“Good hotel and location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Stayed here from Mar 12th to 21st. Conveniently located above Outram MRT station. Rooms are of average size. Had a small issue with the AC cooling, got it solved promptly within a day. The management needs to put efforts to make the breakfast more interesting by including more fruits
and salads. For a vegetarian, has a limited options to choose from. 5 mins walking distance to Chinatown makes it more worthy to stay.
Lots of hawker centers nearby to choose from. All in all a good location and a good hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

This reviewer agrees with all the other positive reviews for the Dorsett Singapore. Location, hotel build quality and cleanliness, helpful staff, good facilities, etc. My room was a standard Dorsett Room on the 10th floor. This had the infamous bathroom suite with swinging door. Note that the integrated sliding bathroom door has a pop-out catch above the lock for extracting the door from the wall recess. Bottles of water in the room (tea/coffee making) are replaced daily. I stayed for 4 nights for local business and found the direct access from Changi to Outram Park MRT station next door to the hotel a selling point. Outram Park is the junction of the East West line & North East line with Chinatown and the HarbourFront (for Sentosa monorail) only 1 stop away. The hotel brochure states that they sell MRT Ez-link cards. Breakfast in the restaurant includes a good variety of food for different tastes & nationalities.
The staff were happy to extend my late checkout from midday to 6pm for a reasonable cost due to a late night flight. Metered taxi fare to/from Changi is about S$30 but some do not take Visa credit cards so some cash is handy.

Room Tip: A higher floor room can give a better view.

Stayed over at this place for a night. Check in was relatively quick. Staff was friendly. Was informed by check in staff that room is upgraded to a bigger room for free. The room is new and clean. However the bathroom was really really tiny! The room area itself is quite spacious. Very convenient as it is right next to an MRT station. Getting taxi in the morning is relatively easy. Will consider going back again!

This is the first time i've stayed anywhere other than MBS in Singapore, I was very apprehensive. But The Dorsett is great.
I am in my room right now writing this review. Its a fantastic location, next to the Outram Park MRT, makes it easy to navigate the city. It is on the same line that takes you to the airport, super convenient.
The room I have is a cute loft style room where the living space (small ish) with couch, TV (also upstairs over bed), desk to work from and bathroom is downstairs and the bed is upstairs. I really like it. I might even say I love it!
China Complex is a few minutes walk down the street, so local foods are easy to access.
Staff are really friendly. In Particular Michelle (one of the taller Singaporeans i've met) went out of her way to help me. I was so impressed that I booked The Dorsett in KL on the next leg of my trip, hopefully I get the same great experience there.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in SG, It is not MBS but it is a fraction of the price and offers a different aspect of Singapore.
Thoroughly impressed!

Management: If you are reading this, please give Michelle a pay rise, i would stay here again because of the service she provided me alone.

Stayed at the Dorsett for 4 nights in July , good location, next door to the Outram ParkMRT station and buses at the front door.ten minute walk to china town, though loads of restaurants and bars close by serving all varieties of food. I stayed in a standard twin room with a business colleague, which was indeed STANDARD. Very small room, if staying again would upgrade to a deluxe or better, though nothing else was available when I booked. Overall staff were very good, polite and helpful. Ate in the restaurant, food was good as we're the cocktails. Staff friendly and efficient, waitress was from the Ukraine and was very knowledgable .
Go to china town seafood restaurant which is 50 metres from the Chinatown MTR station Pagoda st exit great chilli and black pepper crab and very cold tiger beer.
Would stay again at the Dorsett for the location and staff.

A swish hotel that is convenient to the mrt, bus routes and Chinatown (a couple of blocks walk) but not in amongs the noise and craziness of it all. The foyer has a bit of Singaporean upmarket tackiness in the bling but otherwise the hotel is clean and elegantly styled. The pool is great and rarely busy. The standard rooms are pretty small (read: tiny) but I do like the integrated bathroom - fun and embarrassing at the same time. It is a very comfortable hotel (not to mention the beds) and the hotel staff are extremely friendly and go out of their way to help.
