Having stayed at this hotel six months ago, and genuinely enjoying that stay, I decided to give it another try last month. I was not disappointed at all; even more pleasantly surprised how consistent the friendly and level of service was.
The location is quite attractive if looking for something other than the “in the middle of everything” or “200+ identical rooms” class of hotel. New Majestic is in the outer (western) reaches of Chinatown, but near some interesting places to eat (Keong Saik Rd) or enjoy life (Duxton, Ann Siang Hill, Tajong Pagar). It is very convenient to the MRT (Outram Park – two lines). It is a short taxi to the City.
Room size is adequate, and I stayed both times on the pool side (interior). The hotel has larger rooms facing the front, but I’ve only seen them from a distance when housekeeping left doors open. The front desk staff seems to have a “you are our guest” attitude and helps to make your stay comfortable.
