“Good value for the money in an expensive city”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

The Grand Pacific Hotel is located on the Victoria Street in downtown Singapore. It is on a busy street in a very central location. The hotel is well located near Raffles and MRT stations. There is lots of shopping on Victora St. as well as other nearby areas. There is heavy bus traffic on the street as well as lots of cabs for good transport to all other areas in the city.

At reception, in the hotels small lobby, the check-in process was smooth and quick. The rooms at this older hotel are a bit dated. Room size was good but not great while the bathroom was a bit small. The hotel was found to be clean and well maintained. Windows are of an odd design with no direct access to outside window which is located several feet from the room window. Service was great and always friendly. Free water was provided daily.

The hotel has multiple resturants on-site while there are a good number of eating options in the area around the hotel. Complementary breakfast was included in the tariff. The breakfast was fine with decent number of options with the regular fare of provisions.

The hotel has a small but usable pool several stories above street level.

All in all it was a good experience and it was up to my expectations. The hotel is fine value for the money in an expensive city but there are other better hotels in the city.

Very tired rooms I moved once due to poorly installed windows , its all a bit jaded the usual be wary of the word grand but I slept well and everything worked, second day found the free water in he fridge pity they didn't mention it, looks and feels a bit fawlty towers but if you get it at great rate it's central and easy enough to find although annoyances are tv which keeps going off on some type of timer but breakfast is good couldn't see anything tempting in its eateries so bought snacks and booze in little shop to left.

This Hotel is all about location...this is near to Bugis/Raffles/SunTech City and little long walk to Marina...else there is nothing good for the good amount of price they charge.

Rooms are very ordinary, with no view whatsoever! Tiles in toilets were somewhat peeling off...not expected from a good range hotel. during my stay, 2 times, all of their lifts got technical snag and had to wait 15+ mins, before it could be restored.

Hotel in general is always crowded...as they are primarily into tie ups with Tour companies...most time of the day, you will see flock of people checking in and out.

Next time I visited SGP, I discovered that Carlton (just opp to this hotel) could also be booked at almost same rate...so considering the same, would certainly say that this is extremely overpriced for the quality it offers.

We were booked in here by Imagine Cruising at the end of our holiday. The hotel is well located near Raffles, MRT stations and within walking distance of the historical centre and marina.
The property needs complete refurbishment ; until then the rooms, particularly the bathrooms need a thorough clean. Nothing in the room was replaced until requested although the bedding was clean and crisp.
The staff were very helpful and cheerful but lacked management direction.

Stayed 4 nights and really nothing to complain about. Rooms were big, clean and comfortable. Bathroom clean although aging a little. Service was great and always friendly. Free water provided daily. Has in room safe for valuables. Pool and gym were great too. Best thing was the location. So much in bugis area to keep us busy and close to MRT to get around.

My wife and I stayed at the grand pacific from 4th. to 7th. February 2014. This hotel is an old one which has undergone many name changes. My first stay here was almost 20 years ago when it was known as "Tai Pan Ramada". Sometime later I stayed there when it was called "Hotel Allson".
Though I knew was old, since the booking site indicated that the premier rooms in the higher floors were refurnished, we opted to stay here as I liked and knew the location.

We checked into room No:1403, which was exactly as the picture and the description in the booking website. It was clean, spacious and had all the standard fittings you expect. The toilets have not undergone any major alterations, but was clean and everything worked perfectly.
The staff was quite friendly and accommodating, giving us an early check-in as well as a late check-out without any fuss. Daily buffet breakfast was quite good with all the standard dishes as well as some local dishes on offer in ample quantities.

All in all it is a good hotel, and I think we got value for our money. Nothing to highlight, but it met all or needs. For those not familiar with Singapore, Grand Pacific is conveniently located in the Bugis area where there are many shopping malls as well as restaurants. Food in not a problem.
Also there are 3 MRT stations close by, which makes travelling easy and cheap, For Catholic visitors there is a church (St. Joseph's) almost next door with daily masses at 1.15 and 6.30pm.

Room Tip: go for the rooms in the higher floors (14th Floor) which are refurnished.
