“Not bad value, considering it is Singapore...”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Smallish room with attached bathroom was not exceptionally clean, but it did have aircon, TV, and the bed was comfortable. We arrived late and took the airport shuttle here, but discovered in the morning that it is relatively close to an MRT station (under 10 minutes' walk). You do have to transfer several times to get to the city centre, but Singapore's public transport is so good that this was not an issue for us. Staff were helpful and gave us a map and explained to us how to get to the zoo by train and bus (it took only half the time they told us it would, though).

Stayed February 2014, traveled as a couple

Everyting is good except one male in the front desk. Kind of old guy that don't seem to be helpful to the guest. Rest of the person in the front desk is very nice and helpful. The rooms not that big but very comfortable to stay... Value for money... Thanks Hotel 81 Orchid...

We had to live closer to the convention centre as it was a business trip and we were visiting an exhibition. The area around the hotel is very sleazy and has a funny smell. Not the safest for single women. Rooms were small and kind of dingy and damp. Cleanliness was okay considering the room were old and there was only so much that cleaning could help.

Stayed here for two nights, good location on orchard road not far from St Andrew's church. Room extremely small, more like a pod. Would not recommend for long duration due to lack of storage. But key feature is its location

The room was small but adequate with 2 bathrooms, 2 T.V's, 2 single beds & a double bed - room had originally been 2 but made into a family room . Free Wi-Fi but had to ask for code every 24hrs. Rooms were clean with free tissues, toothbrushes, combs and a bottle of water per person supplied each day. Electric jug supplied with a small bar fridge and air conditioning. Staff were helpful. Bus stop 5 minutes away. Didn't notice any 'ladies of the night' outside.

Spent 5 night there..The room was small..No closet and no space for luggage..
But clean and nice employees.
The WIFI system is weird..You must ask password each day for each device..
So the morning you have to go downstairs to get the code..
Location is OK..
Bus Stop 2 minutes away..
No cleaner around!!
Laundry 15 minutes walk..
Good quality price for Singapore..
