Great location

The hotel is situated right behind Clarke Quey, making access to night life extremely convenient. It's also in walking distance to Chinatown and City Center. Cannot complain about the location. The staff, especially those at the front desk, could have been a little more friendly.

Great location, amenities, and a room to be and use

Was visiting on business for a fortnight and looking for a room which would be comfortable enough to spend some time, relax, or get some work done. The hotel provided all this and with the amenities, comfort of the bed, convenient desk, internet and daily newspapers and selection of magazines, I would always consider this Swissotel again.

Not the fanciest of 5 star hotels, but can't beat the location right in Clarke Quay. No complaints.

Great place to stay!

Hotel was located in an excellant area. Across the street from a mall and with lots of resturants in the area. Several means of transportation almost at our door step, including river taxis. Within walking distance to Chinatown and more shopping areas. The hotel was lovely and the staff lived up to what one would expect from a five star hotel. Highly recommend the Swiss Merchant. You won't be disappointed!

Terrific hotel in a prime location. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Swissotel Merchant Court, Singapore. The hotel is beautifully designed, with colonial Singapore decor in the public areas and modern decor in the rooms. The reception desk staff, bellmen and concierges were very helpful and professional. The hotel seems very well run and managed. It would be nice if the computers in the business center were free, as in many US hotels. The hotel has a perfect location, across from a mall with a MRT station, and next to Clarke Quay, which has many cafes, restaurants and the iconic bumboat rides. In the mall is a great little restaurant named Swissmade, which serves excellent breakfasts, at a reasonable cost. The beautiful, ultra modern, air conditioned MRT station allowed us to easily access a number of Singapore sights. The only negatives were a limited selection of western food on the hotel's dining room dinner menu and waiting a long time for hot water in the 9th floor bathroom sink. The shower quickly warmed up, however. We highly recommend this hotel!
