It was my third time in the hotel, first was in 2009, second time was 2013, due to the prior good experience, I actually chose the same hotel for staycation again.
However it was rather disappointing this time, I understand that the hotel was newly renovated and just opened up after the renovation. I am a singaporean, hence I am mainly looking for comfort while doing the staycation.
I remember the room used to be bigger when I first stayed there in the hotel normal room (during my first stay in 2009), however this time round the room seems to be a lot smaller with very little walking space around.
I think the comfort of the bed and luxury of the hotel is still there, however not so ideal for a staycation due to the size of the hotel room. Probably more suitable for tourists since location would be a main consideration, its convenient around the area, close to outram MRT, lots of great food around - till late night and even with 7/11 (a 24hours convenience store nearby) and some nice cafes around for chilling purpose too.
Would recommend for tourists but not so much for singaporeans since parking is also an issue there - the nearest open space car park is always full since its beside the famous hawker centre, the URA building has multi storey car park, but have no top up machine within the car park itself, so nearest top up location for cash card would be at the 7/11 store. And hotel would not offer complimentary parking like the rest of the hotels around singapore.
Toilet amenities are good since all shower/shampoo products are all provided, however the shower area is also quite small.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Scarlet Singapore, Singapore's first luxury boutique hotel, has made a bold statement, both locally and internationally, by preserving and combining the architectural styles of Singapore heritage buildings with a striking, audacious concept. Vivacious and uninhibited, the interiors of this 80-room hotel pulsate with an eclectic tension, offering all who enter an adventure for the senses. Using signature red and combining it with opulent gold and sophisticated black, the hotel decor's provocative style is followed through in the rooms including 5 individually-themed suites, each with a tantalizing name - Splendour, Passion, Opulent, Lavish and Swank. ... more less
