Historical Traveller Reviews of Carlton Hotel
Great locationfrom tarynsmum
Only gripe would be no in-room safe or ironing board, but these were minor. Nice pool area, quick lifts, quiet hotel, what more could you ask for.
wonderful stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great for pricefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Swimming pool was good for a dip and the hotel restaurant in the lobby had a nice menu at a decent price if you wanted to crash after your first day.
Great hotel in a great locationfrom Taniquan
OK - but......from Juan45
Massage facilities are very reasonable - 40 Singapore dollars for an hour. Worth thinking about if you have a late onward flight, as you get the chance of a last shower before the journey.
On the return journey I stayed at the Raffles Plaza - infinitely better for about the same price
Mixed Feelingsfrom Bbpink
Room itself is a bit below expectation, it's clean and the beds, duvet and pillows are comfy. View is ok, no problem with the shower and a/c. However, the bathroom is a bit small and we had to battle with the bathtub plug, it's stuck and the water couldn't go through. First time we called reception, someone was sent within 20 minutes and took out the plug. However, the cleaning lady wasn't aware and put the plug back in the next day. So we have to call reception again and it took over an hour and a half and 4 calls to reception and housekeeping before someone finally shows up to fix the problem. Was quite stressed out as we would like to shower before we go out and we ended up wasting over an hour sitting and waiting in the room.
Also needed two dresses steamed, they picked them up Thu. afternoon and I was told they will be ready Fri. before 11am. Was charged S$24 for this which is probably reasonable for 4 star hotels. However, nothing appeared by Fri. noon and so had to call the laundry to check and they were then sent back to me.
Breakfast were included and they are quite nice. We requested for late check out but they were unable to accomodate as the hotel is quite full. So we checked out at noon, left our luggage in the lobby and were able to use the swimming pool, towels and showers for the afternoon before we left. Also, there was no safe in the room and therefore we had to leave our passport and cash in our luggage.
The chimes is right opposite and the Raffles shopping mall is less than 10 minutes walk which has a supermarket and a food court. The location is not bad, takes around 15 minutes and S$6-7 to take a cab to get to Wisma Atria on Orchard Road. Needed to book a cab to get to a friend's wedding and the reception took care of this without a hitch.
It is difficult to give an overall impression and there were both outstanding and appalling services. I guess if it wasn't the bathroom incident, I would probably return to this hotel.
Great location and good valuefrom cczmark
Decent pool and gym.
Raffles hotel is opposite. A great selection of restaurants and bars (western/japanese)at Chijmes centre across the road. Inhouse noodle restaurant good food and value. We booked online directly from the hotels website which seemed to be the cheapest option. Would go back to this hotel.

Top Local Tips for Singapore
Taxis Taxis in Singapore are so cheap to use, we used them a lot but make sure you get a metered one, blue in colour and check the rates if your not sure where your going.
taxi company Use the BLUE taxi company,they have reasonably new cabs,take you directly where you ask to go. Some of the others took us on tours or long way
MRT - load up your card With the regular use of the convenient MRT, take advantage of loading up an MRT ticket with prepaid credit. It saves the regular need for $1 deposits on your card. Very easy! Also, don't be afraid to walk around, you might find it only a 5minute walk between some inner MRT stations! Plus you get to see the interesting surrounds this way!
