“Fabulous Hotel at a good price. Great Location, near Orchard Rd!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2009

Amazing - really great hotel.

Staff are really friendly, professional and warm. We arrived and were greeted by a luxurious candle-filled lobby with spiral stair cases on either side, and marbled floors. Just gorgeous.

The room was spacious, clean and modern. The mini bar is FREE and the hotel is 100% smoke-free. There is a safe in the room. The shower is so awesome as you can either have the normal shower head or the big rainforest-style one which we opted for. The bed is incredibly comfortable, for those who like a softer mattress.

The restaurant is pricey so we never went (approx. SD $35-40 per meal) so for breakfast we headed to Starbucks (approx. SD $ 16 for 2 coffees and 2 croissants), just right of the hotel - or you could go to TCC's which is slightly further down and they offer amazing and creative coffees there as well.

The hotel has a nice swimming pool and nearby gym.

Location - could not have done better. The hotel is literally on the corner of Orchard Rd (Shopping!) and opposed ION, which is the brand new shopping mall which has all designer brands.

Overall, amazing stay - would DEFINITELY stay in this hotel if I ever go back to Singapore; no hesitation.

First time in Singapore and I couldn't have had better.

Great location easily accessible and the second busiest road in Singapore; Scotts Rd has a wide variety shops, restuarants and eateries! The staff are wonderfully helpful; umbrellas at the ready, taxis awaiting at all times, destination advice for the most obscure things.

The hotel houses a wonderful bar, which has live music regularly (AWESOME) the ambience, drinks on offer and service was on point. Breakfast is served in the restaurant, buffet style a huge variety on offer and for dinner it was equally pleasant. Poolside has a some food service so it is possible to have breakfast by the pool. The gym, a tad small was fully functional cardio and weights available.

Stayed in the hotel on two occassions in the space of 10 days so had two different rooms; opt for a room high up and away from the elevator seemed to serve me best. I did have to change rooms cos it was dusty and appeared unkept. In any case, they were very accomodating of my request as I guess they should have been. Rooms are spacious with different layouts some with bath and showers others with just a shower. Had a look at some of my colleagues rooms so it seemed a bit hit and miss. Oh and not so much of a view out of the windows!

Loved the FREE wireless and minbar... the minibar is limited but has essentials water, juice, nuts to keep you going when peckish. Cant complain.. it is free afterall.
Not so great was the staff's inflexibility to grant a late checkout without the fee by the hour considering my company as a whole had spent a sum at the hotel and do all the time; its our chosen hotel in Singapore.

this hotel has a non smoking policy. All guests are required to sign a paper confirming they understand the rule. the hotel is very well located just 50 metres fro Orchard Road and all the huge shopping centres are close by.the hotel was being renovated at the time but this didn't affect us in any way. all work was completed by 6pm. as compensation we were upgraded to a delux room but on opening the door this was a little dissapointing. the rooms are quite small and no view whatsoever. However the rest of the hotel is fine with free internet available. the staff like all of Asia are extremely helpful.

Its a true value for money 5 star hotel. Rooms are of a good size, Beds are very comfortable, Breakfast is superb, Location is perfect - around the corner from the center of orchard road but the hotel is still very quiet. Try the lunch buffet if you have the chance - its excellent.

We have just recently stayed here for four nights and could not fault anything about the hotel. The room was a decent size, beautiful modern bathroom. They are renovating rooms in the hotel, but only from about 9am -4pm, so that didn't bother us. We were on a deal which included full buffet breakfast which was excellent, good choices and plenty of it. The hotel staff were friendly and generally enjoyed assisting. We booked various tours from the Concierge desk and they were helpful and well informed, advised us what buses to take, MRT info etc. The Chief Concierge Mohamed Ibrahim was exceptional and made our stay easy and hassle-free!
This hotel is ideally situated almost on the corner of Scotts and Orchard, with the MRT station only a few steps away, as well as buses that go wherever you need. Taxis are also in plentiful supply around here. I have stayed in a few different hotels in Singapore over the last couple of years, and this is definitely the best, I would re-book here without hesitation.

I stayed two nights at the Royal Plaza on Scotts in May 2007. The hotel is in a very good location. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but I would not say luxurious. The public areas of the hotel are nice, but not opulent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool small but nice. I would recommend and stay again. Overall, a 4 star hotel with a reasonable price in a city with very expensive hotels.

This hotel was initially booked through Expedia due to the special rate. The 2 things that stand out for me are that the hotel is the first total non-smoking hotel in Singapore, plus the provision of free wireless 802.11n internet, which others charge for. After an easy 20 minute taxi ride from Changi Airport in the late evening, check out was efficient, and we settled into the comfortable, clean spacious room. Some noise was encountered during the day because of suite refurbishment, but we were forewarned of it. The staff attended to our every need, including shortages of equipment in room,and cutlery for cuttting food. Free minibar helped to sustain us.
The only migiving I would have area paucity of dining options, with one restaurant, Carousel, the UltraHeat Lounge (more like a pub),and one Chinatown Heritage Restaurant.
Took good advantage of the fee internet.
In summary, recommend the Royal Plaza, even to thse staying in the major competitors across the road, and pocketed a saving of $100 a day, which goes a long way in food and shopping.
