Historical Traveller Reviews of Parkroyal Kitchener Road Hotel
The lobby is nice, staff excellent, apart from that cleaner. Breakfast is cold, cold beans, cold egg, cold everything.
Renovations, bang, bang, bang 9am-5pm.
We don't normally complain, we are British, but we spent $150 a night for a decent hotel. We didn't get one.
On a plus point, it's in a fantastic location for Mustafas, the MRT and a few 7/11s, as well as places to eat.
Good Stopover Hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms are fairly average. It's just the basics for a stopover, nonetheless still very clean.
Don't forget your swimsuit! The rooftop pool and patio area is quite nice!
The hotel location is bordering the Little India area of Singapore. Public transportation isn't that easily acessible from this hotel, so we used taxi's to get around, which was fine. Once near the Orchard Street area, get on the Hop-on Hop-off bus which takes you to all the major sites around the city. It's the most convenient and economical way to see Singapore.
Ongoing Renovated!from Novice28
My room stayed on 16th floor which newly renovated. So the room is so clean and fantastic. However, I could not sleep from 7:30 am every morning because they are still renovating other rooms! Plus there is another buliding construction opposite the hotel. So you can imagine how they create the noise!
The hotel is very near MRT (Farrer Park Station) so it is very convenient for us to travel to Orchard, Sentosa and others.
Very normal hotel, suitable for short stay onlyfrom mailme2reach
Overall the hotel is just a place to crash after the days work.
Older Budget Hotelfrom lolabug
I was lucky to get assigned one of the "family" rooms on the 6th floor which are much larger than the stardard rooms (which I have stayed in previously). The room has an extra area with table and chairs, a king bed and separate twin bed along with with the separate powder room area and bath. The closet space is also doubled in size.
The hotel is in convinient area near Little India and the Arab part of the city. The subway is a quick walk away to get you the rest of the city.
The pool area is decent in size and there is a small fitness room which worked decently.
The room service was always prompt and there was wireless internet on my floor (for a fee).

Ignorant/inconsiderate clientelefrom kwaka58
The lobby is clean and neat, but with only two out of three lifts working, and the large tour/family groups which this hotel seems to specialise in, any trip up or down could take up to ten minutes or more, not counting people just barging through in front of you. Rooms are definitely showing their age, bordering on shabby, and the plumbing is easily the loudest I have heard anywhere in the world. When returning from our friends room to ours, I could hear, in the hallway, a guest showering in their room, and I could still hear the plumbing in my room, six rooms away. Soundproofing is obviously something that was never built into this hotel, as I found out at three o'clock in the morning when a family unit decided to come home from Mustafas and let their "little angels" run loose in the hallway.
Breakfast in the "restaraunt" was very ordinary and although the service was there it wasn't anything to write home about.
Would we stay there again? Until the rooms are refurbished and the hotels owners stop pandering to the type of clientele who think that just because they can afford an airfare, that they have the right to be rude, ignorant, inconsiderate and generally be a bad advertisement for their country (did I forget anything??), definitely NO!!
The worst part about the whole episode is that it was our friends first experience of Singapore, and contrasted very noticeably with our time in Bangkok, which was a pleasure in every respect.
Top Local Tips for Singapore
Reliable Taxis Singapore has very realiable metered taxis can take you to any corner of Singapore.
Pulau Uban Make sure you go to Pulau Uban- a bum boat leaves from Changi Village costs $2 but the seafood and scenery available over there is divine. It is like taking a step back in time
Little India on Sundays! DO NOT GO TO LITTLE INDIA ON SUNDAYS. We had been warned also. It is very very very busy. Alot of pickpocketing and bag snatching goes on. We couldnt believe how many people were there. We took photos from our hotel room as a result. Any other day, Little India is wonderful!
