Good points:
1. The room is spacious, clean, and comfy.
2. Near a beach, a market, and side by side with a mall (but the mall seems pretty quiet, not a popular one).
3. Check-in and check-out is so fast! No wonder, this is Singapore :)
4. Single beds are wide, 120 X 200 cm each.
5. I got the promotion rate Accor Group offers. Only SGD 88++ per night. Nett is SGD 103.58 which is very cheap according to average hotel or apartment rate at this time in Singapore. The price doesn't include breakfast.
6. Near Changi airport. Only costs me nett of SGD 15 for the cab to drive us to the hotel.
7. Free internet in each room. There's a cable to connect, not a wifi one.

Weak points:
1. Far from MRT. Alternative 1: you have to take public bus. Of course, first you have to know which bus no. to choose. Alternative 2: go with the hotel free shuttle to the airport then take Changi MRT to go to other destination in Singapore. It takes around 15-20 minutes to get to Changi. Takes extra time because you have to go to the airport first before jump to the MRT but I prefer this option because I'm more familiar with the MRT routes in SG rather than the bus routes. Alternative 3: take the cab. This alternative is not easy either because there is a long queue at the hotel lobby, waiting for the taxis.
2. Still use carpets. Like I said several times before, I have an allergic to dust. Lucky that the rug is clean :)
3. The bed is unbelievably hard!
3. Far from any Singapore tourism destinations. In this case, I really don't mind coz I arrive at night and check-out in the morning :)

Although the location is far from the city centre, the hotel does have shops and foodcourts around the area that we can look around and explore while the kids enjoyed their time in the swimming pool. Bus or Taxi is available so there's not much issue on moving around any area in Singapore.

I was at this hotel on 31/12/2010 to 02/01/2011 for New Year's eve.

First impression when I entered this hotel was one word, DULL. You will find unpolished marbled lobby even their woods ornament need to be repolished. This hotel was extremely busy. Had to que few minutes before finally served by a receptionist. And you can easily spot aircrews standing, sitting, and chatting on the lobby. Yup, this is the best nearest hotel to Changi Int'l Airport with complimentary shuttle bus back and forth the Changi.

Being an elite member of A|Club doesn't mean they will give extra service. Just plain but polite. Eventhough I rarely found hotel staff smile at me or any guests. Truly Singaporeans!

The best thing is they have the MOST spacious hotel room and bathroom in Singapore. It is 32 sq metres. So great if you come to Singapore with family and want to leave far from hustle and bustle of city center and Orchard Road. Every room has bath tub, which I never used. But all bathroom equipment such as shower head, faucet, toilet counter were all dull and, once again, need immediate polish. Furnitures in bed room are also dull and look so old. Felt like living in 60s with dark crémé colour everywhere.

About location, well if you walk across the street to Parkway Parade there're two bus stop you can find buses to many places like Orchard, Marina Bay, etc. To reach MRT Station, nearest is Paya Lebar, took a 15-mins bus ride or 30 minutes long walk. When I stayed, the hotel had morning shuttle bus, one way, to Paya Lebar MRT Station until 10am.

We stayed here for one night only on our way to Europe. We arrived late at night, very tired, and thankfully were checked in quickly. Staff were friendly and helpful and the room was clean and cool. The next day we sat by the pool area, which was attractive, and ate at the poolside restaurant.

It was perfect if you are looking for a hotel close to the airport and it offers free shuttles, which ran on time and were fantastic. The only downside was the distance from Orchard Rd, although the hotel ran shuttles to and from there also. I didnt find the surrounding area particularly attractive or enticing, but we werent there for long at all.

Overall a really nice hotel in an 'ok' location. If you dont mind using the shuttles, it was perfect and very reasonably priced.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore. We are glad to know you had a pleasant stay with us during your stopover in Singapore and enjoyed the services provided by our friendly colleagues as well as the swimming pool and the poolside restaurant. And, indeed, being only 15 minutes away from Changi airport and providing complimentary airport shuttle services to and from the airport from 6.30 am to 2.00 am daily makes our hotel a perfect choice for a stopover in Singapore. Should you have more time during your next stay hopefully you will get to see more of the hotel surrounding which is full of life and reflects the cultural side of this beautiful country. We look forward to seeing you again during your next visit to Singapore.

The Hotel seems to be old and upon arrival to the hotel room, there is no welcome drinks as like other 4 or 5 rated star hotel provides. Room Interior furnishing is old and no lights control panel is allocated. Its not a happy and pleasant stay anyway.

Great service on all fronts. Neat well maintained rooms. Terrific choice of restaurants. Handy location for all transport needs, public & hotel supplied. Lots of the different cultures that make up Singapore are nearby to this hotel with some examples being the traditional eaterys located on East Coast Road. Also great easy access to the East Coast Park. Overall I would recommend a stay at the Grand Mecure Roxy to anyone.

the hotel is fine, the rooms are well appointed and clean. There are some views to be had depending on what side of the building you are on. It is within walking distance of the beach/waterfront, but there is very little else in that area of town for a tourist or visitor. There is no subway stop anywhere near, so you will have to use the bus or taxi to get anywhere and it is about a 10-15 minute shuttle bus ride to and from the airport as well.
