“quiet atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Little bit far from city center, but easy to get taxi from hotel. Need 10 minutes walk to get subway.
Hotel is little bit old but it is OK. Room is big enough for couple and quiet. WiFi was not included, so need to buy.

I stay regularly at the Furama Riverfront; whenever I arrive it feels like I am coming home.The staff in the Executive Lounge are outstandingly friendly and caring. It is really noticeable that they make time to talk to guests and get to know them. It makes such a difference particularly when you are traveling for work.I particularly enjoy the way the hotel celebrates all the Singapore Festivals .
The location is great with lovely walks on the riverside and good restuarants in Tiong Bahru.

I am retiring in September after 40 years in International and too many hotels to count. When I rate my all time favorite you should pay attention!! The staff is the difference and everything else is great too. They make me feel like Norm at cheers and I will miss them all, I was even invited to the wedding of the assistant general manager of the hotel and I went to the engagement party. Go get a suit from The Silken Treasure and say hi to Raj for me. At least buy a Pashmina for your wife and one for every other woman on the planet, Make someone happy. Get a massage in the place off the lobby and I recommend the foot massage from the owner but you need to make an appointment, Your feet will thank you, Upgrade to the executive level and use the lounge. Say hello to Nicole and the rest of the girls and they will remember you/ I wouild pay my own money to stay here and that should tell you something as I never use my own money for travel, I will miss all of you

Room Tip: UPGRADE and enjoy the experience The free wifi alone is a reason to upgrade but the lounge seals th...

I have choosen Furama RiverFront again for a short business trip to Singapore - as usual.
I like the style of the Exceutive Club rooms and the the neighborhood close to Chinatown.
The staff ist just excellent: friendly, helpful and most attentive.
A big thank you, especially to the the ladies from Guest Service in the Executive Lounge.
In this Hotel I simply feel at home - I can only recommend it without any exception, both for business and leisure trips to Singapore.

Room Tip: Executive Clubs rooms in the main wing - with a bathroom made of glass walls and a bathtub.

We stayed at the Furama Riverfront for 7 nights then returned for another night a week later. We had booked an Executive club room which was well worth the money. This motel provided us with excellent accommodation and facilities and most of all friendly, informative staff. Our evenings spent in the Executive Club Lounge was amazing . It included a full buffet breakfast each morning and complimentary drinks and food from 6-8 pm every night also free wifi. The staff in this bar, headed by Joyce, were nothing short of amazing. They looked after us as if we were family, making us feel so welcome every time we walked in. The Executive Club Lounge staff,especially Jill, Amanda, Nichole and April were always there to help us and to offer advice, suggestions and just answer our questions about Singapore culture. The doorman, especially K Mohammed, were such a great help always there to answer questions about how to get to places the best and most convenient way and ensuring our well being at all times. I would strongly recommend this motel to anyone visiting Singapore and especially the Executive Club room which is amazing value for money. The rooms were clean, tidy and very well cleaned and maintained. The pool area was a beautiful place to relax and was very well maintained. They accommodated us on our last day by allowing a late checkout as our flight did not leave till 11.30 at night. We were able to stay and use all the facilities until it was time to head to the airport. An excellent choice.

Room Tip: Choose the Executive Club Room

We recently stayed at Furama River Front Singapore and had a wonderful 3 night stay. The rooms were more than comfortable and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.We had a 10-15 min walk to a large shopping centre and cheap taxis to Orchard Road. My only disappointments were no free WI FI at all in the hotel and the cost of drinks during Happy hour seemed a little expensive, However I would definitely recommend this place on comfort and helpful staff. We had a poolside room which was very pleasant.
