Park Royal Hotel is one of the most luxurious hotels of Singapore which is located just beside the China Town multirail transit system. Unlike other hotels that have amenities spread across the entire premises of the hotel Park Royal is completely different and has a unique offering. The hotel has a dedicated wellness floor that features a gymn that is open for 24 hours and has private trainers for each of its guests, an infinity outdoor pool and a manmande garden walking area that is stretched across 300 metres.
Free wifi is available not only in the guest rooms but in the entire premises of the hotel. The hotel features pictursque views of the beautiful skyline of Singapore as well as the seas and oceans that are spread across several miles. The guest rooms are completely air conditioned and are furnished with wood. The rooms also have a personal safe, a flat screen TV as well as a mini bar.
Initially I had no plans of staying at this hotel but while booking my tickets for Malaysia from Redbus.sg the Bus pick up point mentioned was this hotel. This is what made my mind to book a room here and I was quite happy with the experience. My stay here proved to be the best time on my Singapore tour as I got to see a lot of places and important land marks within a short span of time. Hong Lim Park, China Town, Raffles Place, Clarke Quay are all within walking distance from this hotel. The proximity of this hotel to the famous shopping belt of Orchard Road is what makes it stand out from all the other hotels.
There were about 4 operators plying from Park Royal Hotel to the Swiss Garden Hotel. The One Travel and Tours and KKKL Travels were the Operators that were plying Executive Coaches on this route. Starmart Express and Konsortium were the Operators plying Luxury Buses. The One Travel and Tours only had 2 buses plying through out the entire day both departing quite early in the morning. The first one departs at 5:30 am and the other at 6:30 am. The tickets are reasonably priced at SGD36 and is one of the cheapest modes of transport between the two hotels. KKKL Travels had about 2 buses plying on this route priced at SGD37. The first bus departs at 4:00 am in the morning and the second one at 4:30 am. I booked my Bus tickets with KKKL Travel and Tours as it was the only Operator plying at this time of the morning. I personally prefer travelling early in the morning as that it when the roads are quite empty with no traffic and you reach your destination faster. The duration of the journey is about 4 hours. However, if you leave at this time of the morning you might reach an hour early. Konsortium and Starmart had buses plying in the evening from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm. I was quite lucky that both my departure and drop off points were hotels.
