Stopover - 3 days

A travel blog entry by w14


Had a lovely time in Singapore. The Hotel was nice, lots of room but the bed ...well the bed was like concrete. Denise says she knows why there is so much need for Tai Chi in the mornings. Very difficult to sleep well when you wake every 30 minutes because your hip aches. Generally good service until I needed some teabags delivered to the room; 3 …

Singapore Stopover

A travel blog entry by avocaparktours


made it this far ok. we were sitting up near the galley so plenty of leg room. shuttle service from airport to hotel very good, no stress. Jumped on the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus and toured the city (Wendy counted 3 laps), visited botanical gardens and orchid house, very beautiful. Day trip up the river on boat, trip on The Flyer (oversized Ferris wheel) …

Bangkok / Singapore

Going off the grid for a day! Be back soon.

Ready for some more?
Back in DOWNTOWN Bangkok for the next two nights. It's like living in downtown Los Angeles, Ord Street and Hill, amongst the Occupy protestor's tent village. Our hotel was located in the midst of orange/red level security patrols checking backpacks for explosives. In …

A day on the plane

A travel blog entry by helenandchris

I think most of today was wasted on the plane or disappeared into time zone changes. Anyway, it was a temporary relief to get out of London in a heat wave and on to a nice air conditioned plane with movies and no sight seeing.... We arrived in Singapore at 7pm so not a lot to report.

    Rom good, very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Service excellent. Only negative was that we wanted to visit the Sky Tower Lounge and because our cards were for Excelsior they would not work the lift in Peninsula. We could have got to other floors but not this one. Were rescued by a very helpful member of staff but left feeling we were somehow second class guests!

    It is a nice place to stay. The room was nice but the elevator seems old or vintage??
    The location is great, near to bus stop or MRT station. But it's Singapore, and it is so easy to find MRT or bus stop.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Peninsula Excelsior Hotel Singapore

    Outdated hotel


    We had a 4days seminar in Singapore and was booked to Peninsula Excelsior. The lobby was impressive but the room was not. The location is far from Orchard Road where the action is specially shopping.

    Going Downhill - quickly


    Having stayed in this hotel before, it came as a shock to see what is happening to it now. A magnificent lobby is a facade to rooms that are generally run down and service that is questionable. Intermittent hot water that takes about 5 minutes to find its way into the shower, hit and miss room service - toiletries not replenished, cups not cleaned - musty smell in rooms and elevators that only work sometimes, led to a five day stay that was not memorable for the right reasons. We will not stay at this hotel again and suggest that the owners spend a little money on the rooms and not the pool and whilst on the subject of the pool it would be nice if the management could provide some leniancy and courtesy when the pool deck is well populated at night instead of calling "Time Out" and shutting the lighting down at a regimentaed time each night - and some bar service / snacks at the pool would be welcomed also.

    Had a great experience for 3 months


    Being a traveler on business, hotels have become a second home for me. This being my first trip to Singapore, the Excelsior hotel was first rate. Initially my room overlooked the fire station and on several occasions the noise was unbearable. I was switched to a larger room overlooking the top of the Funan IT mall and my office in the Ministry of Finance building.

    Great Location needs a little tlc


    We have just returned from this Hotel - staying as stopovers on way to and from UK to Nz

    Very disappointing service at the Peninsular on a Singapore Stopover Holiday


    I stopped over in Singapore in October as part of a Singapore Stopover Holiday (SSH) for a night and was accommodated at the Excelsior Peninsular Hotel in central Singapore. These stopover holidays are a great way to see Singapore apparently and they include accommodation, hotel transfers and discount vouchers for many attractions. Our flight from South Africa to Singapore arrived at 6am Singapore time and after transfers to the hotel we arrived by about 8am. This is where the probelms started - upon checking in I was told that my room would not be ready until 2pm - this was the normal check-in time... I questioned why someone on a stopover holiday who was arriving so early in the morning would not have a room immediately available and was told that this was not the hotels fault.

    Tacky ? Not a problem


    Just back from finishing a couple of weeks in Thailand with 3 days at this hotel in Singapore.

    Tired bedrooms, lovely reception, agree with what has been said before


    I am in agreement with much of what has been said before, great lobby/public area, super location opposite the lovely old cathedral in its grassy area,and great views over the harbour from our high floor (14th/17th?). But as always, lots of building work going on nearby - will any of it affect the views in due course?

    Wholehearted agreement


    The lobby, complete with grand piano and the glass sided pool look like a taste of luxury to come; jet-lagged travellers, do not be deceived, the rooms are a huge let down. Ours was spacious, we had a triple (me, husband and small son) but the bathroom showed signs of a hard life and there was an odd damp patch on the carpet just in front of the bathroom door; I was afraid to investigate that further.

    Tired - a bit of a understatement


    As per the review below - I stayed at this hotel in 2003 and can agree with this. Lobby - wonderful - fresh and modern. Pool area small but acceptable (there are 2 pools). The rooms however- thought I had stepped through a time warp to the 80's - tarnished brass/gold everywhere. Rooms small, beds lumpy and the whole room had a musty damp smell and decor to match. Lighting appear to come from 40 watt bulbs and the bathroom was slightly larger than a closet - on a closet doesnt have peeling paint and signs of mold. This is a pity because I once stayed here in the 90's and the hotel was fine then - it appears all the money has gone into the lobbys and restaurant and cannot be found for the actual rooms.

    A bit tired!


    Since 1989 I have been travelling to Singapore (on holday) nearly every year. In that time I have stayed in this Hotel, and its previous guise as seperate Hotels, about five times.
