“nice location, standard room,”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

we stayed there Aug. 3, 2013 for one night staycation. the room was standard, like a business hotel, with one king bed. bed was comfortable. room not very big not small either. I forgot to ask for a river view room; so the view was just city street. we loved the location of the hotel. it is in the upper part of singapore river. not crowded, so we can really sit outside and enjoy the river view. you can also pay $3 for a single trip down the river to merlion by river taxi. There are two river taxi stations nearby. but you may need to wait some time for the boat to come. breakfast was OK, we hoped there were more Chinese food. there are also free shuttle bus service to orchard road, chinatown, etc. overall, i think it is good value as the price was relatively cheaper compared to other 5 star hotels in Singapore. d

I stayed five nights in this hotel. The staff has been really helpful throughout my stay. The internet connection is very good. I especially like the design of the buttons for cleaning the room. Great facilities. The only thing inconvenient is the plugs in the room. Most plugs were either close to the floor or blocked by the desk. It is uneasy to recharge the electronic devices.

A very nice hotel in a good location. The rooms are very clean and spacious and we were provided with robes and slippers which is a nice touch after a long flight. We requested interconnecting rooms and these were provided. We enjoyed the good variety offered at the buffet breakfast, we were seated quickly and service was very good. After check out we stored our luggage at the hotel and used the free shuttle to Orchard Road. This is a good hotel for a relaxing stopover and I would definitely stay there again.

Got a better deal over the internet than going straight to the hotel, which I can never understand, but we paid the going Singapore rate for a reasonable hotel and were pleasantly surprised. We had swapped at the last minute from another cheaper hotel because I didn't want a room with no windows or one that was small and faced a noisy street.
Got a "bay" view room that looked down the river towards the buildings around Marina. The room was clean and bright and the view great.
Internet on my Android tablet in the room was complimentary but almost useless due to some proxy constraints that meant I couldn't get beyond the first page for many sites. That said, the staff were helpful when an emergency at home meant I had to jump on to booking sites and print results using their business centre.
Loved the 20 minute walk from the hotel down along the river to Clarke Quay MRT station as the starting point for our daily excursions. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants on the way depending on the time of day and which side of the river. For someone else this might be a bit of an ask in the heat, but we found it a good wind-down at the beginning and end of the day.
Overall, not cheap, but a very relaxing and pleasant couple of days stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a deal that gives you the view down the river towards Marina Bay.

We booked into this hotel for 3 nights to break up our trip home from Europe.
At check in we had the option of upgrading to Executive club. This was a great choice as it allowed us to have breakfast in the club lounge overlooking the water.The view was magnifient. Although the breakfast had less options it was preferable to the large buffet downstairs.
It also provided "happy hour " every night which provided a range of cocktails as well as delicious food.
Our room was lovely and the staff were attentive. The location of the hotel was excellent, with a river boat just outside the door as well as free shuttle to the central area.
I would definitely consider this hotel if I visit Singapore again.
