Run down place and the brothel on the second floor is a depressing/shameful place with sex slaves brought in from all over South East Asia. A very sad sight indeed.

A really ordinary place which I will try hard to avoid next time I am in Singapore. The staff were very pleasant and let me check in very early, but the room was grubby. It was an unrefurbished room, but that didn't mean that it had to be so unloved. I ended up telling my daughter not to touch the curtains, because every time they were moved, billows of old dust erupted from them. A hostess bar for decrepit Chinese gentleman tourists was off the main lobby.

I didn't take the breakfast. Newton Hawker market is 5 minutes walk away, and open for breakfast. I did try the Bakuteh pork soup lunch set at the restaurant one day and it was fantastic.

The pool was the high point of the stay. Spacious, clean, swimming with the stars above, and the sound of the traffic below was a nice way to finish up the day.

A real mixed bag this hotel. If it was cleaner, I would give it a 3 or 4 easily.

Room Tip: Make sure it is a refurbished room, maybe you might have more luck than me.

Was not thrilled... Hotel needs some refurbishing.. Rooms are not in a good shape.. Very cold AC and hard mattresses... Had a hard time to get internet connection, which was finally discovered at the lobby in old computers with tokens... It had a gentlemen's club as part of the amenities... So-so food.. But the price was right for all above. I guess if you are not planning to spend much time in the Hotel it might be very economical decision to stay there as lots of other places in Singapore are very VERY pricy.

I stayed there for only a night for my biz trip. The hotel is virtually old hotel but clean. It is far to Orchard Road but it is good if you like to exercise by walking to it. Breakfast is so so...room is very big but old design and you can smell old stuffs once you get in to the room. Taxi is not easy to get although the concierge has already put a signal for taxi to come. What I can conclude this is a so so hotel for everything but at least it is a safe hotel.....

I stayed at the Hotel Royal Singapore for 4 nights with my mother and we were extremely disappointed with our stay. Our room on the 13th floor was very run down - it had a horrible musty smell, the carpet was frayed, the towels and bath maths were torn, the bedsheets looked dirty, and the two chairs in the room were SO dirty, we didn't even want to sit on them!! Housekeeping was the worst - they couldn't even make the beds properly! We had to complain that they hadn't even swept the bathroom floor, and even after complaining they didn't do it! We also asked them to change the chairs in our room so that we could have a place to sit apart from the bed (!!) and they didn't do that either. Breakfast was extremely average - the breakfast area is very small and with so many guests, it takes forever to get your food! Most of the food was cold and there were ants in the danish pastries!! The *only* good thing about this hotel is it's location - it's about a 7-10 minute walk to the Novena MRT and there is a bus stop right outside the hotel, and it's also close by to some malls. I would never ever recommend this hotel to anyone, - my mom and I were depressed to come back to the hotel every evening! We paid WAY too much for such a run down place.
