Reviewed 10 February 2014 via mobile

We stayed 9 nights in the executive club room. Although the room design is a little dated, it is reasonably sized and comfortable. We were on a high floor with a beautiful view of the marina bay area. We even managed to catch the spectacular fireworks of the Chingay right in our room. The hotel accommodated our request for a quiet corner room and an extra bed for our 4 year old without extra charges. We are pleased with the service of the hotel staff. Special mention goes to the concierge/bell service who were prompt and efficient. Whenever, we called the hotel's main line for housekeeping, extra pillows etc, our requests were met promptly too. Our only disappointment was the hotel pool which is rather cold and small. There is no children's wading pool too. Although we didn't use the hotel's self-serviced paid laundrette, it is a nice touch for those on slightly longer stay. The hotel's location cannot be any better as it is just across the street from Chinatown mrt station (covered link bridge) and right in the heart of the charming Chinatown area with great food galore. The hotel could do with a bit of an updating to its facade and facilities. However, it made up for the shortfall with it's fine location and good service.

Stayed for four nights as a couple whilst on business and sightseeing. The location is fantastic- close to Chinatown, Clark Quay, and shopping centres.

The MRT train station is just across the road and you can get around Singapore easily by train, bus or cab from here.

Good value for money, recommended.

I stayed for 5 nights with my husband and 16 year-old daughter at Furama and was very satisfied. The room was spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly and the location is so convenient. From the lobby one can get to the 2 shopping centres via the walkway and it is so handy in getting those cheap but yummy takeaways. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Furama City Centre.

I had to go to Singapore for business and needed a location close to the meetings I was going to attend. Based on location and price, I chose this hotel even though I had never been there before.I stayed 2 nights on an executive level floor. From the moment I walked in the hotel the staff was there to assist. Check-in was painless, the room was great, the views were fantastic (see photos), and the glass-enclosed toilet area (see photo) with tub and glass-doored shower with multiple heads made the room someplace I wanted to come back to at the end of a hard day. The breakfast in the executive club was not the usual tired buffet of warmed-over foods. The staff brought to me all the delicacies I chose (smoked salmon with cream cheese and capers, stuffed olives, salmon sushi, fresh mushrooms of different kinds sauteed in wine and butter) as well as my freshly-prepared 2-egg omelet on toasted foccacia bread. They even made Earl Grey iced tea for me. The hotel is located close to, but thankfully not in, Chinatown and only about 25 minutes from the airport. For the price, this place can't be beat.

Room Tip: Upper floors facing the water have great views

This is a good hotel - simple but clean with everything you need and a great base from which to explore Singapore. The staff are friendly and helpful. Just don't order a beer in the lobby - $20++.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and the atmosphere of Chinatown.

Stayed 5 nights in this hotel for business trip so the only time spent in the hotel is only during evening to early morning time.

The room is consider quite spacious in comparing to average Singapore standard and although this hotel was a bit old by its history, some decent upgrades and renovations been done so I personally felt it's quite a comfortable stay,...room is great, staff service were good, breakfast is satisfying...
