Travel Blogs from Singapore
Mumbai to Singapore was a pleasant travel experience on one of our all time favourite airlines, Singapore Air. The service is present from the time you board the aircraft.
The Changi International airport is designed with a class of distinction rich in artistic contemporary styling. The green areas of plants and trees are a delight to the …
This was our second visit to the city-state of Singapore, the first was in 1982. The country is absolutely amazing! When we arrived at Singapore's airport we left the plane, went through immigration, picked up our luggage, changed money and took a cab to our hotel all in about 25 minutes. That is efficiency!
The city is also spotlessly …
Caught a taxi from the motel about nine o'clock back to Malacca Central where we made our selection from the variety of bus companies going to Singapore. Read that yesterday's accident claimed the life of the driver, and injured all five passengers. The bus departed about 10 AM. Luxury seating -- only three across. Four hour trip in total. Off the …
Spent most of the morning and afternoon sleeping in the nice bed of Le Meridan. It was great they could offer late check out. In the afternoon checked out of the hotel and left the bags at the concierge and went to Little India for some last minute shopping. Headed back to the hotel late afternoon and picked up the bags and headed to the airport. …
... no for an answer. The other passengers that were off the Qantas flight that were catching the same plane or other planes at the same time were all being told the same thing, no seats. After lots of waiting and frustration we got on the flight. I am writing this on the plane. Very old aircraft with tiny tv screens an no room for anything. I had a good sleep for a few hours and feel good. Greg hasn't slept, he is going to be lots of fun, ...

Upon arrival we were greeted with warmth and smiles. At the registration desk we were offered a glass of fresh orange juice, which was not only delicious, but very appreciated.
Our executive room is on the 8th floor and faces east. The room is spacious and very well appointed which supports the star rating. It was late when we checked in, so we opted for room service for dinner. The meal was delivered quickly, was very well plated and served hot.
The atrium in the hotel reminds us of a cruise ship, which we find very appealing.
The buffet breakfast is very generously supplied with local favorites as well as foods for the western palette.
The staff has been very helpful with any request, and they have many distinguishing awards rewarding those who shine in the line of the job.
There are many shops at the lower levels of the hotel ranging from foot massages,clothing, tailors, to condom house (yes you read that correctly) and souvenirs and gifts.
Since the hotel is located Orchard Road is a very popular area for business people as it is close to the business district. This area is also very popular with the shoppers. There are no shortage of malls, stand alone stores, and unique shops. To a keen shopper this area is a delight.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to any one.

Historical Traveler Reviews Concorde Hotel Singapore
An ordinary hotel in a great location
Didn't feel I was living on Orchard Road when I went inside the hotel room. I guess that's why it was cheaper than the rest. A very ordinary hotel with basic amenities. Everything was ordinary, not 5, not 4 and barely 3 star. View was great, location was excellent, right at the start of Orchard Road, 1 minute walk from the subway, taxi stand, malls, shopping etc. Good option if you want to save money but still stay on Orchard Road.
Ideally Located-Good Hotel
A decent 4 Star Hotel with Big Spacious Rooms. Centrally Located & has an excellent Food Court in the Basement serving a huge variety of Asian Foods. The Hotel Staff was courteous & the diner serving breakfast was good although crowded at times.
It's a Hotel for the Vacationer as it gives good access to the rest of the City through the various modes of Transport available just outside the Hotel (Bus, Taxi & MRTS).
The Mini Bar stuff was priced on the higher side & the Shower felt like it's going to burst any moment with the Pressure! The Hotel does need lot of renovation as the walls inside the room were chipping off.
Still a good Hotel -worth the price you pay.
Cheap 4 star hotel. Does not keep up expectations. Had problems with Internet, but would not trust guest at all. Gave incorrect room type at check in. Overall would AVOID, also hard to leave hotel and get to Orchard Rd, takes 2 elevators.
I found this to be a very nice hotel for the price. Rooms were of good size, the lobby is very nice, and the staff was fine. The location is very good, between 2 subway stations, and there is a Post Office nearby (even open sundays!). Some smaller items detract from a 5* rating. By car it has a nice driveway, but by foot you go through a tacky shopping mall. It really should have a direct entrance. No ice buckets in the rooms - they want you to call room service; a strange choice in the tropical climate. (In Singapore you don't tip -it's included - so that isn't it.) Once they forgot to leave more toilet paper during cleaning although a call to housekeeping fixed that. (Still it's very basic for a hotel.) A friend had a bit of a sticky door lock in his room. And they should explain the system where you stick your card-key into a slot to turn on the lights. It's fine, but I had to figure it out.
Exceeded my expectations!
my husband and i chose this hotel after viewing and surfing the internet for a week or so. we wanted a hotel located at the center of orchard road. we arrived one noon after the chinese new year 2005. surprise! surprise! the lobby was spacious and the elevators can be seen from here. the rooms are large enough. the beds are very nice to sleep in after a whole day of sightseeing and shopping! hotel staff are polite and reliable. would definitely come back and recommend this hotel to others, as well.
Despite the fact that this hotel is over 20 years old, and was last refurbished in 1992, Le Meridien Singapore is still very much a world class hotel and has been kept in beautiful condition.
Not 4-star quality
You may find this to be among the cheapest "4-star" hotels in Singapore. You get what you pay for. On a recent trip we saw several hotel lobbies and room interiors in Singapore (because of fellow conference attendees). Le Meridien was very disappointing. The room needs a lot of updating -- it is not top rate. We didn't like the beds, the hair dryer, or the amount of light. Business/techie travellers will be infuriated by the lack of power outlets. Simply not that good of a hotel.
I booked into Le Meridien after a very disappointing stay at another Singapore hotel. The comparison was like night and day.
This hotel had some of the most professional and pleasant staff I've ever had the pleasure of meeting during a stay in a hotel.
The hotel is conveniently located for both the main shopping area in Orchard Road and the Quayside where there are lots of very nice restaurants etc.
The rooms were beautiful and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay there!!
As Le Meridien is one of the best hotel chain in the world, I expected a very good hotel... Well, I was a little bit disappointed by Le Meridien Singapore... I would give it only a 3-stars european rating, and I thought that Le Meridien was a 5-stars chain... I think the problem is that it's not a recent hotel, so most things are outdated there. The swimming-pool is a joke, but a renovation is scheduled for 2005... Rooms are nice, big, clean... Le Meridien qualities are there: staff very courteous, cleanliness above average, restaurant very good... Hotels's position is very good: it's situated directly on Orchard Road, the best tourist neighborhood in Singapore !!! Maybe with a total refurbishment, this hotel will deserve again his name !
