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!

Fantastic location & wonderful staff

Location is great, right on Clarke Quay & near Metro station &. Bus stops. Also shopping centre over road for breakfast etc. We were upgraded for free & the free Internet in our room was wonderful as our first Grandson had just been born! All the staff were extremely attentive ,helpful & friendly & couldn't do enough for you. As we had a late flight the use of all amenities & especially the shower s near the gym were most welcome. I would really recommend this hotel.

Great tourists location

hotel check in pretty slow as the receptionist does not seen to be well experienced . Depends where the rooms are located otherwise noises from the Clark quay area outside can be heard inside the room. Amenities in the room is satisfactory except there are no sets of large drawers to place personal items and only 1 bedside table for a king size bedroom.

Great rooms and location

The Swissotel Merchant Court is in a perfect location to just walk to the Singapore Harbor area, in fact, Taxis can't even get you any further past of where the hotel is located, which is right at the beginning of the pedestrian only area. The rooms are fairly large and luxurious. The hotel lobby needs a bit improvement to create a more cozy feeling. Overall, this hotel is not inexpensive, but offers a great value.

Loved the location of this hotel .. out the door and Clarke Quay was there and China Town and Marine Bay a short walk. Would have liked to been allowed to stay late in room as had a midnight flight but they did provide luggage storage and shower facilities if needed.

Great Location, Great service

The hotel location was ideal since it is located by the river and next to restaurants and late night actions. We were able to go out every night because of that.
