If you are looking for a fine hotel with a great location, look no further than the Intercontinental Hotel. The lobby is a little more traditional than the ultramodern marble and glass properties, but the rooms are very up-to-date and comfortable. The service is absolutely superb. Even my wife could find nothing to fault with the cleanliness. The breakfast is fantastic, but could get crowded, in which case they open up another room nearby with the same buffet. As for location, it has an entrance directly into a major shopping center. A short walk into the shopping center brings you to the “Bugis” station stop of the metro that conveniently transports you to most sections of the city. The walk to the Esplanade Theaters takes ten minutes. This hotel is what you’d expect of a five star hotel. Highly recommended.
