“comfortable hotle”
Reviewed 11 June 2009

A well located hotel with good rooms compitative rates 167 usd incl breakfast for 3 adults in a room per day. Minus is too many group tours check in making the lobby noisy and crowded.
has good restaurants pool & spa. The staff are courteous and helpful. The rooms are clean and well decorated so once inside you are comfortable.
Near the city world mall 5 mins walking distance which has macdonalds burguer king and other restaurants and also a food court.Has lot of branded stores like british india charles & keith aldo body shop dorthy perkins.
20 min walk from china town a must see at night.

Stayed in this hotel after endless searching for where to stay in Sinapore. The location is okay, not central but very close to Chinatown and if you are anyway inclined you can walk in to the centre ( we did numerous times) or to the tube. We got the hotel at a discounted rate , it is clearly a business hotel however our rooms were upgraded on checking in and we were very pleased with the comfortable room.

I stayed at the Furama Riverside for 2 nights.
I had a deluxe room (upgraded courtesy of reception staff) which was very good. My package comprised internet access in the rate (and this is something you should better negotiate upfront as internet access is S$25 per day plus taxes otherwise).

The lobby area is of high quality and so are the restaurants, coffee bars, and conference rooms. High standards.

The room was very nice indeed although the bed was extremely hard. I have not ever complained about this in any other review and was a problem in that respect here. I won't generalise because I can't tell whether they had changed the mattress in that particular room.

The toilette was perfectly adequate with sufficient room.

Location is not the best in Singapore but it is still good. You will need a taxi to get to Orchard Rd or to do the business district. But there are both short taxi rides. You are very close to the riverside and there are plenty of restaurants in the area. Clarke Quay is about a 15 minute walk from the hotel (although you shouldn't walk this distance in the middle of the day due to the oppresive heat and humidity).

I would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

was staying at Furama for 2 weeks. the buffet spread is good and the service is also very timely. however, the laundry etc is over priced. also, they could do with cleaning up the place a little more.

otherwise, the staff is very sweet. it is worth staying in when you are not looking at a expensive stay

This is a large modern hotel consisting of two tower blocks. Views from the bedroom window were not the best, but it was a reasonable size with modern bathroom and good quality bed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Drinks and food in the hotel we found to be expensive. It was about a fifteen minute walk along the riverside to Clarks Quay for the restaurants and bars which are on both sides of the river. Around the corner from the Hotel is the stop for the Hop on Hop off bus which for six dollars you can use all day (for Singapore Airlines stopover passengers this is free) the bus runs every thirty minutes. Also taxis in Singapore are very cheap and metered.

I was looking for a hotel in singapore which provide a reasonable price. Having a look on fragrance and hotel 81 chain hotels, the price was quite unreasonable i guess ( they offered me SGD 99 for fragrance hotel in lavender), thus decided to look for another hotel.
surfing the web, i bumped into furama riverfront hotel. I was suprised to see their price still looks cheap (only sgd 99 nett from agoda.com). i directly pay for it, and print out the purchase proof.
When i arrived in the hotel lobby, I know that i was not going into a cheap hotel. well, the lobby looks exclusive and luxurious with those marble. the concierge man directly assist us to go into receptionist when we said we have booked the hotel. the receptionist request my passport, my friend id card, collateral (credit card), and ask whether prefer non smoking or smoking room. my friend prefer non smoking, and she then said "sir, we upgrade your room into executive room without any additional charge". whoala.. i have read from tripadvisors many people stayed in this hotel get an upgrade for free, but i still surprised when it happened..
we then went into our room and find this executive room to be more than expected ( we were expecting a superior room but executive room ).
The executive room was very clean, modern touch with a big LCD tv, has complete lighting giving a warm ambience, the bathroom was only shower though (i expect to get bath tub and shower).
no complaint whatsoever with the room.
very convenient overall.

final words : get into this hotel, do not expect for anything, who knows they will give you an upgrade.

I stayed here before and didn't remember it being anything special, and I tried it again this time after getting an unbelievable two-night price on lastminute.com (which, by the way, I did not find on any other booking sites). It took forever for them to check me in but I guess it was worth the wait because they ended up needing to upgrade me to a suite due to availability issues. Everything worked well, the breakfast buffet was good (although for some odd reason there were no tropical fruits), there were tons of staff -- I never had to open the door or press the elevator button, good self-service laundry, easy taxi service, nice tropical waterfall setting off the bar. My only issue was some construction noise next to my room, which quickly stopped after I complained to the front desk. I stayed at four different hotels in one week in Singapore and this was the best and cheapest (then again I was in a suite while paying for a standard so that helped!)
