"Hotel is nice and central within walking distances"
The hotel was nice and easy to go to and from our destination, very central to everything.
One down fall was the food. It was terrible! Compared to all the food places we dined at the standards were very low! It was a dissapointing start to the morning. We tried 2 meals over 2 days hoping it was a 1 off, sorry to say we didn't go back for 3rds.
In order to celebrate my wife's birthday we decided to stay at the Swissotel Stamford. It suited our needs as far as location, rating and price. Due to the re-scheduling of our cruise it was necessary to re-schedule our accommodation at the Swissotel. The staff were extremely helpful in assisting with the re-scheduling - without fuss or penalty. When we arrived a birthday cake was presented to our room for my wife's birthday. This was a very nice touch and added to our memories of our stay. Overall our stay exceeded expectations with a great room with a balcony overlooking the City and the Marina Bay Sands.
Absolutely wonderful experience at this hotel. Everything was top class and the location is awesome for exploring in all four directions. Everybody says that Singapore is expensive but if you keep it local and choose wisely (ie don't go for the typical tourist stuff like Clarke Quay) then food is cheap and there are bargains to be had.
From the hostel you have easy access to major attractions. The airport is about 40 min. away by subway. You need to change 3 times, but it is very easy to move from one platform to the other and to follow the directions provided on the hostel page. Singapore is very well organized, so you have few chances to get lost... The hostel rooms are clean and each bed has nearby a lamp and an international plug. No adapter is needed. Breakfast is basic - cereals, coffee, toast and something to spread on it. The bathrooms might need cleaning more than 1x/ day if I may give a suggestion to the management...
All in all I had a good night sleep, a nice breakfast on the terrace, with a view over Singapore river and the Asian Civilization Museum.
The location in the heart of the city is great! Not only is a ton within walking distance, it's a block and a half from a major hub for public transportation, meaning it's easy to get anywhere else in the city as well. The concierge service is great, helping me out on multiple occasions.
