              Two Weeks In Singapore”

              The East Coast area of Singapore is ideally located and will be even more so when the Marine Parade MRT line is completed. The Holiday Inn Express - Katong is that hidden gem that is not so hidden anymore. The room was small but adequate. The shower was wonderful and the staff, both at the front desk, the breakfast area and the cleaning crew were professional and very friendly for Singapore. I was especially impressed with the breakfast. It was basic but delicious. You are just a few hundred meters from the bus stop and when the MRT is finished the hotel will probably be not much further from a station. It was easy to take a bus and then walk under the ECP to the East Coast Park which is a wonderful place to enjoy the water and sand and trees and biking. Kudos to the management and staff of the hotel. I will be back. :)

              Good Rival for V Hotel Lavender”

              V Hotel Lavender is rated 4 stars while Holiday Inn Express Singapore Katong is rated 3 stars, I think the latter really does give the former a run for its money in terms of price, value, interior finishings and location. I booked because pricing was similar and it's newly renovated. Its accessibility is tops, just walk around 112 Katong there's plenty of food or cut through Roxy Square/Grand Mercure backlane to get to Parkway Parade. With the upcoming MRT on the East Coast , getting around will be easier. Taking a Grab into town is only 12-15mins. Not too fond of the breakfast spread (minuscule pancake size) but pleasantly surprised it's under IHG group same as Hotel Indigo right next door which is more on the range of Grand Mercure. Will definitely be back :)

              Great experience”

              Booked last minute and was pleasantly surprised to find a name brand like Holiday Inn was reasonably priced (even for Chinese New Year week!). Checking in was no hassle, even offered us complimentary late check out. Complimentary breakfast buffet was good, could have been better with a wider selection, but the food they had available tasted great. Staff was very friendly and helpful, even allowed us to refill fresh milk for our toddlers bottle before starting our sight-seeing in Singapore. The surrounding area is packed with pubs and places to eat. Will recommend everyone to check out Sin Hoi eating house down the road (about 5 minute walk). The food is so good. Overall, will definitely be coming back to Holiday Inn Express Katong the next time we go to Singapore.

              I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Holiday Inn Express Katong! Location was excellent, room was very clean, and facilities were very nice. Availability of universal power point in the room was awesome and very thoughtful as I forgot my adapter! Breakfast buffet was delicious and had a pretty good range of choices. I must mention that the staff who did my checkout was super confused and kept asking me the same questions in 7 different ways regarding which credit card to use for payment. With all that said, I'd certainly stay here again in very near future! Thanks for making my stay a pleasant one!

              Best Value for money stay in Singapore”

              This was our second time to stay at Holiday Inn Express, and we enjoyed it just as much. The room was clean and comfortable, and quite spacious. The staff are friendly and attentive, and most importantly, always willing to help with any request. They were even willing to accommodate our request for an extended check-out. The breakfast buffet was tasty and filling. But, if that is not enough, there are so many great options just outside. They are walking distance from some of the best chinese restaurants in Singapore. Incredible value for money, and I personally will not stay in any other hotel whilst in Singapore.

              Staff were very professional and polite. The buffet breakfast was value for money and the pack and go option was a bonus. The hotel was clean and had everything i needed. one downfall though is the location...as a tourist it's hard to find a tour that offers hotel pickup from this location therefore you have to take a taxi, which is quite convenient too and the hotel staff are always willing to help you book one. Thank you Holiday Inn Express Katong, i enjoyed my stay.

              Thank you, Phyllis (Front Office) for surprising my daughter with a delicious piece of birthday cake. The only let down was the food served at Baba Chews. We were looking to delight ourselves with authentic Peranakan cuisines. The soup has a fishy aftertaste. The pongteh lacks the spice, cinnamon. The only dish we were pleased with is kapitan curry. Overall, we were both pleased with the location, convenience, accessibility and cleanlinesd of this hotel. Keep up the good work, Holiday Inn Express Katong.

              The location is excellent, close to two main roads (East Coast Road and Marine Parade Road). Really accessible and highly walkable. Being in Katong, there's no shortage of good authentic Singaporean food. The room is modern and clean. The bed, pillows and blankets are very comfortable. Front desk customer service is outstanding too. Highly recommended! This will be our go-to accommodation when we visit Singapore.

              Very New Holiday Inn Good for Budget Travellers”

              We needed to stay near family in Katong rather than in the city so this Holiday Inn Expres was goid value for Singapore. Lots of nice restaurants and bars popping up all over the Katong area. Shopping is good over at Parkway Parade Mall and the Beach only 10-15 mins walk. Still quire a few local hawker markets around for the budget conscious traveller. However the large one next to Parkway Parade gets quite crowded at times. Overall a good stay in this hotel.

              This hotel that makes you feel so good!”

              At first we were skeptical because of the location is not near to MRT station, but we were not worry anymore after we figured out there is a bus station just 200-300 meters away from the hotel and everywhere is accessible if you know how to use Google Maps ;) The hotel is value for money if you compared with those in central area and best is it comes with decent breakfast! Ok, so we stayed in another hotel in CBD area before HolidayInn Ex Katong, this hotel staff here have a very positive and good attitude that makes me feel so comfortable, while I was waiting for the coffee machine to have my coffee ready so I look around and a lady thought I need some help and she ask "Yes sir, anything I can help?", and while the day we're ready to check out, a cleaning staff knocks the door and provide us 2 more bottle of drinking water even we are about to leave at that time. To be honest, these attitude is priceless and I definitely will come back to this hotel again when I'm back to SG. Awesome!

              Very nice experience :)”

              No regret in choosing this hotel. Katong is such a nice place with lots of local restaurants. Katong 112, a shopping mall with a supermarket is located just next to the hotel, very convenient for tourists. Some might be worried about transport as this hotel is not located near a MRT station. But actually there are many buses (e.g. No.10 and 16) at Roxy Sq. which can take you to Dakota station in just 10-15 mins. Definitely recommended given the price and quality of room & service. Only one negative comment for the breakfast: not much choices and the taste is..... not for me I would say. But you can try whatever breakfast you like in Katong area! Plenty of choice! :)

              Efficient Hotel”

              Holiday Inn Express Singapore Katong is quite a busy hotel that is quite good value for money. The breakfast has got a nice varieties of food. Room is small but clean, well what can we expect from an express hotel right? Overall i find this hotel very efficient. I might consider staying here again.

              Perfect stay ! Clean room clean sheets clean shower and bathroom , food buffet is good quick check in and out , near katong laksa (famous laksa place) friendly staff . Ac is working perfectly — Singapore is one hot and humid place I’m very thankful for the ac and the WiFi. WiFi is the extremely quick (compared to Philippines internet) . They have a complimentary phone to order taxi but didn’t use it coz I bought the travel SIM card

              Breakfast was Okay but”

              I went on price this visit to Singapore as I am doing lots of traveling this month. The good things where the bed, good quality and selection of pillows. The adjustable message shower and very clean room. The breakfast was ok but I was disappointed there where no grilled tomatoes or mushrooms etc to go with scrambled eggs, no egg station, so no fryed eggs and no bacon ! I know your say it is an Express holiday inn, however for me a little bit more at breakfast would have me return ! The gym was in the wrong place and small, I am sure the architect did not draw this in. When your on a budget this will do, you get what you pay for ! Food places on ground floor nice tea place and food bars/restaurants over the road. ps the reception is on the 7th floor !

              Value wise, its hard to beat Holiday Inn Express in Katong. There are abundant of food around and the breakfast is outstanding for the price of the room.

              Good hotel”

              Not my first time doing a staycation with Holiday Inn express Katong so generally i think it’s a good hotel coz it’s cheap, near to many food places and directly beside 112 Katong mall 👍🏻 But they need to improve on certain aspects: 1) change their pillows - what’s the point of labelling ‘firm’ and ‘soft’ and giving clients a choice when both pillows actually felt the same 🤷🏼‍♀️ 2) their dustbin in the room / toilet are old and rusty so it’s an unpleasant sight to see it whenever u throw an item inside. So maybe u can place a plastic bag over? 3) complimentary parking rules - I went to the counter (twice) to get a complimentary parking coupon and both times I was given without questions asked or any rules to be complied upon; but just as I asked for another one before my check out, the staff told me I can’t have it cos i’m not their member. When I shared with them I was given the coupons ytd, they said it was their mistake to overlook the rules 🙄🤷🏼‍♀️ Seriously?

              The place is near to the airport, and there are a lot of convenient places at the surroundings, e.g. local food (katong laksa), bars, malls and also near the east coast park, a very nice place for outdoor activities by the seaside.

              5 nights well spent!”

              Room is spacious enough and well designed. Love the floor to ceiling windows. Clean and modern. Beds and linens are so comfy. We got the Queen standard which includes a Handy Mobile unit with free unli data and international calls to certain countries. Great value as we didn't need to purchase sim for mobile data as we toured around. Electric plugs in the room are universal and there's also USB slots by the desk. There's a bluetooth speaker/alarm/radio too and a Smart TV with cable and Youtube (video categories are preselected tho so you can't search). Hassle free check-in and check-out. Good breakfast. Great staff. Affordable rates. Situated in Katong, neighborhood is peaceful and quiet. Internet is fast enough for streaming. Has 24-hr gym and self service laundry. Beside a mall, 7-11 also nearby. No nearby train station but bus stop at Roxy sq. is only 250m away from hotel so mostly commuted via bus. Looking forward to stay with them again!
