This is perhaps a slightly briefer write up than I’d normally do for a hotel, but I got to the hotel, crashed, got up, showered and left. I do feel rather guilty for booking the Conrad as I suspect a Premier Inn would probably have fit the bill just as well, however they did give me an absolutely stunning room.
Anyway, to continue the story of my trip, I landed in Singapore off my utterly brilliant flight with Qantas. There was perhaps a ten minute wait for immigration to enter Singapore and then around another thirty for my bag to come off.
I was actually pretty tired by this point so just ordered an Uber to take me to the hotel, the Conrad Centennial Singapore. After around another 30 minutes, my Uber pulled up outside the hotel and immediately there was a member of staff there asking if I needed any help. I politely declined and wandered into reception.
Check-in was very efficient and the lady explained that they had upgraded me to suite on the 11th floor which was great of them. The first challenge was actually finding the right floor on the elevator. For some reason, they appeared to have all of the numbers in a seemingly random order.
However when I eventually found the button for 11 and then got to room 1101, I was very impressed.
Immediately upon entering the room, to my left was the minibar, Nespresso machine kettle and some glasses. There were also a couple of bottles of water there.
To the right was another storage area. Straight ahead was a work desk, which a little annoyingly only had a relatively inaccessible plug socket on the floor, as opposed to a bank of sockets built into the desk.
However the room opened up into a huge sitting area. There was a flat screen TV built into the wall. Plus there was a lovely welcome amenity of a box of chocolates and fruit bowl.
I wandered into the bedroom and the lovely king-size bed. The bed side tables had some more bottled water next to them, plus a multi-way plug socket and USB socket for charging. The bed itself had a little cuddly toy on it and was super comfortable.
There was also a huge amount of wardrobe space, fluffy robes and even a little make-up mirror built in.
Moving into the bathroom, that was equally highly specified. There were two sinks, plus an array of Shanghai Tang toiletries. In addition to the rain shower, there was a huge bathtub as well complete with rubber ducky.
With that, I sank into the bed and slept. Lots.
So much so that I didn’t even make it to breakfast, nor the Executive Lounge, nor the gym, nor, er, anything else. Which for the purposes of a travel blog is pretty bloody useless, however hope you’ll excuse me this one time!
The bit that I did use, the room, was wonderfully appointed, in immaculate condition, and definitely one of the nicest hotel rooms I’ve spent time in. From that perspective, and surely the most important part of any hotel stay, the Conrad Singapore earns top marks from me.
