“Noise, noise and not for business.”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

Too much traffic noise and a quite noisy air condition. Daily cleaning is ok but in the 'corners' there is a bit dirty. Not recommended for business because if stay are shortened a penalty day must be paid.

Thank you for your valuable feedback. At klapsons, we work hard to offer good and friendly service & we will continue to work harder to meet your expectations. The 14 days confirmed booking from you kind self was shortened to 7 days & thus we seek your understanding to add 1 more day as per our policy. The hotel also gave a complimentary upgrade, to a bigger room with an outdoor balcony & thus when the balcony panels are opened, sound from outside the room might be heard. I hope you will give us another chance in the future. If you’d like to contact me directly, I am most glad to receive your call. Once again, thank you for staying with us & we hope to see you again soon.

Booked a oasis suite; the room (room 301) was huge with an outdoor private jacuzzi. Love the open concept shower and bathtub area although it may be awkward if staying over with friends. The room was clean, the king sized bed was very comfortable to sleep in, there was complimentary minibar (consists of 2 cans soft drinks, a bottle of beer and 2 bottled water) and nespresso machine with 6 capsules. Love the toiletries by Chopard. The tv in the room is huge but there were not many channels available. Do note that klapsons has a strict policy that only 2 guests can stay in the room; any more than that, you have to pay $600 surcharge. When you book a suite, the staff will bring you up to the room and show you around the room. However the lady that showed us the room was kind in a hurry and not interested in explaining things.
Klapsons is located near Tanjong Pagar mrt, about 10mins walk.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay.

Friendly staff, well informed and helpful. Also changing of the room was not a problem. But it is obviously that the rooms need a renovation. Maybe they were stylish 3 years ago, but now the management should think of a improvement (shower with mildow, iphone4-radio...)

Very chic hotel. Nice and helpful staff. We had an executive suite on the second floor with a balcony. Love that room but wifi signal was weak. And It was a little noisy but it's ok. The air conditioning is very cold and we couldn't figure out how to adjust it properly. Located near tanjong pagar MRT station and the area is close to many adorable restaurant and Chinatown. It's also very close to many office buildings. We are very happy with the stay. However it would be nice to have other hotel facility such as fitness room, sauna, swimming pool, etc. that were not available.

Hotel is located out of city centre but only 5 min walk to nearest metro station and 10 min walk to the start of china town. The rooms are great, but a bit of style over substance and they can be noisy There is lack of info at the hotel, ie no info on meal times or where the bar is (17th floor access via car park and closed on Sat and Sun). The staff were very helpful.

The hotel decor with the silver ball in the lobby gave a good first impression. As mentioned by others the hotel was well situated in a central location within the business district. Shortly after the check-in, there was a strong scent of cooking and food in the Suite. It was rather disappointing but the housekeeping responded positively with their prompt attention to our concerns. There was a note on the fridge indicating that the hotel provide sandwiches on the house during wee hours. To our disappointment, the reception staff told us otherwise and there would be a room service charge on top of the sandwiches. We felt the hotel should take note and improve on the finer details such as providing two bottles of mineral water, wider selection of food during breakfast and to correct the misleading perception of the free sandwiches.

Thank you very much for your compliments. All of us at klapsons are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have noted your feedback & will further improve ourselves to meet your expectations. With regards to the late night snacks, our hotel does provide complimentary milk & cookies or a hot bowl of noodles after our f & b outlets are closed for the day. Your kind suggestion of including sandwiches is a fantastic one & we will definitely consider that option. Once again, thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

It was a last minute booking to klapsons hotel on my birthday. The hotel room is beyond my expectation. Love the coffee machine in the room and this hotel is kinky to the maximum, a shower see through cyclinder right in the middle of the room with spotlight on top. So its really recommended for couples that just want to have an intimate staycation.

The bed and the pillows are so comfy and they give out colgate brand of toothbrush and toothbrush. I had a slice of birthday cake and complimetary late check out at 2pm. Definitely a place if u just wanna chill out and have movie night for a staycation. Its right at tanjong pagar about 10 minutes walk from the mrt station and about 20 mins to cityhall by foot. Breakfast is minimum but filling.

Staffs were friendly and the receptionist even brought us up into the room personally.

Pricing wise abit on the high side, but expectant, its singapore afterall. Do not have very high expectation on this hotel for the cost that you pay.
