This was our second visit to the Concorde in 18 months and they again proved to be one of the better value for money hotels in a pretty expensive Singapore hotel market. Knowing our flight was arriving at 6am (and check in time was 2pm) I emailed the hotel in advance to ask if we could make use of the Premier Lounge (we had booked Premier rooms) until our rooms were ready, to which the hotel agreed. Imagine our delight on arrival to be told that one room was already ready and that the other would be shortly as well! By 9:30 - after breakfast in the Premier Lounge - we were unpacked and settled. The Premier Lounge staff were fantastic - especially Farydha (spelling? sorry) who went out of her way to find an Indian restaurant close by and also completed our ongoing flight check in for us. Happy hour at the Concorde is serious stuff - cocktails, spirits, wine plus so much food that on two occasions we did not bother with dinner. During the day a visit to the Lounge gets you tea or coffe or softies plus biscuits or choccies. Breakfast in the Lounge is fabulous - great choice and freshly made eggs anyway you like them. The pool area is a bit dated - but the pool is clean and huge and very refreshing. The man at the pool can get you food and drink if asked. The rooms are big - beds and pillows comfy and room staff did a great job with cleaning etc. The lady at the tour desk was also very helpful - organised a last minute outing and always took the time to say hello. The location is spot on - Dhoby Ghaut station is a 3-4 minute walk away, as is Plaza Singapura. From there you can go anywhere and everywhere - as we have done twice now. If you walk in the other direction there are more restaurants (by the Holiday Inn) and a fabulous night time food market - great food. During the day for lunch we often ate in the food court underneath the hotel - a huge lunch set us back a total of $4 AUD. No it is not a 5 star hotel but you are not paying 5 star prices either. What you get is a centrally located hotel close to all amenties and more with large clean rooms and fabulous service by friendly and efficient staff. I can't wait to go back again!
