“A Grand Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

We have stayed in the Grand Copthorne twice in the last 2 weeks,during a holiday in the Far East. On both occasions we were overwhelmed by the attentiveness and friendliness off the staff, nothing was too much trouble. Our rooms were of the highest quality, clean, well appointed and of a good size. The location of the property is perfect, within walking distance of the three main centres of nightlife. The water taxi that goes from the quay outside is a fantastic way to see the city, but also a much more relaxed method of travel than the normal taxi. There is also a great waterfront bar on the quayside with live music and drinks prices significantly below hotel prices.
Two tips, book directly on the MC web site, best price and deals . If you can book a club room, great value.

Nice location, noise free, free hourly shuttle service to Orchard Road. Great to walk along the riverside full of restaurants till Clark's Quay. Rooms are small with little space to walk around. Bath rooms need makeover. Wi-Fi is chargeable. Tariff at the restaurants is on the higher side. Staff are cooperative and hospitable. Did not have chance to review the amenities. On the whole I enjoyed my stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights and I have to say this is a pretty good accomodation.
Located near the Singapore river, the place is relatively quieter compared to the shopping belt but with more venues to hang out at night (e.g. pubs). Although not situated within the shopping belt zone, you can always take the free shuttle bus to Ochard road.

The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. Hotel staff are really polite too.

The hotel has a decent gym and tennis court.

Room Tip: choose one facing the SIngapore river

If some was has got bored staying in hotels on regular visit to Singapore , one May try this hotel in River area. The rear door opens to the river front which. One can follow and reach Robertson quay and Clarke Quay ( though this one may be 3-4 km) walking. It's full of restaurants. One has to really gamble to choose which restaurant to try in the vicinity. We were there on Halloween Night and night was lively even around 2 am midnight. Hotel is well located. We had complimentary breakfast and we're not disappointed as the spread was excellent. We took upgraded room which was bigger though we paid about 100Sgd extra but bathroom thought clean and we'll maintained has an engineering/ plumbing flaw which strangely none have noticed till date and when informed to front office they were surprised. The room we stayed on 7 th floor water would flow out of shower area no matter what common sense you use. But that apart the hospitality was excellent check in and check out was smooth and staff ever helpful. The hotel has courteous staff and this was my first stay here and it matched all expectation. Value for money.

Room Tip: Choose top level and upgraded rooms as normal rooms should be small.

Let's start with location, people stay its a bit far out, I think many of the places r walkable 30 minutes to china town, 30 mins to orchard road, 30 mins to museums taxi to little India, walk down the quay at night to lots of restaurants
Now the room ,very good , ask for the city side , great views, nice pool only me using it ! Gym etc all there . Room service was a bit slow .. But the rooms r clean and - Ali the concierge was very helpful and gave us discount tickets for various things
Breakfast us worth the $ and sets u up for the day all in all I would stay there again

Room Tip: Ask fir the city side

Hotel was nice but you weren't within walking distance of much. Views of the major demolition across the road. The room was small as was the bathroom. Kind sized bed wide but not long. Pool was a nice temperature and pleasant area.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing the back (riverfront). It's much nicer than the demolition site althoug...

The Grand Copthorne Waterfront hotel is centrally located in Singapore. The rooms are clean and spacious and the hotel offers a numer of in-house dining options. The staff are friendly and accomodating. The location of the hotel is made better by taking a stroll along the river to one of the many restaurants and bars on the river just 5-10 minutes walk away.Not the hustle and bustle of Clarke Quay, but for many that might be an advantage. If you want to do something unusual in Singapore - such as walking - Orchard Road can also be reached in 20 minutes on foot.
It should be noted that the hotel has a large conference capacity so parties, conferences, etc. are a common occurrence.
