The hotel is perfectly located within walking distance from Merlion, marina bay, Sim Lim center and even Orchard Road (20 minutes walk). There are numerous restaurants in the area and Bugis mall is just 3 minutes away. Great location. Reasonable breakfast, nice, clean and quite room and the price is good for what I got. I paid for what I needed and got it on the best level.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a clean room, clean shower and a small breakfast and do not wish to pay the p...

Reasonable hotel to move around town, Bugis junction, MRT, food and convenient to get a cab.

Rooms are of minimal standards. Some rooms appear to be refurbished, but it's a old building.

Crew were helpful. Overall good stopover place.

Location good. Close to Bugis MRT, Bugis junction and market. Bus stop just outside hotel. Rooms ok. Some with windows and some without. Windowless rooms are lower priced. Can be claustrophobic sometimes. Staff polite. No free internet. Charges seem high. Better to buy a local sim card and use data on phone. Breakfast was mediocre. Nothing for vegetarian except for bread and juice and coffee. TV channels limited. Rooms have coffee maker. Hotel caters to medium budget travelers. Can get better options in case of slightly better budget.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with window.

We stayed for 1 night in a room without windows, paying about £60 for the room. Singapore is an expensive city, so this is in the lower end of the spectrum, but I don't feel like I got good value or was the hotel of a level I would expect.

The hotel is undergoing some refurbishment, so may get better if they refurbish the rooms as well as the reception and lifts, but at the moment and for the foreseeable future it is not a hotel I would recommend.

Our room was dirty and dusty, the walls even were dirty (how a wall can get dirty I don't know!). The TV was old, and didn't have any English speaking channels. The bathroom was ok, but a bit mouldy around the bath.

Wifi was not included in the room rate, and the charge was incredibly high. There is a computer for use downstairs, but they charge 1SGD for 15 minutes, at the end of which the computer freezes and you have finished what you were doing. The computer is also very slow (it slows down even more in the final minute when it starts flashing). In a country like Singapore it is not what I would imagine is acceptable.

Breakfast is very poor, a little watered down orange juice, some toast and jam and a little bit of cooked food.

The location is a saving grace, just round the corner from Bugis station and within walking distance of most of the sights of the city.

Overall not a place I would recommend, although not the end of the world if you do end up staying here.

The hotel is centrally located with easy access to many parts of Singapore. The front office staff is polite unlike most of the other budget hotels. The price paid is far above the value but the Hotel and the rooms are clean although the rooms are very small and hardly 02 people can move about.. Clean beds, old towels and a clean bathroom. The TV has a few more channels than the other hotels do. The breakfast is awful. Nothing much to eat. Singapore Hotels are so very expensive. compared with other hotels of similar standard still this hotel is over priced. Lots of restaurants around the hotel area.Not a bad place for a couple of days.

I first stayed here last March 2011. Since I'm petite and was used to having an average bedroom, I don't demand large and spacious room on hotel accommodation specially if I'm just staying for a few days. In short, in my opinion Park View Hotel povides a comfy room and just a right amount of space for asians. (but I think western people prefer a bigger room). They are also lenient on reservations, they allowed us to reserve the rooms without a deposit since our case was special, we were booking quite a sum of rooms, and the set up for the rest of our stay was complicated. Nevertheless they were accommodating and have adjusted to our every request. And for that thumbs up! Because some hotels are not really that accommodating on request specially changing rooms and payment options. The only con is, hotel is quite old and for the past 2 yrs I have booked and stayed there for 3x, they don't seem to have done any major upgrades nor renovations yet. But I hope they do soon. I love the idea of walking to places instead of riding a cab.

Location: Parkview hotel is just 30mins from the airport via mrt or 20mins by taxi, 3 mins away from MRT, a minute away from Bus stop, and a minute away from sumptuous great singaporean foods! I specially love the idea of being able to have access to both affordable and fine dining meals easily.

Food: The best thing about this hotel is how it is located to Bugis, I love the foods in here! Although breakfast is served in the hotel, lunch and dinner is not (which is a norm) but you can still get your choices of food from cheap street foods/hawkers or you can go to pricey restau instead. Well for easy, fast and ready to eat foods. There is a food stall below Park View just besides it. For as low as 3SGD, you get a delicious chicken rice, or specialty duck rice, there is a hawker 5mins away which is Albert Complex, they have less than 5sgd foods here and they taste great. Or you can grab your comfort foods nearby, they have neighboring starbucks, mcdonalds, subway within the area. At night, you can enjoy unlimited steamboat dinner (its where you cook ur own food, like throw veggies, meat in, fry them or boil them).

Malls: There are plenty of malls in a 5mins walk, moreso on a 20mins walk but I would like to focus on the 5mins only, you can go to the Bugis Junction, Bugis + and Suntec Mall. If you wish to eat on the comfort of a mall, they have a choices of food on the lowerground foodcourt in Bugis Junction or on the 3rd flr level foodcourt. As well as in Suntec's food republic and SkyGarden.

NightLife and Restau: Chijmes is within a 15mins walk, it's a good place to chill at night..

And since its far away from busy and noisy nightlife of Clarkey, you can rest quiet at night but still enjoy the perks of being within the city center, whether it be for business trip, vacation or both. I think you could consider this hotel, given it's affordable price. Not bad for it's location :)

Room Tip: When making reservations, make sure u get a room with window specially when its triple sharing, coz...

I stayed three nights at the Park View Hotel during a three-week trip to South East Asia. We decided to choose at relatively cheap hotel in Singapore. Compared to most other hotels in Singapore, the Park View was reasonably priced.

The best thing to say about the hotel is that is has a great location. It is within walking distance to most attractions, like the Marina Bay, Financial District, Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, Orchard Road, Chinatown and Little India. We did not need to use taxis or the metro during our visit (except from the airport and to the railway station).

We had a "superior room", and the superior feature is that is has a window. The room was tiny, and it did not have a view to any park. The mattress was terribly hard.

The breakfast was ok - but nothing more.
