“So and so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2012

The hotel is very central near Somerset station. Rooms are quite big but very old. Service is so and so.
It's cheaper than other hotels in the same area so you get what you pay. The air conditioning is quite difficult to set because when you leave your room it goes back automatically to the pre-set temperature and when you're back it seems like you're changing from summer to winter at the north pole.

I was warmly greeted by the front desk upon arrival!

The best thing about the location is that you are a few blocks away from Orchard Rd and its legendary shopping. We found a great happy hour at an Italian steakhouse on Killiney in the first block toward Orchard with a great happy hour and surprisingly extensive menu, so you don't have to go far for food. When we needed a taxi the concierge would call, and we never had to wait long. The room was spacious and had enough room to sit and bathroom big enough for sharing for a couple. The bath was nice, but sometimes hot water was scarce.

Breakfast is adequate, but repetitive.

My main comment, though, is about the gym. The treadmill is not suited for running, there is no elliptical trainer at all, no warm up or yoga mats, no water cooler, etc. In short, it did not appear that the exercise room was expected to be used. That was a disappointment because the closest gym is on Orchard and charged 55 sg dollars per day for use. At that price I should have just checked into a more expensive hotel that had a decent gym.

Good location. A lot of food stalls nearby and walking distance to Orchard Road. Peaceful location with a supermarket and pharmacy nearby. Good front office service. Very efficient.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

We stayed in 2008 and it was an OK hotel. For an orchard hotel, OGC has (sometimes) better rate thatn the others around. However, on our Dec 2011 trip, the hotel looks really old.
Our room was nothing like a SGD260 room at all.
1. The lighting was very limited. All the furnitures are really outdated.
2. What made it terrible was the non-smoking room was full of smoke during 10pm-3am. A complaint through the front desk didnt result anything.
3. I requested a power adaptor 3pcs (one for laptop, the other one for boiling water and another to charge my camera). The front desk just declined the request and said that they only limit one per each room. They also ask you to sign a form when receiving the power adaptor

Room Tip: Just nice for a single traveller. With family, I would suggest you getting a rather expensive hotel...

I stayed here several years ago and was there off and on for about a year. it is hands down a better bargain the the Landmark Village and is more centrally located to the city center. It also has a better resturant with better prices, and there is a hawker stand directly accross the street if you want to sit under a canopy and have a beer.

This serviced apartment is located in a very convenient location. 5-10 min walk from Somerset station/Orchard Road shopping area. The hotel itself is not new but the rooms are spacious (I was staying in a one-bedroom suite), clean and the condition is very good generally. Friendly and helpful staff. Singtel store is opposite to the hotel in case anyone needs to get a SIM card for their mobiles. The famous Killiney Kopitiam is 5 min walk from the hotel and there are lots of food stalls along the street next to the hotel. Free wifi.

The hotel is just 10 to 15 minutes walk away from orchard road and the nearest mrt statuion (somerset).hawker foods just across teh street. fairprice supermarket just right beside the hotel. watson and the hotel restaurant are just downstairs. Rooms designs are very dull and typical of the 3 star budget hotels. the elevator is very difficult to use ad higher floors requires the card to be swiped before you can push the buttons.
The free wifi internet is very FAST. Buffet breakfast is OK (not a variety of selections).No free bottled water in the room, good thing that the supermarket is minutes away.
