“Great Location for food, MRT, Bus and Malls.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

I first stayed here last March 2011. Since I'm petite and was used to having an average bedroom, I don't demand large and spacious room on hotel accommodation specially if I'm just staying for a few days. In short, in my opinion Park View Hotel povides a comfy room and just a right amount of space for asians. (but I think western people prefer a bigger room). They are also lenient on reservations, they allowed us to reserve the rooms without a deposit since our case was special, we were booking quite a sum of rooms, and the set up for the rest of our stay was complicated. Nevertheless they were accommodating and have adjusted to our every request. And for that thumbs up! Because some hotels are not really that accommodating on request specially changing rooms and payment options. The only con is, hotel is quite old and for the past 2 yrs I have booked and stayed there for 3x, they don't seem to have done any major upgrades nor renovations yet. But I hope they do soon. I love the idea of walking to places instead of riding a cab.

Location: Parkview hotel is just 30mins from the airport via mrt or 20mins by taxi, 3 mins away from MRT, a minute away from Bus stop, and a minute away from sumptuous great singaporean foods! I specially love the idea of being able to have access to both affordable and fine dining meals easily.

Food: The best thing about this hotel is how it is located to Bugis, I love the foods in here! Although breakfast is served in the hotel, lunch and dinner is not (which is a norm) but you can still get your choices of food from cheap street foods/hawkers or you can go to pricey restau instead. Well for easy, fast and ready to eat foods. There is a food stall below Park View just besides it. For as low as 3SGD, you get a delicious chicken rice, or specialty duck rice, there is a hawker 5mins away which is Albert Complex, they have less than 5sgd foods here and they taste great. Or you can grab your comfort foods nearby, they have neighboring starbucks, mcdonalds, subway within the area. At night, you can enjoy unlimited steamboat dinner (its where you cook ur own food, like throw veggies, meat in, fry them or boil them).

Malls: There are plenty of malls in a 5mins walk, moreso on a 20mins walk but I would like to focus on the 5mins only, you can go to the Bugis Junction, Bugis + and Suntec Mall. If you wish to eat on the comfort of a mall, they have a choices of food on the lowerground foodcourt in Bugis Junction or on the 3rd flr level foodcourt. As well as in Suntec's food republic and SkyGarden.

NightLife and Restau: Chijmes is within a 15mins walk, it's a good place to chill at night..

And since its far away from busy and noisy nightlife of Clarkey, you can rest quiet at night but still enjoy the perks of being within the city center, whether it be for business trip, vacation or both. I think you could consider this hotel, given it's affordable price. Not bad for it's location :)

Room Tip: When making reservations, make sure u get a room with window specially when its triple sharing, coz...

I stayed three nights at the Park View Hotel during a three-week trip to South East Asia. We decided to choose at relatively cheap hotel in Singapore. Compared to most other hotels in Singapore, the Park View was reasonably priced.

The best thing to say about the hotel is that is has a great location. It is within walking distance to most attractions, like the Marina Bay, Financial District, Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, Orchard Road, Chinatown and Little India. We did not need to use taxis or the metro during our visit (except from the airport and to the railway station).

We had a "superior room", and the superior feature is that is has a window. The room was tiny, and it did not have a view to any park. The mattress was terribly hard.

The breakfast was ok - but nothing more.

The only good thing about this hotel is its location for the price.

It is very old and outdated. Perhaps too old to function as a hotel. This is one of the worst hotels that I have had. The standard room is small. Since it doesn't have windows, it has a unpleasant smell. The hotel offers limited hot water: You need to keep a button on the wall on in order to have hot water! However, this button is not labelled on the wall. So if you turned it off by accident, you don't get hot water! Once you turn it on, you need to wait for 15 minutes for the water to become hot. It is really non-sense! This is the most backward hotel facility that I have had. The breakfast is ok, not great, but can fill up your belly. The air conditioner has problems. I was asked to move to a different room because the air-conditioner needed to be fixed. The bed is hard and bed sheets are not clean. The room cannot be made very clean because it is too old. Overall, it is not worth your money and time. I won't stay there again.

Room Tip: If you must choose this hotel, book a room with windows.

Staff is very rude. Rooms are terrible. Breakfast is Awefull. Simply the worst experience after travelling and staying in hotel from the past 7 years. A family owned hotel which does not care about business, forget the customers.

I stayed in this hotel for more than 5 times (5 years in a row since 2007). The first 3 years, it was a great stay because the quality of rooms, services and staffs were good. But after that, all that I mentioned were drop. The room is to old fashion, not so hygiene, very cold and ignorance staffs, also quite average service. One thing I love from this hotel is the location. You can walk to Suntec, Bugis Junction and MRT Station in 5-10 minutes. If you a food lover, there are a lot of choices of restaurant near the hotel. Even they open until midnight. So you don't have to worry about lack of food. This December I will stay there again. Let's see how things will be done.....

The most important thing - it is a very convenient location to the Subway (MRT) and the city center. The rooms are small, as mentioned earlier, repair is needed, but, at the same time, rooms are clean. Breakfast - nothing special. Next to the hotel a lot of cafes, fast food and so on.

This hotel is located in Bugis just a short stroll from Bugis mall/night market. Its only 10 minute walk to Raffles hotel and mall. Overall the hotel is clean and tidy. However the bathroom could do with renovating as it is a bit mouldy, probably because the extractor doesn't work .The water pressure in the shower is excellent.
Comfortable clean beds , and helpfull staff on reception.The rooms are a bit small but we only had one suitcase so it was ok. More baggage and it might get a bit cramped.
There are good hotpot restuarants around the area aswell.
I would stay here again if I came to Singapore.
