Dorsett Singapore4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Rooms little small but standard given Singapore real estate. Very clean and comfortable. Subway is literally below hotel but never utilized as was there on biz and wearing suits and thus taking taxis. Main thing would change is to upgrade breakfast which could be better. For breakfast, more like an upgraded free continental breakfast but they charge you and relatively expensive (coffee not great, and food very average). We went next door to Roosevelt's and Lokal for better coffee and breakfast, with the Lokal being best but more of a brunch place and not open early.
Hotel in Singapore is notoriously expensive. In that regard, Dorsett is really good value for money. While it is not cheap by international standard, the comfort and standard of the room and its service are above average. Apart from these reasons, I also recommend this hotel given its location is close to the Outram MRT station.
My first impression was bad the moment I walked in and the reception staff tried to give me a twin bed when my reservation clearly said it was a King Sized bed... not a bed type request. The room was sold as a 'City View KING Bed with free Wi-Fi by their listing online. Then the reception asked if I want to upgrade for a king bed... something I had already paid for. When I stood my ground, and insisted they give me a king sized bed, they then relented and gave me the king sized bed. The room was rather small, but okay for 2 days.The beds are comfortable. The TV is a HD LCD with sufficient channels. I could not figure out why they have a desk with a lamp without any accessible power outlets for your laptop. The bathroom in my room had black mold around the sink under the caulk. Even though this is a new hotel, I can see some of it is already falling apart -- LED lights broken in the pool, chaise lounger broken, grout in bathrooms redone with a quick caulk job. They don't replenish your soap/shampoo daily. The area is nice with many restaurants nearby.
