Renovated into a french-style heritage hotel, SO Sofitel Offers a state of the art heritage hotel in Singapore. The thoughtfully planned hotel really comes into details for the customers. Winning best new hotel in the past year surely deliver its high level of services. Recommended👍
This is a trendy hotel that is very central to everything (although everyone says that everything is central in Singapore). The rooms are small but very modern with everything controlled centrally from the iPad and iPhone provided in the room. Very nice bathrooms with top class amenities. The gym is nice and the pool area is ok although we didn’t use the pool during our stay. The staff are lovely throughout the whole hotel, from bar staff at the pool to the dining room. We got exceptional service from Paulo when we ate at the restaurant and also Arnel from the concierge team (who went over and above what you would expect in terms of service). My only advice is to try and not get a room near the hawker market. Our first room 246 (I think from memory) was right on top of the stalls. Whilst this was great to look at when we first got into the room we found it to be very noisy at night and in particularly with our little daughter. When we raised this at reception, they advised to have our bags ready and they would relocate us throughout the day, which was done with no hassle at all when we were out at the Zoo. We had a great experience at this hotel and if I’m in Singapore again I would definitely be happy in returning to the Sofitel So.
I was craving some chocolates at night and although all of the restaurants downstairs were closed I was given some excellent truffles by a very kind concierge/receptionist Lily. I will not forget the hospitality and it was a very nice surprise. Thanks Lily! It really made my stay here. Stanley
This was our first trip to Singapore, in early June, we stayed at So Sofitel on two separate ocassions, taking a side trip to Thailand in between. There are not enough words to explain how magnificent the whole team works together. In my opinion a hotel is just a hotel but what really makes a hotel memorable are the experiences you get from staying there. At So Sofitel Singapore the moment you walk through the door you are treated like a VIP. The guys handle the luggage for you and as you are checking-in hand you a refreshingly cold fruit punch in a test tube - a nice touch and very chic! These young guys are more than doormen/concierges/baggage handlers - they are more like family. They are SO friendly you couldn't help but feel you were at home. So to Andrew, Jeffrey, Asru and Michael we say thank you for being there to assist us throughout our stays - we appreciated your help and guideance. The hotel itself is charming, with designer touches throughout - very stylish. Breakfast and dinner were both delicious experiences, with Paulo leading the way - he is a great asset to the restaurant team. The reception ambassadors also went above and beyond to make sure we were completely happy. I must give mention to the lovely Helena who helped us settle in and managed an early check-in for us and Howard who was just delightful. The pool area was clean and tidy, the lovely towel lady kept coming to remove used towels. The roof top bar was a welcome relief from the heat, again great service from the lady with a beautiful smile! There are so many fantastic 'little touches' about this hotel - his and hers toiletries, fridge stocked with cold drinks(free), bottled water, iPad, So Sofitel perfume. We would not hesitate to stay here next time we are in Singapore, in fact I would insist on it! Thank you So Sofitel Singapore, well done.
The Staff at this hotel are absolutely amazing they are there for you 24 hours a day and endeavour to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Which they truly did on our stay - A big thank you to Lily 😊and all the staff. The hotel itself is very chic and is right next to Lau Pa Sat, which is one of the most popular food markets in Singapore here you can try the local delicacies. Also the Downtown train station is only a short walk away. We would not hesitate to stay in this lovely Hotel again.
We stayed 3 days at Sofitel in Singapore and it was fantastic! The hotel is beautifully furnished and decorated. The whole hotel smells really good, so that we ordered the room scent on their website! The staff is very freindly and warm. The breakfast buffet was excellent.
The hotel is nicely designed, trendy furniture, special lighting in front of the very small reception area, stylish dining area and common are spaces. For a five stars hotel the disappointment is at the rooms level. Standard Room is extremely small and the bathroom with a glass door and wall not so practical. A tiny bathroom could fit only 1 person even we had one hook for two towels... the glass door of the bathroom does not close which is not appropriate for such a small room... The team service is acceptable to the exception of the pool lady of the early morning who is extremely nice. The best advantage of the hotel is its location next to marina bay sand, many malls and business district. The view is limited to the internal side of the hotel or high buildings. The small pool area is charming, music, decoration and the ambiance. I encourage this hotel for business trips as if it is for vacation standard rooms as not recommended. Maybe other rooms would fit best.
We arrived on an early flight from Paris and checked in at 9am. We desperately needed a room but had no expectation after the people in front were denied. However, the reception staff were fantastic and came up with a room for us immediately thanks to our Accor club membership. We were also allowed to extend check out the following day to 6pm. The level of attention and service to welcome us to the hotel and the room was outstanding, and this level of service was consistent every time was had an query, request or just passed by reception. The heritage room was so comfortable, especially after the overnight flight. This was a welcome that we will not forget and are happy to tell others about. As a bonus the hotel is right across the road from Lau Pa Sat, and only a short walk to the fabulous Marina bay and gardens - really worked for us.
We booked the SO VIP Suite the weekend of June 16-18th 2017 for our wedding solemnization. We were amazed by the welcoming, guest service and the room we were offered. The staff even decorated the room with balloons and rose petals for our wedding day. Everyone at Sofitel So made our stay really special and we would definitely recommend to stay there!
