"Terrific Location, Wonderful View and Helpful Staff!"
Spent three nights prior to a cruise leaving from Singapore at the Swissotel Stamford. From the moment we checked in service was excellent. Room 5750 provided a terrific view of the harbor and concerts being presented on 12/31 could be heard and seen from the balcony (as could be the fireworks at midnight). While breakfast was provided with the room, we elected to eat in the Executive Lounge--quite and not so crowded--food fair to good--but a welcome relief mid day for a cool drink. The Concierge was extremely helpful and gracious as were all staff members we came into contact with during our stay. The hotel is situated so that attractions are for the most part within walking distance or a short taxi ride...the mall in the base of the hotel and the supermarket on the lower level along with the food court added to the pleasure of our stay.
"5 star but"
This hotel is one of the best hotel I ever visited, unfortunately they don't provide free wifi. When I arrive to the hotel, their receptionist were reallly kind. The hotel room are big enough for 3 people. They got the bath tub too. Awesome experience!
"The best view in Singapore "
Went to watch the f1 here .. it was a truly magical time and place rolled into an amazing hotel.. brilliant staff, amazing location.. brilliant staff that truly amazed me 24 hours a day in the 3 nights staying here .. you can't beat this place .. trust me worth every penny
"In desperate need of an upgrade"
This hotel deserves one star for the location and one for the view and that's where it ends. This is not my idea of luxury or a 5 star hotel. The room I stayed in looked nothing like the Hotel website pictures. It was very dated and full of old, dark timber furniture. Where was the state of the art technology they mention on the website'' Certainly not in my room. I can also see why there are no pictures of the bathrooms on their site. Mine was very dated, very small and not well maintained. One evening it took 15 minutes of water running to get hot water in the bath/shower. There was no Nespresso machine and really most 5 star hotels provide these. The bed was also very firm. This hotel seriously needs updating! I certainly would not consider it 5 star. 4 at best. On the upside, the view was great and the location was excellent. The Hotel sits atop the Raffles shopping mall which has great shops and lots of places to eat. It is also very close to many sites and right next to the subway so there is easy access to Singapore's great and inexpensive rail system. Overall, I think there are much better places to stay in the area and I will be looking elsewhere next time.
We stayed here on the last night of our honeymoon as a layover. Our room had such an amazing view over the city and Marina Bay Sands. We were disappointed with the bedding situation as we were given 2 double beds (we chose 1 king/queen online) and staff couldn't do anything other then offer another room which we would need to pay for as an extra. As it was one night we sucked it up but would have been nice to have more assistance considering it was our honeymoon. Rooms are pretty dated however I feel its all about the location.
