If you are not a Hotel snob, this is your 10* accommodation. We stayed in room 310, a double and single bed. Not a great deal of room left around the beds but I wasn't paying to stay in the room all day, it was somewhere clean and comfy to sleep. Some of the rooms have access from the rooms onto a wonderful terrace, this terrace is also accessed from doors at the end of the passage. The bathroom was, like many places rather tiny but neat and clean, I was extremely happy as it had a walk-in shower, rather than a shower over a tub. If steps are a problem for you, I would check if other rooms are step free as our room had two steps up to the door/bathroom.
This place is well situated for many places, diagonally across the road is Swissotel on Stamford, which leads into Raffles Shopping Centre, MRT and a lot more. Raffles Hotel is the next block on from the Swissotel. Suntec Shopping Centre one block away in the other direction, this is where you get the hop on hop off buses. Marina Shopping Centre is opposite. Singapore Flyer is another block or so further on.
I found staff to be friendly and helpful, the included breakfast was more than okay but not as extensive as other places, which for us having a person with coeliacs was difficult. We did however have a run in with a staff member at the bowling lane, a second time there and this person was not the least bit accommodating to my son who is an adult with Down Syndrome. He would not put the bumpers up for him, also as he is inclined to throw the ball we were told we were only having one game not the two as I wanted. This one person put a major downer to a wonderful stay at a great place.
