Wow! What a great hotel! We and another couple are unanimous in our opinion that the Vagabond is the finest hotel we have stayed in all over the world. A unique décor and absolutely outstanding service are its trademark. The lobby and bar are friendly and comfortable, with food and drink for all tastes. There really are no words to describe the incredible service except to mention the sign next to the room phone, “Dial 0 for everything.” We asked a staff member to make a lunch reservation at Spago, the Wolfgang Puck restaurant atop the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. He advised that the line was busy because it was the weekend, but said he would follow up and then call us when he had confirmed the reservation. He did a couple of hours later and we enjoyed our lunch. The rooms are well furnished, have comfortable linens and towels, offer a coffee maker, provide reliable and strong wi-fi, and even have an internet phone where we could make free calls to the US. The hotel is close to two MRT stations and a hop-on/hop-off bus. There are numerous restaurants within walking distance. The room rate is significantly less than many of the large chain hotels, so all in all this is the place to stay in Singapore.
