Travel Report: Hotel Innotel, Singapore

Yes!  I'm in the beautiful City of Lion --- Singapore!

I arrived around 2pm and went straight to a grocery to purchase water, a unique Coca Cola bottle/can, some chips JUST in case the Anaconda inside my tummy gets hungry! :P  

I swear, a huge luggage won't stop me from checking out a grocery at the Terminal 2 before we headed to the city proper!  
I tell you, it was a super EVENTFUL bus ride!  I like the adventure but I got a lot of bonuses out of it!  Ahhh the driver was a classic!  I won't forget him for the rest of my life!  Not because of his driving!  Let's just say, I don't seem to understand him and he does not understand me either and we're both speaking in English!  *lol*   Okay, just leave it like that for now as I'm still super "embarrassed" :P

I booked our hotel at Hotel Innotel via Agoda.  I'm so happy that the hotel wasn't hard to find!  Based on reviews, the hotel prides its location as its just 2-3 minutes walk to the Doby Ghaut Station which connects to other MRT lines.

I want to compliment their service!  Once I got to the front desk, they have clear folders on all the online bookings and my file was found right away.  I was asked to show my passport and credit card to confirm the booking.  In just a couple of minutes after, I was ushered to the room!  Quick and efficient!  I  like it! 

Onto the hotel, the room is just a regular sized hotel room BUT its interior is modern!  I smiled once I saw this sight.... white paintings with a colorful stripes  accent at the back of the bed....my kind of room! :)


Here's the other side of the room, take a look on how "hip" the color of the door is!  Each room number has different color combination! 

The bathroom is small yet its surprisingly spacious!
Okay, I got myself confused here with my statement
but you'll know what I mean once you scroll down
 The sink is located OUTSIDE, just right after you stepped inside the room.  It takes a bit of time to get used to this room configuration!  I'm starting to like it though as this totally feels like "home".

 

The hotel room has a couple of hangers, 2 bath robes, a safe...

Basic toiletries.  Ahhh, I see coffee, creamer and sugar!  
*made a cup for myself and Mr. AMW*
 

The most important part?  The bed is not too soft nor hard!  Ahhh, because of the wonderful bed, I slept in and woke up a bit too later :P

Free WIFI/Lan internet.  Once they give you the room keys, they already have the internet password printed out for you to use!  Ooohhh, blow dryer is available in EACH room plus this super cute mirror!  

I can use the computer to look at myself in the mirror (normal and macro mode) anytime!  (as if! LOL)

Oh my!  Before I end this post, can I share something?  Remember those very thin, card-board like slippers that hotels give out to use for free?  Oh my goodness, cardboard bedroom slippers NO MORE!  The hotel has 2 pairs of really good quality hotel slippers! Call me childish but simple things like these matters to me!!!

Just in case you're interested, mission accomplished on day 1!  Adding up to Mr. AMW's Coke collection...


Right in front of our hotel, there's a cute lion smiling at us!  Can't help it but we need to take a shot of him sitting so cute! Check out his bangs! :P

And the saying that I totally agree ----
Spent a wonderful dinner at Watami Restaurant, The Center with gorgeous Blogger friends!  Most of them have to fly all the way from Malaysia for this!  Thank you so much girls!  I had a fabulous time and my tummy is super duper happy! :)

Singapore is a bit humid even at night but the wonderful friends I met and a whole lot of funny moments made me realize how lucky I am! :)

I'll report back when I get the chance!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  12. @Kate personal opinion, I haven't tried the Cosmoprof Academy but I believe they are really good base on what I heared. The most important thing in choosing a makeup school is to know the curriculum and the studying does not end once you graduated, its a never ending learning process! I'm sure you'll do well! sorry wasn't able to help much on the school thing but I'm sure its good!
