Hotel Telegraph Singapore
Nice clean hotel centrally located not far from Chinatown & Bay of Gardens Staff were very polite & helpful I booked a Balcony Suite the room was large with 3 m ceilings Overall a very good experience Thanks Mark
Modern classy with a bit of funk
Love the room, it’s spacious and comfortable. Colour scheme is on the cool side, nonetheless inviting. Little details (red hands outstretched from the wall waiting to hold your towel/bathrobe) in the room are so cute. Thrilled that the location is right next to the well known hawker and many streets filled with eateries, so much buzz, but once you enter the hotel, it’s calm and peaceful. Definitely worth it to pay more and get a room with the bathtub. Cons: 1. air conditioner is pretty cold and despite trying to set it warmer, it didn’t work well. (Turning it off works well for me as the room was very much well chilled to last through the night even without the A/C running) 2. When using the shower, it is easy for water to run out (asking for an additional floor towel will easily resolve that)
Nice hotel let down by damp and musty rooms
We had a 2 night stay in a Cosy room which I believe is the most basic offering and it was fine for a couple of days. The shower was excellent and there’s a fancy home-automation setup for controlling lights and curtains. Storage space was a bit of an issue so this would not be a great option for someone needing to unpack a lot of stuff or staying for several days. Inevitably there is minimal space to store suitcases which ended up piled in a corner. We found the staff helpful and friendly. The breakfast was very good with a fair selection of local and European style options. The rooftop swimming pool is nice at the end of a day’s sightseeing. The big turn-off, for us, is that the rooms are damp; I mean damp; they smell damp and musty and everything in them feels damp. Clothes in the closet and drawers ended up feeling damp. I have never experienced this in a hotel (with aircon) before and can only assume there is an issue with the air conditioning system..We were shown 3 alternative rooms on different floors and all were the same so the issue was not localised. I have since seen other reviews making this comment. Sadly, for this reason we would not stay again and I could not recommend it.
Good location but overpriced
Location is great. However, I found the breakfast abit underwhelming since they do charge 42SGD additional if breakfast is not included. Both days the breakfast are the same. I would recommend not paying for it and instead eat out.
Nice and convenient hotel
Picked this hotel mainly for its location beside the hawker center. Just found it weird that the bathroom walls were glass. Also saw this on our next hotel in the Philippines. What is it with these hotels glass walls for bathrooms?!?
Nice hotel with rooftop pool & bar
It’s a lovely hotel right in the middle of the city. Perfect for a quick weekend break with no people in the CBD. Close to a lot of places. Plus Lau Pa Sat and the Satay stalls at night are just outside the hotel. Loved the rooftop pool and bar, which was great for relaxation.
a bit disappointing stay
Staff was friendly and the location was good, but the hotel is pretty old and "tired", room was dark and damp. I kindly asked room to higher floor, but got room in 2nd floor with view to the wall.
