Singapore, Singapore
Reviewed yesterday NEW

Experience while checking in was smooth, and fast. Courteous staff from doormen, to reception. Room was clean, and comfortable. City view would be interesting for first time travelers, or those walking down memory lane. Location of hotel was also good, as it was near eateries, spa and some places to chill out with friends with good music.

We spent 3 nights at this hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was fabulous - the best we'd had in 3 2/1 months travelling in South East Asia. The location of the hotel was good. We could walk around easily and were close to restaurants. The pictures of the pool on the website are great but it is...

Excellent location and service cannot be faulted. Good sea views from upper floors but although rooms are clean and the rooms are a bit small.

Good location and enjoyed our...

The hotel location are very near to the old harbour jetty, The hotel surrounded with many local foods stalls, and the most famous SOUP KAMBING (Lamb Soup) just 100 meters away from the hotel by walking distance. Many convenient stores around the hotel, and not difficult for clubbing and night life.

Great location, wonderful service throughout, good sea views or views of city from upper floors. Reasonably priced restaurants, but with so much "street food" and so many diverse restaurants available within a few hundred metres we did not try their restaurants.
