Didn't get access to update blog yesterday. Day was a disaster. Nearly had a denied boarding at Kualal lumpur as ticket mistakes then on arrival in Singapore there was no transfer waiting so we had to get a taxi to the hotel.
The hotel is a dingy affair and, well where to start. Internet access is very expensive, and well,, just a …

Cath enjoyed the hundreds of shoe shops, although ironically it was me who needed to buy some, my old sandals which I got in Tenerife a while ago,, just worn …
We arrived in Singapore at about 6.45am from Paris. Had a good flight and watched movies and slept most of it. Singapore felt hot & humid even at that early hour. Caught a taxi to Hotel Miramar and as breakfast was included daily, we had a quick shower and went down to partake of the buffet breakfast. We then had a short sleep before heading …
Tried to get up for an early start but couldn't. Finally out by 10.30 onto open top bus from just outside motel. Saw the Botanical gardens, houses of the rich and Orchard Road. Walked around the famous shopping area looking at all the big name shops. We rejoined the bus and went to the Singapore flyer & the formula 1 site. We didn't go up on the …
Caught the bus to Orchard street then walked to Little India. It was all set up for Diwali with a great atmosphere & colour. Lots of school groups of all ages out on tours being taught the significance of Diwali. The narrow market area was great to walk through, colorful, great smells & a crush of people. Headed to the nearby Malay neighbourhood …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Miramar Singapore
This is a nice 3* hotel. Our room was small-medium sized but well furnished. The bathroom was a reasonable size, not too small. The usual complimentary toiletries/toothbrushes were supplied.
The breakfast selection was very good. I also used the business centre, which had reasonably up to date equipment and comfy leather chairs to sit in. The hotel also provided a free shuttle bus to Orchard Road shopping area. The hotel is about a 15 min walk to China town, but in the heat and humidity it is a bit further than you would want to walk unless you duck into a few shops on the way to benefit from the air conditioning!
If I stay in Singapore again I will pick a hotel that is close to an MRT subway train station.
I stayed there for a few days, short while ago in mid June. Usually I stayed in other hotels when I'm in Singapore but since they were all full I chose Miramar. It's significantly cheaper too (SGD 130 incl. breakfast).
On the basis of previous feedback, my wife & I (mid 50's & Scottish) have just spent 7 nights at this hotel. The feedback in general proved to be accurate and we were not disappointed. Positives: budget price, ideal location - taxis & buses (if necesary) are cheap, clean room (single beds) although 16th floor - fast modern lifts - tea/coffee and toiletries provided - excellent buffet breakfast - evening buffet & meals represented good value - complimentary morning newspaper - staff could not have been more helpful - good swimming pool with towels provided - 24 hour garage next door for bottled water and other provisions.
My husband & I stayed here for 6 days. Loved the location as it was only 15min walk to Chinatown. The Hotel provided a shuttle service to Orchard Road & Chinatown. From Orchard Road, take the MRT to where ever you want to go...cheap, fast, clean!.
Great Hotel, Great Location
We stayed at the Miramar in Singapore early March 2006. We booked this hotel, as we wanted something comfortable but not especially grand as we were planning to be out exploring most of the time. The location of this hotel is great, across the road from the river and 5-10 minutes stroll from Clarke Quay for food bars etc. We found Central Singapore quite accessible by foot if you can bear the heat, and the Clarke Quay to be the closest and quickest MRT station. The 24-hour garage next door is great for purchasing those much needed bottles of water.
Rooms are good, clean and have everything you would expect. Ours' had twin beds rather than a double. Like I say don't expect a 5 star hotel but I would honestly say above average and a great base.
Intelligent choice for value and location.
This hotel isn't necessarily an obvious choice when choosing somewhere to stay in Singapore. However, it is great value compared to many hotels in the city and is in a fantastic location just a 10 minute walk along the riverside to the main Quays area. The hotel and the rooms are not exciting, but they are clean and functional. The staff were always helpful, with the usual friendly level of service when required. The hotel is on a fairly busy road, but this is handy when trying to get a taxi. Across this road is the river and a short walk to the restaurant and bars of Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay. For budget accommodation in the centre of the city, this is a great choice.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Miramar, we were there for 2 nights. I must say that the bed was on the hard side but other than that the it was great. The buffet breakfast was really good a nice big selection, they say its from 6.30am to 10.30am but we got there both mornings at 9.45am and they were already taking things away so don't think you can sleep in and then get brekkie at 10.15am because you won't. Its nice and close to Clarke Quay for dinner and Chinatown. I would stay definitely stay there again.
Perfect for the price
We stayed here for 4 nights in Oct 05.
The hotel is a bit basic, but is comfortable, secure and efficient - but in terms of location (ideally placed for relaxing walks down Robertson, Boat and Clarke Quays) and cost I cannot fault it.
All other areas of Singapore are within walking distance (if you can handle the heat!), or a cheap taxi ride away.
We stayed on Orchard Rd last time, and this hotel was ideally placed to see a different side of Singapore that we missed last time (i.e. the Quays etc).
I'd certainly recommend it for someone who just needs a base for shopping and sightseeing.
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Mirimar for a 4 night stopover to Australia. We knew it was going to be basic because of the price we paid but it was definatley a very good 3 star hotel. We really enjoyed our stay and we would recommend it to anyone as a good, basic hotel that is excellent value for money. The room was spacious and was very clean and that is coming from someone who goes round checking the sheets, bathroom and glasses before I even think about unpacking my bag. We had a room that was overlooking the pool and it was very quiet. The pool was clean and was a good size. The hotel was clean throughout and the breakfast was good and had a very good selection. The hotel runs a free bus to the shops on Orchard road which is very handy apart from using the shuttle bus we walked everywhere because we felt very safe. We would return to this hotel again.
City Centre Service with a Smile
We spent 2 nights at the Miramar and it was an excellent choice for a stopover hotel. Sited on the river, it was only 10 minutes meander along the riverbanks to the Clarke Quay shops and restaurants. The hotel itself was spotless and the rooms were very comfortable although we did not spend much time in the room as there was so much to see in Singapore. The buffet breakfast was excellent and with such a wide range of foods we were all able to find something new or familiar to eat and that kept us going until dinnertime! If you are stopping in Singapore for a few nights, the Miramar is the place to stay.
