"Another memorable stay"
I just got back from a quick 5 day visit to Singapore and once again stayed at the Royal Plaza on Scotts. This time in the Royal Club rooms. I booked it through booking.com in September and got a fantastic rate, because I took the "non refundable" option. The Royal Club lounge serves breakfast 7-10am and complimentary afternoon tea 3-5pm and cocktails from 5-8pm. Local phone calls are also free. All are included in the hotel tariff. There is a small selection of hot/cold food and desserts for you too. Well worth getting the discounted rate if you can!
The bar fridge does not have any alcohol, just soft drinks, fruit juice, and nibblies. It does have the small single use milks too. The coffee machine was great, and you had sachets of milo, green tea & black tea too. Ironing board and iron, scales (for you!), slippers, bathrobe, inroom safe, free wifi in room, hair dryer. Bathroom had small bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion and shower gell, soap, tooth brush and paste - all replenished daily. The room had separate bath, shower, vanity & toilet.
The location is just perfect! We took a taxi to the Botanical gardens - just a $5.00 ride, but we could have easily walked to it. Walking to Orchard road for shopping was a breeze, as there is a cross over just about outside the entrance, to be able to cross the road, or you could use the underpasses located on the 4 corners of Orchard Rd & Scotts Rd. Again, a short walk from the hotel. the underpasses also took you the Orchard station of the MRT, where you can travel around most of the city precinct and some outer areas with ease.
You can also walk to the National Museum and Fort Canning Park.
The MRT bus stop is literally outside the front entrance, the SAEx bus also stops there, and this is a tourist bus which does regular trips to the main attractions - eg Zoo, Night Safari, River Safari, Sentosa Island, Botanical Gardens, etc. No need to book, and the hotel has the timetable for you.
Taxi's stop at the front entrance and priority is given to hotel guests. The taxi to and from the airport was $25.00.
The concierge has maps and directions for every attraction in Singapore and can book tours for you as well.
If you are looking for a bit of pampering and want to be close to everything, then I highly recommend you put this hotel on your shopping list!
"Comfortable hotel, great staff and ideal location"
Let's face it, a good hotel is about comfort, friendly and helpfull staff and location when on a city location. The Royal Plaza had all that! The check-in was effecient and un-problematic. The room was very good with a comfortable king-size bed and efficient shower. At Breakfast there was a good choice and pleasant all-round food. The hotel staff also assisted by looking after our bags the following week after we had departed and returned from a cruise before an evening flight. The hotel is ideally placed off a cross-roads from the busy Orchard Road and near to the MRT station which will take you to most of the places you want to see.
TOP TIPS: Beware of busy times on Sundays when locals flock to the main places; Must visit Botanical Gardens and pay nominal fee for entry into Orchid Gardens (within walking distance up Orchard Road); Must visit Singapore River / Marina Bay both at day AND night to fully appreciate; If visiting Raffles Hotel DON'T get off MRT at "Raffles" but at "City Hall" or "Esplanade" for the short walk; take MRT to and from Airport using self-serve ticket machines.
"One of the best place to stay..."
Great place to stay in Orchard road in Singapore, on time schedule pick up and drop off from the airport to the hotel. Great executive suite room package with complimentary breakfast and free access on the lounge, courteous staff very attentive to your needs. They have their own doctor too when I need one to check on my daughter when she got sick due to colds. Carousel restaurant was the best place to eat , the food were fabulous for buffet, though you have to make a reservation if you want to grab a sit. We enjoyed our stay for 5 nights..
"Great place to stay in Singapore"
We used Singapore as a stop-over on a recent trip to Phuket and chose to stay at the Royal Plaza on Scotts based on the reviews on here and the value for this class of hotel.
First impressions were good, impressive entrance and helpful staff. The only downside for us was the size of the room and the outdated feel. But we did not spend much time in the room so was a minor point.
We stayed in a Royal Club Premiere Double Room and had the advantage of using the Royal Club Lounge. This was a great treat with superb quality snacks and beverages in the evenings. The staff in the lounge were very attentive, polite and helpful.
We had one evening dinner in the Carousel Buffet. The food is excellent with great choice. As some reports say, it is quite pricey but we found eating out in Singapore in general to be expensive. So, to put into context, the Carousel is about average in cost with great food!
Some reports say that the location is not great. We found it to be absolutely fine for what we needed. It is a short stroll to Orchard road and yes, it is one high end shopping mall after shopping mall. However, there is also a metro station right on the corner which is so easy, clean and quick to use that we could get anywhere we needed to without much fuss. On the first day we used the open top tour bus to get orientated and to see some of the sights - well worth it if you are here for a short break.
Stayed for 3 nights in Royal Club room.
Big room with queen sized bed, large bathroom with bath and separate shower,complimentary mini bar, free wi-fi, large screen tv.also complimentary, breakfast which was out of this world,, afternoon tea with sandwiches,and a buffet in the evening with complimentary alcoholic drinks if you so wished( no limits).
This was really handy because Singapore is not the cheapest place to eat out, and by using the hotel facilities I saved quite a bit of cash.
But the overriding thing that made this hotel special was the service, attention to detail was tremendous, example, the fridge in my room failed and within 1/2 hour it was swapped with a new one and restocked! The staff are so friendly and willing to please the guests, U.K hotels are not this league. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel, if you really want a carefree stay in Singapore.
"One word - Awesome"
Booked the Royal Club Premier Room for a night as I had the annual dinner & dance to attend nearby. Upon arrival, I was showed to the 15th floor for my check-in formalities. The check-in and out express service at the club lounge was indeed express & fuss-free. The staffs were always with a smile attending to my queries.
Room was worth the price paid. Was spacious enough for 2-3 person and cosy. Even the bathroom was well maintained. Loved that they have a water hose nxt to toilet seat as most hotels do not have this. Bathtub was spotless and was great having a soak and able to watch the tv thru the glass panel.
I got a room with a view i preferred which wasnt facing anything busy (Room 1331). Comfy beds for a gd rest.
The hotel restaurant, Carousel, is popular and thus lobby is a very busy place throughout. So, if you dont mind a busy place, this is where u should stay to be at the town area.
Breakfast at the club lounge is minimal. The noodles i had was still a lil hard. Suggest that you have breakfast at Carousel as there is more choices there and food is more appetizing than the standard of breakfast at the club lounge.
"Fantastic Place to stay in Singapore"
The hotel is well located at the top of Orchard Rd and if you plan on shopping it the place to stay. Service was impeccable and friendly. We stayed in the Premiere suite and I would absolutely recommend the extra for this. You get unlimited Nespresso coffee and soft drinks included. Along with a private common lounge to use when ever you want also with free drinks included. Breakfast buffet was amazing and again all inclusive. It's a short walk to the MRT so you aren't far from anywhere. Totally enjoyed our stay and will be back
The hotel just had some renovation done and everything looks new and clean. Receptionists were helpful and friendly, although the person who helped us with our luggage was a little nonchalant. Our room is clean and quite small (which is normal here). Best part is that the mini bar (the tiny fridge) is complementary! Everything in there is free. Not only that, there's also complementary nespresso coffee and the machine for us to use. The toiletries they provided was fantastic - it's L'Occitane! There's also a separate bath tub and standing shower, which is really hygienic I think. Would definitely stay here again.
"Still a little hidden Gem in Orchard! Best sleep in a busy City!"
I stumbled upon this hotel a few years ago and my family and I have been staying here whenever we stopover in Singapore (probably 3-4 times annually). The renovation at the entrance has finally complete - it gave the hotel a nicer facade. The hotel is in a great location for shopping, food, and transport. I discovered just last week there is a yoga centre in the building next door and they offer day passes - brilliant. The hotel staff are always friendly (esp the housekeeping and front office staff). The complimentary coffee and bar treats - a nice touch. Breakfast at the Carousel is amazing and child friendly. My tip would be - book early and enjoy some of their promotional / mystery deals And - if you're fortunate enough to get upgraded or can afford to pay a little more for the royal club rooms - it's worth the experience. If you have a late flight departing - you can leave your luggage at the hotel - carry on with your shopping/sightseeing and use their shower facilities on the 5th floor before heading to the airport! Have a pleasant stay!
I have just stayed at this hotel and can recommend this hotel for any form of stay in Singapore. Perfectly located on the west side of Orchard Rd directly opposite Orchard MRT.
I received a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room that was spacious and well equipped. Wifi worked perfectly and free mini bar (soft drink / water / biscuits / chocolate) is stocked daily. Nespresso coffee machine is in room with 3 pods of coffee a day. Very comfortable bed with good selection of pillows.
There is a nice pool adjacent to the gym. The gym is well equipped with running machine but doesn't stick any free weights.
24 hour Starbucks coffee shops 10 meters from the hotel entrance.
One of our best staycations. Staff always has a smile on their faces and very friendly, too. We were pleasantly surprised that we got the higher floor with joint-rooms (as per what we requested on the survey). Rooms were also very clean and well-maintained. Will definitely choose RP again in the future. Thank you for the amazing experience!
Check in was very efficient. Complimentary wifi and minibar supplies were a pleasant surprise. Reception and concierge always willing to help even before being asked.

The Royal Plaza On Scotts Hotel, near to Orchard Road, Singapore is indeed an excellent hotel to stay, be it for business or tourism. The name itself has something to do with royalty, so they must keep a good name of the hotel.

Taxi is quite easy to get in front of the foyer and there will be concierge personnel helping out.

Travel by taxi is not really expensive but one must travel after the peak hours and avoid extra surcharges.

They can be found at the 2 shops on the same level as the pedestrian bridge.

For taxi ride anywhere to your prefered destinations will not exceed Singapore Dollar 20.00. All in all, Royal Plaza On Scotts Hotel is certainly an excellent hotel to stay.
"Comfortable room and strategic location"
Rooms in Spore are generally expensive. I found the Royal Plaza value for money given it's location so close to Orchard area and MRT. Nothing to fault. Room was clean and comfortable. Nepresso machine and freebies in mini bar were a nice bonus. We didnt eat at the hotel; many food options in surrounding area. Shaw Centre next door was great to catch a movie on a wet rainy day.
Staying here till 9 Dec, fantastic service, comfortable, very clean room. Enjoying the free in-room Nespresso and comp mini bar. Excellent value for money for location and service.
Very enjoyable. Our room was very comfortable, and the the staff was very warm and capable.
"Friendly, clean and perfect spot"
I stayed their in a work trip from November 17 till 24th. I really enjoyed my stay their, the staff is very friendly and the place is clean and the mini bar is free and refilled each time I consume any thing in it. There's a subway station next to it from which I could go any way. If you're a shopping addict it's the best place as it's right in Orchard road where you can find tens of shopping malls.
The only thing I didn't like their was the food, it's not the best that you can find.
Lovely hotel. Very good facilities in the room. Pleasant and helpful staff. Good breakfast.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you! Room excellent, Staff excellent, Pool excellent. Would recommend to all of our friends! Thank you so much for accommodating us in your beautiful Hotel.
