For the past several trips to Singapore, we’ve always made it a point to stay in either Orchard Road or Marina Bay, but when we flew back in January, the second leg brought us to another part of the city; although during the first leg, we stayed in the Marina Bay area, which you can read about here – Hotel Review: Marina Mandarin Singapore by Meritus.
This time around, we chose a hotel near Kampong Glam, namely: ParkRoyal on Beach Road, and it certainly did not disappoint. As part of the Pan Pacific Hotel & Resorts chain, we definitely got beyond what we paid for, as the room rate we got was priced at around US$170 per night. And now, onto the specifics of the hotel.
Situated in the middle of Singapore’s city centre, yet hidden within the confines of the more quiet part of the city, ParkRoyal on Beach Road offers a relaxing stay for guests – be it if you’re staying there for business or leisure. Located right in front of a bus stop, it provides easy access to any part of Singapore, no matter how far – although Singapore is accessible regardless of the area you’re in, ParkRoyal on Beach Road’s proximity just makes it even more convenient. In addition to this, it sits right in front of Kampong Glam and is within 10 minutes walking distance to Bugis, which makes it all the more a great base for your stay in Singapore.
Just as the location proved to be well-worth the stay, the accommodation doesn’t fall short either. The room we got was the Superior Room, and though it is the most basic one among the bunch, I loved everything about it! Aside from being spacious as it covers 35 square meters, all the furnitures were perfectly placed, allowing tons of space to move around in.
With a massive king-sized bed, a television, a work-desk, couches, a fully-stocked mini bar, complimentary bottled water, tea & coffee, a hair dryer, security safe, and ironing facilities, the room has everything you need from the bedroom to the bathroom. Even the toilet & bath gave us more than enough room to move around in, as it housed a shower, a toilet, and a sink, complete with St. Gregory Spa toiletries to boot.
Facilities & Amenities
Now, the facilities & amenities of ParkRoyal on Beach Road will leave you satisfied with your stay, without having to venture out, as they have 24-hour security, a half-Olympic sized outdoor pool overlooking the downtown Skyline, a fully-equipped gym, a spa, business services, as well as a tour desk. Two of the hotel’s facilities that we enjoyed the most, however, are the pool and the gym, pictured below.
ParkRoyal on Beach Road Singapore perfectly puts together comfort and relaxation. Spending nearly a week checked-in, I realized that it’s one of the best hotels to stay in the city not only short-term, but even more-so long-term, given that they have everything you would need.
Surely, if ever I find myself flying back to Singapore, ParkRoyal on Beach Road would be my top choice, as it not only is fantastic in terms of its facilities, amenities, accommodation & location, but it is priced reasonably. That being said, I would definitely recommend it to anyone, as it won’t make that big of a dent on your budget anyway; so what are you waiting for? Book ParkRoyal on Beach Road for your trip to Singapore, and you’ll definitely have the best stay!
