My girlfriend and I had a very pleasant stay at Klapsons.
First off, the beauty of this hotel, and its hallmark, is the design. From when you first see the lobby from outside, with the lamps at odd angles, to the reception egg, to the rooms themselves, there is a unique design. It gives the hotel a quirky feel.
We stayed in an Oasis Suite, which due to the open design is not like most suites, no separate rooms for sitting and sleeping areas, but provides you with plenty of space, if not quite as much as a usual suite. The bed was on the firmer side of comfortable, but sleep quality was still good. There was some intrusion of road noise in our room, and some of the large windows did not have blinds that fully covered them, but sleep quality was still high as the area is pretty quite at night. The bathroom was large and well designed, with plenty of space for two people and a large shower. What made the room for us was the outdoor jacuzzi on the small patio, which was comfortable for two people and was a great place to soak after a long day.
The internet in our room was pretty poor, especially when there were many users on the wireless. After being unable to check our business we asked reception what they could do for us, and they provided a 3G modem for our laptop that allowed us to get what done what we needed.
The service was above average, with reception always giving a greeting and all of our requests were met. The air conditioner in our room was broken at first, but after reporting it they had someone in to fix it that day.
Breakfast at the hotel was a disappointment. A small selection of meats, fruits and breads with eggs cooked to order. There was no rice, with which I have grown used to breaking my fast. There is enough to be filling, but we skipped breakfast at the hotel a few times to eat nearby.
The location is great for business and pleasure, being a short 5 minute walk from an MRT station from which you can get to anywhere in Singapore. We went to the Singapore Zoo and Universal Studios on this trip and had no troubles. We even took the MRT to get too and from Changi, which was very cheap and not terribly bothersome. There is a mall nearby, 100AM, that has many restaurants and a food court on the top floor where you can get a wide selection of dishes at very good value.
Overall we had a great stay and enjoyed the hotel. If we for any reason visit Singapore again we would definitely consider Klapsons for our stay.
