“Good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Stayed here with the family in December 2012.

Good location for Orchard Road what I now regard as the shopping centre of the world - a sight to behold. A short walk to Raffels Hotel and the Singapore Flyer. The hotel had good attentive staff. The room was spacious and well furnished. The children enjoyed making use of the swimming pool. Good value for money.

We recently stayed at the York which we found to be in a great location. The hotel is walking distance to Orchard Road shopping and the MRT transport system. Rooms were comfortable and the buffet breakfasts ample and varied. Highly recommended for family travel.

Room Tip: Great location

We recently stayed at the York and found the location to be excellent. The hotel is within walking distance to Orchard Road, public transport and the bustle of the city. Rooms were comfortable and the breakfasts varied and enticing. Recommended for family travel!

We choose the York hotel because we were travelling with young young kids aged 3 1/2 and 5 month old and we wanted a hotel with a swimming pool. Th other reason is that we got a good rate from Agoda.com which was much cheaper than the actual rate over the counter at reception.

We arrived early in the morning after a 13-hour flight from Paris, exhausted...it took reception an hour or so to sort the room as there was no room available when we arrived. Check in is at 10am I think. We were finally given a room at 8am.

The room was HUGE! It had two king size double beds, enormous! Big bathroom too, which was perfect for the four of us and the ton of luggages we had after 3 months in Europe.

The swimming pool is small but still it was a nice refreshing dip for everyone before we headed to Orchard Road which is a 15-minute walk from the hotel.

In the evening, as we were really tired again we had room service for dinner. Curries were good.

Bed linen is very soft and very comfortable. We all slept like babies, so much that reception ahd to wake us up at noon the next day for check-out!!

The best thing I can say about this place is that the food they served at breakfast was without a doubt amazing well worth going and eating there even if you don't stay there. However the room seemed a little standard for the amount we paid for it.

It was a good place and the staff were very friendly but I couldn't see where all my money that I paid had gone to in the room. The hotel lobby and food was amazing but the room sub par.

The Internet wasn't free and that didn't bother us too much. But the fact they charged you for each bottled of water you had of there's at an abnormally large price seemed a bit off. Especially when you could easily take a 5minute walk down the road to the local 7/11 of which there are thousands in Singapore it seems, and get about 3/4 bottles twice the size as the hotel offered at less than half the price.

Overall it was a good place to stay but didn't seem worth all the money we paid to stay there.

Stayed April 2012, traveled with friends

Have stayed at this hotel five times and have always found it very good. Staff are always very helpfull and friendly. There were three of us sharing a room for two nights and it was very spacious with an ironing board and iron, safe, fridge,tea making, lounge, table and chairs, TV everything you could have wanted. Breakfast was pretty good but would have liked a bit more western food. Very close to Orchard Road, the short walk was good exercise for us.

Room Tip: Family room is good for three people.
