Travel Blogs from Singapore
My adventure here is long over and now I am here, back at home in Hong Kong writing you this memorable experience. During the last day of my stay, and knowing for a fact that the time to leave it coming... I really don't have the words to express my true affection for Singapore. I know for sure that i'll be back someday.
My weekend spent …
Heute wollten wir uns einen faulen Tag gönnen, denn für heute Nacht ist ein Ausflug in den Singapur Nachtzoo geplant. Einmal vormittags kurz über die Orchard Road - die Einkaufsmeile Singapurs - und eine Bustour durch die Stadt sollten wir aber doch noch schaffen, oder? Tja, leider wissen wir auch nicht wirklich, wieso wir dann nach …
3 bis 4 Stunden Schlaf haben wir bestimmt gehabt, als wir von den Stewardessen zum Frühstück gerufen wurden. Allerdings hat Laurin fast nichts gegessen und nach ein paar Minuten wußten wir auch warum: Ihm war schlecht und er mußte sich trotz zweier Super-Pep-Tabletten mehrmals übergeben und hat bis zur Landung 4 Tüten …
We went to bed at 10 pm local...and woke up at 11 am! Amazing the difference a good nights sleep makes. Today was designated to be a rest day...we strolled across the city to Chinatown. An extraordinary mixture of gaudy and bright New Year novelties, and amazing smells, mixed with super modern sky rises over old Chinese shop …
(Dan's entry!) Another fantastic day in Singapore. First stop breakfast and we went native and had the Bee Han which was basically rice noodles, spicy sauce, fried egg and what appeared to be deep fried spam - and it wasn't bad too! After breakfast we jumped on the train to go to Orchard Road where you can shop till you drop. They have everything …

TravelPod Member ReviewsInterContinental Singapore
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
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).
One of the best stays in Singapore
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
