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 Singapore did not disappoint. The entire experience from check in to check out was fantastic and all the team tries to go the extra mile. I am an Ambassador member and got a room upgrade to a very large room just for myself. The room has all the amenities you could need or use and the turn down service was fantastic each night. Used the pool twice and a very quaint area and it would be great for adults and kids. The wifi was very good and the MRT station (Bugis) is a short 5 minute walk and it services two lines (Downtown & East West). Had breakfast one morning of my three night stay and it had a vast variety (Western, Asian, Indian). Staying here you will not be disappointed.
Great stay. I’m a regular platinum member and this hotel was up there.
Room: beyond sensational upgrade to the Presidential Suite. All I can say is WOW and thank you!!
Club lounge- staff superb, food fantastic. Breakfast delicious. Wide array of beautifully prepared canapés at cocktail hour. Delicious high tea.
Gorgeous hotel. Great location.
We will definitely be back.
It has been awhile since I last stayed in this hotel. It was by chance as my other prefer hotel was fully booked. It was nice going back to Intercontinental as the reception is still friendly as before. The check-in was seamless and the first impression when I enter the room, it was brightly lighted and it looks new. Not sure whether it was already refurnished. The room is clean and spacious and the bed looks inviting. The TV is big enough and the best thing is that it can rotate instead of fixed. Its a nice edition since I was working on the desk ans still able to watch my favorite channel. The toilet is clean and have a rain shower. My only complain is that the water pressure should be strongly. I can even order a pillow of my choice from the TV menu. The breakfast spread is okay and fresh fruits juice in small bottle was a great idea. The hotel is ideally located next to the mall and you wont get hungry as there are plenty of restaurant and food aplenty. Its also next to Bugis MRT station where you can travel anywhere hassle free. Overall it was nice to go back to this hotel and it is recommended for business as well as leisure.
Was there for a staycation to celebrate husband’s birthday. Service was prompt and friendly from the reception to front desk to Man Fu Yuan restaurant.
Room was elegant, comfortable and a good size, with a luxury touch. Complimentary birthday cake was sent to the room promptly at the time indicated.
The hotel is connected to Bugis Junction Shopping mall, where you can access two underground train stations to other attractions. Bugis station is 1 train stop away from Raffles City and within walking distance to Suntec City mall etc if you do not mind a 10-15min walk.
Lunch at Man Fu Yuan Chinese restaurant was very enjoyable. IHG rewards hotel guest enjoys 20% off while dining there.
Only negative encounter was while we wanted to have a drink at the lobby lounge, a quarter to midnight, no server attended to us for the 15mins we were there, hence we headed back to the room. This is a small issue, but something to take note of.
We stayed 1 night on the way back from a bigger Asia trip for work & leisure.
Check-in was flawless.
The staff were really helpful and quick to assist.
The actual building/hotel is not modern, but very classic & timeless. We stayed in the heritage building which had gorgeous big white shutters on the windows. The hallways probably need a little re-vamp as they look a little dated but the rooms were lovely.
The rooms are a great size and the beds.... oh the beds!! The beds are the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. I was actually sad to have to leave so early in the morning for the airport and not be able to lounge around more. Very comfortable and well worth it.
Unfortunately due to our schedule, we were not able to sample the food and beverage but will definitely do this next time as we were generously given 20% off to use in the outlets and it looked lovely.
The last thing I will mention is that they give you a mobile phone to use during your stay which you can take outside the hotel. It is available for calls and also contains info on everything to do in Singapore so you can navigate your way around. It was definitely the coolest addition to the room and we make great use of that.
The location is also really good. It is bang smack in the middle of everything with the mall below, and loads of eateries around. The MRT is also around the corner and you are just 2 stops away from Marina Bay Sands, the Bay of Gardens etc. It is so convenient and it was super quick & easy.
Again, the hotel gave us great recommendations to use the above and we found it really helpful.
We will be back!
