Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is in a very nice area, three minutes away from the bar and restaurant street in the Clarke Quay area. It takes 5 minutes to get to Marina Bay by taxi from the hotel. Chinatown is also right around the corner. The bedrooms are very clean, as well as the bathroom. The baths are quite small, but enough if you are just spending a couple of days in Singapore. The swimming pool is the best of the hotel! Big, clean, and you can take some really cool pictures in it :) The rooftop has also very nice views but it would be nice if they also had a bar upstairs to have a drink in the evening. The breakfast was the biggest downside to this hotel during our stay: queues to get a plate or mugs (they didn’t have enough of them) and also to get some food. They had only one type of cheese (one of the days they had none) and no ham at all. Not a breakfast to look forward to.

It is a nice hotel, the room was a bit small, there was hardly any where to hang clothes. The breakfast was good plenty of choice it may not have been the best choices, but ok. We arrived early morning, for a small fee we were allowed in our room, plus we could have breakfast. When it rained which was often they gave out umbrellas if you asked. The hotel is situated right on Clarke Quay and at night there is a multitude of restaurants to close from.

The Holiday Inn Express in Clarke Quay is very centrally located in Singapore, only about a 10 minute walk from Chinatown. The hotel is very modern and offers a free buffet breakfast every morning which is quite extensive! The hotel has DIY laundry on the second floor, and a rooftop infinity pool and gym. Rooms are small but very efficient and well appointed. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is located near a historic Chinese temple and two metro stations (Fort Canning and Clarke Quay), so it is very easy to get around. The rooftop also gives a wonderful view of the downtown area and is relatively quiet. The breakfast was also excellent with different items served daily. Finally, the staff was very friendly and quite helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Good location. China town is in the walking distance. Clarke Quay strip is in 5 min walk. You need to uber or MRT to Orchard or Marina Bay Sands. The room and bathroom are very tiny, so you probably don't want to plan to stay in your room. The pool on the roof deck was pretty good. Less crowd and cleaner than Marina Bay Sands! The staff was very friendly. When I stayed at this hotel, everyday the a large group of tourists come from India. I guess it is a part of the tour schedule. They seemed to have no manner, so every breakfast was chaotic.

I were stay here for holiday getaway on 22 Dec 2017 for 5nights. Upon c/in i got the warmest greetings from Patricia as front office staff. Check-in process was very quick and patricia was very friendly. She also assign my room in the best room located on 6th floor All staff here has true hospitality in their's self especially Pham Kim Ngan (Kim) as room maid on 6th floor. During my stay Kim was very helpful and very respect to each guest who met her. She do her job as room maid with sincere heart and she always give her warmest smile to every guest. This hotel located at Clark Quay which is one of good tourism area in SG. And so close to chinatown by walking distance. Public transportation also very easy to get, MRT, Bus, Taxi all here. Last but not least this hotel has beautiful infinity pool w/ great view ❤️

Great modern hotel in good location with fantastic service & engaging staff. Breakfast adequate without being exceptional, roof top pool beautiful, but flooring around the pool very slippery. The only issue with this hotel is the tiny rooms & the fact they charge your credit card $150 SGD per room to cover incidentals regardless of the fact the total accommodation costs were paid in full two months in advance. It is a struggle to open two large suitcases in the room & move around easily, which is an inconvenience. Not a problem for the solo traveller or if only using one large suitcase.

Great location near Clarke Quay and Roberts Quay. Rooms are small but very comfortable with all the amenities needed for a short break. Great pool area on roof with small gym. Good selection of breakfast with great coffee. Good value for money

The worst of the experience, is that rooms are TINY!!! Confortable enough for someone traveling solo and with all the essentials well taken care of. The mini bar fridge was empty, on, but empty. Staff is outstanding. The complimentary breakfast is really good, both on choice and on quantity. A lot better than most Hotels that will charge you for less quality. The bar is well stocked and prices are reasonable for local standards. The location of the hotel is convenient for both tourism and business. Not on top of the action, but near enough. I think I made the right choice for a 5 days tourist visit to Singapore and would recommend it.

Stayed here for 3 nights. Staff was extremely helpful. The breakfast was great. Hotel is situated close to Clarke Quay where you can find a lot of bars, clubs and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.
