“Good Location, We Recommend the Premier Room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2009

We loved our 4-night stay at Holiday Inn Parkview, Singapore. We stayed here from June 11-15. The hotel is a 3 minute walk from the Somerset MTR station making it very convenient even if we go home late with many shopping bags. It is near the Centrepoint Mall, Paragon, Takashimaya, etc.
We weren't able to try the Indian Restaurant that was highly recommended since we were out of the hotel most of the time. We only tried the Buffet Breakfast and the Room Service which are just okay. I find it too expensive for what they can offer.
We stayed in a Premier Room. All Premier Rooms are newly renovated and thus have a modern look. The king bed was very comfortable. Rooms including the bathrooms are very clean. They refill the toiletries everyday.
We didn't have problems with the noise as it was contained on the 9-6pm construction hours and as a I have mentioned, we were not in the hotel most of the time so the noise didn't bother us. There was definitely no ongoing construction after work hours.
See the pictures I posted to give you an idea on the Premier Room. The other rooms are being renovated now that is why some people say they are outdated.
We will definitely stay in this hotel again on our next visit to Singapore.

On the plus side, we arrived early --- 6am --- with two small children and the front desk allowed us into our room straightaway at no extra charge. Staff were friendly and nice to our children. Swimming pool area was nice.
On the down side --- renovation to the reception area included very loud drilling, shouting and banging all day long. As we were still on European time and wanted to sleep in the day, this was unbearable after a while. We could not be moved as all the quiet rooms were full. The children's channel on the TV was down, and while they said they would send someone to look at it, no-one came; the channel was not fixed during our stay. The room was not serviced in the three days we were there. On the second day I rang down and asked that someone come and remove the old cups and wet towels, and the lady on reception sighed heavily and had quite a bit of tone in response to a fairly reasonable request. I thought 10 singaporean dollars for a cup of hot chocolate was pretty excessive, as was 55 dollars for two lemonades, a glass of wine and a small beer. I thought internet access was bizarrely expensive, especially as so many cafes and bars have free wifi, and there were a couple of those next door.

We stayed at the Park View twice during our recent trip to Singapore, Malaysia, and Australia. The primary reason we picked this hotel was because it is one of the few that offers two double beds at a (relatively) affordable price. On our first stay (3 nights), we were upgraded to one of the refurbished rooms, which was very nice. The large TV and DVD player were nice touches for my young kids as they dealt with the 12-hour time difference (they could watch a movie at 4:00 am while Mom and Dad slept). On the second day, all 4 of us received a little mp3 player to thank us for putting up with the noise from the construction. It can get a little loud, but it is only from about 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, so we rarely heard anything.

We stayed here again for two nights after returning from Australia. This time, we got one of the older rooms. It is perfectly fine, though it pales in comparison with the newer rooms. For about S$30/night, it is worth paying for the upgrade.

Pros: The location is really good for easy access to shopping and transportation. The Somerset or Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations are about 5 minutes away on foot. There is also a Cold Storage supermarket 2 minutes away at Centrepoint, as well as plenty of shopping and food (including late night food). You can get rooms with two double beds, which means avoiding the hassle of paying for an extra bed or room if you are traveling with more than 3 people. The pool area is nice and includes a wading pool for small children. Finally, the staff is attentive and helpful.

Cons: Breakfast and internet are expensive and are only included with the room at much higher prices. We did not bother with the breakfast since there are so many options available nearby. Also, while the hotel is not in Geylang or next to Orchard Towers, there are some activities in and around Orchard Plaza and Cuppage Plaza that might offend some. There are a few health centres in Orchard Plaza where women give "massages," and I had a couple nice young ladies ask me to take them back to my hotel room when walking along the road that separates the Park View from those two plazas. It is not overt and no one approached me except when I was alone at night, but, for those who are offended by this sort of activity, you will want to make sure that stay on the Centrepoint side of the area and away from Orchard Plaza and Hotel Grand Central.

I highly recommend it for a family with two children that does not want to spend more than S$200-225/night.

Enjoyed the convenient location of this special hotel. Delicious buffet breakfast and relaxing pool. Helpful staff, frequent taxis and close to restaurants and shopping centres. Able to accommodate 5 people in one room. Dark room for kids with jet lag.

Stayed in the hotel with my wife and 2 kids. The Renovation is going on and they are renovating the rooms. The new rooms which were ready looked great. Though we stayed in one of their old rooms, which was no less comfortable and very good.

Location is very good as the famous Orchard Road is walking distance.

Exceptional mention to the kind gestures of the staff which makes one more welcome and will definitely recommend others. A SPECIAL WORD OF THANKS TO Mr. KENNY, FRONT DESK.

I chose this hotel through the reviews on tripadvisor for a s'pore hotel that allows you to take one room with two small children. The refurbished rooms are very nice with flatscreen tv's etc. The breakfast buffet is pathetic and is served in this horrible brown 70's coffee shop. The service in the coffee shop is pretty poor too. The pool is average but the hot tub is none too clean. The steam room is one of those home models. But I'd stay here again, because everything else in s'pore is even more overpriced and at least I get to take only one room. Some reviews mention the noise from the refurbishment, just specify that you are given a room where the work has been done. That's what I did.
