We stayed a number of times at the Stamford when it was a Westin in the 1990s and enjoyed it immensely. It has a great location near almost anything that you could want to do in Singapore and sits right on top of a subway stop so you can get anywhere else that is not within walking distance. The rooms are excellent and the staff great. We upgraded to an executive room with breakfast and lounge access (as well as free wi-fi) which was a nice luxury. I really can't say enough good things about the hotel. That said, if you are looking for a funky hotel in Singapore, try somewhere else. This is a thoroughly modern, efficient, and enjoyable place to stay.
family holiday, stay 1 night, booked via Expedia.com 2 months ago, we specified that we need 2 rooms next to each other.
We checked in about 6 PM on July 24. Firstly, the reception offer us 2 separated rooms on different floor. I was shocked, and requested we need 2 rooms next to each other. After that the receptionist said the hotel was fully booked, and she can only give us 2 rooms on the same floor. My wife really got angry with it and complaint to the manager. Then we wait about 20 minutes, I saw the manager, pressing the keyboard for quite a long time. Finally, the manager offer 2 connecting rooms on the same floor.
Overall the hotel is good, locate in city center and close to MRT.

Don't let the title 'Hostel' put you off. This is a well run safe, welcoming place to stay.
A working YMCA centre the lower floors are give over to those activities and boy is it busy. The higher floors are the guest rooms. They are clean, functional and safe. The air con worked, no late night noise-the other guests appeared to be either seniors on a break or families involved with the YMCA. The breakfast is quirky but a perfectly acceptable buffet, the staff very friendly. Pool on the roof was great for an evening swim overlooking the city.
Close to public transport and convenient. Ok it is not 4 or 5 star luxury but you don't visit Singapore to stay inside a hotel room. I would stay again.
Pocket Guide: Singapore Colonial District - Beach Road Hotels
The birthplace of modern Singapore, colonial architecture and glass skyscrapers form the backdrop for some of the city's most vibrant nightlife. Its trading port origins are reflected in the colorful rows of former shophouses lining the Singapore River, now home to the restaurants and bars of Boat Quay, and the striking Esplanade--Theatres on the Bay complex is a hub for the performing arts.
