Peninsula Excelsior Hotel

Very good location for the river tourist areas - Clarke Quay, Raffles City and China Town. Rooms were fine - clean,not big - and ours had a nice view over Marina Bay. The lifts were a bit noisy at night as we were right beside them. The breakfast was $20 each which is over priced when there are so many alternatives nearby.

Room Tip: Opt for a higher floor to get views and avoid rooms near the lifts

Excellent location, rooms are spacious and the beds were wonderfully firm. Pity about those dreadful bath showers which are almost impossible to use with safety! Oh for a good Australian shower....We had breakfast with the locals just around the corner for about $5 per person, thereby avoiding the costly hotel breakfast spreads. Staff were very polite and totally cooperative. To our dismay the small fridge was not turned on when we arrived, thereby rendering it useless. Why supply an empty warm fridge to tired travellers? Apart from these small problems we enjoyed our 3 day stay.

Stayed there on Aug 8th on a transit stop over. On check in had to wait for more than 20 min to be able to check in. Staff are nice and Friendly. The girl who checked me in was polite and efficient. f you are looking for Shopping there is nothing much immediately around the hotel, but you can find some malls within few minutes walk. The "Location" of the hotel not great.

A tip: don't even try to go into the building exactly opposite the hotel entrance. It is DISGUSTING, Stinky.

I stayed in Peninsula Excelsior for two nights in late July. The hotel's location is ideally placed right smack in the middle of Singapore with bus stops and MRT stations placed within one block from the hotel. For the techy shoppers, Funan Digitalife Mall is just behind the hotel so shopping there is very very convenient.

Guests are able to ask for smoking or non-smoking rooms. In my case, I had requested for a non-smoking room of which they upgraded me to the top floor of the hotel - with the perfect view of Clarke Quay, Marina Bay, etc. Very generous of them in that sense.

If you are planning to enjoy the city and are particular about not being able to maximize the room as much, then you might be better off with other hotels a little farther off. However if you don't mind costs as much, this is the perfect hotel to stay in Singapore.

Efficient business hotel. Meals were very good, although expensive as might be expected from this property. Was updated through Amex booking and had a very well kept suite which was amply stocked with water which is a necessity. Used a small conference room in the business center, and had strong service from Emma, who is a fixture there. Front desk staff not as strong as the rest of the hotel, need a slight attitude adjustment ( a bit stiff and pretentious).

Room Tip: Higher rooms are quiet.

This is a very good hotel, reasonably priced, and in a great location. Ask for a room with a view of Marina Bay as the lights at night are great.
The staff are friendly and courteous, the only issue I had was that it can take a long time to get an elevator.

We stayed here on the recommendation of our travel agent. It is situated in a great part of town with easy access to everything and very close to an MRT station. E hotel is clean and comfortable and the service was very good. The only negative, and it is avery small one, our friends stayed on a lower floor in a different tower to us and they could hear the karaoke from the bar near reception which goes until 2am. To combat this ask to stay in the other tower!

I stupidly left a number of clothes in a drawer in the room when we left for Thailand. I contacted them and with very little effort on my part managed to get them sent to my home in Aus. This is the after sales service that shows the mark of a hotel that knows what good service means. I would stay here again and recommend it ti others.
