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.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

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.

Hotel Royal Singapore

Good location and staff was really friendly and helpful. We were located near Orchard Road and Novena Square, and was walking distance to Newton Food Centre! The only thing that I didn't like and was shocked to find was that our bathroom was dirty. There was hair on the floor and the tub was not clean.

Go to Newton Food Centre! It's open until 3 AM. Great food and 80 stalls to choose from. Also recommend Clarke Quay for great nightlife and dining. Young, lively crowd there and beautiful area.

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

Good value family holiday location

The hotel is looking a little tired and in need of refurbishment, whilst there was no major fault, the elevators worked, plumbing was okay, television was fine it just had an old feel about everything. Previous correspondents have commented on the reception, it was fine with booking in and out and attention to queries prompt and efficient, the breakfast buffet was good with a wide choice although the restaurant in the same room in the evening offered a limited quantity of below average food with very little western food, so visiting families with children take note. There is a good size outdoor pool which is a plus, although in the 4 days we were there, and the kids used the pool, I never saw it cleaned

Avoid dining in this hotel, the food quality is poor, take a right out of reception a short walk, 2 or 3 minutes takes you to the Novena shopping area with a good selection of decent restaurants

Not even close to the 4 star they claim

Check-in takes roughly an hour due to disorganization. If you don't print have a printout of your confirmation, they have no system to check your reservation. Thus you must pay to use the business center, where the computers are so painfully slow that it takes, seriously, upwards of a minute to load each page.Waiting times at check-in and check out are upwards of a half hour to an hour. Staff continuously running around, looking confused. Rooms have very cheap, basic furniture and bedding. Television only had 2 channels with actual good reception.Location is OK. Quick cab ride to Orchard Rd, but not a good walk if you use the rail system.Irish Pub on the third floor: Day 1 I walk in and the drunken owner has just been in fist fight. Day 3 I try again and, just as drunk, he is throwing chairs and picking fights again. Fun lad to chat with, until he goes off. So, I try the "Nightclub" on the upper level. About 30 beautiful, beautiful Asian girls dressed to impress all over the place. And about 20 old Asian guys. Hmmmmm. [*]Overall, probably the most overpriced hotel I have ever stayed at for the the quality.

See Orchard Towers, just for the experience. It's a good laugh. Clarke Quay is also good spot to visit, right on the river.
