Historical Traveller Reviews of Allson Hotel

Simply Great

from daveyboy9
This hotel is perfect if you wish to be close to the MRT which provides easy access into town. 24hr food court right next door as well. The Allson is definitely an 3.5 star hotel. The rooms are a very good size and the bathroom also of good size. When booking, try to get your breakfast included. The normal rate is 35 SGD per day per person and if you are an Allson guest, you get 50% off. The breakfast is open to all and not just Allson guests. However 17.5 SGD per person per day for breakfast is high for Singapore standards but it is a buffet breakkfast. There are other better value near by.

Considering how incredibly cheap this hotel is, it was a load better than I expected. Only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is that the workout room had no proper airconditioning in it. However who goes to the gym on hols anyway!

love the central location

from safircraze
i stayed at allson couple of times. now the pros: it's inexpensive, it's pretty centralised, about five mins walk to bugis junction MRT and Raffless hospital, room is of good size, it has coffee/tea making facility, bathroom is clean, though smallish, and the free buffet breakfast was good for the price charged.
the cons: room dated, the reception is NOT smiling at all, hard to get cab (well, that if you don't wanna walk when rains), the lift is very very small, the tv channel selection is very poor. overall, i would stay for the location, though service can be very well improved, i guess.

Great location

from boredtraveller
Singapore was my last stop of a 3 month trip around Asia, so I decided to spend a little more than usual and have a decent hotel room! I was very impressed with the Allson - for me, location is very important and this was in an excellent position. In walking distance to the Raffles and Orchard Road as well as having a shopping centre, multiplex cinema and many restaurants and cafes and fast-food joints in the immediate vicinity. It was also well-located for public transport and a couple of minutes walk gets you to an underground station from where you can get to anywhere in Singapore.

The rooms were large with air-con, mini-bar, TV, etc. The view from the room I stayed in looked out over Singapore towards the Raffles Plaza and although not the prettiest, it was certainly interesting. The bathroom was of an excellent standard - very clean and well-equipped and I had a much sought-after hot bath which was a bonus!

The breakfast was also very good - a very big buffet selection with lots of choices - both Western and Asian style. Certainly enough to keep you going until an evening meal, that's for sure. On my last day, I had to leave at 5am and if you let them know the day before, they will do a take-away breakfast for you.

I only booked the hotel the day before I arrived and when I got there, they hadn't got details of my reservation, but this was easily rectified - they just hadn't pulled the details off the computer. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and booked me a taxi to the airport when I had to leave.

Overall, I throughly recommend staying at this hotel if you're looking for a quality hotel right in the centre of Singapore.

Pleasant Stay

from jjsmith
We stopped in Singapore for 4 days after a 3 month trip around Europe. We were happy with the Allson hotel. The rooms were adequate and clean and the location was very good.

The self service laundry was a real plus as we had been travelling for while! Its also located next to the pool so we could relax and have a swim while waiting for our laundry.

The only thing that bothered us was the early morning arrival of the cleaning staff (be warned - they arrive as early as 8am!). We were quite jet lagged so wanted to sleep in on the first morning. Unfortuately we had no less than 4 disruptions from the cleaning staff (even after asking them to come later the first time they called!). Perhaps something we should have sorted out with reception the night before.

Another tip - the mini bar and room service prices are steep so use the 7-11 which is located right next door!

Still Good

from famadven
First stayed here 19years ago (was the Tai Pan Ramada then) and have stayed in a heap of hotels in Singapore since. Hotel in excellent location; good rooms and fantastic water pressure! We were two families with four kids so the pool was a good asset. Having a self serve laundry was great as we had been travelling for a month! Would highly recommend this hotel.

Loved the Allson

from A TripAdvisor Member
Have just spent 9 days at the Allson and were more than happy woth the hotel. great location, large bedroom and bathroom and the breakfasts were really nice. The staff could not have been more helpful. We would not go anywhere else...and we have stayed in Singapore at at least 8 different hotels.

very nice

from vipster187
after reading many reviews, my family and i went to the allson with some trepidation to say the least! i am happy to say that the hotel was lovely. the room was decorated in cherry wood to give it that old chinese style and it was done nicely. deluxe rooms and bathrooms not very big but enough for me, my wife and our 7 month old daughter to stay in for 9 nights. breakfast was very nice, and the staff were very helpful. the location of the hotel is brilliant....10 mins from MRT, 15 min walk to orchard road or suntec city (shopping areas), lots of other shopping areas within 5 or 10 mins walk....walked so much that we ended up saving a lot of money on taxis, money which was wisely spent on more shopping! pool and fitness room a bit small but perfectly adequate and well maintained.... overall, a great hotel for families that won't break the bank and which is in a great location in the heart of lovely singapore....enjoy!

Good value.

from patsy09
We were very pleasantly surprised after reading some of the reviews. We got a very friendly & helpful welcome at 2am with 2 children in tow. The rooms were a bit dated but were clean and we had more than enough space - thank goodness for the air conditioning controls! Breakfast was a substantial buffet - even our 2 fussy children were impressed. The pool is small but we were glad to have it to dip into as it was so hot and humid. It was more than adequate for our needs - we had better things to do than sit in our room anyway!

Loved the location

from pavi77
Loved this hotel. It is centrally located which is a big plus point. Close to MRT , Bus and taxi stands.

The hotel itself is quite nice, clean and has good basic amenities. The pool is a good plus point and so are the resaturants in the hotel.

The buffet breakfast that was provided with the room was quite elaborate and good.

Was worth staying in this place and would recommend people to stay there when they visit singapore.

Central Location

from travellerandquilter
Stayed here for 4 nights mid January. Dated rooms but clean, bathroom small and dated but clean. 2 adults and 1 child stayed in 1 room. Close feeling but we had enough room and we weren't there that much. Check in and out not overly friendly and directions to lift vague when it was late at night. Breakfast was good with a variety of hot and cold dishes. Great location with a short walk to one of three MRT stations. Concierge (sorry about spelling) was very helpful with directions and when we neede taxi. Would stay there again

Top Local Tips for Singapore

Riverfront Adventures Of an evening all the hawkers are out plying for your patronage at the various restaurants along the riverfront. While novel at first it can get a little annoying... my tip is to not make eye contact, that way you can ignore them. Same is true for some of the hawkers at street markets.

Rain It rains normally in the afternoon. Be sure you have your umbrella with you!

Santosa Island Very enjoyable trip coming back on cable car
