We stayed here for 2 nights, 24th and 25th October 2013, there are no free transfers from the airport to the hotel and the taxi fare was around $20 each way depending on the traffic. The room and breakfast were nice enough although we had a power cut in our room on the last day and were sweltering before we left for the airport. They gave us a voucher for a free drink in the bar on the 17th floor which we decided to have after a long hot day walking around Singapore (the hop on/off bus stop is a long way from the hotel) the half pint of guiness went down well so we decided to have another (big mistake) because when it came to settling the bill at the end of our stay the extra 2 halves of guiness cost us $40 (£20) which we reckon must be a world record!
I think this hotel is vastly overpriced as it is not exactly in the best position for getting around Singapore.
