    Ruined by renovations

    Would not recommend Wed, Jul 8, 2015
    We stayed at the Swisshotel for 3 nights for a wedding so a very quick fly by trip from Europe. We arrived Thurs night and had quite a late night with friends and then was awoken by extremely loud drilling and construction work at 9am on Friday morning!! Whilst they advised at check in, there would be construction on a lower floor, I did not think it would be that loud. The hotel staff provided some earplugs after calling them but they did nothing to block the noise. I had to go down to reception to complain and they provided a room which was on the executive floor on level 12. My annoyance is why they did not offer this room to me when I checked in and only after complaining??? I was not made aware at the time of booking there would be construction so could not make an informed choice. It appears hotel management were hoping guests would be out of their rooms before 9am. The noise was extremely loud and you could not comfortably stay in your room beyond that time. Frustratingly, I had already unpacked on Thursday night and not wanting someone to touch my clothes and belongings, I had to repack all my belongings and move the suitcase up to level 12. The room was smaller than the initial room and the construction could still be slightly heard - the hotel staff suggested i turn on the TV to drown it out!! Fairly absurd suggestion! Apart from that, the hotel is close to Clarke Quay and across from a shopping centre which is not worth visiting. The hotel staff also suggested we go to some hawker centre nearby when we wanted to go to Maxwell. It seemed like the hotel staff had a vested interest in this other centre as he tried to convince us it Maxwell would be very busy however when we arrive, it was anything but. Overall, the level of service is adequate to poor and I would suggest staying at a different hotel if quality service is what you are after. Also there are better placed locations if you want drinks, food and ease of getting taxis.

    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

    Would recommend Sun, Oct 19, 2014
    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.

    Time saver

    Evening and tourist attractions are just a stone-throw away and even for most business locations, walking is possible.

    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!
