We previously stayed at the Quincy hotel in 2009 and wrote a sparkling review. We'd only had three days there before as a stopover and loved the hotel and Singapore so much we thought we'd go for a week this time as an anniversary treat! We were delighted to find that the format at the Quincy was unchanged. As before, our stay included breakfast and evening meal, with afternoon tea and snacks also available. Of course there is fabulous food to be had all over Singapore, but the Quincy offers a varied selection of mainly (but not all) Asian themed dishes which are delicious and plentiful. Drinks are generously supplied, and the Singapore Slings are potent and authentic! The Dining Room staff are pleasant and very helpful (our thanks to Kumar and the rest of the team). In fact all the hotel staff are excellent, nothing is too much trouble. Also included in the price is the facility to have two clothing items laundered per day, which is a big plus with the high temperatures and humidity. There is pool on the 12th floor where towels and refrigerated soft drinks are provided. There is also a gym, sauna and steam room.
As for Singapore itself, while modern buildings now outnumber traditional ones, the temples and other places of worship are magnificent. The number of jaw-dropping attractions that have been added since we were last there is staggering, with the gardens at Marina Bay and the the nightly light show featuring giant metallic trees a must-see. In the centre of town the vast Botanic Gardens are in my top three favourite places on Earth! Singapore is spotlessly clean and almost crime-free. You don't see graffiti, cigarette butts or chewing gum. Travelling around is easy, and their subway rail system (the MRT) is the best I've seen.
I thoroughly recommend the Quincy Hotel and Singapore.
