Which Santa Grand - there's several from memory.

The Hotel Grand Pacific is really well located. I usually stay at the Carlton just for location and these two hotels practically stare at each other across Victoria Street so the Grand Pacific is probably a minute further walking from anything I normally get close to. You are well placed for three MRT lines (Green, Red and Circle), plus its not that far (10-15mins or so) to Dhoby Ghaut and the Purple Line, so high connectivity for going to attractions other than taxis which make you connected wherever you are. You have a lot in terms of food and shopping nearby within 10mins walk, so excellent end of day and day to day links. THe Civic district is walkable, as are several museums and Raffles hotel so there is a reasonable amount to see in the immediate area.

So the Santa Grand have to compete with that....

Hello,

Which Santa Grand Hotel do you mean as they have several hotels in that brand in various locations - Bugis, Little India, Chinatown, Lai Chun Yuen (in a restored Chinese Opera house in Chinatown), East Coast, West Coast?

Hotel Grand Pacific is a 3 star hotel on Victoria Street. good location. 10mins walking distance to Bugis MRT Station, and Bugis Junction Mall, or 5-10mins towards Raffles Hotel, Raffles City Shopping Centre and City Hall MRT Station. There are handy bus stops along Victoria Street.

There are plenty of reviews of the hotels here on Tripadvisor, so i hope you have had a look at those (the photos taken by recent guests are also helpful in making your decision).

Hello,

Assuming that you are referring to Santa Grand Bugis. Then location wise, imo, Grand Pacific is better. Minutes walk away from City Hall MRT interchange and Bras Basah MRT. Walking distance to Bugis, Raffles Hotel, Chijmes and Marina Bay.

Here, see for yourself. Or you can use google map.

Hope this helps.
