Convenient & Comfortable ”
My stay at the Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel was superbly awesomeness! The hotel is just about 5 mins walk to Clarke Quay MRT station and it is just opposite The Central Shopping Mall. Everywhere is a walking distance. The room that I have stayed is so big and comfortable and the WIFI service is top class. The value that I have paid for the stay is worthy. Highly recommended to stay. Will definitely come back to stay when next visiting Singapore :D. Travelling to/from Changi to the hotel is awesomely convenient just by using the MRT and it cost less than SGD2.00. *thumbs up* for Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel.

Lovely Hotel located at the heart of Clarke Quay”
It was our wedding anniversary so we opt for a weekend stay at Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel. The hotel staffs were friendly, helpful and tried their best to accede to our every requests. Eg, You can ask for complimentary parking coupon if you are driving there. And when not possible, they would kindly turn us down. Eg, We asked for a late check out time and they said that it was subjected to availablility. (Thank goodness it was and we got to check out at 2pm instead of 12pm) The room was nice and spacious with a king size bed and a coffee/tea/bar counter. Toliet had a rain shower and bath tub. We didn't try the gym room but the swimming pool was cozy. Location of the hotel was at the heart of one of Singapore's more reknown nightlife, Clark Quay and River Valley. Nearest shopping mall is Central Mall and d other one, Liang Court, is not too far a walk away~ 10 mins slow walk. Mrt station (Clarke Quay) and bus stop is less than 5 mins away.
Great Hotel and Best Location”
we stayed for 3 nights at swissotel merchant court during our family vacation. quite surprised when we saw the hotel as we received a very good rate from agoda and at the first time didn't expect much. it has perfect location just in front of clarke quay and it was very easy to go everywhere as the mrt station is only 5 mins by walk and the taxi stand is just right in front of the hotel. swissotel is not a new hotel but all the facilities are very well maintained. the services are lovely too. we definitely gonna come back to this hotel in our next visit to singapore.
I stayed at the Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel between 28 Dec 2010 and 1 Jan 2011. First day, I was there it seemed like a simple hotel. I felt that my room was too small for two persons, and I unluckily got a room with no view. Even I made a requirement via Agoda reservation that I’d like a room with a good view of the Singapore River. So I would recommend you to inform the hotel’s staff what request you made via Agoda. I guessed that the hotel’s staff never read it, you should tell them again when you arrive there. During my stay, I did not get any newspaper while the next door customer got it every morning. Anyway, overall was very good. The hotel is located on a good location to take any public transportation. It is not far from Chinatown, Bugis Junction, Marina bay and Orchard road. The room is clean. All staff are nice and polite.
Good hotel, Great service, Great Staff”
Swissotel Merchant Court is in a a great & convenient location, right on Clarke Quay, only a few minutes walking distance to bars, night clubs, restaurants, the supermarket under Novotel and China town. It's a few minutes from the CBD, Orchard road, little India and other places of interest by cab. Even the least costly standard of accommodation there is of decent standard, clean and pleasant. The staff are very friendly and very courteous. I'm a business traveller and have been staying there 4 to 5 times a year since 2005. I've tried other hotels, but this one seems to be a great all rounder. Sam-Sydney-Australia.
The hotel is located right around the corner from Clark Quay, one of the more touristy spots in Singapore. There are a lot of westernized restaurants nearby, which is convenient especially if you don't feel like being adventurous. The rooms and services are exceptional. Breakfast is great and is the same as the one offered at the Swissotel Stamford. While not as new or lustrous as the Stamford or other high end and high cost hotels, the Swissotel at Merchant Court offers exceptional value for the money.
Great location ”
first timer at swissotel merchant court hotel. i was upgraded to the deluxe room. although the room is small, its cosy enough. probably only enough space to put 1 big suitcase by the foot of the bed/below. the room is very clean and the best part will have to be the nespresso machine and twg teabags! i must also really comment about the duckdown pillows they used as its really comfy if you enjoy nightlife, then clarke quay and boat quay are just walking distance. if you prefer to go suntec and other shopping areas like orchard, the mrt station is just around the corner. there is a shopping centre next door but its a rather small one. overall, its a great hotel just a little pricey
A very pleasant stay at a lovely hotel”
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Swissotel Merchant Court. The hotel is next to a shopping mall. We were only a few steps away from the Clarke Quay MRT station and Clarke Quay itself. Every morning we would walk to the MRT. Every evening we would walk along the river behind the hotel, have a few drinks (countless bars and restaurant by the way) and come back. The room was always exceptionally cleaned, which was a bonus. I would recommend it to anyone.
Fantastic place to stay in Singapore”
Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel is very good value for the money. It has great atmosphere and is conveniently located close to the entertainment quarters of Singapore. The room was clean and had a nice view of the large hotel swimming pool. Swimming pool was relaxing overviewing Clarke Quay. Staff was very helpful. I wanted to change my room and it was organised and my luggage transferred whilst I was sightseeing. I will definitely stay again and will recommend it to my friends.
Recommended Hotel in Singapore”
This is the second year in a row we stayed 8 days on Swissotel Merchant Court and we love it. The location on Clark Quay is excellent for both shoppping , dining and night life. The staff is very friendly and service minded. The breakfast has a lot of choices for both Asians and Western tastes. The cleanliness is good, the hotel Spa is expencive but good, Pool area somewhat limited but ok. My only complain must be the traffic noice in rooms facing the road outside. I woke up several times due to noice from Buses and cars speeding up on the outside. Final conclusion: We will come back next year !!
Great NYE base”
We have used the Swissotel Merchant court as a base for NYE celebrations for 3-4 times now. Whether you are a local (we live in Singapore) or a visitor, it is from what I can tell the best value for money at an easy walking distance to perfect vantage points to watch the fireworks. As a bonus, the walk along the river is very pleasant. Getting back out with the masses always takes a lot of time, but at least it is only a short walk back to your bed (or the hustle and bustle of Clark Quay entertainment) Highly recommended!
Dear Alfred, Thank you for your lovely review and a warm welcome back to Swissôtel Merchant Court, Singapore. It is heartening to learn that you had a fantastic stay and especially enjoyed the central location of our hotel in Clarke Quay. Thank you for choosing us as your preferred hotel to celebrate New Year's Eve, and we look forward to delight you again on your future visits. Warm Regards, Rainer Tenius - General Manager
nice to stay at Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore”
I stay at Swissotel Merchant Court Singapore during Christmas. Although there were a lot of customer, all staffs work so fast to satisfy their customers best. When my partner and I get off taxi, a nice porter responses and comes to me immediately. We have lot of bags but he lifts our stuffs without hesitation. At that time, I ask him to carry some handbag myself but he pretty deny. The swissotel location is quite perfect for someone who does not want to stay in the heart of city such Orchard road. The train station(Clark Quay) situates next to this hotel. The front view is river side,there is nice place for going there in Nighttime.
Awesome location - everything you need!”
The Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel is right along the river in Clarke Quay and has everything you need: impressive hotel gym, big pool with outdoor lounge area, restaurants and cafes (even though I did not eat in the hotel), and an awesome location! Although it's not a 5-star LUXURY hotel (approaching time when it'll be a little dated), but would definitely stay here again!
Great colourful and lively location”
An overnight stay is sometimes more a hassle in an international city, though the Seissotel in Singapore makes it more enjoyable part of a trip. Hotel to airport shuttle bus was an excellent and reasonably priced service providing door to door service. Upon arrival being informed I had been upgraded (although my new room had two single beds rather than a large double or queen). Then to have a swim and see the colourful nightlife of Clarke Quay below and then walk directly into the lovely atmosphere of Singaporeans and tourists enjoying the nightlife is a great thing of the Swissotel Merchant Court's location.
We had a very enjoyable stay at the Swissotel Merchant Court Hotel. The rooms and bed were a reasonable size and clean. We had a pleasant enough view out of our room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were able to get early access to our room (very handy if you've just flown in from overseas), as well as extending our check out. Though this was not as late as our flight, the hotel had showers and changing rooms available that we could use after check out. Its very handily located next to Clarke Quay & its MRT station. So easy to get about Singapore, but also plenty of taxis & buses right nearby if you want to travel above ground. There is not only the resturants of Clarke Quay nearby but also cheaper food courts in the adjacent buildings. Perhaps my only complaint was the cost of the brekfast, some SGD30 p.p. and the internet. These just seem geared to rake in some extra profit when really given the cost per room, could have been offered more cheaply. Internet cafes in Singapore not easy to find but there were plently of places to eat some local breakfast if you are happy to skip the bacon & eggs etc.
Lovely hotel and service with a smile”
i say the best feature of swissotel was location, but that's not quite right. everything about the hotel was great. the breakfast was really good and even though the room was a little small it had everything that we needed. there is no doubt that we will be staying at swissotel merchant court next time we are in singapore. the location is a great feature. just a few minutes walk in any direction to a myriad of restuarants and food outlets. mrt station just across the road which enables the traveller to get anywhere in singapore. plus the pool are also relaxing and well set out.
Excellent service with a smile”
we recently spent 7 days at the swissotel merchant court and experienced the wonderful hospitality shown by the staff from most departments that we came in contact with. when i had an issue with the firmness of the bed in the room, the front desk manager, gerald chan came and very politely solved the problem by explaining and offering us another room with a mattress overlay for the bed. he was with us all the way, including moving our things to the new room. we were most touched and impressed with his service. a birthday cake was also offered to us in our room for my birthday. what a lovely gesture! we also found the telephone operator, jessie extremely courteous and polite. aubrey from the market cafe deserved a mention as well. she was friendly, courteous and has a good memory for names. it did add a personal touch when you are addressed by your name. overall, we had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to go back again or recommend friends to the hotel.
Great location with friendly staff”
We were recommended the Swissotel Merchant Court by friends who are regular guests. Their recommendation was spot on, the location at Clarke Quay (immediately next door to the MRT station) provided us with access to everything Singapore has to offer. Friendly staff, access to the pool as an oasis from the crowds and a well equiped gym made our experience all the more enjoyable.
Convenient Location for drinking/nightlife”
the hotel staff were very generous with their welcome for me and my friends. although i had only stayed a night, i felt very well treated with respect as the staff was very courteous with us. the room was booked on behalf of my friend who was having her celebration at a club in clarke quay hence this hotel was the one that we had chose to stay in because of its very convenient location. the room was intended for my friend and her partner, however i had requested for a gathering of about 5 friends from 6pm till 9pm then we would leave the room to our next location. simply put, the room was used as a meeting location. swissotel was very kind to us as i have met hotel managements who refused despite our claims that nobody except the maximum number of people would stay. they had also provided a cake for my friend who was having her birthday on that day. there was complimentary service by a very nice room service staff who came by when she was cleaning the neighboring rooms. she asked if she could help us with anything or if we needed any cleaning up and when we rejected her offer, she nicely thanked us with a few chocolate bars. this is a very surprising visit from a staff whose services we have no use for, however pleasantly pleased us. as we were upgraded to an executive room, there was additional services such as a free-flow canapés and cocktails from 6pm-8pm also a complimentary breakfast the very next day. i have seen hotels upgrading rooms, but i have never seen hotels providing canapés and cocktails. thank you swissotel.
