“Fantastic - hard to find better”
Reviewed January 3, 2011

Stayed 8 nights over Xmas/New Year. Location is fantastic. Just round corner from Orchard Rd, right near MRT. McDonalds, Starbucks next door. Pasta, KFC, 7 Eleven and small asia cafes across road. You would not find a better location for Orchard Rd Hotels. So many shopping centres so close you can shop, go back and rest, go out again and again. Underneath Tangs is a takeaway with foods, fruit/juice stand that was nice. Carousel Breakfast is incredible. Everything and every culture catered for. Normal cost is $38 per person so try to get it included in your rate - well worth it. We had breakfast, then maybe a drink during day and then dinner at night. No need for lunch. The mini bar refill every day consisted of 2 x Tiger cans, 2 x cokes, 2 x water, 1 orange juide & 2 Oreo's. This is a huge saving. Beers cost around $12 each if buying in bar and cokes etc about $5. Alcohol is VERY expensive. Had standard room for 3 of us (1 fold out bed). Room big enough for 3 adults. Bathroom nice with good amenities. Pool area and gym good and although not a resort style, certainly good for a swim in the humid conditions. MRT pass is excellent and you can top up and if dont use at end of stay, get a refund on whats left. So easy to use and get around. Much easier than Melb or Sydney.Taxi's so cheap also. Sun Tec, Vivo Shopping centre incredible - well worth a visit - allow plenty of time. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Need to get down for breakfast before 9.30 as there is a long line to get in after that. Nice bar area upstairs if you dont have Club rooms. Recommend you visit Sentosa, Marina Bay Sands and do spend the $20 and go to top. Universal was booked out for week in advance which we didnt expect so didnt get to go there. Songs of Sea also booked on night we were on Sentosa.We to Night Safari and a little disappointed. Not as many animals as expected and Taronga and Melb zoo is comparable. Take mosquito repellant and do the train tours first to get idea of layout. Expensive to eat there (for what you get). Took a hop on/off bus tour which would recommend early in your stay to get idea of what to see in Singapore. Goes alot of places and need couple of days if want to see everything. Cannot fault this hotel at all and would recommend highly. You may pay a little more than some Orchard Rd hotels but the extra's like mini bar and breakfast save you so much money overall. Staff are incredible friendly and helpful. I cannot imagine you will find a better hotel for price, location, service and would never stay any where else in Singapore.

This hotel is tucked away in a quiet corner of Scotts Road, and is not as bustling and big as some of the other 5-star establishments in the area. However, the Royal Plaza had everything we needed on our shopping holiday -- excellent service, a good sized room with plasma TV and a recently upgraded bathroom (with a fantastic rain shower that offered perfect therapy for weary bodies and tired feet after hours of walking).
The location too is perfect -- right in the shopping hub but away from the madding crowd. A quick walk down to all the popular malls and a Starbucks and McDonalds kiosk right outside the main entrance. Perfect!

Dear ririkl,

It is wonderful to hear that rainshowering helps you to rejuvenate and relax. I can imagine how the rain shower head enhanced your shower experience. A normal shower head releases water at high pressure but rainshowering really are just big drops of water falling down on you, naturally. I am delighted that we could bring you one of nature’s little pleasures in the comfort of your room.

We look forward to seeing you again!

I'll NEVER stay in another hotel in Singapore! This hotel is off the chain! Service, from every staffer, from the time you get out your taxi. This is more than a 4star hotel; One could label it such but no doubt they are 5 star quality in every aspect! I HIGHLY recommend this hotel to any and everyone who visits the beautiful city of Singapore!

My first stay was in last September. During our second stay during the Christmas weekend, our friends and us stayed in two Club rooms and one suite and thoroughly enjoyed the Royal Club lounge hospitality.

The Royal Club Touch is truly exceptional. During our second stay, we noticed many guests knew the names of the Club staff! The staff was always delighted to welcome a regular guest back.

During the Xmas evening, the Royal Club was filled with many guests who made merry with their families and friends. Assistant Customer Service Manager Tony Khoo and his earnest team of ladies worked very hard the whole day.

We thank them for their hard work in making everyone at the Royal Club feel special and comfortable, despite having a full house!

Throughout the weekend, whether it was the morning breakfast, tea or evening cocktails, Tony, Rosnah, Cynthia and Nina made sure that each guest was well attended. Especially Tony who worked throughout the long weekend. I personally thanked him for his excellent service towards our group.

The Royal Plaza has once again delighted us! We are now planning a possible CNY stay just to enjoy the kind hospitality at the Club.

We stayed here on transit home from Vietnam so this was a great hotel to relax/decompress and clean up in.

There are plenty iof cheaper hotels available, but for its price this hotel offers very good value.

Its location is handy to all the shopping Orchard Street has to offer.

The service was impeccable with flawless check-in and checkout. Staff were very friendly, in fact the nicest thing about our stay was the friendliness of the cleaners who would always smile and chat with us!

Our room was flawless, and the complimentary minibar is a nice touch.

My only real issue would be the doormen seemed pretty disinterested in their work and werent proactive in being helpful, which wouldnt bother me if not for the price you pay to stay here.

We would stay here again if passing through Singapore.

From the moment we checked in, to the moment we reluctantly checked out, it was outstanding service from everyone in the hotel.
Our room was spotless and very fresh, with possibly the only critism being an extra armchair which would be a great addition for extra comfort.
The mini bar was much appreciated as was the addition of a Nespresso coffee machine.
The breakfast buffet was just incredible and just about the best we have had anywhere, it was great to sit there and watch the world go by.
The pool area was not huge, but perfectly adequate.
We will most definitely stay at this hotel next time we go to Singapore, the location is perfect for all the shops and the MRT, with plenty of places to dine.
The staff are the best thing about the Plaza as they were always freindly and efficient with nothing to much trouble.
To sum up in one word our stay there was " Perfect "

Dear geishaPerth,

Thank you for taking time to write us such a wonderful review. With your note, we know that we are doing things right!

I am glad that you enjoyed the complimentary minibar items as well as the Nespresso machine in your room. Like you, many of us enjoy a good cup of aromatic coffee, it can really make your day! I hope that you have found a suitable blend from the 6 capsules that are replenished daily. Complimentary Nespresso machines are available in all our Premiere rooms; Club rooms and Suites. Try a new capsule the next time you are here!

See you again!

Only stayed here one night prior to heading to K.L. so can't comment on pool and other facilities that we did not use or even see.
The front facade is such that you might miss this hotel if you were unsure of its location. One inside the lobby is what you expect from a 5 star hotel, superb.
Internet was included as well as breakfast.
The bathroom had a bath and the water was hot and strong.
The room was a good size and well laid out.
The mattress felt firm however seemed softer to sleep on than most others throughout Asia. With a bad back and neck this was good for me.
The breakfast was simply superb. The wife had two cappuccinos which was no extra cost and she states they were the only good coffees she had on the trip (3 locations, 5 different hotel and numerous restaurants etc).
The breakfast selection was far greater than anything I have seen anywhere. Lychees stuffed with pineapple, a juice bar making juices to order stand out as a sample of what was here and not other hotels.

Dear blecwill,

The fundamentals of a hotel are to provide a good night’s rest. As I read your review, it put a smile on my face. Not only have you mentioned our room features, you have also wrote about how they have suited and delighted you during your stay with us. We embrace detailed feedback like yours as it helps us understand and continuously improve on how we can make things better!

I am so happy that we made a difference and stood out among the hotels that you have stayed with. At Royal Plaza on Scotts, we believe that it is the little details that make a big difference.

Since your wife is an keen coffee drinker, I am certain she will enjoy a Nespresso coffee in her room the next time you are with us.
