Our second stay at Merchant Court, and third overall at Swissotel in Singapore. Our last trip we stayed at Swissotel Stamford. Now the two are very different, but also very alike. Merchant Court is as everyone reading these reviews located at Clarke Quay, which is a very busy and popular eating & entertainment district.
So location is great, travel around is made very easy with the MRT station next door (tip: turn right on leaving the hotel, and follow the balcony right around the hotel to the MRT station, rather than going across the road into Central shopping centre).
Room: Well there is no comparison to the room we had at Stamford Rd, but we went for budget, so view wise, nothing to rave about - a view of the shopping centre/office block across the way. But that wasnt a problem, we werent in the room all day. Room size, small but bigger than I had remembered, with a mini bar, big screen tv, aircon that was perfect, writing desk, loads of power points. The bathroom was nice, big, clean. I have to say the room service staff were terrific.
Pool: The pool area is much better than Stamford Rd site, and has great views and a quiet place to do nothing if you have the time to do nothing.
Check in/out: No dramas, quick and efficient, paying for a late check out is terrific, so if they can. Do it, most flights to Oz are later in the evening, and having somewhere to shower before leaving is a nice touch.
As always: Would I stay there again - yes!
