Subway Station Contruction Noise

The hotel itself worked out well for us except for the subway station construction noise. We were aware of the construction when making the reservation. However, we did not expect this to be a 24x7 affair. Apparently, construction activities were supposed to stop at 10pm on weekdays and not allowed on Sunday. During my stay, construction work went on during daytime on Sunday. I was woken up by drilling noise at 3am on Monday. Complaining to hotel staff is useless when the best they can do is to file a report. They admitted that they had filed numerous reports over past few months. The neighboring luxury hotel does not put guests in rooms facing the construction site. Unfortunately my room faces the construction site and the hotel does not have a similar room on the other side. I called the government authority at NEA on Monday but nothing happened. So, at 11pm I went to talk to the supervisor at the construction site to ask them to stop. Surprisingly, they complied. But I had to do it again the next evening. I would have moved to a different hotel had they not stopped the construction activities at night.

Great base for Business Trip or holiday

The staff here are fantastic and couldn't be more helpful. There was an adequate choice of breakfast items at the buffet. The rooms were clean and bright. The kitchen was well kitted out. The bed was comfortable. The swimming pool was lovely and the provision of towels was brilliant. Would definately stay again. Thank you for a great stay!

If you get a chance to get the MRT to Harbour Front and the cable car to Sentosa, do it! The views were amazing.

excellent place to stay with family.

Very hard to find a hotel in Asia that will take more than 2 guest in a room. In this hotel we had 2 bedrooms for the same price as a regular hotel room.
