Went to Swissotel, Merchant Court for 4 nights as the 2nd stage of our honeymoon. We had been looking forward to Singapore but imagine our disappointment when we arrived at the hotel to discover it was in the middle of a building site. Construction was in it's 571st day but our travel company had no knowledge of this?? At reception we were told we had a standard room and no breakfast despite our booking details showing we had a superior room with breakfast.
The room decor was tired. The walls needed the bubbly wallpaper stripping and then painting in a light colour. Fortunately our room faced the inner court and swimming pool and we couldn't hear the building. I think they may have been working 24 hours as we never saw the site vacant.
We found the breakfast fine with a varied selection. The location of the hotel is good being next to Clarke Quay and the MTR station.
It didn't spoil our visit as we loved Singapore and were out from 10am to mid night most days so only saw the hotel at night. Just a shame we didn't know about the construction work when we booked in August, we would have chosen somewhere else.
