“nice hotel, great location, but too expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2009

we stayed at this hotel recently and were quite disappointed when we entered our room. a maintenance man was in the bathroom fixing things, the bed had not been made properly, pillows were flung forward on the bed, blood stain on sheet. we spoke to the duty manager who moved us to a new room, where the mini bar was not fully stocked. we advised the duty manager of this, however upon checking out, the hotel tried to charge us nearly $60 in mini bar charges (they ended up cancelling the mini bar charges). breakfast was nice, a good selection. we did not eat any other meals at the hotel. the rooms were nice and very clean, however not worthy of the cost. hotel is in a great location in Clarke Quay, easy to walk to many restaurants. however, certainly not the best hotel I have stayed in for this price.

I stayed here for 3 nights whilst in transit during my medical elective overseas. The location is perfect to see Singapore (only 3/4mins walk from Clarke Quay MRT station) and there are plenty of restaurants in walking distance if you don't like the heat.

The hotel was beautiful. Extremely clean, great service, the room was amazing with a great view of Clarke Quay and the river. The previous reviewer mentioned the noise - I was on 7th floor (I think - can't quite remember) and I could hear the occasional thud of bass from a nightclub but it didn't bother me too much and I am the kind of person that gets extremely annoyed by things like this.

The pool and terrace are in a great location with sun on them all day. The changing rooms by the pool are clean but in need of a lick of paint. They also supply towels for the pool.

The stay was expensive but well worth the money. Breakfast had a good selection, I didn't use the restaurant at other times. Note there are several other restaurants in the hotel which are not run by the hotel itself. I tried the Indian there and it was the best curry i've ever tasted.

Be wary of the sea-food restaurant by the river closest to the hotel - their pricing is astronomically high and not at all clear. I ended up spending SGP$130 on a meal for just ONE. Not impressed!!

Back to the hotel - seriously, stay here if you want a good, luxurious base and have the cash to spare!!

Like most Novotel worldwide, very good. The swimming pool is nice, breakfast very good. Very helpful staff. I was upgraded to a larger room, and it was perfect.
One drawback: you must be aware of the location. The hotel rises just above Clarke Quay. So if you're staying in the side opposite CQ, I guess there's no problem, but my room with view on CQ (which is nice to see) was very noisy at night. Expect to have loud music coming up from CQ until late at night.

Novotel is an ultramodern hotel having all the comforts. As expected the price tag is high. But you cant augur much about because of its location in Clarqe Quay which is one of the most happening spots in Singapore given the prescence of around 20-30 pubs and restaurants in the vicinty. Only the elite stay at this hotel. The first thing that impressed me about this hotel was its amazing scenic location overlooking the clare quay. Night life at clarqe quay is particularly wonderful and u wouldnt want to miss that. I have got absolutely no complaints about this hotel. The only thing thats missing is a pub at the hotel itself. The hotel would have been complete. Definitely recomended for all types of people.Its got all the major cuisine types of restaurants,a beatiful lounge bar, a spacious gym and an indoor pool. But a tip is that given a choice, pick the higher floors for your stay. Skyline of Singapore is captivating.

Perfect location for exploring Singapore. Room,service and price all very resonable for being so central. Pool area was fab and just what we needed in the heat!
Free internet and a lovely bar area too. Didnt have breakfast or eat in the restaurant.
Would defo go back!

Hotel Novotel Clarke Quay is one of the best hotel I have stayed in. Located in the main city centre, it has great view around. You have 24 hrs open Mcdonalld within the same building.
The hotel staff are very helpfull and polite. Pool is very good and so is the fitness centre. For me an authentic Indian restaurant on the 6th floor was added attraction.

I would definitely recommend this to all my friends & colleagues to stay in this hotel....whenever they get an opportunity.
