“Lovely unique looking hotel with cool, cool pool and great green credentials”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Gorgeous refreshing drink on arrival and the staff very attentive during check in. This hotel has great green credentials and the hanging gardens are truly wonderful giving the hotel a really unique look and feel. The rooms are modern and well stocked with everything a traveler could need for an overnight stay. The view from our room was not very glamorous but head to the cool infinity pool, with gardens and hanging people sized bird cages for the great Singaporean skyline. The pool is in the shade so it is a little nippy in the mornings but with the heat of Singapore all year this is no bad thing and well worth a dip.

The hotel is right on the edge of Chinatown with all its amazing various places of worship. If the menu at the hotel is a little pricey for you try the great local chinese cuisine at maxwells market a short ten minute walk from the hotel in the centre of Chinatown. Also a must see sight is the marina a 10 minute taxi ride taway.

We were only on an overnight stopover but the RoyalPark on Pickering gave are a wonderful great start to our holiday.

We stayed here on our way out to visit family in Australia and loved it. Great location, lovely views, lots of green and friendly staff, always helpful and smiling. Garden walk was good didn't go in the pool but views were stunning. Breakfast was very good, didn't have any other meals but all facilities were brilliant. We will be back soon.

Stayed in a premier room and had great views from both the bedroom and shower! Hotel is modern and comfortable with friendly staff. Conveniently located (5 - 10min walk) between Chinatown, Clarke Quay and (25min walk) to the marina Bay sands skypark. Good range of options for breakfast.

Excellent!!
can not complain about anything with this hotel.
very clean
very new
friendly staff
beautiful building inside & out, great pool, great location we caught the MRT underground train to most places which was great...but also found out that taxi's are pretty cheap also so we used both for transport.
food is amazing buffet breakfast had a great selection from eggs, pancakes, waffles to fruit & asian selections also. heaps of fresh fruit juices, coffees, teas THE BEST chocolate chip muffins ive ever tasted in my life!!!! I want the receipe!!
my husband & I did NOT get sick at all it was very clean. we used DEET spray for insects but only saw them at night.. mainly along the river.
nice shops close to the hotel also which are walking distance
the gardens everywhere around singapore are beautiful & especially the plants that over hang on the building.
we had a great experience & will return!!
(we later stayed at Shangri la Sentosa & ParkRoyal was better probably also being freshly built helps) so if your choosing between the two definatly choose ParkRoyal on Pickering!!!
touch sensitive light switches which you can control how dim you want the lights
double blinds
aircon worked great
nice city view of the skyline
will return !! even if its to grab a muffin!

Room Tip: we had a pool side veiw which you could mainly see building gardens as we were quite high.

You have never stayed anywhere quite like this. It is easily one of the best hotels in Singapore. It features truly unique design that makes you feel like you are living in the future. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and beautiful. The location is about as central as you can get for business in Singapore & the staff are eager to please.

Room Tip: Any room here is going to be great.

Chose this hotel because of its location and it adapted an environmental friendly concept. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. The room was bright & comfortable with natural lighting and user friendly with plenty of plugs around to cater gadget travellers. The breakie was good with a wide selection and the pool area was excellent, love those bird cages to relax in!

I actually arrived in the hotel early and a staff named Haviz (think that's how you spell it!) was extremely helpful in catering my bright room needs! My only suggestion is the waste bin size to be bigger and the mirror area in the toilets to be slightly brighter.

Would definitely pay this hotel a re-visit when I am in the city in the future & would recommend this hotel to all!

Room Tip: Corner rooms on higher floors facing Clarke Quay or Marina Bay would have better view with bright na...
