The InterContinental Singapore is adjacent to a row of native Peranakan shops, allowing guests to browse artwork and other handmade goods that recall the city’s Chinese, Malay and European culture. All 403 guestrooms are decked out in smart British colonial décor and modern amenities make this hotel an ideal spot for business travelers. Elsewhere, there are two restaurants (cooking up Japanese and Chinese cuisine), a fitness center and lush rooftop garden; the outdoor pool offers a taste of serenity that belies the hotel’s bustling downtown location. Best of all is the prime location in Marina Bay: You’re just minutes from the popular Bugis Street Shopping District.
In the Area
Visit the Sultan Mosque, dating to 1928 and among the city’s oldest landmarks, for an historic photo-op, stopping along nearby Kandahar Street to browse the markets and artisan stalls that crowd the streets and alleyways. In Chinatown, stop by the restored Heritage Centre to browse art and cultural relics from Singapore’s early Chinese history. For a bird’s eye view of the city, ride the 541-foot Singapore Flyer, the world’s largest observational wheel, for a 30-minute look at the metropolis from above. And make time for Gardens by the Bay, a Marina Bay-area sculptural park and conservation area with a variety of themed gardens and natural attractions.
How to Get There
The InterContinental is perfectly located in the middle of downtown Singapore! I highly recommend this place if you're just visiting, or going for a business trip. To start off, it is directly located next to a mall that is attached to the Metro (You don't even have to go outside in the heat if you don't want to). The Metro is a direct line to all of the key tourist places and business district: Chinatown, Marina Sands, etc. It's also located close to a food centre, Chijmes. Which has indoor and outdoor seating for your needs!
To top off the location, the comfort was perfect. The breakfast has every option you can imagine (Asian, Western, Indian, etc.). The hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful with any of your needs. And the beds... I almost didn't want to get up, but the breakfast was just too good to pass up!
This place has all of the amenities that you might need: Great location, full-continental breakfast, friendly staff, direct access to the metro and bus, pool with a decent view, bar area, and conference centre. You can't really go wrong!
Had a business trip in this hotel for 3 nights. There are 3 similar hotel's name, need to tell driver specifically that the hotel is at middle Rd. You can check in early if the hotel have an available room, they will turn the room to you no need to wait till 3 pm (I got the available room since 1 pm) . Staff was good in arrangement.
The hotel is surrounded with a shopping center; bugis junction, bugis street and capitaland Mall. And also nearby the MRT
The room was clean with full of facilities, i'm in love the hand & body lotion which had a light aroma.
Breakfast was good, and many food lines. Love hot chocolate.
One cons was a noise of refrigeration which I couldn't sleep on day1
Stayed for the first time but was a very good hotel. I have always been a fan of the IHG brand but this hotel kept the brand standard and was very comforting. For the price I paid, service and comfort I got was much more than what I paid for which makes one feel very good! Morning buffet was very well as well, but the best was the hotel bed quality - simply the most comforting bed I have ever slept in! For sure I will be coming back and staying with them again!
As always we were greeted by friendly staff and the check in process was very smooth. Our room was immaculate with a very comfortable bed, places to sit and bathroom equipped with both a shower and a bath tub.
The service in the Intercontinental Club lounge was efficient. The manner of serving has changed since our last visit with breakfast hot dishes being ordered at the table and then cooked and delivered to the table. Likewise the evening canapés being ordered from a menu. Both morning and evening had a selection of cold items for self service.
The new Ash & Elm has a relaxing feel and our meal there was much better than any in the previous restaurant.
We like the location of this hotel because there are many things to do in the immediate vicinity such as hawker stalls, shopping and sights are on the door step. It is also easy to get to other places in the city using the adjacent Bugis station or (for tourists) the hop-on-hop off buses that stop a few minutes walk away.
Departure was equally smooth with the check swiftly done and a taxi easily available.
Our 2 night stay at the property was nearly perfect - everything from check in, room condition, room size was massive as we opted for premium king room, bathroom cleanliness, amenities, pool, service, dining at Ash & Elm, drinks at Lobby Lounge, perks for IHG members was wonderful. The only negative which my wife and I noted were the poor quality toilet paper...Changi Airport had much softer toilet rolls.
Other than that, this may have been the best hotel I've stayed at the last 5 years.
