BA upgraded us to business class, the ability to lie down is great for pressure relief. The middle seats are a bit claustrophobic. Tonight we try out economy plus.
The weather is hot and sticky but the shopping was ok.
Hi peoples - had a great time last night on the rickshaw ride - great fun! Alan had an unfair advantage in the rickshaw race - he had a Superman cape on the back of his. The river cruise at night was good too, lots of pretty lights and a great crowd on the tour. No presents from Chinatown I'm afraid girls - no genuine fake designer handbags & …
Arriving in Singapore was a total change from where we had been...we back to somewhere similat to Hong Kong and opther major cities. I quite like the feel singapore has, as it has lots of themed places and areas for drinking and partying, lots of shopping ( we have arrived in the great sale week which is a shame as we have no money to spend but …
Mary and I said our goodbyes in a tired and hungover state, and I boarded a bus which looked really nice until it started moving, and I found it had egg shaped wheels. Either that or the suspension was shot as we bounced all the way to Singapore, where the lazy driver dropped us at the border with all our bags and no idea what to do. I had no idea …
17 June The meticulously clean streets and order of Singapore replaced the chaos and pollution of Jakarta. Singaporeans with their preoccupation with cleanliness make Singapore a pleasant place to get it together before setting of into mainland Asia, for me it was a journey home again but not that I can remember. Arriving at The Inn Crowd a well …

Historical Traveler Reviews Gallery Hotel Singapore
This Hotel is most definately the worst 4 star hotels i've ever stayed at (and i've stayed in quite a few!). With the exception of the service on the front desk which is Okay there are few positive comments i can make on this hotel.
I've read all these reviews before I decided to stay in this hotel; and I never regret it. Everything was great. Staff were generally attentive; though I needed to remind them twice before they came to fix the desk lamp. The buffet breakfast was the BEST I've ever had in hotels - great choice and tasty. The room was clean and bright. Essential items such as toothbrush and paste, shampoo, soap, hand and body lotion, shower cap, shaver, and even sewing kit were provided in the bathroom. The free in-room internet connection was superb. I didn't bring the internet cable along and they lent it to me free of charge. I also enjoyed very much the river-side stroll down to Boat Quay. The only down side, I think, was the air-con which was too cold. I turned it low, yet the room was freezing. Overall, this is a very nice hotel and I'll certainly stay here again and recommed it to my friends.
Yes, it is minimalist, trendy, hip, funky etc - all bright neon colours and stainless steel etc. etc.
Genuinely warm and caring service!
Yes, the hotel decor was fun and trendy. The glass walled cantilevered pool was an absolute trip, and the Glazzhaus Room where I stayed had a beautiful view of the city skyline. But what made my experience truly memorable were the staffs who were genuinely warm and caring.
I travelled with a friend who injured his leg and had difficulty walking. Everyone assisted in making the trip a pleasant one, including constantly bringing up buckets of ice to the room for the cold compress, microwaving a gel pack at the Zenden for the hot compress, and inquiring on the progress of my friend's healing.
Would definitely recommend the Gallery to anyone interested in a unique personalised hotel experience in Singapore.
Great Hotel both for business and holiday
Hotel is better than expected. Not the usual 4/5 star hotel you expect. Great value for money especially with FREE broadband internet access. Like the rest said, everything about this hotel is funky, trendy and hip... Good location too, away from the busy shopping or CBD areas yet just mins away.
We had a great stay at The Gallery Hotel! We really liked the rooms because they were so clean and modern with a lot of sunlight. Each morning there was also a newspaper outside the door. Very nice. The pool is very nice but they need to put out a few more lounge chairs. The service was great and the front desk gave us great advice about shopping and transportation. You can take a bus to Orchard Road or Bugis - it takes about 10-15 minutes and cost 80 cents. Great restaurants are within walking distance - Brewerkz and Iguana to name a few. Great hotel - would definitely stay again!
The Gallery Hotel is an excellent hotel for those who are wanting a funky, trendy and different type of hotel. Everything is cool about this hotel, from the crisp reception area to the colourful and efficient restaurant on the 5th floor.
I liked the relaxed atmosphere. Good, young staff and pleasant surroundings. Location is also good. No subway nearby but a lot of buses and both Orchard Rd and Chinatown are a 15 min walk away. (I didn't have to negotiate a steep hill to get to an MRT station as mentioned in one of the reviews). Breakfast not a lavish spread but good quality.
