Video Tour of Superior Room at Novotel Singapore on Stevens

The interior of the Superior Room at Novotel Singapore on Stevens is stylish and trendy. The modern headboard of the bed, turquoise blue sofa as well as the artistic splashes across the carpet brings about a contemporary vibe as you enter the room. The room adopts an open concept for the shower. For privacy, blinds can be lowered as well. The rainshower head was a plus for us. As with most business hotels, you’ll find usb charging points in the room with control of lightings in the room right next to the bed. Of course, our favourite part of this room is the pool view – when the sun is out, we head to the pool! 😉

The gym is also probably one of the most well-equipped gyms we’ve seen in hotels in Singapore. This shows a paradigm shift where travellers also places emphasis on staying fit on-the-go. The huge gym, lap pools and tennis courts show that the Accor Hotel group is heading in the right direction. After your work out, you can shower in the gym and replenish with MIND oxy-ion water 🙂
