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
We stayed for 3nights at the heritage room. Our room was on the second floor of what seemed like the mall's side (we didnt have any issue with the noise). Love the location just right in the mall of Bukis metro station and short walk to Arab street. Lobby bar has good atmosphere, nice music and always look busy day and night. The room was clean and spacious for city hotel. Luxury bathroom in white marble. Wifi worked fine. Swimming pool was small. We had room service breakfast and it was good. Like many hotel, each room comes with a handy phone which you can take them out with you to explore singapore and we think it's really useful.
Overall we had a pleasant stay :)
Have a chance to stay here for staycation overnight on May. The hotel have an excellent location. I was greeted by Fiona upon arrival and thanks for providing me a nice room and accommodated my request. Even though the hotel was old but very well renovated. The atmosphere was warm and decent like brand new hotel at lobby area. The guest room was luxurious for decoration and function. Me and my boyfriend really enjoy tea and coffee provided in the room. Other full-service hotels should have a space for cool down or small yoga like here to enhance the ending of exercise experience. The pool was small but can enjoy a perfect sunbath around there. Breakfast at Ash & Elm which was superb. It was our first time entered this restaurant then the set up quite confused us but we love to explore anyway. Everything was good, really! So far this is a perfect place to stay for staycation for local and for tourist as well.
My husband was back in Singapore for work In June 2019 and I came out to stay with him for a couple of weeks following cancer treatment. He told Foo Wai Kit and her team, and they were just incredible!. A beautifully decorated room on our arrival- prosecco, balloons, a congratulations banner and most touching of all- a hand made card signed by all the hotel staff- so kind! They really looked after me whilst he was working and I enjoyed leisurely breakfasts and afternoon teas in the club lounge.
Location is great- 10 minutes walk to Marina Bay Sands and right by Bugis MRT which is 2 convenient lines.
Hotel club room was immaculate and we made good use of Nespresso machine! Housekeeping was very good and there is a instant service feature on the phone for any requests such as extra bottled water, laundry collection etc!
Thank you Intercon Singapore for a wonderful stay!
