“Clarke quay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Hotel ideally located for all of the restaurants and action st Clarke quay just come out of hotel cross road and follow the river to the right for ten minutes.

Bus stop just outside for either normal buses or the hop on hop off bus which we used 30 dollars for two days plus a cruise on the river.

If you get the chance do the cruise At night

Other highlights Singapore flyer (londoneye equivalent) botanic gardens (do this early gets hot after lunch) and well worth 20 sdollars to go to top of marina bay sands hotel (just turn left off hop on hop off bus then when you come down cross the road to the shoppes and promenade on the far side of marina bay)

Stayed here on our way home from Australia. Very good location and about 15 minutes walk down to the Marina with lots to see on the way. Petrol station next door which sells all sort of things you may need or have forgotten, but the staff are very obliging and will help with all kinds of things. We never used the pool as we went out in the morning and returned at night, but it looked fine. Breakfasts were good too, plenty of choice and the staff again were very helpful. They also have a left luggage room which is good if you are flying out at night and want to make the most of your day. There are bus stops outside to various places and Clarke Quay MRT is not far away. Chinatown is a short walk around the side/back of the hotel and I did a lot of my Christmas shopping here. You can also get boats from the quayside nearby. If you want somewhere quiet but also a good city view from your window and a nice room which is clean and comfortable, then this is worth a look.

We stayed 2 nights on route to New Zealand and 2 nights on return to Scotland. Excellent break on such a long flight. Hotel was great. All reception, restaurant, bar, porter and house keeping staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were very good, swimming pool was a joy and the restaurant was just right, excellent service, a self service buffet, excellent meals and an enjoyable breakfast to remember. Very close to China Town, easy walking distance even for a mature couple like us. MRT at China Town, (Underground Station) is proberly the best in the world, clean. trains on time and everyone friendly and helpfull. Puts our underground systems to shame. From the MRT at China Town we were able to travel in complete comfort to Changi and to the Mustafa Centre in Little India. This place is a must to visit. Shoppers delight! Looking foward to our next visit to Singapore and the Miramar Hotel. Oh! and the Botanic Gardens are out of this world, when there, have lunch at the Halia Restaurant, you won't be dissapointed.

We stayed for 2 nights. Given the hotel's website and reviews, I was expecting the hotel to be more conveniently located. While there is a bus stop in front, the hop-on-hop off buses runs on a limited schedule and takes a *very long* time to reach the other side of the city. The shuttle service to Orchard row runs every hour, and there is no service to ChinaTown, contrary to what was listed on the website. The MRT station is far enough on foot that it was hardly pleasant in the 30 degree Celcius heat. After the first day, we relied mainly on taxis to get out of the hotel (and MRT/bus from one tourist spot to another).

That said, the reason I took the time to write this review is because they completely messed up our shuttle reservation to the airport. We took the airport shuttle from the airport to the hotel. We asked the concierge at the hotel if they can help us book the return shuttle; and they said the reception desk now handles shuttle reservations. I was a little surprised; but we went to the reception desk. We stated our flight time and was promptly told we need to arrive 2 hours in advance. Based on this, and the 45min-1 hour travel time estimation they gave, we requested the 4pm shuttle. They said they will make the reservation, but we need to call 2 hours in advance of our shuttle pick-up time for confirmation.

When we called as requested, we were told that the 4pm shuttle was full and they booked us onto the 4:30 shuttle. By their own estimation, they *knew* the 4:30 shuttle will not get us there 2hrs ahead; and yet, they booked us onto it anyway. How incompetent is that? If anything, you'd imagine they'd try for the 3:30pm. At least it will get us there!

To top it off, when we complained, they said they already explained that the reservations can only be made 2 hours ahead and that it was not guaranteed. This was not the impression I was given, considering one needs to have a prior reservation in order to confirm it (i.e. booking happened shortly after I spoke with them), and nowhere in the conversation did the words 'not guaranteed' ever appeared.

We ended up telling them to cancel the shuttle and taking the taxi, which took ~15minutes and is $2 cheaper for our party of 2. My advice to travelers is not to use Miramar hotel's shuttle booking services, or better yet, stay at a hotel closer to everything else.

We were booked for 2 nights but lost one night due to flight connections. However was impressed with out short stay and would stay again. All staff very pleasant and helpful. Room was clean with usual amenities in bathroom but no ironing board. Breakfast was lovely, great selection of hot and cold food. Used the shuttle bus to the shopping area and the hospitality room was handy if you have a late flight as checkout was at midday.
