... back to the hotel, and head out in search of food. We decide to kill two birds with one stone and head toward the gardens by the bay to get food and keep our promise to visit the super trees at night. After a very pleasant dinner we stand and admire the trees from the viewing platform before entering the park to see them up close. What a spectacular sight. We decide that on our last full day in Singapore we need to see all this by ...

... area. There was Indian music coming from the shops and stalls, all intermingled with the smell of spices as food was being cooked in the small roadside stalls. Throughout the time we were on the coach the tour guide gave a running commentary on various aspects of Singapore life including education, the economy, how to buy an apartment, the government and many other topics which were interspersed with jokes about his mother in law. ...
... most pleasant adjustments - at least for Cindy - was being able to wear shorts and tank tops. In India, women dress extremely conservative, with their shoulders and legs almost always covered, even by the beaches in Goa. To do otherwise would be frowned on. Here in Singapore, short shorts, heels and tight fitting tops are the norm, especially around the commercial districts. Also, not having to always look down to avoid poop was nice. However, we did get pooped on by a bird ...

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.
