We were a bit apprehensive to book in this hotel due to some bad reviews. But since the price is affordable and the location is good we took the risk. We did not regret it. Ofcourse you cannot compare it with the 5 or 4 star hotels. But overall we we not disappointed. The room was clean. The bedsheets where... More

Located on busy Bencoolen Street, the Summer View hotel is a very central hotel with all forms of public transport nearby. With a taxi stand and a bus stop right outside the front doors and the Bugis MRT station a casual 10 minute walk away, the hotel's location certainly served out purposes well. Checking in was very quick and we... More

We booked and paid for this hotel about 8-9 months before our stay, and it was very reasonably priced at just over AUD$100. Prices in Singapore seems to have sky rocketed since then, and this hotel is no longer that cheap. It is close to Bugis MRT station. Althought an old hotel, and with small rooms, it is functional and... More

Spent 3 nights, 3 girls, at the Summer View Hotel after a short trip to Kuala Lumpur. Very good location, near major shopping malls. But rooms are small, toilet flush not working properly. Staff not very friendly. We had to bring down our luggage by ourselves.

OK if you like tiny rooms, filthy corridors that smell like a hospital, dirty floors and someone else's long hairs in your bathroom, traffic noise at night, meeting prostitutes and their clients in the hotel lobby and corridors (one even knocked on our door in the middle of the night!), vinyl covered mattresses and disposable pillowcases (or is that a...

The only recommendation I can make for the Summer View Hotel is its central location. On arrival we found our standard twin room extremely shabby and the bathroom dirty. We were upgraded to a "De Luxe" double bedroom which was marginally better. The standard of this room was less than "Travel Lodge" standard. The included buffet breakfast was poor, and... More

I've been in better hotels, at the same price, in places like Kuala Lumpur and Macau. If you can get in Allson or City Bayview, go ahead, since they are nearer to Orchard Road than Summer View. The nearest attraction to the hotel is the Singapore National Museum, which is around 5 minutes down Bencoolen Street. The nearest MRT station... More

I stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. It was better than i thought cause I had stayed in some three-star hotels further up the road along Bencoolen street, and one of them had ants in the room and smelly bathroom. Here, in Summer View, the room is small but the sheets are clean and comfortable. The TV has sufficient... More

Okay, Singapore is not a great value for 3 star hotels anymore. For US$96/night we expected what their website said: "100 designer furnished guest rooms. All rooms are fully carpeted and tastefully furnished..." Ours was anything but. Very small, terribly worn and stained, felt grimy, smelled musty, and very limited TV channels (they say they have satellite, but satellite is... More
