“Pleasant stay at Carlton”
Reviewed March 6, 2014 via mobile

overall good standard but nowadays wifi is a must in all rooms unless the hotel's policy is to act as a matrimonial agency for all people to meet in the main lobby for chatting and exchanging vows. Otherwise, breakfast is ok and needs to vary from day to day. Home made pastries are the best. Waiters and kitchen attendants are helpful and courteous! On the overall, good and pleasant hotel, well located, walking distance from clarke quay and bugis village. MRT very near.

We stayed at the Carlton Hotel for 3 nights - in 2nd out 5th March 2014. The City Hall MRT is a few steps away under the adjacent Raffles City Shopping Centre which is very convenient. The beds are comfortable and they replenish the complimentary water daily. The towels were soft and fluffy and the shower had good pressure. The door men remember you by name and always seem happy to see you after you return to the hotel at the end of the day. Check in and check out is efficient and you get priority for a taxi at the concierge if you are traveling to the airport. My only negative about the hotel is that you unable to get free WIFI in your room. We offered to pay for WIFI but this was not an option either. There is a port in the room if you bring a laptop but most travellers prefer smaller devices like iPads or phones to connect with the world. If you need to use WIFI, you have to go down and sit in the lobby but because it is such a busy hotel with lots of business people, it is nearly impossible to find a chair to sit down on to check emails etc.

Room Tip: Remember to tell your Taxi driver that it's the Carlton Hotel on Bras Basah Road or they may tak...

I only stayed at the Carlton for 1 night. Check in was quick and easy with no fuss. I had made an email request to stay on a higher floor and was given the 17th out of 26 so I was happy. The doorman on arrival (YY) was lovely with friendly with a smile on his face. He helped me again later on in the day with some information and shared a joke. Our 3rd encounter of the day and he was asking if I saw and went where we had earlier discussed. Great memory and the perfect person for his job.

Location, easy to catch taxis from. Raffles is on the opposite corner with the raffles shopping centre agin on the other opposite corner. (Don't let the name fool you, the stores weren't the over priced and ridiculous and they have a lovely food court). A fair walk from the main shopping in Orchard though on the same street. A taxi was about $10 each way.

The room was nicely decorated and well laid out with everything I required. The only complaint from my stay was that the aircon was set on about 15c when I arrived and though I adjusted the thermostat it didn't change in the room the whole time. I ended up sleeping in the robe under the doona. By the time I figured out this was going to be an issue it was late and I was too tired to do anything about it. So my fault !

The pool area is nice and plenty of seating. The foyer is nice and welcoming with a coffee area also. The bar is just off the foyer and out of the way. Options for food and drink there were good and the drink prices not crazy like in other places in Singapore. There was a lovely duo playing nice modern relaxed music when I was there.

I would happily stay there again, solo, couple or family !

This is a convenient hotel for many reasons. If this is your first time to Singapore, then you must have a Singapore Sling at Raffles Hotel – it’s across the road from the Carlton Hotel. If you want some classic Singapore shopping go to the Raffles City Shopping Centre – it’s across the road from the Carlton Hotel. If you want some great Singaporean food go to Chijimes – it’s across the road from the Carlton Hotel. If to hanker to hang out along Orchard Road then catch the MRT from City Hall station – it’s across the road from the Carlton Hotel. If you want to dine downtown Indian, Chinese, stylish bars or just the Marina Bay Sands – guess what, all walking distance from The Carlton Hotel. Need to be convinced further??? The Carlton Hotel is moderately priced, clean and it’s…you know what I mean …across the road from everything.

Very good hotel, super friendly staff, nice pool.

The food was very good, and loved the variety at breakfast. Definitely will be back many times.
The locations is very central next to the old raffles hotel, and to the mall. great restaurants in the vicinity, just across the street, and at the mall 1 min away walking.

Room Tip: higher floors for the great view.

Just had 2 nights here in Singapore and couldn't fault the Carlton. Great location right next door to Raffles Hotel and within easy walking distance of the Marina and MRT train station if needed. Staff very friendly especially the doorman who always has a smile and is very helpful with directions or recommending restaurants etc.
The room was very good as we were in the new wing and the breakfast was first class, very good choice with something for everyone. Will definitely stop here on our next visit to Singapore.

This is easily one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The rooms were so spacious and modern the bathroom was amazing! Iv never had a bath on holiday usually just a shower to save time for exploring but my god that bath tub I couldn't resist! Pure luxury. All bathroom necessities ladies need which was a nice touch. Lobby was spacious and offered free wifi and I also managed to have it in room which I didn't pay for so was pleasantly surprised.

Location was great, Easy walking distance to the Singapore Flyer and the Marine. We also did Universal Studios and Sentosa Island which was easy to get to.
