Reviewed 20 December 2013 via mobile

A fair option for a short stay, perhaps the rooms would benefit from an update, but a pleasant reception area & lounge bar. We stayed two nights following a cruise & found it a reasonable option. The location is not ideal, although the walk alongside the river is enjoyable with the bars & restaurants. One negative was when we visited the hotel restaurant on the Saturday, when my husband's choice of the chefs special noodles was not available!!! Overall though an ok stay....would we go back? Probably not, as we would opt for a stay nearer one of the quays

Just returned from a 4 day stay at the Furama Riverfront on a Singapore Stopover Holiday.
Room although possibly a little dated was comfy and clean and fresh towels provided daily.
Staff very friendly, check in was quick and efficient. Good choice of food available at a 50% discount for stopover guests. Hotel is situated near to the hop on bus stop which is a bonus.
All in all we had a very pleasant stay.
Would like to compliment the hotel on its Christmas decorations ... they were awesome.

The hotel is located about 10 minutes away from the CBD. The rooms are bigger than other Signapore hotels but they are in need of renovation. The carpets in the room wear a rugged look and there is worn down look in the entire room. On the plus side the breakfast was good and also the hotel has a very good swimming pool. If you are on a short business trip and need to bunk for the night, the hotel is decent.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a non-smoking floor if you want to avoid the smell.

Recently we spent four nights in the Furama River Front Hotel Singapore as part of the Singapore stop over program. A pleasant hotel not far from the city. Check in was fast and efficient The room was excellent as to be expected.
While there may be other shops, in the vicinity, we found a garage about 100 meters from the hotel where small purchases could be made. The hop on hop off bus stop, is situated close to the hotel
The food was adequate, typical hotel fare. Enjoyable without being exciting. With the stop over program there was a 50% discount on food.

My only complaint was that the internet was not free. $8 for 30 minutes.

I would recommend this hotel when using the stop over package.

I spent two nights at this hotel, and enjoyed the stay.

The room was a little faded, in-built furniture being scuffed and scratched around the edges, but the room was comfortable, well equipped and QUIET.

I was on the road-side of the building, but had a peaceful rest on both nights. The sound insulation is great.

The shower is probably the best I have had in Singapore. Great pressure, great temperature, I just loved it.

Check-in and Check-out were quick and efficient, nothing to complain here.

The only "problem" (if you can call it that) was the location. It isn't convenient to any particular part of Singapore, and there is nothing for shopping or entertainment in the immediate vicinity. Taxis are easy to get, access to other areas is fast, but if you want to get out of the hotel for an hour or two of diversion, there isn't much choice.

Thank you for taking the time to share with your fellow travellers your Furama Experience. We are delighted to read your kind words, however it pains us to know that our concierge did not manage to share with you the insider’s knowledge of all the bars and restaurant along the Singapore River.

Once again, we thank you for sharing with us your feedback and we certainly look forward to welcoming you back with us again in the near future. In the meantime though, Happy Holidays!

This standard hotel is good for a short stopover in Singapore. It is not far from the main attraction, in walking distance (about 25 min) to Orchard street or Marina Bay. Huge variety for the breakfast buffet. Room nice and clean. There is a nice pool.

We stayed here as part of a Singapore Stopover Package sold by Singapore Airlines. We arrived at 9am, and were pleased to be offered a room straightaway. We had been upgraded to an Executive Room on the 17th floor. It was large and very comfortable, with dressing gown & slippers provided, plus some nice toiletries. We appreciated the air conditioning. The hotel is on the SIA tourist bus route, so we used that as our transport around town.

The breakfast buffet was amazing - so many different types of food on offer. The evening buffet was equally good, and very busy. There was a promotion on at the time to certain credit card holders, so there were many non-residents in.

Happy "hour" in the bar is 5-9pm, and enjoyed the Tiger Beer.

All the staff were excellent, and service was great. Our cases were looked after on our final day as we had an evening departure. We were offered use of a shower in a changing room facility near the laundry (machines and powder provided for a fee) before we left.

We would be very happy to stay here again, and as we really enjoyed Singapore and all it had to offer, I am sure we will be back.
