I was actually quite disappointed with the room and hotel. The room is very small and it is not exactly an ideal hotel if you want staycation or to bring kids to the hotel. The bathroom and toilet is extremely small not suitable for people with slightly bigger built. The only benefits of the the hotel which I must mentioned is free mini bar and close vicinity to VivoCity and Sentosa. Oh ya, the staffs are pretty friendly and helpful. Breakfast is average, we checked out early despite we had late check out on our package
This hotel is just ok, but there are some point of difference that worth trying for. The bed is ok, not hard and quite big. The room comes with a free mobile phone and wifi for us to use. And it has free flow of mini-bar, this adds on the experience to stay in and enjoy the room. However, due to business trip stay couldn't enjoy it. Basic ammenities available, but the gym treadmill need some maintenance. It has decent spread of breakfast and not too big of a restaurant. Cleanliness ok. That's much I get to explore about the hotel.
Decided to pamper oneself in a suite room for birthday treat as other rooms are small, Good for guests who wanted to shop at the opposite big Vivo City shopping mall or Universal Studio @ Sentosa. Well greeted and served by Angel Leong, Guest Relations Manager and the staff of Jia Ming, Eddie, Yunsu and Shafiqah. Not forgetting Quan Sheng (CK) who arranged a birthday cake. They were friendly and served with passion and smiles. The room has a good view and particularly like the round bath tub. Well equipped with Nespresso Coffee Machine and wide range of complimentary mini bar items. The hotel is easily accessible to public transport and a train station. Also nearby F & B outlets which serve local delights. A comfortable stay.
We arrived early the day before our cruise. Easy access from the airport on Singapore's efficient/fast metro--at most a five minute walk from the nearest station. Although it was well before noon, the front desk found a room that was ready for occupancy when we arrived. Our room was COMPACT, but very clean. The mini- bar was complimentary. Good WiFi. Entire staff was gracious. Easy walk next day to board (through 2 modern malls) Only regrets--should have arrived 2 days early--Singapore is an enchanting metropolis!
Very nice and clean room. Great location just opposite to vivo city & sentosa. Very close to MRT and convenient to go anywhere. Mini bar is complimentary. The room is a bit small compare to others. Everything is value to money.
I specifically booked this hotel as I wanted to visit Universal Studios and wanted to be close to the monorail to get to Sentosa Island. The hotel is in a great location for that. There is a bit of a damp smell in some of the public areas, but other than that the hotel was fine, modern and clean. The location is good, as the subway is in the shopping mall across the road, so it's easy to get around Singapore.
I booked 5 deluxe rooms to stay for my 10 friends because I know that the standard room is really small. When we checked in, out of 5 rooms, one is without window, just a plain wall. Luckily my friend manage to change the room with window. If there is a fire in the corridor, there no way to escape at all. I really do not understand how can they past the safety standard for a hotel.
My wife and I spent four nights at the Bay hotel and we found that it was Ideal for our purpose, it was less than 200 metres from the Vivo shopping mall which has a metro station just inside the entrance and a variety of eating options. We used the metro system to get about and found that most attractions were very close to the stations. As others have mentioned the glass dividers for the toilet and shower seemed rather odd at first but as you are sharing a room together you wouldn't be to bothered about it, we would happily stay there again. The free mobile phone with free internet and international calls was a bonus.
The hotel is indeed basic as other reviews have mentioned. The standard rooms are small. We were first given a really small room with no desk space. The sink was right beside the bed and partly blocked by the night table. When my husband requested for a room with a desk we were immediately moved to a slightly larger one which was comfortable enough for 2 people. However, if you are a larger sized individual (6ft, 200 lbs) it will be a tight fit for 2. This room has no separate room for a full bathroom. The shower and water closet are separate and the sink is in front or beside the bed. No closet, just a small open cabinet to hang your clothes. Comfortable bed and pillows. Best part, all items in the mini bar are free and replenished daily. The hotel is very clean. The pool is a small lap pool, about 20m in length. The gym is tiny but complete. They also have a mobile phone with mobile data that you can bring around with you. It is located right in front of a mall called Vivo City where you can catch a train to Sentosa. I walked to Sentosa. It is less than a kilometer and is a nice place to walk. Well maintained. The train stations are nearby and it is very easy to get a cab in the area.
Hotel is very neat and contemporary . Reception staff are excellent, very welcoming, friendly and professional. Breakfast is good. Hotel is in the harbour area however there is a large mall across the road and local food available near hotel. Taxis always available and inexpensive to get to the city.
