Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay

Was at Holiday Inn Express for an overnight staycation!

Before I say anything about the hotel… Let’s talk about location!

Singapore is a small place with convenient public transport.

The hotel’s location is not perfect, but the Central Mall and Central Square are just across it if you’re looking for restaurants.

10 minutes walk to Chinatown MRT, Clark Quay MRT and Robertson Quay.

Taxis are available, but since this is Singapore, I suggest that you install Uber/Grab!

As for the hotel… It’s small.

The room has the basic stuff. (Although I can’t seem to remember seeing a safe)

Toiletries are limited, but you can request for a shaver and comb if needed.

Like other Singapore hotels, they will provide a free mobile phone with free data and local calls… Since the device runs on Android, you can also use it as a hotspot for other devices.

Alarm clock/phone speaker is available if you love listening to music.

On the roof top, they have the lap pool, jacuzzi and park. Don’t expect too much from the view, the hotel is basically in the middle of the city.

DIY Laundry is available on the 2nd floor and gym is also on the roof top… I didn’t have time to go around but both are mentioned on the hotel’s website.

As for the breakfast… Nothing to write about, but I’ve seen worst from neighboring hotels (so I guess it’s still a positive).

I guess people stay in Holiday Inn because of brand familiarity.

If you need the location, then Holiday Inn Express is ok. There are cheaper hotels nearby which offers a bigger room, better facilities and better location… But they will not have the Holiday Inn brand.
