They try harder here to give more personal service than in other Asian city hotels and with just 40 spacious rooms - they can succeed. 'Lovely staff' reports one guest; 'like a second home' says another. You get slick metropolitan design, and impressive business facilities.
  On a recent visit our SE Asia editor Bridgett Walters was equally impressed. 'I liked the hotel very much. It is modern and my room was large and well set out with a huge TV. I was on the 6th floor, which they call the Ladies' Floor because it is just for female travellers - a great idea welcomed by many a single female traveller.
  'The swimming pool on the roof has fantastic views and when I was there late in the afternoon and mid morning there was not a single other person in the pool.
  'The other guests I saw in the hotel were mostly in their 30s or 40s and I didn't see many - if any children. It definitely had a less corporate feel about it than other Singapore hotels.'
  There's no spa here but an arrangement is in place with the Eden spa in the next door street, and this gives you a discount. Raffles is next door.
