We stayed at the Intercon for 5 days and found that the location was perfect if you are a tourist wanting a central location. We were able to walk to Raffles, Suntec (where you can get on the Hop On / Hop Off buses to just about anywhere in Singapore) Bugis street is right across the road and there is the Bugis shopping centre that you can access through the hotel lobby in air-conditioned comfort. There are loads of places to dine within minutes of the hotel that suit every budget.
The room was incredibly spacious with a large bathroom that included a bath which was great to soak in after walking around all day. The hotel lobby and dining area is beautiful.
The service was very friendly and the concierge was helpful providing directions to the sights we wanted to see. We never had to wait more than a couple of minutes for a taxi & many places we visited were within easy walking distance.
The hotel rooms are probably due for a re-furb soon but the beds were very comfortable and rooms were spacious. The hotel was excellent value for money.
Overall I would recommend this hotel, we will definitely stay here again.
