“location & food is GOOD!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

there is a lot food shops around the hotel. Walking distance 5-10minutes. Food Court is infront the hotel - Tanjung Pagar Plaza. Japanese food on the right side hotel.
Nice dessert is beside the hotel . Can locate it via Lobby its a small mall located at level 2.

Easy to travel around by MRT. and location is good.

FREE internet service. Its fast.

Things to improve.
1.bathroom room (water temperature not consistent) and middle of night can hear water coming out few times that will interupt the sleep
2.breakfast - please have more variety.
3.TV channel might need add in 1-2 children channel.

My family (me, husband and 6 year old daughter) checked in on 15 Dec 2012 as a staycation and at the same time as a birthday treat for my husband. There was a faint smell of lemongrass at the lobby, very relaxing.

Check in was efficient. I requested for high floor rooms and I got it. The room is very spacious. The bed was super big. Good enough for 3 of us to sleep comfortably. They have a sizeable swimming pool. However no children's pool (guess because it was more of a business hotel).

Location was superb. It is connected to a shopping mall therefore very convenient. There's a supermarket (NTUC Finest) at the basement. Loads of eateries and fast food outlets at the mall. Most importantly, it was just a 7 mins walk to the Tanjong Pagar MRT. For those who drive, the hotel also provides complimentary carpark.

For tourist who would like to try out Singapore food, there's a food market just diagonally opposite. For nightlife, there are pubs located about 10 mins walk away.

I can only say everything was good and we really enjoyed the stay. Thank you Amara.

My family and I stayed at the Amara on our way home from Europe in August 2011. Previously we had stayed at the Fairmont but this time we decided to try somewhere different.

Upon arrival it seemed very out of the way and pretty much in the business district but we soon found out it was a hop, skip and a jump to Sentosa Island - a definite bonus for our kids.

There were a number of restaurants in the hotel but we were able to eat cheaply with the locals right across the road from the Amara for the cost of AU $2.50 for lunch or dinner. The Maxwell Road Hawker Centre was also nearby and we enjoyed a meal there too.

The hotel room itself was newly renovated and we slept very soundly for our two night stay. The pool was lovely but like many in Singapore was shaded by the building.

Dear Amara Singapore Hotel, I have had a very pleasant stay at your hotel on 8 Dec 2012 (Sat). Your interior was superb and more importantly, your Concierge Staff - Loges went above and beyond his call of duty to help me out to surprise my girlfriend on her birthday despite administrative restrictions.

Despite my abrupt request at the front counter to leave balloons in the room, when we have yet to check-in (surprise act). Logesw' was eager to support me and he made sure that my request was well-taken care off even though I was checking-in only after he went off-duty.

As a result of his caring initiative, I had been able to surprise my gf pleasantly as she opened the room door to find a room full of balloons.

If not for Logesw' this would not have been possible and I thank him from the bottom of my heart. I will not mind coming back to Amara Singapore Hotel again and I look forward to equally good experiences. Thank you

Pros:
location close to CBD

Cons:
- shower units have no privacy whatsoever, might as well use glass walls so that all of its guests can see each other shower
- walls are paper thin. You can hear the next room couple watching their korean soap opera at 3 am
- poorly maintained shower units (i.e. holes in walls, etc.)
- beds are literally made of stone. One thin mattress on top of a huge box - giving the illusion of a cosy Ritz Carlton type bed.
- staff inattentive, do not open the doors for their customers
- very pricey given the cons outweight the pros by a large amount.

Conclusion: Do not stay here. Go for Conrad

Great location. Nice staff. The only complaint was the excessive charge to use the tennis courts considering they were not in use. They wanted to charge $30SGD for court hire, racquets and tennis balls for one hour. As a guest I would think court hire would be free and happy to pay $15SGD for hire or racquets and balls. $30SGD was just pushing it.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room on the plus 10 leve as the view of neighbouring complexes is fascinating.
