“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2014

We checked in to the old wing, but it was too noisy as renovation was going on. The staff changed us a room in the new wing which was much better. The gym and pool area were very nice. The room was up to standard, nicely decorated. The hotel was in a good location, next to Raffles Hotel where the hotel museum was a must see. Across the street is Chijimes where you could dine and enjoy the festivals held from time to time. Walking distance to Burgis junction where you could find street shops and hawker center. Overall, value for money considered its location.

The Carton Singapore, is a good hotel that won't let you down, in a great location. If you have an interest in Raffles Hotel (which I do) but sadly can't afford to stay there, The Carlton is a great choice, as it's just cross the road from Raffles, some of the rooms in The Carlton look over Raffles. For others this hotel is still in a great location, walking distance from Boat, and Clarke quay and just across the road from raffles city. As for the hotel itself, you won't be let down, rooms are of a good standard, i'd say there 4 star rooms, everything great, but maybe lack that something extra that would move it onto 5 star, but maybe I'm being picky. Whenever I i arrive in Singapore I have never pre booked a room and I normally end up here, that must say something about the place, and that is I always know it won't let me down.

Room Tip: Try to get the new rooms, hotel has recently been renovated.

Singapore is a superb place to visit , the Carlton Hotel is centrally placed, in easy reach of the MRT. Raffles city shopping centre is just across the road, a great place to eat and shop. The hotel staff a very helpful , especially Jessica Foo in the Gravity Bar. I recommend the Carlton Hotel to you all.

A fantastic hotel, in an excellent location.

Stayed here for two nights on a stop over on my way to Australia, found the staff very helpful and friendly, and my room was lovely, located on the 18th floor in the new part of the hotel the room had a great view down to the swimming pool which is on the 5th floor.

Nothing was to much trouble and the staff were a credit to the hotel. If your going to Singapore then I couldn't recommend this place highly enough.

Room Tip: ask for a room in the new part of the hotel, 18th floor is worth asking for.

Good location, just across the road from Raffles City and good fitness facility. Disappointed to find out that there is no wifi available in the rooms, only wired internet, expected this to be a basic for a 5 star business hotel in a place like Singapore in 2014! Also wired internet is charged as SGD20 for 24hrs and is slow! Dirty carpet in the room. Full of long black hairs everywhere, including in the bathroom. Staff at reception not friendly at all. Never smiling and somewhat rude towards customers, especially the male staff. I wanted to get a new key card as mine stopped working. The staff seemed to be changing shift at the time. After waiting in line for 10 minutes, not only no apology but staff seemed annoyed that I needed a new key card. Very different to what one would normally expect in Asia. Not recommended.

The location is great however the rooms and corridors definitely need a huge upgrade . My room was in the older part but there is no excuse for peeling paint and stained carpets .
On a positive note , the coffee shop is very good and the staff who serve here are excellent , unlike those in other parts of the hotel .
I would not recommend this hotel as there are other hotels nearby who charge a similar rate and provide a much better experience .

Located next to the Raffles Hotel and Raffles City Shopping Centre, the Carlton Hotel serves as a great hub to explore Singapore. The hotel itself is decent, nothing spectacular, with all the usual amenities including a medium sized swimming pool and adequately equipped gym. The rooms are of a good size for Singaporean standards. One thing that must be pointed out is that the hotel is very busy, meaning breakfast can be quite hectic (despite the staff being incredibly professional) and the lounge being filled at most times of the day (free wifi). Overall a very convenient and functional hotel.
