The Hotel is creepy i meant the hallways and the odor is offensive for me. We stayed for 2 nights for 3D/2N for Phil peso 10,000. We even deposited and we were asked for credit card. The stay does not include breakfast. But the hotel is accessible as it is within the famous Orchard road and down the streets a... More

We stayed at this hotel for our educational trip in Singapore. So, we are total of 3 sections (Approx 20 students per section). I have no idea at all that time, since we were in a group tour if how much we have spent our money to pay for the room nights. We were just going with the flow of... More

I visited this hotel in my first visit to Singapore. The hotel is average... so the prices are reasonable more or less. The staff was neutral and services are ok. However, they helped us in arranging a guide for our daily tours. Behind the hotel building, there are some shops, where you can eat some of Singapore specials and can... More

A lot of people doesn't like to stay in this hotel, they got it all wrong, just pause for a minute, and think, why are you going to singapore? Business or pleasure? If you're staying here for business, well, no doubt you'll want to stay to those fancy five star hotels and the like, go ahead and enjoy your hotel!... More

My husband and I still joke about this place, it was, in short, absolutely vile. We felt dirty and diseased after sleeping here, and did not even bother with the breakfast. Or room was filthy, brown, worn out and stank of cigarettes. Honestly I am not picky and have backpacked etc. but this was just foul. Also, staff were rude... More

Came here with my family from Vietnam... the worst hotel I've ever stayed in, seriously. Room stunk of stale cigarettes, everything was dusty, handles and drawers were falling off left, right and center... Absolutely nothing good about this place apart from Location and even then I'd stay away from this dump at all costs! Pictures on here say it all!... More

Staying in Orchard Road

Neighborhood Profile
Orchard Road
Shopping is a national pastime for Singaporeans, and after a visit to Orchard Road it’s easy to see why. This seemingly endless boulevard boasts a dizzying selection of shopping centers. From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
