This is such a crazy belated post! Hubby and I stayed at Sofitel So Singapore exactly a month ago on 17 November 2014 (aka my birthday) using our free night stay with the Accor Group Le Club membership. We decided to try out Sofitel since it was spanking new (equals to clean, nothing mouldy, no creepy crawlies etc ahahah).
The day before, we had stayed at Novotel Clarke Quay already, so we made our way to Sofitel by train. It was strange to be walking along Robinson Road on a Monday in my summer dress with a bouquet of birthday flowers while the rest are clad in office attire lol.
We reached just in time before the rain started to pour – phew.
It was indeed a spanking new hotel indeed. Everything was MINT. It was a hotel filled with eclectic pieces, some sections chic, others woody. Even so, it gave a ‘designer’ feel.
I used to have a phobia of such rotating doors. I was worried that I would not be fast enough for them. =_=
Hubby at the reception checking in. I decided to snap a few pics while waiting.
I don’t mind having this at my home.
Their small restaurant, pretty quiet as it was after lunch hours.
Purple candles with black candle stand! I so wanna lug this home too.
Check in was quick, and we proceeded to our room on the 2nd level.
We were greeted by this lovely sight once we exited from the lift. All their sofas are damn nice can!
They have different wings and we are at the hip wing. Their gym is at the same level too.
The whole hotel is decked in romantic-style lighting.
Tada – our ‘hip’ lodging for the night.
Spot the difference XD
They have this awesome huge ceiling light that mimics natural lighting from a supposedly glass roof!!!!
And hubby was very impressed with their room telephone – which is an iPhone!
Our room has no view. Right opposite is SGX Centre and you can see many people smoking downstairs. Kinda shiok la actually, they are dreading their workday and here we are enjoying the hotel stay.
Study table with a miniature Eiffel Tower. And see that little box-like thing with the black/ red cover? It houses all the phone cables for you to charge your phone.
I love every single piece in this picture.
A very hip see-through shower facility. Even their shower curtain is so chio.
Again, loving the drawers and the mirror top *drools*
I simply have to show you their iPad… This is where we can control EVERYTHING in the room. From the air-con to the lights to the curtains. Very cool!
Very small pantry but it was totally complimentary!
Chest of drawers filled with hot drinks sachets.
Yup all free – drink up!
This has to be my favourite piece in the room – the gorgeous carpet.
Basically we hid in the room most of the time except during the evening when we walked to M Hotel for dinner. Service was good – nothing to complain about. The hotel staff are smiley and ready to offer their service anytime. I would say that this hotel is the prettiest I’ve ever seen!
