Reviewed October 16, 2013

I stayed at Studio M over the Hari Raya Haji break for one night and got a free upgrade to the Premium Loft which was not too bad. The difference between the Studio loft and premium loft is studio loft has the queen size bed on the first floor and the working table is on top, the premium loft has the study table on the first floor and the bed on the second floor with the tv. So if you want to watch tv, you got to go up to the second floor to watch.
The high ceiling gives the room a better feel of not being so crammed. The only thing which I found that I didn't like was the toilet was a little small and didn't have enough hooks on the door to hang my toiletries.
Room service was so so, they charge money for ice. But it was nice of them to have wine glasses for our use.
The breakfast was average, nothing fantastic, they do have one live egg station and offer a coffee machine.
All in all, the stay was pleasant, however, i was very unhappy with their official website where they had this 'Best Rate Guarantee' policy on their website. I clicked on the form twice and since 2 Oct, no one has gotten back to me on any feedback. I called them up and was asked to write an email and that was Monday, and I still haven't gotten any reply till now. I went to the front desk and the duty manager couldn't do anything too. Worse thing is for the weblink on the terms and conditions gave a 404 error message.
It's disappointing for such slow or no response for a reputable hotel chain. Hope they can give a response soon.

Me and my wife stayed here for a day in Sep 2013, during the Grand Prix weekend. We loved the hotel, and the room. The studio loft idea is fabolous and the view with windows from ceiling to the floor is jus great.

Breakfast was decent. Wudnt say great. Cud have been better. Metro station is slightly far, but the hotel provides coach drops to Dhobi Ghaat station every 30 mins or so. Very clean, nice beds.

Room Tip: Take the higher floors for a fab view of the Singapore skyline

After getting used to a very cramped room this hotel can be OK. The pool area is spacious and comfortable.

Don't rely on Ta'ke, the in-house restaurant. It offers breakfast only and it's pretty average for the price. A discount is offered at The Bookshop Cafe across the road - a much better proposition.

A major problem is the distance to the MRT. It will be best to get to understand the workings of the bus system or, alternatively us a water taxi to get to Clarke Quay Station.

I stayed here during a business trip due to hotels selling out just after F1. Location wise this hotel is okay if you frequent the Downtown Core. It is about 20 mins walk to the nearest Clarke Quay MRT, but has direct bus routes to either the Orchard / Bugis precinct .

Facility wise, the complimentary internet isn't particularly top-notch as connections frequently drops out and you had to reconnect. This is particularly not workable if you need to do any kind of VPN tunelling for business purposes.

About 6 out of 15 days I stayed here, room hasn't been serviced when I returned from work (~6pm), although I could see housekeeping cart just next door. My room must've been the last on the floor. A little bit of an inconvenience.

Don't bother with the breakfast in the morning is pathetic. There is zero in-hotel restaurant, but I would suggest visiting the many pubs nearby along the riverside for food.

We stayed here in October 2013 - the hotel was great! The studio loft is awesome with great views of the skyscrapers, and the swimming pool AND patio are awesome.

It would have been good if the pool closed a bit later (eg: 11 pm) as it is always so hot!

Staff was nice and friendly. The only thing was that the breakfast costed $20 each for a buffet, which I founded to be expensive.

I loved it and I would go back again anytime. It is closed to a river and it's surrounded from little bars and restaurants.

Lovely place, loved the studio loft concept! The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Big windows with nice views. Yes the bathroom and the toilet was a bit small, but they were adequate!!

The staff were very helpful. The swimming pool was lovely, just wished is stayed open longer in the evenings.

The location is great, just by the river with plenty of places to eat.

The loft type rooms are unique on its own. Floor to ceiling glass windows gives a great ambiance. Bathroom and toilet are a bit too small though. Pool deck was very nice with nice lounge chairs for relaxation. Metro station though is a bit far but with free shuttle service to clark quay station. Very clean and nice beds.
