Historical Traveller Reviews of The Elizabeth Hotel
There are better places to stay in Singaporefrom Smog
The location too could pose a problem for some people. It is a 15 minute hilly walk to the main Orchard Road area and the nearest MRT station. Although this may not seem far, in the heat and humidity of Singapore it is a very hot and sweaty experience.
I have stayed in Singapore 3 times now and this was by far the worst hotel I have stayed in. The Orchard Parade hotel and the Phoenix (no swimming pool) were a much better class of hotel and far better located. There are some alterations going on at the Elizabeth at the moment - maybe it will be better then, but for now I would choose somewhere else.
worse than the reviews!!!from travelleraust
I immediately called reception and asked for another room. They told me they were fully booked and they would do the best they could. In the meanwhile the housekeeper came up and I showed her the dirty bathroom, she said she would find another room.
After waiting 1 long hr, they said they had prepared another room - it was the next door room!!! It was nearly just as dirty. I gave up and left the hotel. I tried to get some compensation but they were not forthcoming. They were most unhelpful at the reception desk. NEVER AGAIN. p.s I went then to the regents hotel and it was fabulous.
It does not pay to get a cheap place, this hotel was more like a 3 star hotel and definately not 4 star.
Beautiful rooms, nice hotelfrom EliLena
Let down at the Elizabethfrom meguin
Not the best experiencefrom lee2
Not upto 4 star standardfrom RickRouse
I personally found that the rooms were of poor quality, the food wasn't upto much and the staff weren't particularly friendly. I think i expect more from a 4 star hotel when compared to others that i've stayed in whilst in Singapore.
The location however is excellent, very close to Orchard Road and Lucky Plaza. I don't think however that I will be returning to the Elizabeth.
tired!from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed here for 1 night (fortunately) and was not at all impressed.
Hotel is about 14 yrs old and in dire need of a refurb, which they're apparently undertaking. We were placed on a floor that was undergoing renovations - no noise issues, but the walls & floor of the corridors were covered with a white material and taped down with duct tape which wasn't a pleasant sight. Didn't bother complaining since only there for 1 nite.
Room was very tired and dark. Bathroom had that old & dirty feel to it. In fact the room had that dirty feel to it, so much so that we wouldn't walk around barefoot! All in all we just wanted to spend as little time as possible in the room.
Location is the only thing going for it. But would definitely recommend the York Hotel (just opposite), where my friend stayed. Rooms were MUCH bigger, clean and actually nice. Same price bracket too.
Much better than I expected from your reviewers sommentsfrom Sunny Sandra
Good City Hotelfrom Frutsch
A pleasant surprisefrom karin stockholm
Elizabeth is a medium size hotel with a small and intimate Lobby, attentive staff at the reception and a nice restaurant that serves western food but with some local choices too. The rooms are well appointed and in good condition. All lamps, technical stuff and air con worked. The staff was very helpful when I wanted to change room and have separate beds as my daughter was coming to visit me. As she is not fond of riding elevators it is good to know that two of the four are elevators on the outside with windows so you feel less “trapped”. The Elizabeth has a small but well maintained gym and over all it is a very friendly and easy going atmosphere in the hotel. The pool is not huge but big enough to take some laps in. It is located in a beautiful little garden with trees that give you shade. You can also have your meals served by the poolside. Being a business woman who travels frequently I appreciate a hassle free stay in a personal and relaxing environment at a good rate. Finally what can be improved? Make sure the greenery don’ t grow too high so that there will be no sun at all by the pool and also for elderly it might be tricky to get in our out of the bad tub as it is a bit high. But as I said in the headline- Elizabeth was a pleasant surprise!.
Top Local Tips for Singapore
Loved the Botanic Gardens A visit to the Botanic gardens is a must, especially the Orchids. We also had an excellent 'business mans lunch' at the Halia Restaurant within the gardens. Excellent service and food quality.
Don't waste money eating at the hotel Don't waste money eating at the hotel. There are lots of better places to eat within a 10-15min walk - that are of a much higher standard. According to the CS Manager, the Food & Beverage services are contracted out by the hotel. My suggestion would be that the Elizabeth gives some serious thought to reviewing its catering contract !!
Bugis Take a walk around Bugis Junction and the markets before you buy anywhere else. Also good idea to take a tape measure with you as the sizes are different - don't plan on buying a lot of bargains if you're much larger than size 16 Australian!!!
