“Clean hotel with friendly staff in a great location”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

I stayed at the Orchid hotel, Singapore for a period of 3 weeks for a business visit.

As other reviewers have also mentioned, indeed the hotel is at a fantastic location. Right in the CBD (central business district) the hotel is very close to the Tanjong Pagar MRT station, 100 AM shopping mall and all the utility places nearby.

Another surprise is the large rooms in the hotel. Going by the hotel room sizes in Singapore, the rooms in the hotel are really big and quiet and very comfortable. The rooms on the higher floors are great.

The hotel also has a swimming pool and a sauna, gym at the third floor and the hotel also servers food at the pool side. The views from the third floor near the swimming pool are simply great specially in the evenings. Do take a dip in the pool to enjoy the same.

The only issue I faced is the lack of vegetarian food (well, not just this hotel, being vegetarian is not a great thing in Singapore) at the breakfast and dinner. Apart from that I enjoyed my 3 weeks stay at the hotel. Not to forget, the staff had been very helpful and I felt invited (although the staff the reception desk could be a bit more gentle and caring just as the staff in the restaurant and room service).

Overall a very nice stay.

There is no doubt this hotel is no style icon and it is very beige (the rooms literally are), however it is very comfortable. We had a deluxe room (with Queen bed and single) which was very spacious and well appointed. Note that it is not obvious on some hotel booking sites that the bedding configuration is suitable for a family so I recommend you check the hotel website before selecting your room. As noted by other reviewers, the location is great with a nearby MRT station and Chinatown just a 10 minute walk. We would definitely consider staying here again.

I stay here regularly whenever I'm on business to Singapore. The location is perfect - near CBD and just 2 mins walk to Tg Pagar MRT station.

Amenities are decent, nothing to shout about. Room is clean and spacious by Singapore standards (read: usually small).

Overall, I highly recommend this place for business travellers on a tight budget to Singapore. Not suitable for family with kids.

I search from online booking and do the trip with my wife n one little boy. The location is very near from MRT - station. just walking in front of the hotel you will reach the station. Also we can find many food around the hotel, morning until late nite.
the room is big and i got a special large bed (one big bed n one small bed). with 2 side of the room have window.
i do not pay the room for breakfast, so i just walking about 10 minutes to the foodcourt around the hotel.
at this point, i give the score is 7/10. good.

Room Tip: room with 2 side Windows and big bed

I had a wonderful time at the Orchid Hotel.
The beds were comfortable. Although I never got to swim, the swimming pool seemed small but suitable for a quiet wade in the water.
What I liked most about this hotel was its proximity to many great sites.
I could walk to the nearby Chinatown and the hotel wasn't too far from other places.

The location was very convenient for shopping and getting on to the bus if you do not want a taxi ride. Room was very nice. my seven day here was fabulous with superb food on the main hall restaurent. An ideal hotel to spent your time on holiday or on business.
