The Family Suite at Citadines Connect City Centre Singapore has a Bunk Bed with Slide & Climb Wall!

There's a new family-friendly hotel in Singapore for staycations and trust me when I say that kids will never want to step out of their room. All because of this.

Primely located across from Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station, Citadines Connect City Centre Singapore is the first hotel property in Singapore to debut under Citadines Connect by The Ascott Limited.

Already an inconic building in its own right, the building in which the hotel is housed in once belonged to Rediffusion. And even before that, the hotel site was once home to one of Singapore’s earliest railway stations which operated from 1902 to 1932 - Tank Road Railway Station.

To pay homage to the site's history, the hotel has retrofitted its interior with architecture that exudes the charm of a by-gone era of train travel.

Just stepping into the lobby of the hotel seems to transport one to a railway station, with its railway track-like ceilings to the train station arches found outside of the hotel.

The train theme continues right to the lift lobbies - not only on Level 1, but also on susequent levels of the hotel. I love how the hotel has embraced the aesthetics of a train station through and through.

Of course, the delight for kids lie inside the rooms and if you are planning a stayction for the rooms, my advice is to book the 'Family Room' or 'Family Suite' and watch your kids' faces light up when they step into the room for the first time.

Because which kid wouldn't love a bunk bed that comes with a climb wall AND a slide???

The rooms also come equipped with a safari tepee tent, hopscotch game mat, playroom couch, storybooks, games and welcome gifts... all these in a fun cheery room.

But parents, don't worry about having to squeeze on the bunk bed and having to whizz down the slide because you get your OWN privacy courtesy of a separate room.

Yes, the Family Room and Family Suite each comes with two rooms: one room for the kids and the other a Loft room for parents to enjoy a blissful slumber.

The Loft Room comes with a queen bed and a sofa bed while the kids room’s bunk bed also has another pull-out mattress. This means that the Family Suite can sleep up to 6 pax. Great for large familes!

So while my kids were a tad old to enjoy the kiddy room, my 2 boys did love the Loft room, which was safari-themed by the way. I think it had to do with the daily-replenishable  FREE minibar snacks and drinks... and free WiFi! 😆

And I have to give a special mention to the bathroom door in the kids' room - I love how much it resembled an actual raliway station door!

Recreational amentities are all located on the stunning space on the rooftop level, which features an outdoor pool and wading pool for younger kids.

For those looking to keep fit, there are also the 24-hour fitness room and aqua gym.

Breakfast was served at Edition Rooftop Bar & Restaurant and while it wasn't buffet-style, the food was pretty delicious and filling.

Being located in the Dhoby Ghaut area also means that the hotel is within walking distance to shopping options like Plaza Singapura as well as nature discovery at Fort Canning Park. 

In particular, this outdoor playground at Jubilee Park @ Fort Canning Park is just a short walk away from Citadines Connect City Centre Singapore!

If you are looking at other room options, you wouldn't be disappointed as they are fashioned with design inspiration from the 60s and 70s, awash in retro yellow and Florence green hues.
