If you are looking for 4 or 5 star hotel this is not the place for you. but if you are looking for a comfortable place to stay that is an easy taxi ride to everywhere this is a good place to stay. there is a bus stop right out front of the hotel and an easy walk to to two shopping centres and the train station. If you are looking for fast food outlets or some nice little bars and restiraunts there are plenty close at hand within easy walking distance. In the shopping centre with McDonalds at it there is a resturaunt called Jacks Place well with going too great food and friendly staff and resonably priced. The rooms are quite large and comfortable but they are dated. The bar fridge prices are very reasonable the bed is large and compfortable and I found the staff helpful and friendly.All in all as long as you are not expecting anything flash a good reasonable priced hotel to stay in. I recomend it to people who are not to fussy and are looking for a bed to sleep on and and easy access to all the Singapore have to offer, But again if you are looking for a up market hotel this is not the place for you. My wife and I would have no problem staying there again.

Room tip: ask for delux room and late check out if you need it

My daughter stayed here recently as part of a sports tour group. Prior to the trip we'd been alarmed at TA reports of a brothel on the second floor and a hostess bar in the basement frequented by "decrepit Chinese gentlemen tourists" entertaining young girls, but we were assured by the organisers that the "VIP lounge" (euphemisms abound) had been closed and the hotel was safe and respectable. Absolutely not so. Plenty of lone, inappropriately dressed young women were to be spotted making a beeline for the second floor, and the basement lounge was thriving.

Consistent with the general tenor of the hotel, the rooms were also filthy - the worst my daughter has ever stayed in, and she's experienced plenty, from the cheap and cheerful to the very luxurious. Having checked in and been shown an ancient video in broken English on fire safety, they went to their dark and damp-smelling room, with its repulsively filthy curtains. The bathrooms had no ventilation and flooded easily, though the water was hot. The bedlinen was stained and badly in need of replacing, as were the towels and the carpeting. My daughter and her room-mates wore their own flip-flops in the bathroom, used their own towels, and my daughter fortunately had a sleeping bag liner with her so she slept in that.

The breakfast consisted of deep fried prawns, dumplings, rice, soggy hash browns, rotis, stale fruit loops and bowls of tinned fruit in iced water, all a bit risky so the toast was the safest option.

The pool wasn't too bad, fairly clean, and the leaves in it on the first day had been cleaned out by the second.

All in all an awful place, little wonder one honeymooning reviewer wept when she saw her room. My daughter asked if I could give it no stars. I said no, I had to give it one. What, not even half a star, she replied. Definitely the lowlight of an otherwise great trip. You have been warned.

Room tip: The only way you'd get a good room is by booking ELSEWHERE.

Excellent value with a Singapore stopover deal. Nice hotel. All the amenities, of the more expensive hotels. Reception excellent, with knowledge for bus(at door) or train(5 mins), to get you around to attractions. A way out, but with transport, not a problem. Beds were comfortable, rooms were spacious. Had all the shampoos, etc. In a quiet area of Singapore

My family and i have just returned from a 14 day trip, 7 daysin Phuket fantastic, Then 7 days in Singapore Beautiful...except the Hotel was a Disgrace!
The Hotel Royal at Newton Singapore was disgusting! Not only it is a filthy place, you get NO service what soever, and they try to charge you for extras you didnt have and the room charge twice. Then they get the manager who then speaks rudely to you until you show them your receipts you got at check in.No apology, nothing. It is advertised as a lovely hotel, great for the family...not. Besides the filth in the room (sheets dirty/stained) (bathroom covered in mould) (all air conditioner vents moulding in the rooms and lobby)It has 2 clubs for men only if you know what i mean. I only found this out when we decided to go to the kareoke bar and found it to be a girly bar for men, i wasnt impressed that my children had to see that!
We have travelled to Singapore more than this trip and i advise all travellers to steer clear of this one! You'd be better staying at the cheap Fragrance or Hotel 81 chains! I advised the Hotel myself I would tell everyone i know about there disgusting establishment! BEWARE!!!!

Room tip: Dont stay there for the $1500 we paid we could have stayed somewhere nicer! I would have taken more pics but i wanted to try and enjoy some of my holiday!
