Hotel Review: Conrad Centennial Singapore

An UberX from Singapore Changi airport to the Conrad Singapore was less than 16 SGD. The airport pickup was easy, given that you can specify which terminal and door you’re at in the app.

I had checked in online and chose a corner room on the 22nd floor. This was a deluxe business room, but there was no upgrade to Executive Lounge access for a Hilton Gold. At the time, I was told I could have breakfast at Oscar’s on the first floor since the fourth floor salon by the pool was undergoing renovation.

The corner room was nice and had decent views of the Singapore Flyer, Gardens by the Bay, and the Merlion statue. The furniture and room looked a bit tired and dated, and there¬†weren’t enough outlets in the room, but the bed was comfortable.

On the fourth floor of the hotel, there’s a pool and fitness center. It’s a good place to get some sun, and the fitness center was pretty well-equiped for a hotel gym. The gym could have been cooler and better ventilated, though.

Breakfast at Oscar’s was a little hectic. The buffet selection is quite large (as is common in many Asian hotels), but there was also lots of turnover. This meant that the service was a little lacking, but they generally kept tables turning over.

Breakfast

There were tons of options. There was typical western food like eggs, bacon, sausage, baked beans, potatoes, waffles, and pancakes; there was Asian breakfast food like congee, dim sum, fried rice, and noodles; there was Indian food like daal, aloo, and roti; there was a decent salad bar, lots of fruit, and individual servings of Nutella, kaya jam, and peanut butter; and there was even a dessert and gelato bar with self-serve froyo. The quality of food was good for a hotel buffet, meaning that it wasn’t stellar, but you can probably find something to eat.

Ice cream and cake for breakfast, anyone?

Overall, I had a good stay at the Conrad Singapore. At the time, the room I stayed in was a bit tired-looking, but it was perfectly comfortable, and the hotel is not too far from a subway station, so it’s easy to get around. Breakfast is typical luxury Asian hotel buffet. I think I paid 60,000 Hilton points per night for the hotel.
