Peninsula Excelsior Hotel
Ranked #124 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is an old hotel in the neighbourhood of old shopping centres. We stayed in this hotel since we could not find any other hotels during one of the major exhibitions in Marina Bay Sands and we're told that this hotel was in the proximity of MBS. With the only exception of the newly-renovated room where we stayed, the rest of the hotel is average or if its not less-than-average, especially the poorly-served breakfast.

We only had one night at this hotel prior to flying home. However, we will certainly bear it in mind if we return to Singapore. Having taken the MRT ftom Woodlands, we were delighted to locate the hotel within 150 yards of the City Hall station. It is close to the colonial area of Singapore and convenient for several malls. Our room was not huge but it was adequate and very well presented. We stayed in the Peninsula part of the hotel and had good city views, particularly at night. We chose not to eat there but visited a local mall for cheap evening food and a McDonalds breakfast the following day. After the short walk from hotel to the MRT station, we were able to get to the airport in 40 minutes for under $5 total.

There wasn't anything remarkable to say about this hotel. It was average - average accommodations, average customer service, not very good wifi, and the staff really weren't that accommodating. Bedding was clean and average on a comfort level. I would only stay here again if the price was right and I was just swinging through Sing on another business trip. Good location near city hall.

Recently stayed at the Peninsula (actually stayed at in the Excelsior Tower) after having found a price deal at this hotel. As hotels in Singapore are very expensive, it is always difficult to find value for money but it this case, I found it. The room was good, with a resonable amount of space. Internet access was reliable and reasonably fast and was complimentary - always a good point. Breakfast was very nice. Certainly would stay here again, dependent on the price that they are offering.

Upon arrival it was difficult to distinguish where the reception was.The lower level is devoted to concierge and baggage handlers.When asked they referred me to level one.From lift to reception was a struggle,and people at reception proved hard to understand.Also booking was haphazard again with language interpretation being the problem.It was hard to follow payment requirements,and personal questions took time to detail.Once key system sorted went to room.Windows overlooked air conditioning fan systems which were noisy.Also windows were covered with dust and dirt making them hard to see out of.Bathroom was clean with complete toiletries,and good supply of towels.Sheets on bed were clean,and changed daily.Minibar well stocked but expensive.

Room Tip: Rooms on west side are quieter.

We stayed in the Penisula Excelsior for the onward and return trip to Australia, as part of the Singapore Stopover package. Hotel is located in the middle of a busy district; central to MRT subway, and 2 shopping centres. Also hotel is a short way to Clarke's Key, Chinatown district and Orchard Rd.
Also there are many local eateries, where one can try out local cuisines.
Rooms are average, second room was a bit small in comparison to other stopover hotels.
Hotel staff esp. concierge service were helpful & friendly. If you were to check in without the stopover package, suggest you try another hotel, as prices may be more than the former.

Room Tip: Try to get an upper floor room overlooking the river.

The hotel is near to MRT station ( City Hall station ) and also bus stop. It is also located near a shopping mall and walking distance to Merlion Park. Meanwhile Marina Bays is just a few stations from the City Hall station.

The hotel lobby is cosy and well-decorated. It also have a modern design swimming pool.
The hotel room interior is nice, clean and spacious. Highly recommended hotel to stay in Singapore.
