"Singapore after 30yrs"
We hadnt been to singapore for 30yrs, WOW what a difference, it was fantastic and so clean!.
We were lucky enough to get an upgrade to the club lounge which made our time even more enjoyable, the afternoon tea and evening drinks really cut down on what we had to spend elsewhere and the staff were lovely. A good place to stay.
"Another Great Staycation."
Had a one night staycation over the weekend at RP on Scotts. Check-in was prompt and fast. I was being greeted with a polite and warm smile of the customer service officer. To my surprise, I was given a free upgrade from deluxe to the Royal Club Premier. (they really mean it when they say that they will try their best to accommodate on our request in their pre-check in form!)
The room is clean and spacious. The all-time free mini bar is a thumb-up. Very comfortable pillows and king-sized bed. The bathroom consist of a separate shower area and bathtub, with L'occitane toiletries. Everything was flawless but the only major problem was I couldn't get a good night sleep as the opposite room was making alot of noise, I think a group of teenagers were having a celebration from 8pm till 2am. They were laughing n talking along the corridors and fetching friends from the lobby at every hour. I was so closed to call the security but Ive decided to just let it rest.
The breakfast spread was so good, spoilt for choices. The check- out was fast too. Overall, all staff are very friendly from front desk to housekeeper. Can' t wait for my next stay at RP, hopefully I will be able to sleep without any other guest disturbances.
"Extremely happy with stay"
Stayed 7 nights, can't fault anything. Found all staff to be very friendly, helpful and always greeted with a hello by everyone we passed. Concierge was excellent, rooms were clean. Very enjoyable stay!
We had a lovely 8 day stay at royal plaza on scotts, our room on the 11th floor was great, free mini bar and wifi. room were spotless every day when we returned from our outings, breakfast had plenty of variety and was delicious. only wish we had tried the seafood buffet which looked amazing. thanks for a great stay . the foyer of the hotel was very decorated beautifully , very opulent.
"Royal Plaza Pleasure"
We stayed in the Royal Plazza twice on out trip for 4 days and for 2 days later. There were no ongoing renovations when we first arrived on the 30th of July, and the hotel was in very good condition. We arrived at 10.20am so didn't expect the room to be ready, but the receptionist said to return at 11.00am and it would be ready, so we left the suitcases and bags and just walked 400 yards down the road to he ION shopping area. no problem to occupy ourselves, the room was ready when we returned at 12.00. The premiere room was spacious and clean , and the free mini bar is a nice touch. The showers are powerful, and the bathroom restocked every day. The 6th floor has the pool and gym, which were both fine. The breakfast was brilliant, such a wide choice to select from, Western and Asian. The food was very good quality and if you need anything different the staff will try hard to accommodate you. special mention to Janet who was absolutely brilliant.
On our second visit the hotel upgraded us to the Royal Club lounge rooms so we had complimentary afternoon tea, and evening cocktails which were excellent, thanks.
The location for us was brilliant as it was 5 minutes walk to the MRT at Orchard Road, but you will to to use the underpass which has work going on, but no problem. We used the MRT everyday and even used it for the visit to the Zoo, along with bus ride.
Overall the hotel was great value for an expensive city, i would definitely use the hotel again no problem.
Stayed here for 3 nights last June, during family holiday.
I had read review that this hotel was being renovated. Luckilly, it's done already, when I arrived, so no complain about renovation going on.
We arrived at about 11 AM, can't get into my room since check in time is 14.00. It's not a problem since I can leave my luggages in concierge and went out for a quick getaway in Sentosa. This hotel has great location, nearby MRT, restaurant, food court, shopping centre.
My son was very happy when finally we checked in later in the evening, due to it's spacious room and minibar compliments (2 bottle of orange juice, biscuits, carbonated drink & tiger beer).
For the bathroom, the shower cubicle is separated from it's bathtub, quite spacious bathroom, with clean towels, complete bathroom amenities.
To my delights, there's also Nespresso machine with 6 capsule/day. Beautiful compliment.. I used it everyday..:D
Breakfast was excellent, so many varieties in Carousel restaurant. It has Japaneses stall, Chinese stall (love their dimsum), Indian stall, Western corner, tempting beautiful pastries, fresh salads, fruits. Carousel has received "BEST BUFFET restaurant in 5 consecuteive years" and I do think thery deserve it.
Will recommend & come back again.
In short: great location, nice staffs, great rooms, great breakfast.
"One Word: Excellent !!!"
It is located at the Scotts Road. It is just walking distance to Orchard MRT station and Orchard Road.
2. Check-in & Check-out
It was crowded especially checking-out in the morning. Apparently, the shift change happen at 7am and there is only a staff at the counter. It shall be reviewed since it is busy time in the morning.
Although the room is small, you get what you want.
Carosel at the hotel serve one of the best buffets in town.
The life is programmed such as way that one of the lifts (four of them) always go back to the ground floor which is very convenient to the guests.
Service was impeccable right from the moment I was at the front desk for check-in. Despite being so busy, each personnel greeted us with enthusiasm and sincerity. I would like to especially highlight Najeeb and his team whom provided exceptional service during cocktail hours last night, 6 Sept 2014. They were attentive, friendly and were always willing to provide service above and beyond expectations. They noticed almost immediately when our plates or glasses were empty and constantly ensured my guest and I were comfortable. Although the room wasn't fantastic or very new, the service more than made up for these shortcomings. I would definitely consider coming back to the Royal Plaza on Scotts
The room on the premiere floor was great! We were pleasantly surprised by the free mini bar and especially love having Nespresso machine in our room! Will definitely come back based on the lovely room!
Each time we visit Singapore, I investigate a lot of hotels but always come back to RP on Scotts. Great staff, great location, easy for transport and generally a very easy stay. No outlook from most of the rooms and no bar, but otherwise just great. The Club lounge is very good
I arrived in Singapore and stayed here for 2 nights from 9 Aug- 11 Aug. I was not aware that I arrived on Singapore's National Day which is a major event for the country. The staff at the hotel gave me the best advice and information on what I could do and how I can get to the main event in Marina Sands.
The hotel room a great size and offered a free mini bar. It also provided me with all the essentials and staff were able to assist me with all my requests. The hotel is only across the road from the MRT station and there is a bus terminal in front of the hotel which makes transport around the city very easy.
I would definitely stay here again next time I return to Singapore.
"Definitely will come back !!!!!"
What a hotel?! I fell in love with it the moment I entered the lobby, lovely lobby. After a loooong flight from Oz to here through KUL, we were so pleased to arrive and find our room ready. Beds are comfortable, room is clean, nice amenties and a modern designed room. We also had the minibar for free along with my favourite nespresso machine and coffee.
Breakfast was good, however as a cheese fan I would love to see a variety of cheese in there. But the hi-tea was SUPER!!!
Staff is really friendly especially the bell boys who greet us when entering the hotel.
Location is central just in the middle of the Orchard road. Actually, I would come back to Singapore next time to enjoy a longer stay @ this hotel.
"Great location and service"
This hotel is on Scotts road walking distance to all the shopping malls on Orchard road. The hotel is very good, the staff are friendly and very helpful. The room was great, big comfortable bed, very clean, and best of all no cigarette smells! The rain shower was great way to relax after a long flight or day walking around Orchard.
A little bit expensive but it is worth it, you get what you pay for.
"Very good business hotel"
Stayed in this hotel twice in 2013 for business (it was recommended by the company I work for). It is nicely located on Orchard Road (which contains a lot of shops).
The hotel has a very good breakfast buffet (enormous selection of food from all different sort of cuisines). I also had the buffet dinner one evening where the choices were even bigger.
You can see a wide variety of business and also families staying at this hotel.
"Central location with good customer service"
It's situated right in Orchard with a few minutes walk to shopping malls. The room is clean, tidy, well equipped, comfortable beds and free mini bar. The staff possess excellent customer service and it's a pleasure to stay
"Better service than Marina Bay Sands Hotel"
So unbelievably happy with this hotel. Our flight to Singapore was changed to an earlier flight and the Royal Plaza's staff welcomed us very early and allowed my partner and myself to sit in the Royal club lounge with a free breakfast (that wasn't included in our 4 night stay). The staff made us feel comfortable until they had a room ready for us at 9.30am which was around 4.5 hours before check-in. The hotel hasn't got the 'wow' factor in its appearance, but the rooms were very comfortable and clean and to top it off the mini bar was free! Because we booked a room within the Royal Club rooms, we had access to the Royal Club Lounge throughout the stay which had complimentary afternoon tea snacks and cocktails, and better yet, offered free breakfast (which was delightful if you couldn't be bothered dealing with the busy carousel restaurant in the morning). It should be noted that the Carousel buffet is one to definitely experience, just make sure you book.
The staff knew our faces well, always greeted us and were very helpful.
Also, you cannot fault the location of this hotel. It is right off orchard road (lots and lots of shopping), and most tourist buses drop you out the front of the hotel or on the other side of the road.
It just has to be said that we stayed at Marina Bay Sands 2 nights after staying here, and honestly, we were just another number there. The hospitality experienced at the Royal Plaza on Scotts was just amazing in comparison.
From a very late checkin( after midnight) until post checkout we experienced friendly, professional, attentive, kind service. It seems everything is a pleasure for them to do for you and they go out of their ways to be helpful. We stayed in the Club rooms which were spacious, very comfortable and understated.
The breakfast had plenty of choice. Afternoon tea and cocktail hour were great. Our airport pickup was not until 6.30 pm, hours after our late checkout, but we were made feel still welcome and made comfortable.
"Value for money"
Really can't fault this hotel, location is excellent, that was the main reason we booked it however everything else was great too. Rooms are good, clean with great showers & comfy beds (slept really well) & nice to have the free mini bar.
We were on the 13th floor so had access to the Royal Club Lounge which gave us the option of having breakfast there plus complimentary afternoon tea & cocktails which we enjoyed.
Staff were friendly & helpful.
Wish we had have visited the Carousel restaurant as it has excellent reviews but didn't have time this visit, next time.....
"Value for Money!"
Fantastic location for shopping right opposite ION Mall. Very clean, modern and excellent facilities at the hotel. The staff catered for all our needs. We ate at Carousel - excellent buffet dinner comprising Seafood, Asian and Italian cuisine absolutely fantastic. On our last night we ate at the Asian Tapas Restaurant. Both restaurants at Royal Plaza on Scotts had the best food and from my experience I would say even better than some of the restaurants at Marina Bay Sands and of course even cheaper! Would recommend staying at Royal Plaza on Scotts on your way to Europe on returning from your Europe holiday it is a great hotel!
"This is the best hotel I ever stay before"
The breakfast is excellent, the room is big and tidy with free minibar, fruits and cakes, it was so surprising. Also the location is very convenient, the staffs are helpful and friendly. I will come back to stay here if I travel to Singapore again.
