Had to make a quick visit last June 2008 to attend a booklaunching and the installation of a plaque to mark the Philippine national hero Jose Rizal’s stay in Singapore.
It must have been convention time too since all the old haunts were booked. In the pinch, a friend found us rooms in Beach Hotel at the corner of Beach Rd and Liang Seah St. (We were bringing the books.)
You can see some of my hotel room photos at:
Not quite what I’m used to but quite serviceable for the rough and kewl. A Chinese friend of mine referred to it as a Chinese hotel but not quite sure what that means. In the lift, one sultry night, found myself amidst four 6-foot transvestites, dressed to the teeth, glittered and giddy as hell. Sybaritic Singapore?
Great location, walking distance to Bugis Junction Mall, Suntec, National Library and a wide variety of restaurants
Lots of night action
Hot-Air balloon site just around the corner
Not as clean or bright as the hotels I’m used to in Singapore (see photos)
Wifi available but at a price
1 coin-operated computer at reception
Personally, I prefer the City Hall area.
