Conveniently located at Tanjong Pagar close to Singapore’s Central Business District, the Carlton City Singapore will allow guests to have lots to choose from when it comes to dining options nearby. But food aside, the hotel is only a short distance away from the Esplanade and Marina Bay district with great tourist and night life attractions.
Stepping inside, the hotel lobby is very spacious, with the living green wall adding a nice touch.
I find the use of marble very inviting, while giving the posh factor a little boost.
The lift lobby is also visually stunning!
The room options are fairly limited here, but you’ll be quite satisfied with the Executive Rooms that all come with a nice view. The colour combinations were safe for a contemporary look, and while the actual floor area wasn’t huge, the room seemed spacious.
Right by the bed was an armchair that was quite weirdly positioned, but alright for an afternoon read right by the window.
Located at the front of the room was the standard flat screen television, with rather limited entertainment options.
On the working desk, you’ll find a handy phone that you can take with you when you head out for the day, a great tool for exploring Singapore. But be sure to replace it before you check out though.
In the wooden chest beneath the television you’ll find the mini bar with the standard snacks and drinks.
The bathroom is separated by a glass panel but with a screen that can be lowered for added privacy.
The bathroom itself was quite roomy, and had both a bathtub and a shower. The backlit mirror was also a nice touch.
If you’re travelling alone, you can keep the privacy screen raised to give you the impression of a larger room.
In the wardrobe you’ll find some bathrobes, slippers and a safe. There’s also an ironing board and a laundry bag if you need some help with your clothes.
For those who need to keep fit while travelling, the hotel comes with a fully equipped gym and an outdoor pool.
There also seems to be an outdoor area specially designed for functions.
An overall nice and uneventful stay at the Carlton City Singapore that lived up to my expectations.
