We go way back M Hotel
I have had many experiences at M Hotel. First almost a decade ago when i was in College and we had a crazy party. I think they had a rock wall back in those days, not sure if they still do. It was fun and the rooms were very very nice a decade ago.
Then i grew up a little and they revamped their bar to be know as J Bar. It was a chic little space with a balcony and seating area that overlooks the ports. Pretty cool secret place that i will bring my dates here for a drink or two. A few years later my cousin even had her engagement party here!
I grew up a little more and one of my friends got married here. It was very decent, nothing over the top or terrible but just a very decent wedding, not too grand but not too shabby.
I stayed here a few months back once again and today, i think the room rates are very decent and the rooms still pretty much look the same like it was a decade ago. Well maintained though and still very decent today and i had a good stay over here.
I have to agree their services is nothing to scream about.
i guess this is a very good business hotel. Not too sure why it is listed as a boutique hotel because there is nothing boutique about it.
Finally, i have never had the chance to try their breakfast but perhaps i will next time seeing the rave review someone gave below.
A hotel for business travellers
Been in Singapore on a business trip, I was happy to be in this hotel for many reasons. The location within walking distance to the MRT is a plus point. Plus, it's located in a central location where business people alike wouldn't have any problems to roam around as everything is within short distance.
Travel-wise, I don't really think this place suits tourists and leisure travellers. All the city hype and buzz aren't any near this hotel.
The check-in process was smooth and I was relieved to see that there aren't many crowds lingering around.
Nothing spectacular about the room, unfortunately. The decorations are minimal and basic. But I had a very good sleep throughout the whole night, thanks to their super comfy bed and fluffy pillows. I will doze off in seconds after a long day at work.
No doubt, I will always choose this hotel for my next business trip.
M Hotel's J Bar, the best place to unwind
From a couple of years back, it has become a 'tradition' amongst my group of friends and I to book a room at M Hotel to crash after the countdown to a New Year to avoid having to face the problem of getting a cab to go home. We would party at Clarke Quay then take a slow drunken walk back to the hotel since it was relatively close-by. With the many visits, I felt a sense of familiarity about the place since many fond memories with my friends have been built there.
And on one occasion just last year, I was feeling down and stressed out, I decided to visit J Bar alone. I ordered a giant martini to drown my sorrows. As I started tearing while having my drink, a friendly bartender started a conversation with me. I was a mess and he allowed me to confide in him. He even waived off my bill! I admire his attitude at work and would definitely pay him a visit soon!
Fun and modern :)
I went there for a small Xmas gathering few weeks back and the stay was great.
The whole place is just so pretty and modern.
I stayed at the studio loft that comes with 2 levels and we had a great time taking pictures! The stairs, table and deco all looked new and stylish. Comes with a fridge and two beds. One above and one below.
We also went down to the pool area and it looks really cosy and pretty. There are also many comfortable seats around where you can enjoy small talks or camwhore with friends.
However there are a few things to note though.
1) Room is quite small. I think it is best for a stay of 4 pax. They aren't so particular if you exceed the maximum pax but you would have to keep the volume down (point 2).
2) You can party there but no loud music. The rooms are very near each other thus you might be advised to keep the volume down at times. Or sometimes, you might hear noise coming from other rooms.
3) The main thing that bothered me was their small bathroom. There is no space for me to put my clothes without getting them wet. For people with claustrophobia, you might have to book other types of rooms.
I really love m hotel's layout and design will definitely come back for more stays!
Not a bad place, I recently had a staycation there - courtesy of my friend who hosted a birthday party there - and enjoyed every moment of it. Unlike most hotels, the main thing here that stuck out most to me was the food rather than the service or room. You hear horror stories about hotel food all the time. Rest assured, you won't get that here.
I was so surprised at the quality of food here. True, it wasn't exactly Michelin-star gourmet cuisine, but it was pretty darn close. The breakfast buffet had such a wide spread of options; anything from nasi lemak to marmalade toast can be found there. And if you fancy something, just tell the waiter and he'll be happy to pass on the request on to the chef for only a nominal feel.
A food hotel, if nothing else.
Great stay but service needs to be improved on
I would have rated M Hotel 100% if their service level is better. Upon checking in, the service staffs at the counter did not greet or smile at all. Honestly speaking, I didn't feel valued as a guest. To make things worse, when one of the service staffs had finished serving the previous guest, she did not even usher me to go over when I was in another queue. If I hadn't looked around, I would not have realised that the other counter was empty already!
However, I have to give a thumbs up for the quality of their guest rooms and hotel facilities. I especially love the jacuzzi at the swimming pool! I hit the gym as well, and was pleased to see that the equipments were well-maintainted.
The location is great too, there are a few nice eateries nearby. After we were back from our dinner, we wanted to get a wine opener from the concierge. Upon seeing that we were looking around, the bell boy glanced at us and hurriedly walked away. Again, I don't think this is the kind of service level that we should expect from the hospitality industry.
Overall, I would say paying $190 for a night at M Hotel is rather worth it. But the experience would be more completed with a better service level.
Located in the CBD area, I would not have given M Hotel a second look if I were to pass by it from the outside. However, once stepping into the lobby, the lush environment looked comfortable and refreshing. Check in was swift for me, and the lady serving me was polite and efficient.
When i got to my room, I was really surprised at how spacious the room (Deluxe) was. There was a sofa and working desk for the businessmen guests, and pillows were fluffy and soft. There was also an ipod/iphone dock where you could plug in your device and it would play your choice of songs while charging your device! The toilet was clean and room service was pretty efficient. Our requests for a change of towels was met with promptness and a smile.
The only downside to M Hotel was that television channels were limited and there was static so the shows were not clear. Perhaps it's a problem with the connectivity?
The swimming pool at M Hotel looked really inviting although it was a tad bit too small. Breakfast buffet had quite a number of choices which surpassed my expectations.
Great service touches from the staff
M Hotel is one of the hotels on my favourites list. The room is really spacious and the room was adequately furnished with a couch, table for writing, a nice view of the port, a super comfy bed. When i check in the hotel, the room was not ready for me and i was given a free drink at the coffee counter while i was asked to wait. this was a great move but the staff did not follow up perfectly by coming to inform me that the room is ready. Well, a little mistake in a otherwise great room was still acceptable to me. The staff was even able to accommodate my request to hook up my laptop to the TV although the TV had been set to hotel mode. This was a really pleasant touch to their service as most hotels simply tell me that it is preset and nothing can be done. Kudos to M Hotel for this extra touch. Room service provided a wide variety of choice, but food was usually lukewarm by the time it reach. Breakfast was relatively simple, as i expected the spread to be much bigger for a hotel like this. Overall, it was a great stay and kudos to the staff.
