Park Avenue Rochester
- Room Type : Deluxe Room
- Stay Nights : 2 nights
- Stay Num : 1 person
We chose "Park Avenue Rochester" because it was close to MRT Buonavista Station. That station is easy to access as two lines of the circle line and the green line are crossing. My work place is in the west area of Singapore at this trip but there is not so many choice of hotel surroundings. Among the few hotels, this hotel is quite clean and looks new. 【Official website】 Park Avenue Rochester Also posted here!

Check it out entrance and reception
The entrance is on the back side of the building, if you get there from MRT station. There is a sign on the building wall, so it is easy to find it even if you go from the station side.
The way from the nearest station to the hotel
Hotel entrance. From the station side, you can pass through the restaurant at the ground floor and head to the front desk.
The entrance from the front desk side. Lighting at the lobby is a bit dark. It is like Japanese business hotel rather than for family.
A lot of tour brochure were placed next to the front desk.

The deluxe room
Enter the room using the card key.
Entering the room, there are a bathroom and a mirror on the left.
The room is modern and stylish, and also clean and tidy to spend the time even the space is small.
The bed mattress is thick and comfortable. The pillow was not too hard and too soft, it was just nice for me.
There is a TV on the opposite side of wall, and storage space under that. The TV position is just nice to watch the screen whether I sat on the bed or lie down.
There are a desk and a chair next to the window.
The room phone and smart phone are on the desk. This handy is with unlimited 3G data and 10 times local and international calls.
Many hotels in Singapore have no bath tub, but this room has it! It is spacious enough for women to stretch the leg in the bathtub. As it is well cleaned even inside the bathtub, I filled it with hot water and took a bath like at home! The water temperature is also just nice.
I think the water pressure of the shower is rather weak. There is no water pressure adjustment.
The shower curtain was so short that using the shower, the water splashed out to the bathroom floor. Even if it gets flooded, it will flow properly into drains.
Inside the bathroom from the door.
The toilet doesn't have washlet.
A scales placed on the edge of the counter top.
A water purifier is next to the tap.
Towel hanger is attached inside the bathroom door.
Amenities are included shampoo, conditioner, body soap, body oil, toothbrush, cotton set and shower cap. There is no razor. The safety seal was adhered each tube properly so that the cap would not open. Every time it replaced to new tube, I think that it is not add content. The hair of the toothbrush is so soft that you should bring those who prefer harder. There is no bottle of drinking water but purified water comes out next to the tap. Singapore is so hot in all season. I thought that you want bottled water so that you can take them when going out.
Hair dryer was in the closet.
Closet and Safety Deposit Box
The closet was next to the bed.
There is iron and ironing board in closet, it is very useful for business travelers.
Hanger, hair dryer and safety box were also in the closet. I called to ask bathrobe and got it since there was no bathrobe in the room.
The closet is large, so you can store a lot. It is recommended for long-term business travelers.
Safety box inside
Mini bar / cafe
There was a cafe corner and a refrigerator on the right of the door.
A kettle, 2 cups and tea bag of famous tea brand, Dilmah. There were Earl Gray, Green Tea and Chrysanthemum Tea. There were also coffee powder, sugar and creamer. It seems to be washed well as there is no stain at all when I checked inside the pot before using. The mugs were also covered by paper lid against the dust.
There is storage space under the cafe corner.

Facilities in the hotel
There is a swimming pool on the third floor.
There are many palm trees at the poolside, which make me feel like I am in tropical country. There is towel counter so you do not need to bring bath towel from the room. The pool is not so big, about 30 meters. There is jacuzzi, chairs and tables around.
It was too dark to walk poolside after sunset.
There is also a shower room and a toilet for pool guests. It is very clean.

Hotel surroundings environment
The area called “Rochester Park” is just around the hotel, and there are several fashionable restaurants. There is a big lawn near the hotel, it is good to take a walk.
Staff & Customers
The hotel staffs are gentle and friendly. I saw the staff are smiling with the guest with a child. I could not communicate in Japanese and find the Japanese guidance. There is a Japanese tourist map in the lobby.
This hotel would be suitable the guest for business trip than tourist. Mainly they are 30s and 40s, I did not see much children. Nationality is various.
From Changi Airport you can go to the nearest station by taking Green Line. It is approximately 45 minutes to Buonavista station. You can see the hotel from the station and it is about 5 minutes walk. There is a roofed aisle, so you will not get wet if it is rain.
Singapore is a safe country and this area around the hotel is particularly good among them. There are few houses and there are many offices ahead of the hotel.
Many food place are in the shopping mall. You can enjoy various cuisines like Japanese, Italian and fast food. It is approximately 30 minutes by MRT to downtown area such as Merlion park.
I could stay there without feeling stress because everywhere is well cleaned. Although it was fully booked, I never felt noisy at the room. However, as there were many guests, the elevator was crowded. Especially breakfast is my favorite. This accommodation is like a business hotel in Japan but the variety of dishes at breakfast is extensive. The venue is also fashionable as it is used as a restaurant in the evening. You can choose between indoor and outdoor tables. Egg corner is also nice.
