The four of us stayed here on our visit to singapore. The front desk lady charged or room deposit instead of merely taking a credit card number to charge later in case of damages (this was against policy I discovered later). We stayed in a room with a queen bed and two bunk beds, ensuite bathroom, plus a small balcony. The room was clean and comfortable - all features functioned properly. The location is far from the main areas of the city and on the other side of singapore from the airport. A subway station is about 10-15 minutes walk away. A bus stop is directly in front of the guesthouse. It's a solid 30 minute trip away from little india or little china. Being a hostel we had concerns about noise at night but were not bothered by any. We did not utilize the breakfast option but did eat at the restaurant across the street and found it acceptable. On checkout I found that they could not refund the deposit. After working with the manager over the next several days she refunded the deposit to me via paypal instead of a credit to my original card. That was not desirable at all, but was the best she said she could do. On the whole this was a nice stay, I only advise you to be cautious about your room deposit.

Price: We were here during the super peak Lunar New Year period for a week. This was the only hotel in this area that didn't triple their room prices. That means their management is a fair one. Room: To be really honest, the room wasn't in the best shape. The paint on the bath tub was peeling, and the air-conditioning was the really old, centralized kind that it's always either too hot or too cold, you can't really control it. However, the silver lining was that it was spacious enough (19sqm compared to most other hotels at this price range are 14sqm or less), and for sgd100 in Singapore during a super peak period, we can't complain. Just be wise and bring your own shampoo/conditioner/shower gels. Otherwise, they do provide the good ol' bar of soup and fresh towels, if that's all you need for a simple shower. Service: Most of the staff were lovely, probably because they are older and fatherly, and were more than happy to recommend us places to visit and helping us book taxis. Vincent remembered our names and greeted us warmly every other day (because he works every other day), and even showed us his family photos, helping us with the food and baby chairs for our kids. Really sweet guy. Breakfast: It's always stir-fried bee hoon (thin rice vermicilli) on Tue/Thu/Sat and fried rice on Mon/Wed/Fri/Sun. On top of that, one egg and one sausage, free flow toast, coffee and tea. It's supposed to end at 930am (or 10am on holidays? I can't remember), but they start clearing up by 925am. If you meet the nicer staff, they'll still get you some food. If not, there's always 7/11 nearby. Location/Food: Most who chose to stay here was for its walking distance to NUS (National University of Singapore), or just a few bus stops away from NUH (National University Hospital), or that that they work in the marine line where they need to visit the ports along Pasir Panjang Road just few minutes away. Having said that, this location is God-send for us because it's hard to find food in most neighbourhoods this time of the year (most Chinese stallowners will be on a break!) but not here! Just a 100 metres walk away is a stretch of eateries and stores --- the Chinese Hong Kong restaurant ran by China Chinese, the two prata shops ran by Malays and Indians, and even the Thai store was open throughout this festive season. We were also thankful that 7-11 was open 24/7 throughout too. If you're into exploring the less known places in Singapore, steering away from the usual touristy recommendations, here's a fab list that's really close to this hotel (all of them less than 2 kilometres away): - Pasir Panjang Vegetable Wholesale (and the hawker food centre nearby) - Haw Par Villa - Singapore Yacht Club - NUS LKC Natural History Museum (awesome find!) - Vivocity and the connecting Sentosa, Universal Studios Singapore are indeed touristy, but they're pretty near too, 10-minutes ride away.

The overall feeling of the hotel is very good, the service staff is very enthusiastic, because we have different punch plugs, the service staff enthusiastically borrows our applicable conversion plug. This hotel does not have a restaurant to provide breakfast, there is a small disadvantage is the place to eat nearby Not much, the hotel location is very close to the bus station at the entrance, but a little far away from the subway station, Singapore is very suitable for taking a bus to travel around the city. The large glass on the upper layer of the bus is like a sightseeing bus, and the big buses go to various attractions Convenience

The location of the hotel is convenient, with multiple buses such as 143 and 51 passing by. Not far away is Backstreet, there are many restaurants there, all are delicious, the rooms are small but clean. livable. By the way, the lemonade in the lobby is delicious.

This hotel is convenient if you are attending to some events in NUS or the western part of Singapore. A pretty small hotel but adequate based on the price paid. Not recommended for families as they cater to short time booking of the rooms as well; by the hour rates. So I guess many couples visit this hotel for a “happy” time. Many food joints just round the corner and operates 24 hrs. Thus this is a plus point, just a 3 min walk. 7-11 is also close by.

Was served by Kelson for the two days. I enjoyed hotels in the suburbs, away from the major tourist attractions to explore the neighborhood. This is a business hotel with resort feel. Upgraded to Club room 1809 for solo staycation. Rooms were clean, air-con is a bit cold. From my window, i can see beautiful city lights at night and sunrise in the morning. Since travel is not happening anytime soon in times of COVID, I can only pretend that I'm looking at the Manhattan skyline. Towels were provided for the pool and gym. Breakfast was included in package, along with $10 credit. Food wasn't fantastic, you can give it a miss. Disappointed that Coffee Belt was closed on weekdays. Would like to try their coffee next time. Walking distance to ABC Brickworks, Alexandra Village Food Centre, Queensway Shopping Centre (an old school mall) and Ikea too. So many dining options. Would have extended my stay had I known there so many interesting things around the neighborhood. Will be trying out their sister hotel in Clarke Quay the next time

1. The luxurious set, the room is antique, the style of Southeast Asia is strong, the height is high, the bed is very beautiful, and there is a sofa. The bathroom thief is large, there are two faucets, and the two people do not affect each other. 2. There is a cold water in the room with a copper pot. Boiled water can be piled together and drunk directly. Also delivered wine and fruit. 3. Breakfast is a long mountain road on the 2nd floor behind the villa, then in the restaurant on the top, go to the end of the small house and turn right, breakfast half outdoor and semi-open. There are not many things, but you can eat enough, porridge is not bad, bread can be grilled and then eaten. Each person can also order a free meal according to the menu. 4. From the labrador park subway station at night, walk downstairs to the villa, very beautiful and quiet. 5. The younger brother at the front desk can speak Chinese, but a little bit can do it. The service is in place and very welcoming. 6. If you are cheaper next time, go live. Hahaha! ! !

Husband and I stayed in the Superior room for 7 days, this was supposed to be a non-refundable booking if we cancelled out. Here are my observations; PROS: great location, polite cleaning staff - that's it! CONS: Extremely overpriced for the kind of hotel this is - an "hourly hotel", which sitting in another country at the time of booking, we were totally unaware of and truly regret booking. 1) We booked this place on and only provided our debit card number and expiry date, to our utter shock, a couple of hours later the entire amount was withdrawn from our bank without acknowledgement by the hotel. We contacted the hotel and and requested immediate cancellation, both refused! Extremely unprofessional! How to trust a hotel that withdraws your money even before you check-in, and our check-in was scheduled 48 hours later! We have stayed in many hotels before, and this is the first time we encountered this unprecedented and dubious situation! 2) The room was very tiny, with hardly any space to walk around or store luggage. The bathroom was spacious with 24hrs hot water. Towels, and a toothbrush set were provided. 3) Amenities in the room included an average spring mattress, not good for those with spinal problems, uncomfortable pillows, a TV that didn't work, hairdryer, electric kettle, bottled water and tea/coffee packets. No desk... no chair...the room was that tiny! 4) A window that was sealed shut ! So no access to fresh air, only stale cigarette-filled A.C. air - terrible ! 5) Room was only made up, and sheets were not changed on a daily basis. 6) I do not wish to be judgemental, but this is a place that let out "rooms by the hour", if you get my drift. On a personal note, I would never have chosen this establishment for a "family" because it was quite uncomfortable for us. Therefore, I will not recommend this place for those hoping for a nice Singapore vacation or stay.

The two disadvantages are that dry and wet do not separate. There is a shower on the toilet. The shower room is super small and the shower water is super strong. It can't reach people at all when it is opened to the largest extent. The direction of the hose and shower hanging on it is not easy to control. In short, the bathing experience is very poor. Others are good and clean.

- don’t bother keeping a deposit, no in room dining option available by the hotel - they say they provide food but it has to be collected and sent in a takeaway box from other dining places nearby - it’s a staycation but only limited to The hotel room, your food will have to be sorted somewhere else Checked in to the hotel for a one night stay, stayed in room 8807 for my birthday celebration. Check in was alright but the atmosphere seemed very busy and rushed. A lot of the staff seemed unavailable and no one even offered my husband whom is older a place to sit since check in took longer due to only one staff working at Reception. That touch of service and being in a 5 star luxury hotel was not seen. The room no doubt is fantastic, absolutely beautiful and the view is stunning. No complaints about the room at all. Although as mentioned by the previous user, the dining options are terrible. I understand due to Covid there are limitations but there isn’t even any room service provided directly by the hotel. They provide non 5 star food at high prices so it’s best you go to Vivo to get your food. Breakfast was also not good. Food selection and display was not as appetising nor tasty. The hotel does not have their own room service option which is a shame and should be downgraded to 4star Hotel. The butlers and people whom delivered the food were nice they are not at fault at all. Finally what really irked me, is that I am above 50yrs old and celebrating my birthday at a hotel for one night only at a price of 5500SGD plus, and the number of staff that keeps reminding not to decorate the place, make sure it’s only 5 pax got annoying. The first time it was mentioned which is most important, I already understood, especially being a Singaporean myself. But I am not some 20 smth year old teenager that has the time to decorate and invite people and get myself fined on my birthday. So maybe the hotel needs to look into passing this information to the guest ensuring they will comply without having a thousand staff remind you that your relaxing trip is already burdened with an annoying reminder which doesn’t even apply to you. Hence to all Singaporeans looking for a staycation at this time, considering this property is sold as a 5 star, luxury hotel, YOU’RE BETTER OFF SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY SOMEWHERE ELSE.

The measurement from the floor to the top of mattress for an average adult should be comfortably at 24-25 inches bed height., so that guests can put both feet firmly on the ground and push off the bes with knees bent. This makes an average bed height of 2 feet. However, we were shocked to find the bed height in this Travelodge Harbourfront hotel was 34 inches ( from the floor to our mattress). This unacceptable height made us climbed onto a chair to get on our double bed or climbed down a chair from our double bed. We asked to change room. Beginning the man agreed to change to a lower bed but he changed his mind and told us no other rooms. Yet we saw many Indian or Bangladeshi workers staying in the hotel rooms. They occupied many rooms because the hotel has undergone renovation since last year August 2020. Later he gave us a step platform to get up and down of bed. The man at reception told us they had changed lower beds into higher beds after renovated. We stayed in Dec 2020 at Deluxe room with a normal 24 inches bed height. Taller beds are a risk for seniors, children and wheelchair bound guests. Remember there is a high risk of accidents for this groups. Thank you.

The location is a little bit too secluded, but rooms are ok and staff was accommodating. Private parking available which is good. Gotten free mini bar and snacks which is a surprise. Overall stay was pleasant but food was a hassle to travel for or just order in. Windows thought should be reseal for soundproofing. They're is a small temple just behind it and the caretaker was dragging something through out the wee hours.

Due to travelling restrictions, my husband and I are confined to looking for staycation as our honeymoon after we got married this year. We had a really enjoyable stay in Shangri-la. We requested for earlier check-in at 12PM and was told that it will be subject to availability. When we arrive at the hotel at around 12PM, we were pleasantly surprised to be told that we are given a free upgrade to Valley Wing Deluxe Room and given access to the exclusive lounge with drinks, high tea and canapés available for us. We had our dinner later on at Waterfall Restaurant which was part of the package that we bought on The 3-course meal that we had was really delicious with great atmosphere as we were seated outdoors at the pool side. The service provided to us was impeccable. Perhaps the only small downside is the accessibility of the hotel if you don't drive. We pretty much stayed in the hotel during our entire trip so it wasnt really a big factor. Would love to visit Shangri-la again in future :)

I booked for my fiancé's birthday and in lieu to celebrate New Years. Firstly, early check in was given as to prevent the crowd during the New Years Eve. Very smart move made by the hotel which I am very thankful for! It helps to control the crowd. has emailed me to WhatsApp the hotel as were told by the hotel to request for early check in. Replies by the hotel staffs were fast too! After checking in, I called to reserve the pool but it was sad I could not go as it was raining! The room was rather small but that's fine by me! The shampoo and body wash given smells nice! I usually do not use hotel's shampoo/bodywash but this hotel's toiletries was quite nice! The view from the toiler was not bad too! You need to of course close the blind to have a private shower. Was given free macaroons delivered by the robots to my room as it was my fiancé's birthday! Super kind gesture made by the hotel staffs! We were super touched! The next day, when I went down to pick up my breakfast as I choose to take away(can select to dine in or take away), the staff could not find my breakfast order as my breakfast order was misplaced by one of the staffs (the one I gave my order sheet to) But that's okay because I did not mind waiting for them to pack my food again. I was also granted late check out! Overall, pleasant stay! The team was all very friendly and approachable. Thank you!

Actually requested for highest floor with amazing view but they didn’t fulfil my request. It’s okay, they also mention to make advance booking for swimming pool and so we did, but pool is fully booked, felt so disappointed. During check in we try our luck again for the pool, lucky there is last 3 slot of us. Around 7pm went swimming, but no one was there. (Wonder why they say it’s fully book) 😕 In the afternoon try to make booking for pool again, again they say fully book. We didn’t bother to go down to check. Aside from that, we do appreciate the gifts that comes in the package that include late check out at 6pm, inclusive of breakfast and semi lunch buffet for 2 adults. Room was very spacious and clean. Overall we are happy with our stay there. Definitely we come again.

Great service by all staff upon check-in, at the gym & swimming pool, at breakfast, housekeeping & also upon check-out. Very happy we received free upgrade for our room and it had a beautiful view in the bedroom & also in the huge bathroom with bathtub! We even received a brownie for our anniversary celebration. F&B staff at breakfast were friendly and accommodating but the food quality and variety can be improved for the breakfast set menu since there is no buffet now. Gym & swimming pool was clean and easy to book. Wonderful location of hotel and complimentary parking was a bonus. Thank you for the wonderful stay :)

There was a 3-hour delay in checking-in but we were reasonably compensated in the form of complimentary parking and dining credits. Kudos to the front desk and concierge staff who were efficient and patient, especially with some unreasonable guests (no need to make things difficult for those who are trying to make your stay better). Food quality of in room dining was good and the safety measure was well managed at the pool. Thank you to all that have served us during our stay, you are Awesome! Just one thing not so pleasant thou, the service attitude of a particular male staff at Ash and Elm was rather bad that’s why we decided not to dine there. Seemed like somethings don’t change (bad experience with Ash and Elm years back), so except for the restaurant, we would love to come back again 😁

Beds were clean and comfortable. Front desk staff service was friendly and professional. After the 1st night, was woken up by drilling and hammering noises at 9 plus in the morning. Breakfast in room dining was ordered at 930am, arrived at 1150am as in doom dining department could not cope w the huge amount of orders. Was informed that our breakfast would arrive at 1130am. So first day, wasn't impressed w renovation noises that disrupted our sleep and a breakfast that was more of brunch. Did request for room change and was given another room. Air conditioning in the new room was not working well n had to request for a fan. Overall, the old building and maintenance of the hotel would place it as a 4 star hotel rather than a 5-star rating.
