      Excellent all round Hotel

      Of all the larger hotels we stayed at, the Club Rooms at this hotel were simply fantastic. The staff are wonderful, the rooms clean and the food varied and excellent. We very much enjoyed using the excellent 'Club' with its all inclusive food and free cocktail each night. Don't wait...book it. Close to Raffles, where we recommend Curry Tiffin.

      Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Singapore

      Good hotel, good location, great japanese restaurant

      from

      This is a fine hotel for a business traveller in Singapore. It's not going to break your expense account like some of it's fine high-rise counterparts, the location is good (one block from the Raffles), the rooms are very comfortable, and the best part, at least to my mind, is this perfect little Japanese resaurant in the lobby (Suntory).

      This is probably the best "hotel restaurant" I have eaten at in a long time. Not fancy (but not cheap either), just a quiet little sushi joint turning out spectacular fish and also cooked meals. Try one of the set meals, it will set you back about USD$50-80, but it's worth it.

      As a very frequent business traveller, I come to rely hotels such as this -- comfortable, yet small and no-nonsense, but with delightfully refreshing amenitites such as the Japanese restaurant.

      Highly recommended

      One of the best stays in Singapore

      from

      I stayed at the Intercontinental hotel Singapore in May for two days. As a frequent traveller You know what is great and and what is not that great. I have stayed at most of the five star hotels in Singapore and found the Intercontinental was the best I have stayed so far. The service was fantastic and the room was awesome. I booked a jr suite which was really nice. The atmosphere of the hotel was so soothing and THE STAFF WAS TO NOTCH. If you are looking for a hotel in Singapore this is the place to stay. The club lounge was fantastic, nice snacks. I enjoyed my stay here.

      Best value in Singapore!

      from

      I live at this hotel most of the year and used to work in the hotel business. it is the best value in Singapore. The rooms are great and the service could not be better. I would stay away from the Shophouse rooms and go with a standard one as they need to be renovated. This is a great hotel for leisure or business.

      Great Hotel at an Affordable Price

      from

      We stayed at the InterContinental for 3 days last Christmas. What a wonderful hotel and great value for money. We booked 2 interconnecting rooms via their web site which included breakfast for a very reasonable price. Yes, the beds are devine and the service outstanding and our bathroom had to be seen to be believed (I think we were actually upgraded because I have never seen a hotel bathroom so large). Our tower room had its own small lobby area before opening onto the bedroom in one direction and the bathroom in the other direction. I would certainly recommend this hotel to travellers who are looking for a little luxury at a very affordable price.

      Service was outstanding. Room average.

      from

      We booked a shophouse style room. It was lovely, but a little worn. I had expected louvered windows that open out with maybe a small balcony, but the louvered doors could not be opened in or out. The bed was divine and the service just outstanding.

      Nothing excited,

      from

      Stayed there 5 nights in early January with my wife. We tried to check in at the hotel lobby, but was told to check in at the club lounge on the highest floor as my wife is a Hilton hhonors gold member and got upgraded to executive floor. The room is very small, really nothing to talk about.

      We were entitled to have breakfast at the Club lounge, pool side or the resturant near the lobby. I was getting sick of eating same food every morning after 3 breakfasts at 3 different places. Sheraton and InterContinental are much better. The old lady who works at the Club lounge looks very grumpy, never smile, hardly greet any clients. A hotel guest bought 2 of his friends to the lounge and the old lady came up to him right away and started to question him. She told him that he could only bring 1 friend to the lounge, not 2. He was so embarassed and left with his friends. Afternoon and evening Hors d'oeuvres snacks at the club lounge is a turn off, cheesy junk food (like spring roll, peanut) provided. Other hotels at the same category do provide better snacks like sushi, smoke salmon and delicated snacks.

      Due to bad location of the pool, couldn't get sun tan before lunch hour since the pool was blocked by the hotel and other buildings. By the time when the sunlight came down to the pool, it was already 2-3pm. The size of the pool is relatively small. I am a regular gym goer, but when I saw the gym, I instantly lost my interest doing exercise there. It is a small exercise room and looks empty, not well equipped.

      The only interesting things are the restaurants around the hotel, but not belong to the hotel, and you can find all kind of foods you like. Starbuck is right opposite the hotel.

      After all, as a frequent traveller, I don't find this hotel interesting at all, nothing outstanding you can talk about with your friend. Only people who don't travel much would find this hotel nice.

      Fantastic

      from

      Great location, staff & room! The bed is almost HEAVENLY - very big & comfortable. The pool is great & nice work out room.. the only thing is the allocated times to use the Jacuzzi for Men & Women - not something I am used to in Canada!

      Great service & staff and yes..I agree with the other write - a nice walk to Raffles for the Long Bar!! Lovely flowers & very inviting entrance as well. Would certianly recommend and stay there again when next in Singapore.

      Wonderful hotel, great location.

      from

      We spent 4 nights here on our way to and from Malaysia. Service at this hotel was excellent, and our room in the Tower was beautiful. We could not hear any noise from the shopping center. The breakfast buffet was quite good, although we were not impressed with the Italian food (lasagne) in the Mediterranean restaurant. The location is great - walking distance to Arab Street, Little India, and the classic Raffles hotel, easy cab ride to Chinatown and Orchard Street. Construction next door could be heard from the pool area. The only minor annoyance was frequent problems with our room key, which opened our room door but would usually not work in the elevator, so we couldn't get to our floor. There seemed to be ongoing maintenance to the key machine. The price, including breakfast, was very reasonable. All in all, a great place to overcome jet lag.

      Impressed

      from

      did the Singapore stopover special on the way to Melbourne 2 weeks ago, and was booked into the Intercontinental for 4 nights.

      I couldn't fault this hotel on much at all. Great service, superb room, friendly staff - our friend travelling with us even got a birthday cake bought up to her room on her birthday, which was completely unexpected!

      I found the connected shopping mall very pleasant and handy, didn't bother us 1 bit. Admitted there is building work on the go across the road so was a bit noisy pool-side, but that's Singapore, busy as always.

      Will certainly be staying at this hotel when next in Singapore. And if u do stay there, make sure you have the buffet breakfast, it's quality.

      A nice hotel...an o.k. location

      from

      We stayed at this hotel in 2001 (so things may have changed). Overall, this is a nice hotel. Upon arrival, we had booked one of the "shophouse" rooms. The concept sounded interesting enough, and the room was actually ok. But the crown molding was coming loose above the bed, and we were terrified that it was going to crash down on our heads and some point in the night.

      So in the morning, we asked to be changed to one of the rooms in the main tower. This was a much nicer room, but lacked the character of the shophouse rooms (the hotel was built in a former residential/business location. They preserved the facade of the building, which were shophouses, and converted them into rooms, attached to the hotel).

      The one negative (at least to us) was that the hotel is literally attached to a VERY LOUD shopping mall. You can't hear a sound from within the hotel, but it's a very rude awakening to arrive at the hotel tired, and have those sliding glass doors swing open and great you with throbbing bass music, hordes of people, etc. But Sinagpore is one huge shopping mall, so I guess we shouldn't complain about that.

      Overall, this is a nice hotel. The location is somewhat centralized (but not to Orchard Road or the Central Business District). I think it warrants four stars.
