Basic and tired, in need of refurbishment, probably worth looking elsewhere. Nothing to write home about. No wifi included, very expensive rates. Good location is the best you could say about this hotel. TV malfunctioned and also the safe.

On the banks of the Singapore river in a nice area, its too far from most of the attractions for most people in the prevailing humidity. But don't worry taxis are so cheap. Our room on floor 16 was quiet but tired and not as clean as expected. Thankfully the air con worked well. Breakfast was good but evening meals... More

The room was of good size and clean, the breakfast was very good and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful. I liked the location - nice and quiet. It's easy to reach the city centre either by bus or taxi. The downside: the reason why I picked this hotel was the pool area, since I wanted to sunbathe. The sun... More

Clean rooms and nice enough location on the river. A little bit out of the hustle of the city but still convenient enough to walk to city centre. The service was quite good too. However, the prices charged for wi fi are ridiculous, how does a '4 star' hotel not have free wi fi? I think it's a real stretch... More

I've been to Singapore before and last time I stayed at the peninsular excelsior. When I compare the two the river view is not in the same league. The location of the hotel is also just a little to far from the main tourist destinations. Plus I found check in to not be the most efficient. The best staff member... More

After reading the write up was a little concerned but after staying there no problems at all in returning. Great spot for restaurants by the river and reasonable prices around $20, beer is a little pricey at $10 a LARGE glass but all together a pleasure.
