Park View Hotel
Ranked #233 of 316 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed June 28, 2011

There are many Park View Hotels in Singapore. We are talking about the one on 81, Beach Road.
We had done an online booking for a double room with an extra bed. We were charged extra for this as we were told that the room is bigger to accommodate for an extra bed. On reaching there we were in for a big shock as the room allocated to us was very small with almost no space to walk after putting in an extra mattress. Even the central cooling in the room was not working. When we complained, they refused to admit that cooling was an issue!! They also said that this is the “big” room they were talking about. When we did not relent, they finally agreed that the actual room booked by us was bigger but they have given it to somebody else. After a lot of argument, they changed our room.

The new room was bigger and comfortable. They also had a microwave and kettle in the room. The breakfast was good but the service was very slow. There was no vegetarian option (except for bread, butter and Jam) but since we are non-vegetarian, we didn’t have any problem. They used to take a lot of time to refill the buffet items, even the coffee! The staff was indifferent, neither courteous nor rude.

The location of the hotel is good with the Bugis MRT station just at a 10 minutes walking distance.

This is a classic styled hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was great, spacious and clean. Its only downfall was the net has to be paid for, though not expensive.

We stayed in the hotel for a month.
It is at a good location. Bugis Junction is just nearby for reasonably good price shopping. Even the Malls & Bugis MRT, Food court is around. Getting a cab, bus or MRT is easy.
Rooms are reasonably spacious, neat & clean. Staff is good & very helpful.
Breakfast is very basic but good.
Most importantly the “ Steam Boat” Restaurants are just below to enjoy the great Singaporean hot pot food.

The hotel location is the best asset of it, since it is very near to the suntec city mall, and a walking distance to the SMRT station in bugis and esplanande. Almost all of the tourism sight in Singapore is near the hotel.

The bedroom is small (we used the superior double room) and the bed is hard not quite comfortable, a better bed will be a nice improvement.

The bath room cleanliness really need to be improved, but it has a bathtub (quite nice touch for a 3 star hotel in SIngapore), and the hot water work just fine

The buffet breakfast is good, although if they can make a variation for each day will be better.

Overall in Singapore with that kind of location, a bath tub, and free american style buffet breakfast, this hotel can be a nice option :)

Room Tip: pick room with window

The location is good but the room I had was terrible and I upgraded at check-in because without knowing it I booked a room with no windows! They really did mean no windows as well...

Not sure where TripAdvisor get their room rates from but certainly not in line with what the hotel charge. It isn't as cheap as it sounds.

The hotel is tired and old... The A/C iny room didn't work and the bed was like sleeping on a plank of wood plus the TV didn't work... My upgraded room was incredibly small so maybe others were lucky.

I dont know where the picture came from at the front of the reviews of this hotel but it's of another location.

Stayed in this hotel for a month because of budget constrant. The Hotel is basic Hotel, with breakfast, & no frills. There is no potter service, no water bottles in the room. It is not a three star hotel. Very basic, small rooms, TV, with few channels, A/C, bathroom, the towels & soaps changed everyday. Breakfast is same very day. If you are budget traveller & want a hotel in the tourist area, then this hotel will do. Do not expect 3 or 4 star type of hotel.

After the disastrous Tune Hotel experience in LCCT, our 11 family members needed a good nights sleep, Parkview was a great relief. Although an expensive city Singapore on the whole is a great city to be in for more days, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Singapore. Our family found it extremely Tourist Friendly, be it attractions, Taxi drivers, smiling & helpful local people, good rules and an amazing infrastructure, Way to Go, Keep It Up, We are coming back.

Pros:
Location, Location, Location…….This wins the cake and cherry both for location itself, walk able distance to Bugis or Victoria MRT, Minimum Fare Taxi Ride to Flyer & Flyer, extend it further for few more dollars to Sentosa, in case on a Budget most of the Buses from tourist attractions stops and run from a bus stop exactly opposite to Park View hotel. Seven–Eleven very close, Many Malls very close, Bugis street very close for road side shopping, Great road side eateries just in the next lane, Good but same free breakfast every day. They allowed early check-in and provided taxi assistance for airport drop which was a nice touch. Check-in staff was good too.

Cons:
Old and tired rooms, broken and unclean bath tub, no water bottles were provided in the room and we were asked to drink water from bathroom tap (biggest disappointment at this hotel as the water may be potable but didn’t taste good, we had to buy water from 7/11 2 SGD$ for 500ml as this hotel is in a premium location, same is unacceptable for a hotel whose charging 130USD$ per room per night, this is the only reason why we will not return to this hotel again). There are other hotels around this vicinity too we will check them instead on our next visit.
