Travel Blogs from Singapore
Also gut, ich gebs ja zu, ich war heut etwas frustriert, dass ich mein Luxuszimmer aufgeben muss. Es war so schön, toll gelegen, tolles Zimmer, toller Service, jederzeit Möglichkeit ins Fitness mit TV! und dann auch noch der Pool, was will man mehr. Man gewöhnt sich so schnell an Luxus.
Deshalb wollte ich heute auch partout das Bett nicht …
Well, I'm not really sure if it's the weekend or not! haha...everyday is a Saturday! We were sad to leave the Maldives, but the day had to come...
Singapore Airlines...luxury in an airplane. No better way to travel! Comfort at it's best. It's like an all inclusive resort...alcohol, toothbrushes, socks, blankets...everything you might want …
UM DIA DE CONTRASTES
No meu último dia de Cingapura, resovi conhecer o dia a dia dos locais. Sair um pouco dos lugares turísticos e mergulhar no cotidiano dessa cidade. Eu gosto muito de fazer isso em todos os lugares que vou. Faz muito sentido pra mim vivenciar, ou melhor, presenciar, seus hábitos,costumes, enfim a vida normal que todos n …
Uma breve introdução para entender melhor o que vou relatar sobre o que vi no meu segundo dia completo aqui.
Cingapura, como um bom tigre asiático que é, experimentou um acelerado e intenso crescimento econômico no início da década de 1980, apoiada na agressividade das estratégias de atrair pesados e diversificados investimentos estrangeiros. …
Finalmente meu primeiro dia em Cingapura!! Bom, dia, mais ou menos. Acordei de supetão às 4h40 e não consegui dormi mais! Fuso horário, cansaço, tristeza, lugar diferente, acho que um pouco de tudo isso se misturou como razão para meu despertar tão cedo.
Rotina higiência matinal, e fui para o laptop. Atualizei o blog e comecei minha pesquisa …
How has this hotel rated in the past?
O hotel é de categoria econômica e indicado para quem privilegia localização à extravagâncias. Quarto pequeno, mas confortável. No banheiro, o box de banho é aberto, sem continas ou portas de correr, o que faz do banho uma molhação geral.
Fora isso, pela localização, principalmente, vale a pena.

Historical Traveler Reviews Robertson Quay Hotel Singapore
I am 67 and stayed at the Robertson Quay on 14th Oct to 17th Oct 2005 room 303. SG$300 was demanded from me when I booked in, by a rude truculent staff member. The following morning the person behind reception said, "Good Morning Sir." I said good morning back. The person behind the desk looked at me, shook his head and nodded towards a suited man with a laptop. It seems that this was an indication of the treatment I was to receive as I was considered a peasant.
Worst hotel on earth
I've been staying in hotels around the world since April 15th this year... I've stay in hostels that are CLEANER and BIGGER than this place!! I can't believe it's call HOTEL, at all!!! You can find a cleaner place sleeping on the streets in singapore and you can find a bigger place in any hostel... DO NOT go there! I payed for 11 nights and stay there only ONE. I KNOW it's a "cheap hotel", but it ended up being extremely espensive for us, because we couldn't stay there another day... OH! you can NOT shower in your room, you have to go to the gym or you will flood your room.
I can read people here talking a lot of crap about this small and very kind hotel. Maybe they would like to stay in a 5 star hotel, Ritz or something. Maybe they do NOT have the money to afford that and keep complaining about cool places that they can not even enjoy because of so much self frustration or short money.
I stayed here during the Chinese New Year. Like most reviewers have noted, the website makes this place look 10 times better than it actualy is. When I first checked in the reception told me they wanted 200 SD deposit. I told them I didn't have it, so they said okay, 20 SD. So I gave it to them. The website said nothing about having to give a deposit. Also, the breakfast was horrible. Who eats hot dogs for breakfast? It was the cheapest place I could find and seemed pretty safe and secure. The location was awesome... near Clarke Quay and Chinatown.
My daughter and I stayed in the Robertson Quay for three weeks in March/April. We put up with the construction noise for the first week but had
It's an OK hotel which I found was clean and livable. Not a "great" hotel - just very basic! You can live with basic, can't you? :)
It's amazing what the Web can do for a hotel, isn't it? The Robertson Quay Hotel's Web site makes it look a lot nicer than it is. The hotel is nicely situated along the Singapore River and a short cab ride/long walk from Chinatown. It's across the street from Clarke Quay, which has some nice shops and good but overpriced restaurants. It isn't too expensive either, although prices on hotels.com or expedia are significantly cheaper than booking through the hotel web site.
I stayed at Robertson Quay hotel a couple of years ago, and found it to be a great hotel and excellent value for money. I was back in Singapore this month and stayed there again. The hotel has really declined in standard. My room was shabby and the bathroom dirty (a collection of hairs from the previous 30 occupants). The staff weren't particularly helpful or friendly. Even the little touches were forgotten. They never even replaced the tea/coffee, so your initial 2 teabags were it for the duration of my stay. In fairness, the hotel does appear to be having some major refurbishment going on (outside) which, at the moment, means a lot of noise from the construction people during the day. Hopefully this will lead to an improvement in standards. Having said all of the above, the hotel is actually not bad. Even with all the critisism, it's still reasonable value. It's just a shame that it doesn't continue to maintain the high standards it once used to.
I have now stayed three times at this hotel, Good value, clean, well situated.
Found the Pool last night, small but clean & very good.
Fitness Center is good as well.
Very friendly Bar staff, next door with excellent Fish & Chips.
10 Min walk to Orchard Road, but always taxis available.
Free E.Mail & Computer points in rooms.
Highly recommended to all on short business trips.
Grossly overrated by internet
I booked into this hotel for my stay in Singapore and was extremely disappointed with the size of the room and bathroom. Despite being billed as a queen sized room there was inadequate space for luggage or storing/hanging items. The bathroom was extremely small and also very smelly, in fact the room bore no resemblance to those pictured on the website.
I stayed one night only before transferring to the Gallery Hotel!
Cheap but basic!
