      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Grand Central Singapore

      Very Common


      Not really our type of hotel.

      Lobby was not grand and the staff are kinda rude and unattentive. The room that we got was at the 8th floor thinking that the rooms in the higher floors were better. It was not really what we expected. The room is too old looking and the bathroom super dooper really needs renovation. Breakfast served every morning is always the same, no variety. The dining area was also crowded.

      Only good about this hotel is its location. Near Orchard Road and near food courts and restaus. Definitely for budget travellers. :)



      Hotel was recommended and booked for us by the excellent visitor centre on Orchard road. The Grand Central is appalling, the service surly, the reception rude and the room dirty. The bathroom was filthy and sub standard. The only plus point is the position.

      Really central


      January 2006 we stayed at Hotel Grand Central for 3 nights while visiting Singapore. The best thing I can say about this hotel is the location.It is on Orchid Road and very economical. Although the staff don't smile,the breakfast is poor,the rooms have no charm,the location and the price makes this hotel worth staying.

      Not up to expected standards


      This hotel definitely did not live up to our expectations.

      The hotel room was very old, dated, and worn.

      The Bathroom was old and only just acceptable.

      We were very disappointed to find the bed covers and the carpet to be soiled.

      The breakfast arrangements definitely were not satisfactory - the selection of food was reasonable, but the quality of the food was very poor. The breakfast eating area was very crowded and once you found a seat you had to endure the mess left by the previous people.

      The room service was very good and the staff quite friendly.

      Stay away


      Probably the most filthy and disgusting hotel I ever stayed in - even the most budget hotels in Central Africa look good in comparison. The bathroom was dirty, full of mold and with overflowing pipe system. The room was just as dirty with stains all over the carpet. Quite frankly, you are better off camping than staying in that place.

      What a Joke!


      My first visit to Singapore , ok check in was alright got shown to room, all downhill, window was broken, fridge did not work, remote for tele was broken, the air conditioning was barely working lots of noise but not effecient. On asking for a safety deposit box we were told we checked in too late and some people had taken two boxes for their jewellery, with the very unsavoury people that we had seen,made me feel very wealthy (even though I,m not). We were told to hang around next day until someone checked out by deputy manager(very rude) we were three nights in Singapore did not want to waste a day waiting for somebody to check out). Anyway deputy manager told us hotel was quite safe to leave, we walked to bar across the road, lets just say that ladies of the night parade up and down this hotel every night (I will say no more.)

      On getting back to room, we intended to settle down and watch a film on tele (wrong) we suddenly had lots of flashing lights, yes in our room (our lighting) on off, on off we could do nothing about it, called electrician at 1am he proceded to stick screwdriver in live socket .

      My advice do not stay at this hotel even for free.

      If I ever go back to Singapore will be in decent hotel.

      Travelers Beware!


      This hotel is exactly the opposite of what Singapore is! It's old, very unhygienic and the bathroom is quite filthy. Better clarify with your travel agent before you book into this hotel.

      Worst hotel ever!!!


      Everything about this hotel is bad. Except for the location. I wouldn't say price because it's relatively cheap. You get what you paid for. Really dirty, old, shabby room. I almost cried in disappointment when we saw our room. The mattresses have stains, bed is very uncomfortable. The bathroom had seen its better days. Yellowish tiles, cracked watercloset, tired towels.

      The service is non existent. I am not exaggerating. The staff were horrible. I asked for some bath towels to replace the soiled ones and the lady who were sent to us was fuming mad when she handed it to me and I don't know why. She even can't wait and asked me for the used ones. As if we're going to steal their tattered towels!

      Breakfast was worst. Repetitive and greasy. There are some selections that I cannot identify. And it's too crowded and noisy.

      We were trying to change hotels the moment we saw the room but tough luck, it's fully booked everywhere.

      PLEASE. Do yourself and your companions a favor. DO NOT BOOK IN THIS HOTEL. Add a little more and spare yourself the horrors of this hotel.

      Once we were out of the airport, we took some time looking for the Japan Rail shopfront, where we could pick up our 14 day rail passes - but we got there in the end and headed down to find a train that would take us to our hotel.

      By this stage it was pretty late - around 10.30pm and there were ...

      ... line-height: 15.8599996566772px;">Firstly, getting off the ship so early is something we are going to do next time. It was so easy, no queues at customs, no lines to collect bags....smooth as silk. One taxi ride later and we were at our slightly dodgy looking hotel. (it did look very very basic. and the rooms opened up directly onto the tiny hotel reception area. More like a hostel but still one night was all we needed!

We took in the Animal friends show, and to Sassy's luck, she got picked from the crowd to participate with a few others in demonstrating a dogs ability to jump through hoops. By this time the sun was cranking, and Chloe really felt it. We got the kids changed and released them into the water park. Dunno if they put something into the water, but Chloe bounced back within seconds and spent the next ...

      At the moment I feel OK but I guess that it is in my system. I should imagine that in a couple of days I'll be struggling. Plans to go to Sentosa Island are shelved ...
