... studios outside the USA, it certainly packed a punch with the quality of its attractions! A particular highlight was watching a high intensity stunt show based on the movie Waterworld. Before the show started I was even singled out and soaked with buckets of water in front of hundreds of onlookers while one of the stuntmen removed Kaz's cap and dunked it in a bucket of water before casually placing it back on ...

... too long as 2 hours later at the front of a 30 minute cue at Singapore immigration I discovered I had not completed an immigration card and would have to leave the cue to get one, and re-join the cue at the back for a second 30 minutes of fun - oh joy!

Paul met me at the airport and we went to Boomerangs, an imaginatively named Aussie bar near his apartment on Robertson Quay. Two burgers and 4 pints came to the princely sum of S$100 ...

The most expensive place in the world!

... enter a shopping mall. Its like a totally different world down under in the basement levels of a shopping centre. It really is mad and something you won't quite understand till you experience it yourself. I have decided that you could get from one side of Singapore to the other without ever coming out in to day light because all the malls are linked by bridges and they are all air conned (something that is defo needed in this very hot and humid country).

The zoo and 6 nations!

... animals, this zoo was lovely as the animals weren't caged really and got to move around More within the habitat created for them. There was different shows going on throughout the day I saw a couple of shows, including a polar bear one. It was great to see clearly and very close up to a polar bear and you realise actually how big they are!

I then managed to grab something to eat sit and relax for ...

... more acting and singing by presenters. Obviously, it was all in Chinese, so we decided not to wait around in that packed crowd for the next 3 hours until the fireworks display. We shopped around at the street market again instead. We found the New Year wishing tree by luck, where Sherilyn wrote (in Chinese) our wish for the New Years. A man there told us where the fireworks would go off so we found ourselves a prime spot and waited. It was really exciting as ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Mandarin Orchard Singapore

    Good... but not memorable.

    from

    We stayed at the Meritus Mandarin in early September 2005, as a one night stopover to wait for a connecting flight through to Europe. The hotel was recommended to us by our travel agent.

    Good Location but noisy

    from

    I stayed here withmy family for 3 nights at the end of August. First things first. The location is excellent-right in the middle of Orchard Road very close to the underground station and surrounded by shopping malls.

    Good 5 star hotel - Grand Tower Deluxe Rooms

    from

    Just returned from 10 nights in Singapore. We were slightly apprehensive after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor but were pleasantly surprised when we got there.

    Not great

    from

    The hotel seemed quite nice at first. I stayed on the executive floor and the room was comfortable and clean. I didn't like their room service breakfast. It was very poor with just one bread roll and one croissant. The turndown service in the evening was a joke: the bins were not emptied and the ashtrays not cleaned. At the ckeck out, on the executive floor, they were not very nice...sort of indifferent. I would not go back and would not recommend it. I had a massage in my room as I was very tired from flying. The masseuse arrived 20 minutes late, no apologies and she did not even have her own massage oil so she used the body lotion from my bathroom! Very poor service from a hotel who wants to pass for a 5 star!

    Some good /some bad

    from

    Very large well appointed room & bathroom but disppointingly ,not cleaned properly

    As a jaded traveller the options in the 24 hour Cafe left alot to be desired although the service was OK

    Check in & out not great

    Excellent Hotel @ Super Location (highly recommended)

    from

    I had a blast staying at the Meritus Mandarine during my trip to Singapore on 23 to 28 of April. The hotel is situated on Orchard Road, which is full of shopping malls waiting for the locals as well as the tourists to have their ... shopping therapy. I have only excellent comments to make: I was given a single room (South tower, 11th floor) which was recently refurnished. The staff was very helpful, ready to respond to every need & question. The food at the Chatterbox, as well as the Mezzanine was simply EXCELLENT. I haven't tasted Chinese cuisine to such an extent but I really enjoyed it. Also the Observation Lounge is a must see. The view is breathtaking, the service is exceptional, drinks and cocktails are superb, while prices are surprising low (compared to prices back in Athens, I thought I was in heaven...). A sure choise, from my point of view.

    Very poor hotel - try the Pan Pacific instead

    from

    We stayed here at the end of a luxury world trip for our honeymoon and were sorely disappointed. We have been to Singapore many times and always stayed at the Pan Pacific but decided to try something new - big mistake! We were given a room on a smoking floor which absolutely stank of a mix of cigarettes and air freshner - it made us both feel sick. The room was very small with very worn furnishings. The carpet was a bizarre green and yellow and had stains on it. The window was also very small. What really annoyed me was that it in no way resembled the photos on their website. We asked for another room and were told we would have to pay for an upgrade to the Grand Tower - which we did. The room was better (looked like the photos) but had an interconnecting door which meant we could hear everything going on in the room including the residents sneezing! Their talking kept us awake until the early hours. I was also aware if we could hear them they could hear us so I felt my privacy was invaded. I think the hotel should have given us an option about an interconnecting room because these rooms always lack privacy. The bed was very hard and the sheets were slightly stained. The bathroom sink had so much mould growing on it that there were fleas or something else hopping around in it. Housekeeping came and cleaned as best they could but I still was greeted by fleas at 3am! There was also mould in the shower. The swimming pool closes at 7pm so we couldn't have a swim when we arrived. We couldn't get through to room service for breakfast. We had to wait ages for the check out and then the staff were rude. The list goes on! We did speak to the manager and gave her our feedback so maybe things will change. The transfer driver asked us what we thought of the hotel and when we said it was terrible he said he had heard that from a lot of people. He did however recommend the revolving restaurant on the 36th floor which is supposed to be very good. He agreed with us that the Pan Pacific always gets rave reviews so please feel free to give that a go - we hope you enjoy!

    Mixed review

    from

    I was staying here as part of a package from Singapore airlines. I had read great reviews of the hotel before staying and figured with a 4 star rating it should be fairly nice.

    Love it !! looking forward to stay there again !

    from

    Was there August 29 2004, stayed for a week. Staffs are friendly, nice location [right on Orchard road] , room are nice .. all I can say is that I had a pleasant stay at the Meritus Mandarin Hotel and will definitely stay there again !!
