How to Get There
This review relates to a short stopover in Singapore. We arrived very early in the morning so had booked our room for the night before in order to be able to go straight to our room after a long haul flight. The check in staff were friendly and welcoming and the room an oasis of peace and comfort. All facilities were of top quality and the freshness and cleanliness were appreciated. The pool was accessible and had a good range of loungers and cabanas with attendants on hand to ensure that fresh towels and beverages were always available and also to manage the turnover of the loungers. We ate a very delicious meal at the Dolce Vita restaurant on level 5. Great atmosphere and delicious food.
My wife and I stayed here for three nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the time you walk through the front reception doors it is just wow! As we had booked a Club Lounge room our check-in was completed seamlessly in our room by a very friendly and competent staff member. Check-in also included a full run-through of the suite including lighting, entertainment and amenities.
A little celebratory cake on the table was also a nice gesture.
The Melt Cafe International buffet breakfast is superb and the hotel is well located with plenty of external dining options available.
The hotel staff are commended on their friendliness, attention to detail, and professionalism.
The Club Marina Executive Lounge offers complimentary beer and wine all day, but it would even better if you could have these around the pool. To access the complimentary beer and wine you have to either get changed (long trousers and closed shoes) and have your wine in the lounge or take it back to your room.
Overall a very memorable stay.
We had that "Wow" moment when we walked into our 13th floor room overlooking the marina area. The room was great, the entire experience at this hotel was first class. Friendly, helpful and efficient staff everywhere we went.
Again I stayed at the MO SIN as usually every two years foe a long time. I had a German VIP Group with (as nearly always) and we were 10 people altogether. As usually I booked the Oriental Club Lounge, a must for the distinctive traveller. The MO is always very busy but you get fantastic service in the Lounge with high quality food and drinks. The service is unbeatable though sometimes the Lounge is quite crowded. Nevertheless I am convinced its the best place to stay in SIN. Thanks to everybody, especially the Ladies at the Lounge desk and Yaja in service, he is an institution.
A wonderful Pool area, a Italian restaurant by the pool and excellent Restaurants all over the Hotel convince to stay.
I was lucky enough to combine a work trip with some personal time in Singapore and decided to stay the whole time at the Mandarin Oriental. We utilised the club lounge and had a room on the top floor.
The staff were friendly and professional and from the second day remembered preferences for breakfast and drinks in the lounge.
They made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
The Gym was clean and organised and the pool area was beautiful.
Located within walking distance from most of Singapore’s must-see areas, it is the ideal place to base yourself.
Also , in Singapore, the taxis are so cheap that if you decide not to walk, almost everything is under $10 in a taxi and the drivers are so friendly that you want to round up and give them a tip.
Would definitely book again for our next trip to Singapore.
The room looked across to Marina Bay Sands and in the evening you can see the whole light show in the Gardens and from the top of the MBS building.
