    Great location

    by

    Stayed for 3 days on way back from Myanmar. Great location - we walked to Arab Town, Orchard Road, Raffles, Marina Sands but Bras Brasar station at door. Lap pool on level 4 is a welcome asset.

    The rooms are modern, clean and well appointed. We were on the side so no noise, and there is double glazing. Large TV with cable inc CNN. Kettle and fridge so we had tea and bought yoghurt rather than pay for hotel breakfast. Hotel staff very pleasant, left luggage at midday check out and collected later.

    Only complaint is the "gym" consists of a treadmill, bike and x country machine, jammed into a small room with no outlook. The machines face the wall - if they put them facing the window, might be a bit better. So didn't use. Also wifi is charged.

    Will return

Royal & Queens

by Cathy&Gary about Royal & Queens

We booked a 5 night stopover through the Singapore airlines site and stayed at the Royal & Queens, the 5 nights cost us just over $600 and with all the bonuses thrown in it was definitely worth it.

We had free transfers, 50% off meals at the hotel, free entry to Jurong Bird Park plus loads of other freebies we did not use.

The hotel is in a great location and we were upgraded to a deluxe room with very comfortable beds in the renovated wing on the 16th floor.

The TV was huge with a DVD player; there was an iron and ironing board, a safe big enough to hold our laptop and great views.

This hotel use to be the rear tower of the adjoining Allson hotel and the hotels are still connected on the 1st floor, so you can also exit through the Allson.

 Royal @ Queens is only a 5 minute walk to Bugis Street, 3 min walk to Chijmes, 5 min walk to Raffles Hotel and 15 min walk to Douby Ghout mrt or the top of Orchard Rd.

On our second day we walked to Little India and this took us about 20 minutes.

The hotel's restaurant Queen's Brasserie is on Level 1, the buffet breakfast was included free but was nothing special.

There is also a small swimming pool.  

The location of Royal @ Queen's is excellent, the price was good, there are restaurants, food courts and MRT stations close by so we would stay here again.

Have you been to any of these hotels recently? Looking for comments/ photos.

by LAOWAI

Hi there:

We are a large group going to Singapore for 3 days and I am looking at some relatively 'cheap' three star options in the center. And one possible 4-star. Would appreciate any recent information / photos you might have of these three- or any other suggestions you might have:

Thanks!

HI!

First & foremost, I have not stayed in any of the 3 hotels you mentioned.

Location-wise, all 3 hotels aren't half bad.
Peninsula-Excelsior is an old hotel but its location in the centre of the city means an easy base to get around Singapore since City Hall MRT is just a less than 5 minutes walk away.

Golden Landmark is next to Arab Street and is again, another old hotel. The Hotel Royal @ Queens is tucked away along a quiet street and is very near the Singapore Arts Museum. Bugis MRT is the nearest subway station for both....and it's just minutes of walk away.

The best of the 3 would be Peninsula Excelsior. Good location with lots of shopping nearby ie Funan IT Mall , 5 min from City Hall MRT. Small and dull lobby, old exterior.

Hotel Royal & Golden Landmark are also old and are far from the main shopping district.

Where to stay

by Thorkenya

Visiting Singapore for the 1st time. We will be there for 2 nights.

Need recommendations from the following :
1. Allson
2. Copthorne Orchid
3. Furama Riverfront
4. Hotel Royal
5. Peninsular Excelsior
6. Hotel royal @ Queens

we would like to experience the city and its shopping and then take in as much of night life as possible on the river front.

Thanks,

Re: Where to stay

by imstress

Peninsular Exelsior has the best location.

Walking distance to Esplanade, City Link Shopping Mall, CHIJMES, Clarke Quay, Boat Quay.

Re: Where to stay

by DarkRay

Of those you have listed, Peninsula Excelsior definitely has the best location, as imstress had mentioned, since it is within a 10 minutes walk from City Hall MRT Interchange. It is also within reasonable walking distance to Boat Quay and Clarke Quay, the main areas for night life on the river front in Singapore.

My recommendation though is Allson, which is somewhat nearby. It is straddled between City Hall MRT Interchange (15-20 minutes walk away) and Bugis MRT Station (10-15 minutes walk away).

The main reason is that you lose only a little in location convenience (in terms of being centrally located), but you gain a nicer room at possibly a lower price. While both hotels have been refurbished this decade, it was a strictly exterior and lounge only affair at Peninsula Excelsior. I used to recommend visitors to request for rooms in the Peninsula Wing and avoid those in the Excelsior Wing, but the state of the rooms in Peninsula Wing has become a little too musty for comfort, and I hate that the smell of stale tobacco seemed to always linger around in their entire compound, except for their new piano lounge.

For Allson, the rooms are still old, but much better maintained in my opinion. You gain some convenience as well as there is a 7-Eleven right next to the hotel and an excellent open-air foodcourt on the other side, serving some very good and affordable local fare.

Bugis Junction, one of the more interesting (in terms of tenant mix and architecture layout) malls in Singapore is also only a 5-7 minutes walk away, as well as Bugis Village, the largest street shopping destination in Singapore.

Just my 2 cents.... :-)

Re: Where to stay

Thanks to both of you.

What's your opinion of Furama Riverfront ?

Re: Where to stay

by DarkRay

Furama Riverfront, previously known as Novotel Apollo, is quite good and has pretty nice and new looking rooms - probably the newest and best maintained of the bunch you had mentioned.

But I do not like its inconvenient location at all - it's not close to anything at all despite it being still in the city. They do provide a courtesy shuttle to Orchard and Chinatown, but its frequency is not that great. All the hotels in the Havelock area that Furama Riverfront resides in typically cater to package tourist.

Just my 2 cents.... :-)

Travel Tips for Singapore

Statues depicting the old way of life

by phil_uk_net

I think it is sad that as Singapore has been developed the old buildings have been torn down. I can understand that the living conditions were not acceptable in the modern world but it is still sad.

These statues are great though, showing the old way of life. In my opinion, they are works of art that are very pleasing to the eye - to my eye, anyway.

Public Housing

by trees100ft

Singapore is a compact city where the majority of the people live in good quality public housing.

In the 1960s, the newly formed Housing Development Board (affectionately known by its acronym HDB by Singaporeans) started its building program. The flats that you see in this photo were built in 1965 just after the great fire in Bukit Ho Swee. As these flats are old, they could have easily fallen into disrepair and evolved into slums, but the local authorities began a major refurbishment in 1990s to upgrade these old flats. Now they are a much sought after accommodation as many of the apartments are located close to the city centre.

Sizes of the HDB flats range from 600 sq ft to over 1500 sq ft. The smaller ones have only 1 or 2 bedrooms. Singaporeans are house-proud people. Many families - young and old -spend tens of thousands of dollars to renovate and furnish their homes. Viewing showhouses, and shopping for antiques and furniture is a favourite weekend past-time.

Depending on size and location, HDB flats can cost from SGD 150k to close to 500k, with the majority in the 250k range.

The older housing estates are found in Queenstown, Toa Payoh, Ang Mo Kio while the newer ones are found in Bishan, Yishun, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Sembawang, Sengkang and Punggol.

You can always change money easily here

by yukisanto

Unlike some countries, Singapore has alot of money changing facilities and you can change foreign currency easily. No need for passport or filling in a form. Almost every shopping mall will have a "money changer", usually manned by an Indian man.

Rates differ slightly. Lower rates at banks and better rates at the money changers. In Orchard Road, Lucky Plaza has the most number of money changers; you can choose to compare rates before you change your currency. But if you're in orchard, I personally like to change money with the money changer at Takashimya, Basement 2. He gives pretty good rates.

Peace

by anuroop_s_raj

It was a totally different experience for me.I went there on a weekday and there was very few people around on the island.Take a map of the island and then rent a bike.The whole island is yours for exploration.Do pack your liquids as you wont find any shops other tha ones at ferry point.You will find the less popular picnic spots totally deserted.
