Grand Plaza ParkRoyal

Why do I like this hotel?

First of all, the location. It’s pretty much right next to Funan, (I have never seen so many tech shops) and there’s a Sex Shop accross the street! (Note to self, go visit said Sex Shop for a review. Any MetroBloggers wanna tag team?)

The breakfast spread the morning I was leaving, was just plain amazing. I had the worst hangover (Thanks Nat and Jer!) ever, and the food which was nice and fresh, got me a little bit through the hangover. And they had Guava with Asam! Hell yeah!

Rooms comes with wired broadband connection, which is about $30 tops a day. I would recommend bringing something like an Airport Express (make sure you have a three pin adapter!) because if you end up sharing the one connection with multiple computers (plug into one NIC, and then into a different NIC) it’ll start the charge as new. Pricey!

WiFi in the lounge area, but you have to get an access card of some kind. That’s just kinda lame, if you ask me.

Next trip, I’m staying here again!

    Singapore sucks in terms of wireless provisions, but hey, if you’re impressed with Funan Centre, then clearly you haven’t seen the rabbit warren/techie’s paradise that is Sim Lim Square yet ;) Even BoingBoing’s Cory Doctorow was blown away by it when he was here earlier this year!

    Inccidentally, you can get free wifi at macdonalds. Only problem being that them airport extreme cards don’t work with the APs in McDs.

    SLS’s foodcourt has free WiFi though.
