“Good Alternative in Singapore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

For the money, the Riverfront is a very good option in Singapore even if a touch out of the way. The rooms are good sized and comfortable, The restaurant food is very good, and at a reasonable price given Singapore has become expensive. The charge for internet connection is a bit rich in what is supposedly a hitech city. That aside, a good place to save a little money to be spent on shopping later!

Stayed here for one night. Good service, amazing rooms, best buffet for lunch and dinner! Right near Clarke Quay and night life. Swimming pool. No free wifi. Shopping mall close by. You can get everything you need within 10 min walk.

We needed a hotel for one night in Singapore before our connecting flight and were pleasantly surprised to get a free upgrade. The views over the city were spectacular. Massive comfy beds. Shower and wet room great. Just what you need after a long flight. Good location for Clarke Quay. Staff very helpful. No free wifi. Very easy to get taxi. Luxury hotel. Would stay again for longer if budget allowed.

One of the best hotels in the country, close to china town, excellent food resturants, jym, swimming pool, etc.. Excellent, super friendly & helpful staff.
Some rooms are very compact, better to check room prior, other then that, the hotel is fully loaded.

the hotel itself was ok. lovely looking, really easy to get a taxi out the front. I went with my family so all up there were 8 of us. we went just after christmas, so it was really busy. The people out the front were so helpful and friendly. the rooms were really spacious, clean, and nice.

it was called the riverfront hotel, and we certainly got a view of the river: it as about half a meter wide, and green, it wasn't that great.

Breakfast was really expensive. it was the first hotel I have been to where we didn't get breakfast included because of the cost. we did go there one day, and the food was amazing.

Checking in was a nightmare. it took us 45 minutes to even make it to the counter, and after a midnight plane flight, the last thing you want it to be waiting that long to check in.

The pool wasn't that great. it was quite small and no shade

overall the hotel was Ok, but the atmosphere almost felt quite off. I am used to staying at quite laid back hotels and this definitely wasn't laid back, which is great if you like that sort of thing, but it really wasn't my thing

The Furama was better than I had imagined. Lots of color and style on the ground floor. The room however was a surprise. Brown. No picture. No flowers. No style. Big TV. Comfy bed. I had hot water and a tub. Loved the shutters on the windows, made it really dark in the mornings.Pool was beautiful, but it rain the whole we were there so we did not use it. The lighting is poor, you have to put your makeup on by the window, just to see what you are doing. There was an adapter in the bath room so any curling iron will work, that was nice.
I checked on prices to see if I could get a foot massage in the spa, I could, prices were less than I thought they would be. One half hour was $25. I would give it a 7 on a scale of 1-10.
You do have to pay for internet, I think that is a poor policy these days, when it is free in the mall and at McDonald's. Really , that was an expensive hassle.
Breakfast buffet. I printed off the coupon from trip adviser and it took two days and harassment from me before they said OK. I was so excited, the buffet is around $30. and then so disappointed. If I had paid I would have been mad that I paid so much. Nothing special at the buffet, not bad , but not wonderful.
I was glad that I read the review about the 51 bus, he was right, at the hotel you don't get any info on what might help you get around. We learned how to do the bus and train and it was easy. But someone besides the lady selling the million dollar tours should be helping guests. On our last day we figured out how to use the water taxi to get down to Clark Quay.$3.00 a person and very relaxing. When you come out of the hotel, turn right and walk around the curve. you will see a walk way going over the street, take that and go through the Riverside Hotel. The hotel is a ways from everything.
When we checked out we had all day before our flight and they stored our luggage for us free of charge. Everyone that worked at the Furama seemed very nice and they were friendly to us.

Room Tip: Room 927 was a great room. It was at the end of the hall, so we heard a little noise but not too bad...
