... us another opportunity to orient ourselves in Singapore. The shops are 'Bond Street' - Gucci, Mulberry and all the other designer and big expensive brands that you see everywhere. We went into a department store called Robinsons and looked at sandals and handbags for Sue as hers are in her delayed case. Walking boots and 30 degrees really don't mix well. Then on to find M&S for underwear. Good old M&S being here! Mission successful, so back ...
... like a weak long black, did nothing to ease the pretend hangover. But it ate up precious time. The last activity, and no doubt the best thing you can do in Singapore (airport at least) was the travelator races. They go on for miles and Saskia tripped and staggered as she got on them! It was even more impressive her ability to get off without planting her chin or lips on the ground. It took us to our boarding gate and we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Copthorne King's Hotel Singapore
We stayed in this hotel in Sep 2006.
We stayed 4 nights at Copthorne Kings at the end of February. Contrary to previous postings, we found the room and all facilities to be perfectly clean and comfortable. For a small fee we upgraded to an "Executive Club" room that was of a nice size, easy to move around in and immaculate. The little balconies on all rooms were a nice plus. With our upgrade we also got to use the pc in the executive lounge for e-mailing, but didn't take advantage of the daily refreshments that were available there.
I had the pleasure of staying at the Copthorne King Hotel in February for 17 days during the Asian Aerospace Convention. I found the staff very friendly during all times although a little misinformed about things such as locations of nearby eateries or the times things closed on Orchard Boulevard. The rooms were very nice and even had a small balcony. Plenty of drawers, closet space and storage, perfect for the traveler who is staying for a while. The hotel was only 5 minutes by cab or about a 15-minute walk to Boat Quay or Cape Quay, and there is plenty to do there. The hotel offers a great breakfast buffet every morning starting at 6a.m. with everything from omelets to noodles and soup. The one thing in Singapore that really stood out was the price you had to pay for alcohol. There is a sales tax on alcohol there that makes it all quite pricey. Overall I had a great experience in Singapore and enjoyed the hotel.
There was some refurbishment when we got there. Initially we got a double room close to the drilling and banging noise. We then requested to be moved as the noise was unbearable.
Disappointed with the Copthorne Kings
My wife and I stayed at this Hotel for two nights on our return from our trip to Australia at the end of November 2005. We found the staff unhelpful, tended to ignore European guests and tend to Asian guests first regardless of who was next in line. The room we were allocated was supposed to be a De-luxe room, we had to check with reception that it was actually a De-luxe room! The carpet and upholstery were stained and the bathroom was moldy. We also left the hotel with bite marks around are ankles which we strongly suspected to be flea bites. Thank goodness we only had two nights stay. The only good thing about the hotel is its central location for attractions, but then the same could be said of a lot of other hotels.
Copthorne Kings- Never Again
We stayed at the Copthorne Kings for three nights in November. The breakfast in the morning was inedible(ended up just having toast). One morning we did'nt even eat breakfast at the hotel. The carpets in the two rooms we stayed in were stained and dirty(even after being upgraded because we were unhappy). We both woke up in the morning with little bite marks on our bodies! I have a friend staying in Singapore in March 2006 and have already told him to cancel his booking and stay elsewhere. Even after complaining we feel that not enough was done to correct the problems.
I stayed at the Copthorne King's Hotel for 5 days and had an excellent experience there. After an 18 hour nonstop flight from the U.S., I arrived at 7 AM and the staff allowed me to check into a room immediately with no extra charge. The room was on a smoking floor and the smoke coming through the A/C vents was pretty bad, but I was able to change to a non-smoking floor later in my stay. The rooms were small but clean with very good views. The sound insulation was excellent.
Friendly staff, newly renovated
Stayed here for one night in March.
Good location if you are into clubbing - diagonally opposite Zouk and walking distance to other clubs.
The rooms apppeared to be newly renovated, new fittings and spotless. I had a twin room which was a little bit on the small side, but the warm friendly staff really made up for it.
Great hotel, I'd recommend it - if you get a good rate!
First of all I came to this hotel as a last minute choice. I was planning on staying in Kuala Lumpur and traveling to Singapore the next day to get a flight but felt better about spending the night in Singapore to avoid traffic the next day.
A pleasant surprise
I stayed here with my husband and six year old child just after the SARS epidemic, enroute to New Zealand. The staff were friendly, helpful and full of smiles. The room, a triple, had a balcony and a view over the city skyline. It was clean and spacious with air-con. Beware of the mini-bars and the 'snacks' in the room, they are expensive, particularly the bottled water; this trick is employed everywhere and not exclusive to this hotel.
The Breakfast was buffet style and delicious. Lunch and dinner are served the same way. We had dinner at the hotel and have to say that for a buffet, it was excellent and tremendous value when combined with the Singapore Stopover vouchers (available at the airport). Would stay again for sure.
