Reviewed 23 March 2013

930pm check in was ominous, the two young things at reception simply watched us though the glass doors struggling with baggage and did not move a muscle to assist or to get assistance.
Quick check in, but my booking-time request for a late checkout had been ignored. Offered me an extra hour till 1pm. You must be kidding: for an out flight at 1030pm! Pulled the "I am an Acor Silver Carder" routine and squeezed 2 extra hours out of them. Disappointing.
Typically tight Spore room, minimal luggage space, large comfy bed but only one pillow each, poorly placed light switches out of reach of the bed. Empty bar fridge! Minimalistic toiletries. Good included WiFi in the room.
Day 2: Woke up to the sound of birds - so rare these day! Terrible 3-in-one instant coffee (no option for someone who wants black or who wants no sugar).
Day 3: Someone must have complained about those birds; pity. Discovered that they have no printing facility: I won't be able to print our online (via iPad) check in Boarding Passes. Quick check-out. Warning: if you have a lot of luggage and ask them to call a big-sized taxi they will supply you their hotel Excursion Mini-bus at a cost of S$50 rather than a taxi that'll cost you ~S$30.
Overall 2 Stars (of 5)
+s: very central, a hop away from Robertson Quay, a few extra steps to Clarke Quay and just a jump from China Town, strong WiFi in rooms
-s: poorly trained front desk staff, poor amenities, no PC/Printing facility, poor air con controllability

This is a new hotel, and it is quite modern in it's decor. I liked it, others might like something a little more traditional.

We had free wi-fi which was great. The breakfast is expensive and not particularly good.

The bed was nice and firm, and everything worked fine. The toiletries are a little 'budget' but did the job.

Staff were friendly and accomodating.

Close to Chinatown and MRT stations, and a walk to Clarke & Robertson Quays.

Overall, a good experience if you're on a budget and want something modern and close to Chinatown & MRT.

NOTE: There is no pool.

TIPS: Right behind the hotel is a locals food court. Great cheap street food. There is a supermarket across the road, go grab some snacks and beers and go to the terrace and watch the sunset / storms come in. It's partially protected.

Room Tip: Higher = Better. I think the road side has a better view.

I stayed in the hotel during a layover between Oslo and KL. The hotel has a great location, close to the Riverside. It is only 5 - 10 minutes walk on a sheltered walkway and then you are at the Riverside, close to Clark Quay.

The staff is nice, but sometimes the receptionist is more occupied with her Iphone than the guest passing by.

The rooms are good - OK size, and OK equipped bathrooms.

I would probably try to find another hotel next time, but based on the price/location when I searched last time, the Seacare is the best available.

stayed there for a couple of days. Check in was easy but got the room just at promised check in time of 1:00 PM. Hotel is a bit off the main attractions but taxis are easy to find. Rooftop bar was not yet open and the hotel's webpage did not point that out, so we were disappointed because there are no places to go nearby. Rooms were clean and newly furbished. All functioned well.
Room service was quick and food was good. Would stay there again.

The hotel is located along a highway and not all taxi drivers seem to know where it is. Hailing a taxi in the morning was not as convenient as I would have liked. There is a noisy bar downstairs and some loud karaoke singing going on at night but thankfully, it was quiet from the rooms. A small hawker center is located right behind the hotel and is convenient for a cheap, local breakfast in the morning. Otherwise, it seems like a residential area with not much in terms of F&B and convenience stores nearby. Rooms are clean but small.

Overall, decent hotel but there are better hotels in Singapore at this price.

This new hotel is very close to China Town and within easy walking distance of the CBD and Clarke Quay. The rooms aren't particularly large and space in the bathroom is limited (there wasn't much counter space to put our wash bags). They provide a rather good amenities kit (hair brush, tooth brush, shaving kit, sewing kit etc) which is handy if you forget to bring your stuff with you. There is tea/coffee making facilities though only 3 in 1 Nescafe is available so no option for a black coffee.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the higher floors for the views at night. Be prepared for the noisy birds at...
