“Early arrival but able to swim”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

When choosing this hotel, you will be at walking distance from all the main sights in Singapore, but it's quite a good walk to see all the different cultures that live there.
We arrived really early - around 7am - because our flight arrived this early. We were whacked by a trip that took over 20 hours and wanted to freshen up and rest a little. The room wouldn't be ready before 2pm, so they let us use the showers in the basement swimming pool, and of course we also took a plunge in the pool.
Breakfast was a bit odd for us, but we were just starting to experience Asian things, but we're eager to tast new things.
A very good choice of hotel for your Singapore layover.

First of all I notice that some literature says this hotel is 500m from the nearest MRT (City Hall), it's actually a lot closer than that, you just cross the road and you're there.
The location couldn't be better it's close to everything and Singapore's taxis and MRT are so cheap anyway.
The staff here are super friendly and really helpful, the rooms are small but very nicely presented and have lots of nice touches like free internet, free bottles of water, good magazines etc.
The only downside is the breakfast, it's very basic and the area it's served in needs a serious makeover! But there's so many food places nearby it seems a waste to be eating in the hotel anyway.
Great place, will definitely return.

The staff were super friendly, the room was spacious with a view of the cricket field and the Marina Bay sands. The location is just perfect right opposite the City Hall SRT station and the raffles mall. Walkable distance to Clarke Quay. Breakfast was aplenty and was by the poolside. The room misses a bath tub (bizzare for such a residence). I will definitely stay here again. On a sidenote, I did not have a Euro plug to Singapore electrical socket adapter. The hotel staff provided me with a couple of them. Never had this experience before even in top 5 star hotels.

Great hotel across the road from the mrt and a big shopping centre. Rooms are clean and modern, breakfast is very average but nothing expected in that. The price you pay for the room and location outways everything else, also free pick ups to universal and night safari at the hotel across

We stayed here last October for 5 nights. Wonderfull hotel with huge rooms, great facilities, great service and nice staff. Will stay here again when we go back to Singapore next year.
Good location and if you like your sports facilities this is the place to stay.
Not a large hotel but staying in a smaller hotel can mean a more personal experience.
