“Good location for MRT and orchard rd, seen better days.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2011

Stayed 3 nights with family in adjoining rooms 24th-27th July. Whilst the rooms were 'adequate' they had definetly seen better days. Bathrooms in need of a refurb.
Good location 5 mins from orchard rd MRT and 15 mins from Newton circus hawker market.
Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Buffet breakfast was fine but had to queue for eggs. Pool was good but not enough loungers.
Adequate for a couple of nights if you're passing through but not for anything longer.

We stayed here as a family and quite enjoyed this hotel. After a long flight from Brisbane, it was nice to be able to relax in the cool air conditioning! I'm not sure what some people are talking about, but this hotel is literally a one minute walk to orchard road.. just down the driveway. Anyway, as for the hotel, it's clean and well kept although, we stayed on the third floor and it had a really weird/gross ish smell.. durians maybe?! The pool was really nice but we did only get to use it once as we were so busy! Travelling from the hotel was easy.. we went to sentosa, the zoo, mt faber, china town (watch out, they're very persuasive!) and a whole lot of othe places. I recommend staying at the york, but just be mindful of the third floor smell, i'm not sure if this is the same on every floor though!

Happy travelling!

Room Tip: Third floor had a weird smell.

The only hotel around orchard road with a reasonably family room since we're travelling with in a group of 4. Orchard road is just less than 10 mins walking distance. The room could fit 3 more people. The only downside is that the road towards the hotel is uphill. And the shortest way to access the hotel from orchard road is up the road in between Tangs and Lucky plaza

Room Tip: The family room for 4 is newly renovated, modern interior and very spacious

This is the third time I have stayed at the York Hotel. Twice on Business and once on holiday.
The staff are most helpful. The rooms are spacious and well kept. The restaurant caters for several nationalities. Breakfast is good and plentiful. The main shopping area of Orchard Road is a mere 5 minutes walk away. Taxis are plentiful.
This time I had a package of breakfast and computer broadband for about £118 per night, which for such a hotel in Singapore is good.
The hotel has a small swimming pool with adjacent changing rooms, which are kept spotlessly clean .

Room Tip: Ask for a package. This is cheaper . I paid£118 per night for 2 people in a spacious room with inter...

This is a really lovely hotel in walking distance of the Orchard Road. We had a large family room and could not fault anything. The breakfast buffet was particulary good. But as any mid range hotel in Singapore still expensive.

After a long flight back from London it was wonderful to check into this very conveniently located, clean, comfortable and quiet hotel. Staff are helpful and friendly and our wondrful large corner room was spotless. A short walk had us amongst all the action in Orchard Road and Paragon Plaza...a shoppers paradise. We have visited Singapore many times and stayed in different hotels each visit but the York is definitely in for a revisit.

We were on a family holiday and decided to stay at the York beacause we had stayed here on a previous holiday 2 years ago and had a great experience.

Unfortunately this was not to be the case this time.
The hotel rooms are in need of refurbishment and having some maintenance done.

We checked into the hotel in the evening after dissembarking from our cruise. We were shown to room 922. We were given 3 single beds. We booked in January and asked for a queen/king and a single. The staff said they would try to move us the next day. We turned in the A/C but it didnt work. The maintenance man came to look at it but couldnt get it working properly. Again I asked to be moved to another room but all the could offer was a cabana room, but as we had a child with us and the lay out of the room this was inappropriate. So we put up with it for the night. The maintenenance men came again the folowing day again, but were unable to fix the A/C but were still not able to and informed me that guests the previous week had complained about theA/C not working and that is was unbearable in the room. I again spoke to the front desk who promised to do their best to move us that day. Fortunately we were able to move later in the day to another room. This new room only had 2 single beds in it and housekeeping had to bring in a rollaway bed for my daughter. But at least the A/C was working in this room.

On another note the breakfast buffet had seemed to go down hill since our last stay two years ago, tiles in the bathroom were falliing off from around the bath, the bell boys did very little to help you in and out of the hotel with your bags.

We shall not be staying at the York again. Stay away from room 922.
