Harbour Ville Hotel Singapore Review

Tuesday, September 19, 2017


The entire family went to Singapore again for a 5-day vacation and this time we opted for a practical accommodation. The itinerary I prepared had us out all day. We just need a decent hotel to rest and sleep. I searched on google, read blog and TripAdvisor reviews before finally deciding on booking Harbour Ville Hotel.

Location

Harbour Ville Hotel is two bus stops away from Vivo City via Bus 61 or Bus 143

If you are travelling via MRT, you can reach the hotel via the Green Line (East-West Line) and alight at Outram Park or the Purple Line (North-East Line) Harbourfront Station. 

From Outram Park, you have to board Bus 61 or 166, opposite Hong Lim Complex. Alight at the 6th stop (St. Teresa Church) or 7th stop (Keppel Distripark). 

If you are coming from Harbourfront Station, Board Bus 61 or 143 and alight at the third stop in front of Harbour Suites.

Rooms


I booked three rooms: two standard queen and one standard single. The standard queen room is only 14 square meters while the standard single is 11 square meters. It's difficult to move around in the cramped room especially if you have big luggage. Closet space is very limited. The superior queen is a bit spacious with 18 square meters room size while the superior twin is 20 square meters.

Although the room and the bathroom are small, they are very clean and well-maintained. 

Breakfast


The room rates do not include breakfast. I paid an additional of S$5 for the buffet breakfast which I somehow regretted. The buffet choices are: fried rice, sunny side up egg, chicken sausage, potato wedges, beans, chicken nuggets, white bread, peanut butter spread, strawberry jam, cereals and milk, brewed coffee and Nescafe latte, cappuccino, and black coffee.

It's actually worth it for the the S$5 price since it's a buffet. The problem is that we stayed there for 5 days and we had the same breakfast every single day. I just wish they serve a different set every day. The latte is delicious though.

Freebies


The complimentary WiFi in the room is fast and reliable. But what I like most is the Handy Phone. It's a smart phone provided in every room that you can bring with you as you explore Singapore. You can stay connected with families and friends while overseas at no extra charge. Enjoy free local calls and free international calls to India, China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines. You can also navigate the streets of Singapore with the help of interactive map installed.

Will I consider staying at Harbour Ville again?

Yes. Learning from experience, I will book the Superior Queen which I believe will only cost me an additional S$5 instead of paying for the S$5 breakfast. There's a nearby hawker center that is open for breakfast.

The staff at the hotel are very accommodating and helpful. I'm also glad there are Filipinos working at Harbour Ville Hotel.
