The Monkey's Business

Let's kick off this blogging business with something more familiar to me: trivia. What are the only two major cities (supposedly) that still have a rainforest? Rio de Janeiro and no prizes for guessing Singapore is the other given that's where I am.

We arrived safely in Singers last night in fact. Very safely as it happens. I am already …

Soaring spirits

OK, so we succumbed to the cliche and doubtless deserved the retribution. But $60 for two sugary Singapore Slings? We were so taken aback we almost had to order another one to calm the nerves. But let's get out of Raffles first for pete's sake. This was night one and we thought we were surely setting an unassailable record for getting ripped off …

Catching the bus from Melaka our next stop was the Singapore border for our penultimate encounter with immigration officials. This time it was Liz who aroused their suspicions having mislaid her arrival card for Malaysia by negligently having handed it to an official at Kuala Lumpur airport – I had lost mine long before that and was ready for …

Today is our last blog from Singapore - and so they will probably become more infrequent once we get to Dili tomorrow, and lose the in-room comforts such as internet access that we have in our hotel room here.
Today we headed up to Singapore Zoo, which is in the north of the island and involves an underground train and then a bus into the …

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Scarlet Hotel Singapore

    Wonderfull ambiance but rooms simply to small

    from

    The scarlett is something different.It has a beautifull ambiance.The breakfast is original and the decoration is simply trendy,but the rooms are just way to small.You can not rate the hotel 5 stars and give your guests a 15SQM room! mind that the standard rooms have no window and the deluxe room a tiny little roof window.Because of lack of air circulation the rooms are very dusty. My advise is have a drink or dinner at the scarlett,take in the beautifull decorations and stay somewhere else or pay about double the rate and get an executive room at the scarlett which has the proper windows and you will have an unforgettable stay.The rate you pay will then be comparable with other 5 star properties in the city.

    Below expectations

    from

    Stayed at the hotel for one night in August. Read about the hotel and was told great things about it. However, it was slightly disappointing. There were no car park facilities and the hotel suggested I park in the public car park which charged by the hour.

    The rooms were small and though the front desk "upgraded" us to a room with a window, I was disappointed when I walked in. Toilet was very clean and nice though.

    The little touches of having DVDs for the guests and happy hour served in the rooms was a good touch.

    The bar was very avant garde and served good martinis served by good looking waitress.

    Singapore in a warm coat

    from

    Stayed for two nights in the Scarlet hotel, mainly for budget reasons (even though I try to stay in 5-star hotels all the times).

    Dissapointing

    from

    Inflexible hotel policy. I wanted a late check-out at 3pm instead of the usual 12pm but was told I needed to pay half a day's room rate for it and if I surpass the 3pm time, I'll be billed a full days rate!. Worst thing is, the hotel wasn't even full so there was no urgency to use my room for the next customer. I checked in the hotel a couple of days earlier late at night 10pm which they were fully aware of and I knew I had to pay for a full day's hotel rate for that, I accepted that......but to be so inflexible to a hotel guest's request for a late check out is appalling.

    Luxurious and Low Cost

    from

    For the price, I was very impressed with The Scarlet. Great service, nicely appointed (yes, yet small) rooms. The location is basically across from the Maxwell Hakka Center and around the corner from fashionable restaurants in the Chinatown area, so there are good eats to be had. A few short blocks from the MRT. Sometimes it can be a chore to get a cab. My one quirky comment is that their uniforms (black and red, with long coats) strangely remind me of Dracula so sometimes I feel like I'm in a hotel run by vampires rather than having a comfortable feeling of being in sexy boutique hotel. But I got past that OK.

    Excellent hotel

    from

    I just returned from Singapore and I spent one night at this lovely hotel. My room was a sinlge room with a single bed. Although it was small and did not have window, it was enough for a single lady. The room was clean and tidy. I liked the toilet facilities most. The bed was also comfortable. The hotel's location was near chinatown and it was easy to travel to everywhere by MRT. The hotel did not have great buffet breakfast but you could have a look at the breakfast menu. I had chosen one type of breakfast set. They were delicious and enough. This hotel was a new hotel in Singapore. You can also enjoy five star service and quality at this hotel. I would highly recommend to my friends.

    Ask for a window

    from

    We stayed at the Scarlett 2 nights.

    The hotel is very "chic" and clean. Staff are attentive and helpful and the location is perfect, right in Chinatown. The rooms are well decorated in accordance with what one can call a "boutique" hotel.

    One important drawback is that a number of rooms have no window.

    Unfortunately, this is mentioned nowhere in any comments I have read about the place. And especially not at the reception desk.

    If you prefer having some daylight, be sure you ask for it ahead of your payment and arrival.

    Love it!!!!

    Its NEW & classy

    from

    Spent the weekend at the Scarlet & stayed at a Deluxe room. The interior furnishing is gorgeous & the bed comfy. Chose the hotel cos it was the newest 5 star hotel (opened Dec04) & introductory rates were attractive.

    Location is alright if you enjoy walking to nearby Chinatown or dining/partying at Club street. Staff were friendly & attentive.

    Overall a good place for a short stay.

    Posh living for a paultry price!

    from

    The Scarlet Hotel is a lovely place to spend a week in Singpore. We found the hotel's location, Chinatown, to be a great base for our excursions throughout Singapore. The decor in the hotel is stylish and classy, and the staff is first rate. Even better, the prices were not prohibitive, and we got essentially 5star service and style for a much lower price. The down side of the hotel is that some of the rooms can be small (the hotel is a renovated shop house), but the plush sheets, towels, bathrobes, slippers, etc. more than make it worthwhile (or so we thought!). The free breakfast gets a little monotonous by the end of a week of the same free breakfast, but all in all I would highly recommend a stay at the Scarlet! It is especially well-suited for singles and couples.
