The Elizabeth Hotel by Far East Hospitality
Travel Blogs from Singapore
Touching down in Singapore a little after 7pm, I caught an airport shuttle bus out to my hotel in Mount Elizabeth, just back from Orchard Road. As I looked out the bus window in awe at the shiny, gleaming metropolis I was actually a little surprised to realise that it had been almost ten years since I was last in Singapore.

Wir genießen ein letztes Mal das wirklich fantastische Frühstück im Interconti und packen dann leider unsere Koffer für den Rückflug nach Singapur.
Um 13 Uhr geht die Air Asia Maschine nach SIN, dort landen wir dann Ortszeit um 15.30 Uhr.
Per Taxi gehts zurück in die Stadt. Das letzte Hotel liegt quasi fast an der Orchard Road, die wir als …
Ternyata tak ada yang lebih menyenangkan selain menghindari Orchard Road yang riuh di hari Minggu pagi. National Museum of Singapore adalah tempat yang asyik untuk menyepi. Koleksi museumnya mungkin tak seberapa dibandingkan museum nasional kita. Namun kecanggihan dan visualisasi koleksi-koleksinya cukup mengagumkan.

China's New year celebrations.... We arrived in Singapore to the delight of the Chinese new year's celebrations and with our one night and full day we decided to make the most of it...... much to my disappointment (Mike) as I would be quite happy roaming the airport of Singapore....! Besides, Singapore is just one big shopping mall right?? Luckily …

We made our way back to the Skyrail and decided to have a better look around Vivo City. We had a look at DVDs and games and toys..... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!!! much more expensive than we were expecting. We went to check out the cinema and looked at the pricing and upon doing so decided we should watch ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Elizabeth Hotel by Far East Hospitality Singapore
Met some of our family here for christmas. Was a little disappointed with the size of the room, we had just arrived from the USA which is a very long flight and felt cramped especially after being on the plane. Did not spend a lot of time in the room as we did as much sightseeing as we could and the closeness to Orchard Road and Lucky Plaza was great. Just around the corner and be prepared for some walking up and down hills as the hotel was on a high point in Mt. Elizabeth. Have been to Singapore a couple of times and much prefer some of the other hotels I have stayed. Was my husbands first visit so he loved it. Pool was very clean but lots of shade so was quite cool to swim in. Breakfast was ok, we enjoyed eating out more trying the local cuisine and had a great meal on Clarks Quay. Use the MRT so convenient and gets you everywhere.
I've just come back from 7 nights' stay at this hotel and was extremely disappointed about many aspects of the Hotel.
Don't go there
The hotel is tired, the staff tired and the fact that you request a wake up call on not one but two occasions and still don't get one tells the story. I almost missed my flight home thanks to staff members of the hotel with a who cares you won't be back attitude - how right they are.
The Elizabeth, not that bad as some reveiws say.
I stayed at The Elizabeth on May 22 - 26, 2005. My stay was nice and the Hotel Staff was great. The rooms are small but the price was good. It is not on the main drag there but it is within walking distance (about 10 min.). The only thing that I could find to complain about is that there are not any other food places close to this location. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay and would stay there again. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, this is not the one. It is in a great location and very quite. Enjoy your stay in Singapore, very nice place and people.
Stayed at this hotel whilst on transit to Dubai via Sydney. The hotel touts itself to be A Hotel With Old World Grandeur--which I found was an absolute joke! Furnishings, interiors look like something out of a beauty salon in Hong Kong with fake-looking wood veneer which I personally think is trying to mimic that of Burr Wood. However, was upgraded to the Deluxe room and it was huge! Toilet floor was sticky with stains--thankfully they provided room slippers, and a bathrobe! Service-wise, the front office should be thoroughly praised as they went all out to help. Special mention should be given to an employee known as Calvin; staff at the Pasta and Spice cafe pulled a long face, probably due to working in the morning. Breakfast was an utter disappoint, not anything like a four-star hotel. The very most I would give is a 3-star rating due to the very limited variety. Swimming pool was exceptionally clean, but could do with a jacuzzi. The air-conditioning's thermostat worked in our room at least. Overall this hotel is mediocre at best and if it still wants to be rated a 4-star hotel, then it has to fall under the low-end 4-star umbrella. I recently stayed at the Le Meridien Changi Village Hotel--The Elizabeth's sister hotel--both are owned by the FarEast Organization Group, which was new, and especially loved the minimalist yet contemporary design of the room. If you're fit or love cardio exercises and location's what you what, Elizabeth is a great choice as it is perched on Mount Elizabeth! Check out the stunning Paragon just right down the hill! Viva La Magnifique!
The location was good. The pool was nice but the area was too shaded. The room was average with old furniture, dark green carpet and heavy drapes. The air conditioning was way too cold - no way to turn it off. The room was nothing like the pictures I saw. I found the service to be very unpleasant - not even a hello from the doorman or a smile at the front desk. We felt very unhappy at the hotel and so we checked out early. You can find a better hotel for the same amount or less in Singapore.
Loved the location
Very warm and friendly - stayed for 2 nights on the way back from Australia - a slight walk downhill takes you onto the main Orchard Road strip with all the shops etc - rather small rooms but hey - who wants to stay in their room in Singapore!!!
You get what you pay for
Having stayed in October 04 I was a little disappointed with the Elizabeth.
The location is good about a block back from Orchard road however the property itself always felt a little dark and uninviting. This was perhaps because our room was quite close the the ground floor with little natural light getting in. Combining this with near arctic air conditioning which we could not adjust upwards left us wanting to spend more time out of than in the room. I couldn't help but think at the time that this was perhaps because we were on a discount room rate.
If shopping or business are your main reason for visiting Singapore than the Elizabeth is a great base but if you are looking for a hotel which you want to spend any amount of time in relaxing then I would keep on clicking.
Based on the glowing reviews and impressive photos I made a booking for my husband, myself and our 14 yo daughter at The Elizabeth. Unfortunately, the room we were given looked nothing like the ones in the promotional photos. We were given 3 single beds, in a small room with tired furniture and stained carpet. There were no extra blankets and the airconditioning was was far too cold. The bathroom was also not all that appealing. Breakfast wasn't the experience I have come to expect in Singapore with hardly any fresh fruit in evidence, it was mainly deep freid and heavy.
