Travel Blogs from Singapore
We arrived safely in fact we arrived 1/2 an hour earlier thanks to a tail wind. Comfortable flight with having an extra seat. We thought we would catch the train into our accommodation however we couldn't work out which train to catch so we ended up in a taxi. First impressions of Singapore is peaceful clean and lush. After we checked in we went …

We are collected in reception to go to the Singapore night time safari as arranged at about 6.00pm. This tour has been much hyped up & unfortunately for us it's Sunday so weekend & …
Changi Airport is always easy to get around. We landed at about midnight and bought a hot chocolate at Starbucks. Clare and I needed to charge our phones so we found a charging station at some comfy seats and sat reading our books. the plane left at 2.20am, at 2am I looked at the time and we all got up and ran. They were waiting for us ...
... really good) and then we took Carter for one last walk and had a nose at all the amazing houses in this neighbourhood. An absolutely awesome month in Singapore. Jody and Becks were fab hosts who let us treat their home like a hotel whilst we kept jetting off to places, eat the entire contents of their fridge (including the chocolates we bought them as a gift), and really make ourselves at home. Thanks guys, will miss you (and your pool, and Carter, and Tina's ...

Historical Traveler Reviews PARKROYAL on Kitchener Road Singapore
I liked the convenience of this hotel, right next to the Mustafa Centre which is open 24 hours and close to all the great restaurants and shops. The rooms werent so bad, a welcoming change after a months stay in India especially loved the bed. Though I felt like I was once again in India but a clean one :) For the price you pay I dont really think its worth it. Employees of the hotel are downright unfriendly and rude and customer service is very slow. There was no milk provided in our room and we had to remind them several times to bring it. It is a bit noisy and you can hear people talking in the next room. We had been travelling around so much and were at that stage that we didnt care so much anymore, we were glad to be just heading back home and looking forward to our own home and bed. I will however not stay there again if I go.
Did not like it very much!
We stayed 3 nights in New Park with two small children and we didn't like it very much. The lobby looks OK, but our room was really dirty. The beds looked clean, but we found black hairs in it...And the bathroom was dirty and in every place was a lot of dust. No, we certainly won't return! I think you can get a better, more clean hotel in Singapore!
Due to heavy workload, I usually check in hotels over the weekend to pamper myself.
Been to New Park a few times and my last encounter, prompted me to write this review, my very first review of hotels.
1) The check in procedure took painfully long while. Gets worst if there's a queue.
2) When I went up to the reception for my check in, the staff looked "offended" by my presence. Perhaps I was just booking into their cheaper rooms, the staff made me felt unwelcomed. No eye contact.
3) The next morning when I had my breakfast at new park cafe, notice the staff was busy. Busy chatting with other staff. I was wondering if they're there to clean tables and that's it.
Guess I won't want to go back there again. Went back there initially cos my girl like their croissant but guess after our last experience, it's best not to go back........
The room was ok apart from the fact that we had booked a double room via an agent, and on arrival were told that it wasnt available. Secondly we found the staff rude, and were a little confused why Singaporeans couldnt understand english, when it is their offical language, apparently. Finally, I wouldn't recommend anyone staying in Little India if they are easily intimidated. As a young white girl I had lots of unwelcomed attention!
Could not get a good nights sleep
Only stayed here for one night but did not enjoy it. After a late flight on Sunday night everyone in the hotel was noisey.
Throughout the night could hear people in the hall way so we didnt have a nice sleep.
Break fast was okay.
It just was not my 'cup of tea' however for those who love culture staying in little india would be great. New Park is one of the best hotels in Little India. Being in this hotel you are in a different world maybe india?
Good value hotel in Littel India area. Hotel is about 10 mins walk to nearest Metro, 15 mins walk to intersection with Orchard road. Hotel is very large, modern, with fairly good sized rooms. Swimming pool clean and tidy, food in restaurant good and service generally helpful. Stayed for 3 nights in April 2003, would return again if looking for value for money.
Good value for the money.
This is a 3 star hotel in Little India. I got a room for $50 with breakfast from S-pore. Room was a bit old but was kept clean. I arrived very late and was given a room with an adjoining room. Eventhough the door between the rooms were locked I could hear conversations from the other room. This was a nuisence but I was tired and it was very late. I asked for a late checkou till 6pm. I was told it will cost me half a day's rate. That was OK with me. But it turned out to be the same as a full night's rate, because they used the rack rate of SGD 160. Overall it was an OK experience.
