We stayed in January 2014. We arrived about 7am after an overnight flight from Rome. We did not expect to be allowed in our room at this time, but surprisingly, we were, which was great as we were very tired. We had booked a triple room for my husband, my teenage son and myself and were upgraded to the "Royal Residences" in the adjacent block. The room was very spacious, almost new and had a kitchenette, balcony and large bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. The room was actually great! There was a construction site next door which was very noisy during the day but as we were mostly out was not a great problem. It was nice and quiet at night. I did not find the buffet breakfast much fun. There seemed to be a never ending stream of large tour groups in the hotel so it was always very busy. The breakfast area was far too small for the number of guests and it was hard for the staff to keep the food supplied, hard to get a table, very noisy and chaotic. The food choice was not great either, mainly asian dishes. The location was quite good, less than 5 minutes walk to an MRT station and with several bus stops nearby also. Overall the hotel staff were pleasant and helpful,but at times inefficient. The room was great, no so much the breakfast.
