I enjoyed two great nights at this hotel in mid April. As is the case with most hotels in Singapore it is only about 20 mins from the airport and pretty much right downtown. My room was right beside reception and had a magnificent view down the Padang with the cities tallest buildings beyond. The room was very spacious with a large comfortable bed and an equally large bathroom. All the amenities were great. The only issue I had was with the power; when turning off the tv you need to be careful as it also knocked off the power to anything else plugged in to the power points beside it if you used the bedside switch. I thought initially my iron had died so called for a replacement which also seemed to have failed. It was pointed out to me by the maintenance guy to take care when turning the tv on and off. Strange. Another guest was caught out by the hot water heater isolation switch being amongst the light switches when you walk into the room. Make sure you turn off the right ones there or a cold shower will greet you the next morning.
The staff were very friendly with free internet at a desk beside reception. The restaurant is located in the basement area beside the gym and pool with a good selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurts and cooked options for breakfast. I had a late flight out of Singapore and was able to leave my bags after check out and have a shower in the gym changing rooms before heading out to the airport which is always great.
The location is exceptional with the City Hall MRT station just two minutes away beside Raffles City shopping centre from where you can easily get to anywhere on the island. Alternatively, the waterfront with the Merlion etc is a mere five to ten minutes away by foot.
All in all a great place to stay!
