I have stayed twice at this hotel twice in the last 18 months. The level of service is fantastic. I can’t comment on the club rooms, but the standard and lowest level suites are both excellent.27 Jan 2009
another good thing is that there a few shopping malls within a few minutes of the hotel….
outside the hotel looks like its from the 70’s though…..i.e. concrete central28 Jan 2009
Great hotel and location although on my last visit, there there was a lot of ongoing construction outside of the hotel area, however, this may now be completed.
Excellent service, although some may find it overpowering at times – highly recommended.3 Feb 2009
If you’re used to Mandarin Oriental else where and specially in HK (i.e the MO or the Landmark MO) you’ll be very disappointed as the Singapore one is far from the usual MO standard, even at the execitve floor. The club lounge is nice though. Rooms are small and not that well maintained. Try the Four seasons or the Marina Mandarin instead.
If you’re not use to MO standards or Asia 5 stars hotels, then Singapore MO will be fine.4 Feb 2009
Mandarin Oriental in Singapore has excellent service. Too good in fact… I left a suit in the closet in my room on purpose, because I didn’t want to lug it back to California. A week later, I received a Federal Express box from them with an apology letter and the suit! I ended up donating the suit to Goodwill, but I was very impressed by the service.4 Feb 2009
I’ve stayed at almost every 5 star hotel in Singapore over the years, but I can’t say I agree with those here that praise the Mandarin Oriental there. My tuppence worth is for The Fairmont (formerly the Westin and more recently Raffles The Plaza). The best location, wonderfully large rooms, excellent restaurants, leisure facilities and shopping mall next door along with the efficient subway.
Try expedia.com they usually have great value for money rates there.13 Feb 2009
