We stayed at Summer View Hotel on the 4th floor. We booked 4 rooms (each with extra bed placed in) for 10 adults, 2 kids and 1 baby. We had a great stay with them. 2 rooms had a queen-sized bed and an extra single bed and the other 2 had 3 single beds- space would only be an issue if you have a lot of luggage. 2 of the rooms are adjoining. TV varied, depending on the room, I think they're in the process of replacing the old ones, but the english channels are limited (but who would stay in the hotel in SG to watch tv anyway?) Bathroom had bathtub with hot shower, railings to hold on to and anti-slip mats - for us it was just the right size and very clean. Only soap in dispenser, shower cap and face/body towels are provided. AC worked great - just be careful when setting the temp, you might find yourself chilled to the bone. They did provide water in the ref, but in a pitcher. Coffee/tea available, but coffee does not taste good. Our room faced the street, but you could only see the street below and building in front. Our rooms were cleaned daily.
All the staff we talked to were friendly and helpful. They gave directions to the big tourist attractions we went to: Merlion Park/Clarke Quay, Sg Zoo, Bugis Street/Mustafa Center. The hotel is one of the stops for the free shuttle to Universal Studios, which is a huge plus. We just walked to Bugis Street and taxi to Mustafa Center was about 3mins. Bus stop/taxi stop was across the street and in front of the hotel. Burlington Square, Bencoolen Place (?), Albert Mall, Sim Lim had food courts for cheap but good food; and restaurants/fast food also. Bugis Street had a lot of souvenir items for sale in bulk, better to buy souvenirs here. But for chocolates, go to Mustafa Center.
Free breakfast was buffet style with fried rice, beans, egg (scrambled, sunny side up, hard boiled), sausages, pancake/french toast (alternates daily), bacon/ham (alternates daily), bread, butter/marmalade/spread, cornflakes/koko krunch and milk, brewed coffee, tea, juice, water (had a sweet taste to it, maybe because of the dispenser), fresh fruits.
They have a small lobby and restaurant, so it can get crowded.
I will definitely book this hotel again.
Ask for adjoining rooms if you're travelling in a group.
