Decent hotel near the MRT and Orchard Rd. shopping area

Hotel was nice and is located an easy 5 minute walk from the Novena MRT station. There are some restaurants and a small food court right here if you need something at night. The only downside was the air con in one of the 3 rooms was a little inefficient. Otherwise, it was fine.

Instead of walking to the closest train station (Novena), jump on any bus from right outside the hotel and get off at the Newton MRT station. You won't need to walk in the heat or with baggage.

Not good at all

The hotel is old and is not in a good maintenance. The air condition didn't work and the bathroom smell bad. For the price I think is a very bad choice.

Don't use it for business

My primary complaint with this hotel was that their internet service stinks. You have to go down to the cashier to buy a card ($26 per day), but there's no warning if the card runs out. My important Skype call dropped out mid call. I called the desk, and they told me I had to go downstairs to buy a new card. But even when you connect, the the connection speed is slow and intermittent. I found it was easier and quicker to sit in the lobby of the Marriott Hotel and use their free internet than to use the Royal's paid-for connection. But that wasn't all. When I complained to the deputy manager, he got all defensive, and kept trying to evade the point. On top of that, the air con doesn't work properly, the wash basin only delivered cold water, and the TV volume couldn't be adjusted. I will never stay at that joint again.

If you need an internet wi-fi connection, go to the Marriott lobby. Buy a coffee, sit back and relax and work away.

OK BUT...

We booked the hotel because of the reasonable price in Singapore,a vey expensive city. We got what we paid for. It could be much better if it wanted to, but it seems that management is not watching.For example we had one of the best room in the hotel on the 16th floor ,just renoveted a few months ago,modern in good taste,new furnitures,bathroom etc... very nice. BUT: there is already mold in the bathroom around the tiles and the tub because it is not cleaned properly.management should be on top of this. Also, the windows are bolted shut so the air is stale in the room,unpleasant. Too bad it could be a nice hotel

poor management

room is always duty. expensive wifi. only ask the room face the main road, otherwise, you will get no signal at all. basically, the hotel is no management at all. if you lost something in that hotel, do not even think about to get it found. MUST check your bill while you check out, especially, your phone bill.

poor management

we stay in this for 6 nights, not one day the floor is clean, under the chair, desk,is always full of dust. do not ask for the room face the back, you will have no wifi at all. only 1F has the full signal. only request the room face the main road. but when I finally get to change the room, I left my facile cleansing in the room, but the person who cleaned my room, did not bring the cleansing to the front desk, (even though they should know that I still stay in the hotel). careful with your bill. someone make the local calls from my room. therefore, while I check out, they show on my bill.
