Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stopped for 3 nights and chose the hotel due to being centrally located between China Town and Clarkes Quay, both a short walk from the hotel. The double room was modern, spacious, well equipped and quiet, offering a sound nights sleep in a comfortable bed. The power shower was exactly that, and worth a mention. The rooftop infinity pool and jacuzzis are great for soaking up the views of the world famous Singapore skyline, only small disadvantage being there's no bar up there, however there is a rooftop gym for those who prefer the healthier option. Breakfast was varied and you could eat as much as you wanted with ample seating inside or out. There's also a bar showing HD sports with a well stocked Danish pastry store opposite. Well worth a stay and ideally located to explore the wonderful city of Singapore with Taxis a plenty outside reception or a short walk to the MRT station.

Pleasant hotel in a very good location. Walking distance to China town, Clarke quay and Boat Quay areas. For those who like a walk, half an hour walk along the quays to Marina Bay Ideal having free breakfast. Pool area is also nice but not a lot of sun loungers available.

We started our stay in room 343. After a day in the room, there was continuous noise from the circuit board. The problem was attended twice but not resolved. We we're then shifted to 259. The problem started as soon as we checked in that room. The locker was not operating and we had to wait long before the problem was attended. Next day the AC switch started to malfunction. The problem was attended by engineer three times, one in morning, one afternoon and one in evening. At night the switch finally gave up and AC refused to start. We had to.change room again at midnight, just few minutes before the birthday celebration. The worst thing with this hotel is they didn't offer assistance with luggage.. Really bad experience. Never staying here again.

Yes we have stayed here before and will do so again. The staff are just so friendly nothing seems to be to much trouble. We made a small breakfast recommendation last time we were here and found it seems to have been taken on board. Close to the MRT, a 7 Eleven, China Town, an all round good place to stay.

Within walking distance of ChinaTown and Clarke Quay and the MRT at both locations. Seven 11 store close to hotel where you can purchase a preloaded ezlink card to use to get around on the MRT to all the major attractions for minimal cost. Underground MRT very clean and easy to negotiate with attractions such as Chinatown accessed from that stop. Included in hotel price is buffet breakfast, with all the usual fare. Outside pool on rooftop adequate. Rooms a little small however price, location and convenience out weighs this. Front lobby staff very helpful. Included in room,free phone with unlimited mobile internet, local and international calls.

Great position and value for money This hotel is a fantastic mid range hotel that is close (short MRT rides) to all that Singapore has to offer. Close to the night life and vast range of restaurants at Clarke Quay. Rooms are on the smaller side but nothing new for Singapore. Fantastic buffet brekkie which is included in the room rate along with wifi. Only downside is the comfort level of the beds. Will definitely try holiday inn express again next time I'm in Singapore.

Really nice hotel good price and clean modern little bit small but no issue at all if a city break. Breakfast has great variety, very busy but always found a table. Roof top pool is amazing, and great view. Only 1 issue was that we arrived at 8pm after a 7 hour coach journey and were asked to wait 20min for a room, the lady on reception was super sweet about it. However I would have we would have been accommodated better, not just asked to sit in reception. Would recommend this place - however.

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July. Its in a great location close to the MRT and within walking distance of China Town and Clarke Quay. We really loved the local phone they provided which we could take with us when exploring the city, really helped with Google maps, etc. Would recommend this hotel.

We have stayed with the Holiday Inn Express chain in the USA a couple of times, New York and elsewhere. Our booking for the Holiday Inn Express Clarke Quay Singapore was based on those previous experiences and we have been more than happy with our choice. Reasonable room rates, great service, including me getting the departure date wrong and needing to add an extra night at the last minute. Yes, the rooms are compact, but fully functional with bar fridge, kettle, etc. Plenty of towels, just ask the friendly room staff for an extra one or two. Free bottled water helped keep us hydrated. Comfortable bed, freshly made daily, a work desk, ironing board and iron. DIY Laundry with 3 washers and 3 dryers for SG$8.00 per cycle. Buffet breakfast included in our package price meant we could have a solid meal before hitting the tourist spots for our short week away. Barista coffee shop \ bakery in the foyer, bar with snacks or light meals available as well. 7/11 less than 5 minutes on the same street for those last minute items. Great location about 10 minutes walk to China Town MRT (rail / subway) and shops. 10 minutes in another direction put us on the other side of the river with dozens of bars and eateries. Taxis readily available if needed. Swimming pool on the roof alongside a 24 hour gym room with various treadmills, steppers, etc, if you wanted that exercise. We did some 20,000 steps each day wandering and did not need the gym. Caution, the overcast Singapore sky still has high UV. Do not fall asleep in the sun beside the pool... (I was a very silly rock lobster). Overall a great experience in Singapore and I would recommend this hotel to you.

We arrived very early in the morning (0400) and The holiday inn express staff were amazing- giving us complementary late check out which was lovely. The room itself was perfect- everything we needed and a comfy bed also! The pool area was a highlight, we loved it! Breakfast was also delicious! A great way to start our holiday!
