This is an average 5* property, it's tired and the haunt of flight crew, cruise packages and PRC tour packages. Nothing wrong with any of those but their booking agent's are obviously attracted by its cheap rates! Basically the hotel needs a massive refurb:
On the positive side:
- great location above raffles city shopping centre with a great food court and supermarket;
- above the subway station
- fantastic views
- good sized rooms
On the negative:
- the electrical outlets have all yellowed;
- the bathroom fittings are rusting etc.
- beds are extremely uncomfortable
- the lobby is not big enough to cope with the numbers of people checking in so expect a queue.
- the pools are shared with the Fairmont next door and are quiet small as a result are far to busy for the number of people trying to use them (though I find this a common problem across Singapore hotels)
- the service is not up to usual Asia standards, staff yelling into walkie talkies at someone whilst in the lift with guests
Stay here is you are getting an excellent rate (and Sing can be very expensive) but set your expectations to what you are paying for.
