“Comfortable and quiet hotel in a great location”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

We picked this hotel on the basis of review and location for our visit to Singapore to attend the F1 grand prix. The hotel is in an excellent location for this being just a 5 minute walk from gate 6 and about a 20 minute walk from gate 10. It is also about a 15 minute walk from Chinatown. The hotel is located in the business district which means it is very quiet at the weekends, the down side being everything nearby is closed at the weekends as well. Saying that you are only a 5 minute walk underground to the MRT station or 10 minutes from the Marina Bay mall and centre so it is not really a problem. Staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful, always greeting you with a smile. Their knowledge of the local area is not that great, twice we were sent much further away than was needed to find what we needed. The hotel is very well maintained to a high standard with huge beds, lovely walk in bathrooms with rain showers and bath. Breakfast was very nice and convenient and fairly well priced for a hotel and what was on offer which included a cooked breakfast (eggs or pancakes) and also fruit, muesli, baked goods and other buffet breakfast items all for $20 per head. There are a few restaurants and nearby at the waterfront which look out over Marina Bay to the Marina Bay Sands, a nice place for dinner or a drink. The hotel has an inifinity pool on the roof which was good fun and a real experience to be able to swim to the edge and look out over the city, there is also a jacuzzi and loungers on the top roof (which does not seem to get mentioned anywhere). There is also a small gym and relaxation area. One note of caution we stayed in the smaller studio room which was located right next to the lift shaft. although it did not really bother us you could hear the lift weights going up and down (although they did a good job of soundproofing the room) which may bother some people, the room also does not have a view at all with only small side windows which look out at the neighbouring building. Overall this was a great hotel, I would recommend it for business or couples looking for a quiet and comfortable hotel to attend the grand prix or to just explore everything Singapore has to offer.

Room Tip: Corner studio rooms are right next to the lift shaft so avoid if possible

We selected this hotel for our long weekend in Singapore via the formula1.com website - that is why we were I n Singapore for five days in September 2013.

The link went through to a company called WWE, a part of Expedia. We booked a flights and hotel package.

Take the Singapore metro from Changi airport, and with one easy change at Tannah Mera, alight at Raffles Place station. Fare very cheap - 2.20 Singapore dollars (that's £1.10 British pounds). Follow the signs to exit 'I', and turn left as you exit the station. Less then 50 metres, and you're there. As you climb the front steps, the doors open automatically. Reception was quiet, and we were checked in to room 310.

There are ten rooms on each floor, x01 to x10. The biggest rooms are the corner ones x06, followed by x10. These latter have a reasonable view too (compared to the others).

Rooms are very nice, modern, comfortable, with mini kitchens including dishwasher, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and microwave. The bathroom is slightly quirky, with glass panels where you might expect walls. A blind next to the combined shower/bathroom can be closed for those more modest about their bathroom antics. But don't let this put you off - quirky is the word.

Staff were very helpful throughout, with suggestions of what to do, where to go and where to eat.

The hotel is an easy walk to Marina Bay area (do go to the Marina Bay Sands hotel, and take the elevator in the left hand tower as you look at it from this side, to the Ku De Te bar on the 57th floor. It's free, and the views wonderful). It's is also an easy walk to/from the GP track. If we go to the GP again, we'd definitely stay here again.

As I have said, the metro (underground train) could not be closer, and the fares very modest. So strongly recommend using this to get around e.g. Orchard for shopping.

In summary, a great hotel in the perfect position. If my review has informed you, PLEASE give me a 'Helpful'.

Room Tip: Anything ending x06 or x10 is perfect.

The hotel is well located and right across my office, so the access to and fro was very convenient for me. The MRT is right outside the hotel, so all you have to do is hop out of the hotel and get down the subway to take the train. The single rooms are quite large and can easily accommodate 4 pax and they have lovely homely feel to them, so even away on work i feel at home.

Fantastic establishment.Lovely rooms, great central location, amazing amenites and lovely staff

I would recommend this place for all the above factors. Excellent location means great access to the rest of the city and especially if you are here for work means you are in a great location and if for leisure, it means you are travelling against the crowd!!

All in all - highly recommend it

Had stayed in Ascot Singapore for 90 days and it was a very pleasant experience. It is right at the heart of the city. Would urge to go with the room facing One raffles quay. The place i very near to the offices, clare quay, arab streer, fullerton hotel, explanade etc.
The rooms are very clean with highly professional staff to assist you at any point it time.
Highly Recommended!!

Great place. Rooms/apartments ar huge and beautifully furnished. Feels like being at home.

Well located in centre of town and near the business and financial district, and can walk across. Next time i am in Sgp will def come back to this place, and would like to stay longer

Only critism is breakfast is pretty average, but nice and intimate as not so many rooms like in many of the top class hotels with 200+ rooms.

Simply put a great place, great location and wants to make you come back

Have stayed here twice now and love the huge rooms. Great pool and gym. Central to financial district and waterfront ( Sands hotel and gardens) or Fullerton quay. Also short walk to boat Quay, trains, buses and more. City explorer bus stop close by.

Room Tip: All rooms so far so good.
