The Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel is somewhat special in its location in that it is out of the city area that is the usual domain for hotels of its class. Instead, it is situated in Katong, a pleasant residential area in the eastern part of Singapore that is close to the sea. Guests may grow to love the untouristy location and the local side of Singapore.
The Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel is only 15 minutes away from the airport with a complimentary shuttle bus service. Its proximity to East Coast Park also means that guests can engage in jogging, cycling, rollerblading at the park which is just a stone’s throw away.
The two restaurants serve Chinese food and an international buffet, but there is no need to worry about food or shopping, as there is Parkway Parade Shopping Centre right opposite the hotel. Guests can also try the affordable local food at the non-airconditioned food centres in the area around the shopping mall. The food may even be tastier and cheaper than that in the city centre.
The guestroom are spacious while the amenities are standard for its class, that is to say there’s a telephone, cable colour tv, hi-speed internet access (charges may apply) and radio in the room. Although it is not the most convenient for visiting Singapore’s attractions, it is certainly significantly cheaper than the hotels in the city.
Taken altogether, Grand Mercure Roxy Hotel is the perfect stay for someone who is staying a night and wants to try a bit of Singapore food and shopping, or someone who wants a quiet and comfortable 4-star stay whilst seeing a different side of Singapore.
