Arrived early in the hotel (9:00 AM) and were told that our room is ready if we want to check-in. The family room was massive with two queen size beds and one single bed with a table and chairs to sit and eat our take away comfortably and a safe deposit box. The room was newly refurbished and it was... More

Arrived too early (7:00 am) but allowed to check-in 7:30 with no extra charge. Normal check-in time is 12:00-2:00pm. Stayed for 6 nights in a spacious family room #408 of two queensize beds with sofa, side tables and a safe deposit box. Shower room with bath tub though there is a liquid soap you have to buy soap and shampoo... More

Stayed here for four nights on a short holiday. The hotel is plain and comfortable but fairly spacious for a twin bed room. The hotel is a bit old and run down however as a base to come back to while out shopping it was perfectly fine. The shower was a bit annoying and not comfortable to use. However the... More

This hotel is in a great location - at the start of Orchid Rd, a few blocks from Raffels and a short walk to the Marina Bay area. They are currently building a new MRT stop in the same street - which will only make things easier once completed but it is only a very short walk to the closest... More

Strand is well located , not far from MRT metro station or bus routes. It is a popular hotel, probably for its reasonable rates including breakfast with large enough rooms. Our room was overlooking the new construction site on bencoolen street, closed for that reason. Otherwise, Orchard st is just walking distance, the great Raffles Hotel is also walking distance...

Hotel is average, but still had a pleasant stay. Hotel room was very dark and not very well decorated. Hotel walls are not painted very well and choice of colours made it appear dark and it was poorly lit. However, room was clean and spacious and the maids were very pleasant and helpful. Apart from Phleen, hotel staff need to... More

Stayed 3 nights here. The location was great and the breakfast good- staff in the cafe were friendly and attentive. The hotel reception staff were unwelcoming, short and unfriendly. Our room was something out of the film Beetle Juice. There were blood stains on the carpet and the decor was disgusting. There was a see through glass wall and window... More

The Strand hotel is good value for money, but certainly not a five star hotel. On previous trips to Singapore I have stayed at the Raffles and Marriott Orchard Road, both of which are much better but also priced several times higher than the Strand. Rooms are OK, but the bathtub shower was slippery. A rubber mat was provided but... More

Stayed here 3 nights...August 2013. Huge construction MRT work is going. 7-11 & food court near the hotel. Easy to get Bus & taxi. We didn't like their breakfast . So typical. No variation. Small bathroom . Smell on the floor.
