    As always, the location is good.

    Perhaps due to the food fair and Iceland volcano eruption, the price was ridiculously high. Unreasonable price.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    the hotel was very good clean and tidy and in a good positionam for all ammenities

    yes putting there prices up when people were stranded due to the volcanic ash when people needed the rooms at a reasonable rate this has given swissotel a bad press in my opinion s kitson

    very helpful staff, nice swimming pool

    expensive use of internet, malfunctioning bedside panel (either sleep with some lights on or with too chilly airconditioning on)

  • Family with children

    The hotel is just next to the MRT, so easy to get around. Also right next to Qlark Quay area where plenty of pub and restaurant at night.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    the location is unbeatable, in the middle of the liveliest part of Singapore,next to the mrt station and shopping mall.rooms are a bit small and worn out and the bathrooms are especially out dated.

    the bathrooms should be completely renovated, showers are a must nowadays. the make up has been renewed by changing the tiles and faucets but it is not enaugh.

    Location

    The public areas and lounges were very noisy & small and was not good for business coffee meetings

  • Single
    10.0

    Location, convenience and comfort. Hotel staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble. Hotel is suitable for every type of traveller both business and leisure and accommodates all comfortably with no 'intrusions' accross the different categories of traveller.

  • Single

    Very good location. There are a lot of shops and restorants. Big shopping mall just the opposite of the hotel

    Old, very old Tv in room, prices for Wifi and another services are too high.

    good cityhotel nothing bad to say about it.

  • Family with children

    Central loacation and good value for money considering costs of other hotels.

    Rooms where a bit small

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    As we were on holidays during our stay at the Swissotel, the location was found to be excellent. With access to the facilities around the river area at Clarke Quay and Boat Quay, along with diversification of restaurants located there, there is something for every taste. The MRT Station at Clarke Quay is only a couple of minutes walk, allowing fast access to all parts of the city area. Ideally located.

  • Single

    good hotel , little expensive but good staff and facilities

    cost should be around 150 s$

  • Family with children
    6.2

    The service attitude was problematic. We arrive early in the morning. It's ok not to have room until check in time. In spite of the fact that more than 10 people have checkout in front of me, I was told it needed 2 hours to clean up a room for us. After struggling for an hour and keep on pushing the reception, we got one room (we booked two rooms) after 1.15 hours. For the second one, we were told we could get it by 2:00pm, the official check in time. We came back at 4 hours but still no room was available. After lobbying for another 15 minutes, we got our room finally.
