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
Great hotel location in Bugis. Friendly staff with very comfortable rooms. Only issue was the elevators were rather faulty but got you there eventually! The breakfast spread is also decent with a mix of asian and western.
This was our second stay at this hotel - some 10+ years after our first stay.
Unfortunately the hotel has gone downhill & did not live up to our expectations.
The carpets are tired and need replace I gotta, and generally speaking the hotel could do with a good review & uplift (cracked tiles, tired decor, etc).
The service was not up to what you would expect from a 4 star hotel- uninterested staff, slow service, & mistake prone.
On the plus side - our room was comfortable & a good size.
A little disappointed & we will be staying elsewhere if we return to Singapore
I use the group in the uk so when searching for a hotel in Singapore I chase the intercontinental middle road.
I booked a club room and whilst only there for four nights it was an amazing stay with the warmest of welcomes.
The club lounge offered a top clas breakfast, afternoon tea and canapés and a two hour cocktail party every night, in addition to serving soft drinks and light refreshments throughout the day.
The hotel was so centrally located for all attractions and there was also a metro station at the hotel so a very accessible spot.
The staff were extremely helpful and incredibly efficient all with a warmth and a friendly disposition.
The hotel offered a smart device which allowed free local and international calls along with many useful apps.
Great hotel and if ever back in Singapore would not look anywhere else.
Returned to this hotel after a year's absence this time using our ambassador points for a free room. Last time i was there were had a sensational suite do i was expecting a lot from a free room but i was totally impressed. We had a deluxe king room which was superbly renovated in lovely light bright colours. Huge windows and high ceilings also added to the feeling of this large room. Immaculately clean actually gleaming. Pillow menu is fantastic and adds to the pleasure of what is the best linen and most comfortable sleep you can ever have. Service as always excellent. Thanks this is why we have studied loyal to the intercontinental chain for so long.
We booked the heritage room for our son’s birthday celebration. Great room, great breakfast, great fun.
But the best thing was the service we got from Josiah. You can tell he genuinely wants guests to have a great time, very personal and efficient service. He also sent up a cake for the birthday boy which was great. Thank you Josiah!
