My husband and I stayed at the Majestic for a night with our 2-year old while on a weekend trip from Singapore. The hotel is beautiful - lovely colonial architecture for the main lobby but with a modern building right behind it for the rooms. I can't say much for the surrounding area though - being from Singapore, I was appalled at the amount of garbage and standing water in the drains. Having seen that and then seeing the numerous posters on Dengue in the area, I got a little nervous that I didn't bring the mosquito repellant with me.
A major negative point was the EXTREMELY thin walls in the hotel. Everytime someone upstairs flushed the toilet or took a shower, we could hear it. Our neighbor had an infant with them, and he was awoken by the sound of someone upstairs taking an extremely long shower. He cried for about 30 minutes, the entire duration of the shower. My daughter tossed and turned in bed because of the noise and couldn't fall asleep until both the shower and the baby became silent. When someone rang the doorbell next door, we thought it was ours.
During the day, even though we had put a DO NOT DISTURB sign outside, housekeeping vaccuumed the area right outside our door. This is a place where we can even hear the vaccuum a few rooms away. It felt like they were using the vacuum right next to us on the bed.
Although I enjoyed the Majestic's lovely rooms and the excellent staff, I don't think I would stay here again as the walls are too thin. If you have any children or sensitive sleepers in your group, don't stay at the Majestic.
