I must agree with welovetotravel01's review. Booked through SIA program and was disappointed to find a smelly room (I regretted that I didn't specifically asked for a non smoking room), worn carpet and noisy cleaning staffs in the morning. The bathroom is OK but no slippers available. The location is OK in a quiet area but near a mall and an MRT. The staffs are helpful but they couldn't help us finding a non smoking room (only 1 non smoking floor ). I would not return to this hotel.

We were booked into The Hotel Royal by Singapore Airlines( the best airline in the world?) We were not expecting the Ritz, but we weren't expecting a prostitute in the lobby either. The rooms smelled and the ameneties were less than standard. I don't know who was more disappointed us, or the prostitute that didn't get a "john". Staff were friendly and helpful. Please see the photos or our "deluxe room". The sheets were unfitted, stained and had holes in them. Water pressure was poor, no facecloths, and when asked they didn't have any. If you do stay there, bring your own bedding and facecloths. The location is good; close to the MRT and a shopping mall. The hotel offered 50% off meals in their restaurants; even then the prices were still higher than anywhere else. We just thought we put this out there, as we wouldn't have stayed if the reviews were accurate.
Have a look at the photos; if it is OK to you, book in, if it looks as bad as it did to us, look elsewhere. Bring Slippers, you don't want bare anything touching this room.

Seeing the poor reviews I feel an update is required.
We booked a twin room through Singapore Airlines for US$244 for 3 nights, incld. b'fast and airport transfers.
Room: standard with all the expected amenities. Bathroom: clean and normal size. Water pressure good.
B'fast very good, great variety: Western, Malay, Indian, Chinese and even a small selection of Yam Cha ( Dim Sum).
Staff friendly enough (for S'pore). Tour desk guy terrific!
Transport A1!! Bus at door step. 2 bus stops to Newton MRT. Very useful at night when all taxis seem to be "on hire".
Internet cafe 2 mins. walk away.
Newton Circus hawker stalls 10 mins. walk or 2 bus stops.
Never tried the pool, too busy.
All in all a pleasant surprise to us after reading the lousy reviews.
I'd recommed this hotel to anyone who does not crave 5 * digs.

I would say that this is a typical budget tourist hotel where you one gets an adequate room with just adequate service. The turnover of tour groups that comes through this hotel must be quite large as it seemed to me that the hotel lobby was always filled with tour groups and their luggage either coming or going. In the evenings, the small lobby's ambience was not helped at all by its Karaoke Bar which had photos of female hostesses posted at the Bar's entrance. The hotel restaurant was again, just adequate in terms of space, service and overall food quality. The one thing going for the hotel is that it is located just a few minutes from a subway stop so that it was easy to get around if the hotel itself is not centrally located. There are also small shopping areas within walking distance. The hotel happened to have been booked for us and was thus not our choice. While we did not have a bad stay, I am quite certain we would choose a different hotel the next time we go to Singapore. However, for budget travelers who just want something adequate, the hotel would do just fine.

Generally an inexpensive 3 star hotel which is reasonably well located.

You need to walk for about 8 min to the Novena MRT station which can get you to town easily.

Good Points:
Cheap
Rooms are good sized for the price you are paying
They even provide combs, toothbrush and toothpaste. Not bad for a hotel like this
Quite clean
The have a pool
Service is satisfactory

Bad points:
Shopping centre not at your doorstep.
The elevators are hopeless and requires better maintenance
Overcrowded with group tourists
Breakfast is fairly basic and you have to fight with the crowds!
Obviously an old hotel but efforts has been made to make it look new


OVERALL:
Don't expect 5 star facilities and service. You are only paying 2.5 star price for a 3 star hotel. So, I am reasonably satisfied

Checked in and found the room dirty and the bathroom even worse. The tub had hair still in it from the previous guest. Thought maybe after we stayed one night and the room was cleaned the next day it would be up to standards. It wasn't. Only stayed two nights then had to leave. Will not stay there again or recommend it to anyone. Very poor house keeping.
