Spent less time searching the streets for bus-stops and decided to check out using a Singapore Airlines Voucher for a gift pack of tea/coffee and toast set - thought it might be a nice prezzie to take home. Found the Far East Plaza and got directions to Ya Kun to collect our gifts - bit puzzled to find ourselves in the basement (a bit smelly) …
Left wonderful NZ with so many happy memories of our time there. Arriving in Singapore was a bit of a culture shock - moving from such a quiet empty country to a bustling high-rise city with shops and restaurants open 24/7 and heavy traffic right through the night. It was hot and humid though not as humid as we'd feared. Our bags were scanned by …
Hello everyone, the first day of my trip was spent in Singapore. The idea of this stop is to break up the long journey so I'm not so tired when I get to India.
I spent the day resting up and then took a trip out to visit Little India. It took a few trains and a bit of walking to get there but when I arrived I felt like I was already in …
When we first arrived in singapore we had been shocked by the airport. it had a butterfly garden, waterfalls and segways! the best airport ive ever been to! but i had not seen anything then. the first day we got settled in and went to orchard street. the heat was incredible so we would go into a shop every 100 meters to cool down. once we got over …
We had a day flight from Melbourne to Singapore, leaving at 3.30pm, taking just over 7 hours and landing around 9pm local time. So this was down as a day to play games and watch as many films as we could on our seatback TVs, rather than worry that we should be sleeping, perfect! A cheap taxi ride later we arrived at our 3* hotel, which looked more …

Historical Traveler Reviews Copthorne Orchid Hotel Singapore
I stayed at the Orchid for 3 nights in Aug 06 with my family in two adjacent rooms. Staff were generally friendly and helpful.
I was truly disappointed with the Copthorne Orchid. It is inconvenient and poor value and a real comedown from the excellent hotels Singapore can offer. The website pictures looked great, but do not be fooled! The place itself is grotty and I would say 3 star (if that?) - although the prices do not match this.
Great stop-over hotel
We stayed here for 3 nights in April '06 and certainly have no major complaints...it's a little further out of the city centre than a lot of the hotels but they provide a free shuttle bus that runs every hour till approx 10.30pm which is really convenient. For the price we paid, I don't think you can go wrong, staff were friendly, the room was clean and comfortable. I would certainly reccoment this hotel as a stop-over hotel, though possibly not as a base for a full holiday due to it's location.
Rated: Okay but some problems.
I stayed at the Copthorne Orchid hotel in september for 5 nights. The lobby is very crowded especially in the mornings when most flights arrive and checking in might take a while; be prepared. The rooms are a little tired and furnishings do not appear very well maintained though they dont appear frankly dirty. There was always the smell of cigarette smoke in the corridors outside the room and those leading to the elevator. Like in previous reviews, no shampoo/lotions provided in the rooms.
Having looked at the pictures of the hotel and its rooms on the Internet, I chose Copthorne Orchid as my accommodation while on a stopover holiday back to Hong Kong. It didn't meet my expectations at all --- the rooms were a lot smaller than I thought; no individual packaged shampoo/conditioner; ventilation in bathroom didn't work properly; bedspread looked old. By the way, the corridor to our rooms is in the open (not enclosed) which wasn't too much of a problem, but still a bit strange. What got me disappointed was I chose it because it was said to have been recently renovated, and if it had been, there was no trace of it. I believe I might have been given a room in the old wing instead of the new wing --- I hope they didn't do it just because I was on a stopover package. Anyway, if you do stay there, you might what to check whether they really do have two wings and try to get a room in the better one.
I was there for two nights. The room was excellent. It was comfortable and had all the basic amenities that a traveller would want. The only problem was the air conditioner which wasnt working well I think, because the room used to get uncomfortably warm sometimes. The breakfast was good too. I would like to stay there again in the future.
We stayed here for one night in February 05. We chose this location because we were using the MAS shuttle to Johor Bahru that departs from the hotel.
Good value good service
I stayed here in March for 10 nights and again in June/July for the same and the hotel is very good value for money.
It is out of the main town, but there is a shuttle bus running to and from Scotts Road which means that you are dropped at the heart of Orchard Road for shopping and eating. There are also plenty of taxis, or indeed you can walk to a bus stop about 2 minutes away and get one of a couple of buses to newton circus MRT.
The hotel rooms are a little tired, but kept very clean and the buffet breakfast caters for everyone. I have not eaten at the hotel of an evening but there are a choice of restaurants there, or Adam hawker centre is only about 10-15 minutes walk.
Hotel staff friendly and helpful.
Very Good Value
We stayed here for 5 nights in July 04 and found it an extremely good choice of accomodation for the money. The only disadvantage is that it is a little out of the main city area, in a rather nice residential district, but there is a courtesy bus and taxi's are very cheap! The room was clean and comfortable and air conditioned - a necessity in this climate! Fixtures and fittings may have been a little tired, but for the price that was ok. Staff were very pleasant and efficient and the late check out of 4pm very convenient as we left there on a night flight to Australia.
