"Good hotel in the vicinity of famous Orchard Road"
We stayed in this hotel during a short trip to Singapore last month-end. Got the good offer during a travel fair in Jakarta, we chose the hotel for three main reasons: location, accessibility, and non-smoking room availability.
I give two thumbs-up for the all room non-smoking room, make our stay more enjoyable (no tobacco smell etc.). Despite our room was facing the next building's wall, it wasn't a big deal for us as we mostly spent the day outside (exploring Singapore).
Location wise, it's close to most of public transport so not a problem at all. In addition, with shuttle bus provided for guests to go to Sentosa complex (allign station in front of nearby hotel), it provides another plus.
"Great place to stay."
My wife and I stayed here for seven days last year. Being located near the corner of Scott's Road and Orchard Road means the hotel is centrally positioned for shopping and transport. Far East Plaza is directly across the road and Ion and Wheelock Place are a quick five minute walk down Scott's Road.
Orchard MRT station is basically underneath the Ion building which means you have access to the whole island less than ten minutes away. The hotel itself is first class with clean, modern and well maintained facilities. The hotel laundry service is excellent and punctual. The room was of a good size with a comfortable bed and very clean bathroom and toilet. There is free and first rate WiFi in the rooms (no drop outs) which meant we had no problems doing our banking and keeping in contact with home etc.
Breakfast was great with plenty of choices. All the hotel staff were polite and friendly and with everyone else in Singapore, their English is excellent.
Recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Singapore
I have been here twice in December 2012 and December 2013.
The hotel is located just at the shopping areas of Orchard Road and very close to the Orchard MRT. Check out their website for very cheap room value during their flash promotion! Good service so feel free to ask their staff for friendly help and enjoy your breakfast at the Carousel.
The view from the window is not very great so take higher floor level for better view. The Carousel can be very full during breakfast so to avoid waiting too long in line, go down early.
"I cannot say more than others"
This is going to be a short review as I cannot add to what others have written. This is a superb hotel with fabulous staff which has won awards for several years, which I consider they truly deserve. I am hoping to be staying at this hotel later on this year and again in the early part of next year.
"Great Location, Staff extremely helpful"
This is my first stay at this hotel, we visit Singapore often as a stopover to Europe. Will recommend this hotel and stay in this hotel again. Great location, lovely dinner buffet. Staff excellent.
The highest standard of service and friendly accommodating staff we have ever experienced. It is worth a trip to Singapore just to experience a stay at the Royal Plaza. Beautiful rooms. We stayed at premier club room. Included was high tea,evening cocktails and breakfast. Great location to. Will definitely be back.
"Excellent hotel with a great location"
Coming into Singapore late at night and getting to the hotel both hungry and thirsty, I was very pleased to find a nicely stocked mini bar to help me out before I headed out to meet my friends. And having a Nespresso machine in the room was a life saver the day after the night before when I had to head to Sentosa on a hangover.
I love shopping so for me the location is great with Orchard just around the corner. The hotel is right next to the MRT as well. Also, not too far in a taxi to get to the best night spots.
My only issue was the waiting time to get a taxi. The number the hotel provides to ring for a taxi was constantly busy too. I managed to get one quicker by walking out to the main road but once I'd figured this out there was no problem.
Overall the staff were friendly, the service was great and the hotel has nice decor when you walk in. Recommended :)
"Great hotel in a great location!"
I've stayed at the Royal Scott several times now. Each time I've been pleasantly surprised by the size and quality of the room, and the overall hotel. Also very well placed near Orchard station.
I arrived very early for check-in (8 am), but despite being full the night before, the staff were able to find a room for me within an hour.
I now happily recommend the hotel to friends visiting Singapore.
"Fantastic location and choice of breakfast!"
The lobby of this hotel is beautiful and its location is very convenient to visit the local mall and various eating places and other parts of the city either by walking or by metro, which is only a few minutes walk away. The room was clean and a decent size with a nice choice of snacks and an excellent coffee machine. Upon entering the room we found two towels in the shape of swans with a card and some chocolate wishing us a nice stay which was a lovely gesture.
The selection of breakfast choices including Western and Asian was excellent although you do have to go early to avoid waiting in a long queue-on our way out from breakfast the queue was quite a long one!
Very friendly and polite staff, especially the checking in staff. All in all a very pleasant stay!
I had a really good stay even if it was only for one night. staffs were very friendly and they gave us complimentary nespresso coffee + room was super comfy :)
You run a terrific hotel, with fabulous staff, so it is not surprising that you keep winning awards.
It had been a pleasant stay. Basic amenities are complete and service of staff is good, always with a smile--priceless
I had a wonderful stay at RP! Staff were all very friendly and ever willing to be of service. Delightful surprise to receive a cute cuddly bear and hand bouquet in my room when I checked in. Kudos to the staff that made my stay there such a pleasant and memorable experience. Chef concierge Ibrahim had a role to play no doubt. Thank you very much! Will definitely come back ! Plus really enjoyed the sumptuous buffet spread!
Fantastic. Very comfortable and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. Thanks for the room upgrade, it may our stay a really special one. Will definitely stay at Royal Plaza again next time I am in Singapore. We also spent some time at Marina Bay Sands and the service we received at RP was so much better.
"One of The Best Stay"
I heard a great review about this hotel. So when I went to Singapore last March, I decided to give it a try and I loved it! Great location, comfortable, great breakfast (despite the queue, but totally worth it!), free wifi, free mini bar. Too bad not a stroller friendly entry access.
This was my second time staying at this hotel. Location ia great -for business and rooms really well equipped and comfortable. The service is really good at the hotel. The selection at the breakfast buffet is excellent but it was really busy when I was there with long queues for breakfast which isn't ideal if you are on a business trip and tight schedule.
I would definitely stay here again if I were in Singapore for holiday but possibly not for business.
Great location about 1/2 block off Orchard road.
The hotel is clean and non-smoking. We had a great breakfast buffet included with our stay. The buffet had Western, Indian, and Asian selections with great cereal and bread selections.
The room was great and believe it or not a free mini-bar that is refilled everyday. Included one beer and 3 soft drinks. 4 bottles of water and orange drink, with some cookies.
It was a great find!
"One of the most popular location hotels in Singapore!"
Closed to the most popular Ion Plaza only 5 minutes by walking from the hotel, continue walking with another 15 minutes you will reach the most popular Japanese Department Stores. The mini bar in the room is free but not the beer & alcohol products. Front Desk staff were friendly. Good breakfast buffet. This is my first time to stay and we will come back to this hotel in the future.
"You cant beat the free minibar! Very convenient hotel. Breakfast buffet is the best in town!"
What sold me and my family to this hotel is the complimentary minibar and the breakfast buffet. Thanks to YouTube and TTV, I was able to have a glimpse what the hotel is. This is our first time to stay in this hotel. And we are very much impressed!
In Singapore, bottled water and other drinks are premium. My family practically saved about a good $20 per day just for the drinks they will provide daily for free. Then, the breakfast. You don't need to go anywhere as this hotel boasts to have an award winning restaurant right at the ground floor level. They serve from local to international cuisine which will please every palate. If you are in a rush, they can provide you a breakfast to go, free of charge. This made it so convenient and cost efficient for us especially on our last day, which we were in a hurry to the airport.
The premier room is okay. Our quintessentials were met. We have a comfy king bed, a bath tub and a rain type showerhead, and of course, the safe - very important to keep all our passports and the like.
Overall, this hotel gives the best value out of our buck! THE STAFF ARE VERY COURTEOUS AND FRIENDLY. The next time we visit Singapore, we know where to check in and it's this hotel. Kudos and job well done!
"Excellent, would definitely recommend"
This hotel is great. It's comfortable, clean and welcoming. I stayed here in February 2014 with my cousin in a twin room. The room was huge, we had everything you would expect and more. The beds are extremely comfortable and you have a complimentary nespresso machine to use. The bathroom was also large with a waterfall shower and lovely large white towels.
The pool and sauna are great, never too busy and you also get pool towels that are available to use so you don't have to use your own. We didn't eat at the hotel but the food always smelt delicious as we were passing.
It is in a great location, just minutes away from orchard road and multiple shopping centres and the mrt. Overall a fantastic stay in a great hotel.
