I had selected Robertson Quay Hotel by chance for my first time in Singapore years ago.
Since then I've always returned because I find what I need in this pricey city with its hot climate: location, pool, comfortable bed and quite affordable price.
It's very true that the hotel deadly needs a renovation.
Rooms are tiny but again, the bed is comfortable, and we can enjoy large views of the skyline and green space. TV programs aren't bad. I've seen tinier rooms in Hong Kong.
What is special is the bathroom. It is the smallest I've ever seen. First time visitors, be ready to that. Yet there is still a WC, a sink and a shower with a curtain.
The swimming pool is at the 4th floor if I remember. Yes this is small but you can have it just for yourself most of the time. Use the heavy waterfall to massage your back!
If your room is nearby you can walk directly to/from the pool. Very cool, isn't it?
The reception is, well, not the warmest in the world. Nothing to complain about, though.
The buffet breakfast is the same every morning but you'll be full before leaving the hotel. The dining room is pretty pleasant and bright. It is also possible to eat outside.
The location is the big plus of the hotel, just near Clarke Quay and in front of the river. Numerous restaurants and bars are nearby. This is where people go to chill out night time and during the week-end. No need to take taxi or MRT after dinner, just a 5 min walk.
Clarke Quay MRT is nearby. You can even walk until the Merlion through Boat Quay.
If you like food courts, the Maxwell Food Centre in Chinatown (with its famous Tian Tian Chicken Rice) is at 5 min by taxi.
I wish there was free wifi Internet in the hotel, but this is Singapore, nothing is free ...
