“Quiet, not-your-regular hotel”
Reviewed July 30, 2011

Klapsons is in the business area but because it has limited rooms, you'll find quiet and peace every time.

I've stayed in the hotel twice early this year and I found the service at par with some hotels I've been to. Their wifi is fast, which is important for business travelers like me. The breakfast though is not as much compared to bigger hotels, which is understandable given that they only have few guests at any given time.

The open shower concept often surprises people, but rooms and hallways are always clean. The nespresso machine and ipod dock are also fantastic.

Headed off to Klapsons for a sneak peek!

PROS:
its located right in the heart of Singapore's CBD.

Just 10 mins walk away from the nearest MRT (Tanjong Pagah) and surrounded by good food.

The staff provides a very personalised service, bringing you right to the doorstep of your room!

Awesome bar on the 17th floor, FABRIKA. :)

Lovely rooms with intrcate designs

CONS:
The hotel currently has only 17 rooms, a tad little if you wanna bring a business group over.

The showers are designed with an open concept, so if you're shy to reveal your body.. do take note.

Room Tip: Be friendly and nice to the staff

Stayed here for a night having won a contest, so had no expectations. Room was clean, cosy and comfortable but my only complaint is similar to the previous reviewer - the open concept shower area as I almost slipped a few times near the bed. Had dinner at the in-house restaurant, which had reasonably priced food (55 degrees veal was tender and nice, lobster risotto was undercooked and disappointing). Next morning, we got to breakfast 30 minutes to the end of buffet and found their selection limited to yoghurt and salad. Most of the foodstuff were finished and the staff did not intend to replenish. However, upon request, eggs and sausages were cooked to make up for the lackthereof. Spotted three hotel staff hussling together to read my feedback form after I walk out of the hotel, not sure if it reached the management. I will stay here again only if I have business in the area.

The hotel is good, apart from the fact that the shower is located within the sleeping room and it becomes quite wet immediately, so the wall covering is already wavy. The breakfast is mostly European and sufficient, the breakfast service staff was exceptional. They also offer WiFi for free, and the recommendations for restaurants, for shopping, for doing something in the sparse time were very helpful.

Go there if you like modern hotels, don't go there if you rather like the classical ones.

We stayed only for one night, which is a shame. Very, if not extremely friendly service. Very clean and convenient room. We had our own secluded terrasse which was definately a big bonus. Very nice indeed!

We booked a hotel for a meeting as this is nearer to the local office. However the meeting was cancelled off last minute and yet the hotel went ahead to deduct the night's cost without even informing my client. It was only later then they send an email to state they they took the liberty to deduct the money saying its hotel policy. And the problem is most hotels allowed cancellation within 48 hours and this particular hotel insisted on 72 hours! If you are looking for nearby hotels, go for friendly hotels like New Majestic and Wangz Hotel. At least they are not that inflexible in this area.

The hotel is small and intimate with only 17 room. The rooms are generous in size and well appointed. The room was super clean and the towels and bedsheets crisp. Like everywhere in Singapore the air-conditioning is set to near freezing but can easily be adjusted.
The appointments are modern and function well. The prices for this kind of hotel is good and I found the breakfast service adequate but not overly large in terms of selection. For a business trip it is quite sufficient. The staff were friendly and efficient. Although traffic is audible in the room I did not find it overly disturbing.
