Hotel Royal Singapore
Ranked #269 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 25 January 2012

Location is great and accessible to MRT- however, rooms are desperately looking for a refurbishment- so boring and tired and housekeeping very poor - run down furniture, uncomfortabe bed, breakfast buffet so primitive and 1950;s food being served. For a hotel in Singapore, you can do much better- provided early check in which was great

We stayed for 2 nights in December. Hotel is centrally located near 2 shopping centres, bus stops and train station. For the location, this hotel is unfortunately, not up to standard. Hotel rooms are spacious but in bad need of refurbishment. Upon check-in, we found that the room had not been cleaned - there were bits of dried noodles all over the floor, and a room service tray with used cutlery/crockery outside, which stayed there the whole afternoon/night long. I called reception to ask that the room be vacummed, was told "OK", but no one bothered coming to clean up at all! Entrance of hotel has a steep, narrow ramp right in the middle of the stair area, with no clear sign near the ramp to warn people of it. We saw 2 hotel staff struggling to push/pull a load of luggage up the ramp (really bad OH&S issue here).

My good pair of tweezers mysteriously vanished after housekeeping cleaned up, after our 1st nights stay, and a complaint made to reception brought a luke warm "i'll check with housekeeping" from the obviously uninterested staff whom I spoke to!

Will not stay at this hotel again.

My family and I stayed here for 12 nights and found it to be more than adequate. The room size was good and it was clean and fresh smelling. The service from the staff was very good and the front office staff in particular were extremely helpful and informative especially when we pestered them for information we could have found with better online research!

Location wise it's pretty good too. It's only 10 minutes walk from Novena Shopping Centre and MRT and about 15 minutes walk from the Newton Hawker Centre.

A standard quality good hotel located in a pleasant street a short walk (in the heat) to Novena MRT Station and shopping centre. Stayed there on a Singapore Airlines stopover package. Bus stop at hotel entrance, but could not get information about fares and destinations from reception. Good rooms and breakfast acceptable. Late check out was readily given at no extra cost.

This hotel is well placed, near newton and septima station, and most important, near a really touristic and nice area that is the newton hawker centre (food) and near orchad road.

The hotel doesn't have much to highlight, quite normal, with big beds, big bedrooms, a bit old fashion and normal stuff (although sometimes we couldn't understand each other).

The breakfast is ok, although the staff there is quite nice though....

The most annoying thing of the hotel is the club downstaris that seems a typical singaporean 'karaoke' where business mans meet some 'local' chicks... although that's mainly the impresion that I received.

Well communicated and cheap fares by cab from the centre.

Recommended if you haven't got a family and don't plan to spend much time on it.
