“Good Place for long stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Best location to stay.In orchid road itself so Friday & sat night it best place to stay. Neon light means that you have a giant TV if you open the curtains. Internet connectivity was really really BAD. Breakfast is OK if not great. Very near to Somerset MRT on Red line. Staff is polite although they were very very rude to non residents, with non resident not even allowed to enter & all resident from below.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

I moved from Somerset Cairnhill to escape the 24 hour construction to Somerset Orchard. I was allocated a corner room (10-07) with double aspect from the bedroom over 2 busy roads. Ill fitting curtains which gaped over the bed meant that the neon lights from the advertising screen pervaded the room. The whole apartment was poorly designed, and I've seen better student accommodation.

Downgrading to a studio room proved to be much quieter and a better designed space.

In its favour, the bed is comfortable, the sheets good quality and the staff are friendly and helpful. A few steps away from Orchard Road with all the dining choices you could wish for to suit all budgets. Try Wild Honey in Mandarin Gallery for a fabulous brunch.

Room Tip: Avoid 10-07 and rooms on that side. Rooms overlooking Koek Road are quiet and there are some rooms...

It's a decent place with decent service. The breakfast is better as compared to other service apartments, plus the location is awesome. Orchard road is a must go place in Singapore. The room serive is not so great but it's alright. Also the internet connectivity was not so good at the time i was there. All in all it was a decent living experience.

Ignoring any facts in any of the review, This is one Best Value for money at the LOCATION called Orchard Road/Orchard Point. With so many outlets in the vicinity. you would never get bored if you have free time during the evenings.

Room Tip: They play open theatre movies, make sure you are not too near the ground floor on weekends.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

I stayed here for two weeks with family. The apartment itself was ok. We definitely had enough room, but the furnishings were pretty sparse. We did have a washer and dryer in the apartment, which was nice. They provided daily breakfast but we eventually got tired of having the exact same thing every day. The breakfast area is also very cramped so sometimes you have to eat in shifts and wait for a seat. Staff was very helpful and friendly.

I would stay here again but only because of the fabulous location. It is close to two MRT stops (one is an interchange). There are also a couple taxi stands and bus stops nearby. There is a Cold Storage (supermarket) a few minutes away. It's also in the vicinity of many good restaurants/ food courts and of course there are many places to shop/ window-shop.

Well, before I shifted in, I read some of the reviews here. So, I did not have high expectations for this place. However, after having stayed here, I think I have chosen the right place to live in for my confinement period.

First of, the apartment is comfortable. It is huge. Being in land scarce Singapore, I am surprised the apartments here are so spacious. Secondly, its service. Staff here goes the extra mile to make sure their guests' stay here is not just comfortable but memorable. What touches me was that when I checked in and came into the apartment, it was decorated somehow with pictures of my family. I straight away felt at home. And during my birthday, the management actually bought me a big cake for me and my family. The security is good too. Due to its location, getting anywhere is no hassle at all. The MRT, bus stops, departmental stores, supermarket are all at our doorsteps!

I will recommend this place to anyone. Great place to stay!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

I travel alone a lot for work and wanted an apartment in Singapore as I am staying for eleven nights. I want independence and flexibility, and the Somerset Orchard offers these and more. It's close to Somerset MRT, about a 5-7 minute walk, and there's a supermarket even closer-by that allowed me to fill my huge, sparkling-clean fridge and freezer with goodies - you don't get that in from a hotel mini-bar. The washing machine is a huge bonus too - no more hotel laundry (which personally I hate, I know there are many who would argue). I haven't needed to cook as there are so many restaurants around here - Cuppage Plaza is great and 3 mins walk away.

The pool is fabulous, a little oasis in the middle of a steaming city. The gym was also excellent and well equipped. Breakfast was fine - a choice of cereal, fruit, toast, a few hot items, juice, coffee etc. It's what you'd eat at home, rather than eating a ton of food because it's there, which is what usually happens in hotels at breakfast! The staff couldn't have been friendlier and more helpful.

There's a lot of negative reviews about this place - well my experience has been excellent. It was spotlessly clean, spacious and comfortable. Yes it's a bit dated, but that's fashion for you - things change. I've loved my stay here.
