“Has seen better days”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

I am thinking that back in the 90's that this hotel would have been regarded as above average to excellent.

Sad to say that compared to many international hotel, it falls way behind.

Why is this so.

No wireless internet in the rooms, making it impossible to use any mobile device.

Shower in the bathtub, without hand rail or rubber mat. Makes it like ice without.

Everything is just that little bit less.

However, on the plus side.

Clean
Quiet
Cold (air conditioner works)
Friendly service

I would recommend this to anyone that wants 1 to 2 nights and not spend a fortune.

The hotel was clean and the staff friendly, however it is in need of an upgrade. The buffet breakfast is basic but always plenty of fresh fruit, make sure you get in early otherwise all the cereal will be gone. If you are staying in Singapore longer than a couple of nights try and find somewhere a bit more modern and with a better pool area to cool off after lots of walking and shopping. The location of the hotel is good close to shops and metro station but far enou away from the shopping centre craziness of orchard road.

Unfortunately this hotel is not what I expected from Singapore or for the price we paid. The room are VERY dated and the hotel really needs a huge overhaul. The breakfact buffet is essentially a canteen with no table service expect clearance.
Though i have to say the hotel staff were fcery friendly and helpful. The location is good too. Shame about the standard of the rooms though.

We chose this hotel because of its location, at the top of Orchard Road and close to Raffles.
We arrived early after a long flight but our room was ready, so checked in, headed to bed to catch up on sleep. We were not warned about the staff fire drill that afternoon, so when my wife woke to the sound of the alarm, a staff member knocking on our door and then disappearing, the fire doors closed, it became a surreal situation that was very frightening. It took some time to determine it was only a drill, but spoilt our 3 days in Singapore, the hotel offered us a complimentary meal in the restaurant and apologised, the meal was not good, nor were the breakfasts, the staff at front of house were good, the porters specially, and the location was the hotel,s one redeeming feature. This is a business hotel and barely 3 stars. Would not stay agin, would not recommend.

Room Tip: Our room was at the end of a corridor, made the fire drill scenario even more difficult.

This is an area that is not so busy as Orchard Road and the shops are cheaper. But the Orchard Road area the hotels are better. The above hotel was completely chinese staff, deco, and food.
This did not suit us.

I always fond of Bugis area while in Singapore. It's not as crowded as Orchard, not as fancy as Clark Quay, but it is just right to enjoy the real Singapore! Whether you like to enjoy foods, shops, sightseeings, or culture, you could find them just around Bugis area.
And stayed in Grand Pacific Hotel was a perfect choice !
It's near to Bugis Street to bargain shops, it is also near to Raffles City the fancy malls and it is just right to Cityhall MRT Station to continue exploring Singapore.
To my surprise is the room in Grand Pacific is spacious compared to other hotels I ever stayed.

Hotel is dated and in need of a major make over- its only 3 star standard. Avoid lower rear bedrooms as external air conditioning unit of neighboring buildings are noisy. Breakfast grim - hotel bedrooms were clean and hotel well situated for Metro. Would certainly get a better standard hotel for the price we paid
