“Month long relocation stay”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Our family recently relocated to Singapore, and while searching for permanent accommodation we stayed at Darby Park.
The location is good, 5 minutes to Orchard Road and many restaurants and malls and public transport.
The room itself was too small for 5 people. The beds were rock hard, the kitchen was useless. It was too small and the cooking equipment was minimal. No useful toaster, no large enough frypan or saucepan. Cooking anything required me to cook 2 or 3 separate batches.
Service at the apartments was terrible. The staff were not friendly or helpful.
The pool is small but adequate.
Breakfast is available from 6.30 to 9 in the lobby. Most days they ran out of bread or fruit or both, knives and glasses. There was never enough food or seats available. If you asked for top ups you were told no. At the dot of 9am they packed anything that was left away, even if it was clear you were still eating.
Laundry was communal, and the washing machines kept resetting themselves meaning you had to start the cycle all over again.
I would not recommend anyone to stay here. It is over priced for what it is.

internet does not work most of the time, even when it does it is so slow that it's basically useless. no chance of using skype. rooms are aged and have bad odour because of that. A/C does not help get rid of the humidity causing clothes to become mouldy. washing machines do not wash properly, have to go 2+ cycles (and each cycle costs SGD5!). all in all, there are plenty of places in SG that are much much better value for money.

One of these simple places. Tiny rooms, clean but somewhat aged. No breakfast (they offer something called "light breakfast" in the morning but that is just some tiny croissants, muffins, toast and cereals plus coffee or milk). Beside the pool and the as well tiny gym with not much more than a treadmill there are no facilities. However the place does have a self laundry service for 5SGD which is quite helpful if you stay for longer. Walking distance to Orchard Rd is nice to kill some time in the evenings.

It is suitable for single person business long term (3+ weeks) but not suitable for vacation or leisure.

Room Tip: High floors with pool view seems to be quite good

Being on Orange Grove Road makes it a little quieter than those in the prime area of Orchard Road. There's a basic breakfast buffet in the lobby on weekdays, making it really convenient for business travelers. The pool and gym seem a tad small. The apartments are large but fittings are getting a little dated. They have provided most of what one needs for a pleasant stay, including a drying rack, which I find very useful. Laundry charges are reasonable, and to be more economical, there's always the self-service laundrette within the building. Would I be back? Yes.
