“Large rooms”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

Room was nice and spacious - moreso than other places I've stayed in tips price range.

I found the "western" parts of the breakfast buffet (I.e. eggs and toast) to be only average, but my partner loved the more "non-western" foods. Food prices at the hotel were on the high side, if you like more asian style food then the 24 hour food court across the road is dirt cheap and tastes great! Another good cheap food option is the bugis+ mall just down the road. In the basement is a food court with three ultra cheap and ultra tasty "bread top" type stores.

Service was okay. We found the expressionless concierge staff member a bit hard to understand but this was more of a language issue than a lack of service.

One difficulty we had is that not many taxi drivers seemed to know where this hotel was - make sure you remember its address, not just its name! We heard that it had changed names a few times recently which might explain the confusion.

We stayed at Grand Pacific whilst in Singapore for the Grand Prix in September 2012.
We were upgraded without extra cost, the food and room service were superb, staff friendly and helpful.
The hotel is ideally situated for shopping and it was only 5 minutes walk to the entrance to the Grand Prix Circuit.
It's on good bus routes and the metro is located in the Bugis Street Shopping centre just down the road.5 mins on bus to Clarke Quay for $1.20 sing. Peanuts.
Great place for 5 night stay

We had previously been in London and Paris and were on our way home. We have stayed in Singapore many times but chose the Grand Pacific for a change. Compared to the hotel rooms in London and Paris these rooms were large. We arrived at 7.30am and were given our room straight away which was fantastic after a 12 hour flight. The rooms were quite and airconditioned and the hotel also has a laundry that you can use (for a fee) which is refreshing instead of paying hotel laundry prices.The hotel is in a great location and across the road was a fantastic 24hour local food centre which was fantatsivc value for money S$$.50 for sa dish as we normally go the Newton Circus which is exspensive compared to this place. Walking distance to MRT, Raffles City and Bugis Junction so was perfect. Great Hotel and enjoyed our stay there. Breakfast average and not that fresh to be honest as we ate late each morning and the food had been sitting there for a while but they really put pressure on you to finish by 10am as they start setting up for lunch.

Room Tip: Our room was on the 5th floor facing the road but there is double glazing and no road noise so we we...

We stayed here in October 2011 with our 3 year old son. It was great. the room was comfy although older style furniture it was great. Fantastic location and central to bugis st shopping as well as a host of other shopping centers. easy 2 minuet walk to the trains. and bus stops out the front. Taxis are cheap and usually they are waiting out the front so you dont have to wait long. The staff were lovely and the pool area a hit with our son. Would definetly stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights prior to a cruise. The room was very comfortable and the bathroom was excellent. The staff were both courteous and friendly, and more to the point verey helpful. We ate in the restaurant, two breakfastsa (excellent) and two dinners (very good and excellent value) The hotel was situated close to Raffles and only a short bus ride from the bay and Chinatown. WEould we stay herfe again? most certainly yes.

Room Tip: Be polite and ask for quiet.

the hotel is nicely located near Raffles City.
The rooms are ok, if you get a premier room even better. At least there they provide two bottles of free water.....
Bathroom needs some improvements.
If the english of the front staff would be better too it could be a big surplus.
But overall a nice stay and will come back again.

My daughter (11 yrs) and I have stayed in Singapore 3 or 4 times before. We stay in a different hotel each time to experience the different neighbourhoods and atmosphere each visit. This year, we chose to stay at the Grand Pacific, as the very reasonable room rates, and full buffet breakfast included (at the time of our stay) were big drawcards. I must say, neither of us was disappointed! The room was clean and spacious. The swimmng pool was more than big enough for a good splash before dinner each evening. Facilities such as the washer and dryer also made the trip easier (there's nothing like having mountains of laundry to do on returning home to dispel that holiday mood!) The staff were polite, friendly and efficient-nothing was too much trouble for anyone we met. We certainly felt like part of the family after we stayed there for 10 days. The late check out was also most welcome, and was the perfect end to our trip. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone travelling to Singapore-it's location is fantastic too. Within walking distance to Raffles, Raffles mall Bugis St markets & Bugis malls, CHIJMES, Clarke Quay and Marina Bay ( Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, Art Science museum, Singapore Flyer etc) Jurong Bird Park, Botanic Gardens, Wild Wild Wet water park and other attractions are also easily accessible by bus, MRT or (plentiful) taxis. Great hotel-great location-great value!

Room Tip: We stayed in a Deluxe room on the 6th floor. The pool is located on the 5th floor, so maybe will ask...
