Carlton Hotel Singapore is conveniently located 5 minutes walk away from Bras Baseh, City Hall and Esplanade MRT stations. I had the pleasure to stay a night in the hotel to witness at one of my best friends’ wedding.
Around the hotel you can find CHIJMES and Raffles City Shopping Centre. If you are gamed for a walk, you can also stroll to Bugis Junction or Marine Square in 30 minutes.
Our Check-in Experience
Before our arrival, my friend was alerted that someone has already checked into the hotel room under my name. The unknown person has managed to provide accurate check-in details at the hotel reception. She was dumbfounded and quickly asked if any of us have already checked into the room.
Turned out the banquet manager has checked in on her behalf in the early afternoon to secure a connecting room to the bridal’s suite. We mutually agreed that it is a very thoughtful gesture but we would all prefer to be informed beforehand to avoid unnecessary panic moments.
Carlton Hotel Singapore: The Executive Room
The executive room at Carlton Hotel Singapore is spacious and beautiful. It was modern, simple and delightful. Despite an additional bedding at the corner of the room, it still feels comfortable and large. There is no obvious sign of wear and tear even though the hotel was last furnished 6 years ago. The beds are made with care and the sheets look really clean.
The bathroom consists of both a bathtub and a standing shower. Similarly, it feels spacious and great despite an additional bathtub in place. The bathroom could be better if the binding is controlled by the person in the bathroom.
The bathtub looks clean and well-maintained. Considering the fact that we were rather short, this bathtub seems really small for an adult to comfortably lie in the tub.
The bathroom amenities are completed – just like any other hotels. I do not really fancy the fragrance of the s eries but it’s always good enough for one night use.
The hotel has also provided handy phone for tourists. You will be able to use the data and tourist pass in the phone for free! We first encountered this feature in Eaton Hotel Hong Kong and we thought that this is a really good feature to be adopted by the hotel.
Unfortunately, we have no additional time to visit other facilities in the hotel.
A quick check on Agoda reveals that it costs roughly S$ 231/night on the weekends. If you are visiting Singapore as a tourist, we will definitely recommend this hotel for its location, room and service.
On the other hand if you are a Singaporean, perhaps you will be able to find a hotel with similar standard but with lower price in other places.
