I am just finishing up a three months the Ascott, which has been my home since I moved to Singapore. I have to say that I will be sad to have to leave this home away home.
Arrival and check-in was swift with a porter waiting to take my baggage from their car (slight disappointment in the car model) that picked me up at the airport, though, it was still nice to have this included.
I am staying in a one bedroom apartment which, of which the bedroom is big enough for a king size bed and large writing desk. There is also a massive walk-in closet with his and her sides of the closet and vanity area with a mirror, if you need to put make-up on or something. Off the walk-in closet there is a large bathroom with probably one of the biggest shower/soaking tub combos I have seen.
The living/dining area is a decent size with a kitchen as well. My only disappointment with the kitchen was the lack of an oven, which I would think they would have as there are many western guests staying here. I say this having lived in Asia for a number of years and understand that ovens are not common in apartments.
There is also a second half bath just by the entrance, which is nice if you have guest overs.
Room service was daily and I would say was hit or miss. Not to see that housekeeping was bad at all but you could definitely tell the housekeepers who went the extra mile. For example, I tend to be a tidy person but sometimes would leave my laundry on a sofa to fold after work and sometimes the housekeeper would have folded it all during the day but others wouldn't. I would not usually expect this but it just an example of consistency.
Everyone of the staff in the Ascott was superb and professional and I have absolutely zero complaints about the service. Anytime you asked for something they always attended to your request.
On the 19th floor there was a very cool pool. The far side of the pool is glass and overlooks Raffles Place. There is also a gym and indoor/outdoor seating area on 19th floor, which had a TV and served coffee.
I did not use the bar or restaurant but the bar in the lobby was simple and always staffed in the evenings.
If you are staying for an extended stay in Singapore, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
