This hotel is one of the rare ones that retained vintage settings and furnitures. Hotels in Singapore are now frequently cluttered with intricate designs everywhere. They contain unique furnitures with confusing structures. I staycationed at hotel in Singapore that had what seemed to look like a chair. Unfortunately, the design was so complex, it seemed somewhat like centuries till I finally discovered how this furniture should be used.
Even the interior designs in hotels now differed as it becomes more infused with the word ‘modernism’. The carpets had intricate designs on it. One glance at it and I almost went cock-eyed. This modernizing transformations aren’t all bad. They actually boosted the appeal and curious factors for most of the hotels. I certainly was intrigued.
Fortunately, it felt like a breath of fresh air when I stumble upon a room that had simplicity scrolled all over. The rooms at Swissotel looked like the classic rooms that I would conjure up in my mind if someone asked me to imagine what a typical hotel should look like. This hotel has efficient services. The amenities available there are aplenty too. Swissotel is certainly the hotel to sought after if you’re seeking for classic coziness.
Swissotel the Stamford is WAY over-rated. I stayed in the classic room, and honestly I expected A LOT more for the rate I was paying for. Isn't Singapore supposed to be one of the countries with the better hotels in the world? To begin, the toilet bowl really stinks; it reeks of the poop smell (?).
Also, the sensor for the tv remote or the tv (whichever) was really off. I literally had to prance around the room, remote in hand, to either adjust the volume, switch the channels or on/off the television. It was really a CHORE to watch television.
The view from my room was kinda blocked by this huge office building but nevertheless, still pretty magnificient. If possible, try to request for a room that is not on the same side as the swimming pool, because that was where my room was. Also, it was during the Chinese New Year celebrations and the fireworks display was at the OTHER side so i saw NOTHING. I could only hear and see the reflections of the fireworks against the other buildings. :'(
Typical 5 star hotel
This is the stereotypical 5 star hotel with impeccable service and comfortable rooms. This hotel like most 5 star hotel have chosen to take the beaten path. I am going to risk sounding like a brat by labeling it as well just boring. It has no character. It doesn't stand out. Nothing sets it apart from the next 5 star hotel.
However, for those of you who are just looking for a nice comfortable room to spend the night, this is the place for you. Plus, it has a very convenient location and is a mere walk away from the shopping district and from the MRT.
Wonderful service and room worthy of being a 5 star hotel!
I was dead beat after planning for weeks, researching on different hotel rates, location and value-for-money just to find a suitable place to celebrate the 2nd anniversary with my other half. Finally decided on staying in Swissotel the Stamford since there was a promotion for a 2D1N stays on weekends for locals, paying $200+ for a classic room with buffet breakfast for two, which was a real deal for a 5-star hotel in Singapore.
After a happening day at Sentosa, followed by a sumptuous dinner at Carousel, we only managed to check-in to the hotel at 11pm, a rather late timing by normal hotel check-in standards. The check-in process was smooth and fast, taking less than 5 minutes but that might be just due to the timing. No one else other than us was checking in then. Being a typical Singaporean, having to check-in at 11pm and to adhere to the standard 12 noon check-out timing the following morning, makes me feel that my money would not be well-spent. Tried to ask for a late check-out at the front desk, which was promptly agreed upon, allowing me to check-out at 3pm instead! Good service indeed.
The allocated room was on the 54th floor, clean and spacious even with the king-sized bed and a small work-station. Didn’t smell any traces of cigarettes since I specifically requested for a non-smoking room (I’ve a rather allergic nose). The balcony view was fantastic, facing towards the bustling city night lights and a diagonal view of the iconic MBS (Marina Bay Sands) in the far distance. However, the balcony was small and narrow, barely able to fit two adults standing there to enjoy the view.
The buffet breakfast the next morning was alright, probably due to have buffet dinner the night before and hence, stomach was not really in the mood for vast food intake again. The variety was pretty much comprehensive, rather from cereals, fruits and different types of bread to cooked food and dim sum. The lobster har gow (shrimp dumpling) was worth a mention, with the soft and translucent skin melting in the mouth. To be honest, I couldn’t differentiate between normal prawn fillings with the claimed lobster fillings though. There was also a live station serving different types of eggs, scrambled, omelette, sunny side-up or over easy.
All in all, I would love to stay at Swissotel the Stamford again if they have similar promotions in future.
