YMCA One Orchard
Ranked #23 of 240 Specialty Lodging in Singapore
Reviewed April 22, 2014

not to consider this as a star hotel but the good rating was given to the location and value of money. It is located at one end of Orchard Road and 5 minutes walk to the MRT station. The size of room was small but the cleanliness was fine.

My family of 5 booked into a triple and superior room. Although the size of the rooms were small, it was okay since we were just there to sleep. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, sheets and towels smelled fresh and pristine white clean. The toilet, shower and drain, were all functioning well. The complimentary breakfast, although nothing fancy was enough to fill our stomachs till lunch time. It was a no frills, no fuss hostel, staff in the check in counters were efficient and helpful when we asked for directions and what buses to take to certain destinations. Location was the best, very accessible to anywhere. Mtr was five minutes walk. There was a bus stop right at the front door and a corner away was the bus stop for the Singapore Attractions Express which took us to Singapore Zoo. There was even a tour desk in the lobby if you wanted tours to Malaysia and other Singapore attractions. Our stay in Singapore was made really comfortable and memorable with YMCA@ONE ORCHARD. And to it room rates where reasonable, cheap if you must say, by SG standards. For sure, this will be the hotel we will be staying at on our future visits to SG. Highly recommended....

To begin with, you cannot find a more central location, and you cannot find
a better price. The rooms are good; if you want fancy, you can pay $200 or $300 more. Some rooms have excellent views. My wi-fi worked very well, the room was very clean and the bed firm. There are some features which rival a 5 star hotel: the remarkable roof top swimming pool and the excellent gym. The breakfast is very good--way above "continental," and the busy, attractive room is kept running by efficient and pleasant ladies. A couple of hints: to get the hot water in the shower, you have to flip the switch in the bedroom; and, city bus No. 36 goes to the airport for $2.30; however, you would not want to try it with luggage at anywhere near rush hour. The bus loops around so that after 20 minutes you'll see the YMCA again.

Fantastic location right in the middle of the city. Clean and comfortable rooms that were cleaned everyday. Brilliant pool on the roof with views of the city. Breakfast was okay, but there was never enough of it.

YMCA isn't known for luxury, nor is it intended to be luxurious. YMCA hotels provide safe and economical accommodations for budget-minded travelers. YMCA One Orchard does that, but it also places its guests in one of the best locations Singapore has to offer. It's a short walk to great restaurants...to Singapore's world-class MRT...to the busy downtown area and to museums and to shopping. And it doesn't charge outrageous prices for its rooms!

Now...about those rooms. By Asian non-luxury hotel standards they're of about average size, which means somewhat small by most United States standards, but I wasn't cramped. Beds are comfortable enough for a good night's rest. Decor is plain and dated, but clean and in good repair. En suite bathrooms are adequate and hot water was always available during my stay.

I ate breakfasts in the hotel and they were satisfying, although there was not a wide variety of choices. After a week it became somewhat boring, but not so much so that I went elsewhere. Next time I'll most probably do the same.

WiFi (important for business travelers!) was good enough for email, general surfing and voice-only Skype so I have no real complaints.

As I stated in the title of my review, the YMCA One Orchard isn't a fancy hotel but it IS safe and comfortable. The location can't be beat, and overall it's a good value. I recommend it, and I'll be glad to stay there again when I need a hotel in this part of Singapore.

Booked 5 rooms for family holiday. Room a feel bit tired with tv that is blurry on some channels. What is annoying is the bed that keeps moving away when you sit with your back against the bed panel. It won't stay still and you can't watch tv comfortably on the bed. Pool was nice with view of Marina Bay at your horizon. Overall I would give 4 stars for the location and the cleanliness.

Room Tip: Request for room facing the Marina Bay and you can watch the laser show at night from the convenienc...

Rooms a little on the tired side but clean. Great rooftop pool (25 yards, I think). Excellent location a few mins walk from Dhoby Ghaut, which has 3 lines. Breakfast was adequate, nothing special, but it was included in the room rate and meant we didn't have to venture out first thing to find food, which was appreciated. All the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I had been concerned that there would be lots of young children running around but there were only a handful throughout our week-long stay. Would have no hesitation in staying here again.
