I know it's at the cheaper end of hotels in Singapore but Riverside still comes in at UD 100 per night and is the flag ship of the Fragrance Singapore group. The rooms are astoundingly small - hardly even room to stretch my legs!
The breakfast was very poor - you have to make do with a choice of 4 fixed breakfasts - all are overloaded with cholesterol - no healthy food options; and the restaurant staff are particularly unhelpful when it comes to trying to negotiate a choice. Also, if you stay for a few nights - why would you always want the same breakfast?! Seems a baffling rigidity for guests to endure.
As a final sore point for me, I paid for internet yet was unable to detect their router for my entire stay. it seemed as if their ISP had blocked my IP address for some reason. This meant I had to go downstairs to the lobby every time I wanted to do anything online - hardly conveneient. Their IT dept were unable to resolve the problem for my entire 5 night stay.
The only consolation was that the manager gave me a free upgrade - from an impossibly small room to a very small room - this helped the hotel avoid a score of 1 from me. :)
Plus, the lobby staff are actually quite helpful and pleasant.
Note: you pay a huge premuim for being in this part of central Singapore - Clark Quay. Better to stay a little further out and getter a better hotel and prices, and catch the tube (MRT).
