wonderful hotel

Hotel is in a very good location on the Sigapore River close to Cinatown and the resturants and bars along the river. Also located next to Clark Quay MTR station (underground) which allows quick transportation to anywhere in Singapore. Rooms are clean and light after recent refurshment with all facililities you would expect from a 5 star hotel. The staff where friendly helpful and courteous. Overall 5 stars.

Great location!

Very close to vibrant Clarke Quay and numerous eateries and bars. Currently under major renovation work, which can be noisy during the day. Excellent staff. Walking distance to major shopping, etc. Would stay again once reno finished.

Great location

Loved the location of the hotel that is why we chose it for our return to Singapore but the room on the 10th floor was really old and dingy and we really did'nt like the bathroom, we know some rooms had been refurbished, we had paid for a balcony and was told the refurbished ones had all gone so if we wanted a balcony that was the only one. As we were there for just 3 nights we accepted but when we were leaving I expressed how disappointed I was and was told I should have said as we could have had a refurbished one, I could'nt believe it, we was given a voucher for a discount for a return but it only last for a year so don't think we will return in that time would have rather had some sort of refund. Disappointing.

Comfortable stay with prompt service

Located conveniently in the central location, our stay was a comfortable one with a clean room and fantastic service staff. Room requests were attended to by friendly operator and items were sent to the room very promptly and almost always by the same person so it felt as though we had a personal butler. Will definitely be back at the hotel!

Good location and friendly staff

We've stayed here a few times as a stopover for Australia. The location is excellent, just by the quayside. Chinatown is just down the road and Fort Canning Park a short walk away.

Happy returning customer

This is our third stay at this hotel and for the location and value for money wouldn't stay anywhere else. Its right on Clarke Quay MRT station, walking distance to Boat Quay ( restaurants) and Chinatown( hawker food centre) and market, no need to go all the way to Orchard Rd and lots cheaper! The hotel staff we encountered were always happy and friendly and whilst the deco is a bit dated now , they do provide a Nespresso coffee machine which is a great addition .
