Klapsons is more peculiar than boutique, the ridiculous pod you climb into to register on arrival certainly sets the tone for a different but less than remarkable experience.
in their desire to be different, clearly they are trying hard unfortunately in this instance 'trying hard' comes across as 'try hard' as the important things are missed in preference to emphasis on the odd and impractical.
In my room
the lighting particularly in the bathroom was inadequate and broken.
shower with a full window to the street was ridiculous given it lost its effect because you had to pull down the blind to stop people in the street watching you shower.
the wireless internet was as good as useless, best place for reasonable reception was to stand in front of the lifts.
the room was clean and the introduction of a coffee pod machine was a nice touch but then that is becoming industry standard now.
the toilet by the from door and the shower at the other end of the apartment requires some forward planning
plenty of hanging space for clothes if you ar a long term tenant.
bed was ok
the tables and chairs in the lobby were a missmatch of quirky pieces with no rhyme or reason to them, not comfortable to sit and do business and again internet was only good in one corner.
What little interaction i had with staff was stock standard Singapore helpfulness and friendliness
over all I would stay there again if I had to but would not make it my first choice, there are plenty of other hotels offering better planned and functioning facilities in Singapore
