How to Get There
This hotel is inside an office building which at first had us a little confused, but we managed. The room was decent size, the only thing that was strange is the the shower was in the middle of the room. Yes, in the middle. It has a separate room with the sink and toilet, but shower was next to the bed. A little uncomfortable as I shared the room with someone who I would like to shower next to, so we had to go and hang out outside of the room, until the other person showered. Other than that it was great, staff was super helpful and we were able to go out an explore on our last day and before going to the airport, picked up our stuff
A nice hotel very close to Tanjong Pagar MRT.
It is just across KEPPEL Towers.
Spacious rooms and clean.
There is not breakfast or restaurant services in the boutique hotel however the hotel is located very central and there are a lot of dining options in the area.
The staff is very friendly and keep to serve you.
Prices are logical and within reasonable range.
Parking is also available.
it is a super spacious room, named as oasis suite 3-01, came with a open space Jacuzzi.
However it is probably one of the off time I have had...
1) lightings...man, if I have to spend 15mins guessing which button is meant for which light, I guess it's a failure. And I am sure the designer is not a woman. No female will accept a walk-in wardrobe is lighted up with one pathetic 3w dim spotlight and it's not under any individual control. Note: espresso machine is setup inside the wardrobe. Ya, I have challenges to find the switches for electricity plus plug...
2) a safe should be functioning: if a safe
is BROKEN with keypad half-dropping, it's not safe. If you don't meant to have people using it, why bother keeping it in the room?
3) odd layout: toilet and shower area is so far apart, that you have to walk out, get across the bedroom then head to the bath tub/shower area. So if halfway shower you wanna go to toilet, ya..prepare to have a long walk with all wet footprints around the room.
4) amenities: Nespresso machine is in(appreciate it!), but no espresso cups...so should I put a mug for an espresso?
6) arrangement of amenities: Nespresso machine is interestingly placed inside the wardrobe on top of the safe (best guess: hotel manager thinks it would be 'safer'?) While cups/stirrer/opener and fridge is at the centre of the bedroom...fun game for hide n seek!
5) injury issue: right at the entrance of of the glass door towards Jacuzzi has got a nail. Imagine you are wearing no shoes. How I find it? Ya! Stepping on it will do.
6) cleaniness: the rims of the glassy door have been some insects' home. Don't look up. It's at your own risk.
7) services: I am lucky that I knew how a Jacuzzi works. (of which most hotels I have been would have a staff escorting & introducing facilities & how it functions in most of the circumstances. Or at least, leave us a manual)
8) services: requested to have 2 whisky glasses...turned out to be 2 different sizes... seriously? A US$320/room/night hotel couldn't afford to get same size whisky glasses?
9) service counter: sadly the gentleman isn't bad person, it's just totally missed the point. When a staff read the checked in guest is on his birthday, isn't it sweet to say "happy birthday"? Instead, the gentleman told us to call hotel management ourselves to check if there is any promotion...when we checked out, we told them the problem of the room, he told us to write to the management. Hmm... Sad
We stayed at the oasis suite as we were attracted in the website to having a jacuzzi next to the room. The lobby was impressive with modern and artistic furniture and sculptures. However, we got a shock when we went to our room. It was old, dark and moldy. You can literally see the mold accumulating around the central aircon vent and there were streaks of slimy yellow water stains trickling down the walls in the toilet. The outdoor jacuzzi was ok. It didn't have those functions that could blow out strong bubbles. Just a plain big bathtub if you asked me. The sofa at the outdoor decking was wet and dirty and we didn't dare to sit on it. The aircon controller on the wall was a bit spoiled and we had to keep pressing hard the 'fan' button in order to bring the fan power to 'H' instead of 'HH'.
Overall, for the steep price we were paying, I would say it aint worth it. We could have stayed in a better quality boutique hotel that is much cheaper and worth our experience.
Checked in at 3pm but room was still not ready. Went up to realise the jacuzzi was dirty and not sheltered by anything therefore no privacy. Asked front counter staff Kevin and he said item is not available and has to be ordered. Asked to change to other rooms but said all occupied. The pictures on the website showed the jacuzzi with a shelter and had lights and everything, but when I was there no sheltered jacuzzi, leaves all over the jacuzzi, I had to clean it myself and soak in darkness. If I had known I would have just topped up and stayed at a better hotel with the same facilities. Won’t stay here again. Not worth the money spend. Also verbalised on booking that it was my first marriage anniversary but didnt expect much after realising the management was Fragrance after making the booking. Wish I could get my money back for a better deal.
