Avantgarde Hotel - Taman Sutera Utama

Avantgarde Hotel is one of the hotel nearest to Sutera Mall which is about 5 minutes walk away. Apart from being surrounded by many F&B outlets, there is also a recreational park and playground in front of the hotel.

It seems to be a popular option among locals and Singaporeans as we made multiple attempts walking-in to book a family room at Avantgarde but failed due to its high occupancy rate during weekends. Hence, if you are interested, it would be best to make a booking first to avoid disappointment.

Avantgarde Hotel - Lobby Area

Lobby area is big, clean and neat. Upon entering, you can smell a nice, soothing fragrance. 

There is also a water dispenser unit near the Lift lobby for guest to quench their thirst.

We booked a Family room for a night (RM208 nett - off peak rates) and it was located at the ground level (level 1). If given a choice, I would prefer to stay on a higher floor as the hotel's common toilet is located outside our room which seems accessible by many people. Access to room is via key card and although there is a security guard on duty round the clock, I thought it would feel more secure if the main entrance has lock feature.

While the Family room has windows, the view is totally unsightly (blocked by huge bulky units). It was not a major problem for us since it was only for a night and we kept the curtains drawn throughout.

Avantgarde's Family room comes with 2 Queen Beds with basic amenities provided. Air-condition is strong and there is a lasting nice fragrance in our room. Free wifi is available which is an important requirement for our kiddos.

Flooring is tiled and the room is neat and clean. 

Water, coffee/tea sachets, water flask and hair dryer are provided.

Toilet is spacious and clean. Clean towels are packed in plastic bags and Avantgarde provides guests with toothbrush and toothpaste.

Generally it was a comfortable stay and I love its strategic location. In the nights (especially weekends), the nearby cafes and restaurants operate till late nights and we can go out for supper or a drink. Being near to Sutera Mall also means we can leave our car at the hotel and walk to the mall to shop and dine. A nice hotel to consider for your next staycation.

The room looks spacious and clean... but why no fridge??? I like to buy outside drinks and chill them so that I can drink cold drinks while watching late night show in the hotel room. =.=

Yeah! That's what I thought so! I would be nice to have a fridge to keep our drinks cool. :D But apparently I think only the suite has fridge. Awwww....
