Hotel is average, but still had a pleasant stay. Hotel room was very dark and not very well decorated. Hotel walls are not painted very well and choice of colours made it appear dark and it was poorly lit. However, room was clean and spacious and the maids were very pleasant and helpful. Apart from Phleen, hotel staff need to... More

Stayed 3 nights here. The location was great and the breakfast good- staff in the cafe were friendly and attentive. The hotel reception staff were unwelcoming, short and unfriendly. Our room was something out of the film Beetle Juice. There were blood stains on the carpet and the decor was disgusting. There was a see through glass wall and window... More

The Strand hotel is good value for money, but certainly not a five star hotel. On previous trips to Singapore I have stayed at the Raffles and Marriott Orchard Road, both of which are much better but also priced several times higher than the Strand. Rooms are OK, but the bathtub shower was slippery. A rubber mat was provided but... More

Stayed here 3 nights...August 2013. Huge construction MRT work is going. 7-11 & food court near the hotel. Easy to get Bus & taxi. We didn't like their breakfast . So typical. No variation. Small bathroom . Smell on the floor.

We stayed in this hotel in 2 queen rooms. The bathroom has a glass full length window separating it from the lounge / bedroom..this means that when you take a shower the curtains in the lounge room need to be pull and even then everyone in the room has a full view of what you are doing. If you want... More

Location wise, a few steps to the nearest MRT station. Big room, accommodating staff, basic room amenities. With free daily breakfast. I made the right decision in staying there. There's an ongoing MRT station construction in the area the reason the road is closed. Other than that the place is recommendable.

Place is very close to MRT stations and to bus stops. Taxi stand is very closeby. There is a huge construction site in front of hotel due to tube expansion but we asked for a room on back side which has no side impact at all. Breakfast was very basic and needs to be improved. Rooms/hotel interior is well designed... More

It was the worst place to stay... don't read "location" there are hundreds of hotels near the same area where all the attractions are in Singapore. The room we had was painted in grey with a freaking bed conected with the ceiling colored in fucsia color. It was very humid and the AC very loud and impossible to live. Thank... More

There are two MRT stations, which are near the hotel (Doby Ghaut and Bras Basah). We find the location of the hotel very convenient since we used the Metro a lot in exploring Singapore. Aside from the MRT stations, there are also 2 bus stops that are just few walks away from it. I also appreciate their fast reply to... More
