“Older style in a good spot”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

I stayed here for one night, with a late check-in and early check-out. Despite the hotel being in a really great spot near Little India and Bugis, I'm relieved I didn't stay for longer. Rooms are older style, neat but not exactly clean. My room had a bathtub, which was appreciated, as was the buffet-style breakfast.

We stayed at the Hotel for about 25 days as a part of business visit. Our stay was extremely good and memorable at Summer View.

First of all, the Hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the city at Bencoolen Street. Bugis MRT is about 3 minutes walk. Travelling to any place is convenient due to the strategic location of the Hotel. It is not far from anything. The best restaurants including Mc Donalds, KFC, Burger King and several others are very closeby. You will never run out of option for eating even at 3 am since some of these are open 24 hours. Little India is in close proximity. A brisk walk of 5 minutes will take you to the best restaurants of Little India. The Taxi Stand is right outside the Hotel and the Bus Station is right across the road.

Secondly, the warm and courteous behaviour of the staff, namely Mel, Sitti and Latif is a big plus point. You can always turn to them to assist you and give you tips/ideas about touring in Singapore.

Thirdly, the rooms are fairly large compared to the average size of Hotel rooms in Singapore. The breakfast is good. The rooms are neat and clean, well air-conditioned. The bed is very comfortable with crisp white bed sheets. Besides, there is a tea/coffe maker in the room, TV set, bath tub, fridge, free Wi-Fi etc.

There is a free shuttle bus for Sentosa every hour right in front of the Hotel. You can even buy the Universal Studio passes right inside the Hotel. There is a 'Seven Eleven' convenience store right across the street. It is open 24 hours and makes your life pretty simple for picking up daily essentials.

Although the Hotel is about 10 years old, overall it was a very pleasant stay at Summer View. We did not have any problems throughout our stay of 25 days and would definitely come back to this Hotel the next time we visit Singapore.

We (4Adults + 2 Kids) were on vacation and wanted a place which is close to Little India (for no other reason but to eat Indian vegetarian food), but not inside Little India (after all we wanted to feel the experience of living in a foreign country and not in the by-lanes of Chennai). 2nd requirement was close to MRT and not too expensive. After much research we zeroed in on Summer View in Bencoolen street and I would say we didnt make a wrong choice.
Summer View is good if your plan is to keep roaming the whole day, eat out and just reach the room to get a good night sleep and freshen up for the next day.
Location is good, about 5 mins walk to Bugis through the busy Bugis street market. About 10 mins walk to little india.
If you are planning to go to Sentosa...you have the free tourist bus right from the hotel (check the desk for timings).
Though they say all the rooms are same, I found them a little different in terms of area. It is just enough to keep your luggage. Beds are good, ok for 2A and 1K (<10-11yrs). Toilet doesnt have hand shower so a bit difficult for those who are not used to toilet papers. Dont rely on their toiletries, pl. get yours.
TV/Mini-bar is of no use. Locker and tea-maker are useful.
Staff is very courteous and helpful. You can get taxi right in front of the hotel, but considering this is in the central business district, be ready to shell out 1$ extra for each ride.

Overall - dont expect too much...good if you want to just spend the nights.

Location was good but hotel bedroom was very poor. Room for 3 adults was very cramped with no window which was disappointing! We were so tired after our flight fro London we were too tired even to complain about the room. Staff where excellent very helpful and could not do enough for us.

My husband, 11 year old son and I stayed here for two nights. We booked for a queen bed plus a single and ended up with 3 single beds. As another advisor mentions, the Windows don't open so you have to have the aircon on all the time. The building is fairly old and dated but it is located right near Bugis Markets which is good.

The property is old but location is outstanding. Rooms are generally larger than average Singapore hotels. Fairly clean. A tea coffee maker. Airconditioning works well. TV in all rooms. Breakfast is simple but gets you going.

Staff is very friendly

Room Tip: Request a room on the higher floors with a view
