Staycation at Grand Mercure Roxy, Singapore!

Soft mattresses, good food or anything else what makes you feel at home in a hotel? If I personally, it is often that make it come from the simple things that may sometimes escape the attention of people. No, not from the luxury of food, not from the cushion of the mattress or how spacious the bathroom.

Some of the things I mentioned before, in my opinion it should be a standard facility that we must get. Usually also directly proportional to the price. Is not it? The time yes already pay expensive, eat in the restaurant with shades of elite dim, trus taste not good ?? * want to go berserk * ​​😆

This time I will give my short review about Grand Mercure Roxy hotel, Singapore. Incidentally some time ago I had a staycation at the hotel located in this Katong area. The intention of a weekend getaway is so. Feel again less picnic plus more suntuk and saturated work at the same office. There is nothing wrong ‘blur’ a moment from busy to serve the country boss right ?? #tsahhh ..

Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore

I arrived on a Saturday afternoon around 3 pm Singapore time. At the reception desk, the check-in process went smoothly. The receptionist asked for standard documents such as passports and credit cards. Without lingering Mbak the receptionist gave 2 room access card. Not forgetting while handing the access card, I got a brief briefing of information about wifi passwords up to hours and restaurant locations for breakfast. Quick and not complicated.

Surprise !! The receptionist informed me that my room was upgraded to a Suite type! Who is not happy if our room type is upgraded? Although at that time I still feel normal because baseball know room on the 16th floor that would be like. Also informed if it turns out the floors 16 and 17 in this hotel is Executive Floor therefore I have free access to the Executive Lounge on the 17th floor! Woohooo …. !! Eits …, I just yelled in koq heart. Cool attitude still must be taken everywhere yes, pretend not surprised, but … Hahaha ..

Business Suite Room

From the reception desk I went straight to the elevator to my room. The elevator door is open quite quickly, which I think is good. Not slow or lambreta. As a dynamic and active person, most can not see that slowly so!

It turned out that my room was the closest room to the elevator. One other positive point from this Business Suite room. Paste the access card, open the door, go into the room, and … OK, this time I can not be cool anymore! 😆

Room Business Suite type is really gawking. WOW really! Its size is really big! It seems to want to roll on the mattress, prancing around in the room, but not so because inget age. 😆 😆


Business Suite Room – view from the inside

Starting from the front side, ie work desk and minibar. The desk is definitely comfortable because it is very relieved. Ngebayangin really good for typing pretty writing blog post here. ha ha ha..

In the middle, there is 1 piece of mattress size that I think maybe the size is King Size. There is a 42 “TV on the front of the mattress. Then on the left side of the room there is a set of couch complete with his desk. Filled out 10an guests are still very comfortable to chat chatting here.

Moving into the bathroom, the size is also practically spacious. Want a bath with a bathtub or shower, can choose according to taste. The Amenities? Well, do not worry, complete. The choice of scent for shampoo and bath-gel is pretty good yes, not like the typical smell of shampoo ala hotel. 😀

The good news, Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore is very understanding with guests. In the bathroom there is a digital body scales too! Important ya ya .. let alone hotel food is not that good gini. Not to mention in Katong area itself culinary tour choice so many.


Business Suite Room -bathtub or shower ??

What I like from the room in general is the modern minimalist design. From cabinets, divans, table-chairs to sofas, all minimalist models. Simple! The impression became more relieved, not even full of models carvings or ornaments strange that I think even make the impression cramped. 😀

The lighting in the rooms was also very comfortable yes. At night, the lighting of the lights feels very comfortable. Not too dark, not too bright either. Sometimes there is a hotel whose room lights are dimly lit, even though all the lights are turned on.

Another simple thing that I should appreciate is … the quality of the room slippers. Sandals thick and soft material. Aseli comfortable. Used roads in seputaran hotel is also still comfortable because the material is really thick. Surely often nginep in star hotels, eh sandals just flip flops thin sorts of crepes.

The absurd thing I did in the room was .. believe it or not, 3 days 2 nights here I did not change the TV channel though! How come? As usual, the first time we enter the hotel room, the TV usually turns on channel 0 or the hotel’s special channels. The contents are usually promotional about the hotel. Actually the same anyway, the default channel at Grand Mercure Roxy also contains the promotion of the hotel itself.

What distinguishes is, although the video display of information the hotel, audio is filled by one of the radio stations in Singapore. Otherwise class95 FM. Fun, the choice of songs on this radio station really suited my taste. Yes already deh, in the room so not lonely as he listened to the radio anytime. 😀

Swimming pool

One more simple thing I liked was … the pool. At Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore this swimming pool is quite spacious. The shape is you know, rectangular. Simple, enggak strange. I do not need a swimming pool that turn here turn here yes. No problem is not exactly instagramable .. the intention of swimming or playing water anyway? 😛 Precisely a simple swimming pool like this that can be used for real pool. Back and forth to the long dimension of the swimming pool here is enough to feel koq sport. 😀

The water? Clear and clean. Visibility in the water can be from the edge of the pool to the other end. In addition I do not feel there is a scent cleanser in the pool located on the 3rd floor. A plus point in my opinion.

Executive Lounge

Above have I told you that I also got access to the Executive Lounge? Well, there’s no way I missed the opportunity to taste the Executive Lounge. Moreover, we as guests on the 16th and 17th floors may come at any time to the Executive Lounge while still in its operational hours, starting from 06.00 – 22.00.

In the Executive Lounge we can hang around unobtrusively until you might want a small meeting. There are many chairs and tables that can be used for chit-chat, read books or even just staring out the view. In one corner of the Executive Lounge room there is also a wide range of business center space complete with PC supporters. So can really if for small meetings or even blogging * alah Do not worry for drinks, kinds of coffee, tea, juice, etc. are all free here. Just take it out again. For cocktails are also available, but only at 6 pm to 8 pm. 😀

Not just hanging out, if we have access to the Executive Lounge means we can also have breakfast here. Just come here before 10 am, can have breakfast in the executive lounge with a more private atmosphere.

Handy Phone

Other facilities that I think very cool is … the existence of Handy Phone. What is Handy Phone? So, in the room, exactly on the desk, there is a mobile phone which is a facility of Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore. This mobile phone we can use for data access and international call. The data package is unlimited you know. Free to use.

Can we take the hotel out? Obviously ok .. so do not worry stray in Singapore, because we can use the maps anytime wear this Handy Phone. Handy Phone is android-based smartphone. The first time we login to Handy Phone, the application is available only the default application only. Not to forget also with news-feeds about tourist information in Singapore. For other applications, we can download any application that if we want to use in mobile tsb, eg Social Media or the other. 😀

Well, if you want to check-out do not forget to do the data deletion. Later automatically Handy Phone condition will reset like initial condition. So the application we downloaded and the username / password information will be lost as well. Simply secure and convenient is for data privacy issues.

Location and Free Shuttle Bus

Types of home ads on television are always up in price every Monday, one of the selected considerations is location, location and location. Yes, right? 😀 Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore is a very strategic location. The hotel is located just behind the ‘Opp Parkway Parade’ bus stop. So if you want to other areas in Singapore, can really ride the bus. Do you know how convenient the bus is in Singapore? sad clay in Indonesia 🙁

Moreover, if indeed the intention eksplore Katong area, the location of this hotel really strategic! The road to the front of the hotel can be directly to the East Park area, the road to the rear of the hotel directly to the old town a la Katong.

The distance from Changi airport is also still close, only about 30 minutes. Oh yes, do not worry transport from / to Changi airport. The hotel provides shuttle bus facilities that are available every hour from 06.30 am to 1 am. Just make sure we reserve the Shuttle chair to the receptionist or the concierge there. FREE! 🙂

Recommended for Staycation!

With the facilities we manjain really coupled with a very strategic location, Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore is in my opinion recommended to be a choice of overnight in Singapore. For business can, for transit can especially for staycation, really fit! Its location in the Katong area, another area in the neighboring country that has the other side of Singapore, is also very supportive for a short vacation to unwind. What does the other side of Singapore mean? Wait on the next post yes! 😀
