    Singapore hotel recommendations

    We have two weeks there in March next year. Wife is looking at the Fullerton Bay Hotel, which receives excellent reviews. Has anyone stayed there? Other recommendations gratefully received. Thanks.

    Singapore hotel recommendations

    I've visited it but not stayed there (yet - I will be in November), but several colleagues have and they were all happy with it. It's well located and pretty ornate.

    EDIT: Sorry, ignore me. I was thinking of the Fullerton, not the Fullerton Bay.

    Pretty close to some nice watch shops as well, as I recall.

    Do not stay at the Grand Park City Hall. It's just been refurbished & the room controls (lights etc) are app based & are dreadful to operate.

    Everything is close to a watch shop (Orchard Road) in Singapore. I've stayed in the Hilton, Swissotel Stamford (request a high floor for the views), the Conrad, the Fairmont and the Marina Bay Sands and some others not worth recommending.

    I'd discount the Hilton (wrong end of town) but the others all worth a look.

    How can you say that? It's very close to some of the attractions...

    Stayed at the Ritz Carlton Millenia last time we visited - lovely hotel and staff.

    Having lived there for 5 years and visited regularly since? I appreciate it's a personal opinion.

    Fullerton and Fullerton Bay are both really good. Conrad Centennial is not too far away and also nice.

    I'd avoid MBS personally, terrible hotel in my experience.

    Got back a few weeks ago - stayed at the Hyatt Andaz, which was decent also stayed at the Swisshotel Stamford which has been recently refurbished also very nice. Both central locations with good amenities.

    I stayed at the vagabond which is a ‘boutique’ arty hotel but part of the Marriott group. Had a good stay there but may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
    You have to go and have a cocktail or meal at the Atlas Bar, would be my first port of call if I ever go back

    Mandarin Oriental was a really nice place when I was there a couple of years back for the Singapore F1.

    I usually stay with family when I visit but have stayed at various hotels for short periods over the years too.
    The Shanghai-La was good, had a nice pool are too and close to Orchard Road with transport links all over.
    Raffles is my favourite and looking good after the re-vamp. The service there is excellent.
    Marina Bay Sands hotel is crap but staying there is the only way you can get access to the infinity pool at the top.

    Another thumbs up for the Mandarin Oriental. It's where I stay when in Singapore and does understated luxury very well.

    Spent 5 nights at the St Regis last year. Great location at the top end of Orchid rd so a bit quieter. Close to the botanical gardens. Couldn't fault it to be honest.

    Stayed at both the Park Royal and Mandarin Oriental this year. Both are nice but I felt Mandarin Oriental was a little bit dated. Nice view of Marina Bay Sands though.
