I had a good experience when I stayed (even just for a night) in Furama Silom during my Bangkok Trip a few months back. So when a friend from Manila decided to visit Singapore for a short holiday, we decided to try Furama hotel here in Singapore.
It took us less the 8 SGD taxi ride from Chinatown MRT station to this hotel. Later on, we found out that there is a bus stop just outside the hotel which will take you to Outram MRT station after two bus stops. There is also a bus that will bring you directly to Harbour Front/Vivo City if you want to visit Sentosa Island.
Checking in is a little bit slow despite the fact that it is not a “peak hour”. But as they say, good things comes to those who wait ‘coz (just like in Bangkok) we got an upgrade from Executive Club Room to Executive Suite.
The executive suit has a separate spacious living room, though the the furnishing is a bit old, it was well kept.
A television (aside from another one inside the bedroom) with VCD player and a mini bar is also available in the living room area.
The king size bed inside the bedroom is a welcome relief, comfortable and not too soft.
Toilet & Bath
It has a very spacious toilet and bathroom, the design is very simple and not to fancy. Toiletries and towels are provided
Water pressure and heater was never a problem.
If you are staying in Executive Club Room or Executive Rooms, you can have you breakfast at the Executive Lounge instead of the hotel restaurant which usually very crowded during breakfast time.
Aside from breakfast, you can also access the executive lounge all day for free refreshments and and evening cocktails for certain hours at night.
+ Another room upgrade so I am really starting to love Furama 😉
+ The staff at the executive lounge is very gracious and professional, very good customer service
+ Though the hotel was having renovation that time, our entire stay was never affected.
