Singapore hotels are expensive. We were therefore happy to find Stand Hotel at a fairly reasonable rate of 160 Singapore Dollars for a Deluxe Double Room. Booking was done over telephone and we did not have to pay any advance as we were scheduled to reach before 5 in the evening. We had taken two rooms as we have two... More

Strand hotel is a cozy, clean and comfortable hotel. It's located in a central area, close to popular tourist attractions. The staff at the front desk are very helpful and pleasant. The rooms were nice and comfortable. Luckily we received a room at the back and so we weren't disturbed by the MRT project. The breakfast is pretty basic however... More

My son (adult) and I stayed at the Strand in a twin room for a total of 11 days during April, 12 and enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We had no issues with the MRT building project outside, taxis found us, easy access to Bras Basah MRT ( just round the corner), 7-11 and Kopitiam across the road, coffee... More

The Strand Hotel is as good as ever but you must be aware that there is a huge civil engineering project at the Bras Besar road end of Bencoolen Street. Access by road is more difficult and you will find it very difficult to get a taxi outside the hotel so allow more time if you are going to the... More

We spent 3 nights at the Strand Hotel, en-route between the UK and Australia. Had booked via email with their helpful staff (thanks Philina). All we really wanted was somewhere to sleep off our jet-lag in between seeing sights, and the Strand was just fine for this. The location is perfect for busy visitors. A few minutes from main shopping... More

We stayed here last February 19-21,2012. We were 12 in a group and we reserved 3 rooms. The hotel is centrally located. It is near Bugis, Sim Lim Square, Bras Basah station, Dhouby ghaut station and Orchard Road. Wendy's, 711 store, Kopitian(a food court) is located opposite the hotel. There are also many shops and eateries outside the hotel. Riding... More

We were staying at family room for 4 adults, the room is very long ~ 1 Queen & 2 single beds. The toilet was clean! Complimentary breakfast was semi-buffet + American Breakfast set, taste good too. We chose this hotel because it 's the cheapest hotel we could get with free parking (can park at least more than 10 cars).... More

Stayed in Strand for 3 nights. Check in was a breeze. Our deluxe room 915 was spacious with clean bed, cabinet and bathroom. Only downside was that the carpet needed more thorough cleaning. We ended up really using the slippers they provided. Water pressure and water temp were great. Refrigerator was working well. Great for the mineral water & soda... More

It's very unclean. The bedclothes and towels are really awful. They permit smelling in the rooms so all rooms smell badly. Breakfast is the same every day and there are ants on the tables which eventually appear on your plate. The only thing that is good about this hotel is the location. Internet doesn't work. I had to call every... More
