Oasia Hotel Novena, Singapore by Far East Hospitality
Ranked #42 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 April 2012

We stayed at Oasia hotel for 2 nights. It was an unbelievable experience, not only in terms of the rich boutique oriental design of the hotel interiors but also in terms of good service and excellent location. The Club floors with its own open-air lounge and sauna was a relaxing sight; it was so breezy at all times of the day. Well done!

The Oasia is a new hotel, located in Novena. Novena is a great neighborhood close to Newton (one stop on the red (north-south) metro line) and Orchard road (two stops). In other words, you are very close to the hawker centre in Newton Circus, and all the shopping on Orchard Road. If that was not enough, the hotel itself is on top of a mall (Novena Square).

The hotel is new, chick, with two nice pools: one large one for general consumption, and one smaller indoor one for club level guests.

The rooms at the club level are a good deal (specially if you book early and get a discount). They include wifi, mini-bar, breakfast, and a cocktail hour at 6pm. They also feature a cool 46" TV and an even cooler Nespresso coffee machine. The club rooms are on the small size, so the 46" TV feels like a movie screen. The view from the rooms are incredible (towering over Singapore), and the bathroom as one of the best showers I have seen in a hotel)

Not much more to add. The pictures (and small video) on their website are perfectly fair (did not even bother to add mine). The service is ok, although the breakfast tends to be busy, and they run out of things some times. But since this is a club level breakfast (not a full restaurant one), people are patient enough, and the staff try very hard to get all done for you.

All and all, for the right price, this is a good option for Singapore. I would definitely consider it again for my annual trip to Singapore.

Room Tip: Go for the club-room. Is not much more expensive, but you get lots of little things, from personaliz...

Took a short trip to Singapore and stayed here for 3 days. Oasia Hotel is beautiful inside and out. The rooms are fairly big enough, complete with all amenities. Bathrooms are my pet peeve when staying in hotels and I was very pleased that our bathroom was very clean. The bed was so comfy. Pillows were perfect!
Staff are very helpful. They wrote down addresses of the hawkers, restaurants and shops we wanted to visit. I wanted to leave a shopping bag in the concierge since I had to run back out again to get something and they offered to bring it up to the room.
There's a small shopping mall beside the hotel with lots of small restos and food shops. They had a Starbucks too so coffee was easy access in the morning.
If you need to take the MRT, the station is inside the mall. Novena is 2 stops away from Orchard Road. The MRT is on time and prompt so this made it very convenient for us to go around Singapore.
Love this hotel! Would stay here again definitely!

Room Tip: Request for a room near the lifts, facing the pool.

Excellent location as right next door to MRT and some good food places also.

Stayed here in January 2012 for 5 nights, had an overall pleasant stay and would consider staying here again. The hotel is quite new so the taxi driver from the airport did not know where it is but if you just say its near Novena Square (the mall) then they could easily take you there. Great location if you are using the MRT as Novena station is maybe a 5 minute walk (go into the mall and its underground). This line is the same line to go to Orchard Rd (shopping) and Raffles Place/City Hall if you are in town for business.

My husband and I booked a Club Room which means we had access to the private pool and breakfast/cocktails in the Club Floor. The pool was great with Cabanas around but was a tad bit windy during our stay. The breakfast was alright- I've had better but what bothers me the most is the hash browns were soggy, there were covered right after being cooked. They also have an odd arrangement for eggs- you have to pay extra for poached eggs but boiled eggs are complimentary. During cocktail hour they only serve 1 type for red and white wine (Chardonnay) and no champagne. I don't like Chardonnay so had to order my champagne and pay for it from the bar downstairs.

The rooms were clean and slightly smaller than your usual hotel room. With its minimalistic design I felt that it could have used "some" warmth somewhere. I had great night sleeps while staying here and the bed/pillows were great! However there is a building construction site a few meters from the hotel and they start work early and finish late as well. Though the noise is not that loud but can still be heard this might bother you if you are a light sleeper. The bathroom was also clean and well designed for the small space it was allocated.

Service wise, the reception staff was pleasant and checked us in with a smile and friendly attitude unlike the other reviewers. One time I was waiting for the Concierge to arrive and was getting impatient that one of the reception people noticed and actually went over to try to help me with my query. Housekeeping needs to be improved more- for some reason they don't put away the ironing board and hair dryer if it was left out by the guest. And we also had to request for items like towels a few times before it actually came to the room.

Overall a good stay, this hotel is a winner because of its location and that is the main reason I would stay here again. Hopefully they have ironed out the issues I have pointed out as we will be in Singapore in May and looking for a hotel to stay!

Room Tip: Choose a city view! If you are allocated a pool view room your view is the pool and the apartment ne...

We booked this trip via Agoda and got a standard room for around 140 usd/night (plus taxes). Got upgraded to a deluxe room, which was nice. It's slightly bigger than the standard room with a balcony and a modern bathroom. This was also in the 9th floor, overlooking the pool.

Pros:
- Right beside Novena square with lots of eateries, shops, and the office tower.. and most importantly the MRT (novena station)
- New hotel; modern design; very clean
- Good service; courteous staff

Cons:
- On our last night, the fire alarm rang at around 5AM. It was helpful they had announcements so we more or less knew what was going on (we were told to stay calm and wait for further announcements).. It turned out to be a false alarm. Still not a good way to wake up.
- No free internet

Overall this was a postive experience. The rooms are clean, modern, and relaxing. The bed is excellent. Access to MRT couldn't be better, giving easy access to Orchard Road to satisfy one's shopping desires.

Staff were friendly enough, but didn't seem as 'on task' as they could be. Check in and check out seemed to take longer than most similar hotels, and there wasn't much sense of being a 'valued guest'.

Breakfast was of good quality, but there isn't much on offer. The aunties from the restaurant had trouble keeping up with demand and there was a wait for plates and food. There are a number of breakfast options at the mall above the MRT station.

Still, I'd come back here. There rooms are nice and new. I trust management will invest in upgrading their hotel experience.
