Located in the Bugis district in downtown Singapore, the Mercure Singapore Bugis soars alongside buildings both old and new, evidence of Singapore’s rapid urban development.

Those who drive would like to know that there is a parking garage in the basement, and that a porch with direct access to the hotel lobby for convenient pick up or drop off.

Not all Mercure properties are created equal, but for this property located in downtown Singapore, its small footprint translates to smaller and more intimate interiors. Thankfully, the hotel design incorporates contemporary touches and complementary lighting for a more modern vibe.

The layout of the lobby was so favourable that it was possible for a decent sized lounge, fully furnished with sofas and even a business centre, for guests to linger or work.

The bar at the lobby also added some degree of sophistication to the property.

Check-in was a breeze as the staff had my Accor Plus Gold account information, and since I was already booked in a loft room, no further upgrade was available. I was also offered drink vouchers as part of my membership benefit with Accor Plus.

As with most loft rooms, the actual floor space is small, but augmented with the additional space afforded by the upper loft.

On the lower floor, the living room and sofa made for a great place to watch some television.

The work desk facing the window is also great for those who need to complete some work during your stay. Note that some loft rooms have work desks positioned under the stairs, so be sure to make any requests known when you book your stay.

Some complimentary coffee and tea was available, together with a mini refrigerator that didn’t feel much colder than the room itself.

The toilet and bathroom are both located on the lower floor as well. In my opinion, the frosted glass offers sufficient privacy for the user. The shower was a little small, but water pressure was good.

Here’s another view of the lower floor as you head up the stairs.

Due to the limited headroom up on the loft, the bed is actually just a mattress on the floor. The mattress itself was fairly comfortable, and with a second television up in the loft, it’s possible to enjoy a movie or two in bed.

The loft is a significant height above the lower floor, so do take care when ascending or descending the stairs. Thankfully, handrails are provided for additional support if needed.

The hotel has a very decent pool, allowing guests to soak up Singapore’s urban landscape.

With a considerable length, it’s possible for you to perform some laps in the pool.

The gym, or shall I say fitness corner, is also co-located with the pool. Equipped with only a couple of cardio machines and light free weights, the facility is only able to offer as much as a light workout would require.

Be sure to head up to the roof garden for unobstructed views of the Singapore skyline, further enhanced at sunset.

The Mercure Singapore Bugis is great for those who’ll be staying out exploring the city for most of the day, and only require a cozy place to sleep at night. But with facilities and amenities like the pool, gym and lobby bar, guests will have more than enough to pamper themselves during their stay.
