for restaurants and a few minutes walk to train station. The room itself was good. Not very big but that is Singapore. The only thing... More

Stayed in the executive floor, very good service, excellent breakfast, right next to Clark Quay and excellent swimming pool area. Only problem was that sometimes the taxi might not know exactly where the hotel is. Excellent MRT connectivity and no problem getting taxis either.

My room was on floor 8, overlooking the hotel pool and facing Clarke Quay, the very popular central Singapore restaurant and nightlife area. The room itself was fine. But the noise from a nearby night-club goes on until 4am--5am -- and its more than loud enough to hear through the closed bedroom windows. Not the hotel's fault, maybe. However, the... More

Swissotel this is a waste of MY PRECIOUS time. You have already wasted too much of it and too much of my cash BUT i must warn others of the Swissotel Merchant Court. I do not know what SWISSOTEL stands for but it may be appropriate for the Hotel to be called SWISS LEMON. We spent 3 nights at Swissotel... More

I have stayed at this hotel many times. It is one of the hotels which are contracted by my employer. As my employer contracts 5 hotels in Singapore, this one is #3 out of my top 5. The location is unbeatable, its a bridge away from Singapore's prime entertainment centre Clark Quay. The hotel itself is a nice building from... More

This was our first holiday in Singapore. Choosing which hotel to stay in was difficult, so many choices & locations. Eventually my partner chose Swissotel Merchant Court, mainly due to it's location, situated on the river & within 30 minutes walking distance to Orchard Road shops. If not in the walking mood then the rail is 5 minutes away. We... More

On my way TO Malaysia (my main destination of this trip) I stayed at THE STAMFORD (see also my other review for this hotel), and on my way BACK I stayed at this hotel: what a difference. This one is much smaller, more `cozy` , has a great land-scaped pool, a small (but very friendly ) lounge (The Stamford has... More

After a hiccup with the room we were assigned, Swissotel Merchant did all they could to make our stay wonderful. The staff are very friendly, the hotel perfect for families as the kids would LOVE the pool and waterslide also great for couples. Great location for nightlife and restaurants. MRT on the doorstep. On the first day I was contemplating... More

It was only a short stop on our honeymoon in Singapore, but one is sure: it is worth to spend some nights in this hotel. The location is perfect (near to china town, in opposite of Clarke Quay), the pool on the 2nd floor has got a beautiful look, our room on the 12th floor was olso OK. The restaurant... More

Delighted at the location of this hotel. The staff were attentive and helpful. Tooms smaller than I expected but well appointed and well kept. The down side was the cost of the Internet. It was outrageous. £8+ per hour was silly money especially as it took minutes to set up and they closed early prior to 60 minutes. Other than... More
