It's hot and humid in Singapore. Over 30 degrees today when we hit the island resort of Sentosa for a fun-packed day featuring zip wires (photographic evidence for those that doubt our bravado!), a laserquest style battle with 7-year-old Singaporeans (we let them think they’d won…) at Fort Siloso, the old British Fort which protected …
We awoke to rain, but after breakfast the rain seem to have cleared. So decided to do our free river cruise. We walked down to the river, which was through a hotel across the road, we came out at Singapore River Cruises, we went to the booth inquiring about the next cruise. He told us that the river cruises left from Clarke Quay. We headed off …
Today we slept in, we were woken by the bell at the door, people waiting to make up the room, it was 9:50am. Breakfast finished ay 10:30am. We quickly put on clothes to go for breakfast, we were going to shower on our return.

We caught the bus to the airport early 9:30am as we were ready, just as well because I could go and see the Emirates desk and ask for exit row seats as the fight was full it took a while. The Emirates lady graves us first row seats behind the bulkhead behind business class, we also had a window seat. Because it was a full flight she said that they …

Historical Traveler Reviews Furama RiverFront Singapore
My boyfriend and I stayed at this place to ring in the New Year. First of all, we thought we could take the train from the airport to the hotel, but the closest train stop is in Chinatown. We walked about a mile to the hotel, crossing many streets and taking many overpasses.
Just returned from a trip to Singapore, where I stayed in this hotel for 3days in early Janaury 06, with my boyfriend & his daughter.
My friend and I stayed at the Furama Riverfront in September and overall had few complaints. We found the service at check-in to be friendly, the hotel facilities to be good and as far as the location was concerned, it was good for exploring the main attractions. Taxis were always easy to obtain at the front of the hotel - and being from London we found them very cheap!, there was a free hotel shuttle to and from chinatown and Orchard Road, and the nearest metro was only about a 10-15 minute walk away.
Stayed at the Furama Riverfront Hotel and when you first walk in its pretty flashy.
My mother and I have just enjoyed a week in Singapore staying at the Furama Riverfront. We stayed in the Tropical Wing in a spacious , nicely furnished room overlooking the pool and tennis court. Apart from the room not being made up till rather late in the day, (which really didn't bother us a great deal) I have only praise for the level of cleanliness and courtesy shown by staff. Also worth mentioning was how quiet it was for a good nights sleep!
We stayed here for 5 nights there were 4 and we had a room right next door to each other.
I booked this hotel through the Singapore Airlines Stopover package that they offer for international tourists. Seeing as though we arent too fussy (a hotel room is for sleep, no matter how much you pay!), we went for the cheapest category, and were expecting quite a shabby old room and hotel. By the way, the hotel has recently changed its name to the Furama RiverFront Singapore. Yet upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised that the appearance of the lobby and front area actually surpassed my expectations. Masses of marble are used with very thick pylons, and this theme is conveyed right back to the lobby lounge, with a nice cascading waterfall.
I stayed in the Novotel Apollo for a 2 night stopover on the way back from Australia during May 2004.
We stayed at the Novotel Apollo Hotel Singapore from July 21-24, 2004. The first night was included by Star Cruises as a post cruise package. The two nights afterwards were extended by our family to stay longer to visit friends and and sightsee.
