“Totally worth it”
Reviewed 23 December 2012

Excellent location with a team of extraordinarily nice and helpful staff. Though room size is just average (our booking is superior room), very comfortable bedding that a sweet sleep is guaranteed. Definately will come back for our next visit to Singapore and recommended to friends.

Reviewed 23 December 2012

For the Missus’ birthday celebration this year, I decided to do something special and planned a staycation – an secret weekend getaway at Oasia Hotel.

We had made a lunch reservation at Aoki (which, by the way, is a fabulous Japanese restaurant) for 12pm, and so we arrived at 11:15am (check-in time was 2pm) intending to leave our luggage with the hotel before returning at a later time to check-in. I had called the day before, and they confirmed that we could do this, which is great news for travellers who arrive in Singapore via an early flight.

I had booked a Weekend Savers Rate Plan (Oasia Club Room) via the hotel’s website. A day after reservation, I received an email asking if I’m interested to include an eStandby Upgrade option.

How this works is that you can indicate certain room upgrades you want at given price e.g. corner room @ S$15, or a “Bukit Timah” view @ S$15. Upon check-in, you can choose whether or not to pay for the upgrade if there are available rooms. The best option of all is the choice to upgrade from a Club Room to a Club Suite for only S$79, before taxes!

The hotel reception made a few checks and concluded that the Oasia Suite is available, and we could pay S$79 for the upgrade, AND we could check-in early! Well, we took it, of course! That’s what this review is all about!

We were brought to the Living Room at level 22 to continue with our check-in. Cold towels and welcome drinks are provided – I’m beginning to feel like I’m at a resort already.

After a quick admin procedure, we were led to our suite. There are a total of four Oasia Suites in Oasia Hotel, two each at level 24 and 25. We would be staying in the one at the top floor, with the fantastic view.

The Oasia Hotel is rectangular in shape, with the lifts located at one end of the hotel. The suites occupy both ends of the hotel, giving you a 180-degree view of whichever side you’re are. The suite that is nearer to the lift is the “not-so-good suite” due to the close proximity to the lift, and also because the view isn’t as good.

Oasia Hotel is flanked by Novena Square Office Tower (to the west) that is 25-floors high, and also Soleil @ Sinaran condominium (to the south). If you take the suite at the far end of the hotel, you have an almost totally unblocked view, except Tower A of Soleil @ Sinaran. Check out Street Directory and search for “Oasia Hotel” and you’ll get what I mean.

The suite is divided into two separate areas – the living room and the bedroom. The living room is brightly lit with the surrounding bay-windows.

Well, people in Soleil @ Sinarans can practically see what each other is doing! The swimming pool below actually belongs to Oasia Hotel, and the open-air common pool is located at level 8. Pretty decent size, I think? There are also a few jacuzzi there.

As per some suites in Singapore hotels, there are two bathrooms, with one connected to the living room. Pretty standard stuff here. Pretty neat mini-bar and beverage area equipped with a Nespresso coffee machine. Naturalis tea packets for non-coffee drinkers. Snacks and drink from the mini-bar are complementary so we stuffed ourselves with these!

The use of wood gives the suite a very cozy and warm feeling, almost like this is not a hotel but a resort! Just like what we had at Quincy Hotel, the safe also incorporates an charging outlet for added convenience.

There is a spacious work area in the room, but then who would want to work when you have a suite to relax in? The natural light is more than sufficient and gives the room a lovely glow. A list of cable channels available – movies, news, cartoon and more.

The rooms along the north side of the hotel should be having the “Bukit Timah” view. A shot of what we can see from our suite bedroom – that should be Caldecott Hill if I’m not wrong.

In the suite, there are numerous electronic controls like these that you can use to switch on/off the lights and control the curtains. The blinds/curtains in the suite (including the bathroom) are all electronically controlled and can be drawn up at the press of a button.

Special mention for the wooden flooring – no matter how cold the air-conditioning is, it is still very comfortable to walk around barefoot in the room.

The bathroom – twin basins, marble flooring and huge bathtub. Nice? No more fighting over the same basin. Below the basins, there is a digital weighing scale.

Toiletries from Thann. Toothbrush, shaving kit, comb and more. The bathtub is huge and can accommodate two persons comfortably. The WC and the rain-shower is located in its individual cubicle.

TOTO WC! The toilet seat can be warmed to your desired temperature, along with a variety of options. How cool is that?

During our stay at Oasia Hotel, we have exclusive access to The Living Room at level 22, which is open to Club guests only. The seating area is divided into indoor, and outdoor. It happened to be drizzling while we were there, so the end of the table was a little bit wet.

As it was the all-you-can-drink cocktail hours, we ordered ourselves a couple of drinks. Below is the Oasia Bliss, the signature drink of Oasia Hotel. During this time, an assortment of finger-food (tarts, mini-burgers, etc) are available for guests’ consumption. For guests who stayed at the Club Room or Club Suite, breakfast is served here as well. Not exactly a huge selection and it was satisfactory.

It was a delightful experience staying at the Club Suite, and definitely one hotel we would miss coming back to. The Club Suite with the fantastic view made all the difference in the world.
We didn’t really get to try out all the amenities in the hotel – there is a gym and a bigger pool at level 8. The restaurant named Zaffron at the ground level where we had our complimentary buffet dinner was OK, but the food was nothing to shout about. There is Cold Stone Creamery ice-cream though!

The service we experienced during our stay was great. I’m nitpicking here but I feel that service standard on the whole isn’t exactly consistent. The doorman/porter who helped us with the luggage during check-in was super-friendly and wears a huge smile on his face. On the other hand, the reception staff who checked us in/out seemed a tad less friendly, even though their service and attitude were fine and couldn’t be faulted.

Location-wise, Oasia Hotel is just a couple of minutes away from Orchard Road (two train stations away) and can help you to save a couple of bucks if you would like to stay in a decent business hotel at an affordable price.

Having said that, TripAdvisor does have a few reviews which gave it a poor/average rating – do check them out and make your own decision!

We originally booked the superior room. We were later contacted for an upgrade to the club room with access to the club lounge at a reasonable price. Despite being fully booked, we were lucky to get an upgrade. The club lounge is nice and relaxing with a good view of the city. It's not the best view in Singapore, but it was just nice sipping on complimentary cocktails and enjoying the view. The spa on the 22nd floor is heated as well which is great for an early morning "dip" or nightime laze.

Staff are really nice and helpful, even reception downstairs. The club rooms have a separate reception. Most bell boys were helpful. Overall really loved it and really looking forward to staying there again!

Very convenient as it's next to Novena MRT with one or two decent-sized shopping malls. The Novena MRT is just a few stops from Orchard road as well.

The rooms themselves. Needless to say, our room was very clean and modern. The shower has a view on the city and the club rooms have a bathtub. The room was small but I'd call it cozy as it was very nicely decorated. It was very well equiped with a coffee machine, scale (very handy if like me you shopped a bit too much) and even you might expect in a room!

Room Tip: Worth getting an upgrade if they offer it! I received the email a day or so later and applied for th...

stayed here a couple of times, on April and July 2012, and I was stunned. the service was exceptionally superb, even the bell boy remembered my name.

this hotel was located right next to a mrt station/mall, so if you are hungry, all you gotta do is to walk about 3 minutes and you'll not be hungry anymore (my personal favorite is Popeye's chicken right next to 7/11 downstairs). and as it was an MRT station, you can go anywhere in Singapore within minutes. the location is superb for me.

the room was also comfortable, with the superb bed and great showering amenities. I think this is the best hotel in Singapore.

Room Tip: all rooms are great.

For the price this hotel represents excellent value when you consider the location, amenities and services it provides. Admittedly it is not a five star hotel but it is priced accordingly.

Staying in a club room gives you a lot of extra benefits and personalised service. We found the club lounge to be a very quiet place with attentive staff. It had a great view and an impressive infinity edge pool. Breakfast was excellent with the egg chef proactively coming around to take your order and other staff close at hand to top up tea or coffee. We didn't get to try the evening drinks so can't comment on those.

The room was very modern in style but well equipped if a little small. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a great shower and bath.

The hotel isn't located in a great part of town but as it is above the MRT station you can get to Orchard Rd very quickly.

I would recommend booking direct with the hotel as their prices are the same as agoda. We were offered a half price upgrade after booking which I took, giving me a corner room. We had to stay the next week for one more night and this time the staff gave me a complimentary upgrade.

We really liked this hotel and will stay here again when in Singapore. On our second visit the front desk remembered my name and directed me straight to level 22 for check in.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a club room, the additional cost is well worth it.

Spent 10 days there in club room. All staff is very friendly and struggling to provide good service. For club rooms almost everything (check in, breakfast, pool) is on the top of building, 22 floor and above.
Rooms are small but for Singapore it is medium size. Surprisingly towels and bed were not always clean.
Always had breakfast on 22 floor. Not wide choice but not crowded. Sometimes however they do not replenish in time.
There are pool and jacuzzi on 22 floor. Pool is cold, jacuzzi is hot.
Fitness room is quite small but convenient. 8 floor.
Saffron restaurant on ground floor for me didn't make any sense as there are many cheaper and better places around.
Best feature is hotel lift to the underpass that links hotel and MRT station.
USD 300 looks too expensive for this good but not luxury hotel.

Room Tip: City view is better than condo (pool) view.
