Nice affordable hotel.
I was in Singapore for a combination of a business and a social visit. This hotel was at the right location for this purpose.
The location will not be the best for most Singapore visitors. It is not very near the city center, but if you enjoy local night life, I can surely recommend you to visit the East Coast area, which is at 5-10 minutes by taxi away from the hotel. Opposite of the hotel, there is a nice shopping mall with nice dinning facilities.
For travelers, it is also good, that the hotel is quite near the airport. This way it is a good hotel for passengers, who have to stay for a night in Singapore.
Unique Quality: Affordable for Singapore. It is clean and nice, one of the better Mercure hotels.
Directions: Opposite of Parkway Parade.
Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore
The GRAND MERCURE ROXY SINGAPORE as it is now known is one of the great secret gems in all of Singapore. My family has stayed at this hotel in May 2005 and again in Jan 2006 and both times we have enjoyed the stay tremendously. The staff are efficient but also very friendly, the service in all areas of the hotel are great.
The rooms are spacious and very clean. The facilities provided for the cost of the rooms is truly amazing. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who does not have to stay in the very centre of Singapore.
Unique Quality: The hotel has a shuttle bus that not only takes you free of charge to the airport on departure but on arrival you go to the Singapore tourist desk & they phone the hotel to come and collect you. The room rate included the best buffet breakfast you could imagine. All sorts of hot and cold foods. yummy...The hotel pool area is really well designed and there is a bar/ restaurant on that level too. The hotel has a spa & conference rooms too. All the staff are great and we were really impressed with the quick response to questions we emailed them. Just across the road is the Parkway Parade Shopping Centre a multi storyed shopping complex with everything you could need. So supermarkets , shops, food halls, takeaways etc.. are close by. Buses run regularly from the street in front of the hotel & the main street behind but we find it very easy to just hop in a taxi as its very cheap, and the drivers always act as tour guides....
Directions: Not too far from east coast parkway only 20 minutes from the airport.
