“Great Location, Incredible Breakfast Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2009

It is hard to beat the location of the Singapore Hilton Hotel, on the quieter side of Orchard Road a block away from the frenetic Orchard and Scott intersection. For an older hotel, the public areas look modern and new. The rooms while nice, a little less up-to-date, although we had no complaints. The rooms were very clean, well lit and spacious. The beds were "don't-want-to-get-up" comfortable. But you do want to get up because of the incredible breakfast buffet awaiting you in their main dining room. Go for the breakfast included rate, it's worth it. This buffet has western, Indonesian, Japanese. Chinese dim sum (varieties changed daily) Indian and fresh fruits available. The best part were their croissants that were Paris-perfect! There is a nice rooftop pool with excellent views of the city, and for those inclined, a superlative exercise center.

I stayed for 5 days with my wife during our 2nd wedding anniversary at the hilton, signapore...

AMAZING!! AWESOME!! there are no adjectives less to describe the Hilton at Singapore!! The rooms are fantasic - the hotel was bang in the center of orchard road - minutes away from the MRT. the front desk was one of the best iv seen and the breakfast spread was the biggest!! I had booked this hotel from their site using a special discount which was to charge my card in advance. Due to some problem with authorization, my card was not charged - but the hotel still managed to book my reservation using the special rate - and billed me only 800SGD for my 5 day stay - including breakfast!! I thus had the privilege of having booked a month in advance, not paying for it - but still enjoyed the rate though I paid only on checkout.

Shaw, nge ann city, the newly built ion orchard are just a whisper away. there is 7/11, a citibank atm, mcdonalds, starbucks - everything is less than 100mts away.

you also get to see some wild lamborgini's and ferrari's at the hotel's car park.

in all - a wonderful wonderful stay!! will definitely stay here again.

I had stayed here before 16 years ago and loved it then. It is in a most fantastic position on orchard road and very close to all the shops and most importantly the metro... which is easy to get around on. It is also the right end if you want to visit the zoo (which cost 15-20SGD about £7-£10 each way in taxi)
We had the executive rooms which were lovely and the use of the executive lounge for check in and out and also for breakfast and evening drinks. It was a perfect to start the day with a good breakfast then end it relaxing with drinks and canapes in the lounge. The staff were fantastic especially in the executive lounge .. Pedro was a star and worked so hard and really looked after us.. Thank you Pedro.

We had the pleasure of spending the weekend just gone at the fabulous Singapore Hilton. We arrived at 7am Saturday morning and were allowed to check into our room straight away which was terrific and very unexpected. Being a Hhonours member I was also offered a 4pm checkout on Monday which was terrific as our flight was departing at 6pm.

The breakfast both in the executive lounge and the restaurant were fantastic, lots of choice and everything was on exceptional quality. The evening drinks service in the lounge was also a highlight, with a wide range of canapes and alcohol and also friendly personal service. Two hostesses, Beatrice and Kay, really made our stay special and were so friendly and welcoming.

The pool area is a little small and paying $26 for a club sandwich is a little too much but this is standard in hotels, I was certainly not expecting Singapore to be an exception.

Overall this was an excellent experience and I look forward to staying at the Singapore Hilton next time I visit.

OK, it is the Hilton. The rooms are nicely designed and the breakfast buffet is well stocked. The location on Orchard means you can walk to some truly great malls and the subway station is only minutes away. Two things will make me stay somewhere else the next time I am in Singapore:

1. The porters were very pushy, almost aggressive. They questioned our ability to carry our own bags and literally tried to grab them while we were carrying them. As this was our first impression of the hotel it was a bad start.

2. After the first night I noticed I my feed had been bitten by some insect. Since we stayed at a far less luxurious hotel in Indonesia the night before I was at first not sure I got these bites during the night at the Hilton. When I woke up after the second night I had even more bites which led me to the conclusion some angry critter lived in/under the bed.

Everything from arrival to departure was excellent. When we arrived we were taken quickly to the executive lounge for check-in and were soon in our room. I loved the room, it felt bright, clean and contemporary. It was well maintained and had all the facilities of a good standard hotel. I asked for a quite room, so was given a room at the back of the hotel. It was definitely quiet and the beds were extremely comfortable. The executive lounge in the evening was very good, although busy with a nice atmosphere. The snacks, canapes and drink offered were very good. For breakfast we ate in the main hotel restaurant instead of the executive lounge, the buffet selection was excellent, food from every corner of the world. The staff at breakfast were very efficient and the atmosphere was relaxed. The room service menu was extensive and the quality of food excellent. The location of the hotel is very good, right on Orchard Road and near to all the major shops. The new ION Shopping centre close by, has a good selection of shops and a great food court in the basement. Overall, I am looking forward to staying here again, my only small suggestion is to have free WIFI for guests in the hotel. A great hotel, in a great location!

Absolutely loved it. Great location and great spot to explore everything. The breakfast was more than enough, and one of the best so far. the rooms very spaciouse with large bathrooms. Spent quite a bit of time watching the view from the room and got to see quite a bit of the city. We also took one of the tours to Sentosa isalnd that we would recommend.
