“Overall a good experience, could have been better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

I had stayed at Amara Hotel twice before and it was great. The property had undergone much reno and upgrading and it is even better now. Some slight annoyance encountered during my recent stay at their deluxe room which didn't make my stay that great.

First, the bathroom necessities were not complete - small square face/hand towels and glass mugs for brushing were missing. There was also no drinking glasses in the mini bar cabinet I rang the housekeeping and a service staff came promptly to send 2 drinking glasses of different sizes, and then a housekeeper came along with the 2 square towels and 1 hand towel and I asked for the glass mugs for brushing and she said they are "out of stock"!!

I thanked her and told her these are standard items expected of a 4 or 5 -star property.

I must say the breakfast was great with a good spread of food. Among other food, I found the roti prata with vegetable curry was great. The place was overcrowded with people on a Sunday morning.

The adjacent shopping mall with the shops and eateries are worth checking out.

Great hotel to stay.

Room Tip: City view is better in my opinion. Try to avoid room with afternoon sun if possible.

They know your name. They know your beverage. They greet you as VIP and treat each customer with utmost respect. Access to first class fitness facility. Laundry service. Makes the trip away from home more pleasant and appreciated. Convenient location adjacent to shopping and food. Easy access. Ballet studio close (Reality Center) with drop in classes.

We stayed at the Club Floor at Amara Hotel Singapore recently. The service at the Club Floor was very warm, hospitable and personal. The room was rather spacious. The breakfast and evening cocktails were also very good. There was a wide selection and the food was rather nice. Location was important to us as it was located in the CBD and within a few minutes walk to the MRT station. There were ample restaurants within the Hotel and the surrounding area. A mall sits conveniently next to the Hotel. The real draw is the excellent service on the Club Floor! We will certainly be going back.

I have stayed at the amara singapore in the club floor room. The room is very relaxing and personaly I love the bath tab in the room so that I could have a nice long relaxing time before I go bed. Moreover the club lunge offered breakfast and evening cocktail time with fantastic staff service. I really enjoyed their hospitality.

I recently stayed at the Amara Singapore in a Club Floor room and the experience was fantastic.The room was very spacious, the Club offered a great selection for breakfast & evening appetizers along with very personable service by the staff. The location of the hotel was another selling point with convenient walking distance to a variety of outside dining options and a mall next door.I would definitely recommend this hotel to other business travelers.

Room Tip: Club floor rooms are worth the extra price

I have been staying at this hotel since 2002 and i really enjoy the Hospitality and the personal service. i stay here bout 5to 10 times a year. It seems that many of the staff working at Amara you will find have been working there for many years- It is nice to arrive and be greeted personally by my name- i guess i am a regular. The staff seem to go out of there way to give you what you want. I like staying in the club lounge on the 17th floor. They have a great pool and Gym. Also handy that there is a supermarket next door and across the road- many eating places next door as well as the Amara Restaurants in the hotel. The MRT is just around the corner so handy to get to hotel. It is close to down town and does not have the overcrowded feel of Down Town. It is in the business district which i like and is convenient for me.

Room Tip: Club Rooms on 17th and 18th floor is good. I also like Level 6 which is close to the pool however ma...

Staying at the Amara is a very rewarding experience. The staff in all areas pay attention to your every need and go out of there way to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They become like an extended family, easy to talk to and share your experiences throughout the day. When I finally left to move into an apt. it was hard because I miss the interaction that I had with the staff at breakfast in the morning and at happy hour in the evening. They were all special people and look forward to seeing them again. I would recommend staying at the Amara to anyone wanting a good experience when visiting Singapore.

Room Tip: I enjoyed the staff on the higher rooms and there seems to be less noise.
