Furama City Centre
Ranked #298 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 24 June 2012

This was a spotlessly clean city hotel close to all amenities. 5 minute walk to the river where you could stroll along and take in the many bars and restaurants Singapore has to offer. The subway station is round the corner and very efficient with trains every few minutes. We went all over, a particular favourite being Little India where we had the best Indian food ever.
The breakfasts at the Furama are sumptuous, offering every cuisine and plenty of dim sum, Singapore fried rice, etc. The bars around are open late and are welcoming. It is situated on the edge of Chinatown. Nothing is too much trouble for the friendly staff.

Room Tip: They all have City views, and are quiet though in a busy part of town.

Hotel itself is good average! Location excellent. Club level rooms are newly built but designer was not thinking what he is doing! You enter the room and first thing you meet is the sink! They decided to put the bath in the room, but to do this they moved sink out to the entrance! Maybe this should be the understanding of ultimate luxury - do not know!
Standard rooms are much better.
Food buffet is good if you like asian food. From european side was on one day pasta (very tasty!) on other beef stew. Only one dish next to 20 asian dishes. This shows clearly the orientation of the all thing.
Good hotel should be "home away from home" - this one is unfortunately not and this mainly because of food.

The facade of the hotel really shows it age, old and outdated, once inside the lobby is quite busy and has that 80's feel in terms of the decor. Room is pretty small for the Superior, with no place to put the luggage, good thing it has been renovated and has the usual facilities and amenities including iron+ironing board, flat screen TV and Wifi (chargeable at SGD 25 for 24 hours). Unfortunately, the service is a hit and miss, arrived with a big luggage but was not offered any assistance from the hotel staffs, have to carry the luggage by myself to the room, no minibar inside the room just an empty fridge, check in was so so, location was ok, close to Clarke Quay MRT station, shopping arcade in the hotel looks very old and dark and empty, luckily there are lots of other shopping centers nearby such as Central or the old People's Park. Considering the price I paid, there are better and newer options for hotels within the same price range in Singapore.

We stayed here for 3 days June 2012 and we would use it again. The lobby is impressive and all the staff are very friendly and efficient. Our room was well appointed on the 16th floor with good views. Our friend had a single room on the 4th floor with average views. Pity about the smog in Singapore but there's not much can be done about that. Everything was neat and clean and the restaurant is great. Breakfast was included with our deal and the variety is good. Only criticism is that bacon wasn't bacon (it was thinly sliced beef) and much of the food wasn't replenished or heated as it should have been. Despite that we left with a full stomach each morning. The location of the hotel is great with a short walk to shopping malls, Chinatown and Clark Quay. We would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Always ask for a free upgrade and you want a room facing the Singapore Flyer (big Ferris wheel).

Stayed at the hotel for a night and was not too impressed...the hotel looks dated and the lobby is extremely gloomy. I believe this property is in urgent need of an upgrade. The location is the main draw to this property...very close to the night life district as well as Chinatown. A short walk from the hotel is the MRT, so connectivity is also good. The room has all that I required for a night's stay....safe, robes, iron board, mini bar et al. BUT it felt a bit dated. The swimming pool was a let down in terms of size and maintenance - cant really complain as I did'nt use it. The front desk staff were pleasant but check in took a while. Overall it is a good place for a short stay.
