Read the reviews on Tripadvisor, there's one recent one (April/May?) that talks about rooms in some kind of annexe being better than the main building.CaptainBullus wrote: Not too impressed with the hotel we're being put up in (Royal Hotel, Newton Rd!) but as it's free for 2 weeks can't really complain!
When I was a merchant navy cadet and visited Singapore in the '90s, Newton Circus and People's Park were my first taste of Asia. I can't wait to get back and see them again and introduce my better half to their "local culinary delights"! Any outstanding stalls you can remember/recommend?JR8 wrote:On the plus side, that's a great location to get to familiarise yourself to SG. Bang in the middle between Newton and Novena MRTs. And it's a stroll (800m?) to Newton Hawker Centre*, where familiarising yourselves with the local culinary delights awaits you!
* Google maps indicates NHC as 'Closed' but as I recall that refers to a brief period of closure several years ago now. It is definitely fully open and functioning; a bunch of us went there just last month and had a slap-up meal!

I can attest for Pasir Panjang Seafood Centre. It is definitely cheaper and less tout-y than Newton. You can enjoy your dinner in peace without 10 touts harassing you at your table to order from their stalls.JR8 wrote:I don't know the PP food centre, not a place I've been and my wife couldn't (cultural, aka pork/lard issues).
