“Great location - but a bit tired”
Reviewed September 17, 2009

We have been staying here since the end of May 2009 and will be here until November. My husband is working at Jurong shipyards and our son (aged 27, a student) and I accompanied him. The company block-booked 8 apartments, 2 3 bedroom and the remaining 2 bedroom. Each apartment has two bathrooms. There is a kitchen, and lounge dining room also. The apartments are in various degrees of refurbishment - ours has nice wooden floors, but the kitchen is way past its best. There was no hot water to the kitchen when we arrived, the fridge/freezer was not working properly, all the air conditioners leaked and we ran out of gas to the hotplates. On the plus side, maintenance were quick to attend to the problems and with a cheerful and helpful attitude. The management office staff are also friendly and efficient. The apartment is well placed, literally around the corner from bustling Orchard Road, at the back of funky Far East Plaza with its 5 floors of fashion and food. We are five minutes from Orchard MRT and there is a bus stop right outside the front of the Plaza. We have StarHub satellite TV and for a very small extra fee ($25 a month) were able to add about a dozen extra channels. I wouldn't recommend staying here overnight, but for a week at least, and even longer, it's ideally situated to explore Singapore, especially if you just want to shop on Orchard Road or explore the individual cheap and cheerful shops in Far EAst Plaza.
