    Arrived 8.30 am being the first from the cruise - advised by desk on 5th floor that they were very busy with lots of people booking in and out (you know what, I don't really want to hear that seeing they had our reservation one year in advance and its up to the Hotel to organise things to cater for that amount.) Were advised book-ins not till 2pm. OK - but what happened when other people from cruise arrived at front desk after us and between 9pm and 2.20pm were led up to their rooms - why could they not get the rooms cleaned up for the first arrivals...Read More

    Near to business centre and yet walking distance to the local Chinatown. Not quite a luxury hotel but above average at a good location

    Peninsula Excelsior Hotel was fantastic.
    Hotel is very clean and is located centraly. I stayed in a floor/room with amazing view over the harbor. Ask for that if that is what you want. The hotel staff are great and they allowed me to check in early and check out late with no extra charge. Breakfast was nice and was my main meal there. The swimming pool was great, everything is there in the gym and a cold beer is all ways available. It is best location in Singapore, near clarke que, centrally located near MRT ... I will be back.

    Hotel is awesome. Super Clean with all the modern amenities. I stayed on the top floor with amazing view of the harbour front. Hotel staff great and they allowed me to check in on 7 AM in the morning with no extra charge. They also allowed us to check in without taking any money/deposits as we had to go outside to exchange our currency. Breakfast was nice and so was the evening snack. Staff was super cordial and was always inquiring if we would need anything. They also allowed us to check out late in the evening without any extra charge.

    Great location at reasonable price. Had a room facing the par with great views of the sunset. Shopping and groceries in the same building ideal for a rainy day. Would defiantly return.

OK - but what happened when other people from cruise arrived at front desk after us and between 9pm and 2.20pm were led up to their rooms - why could they not get the rooms cleaned up for the first arrivals in the hotel????? Their attitude on the front desk left much to be desired compared to other hotels we have stayed in around the world with them not once uttering a simple please or thank you. Would never recommend this hotel to anybody. PS - Our room finally cleaned to 2.20pm after enquiring four times.
