My Rating: (3 out of 5)

Ascott Raffles Place ~ My first staycation post! The service apartment is great for people travelling to Singapore for business trip or leisure. It is also suitable for locals to have a short getaway from their homes. I always love travelling and when I can't travel, a staycation is also good to recharge myself and keep my mind away from the hectic work. It is an interesting heritage building restored from its 1950 splendour. Surroundings itself with the modern cityscape. I heard that it used to be the post office during Sir Stamford Raffles times. Wow!

Service
I made a booking and mentioned it is our anniversary. They were so sweet to offer a complimentary small bottle of wine and box of chocolates. So nice ~ We had truffle fries craving and ordered their room service.

Room
We booked a Cutler Suite (Room size:48 sq.m, 1 King Bed and City View). They have a separate seating area. Great that they have a TV at the seating area and also another TV at the bed area. So nice haha. Good for TV addicts like us haha. They provide a phone when you can bring out of the service apartment. Cool! Great for tourist so you don't need to get your data sim card in Singapore.

Bathroom
A Nice Big Bath Tub! It is the first thing that caught my eye! So do bring along your bubble bath or bath salts! You can even bring your candlelight haha So romantic! Soak and relax! The toiletries provided are from popular french natural beauty brand - l'occitane! Not some unheard brands! Awesome!

Kitchen
A nice kitchen that is equipped with the necessities - Pots, Cutlery, Knife for basic cooking! We intend to cook and bought some groceries as well as our olive oil, salt. This reminded me of our time in Australia! Cooking in the apartment and you don't need to think of cleaning up the entire kitchen after you cook. It is a great joy! We love cooking but not the cleaning haha. No need to fret over the cleaning up. Lazy us! My top favourite is the Dishwasher! First thing is to put all the things into the dish washer and let it clean all of the equipments and cutleries that we intend to use later. Tonight dinner will be Chicken and Mushroom Fusilli Pasta, Stir-Fried Brussels Sprouts. Bought some lovely Brussels Sprouts from Cold Storage at Great World City. Yum Yum

Amenities
They do not have many facilities. They do have a outdoor infinity swimming pool where you can see the city landscape while you swim. Not a very big one. See the video for the size of the pool! But I think still acceptable. There is also a living room area where you can just read some books, newspaper, watch tv and have some snack, coffee, tea. The tea bags are also from popular Singapore brand - TWG. A sundeck area when you can sit and suntan. The gym is of a good size with some treadmills with TV and weight lifting machines.

~Conclusion~
Ascott Raffles Place ~ A very accessible location via Raffles Place MRT. Right in our Singapore CBD - a prime location. This grants you with immediate access to the multitude of business and financial institutions in the CBD area. Since it is beside the Raffles Place MRT which is a interchange station, the north-south and east-west mrt line just intersect here. It makes it so close with all our other popular shopping districts E.g. Orchard or City Hall in Singapore. It is also near to our popular Lau Pa Sat - previously known as Telok Ayer Market which is a historic building and currently a food centre. A popular tourist attraction where you can find a lot of local great food delights (E.g. Satay). You can also take a nice walk to the Marina Bay area and enjoy the cityscape. Great for expats and Singapore tourists. For the locals in Singapore, how often you get to stay in a CBD area. You might think why will I want to stay where I always work. But it might be an interesting experience where you get to view the area differently. It is nice and quiet during the weekends. So different from the weekdays! As Ascott Raffles Place is an service apartment with a kitchen, you can even get to cook and not dirtying your house.
