OK for the price

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 3, 2007

Parkroyal on Beach Road is a business class hotel, located almost in the Arab quarter. The lobby is very stylish, but unfortunately this does not fully extend to the rooms.
We had asked for a non-smoking double, but on arrival we were shown to a smoking twin. The room stank of smoke so bad that I immediately told the porter that this is not what we asked for and we will not stay in this room. He was understanding and called to reseption to see if other rooms were available. There was one smoking double so we agreed to go check it out and since it didn't stink of smoke (allthough had a funny smell) we agreed to take the room. I must say that the hotel handled this very well as the next evening we received a call that a non-smoking double was be available. But as we had already unpacked, we decided to stay in our current room.

The room was OK what comes to amenities and was very spacious. There was an ironing board, a minibar, a hair dryer, nice toiletries etc. But it was no where near perfect and here is why:
- bathroom sink didn't let water out and water stayed in the sink. We asked this to be taken care of but after a couple of hours the same problem was back
- I hate the planked and sheet thing. I mean that kind where you have a woollen planket over a sheet. Yuk!
- What ever you do, DO NOT look up when in shower. On the ceiling where the air-condition is, there was this horrible layer of mold and there was so much of it that it looked hazardous to the health. DISGUSTING! The bedroom air-con had similar problems but not as bad.
- we wanted to go on the SIA hop-on hop-off tour and asked the concierge to show us the nearest tour stop. He directed us to a wrong bus stop (no, we didn't mess this up ourselves) and we lost an hour of valuable sighseeing time because of this.

We had an evening flight on departure and the hotel let us use the showers in the fourth floor. This was convenient since there were toiletries, hair dryers etc. This floor is also where the big pool, fittness centre and spa are located.

Unique Quality: Breakfast was nice and there was plenty of choise. I especially loved the fried noodless, the delicious waffels and the fresh fruit. I also used the laundry service and my laundry came back smelling lovely and nicely folded.

The location is OK, especially as the famous Arab street with its fabulous fabrics is just accross the road.

As an expat you might end up at Parkroyal the Plaza. The location is quite good in walking distance to Bugis MRT and Suntec City. Also you do have some restaurants nearby, including some local steamboat restaurants.

Unique Quality: Some things I didn't like about Parkroyal: The lizzards in my room, the small bugs in the kitchen, the hotel laundry (SGD 8 for a bad ironed shirt??), the iron in the room (which left nasty stains and has not been replaced after my intervention), missing newspaper (three times in a month), some staff that barely understood english, loooong waiting list for modem rental and the cost of laundry & dryer tokens (somewhat like 3 SGD).

Things I did like: Overall friendly staff, nice rooms, the location, the view (lake view!) and the cleaning (good job!).

Overall I stayed there for a month and was very happy to move into my own appartement and have my furniture again.

Not the best!

Stayed at this hotel for four nights in October 2006 on the recommendation of a friend. Unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations. Service upon check in was rushed and quite unfriendly and no information was offered as to what the hotel offered it's guests. Our room was quite rundown and looked like it needed an urgent facelift and to top it off our view was of a multi-storey carpark! Upon asking for a room change we were told that they full and no other rooms were available. We did travel at peak time in Singapore so this was not unexpected but my husband & I were thoroughly disappointed with the whole experience. Luckily our short break wasn't ruined as most of our time was spent out & about! The only thing I could recommend about the Plaza Parkroyal would be the swimming pool area. Large, very peaceful above the bustling noise of the streets and the staff up here very helpful and FRIENDLY!

Modern Singapore Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

This was booked as part of our Singapore Stopover that we booked with Singapore Airlines. We were very happy with the $50/night that we paid as part of the stopover rates. We were even happier when we got to the hotel and it was very nice and then we got upgraded for free.
This hotel was modern, very nice beds, ensuite was very clean and then we recieved a %50 discount in hotel's restaurant which we only used once. (We wanted to try as many different places as we could, not just eat at one)
I would recommend this hotel to anyone as it is a very comfortable place within walking distance of most attractions.

Unique Quality: There was a nice roof top pool and gym.

It is a modern hotel with Western toilets and Asian influences. The rooms are a decent size providing refrigerator and iron. They have a disco, spa, gym, and restaurant. The restaurant is expensive and the food is not all that good. It is best to go across the street and pay a lot less for better tasting food. The area is very safe, next door there is a drug store across the street are shops. There is a pedestrian bridge that can take you across the street safely because the street is wide. Several different buses stop in front of the hotel. Across is like a little arabia on one side and india on the other. About 3 blocks over is the train and bugis junction where there is a lot of bargains. Behind the hotel 3 blocks the other way is suntec city.

Best Rooftop Pool in Singapore!

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 25, 2004

I stayed at the Plaza Parkroyal for four nights in March, 2004. I also went there for work three years previously. I really liked this hotel because the facilities and appearance were great but overall it was quite affordable. It seemed like it should cost more than it did.

The only bad point was the proximity of the hotel to Orchard Road. If shopping there is a priority for you, then having to get a taxi each time could become a drag.

Unique Quality: The rooftop pool in the Plaza Parkroyal is the best thing about this hotel. If you are planning to relax and unwind and you normally use the pool facilities when you are staying at a hotel, you won`t be disappointed. the roof itself is ringed by greenery, over which you can see nearby parts of the city. Magic stuff!

Directions: Located on Beach Road at the end of Arab Street. Bugis is the nearest MRT station.
