Well we waved goodbye to wonderful Vietnam and jumped on a flight to Singapore.
We flew singapore airlines and it was a great 3.5 hr flight. Decent food and spotless, smell free toilets, always a bonus.
Meanwhile back at home it seems we have had a snake invasion and the girls had to call in a snake catcher to check the place …
After a very long day yesterday it was great to lay down in a comfy bed. We all slept very well and woke up this morning at about 7.30. We went and had a yummy breakfast and Ben ate some 'local' style food....... The girls and I however stuck to the normal!! So for our first day he in Singapore we decided to go shopping and check out a few sights …
We arrived into Nongsa very early this morning only after a very eventual evening on the boat. The fuel they bought yesterday an Anambas had been watered down and the generator that ran all the air cons and electicals kept cutting out the whole time, the poor crew where having to drain the fuel filters or something to that effect, me not being boat …
This morning we were woken by the sound of knocking on our door. It turned out to be one of the hotel staff asking if our mini-bar needed replenishing. After a very disturbed night for both Mike & I, it seemed like it was still very early in the morning so an odd time to be woken for such a thing. We couldn't believe it when we realised it was …

Historical Traveler Reviews Novotel Singapore Clarke Quay
Stayed at the Novotel on Clarke Quay for 8 nights (14th April to 22nd April). The standard rooms (and bathrooms) are a little cramped and the plumbing noise from adjacent rooms is intrusive. Broadband Internet access is available in-room but is expensive. The room safe is way too small to take a laptop and the hotel does not offer an acceptable alternative for security.
Just returned from a night here and found it to be a great hotel,fanastic views over the river which lights up at night.Liang Court which has a supermarket and shops is underground.MRT a few minutes away.Great service and rooms were clean and had all the mod cons you need.Kids loved the pool which was big.Would definately return here.Booked thru travel agent.
We stayed at the Novotel Clarke Quay recently and I have to say : Excellent !! The hotel is right in the middle of Clarke Quay, a recently upgraded area of Singapore with lots of restaurants and clubs. Ministry of Sound, Indochine, Crazy Horse Cabaret, you name it, it's there !It is also very close to Chinatown and not too far from Orchard if you fancy some shopping.
River view is superb
Although rather uninteresting from the outside, the location of this hotel is excellent.Rooms with river views have a fantastic panorama over Clarke Quay and all the skyscrapers beyond.The rooms were fine.
The Citytour bus stops near the hotel and was an excellent way to travel around the city and then return to the hotel.As we had 2 days in Singapore, their 2 days for the price of 1 deal was ideal.It is also not too far to the excellent metro.
Clarke Quay is by the hotel and is well worth visiting,particularly in the evening.
The Novotel Clarke Quay is in the process of being renovated and when we stayed the new entrance on the ground floor was still not ready. The Reception is on the 7th floor, the other floors being a small shopping centre.
They put ads all over saying its a complete make-over. Not so!
We stayed 8 nights at Novotel Clarke Quay, in an Executive Sup room, harbour view and this was one of the best rooms I have had in my life : well equipped, designed furniture, comfortable bathroom and pleasant balcony offering incredible views.
Just returned from a 3-day stay at Hotel New Otani in Clarke Quay, Singapore. It's a great hotel! Very clean, huge comfortable beds, large spacious marble bathroom with both shower and bathtub, complimentary yukata (Japanese bathrobe) for personal use during stay, and best of all : an excellent view of the Singapore river!
It's Okay...but there are much better hotels
Don't let the on-line marketing glitz fool you. This is a 3-star hotel surrounded by real 5-stars. The rooms are dark, carpet worn, walls really scuffed up and loud noises form somewhere all hours. After 1 night of a 3-night stay I changed hotels. Fitness center is under construction and no alternatives provided. This is geared to the massive tour group crowds. My room wasn't cheap and they would not include Breakfast. Checked out went across the River to the wondelful Swissotel Merchants Court. Paid 10% less with breakfast and free laundry included. Stay somewhere else.
