4 day stop over
After a very relaxing 8 days in Phuket we had a 4 day stop over in Singapore and our hotel choice was again the Merchant Court in Clarke Quay. Why do we keep coming back to it when there are plenty of other hotels??... well for us it's location location , right on Clarke Quay MRT and walking distance to Chinatown shops, food centres, multitude restaurants on Clarke Quay to choose from plus bars and nite life it's central to all our needs and reasonably priced . And when you have enough of all that , there's the large pool you can chill in . The hotel and lobby has been totally refurbished since our last stay with more pleasing decor which was nice to see. And whilst our room had the much appreciated Nespresso coffee machine and free iPhone / iPad ( we didn't need this as know our way around pretty well), the one thing that was missing for me was a USB port , unless I just didn't find it ...whereas our hotel in Phuket had 4 USB ports !! This for a very techno savy country was disappointing. Staff all very friendly and nothing is an issue and is quickly resolved . I did check out 2 other hotels in the area whilst I was there ,but they just didn't tick the boxes hence for us the Merchant Court is our choice . Hope this helps you when choosing your next hotel.

Amazing base for a stay in Singapore
We stayed for 9 nights in Feb/Mar while on holiday in Singapore for the first time and it couldn’t have been a better base. We had one of the Premier Rooms (580) which had a king bed. They have a full pillow menu available including being able to request a mattress topper (this is a must unless you like a very hard bed). The room was spacious and the air-conditioning works well. The room has blackout drapes, a usable fridge with a minibar, an in-room safe and bathrobes and slippers. The room also comes with a Handy phone – basically a mobile phone which includes free international calls, internet services outside the hotel and access to big savings on all the attractions around Singapore. We saved heaps by buying our tickets using this phone. You get 2 complimentary bottles of water every day. The swimming pool is excellent and it’s lovely to cool down after a long day. The only negatives are that the bath is over the shower and it is quite high to get in and out of. Also, the breakfast is on the expensive side as a drinks in the bar (although this is standard across Singapore). The location of the hotel is amazing – right in the heart of Clarke Quay. The Clarke Quay MRT (train station) is directly across the road in Clarke Quay Central, or there is another entry to the station behind the hotel. Overall, we would rate this hotel a 9 out of 10 as it was very comfortable, quiet and you couldn’t beat the location. We will definitely return.

The perfect hotel for our trip to Singapore!
The Swissotel Merchant Court was the perfect hotel for our trip to Singapore. The location is perfect for exploring all the major sites either within walking distance or via the MRT, with the station a couple of minutes away from the hotel. It is situated in the Clarke Quay area which is perfect for nightlife, restaurants in the evening. The team at the hotel made note of me and my partners special anniversary and made the day extra special. The team at the hotel were always very helpful throughout our stay. The room was well sized with all the required amenities. The pool was relaxed and the perfect place to cool off after a day of seeing the sights! Breakfast was varied to reflect Singaporean Cuisine and there really was a great variety of tasty dishes as well as more traditional breakfast items! Also included was a smartphone for our use whilst in Singapore, which we could use in the room and take out and about with us. It was ideal for using to navigate around and we could also make calls back to the UK at no extra charge!! This was the first time I’ve ever had anything like this from a hotel! I cannot commend the Swissotel enough and would be delighted to stay there again in the future!

Very Good 8.0
Wonderful and convenient location, old cosy hotel.
It is really in a very convenient location, can walk out to Clark Quay and shopping mall, nearby MRT station, a lot of taxies so you don't need to wait for a long queue, etc. However, one thing to improve is the room condition. the 1st room I got had noise from the elevator so I changed the room. The 2nd room was bigger and quite, but the water pressure was so weak. It took too long time to take a fine shower. The water pressure issue is something they definitely need to work on as I heard from my friend stayed in a different room also had the same issue. You know how you want to have a nice shower after a long day of humid weather in Singapore. Other than that, the staff is kind and friendly. Comfortable sofa in the lobby area. Safe and clean around the hotel and you can even go out midnight without having a bodyguard. The hotel structure is a bit like a maze but i think that is fun. Did not have a break package so I cannot tell. Basically, it is an old hotel, so if you prefer a very modern style, you might not be so impressed with it. But if you are looking for a convenient location and relatively reasonable price range, and you want to enjoy hanging around late night walk and drinks at bars,etc, it will be a good choice.
