This is a lovely boutique hotel - a little out of the way but they do offer a free shuttle service to all the main tourist areas and the Singapore taxi's are very cheap. The service and warmth of the staff however is unbeatable. We arrived very early for check in, tired from an early long haul flight, only expecting to leave our luggage for the day but as our room was free they happily offered to let us check in early, free of charge and we had a very unexpected but most welcome shower and rest. The staff could not do enough for us throughout our stay and were most accommodating. The breakfast was included, it was really substantial, offered a huge variety of Asian style and continental breakfasts and you could also order freshly cooked eggs. This filling breakfast was really economical when travelling with a growing, never full teenage boy as meals are generally very expensive in Singapore.
When booking we pondered over whether to stay at one of the larger hotels and very nearly booked Marina Bay Sands but when I read the TA reviews saying that you couldn't leave your luggage for a late check out and that it was very busy and impersonal I changed my mind and chose here instead and I am very happy with my decision. We visited Marina Bay Sands and it was truly amazing but a visit was enough.
The area is near to China town (5 mins in a taxi) and the amazing food markets where you can fill your boots with amazing Asian food for a few dollars. We didn't visit them but the restaurants next to the hotel are supposed to be good too. Most shopping malls offer good reasonably priced meal choices in their food halls.
Singapore is beautiful, clean, safe and the people are very friendly, we had a great time, my only regret was not booking afternoon tea at Raffles it looked like an amazing treat.
Make sure that you visit the Gardens by the Bay and set aside at least half a day for this.
