                                    As always, the location is good.

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

                                    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)

                                    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.

                                    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.

                                    Great location and very close to chinatown and relaxing by the pool

                                    had to pay for the internet this shoud be free like the Novatel across the road

                                    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.

                                    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.

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

                                    Rooms where a bit small

                                    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.

                                    good hotel , little expensive but good staff and facilities

                                    cost should be around 150 s$

                                    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.
