My favourite hotel in Singapore - I will stay nowhere else
Swissotel Merchant Court
View from Clarke Quay

First, let me just say that I loved this hotel so much after staying here in June that I actually cancelled my previously-made booking at another hotel for when my partner and I returned to Singapore in mid-July to re-book with this one, as I simply could not imagine staying anywhere else!

The location is utter perfection, with all the restaurants, lights and vibrancy of Clarke Quay right opposite, over a short and lovely bridge. The hotel itself is blissfully peaceful and also a leisurely walk to nearby bustling Chinatown or a riverfront stroll to Boat Quay. The incredibly efficient public transport system is excellent and there are several metro stations nearby, including Clarke Quay Station which is literally right next door.

The staff were consistently wonderful and amazingly friendly, helpful and lovely. After a hot day exploring Singapore, strolling into the spacious and sophisticated but welcoming foyer and its cool air conditioning is blissful.

The hotel and the rooms themselves are beautifully appointed and spacious.

Our June visit saw us upgraded to a family room with private balcony overlooking the beautiful pool area.

Our July stay had us upgraded again to a top floor king room with the most amazing sweeping views of Marina Bay Sands and all the lights of the Downtown area.

On our last day in June, our flight to London was not until midnight and after we checked out that morning, the hotel stored our bags for us all day and then after dinner, the lovely staff let us access the guests' private spa area so we could have a shower and get changed in private for the airport. It made all the difference to our comfort level and really made us feel so valued and appreciated.

I LOVE this place and will always stay here when in Singapore.
