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. …
... are Battlestar Galactaca themed rollercoasters - 'Cylon' is a coaster suspended from the track with legs free that performs intense manoeuvres including several inversions in the form of a zero-g roll, a Cobra roll, corkscrews and vertical loops. The Cylon coaster also plunges in to a 16ft deep pit filled with artificial fog that gives the sensation of a near miss with the ground. The 'Human' coaster reaches speeds of up to 90 kph ...
... I was still feeling a bit crook so gave dinner a miss but managed to down about 8 beers with my old mate who wouldn't hear of me putting my hand in my wallet.
We had a great dinner/catch up and reluctantly called it a night. This was followed by another terrible cab ride back to the hotel where the cabbie took us to the wrong hotel via the underground carpark maze again..we got there eventually by which time it was well and truly time for bed.

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.
More than Satisfactory for the price
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.
Overall though I would stay there again - I consider those minor points, and it was significantly less expensive than other Orchard Road properties.
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.
Nothing short of expectations
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.
On the exterior, you cannot even tell it is a hotel, if you take away the Le Meridien signage, and while for some who want status and to be seen will not like this, for us, it provides the perfect secret hideaway location on this busy stretch of road! The Orchard Road entrance requires guests to go down one floor and walk out of the exit of the little Shopping complex below. Access by taxi and vehicles requires a drive up a hidden ramp to a secluded level where the main entrance to the lobby atrium stands.
The atrium itself is a large 4 or 5 story high area spanning the entire height of the hotel. Yes, this hotel isnt a high rise building, and this is made up in its supreme length!
4 panaramic lifts (2 on each side) provide guests with a beautiful view from whatever floor they are on. Live music is played on the grand piano in the lobby lounge, where coffee and cakes can be bought for relaxation.
The best part for me, however, was the room! I know that sounds weird, but let me explain. We arrived from a coach at about 8:30pm at the hotel, and we had booked 2 rooms at the lowest possible price, just to get by one night to make a flight the next day. On the website, we selected the $SGD150 per room rate (normal rates are above $SGD300), and apparently they had sold our room earlier that day (since we arrived so late!). So the lady said that she must upgrade us to a room with kitchenette. My first thoughts were wow! Which hotel room has a kitchenette??
As we got the room key cards, I asked wondered why the room numbers are the same (for both the rooms; 831). So we embarked on the tremendous walk ALL the way down the hall (remember the hotel is very long and short!) right to the end, where I was surprised to find that our room had double doors, with a wooden and glass logo with 'Opal Suite' written on it. I simply couldnt wait and burst open the door to find the largest hotel room I have seen in my entire life!
Upon entrance, the is a hallway. On the immediate left, there is a glass seperator into the lounge room, which features a 9 seater couch, a desk with private fax facility, a large TV with DVD player, and enough free floor space to hold a cocktail party for 30-40 people! To the immediately right, there is a guest powder room, then a kitchenette, and a pair of double door glass doors (another hallway) which leads to the conference room, equiped with 10 seater conference table, ornaments and telephones. Continuing down the hallway, on the left is the master bed room (with its own lounge area, desk, bathroom with jacuzzi and a king sized bed) and on the right is a second bed room (with 2 single beds, its own seperate lounge area, desk and bathroom). Both the second bedroom and conference room had window views of busy Orchard road, while the main bed room and lounge had views of the pool deck below (with balcony that couldnt be opened!). What on earth does a family of 4 do with ALL this space???
I gotta tell ya that $SGD300 (2 rooms at bottom $SGD150 each) was definately well worth the money! Speaking of money terms, I later looked at the lobby where the hotel room rates were published and noticed that the 'Opal' suite actually cost $SGD1400 per night! So save up, coz its well worth the bucks!
It is for business people (hence the conference room), but i love it for the space! To live like a king for a day or so.
Later that evening, we went to look for something to eat. I noticed on the desk, however, that a voucher sat there for Cafe Georges (the hotels international restaurant), where if you pay for 3 adults, you get the 4th free, and a free glass of wine is also provided. So we went for this, and i have to tell you, for $SGD32++ per adult, this is a steal! They served plenty of seafood (including cooked lobster, sashimi, etc.) and desserts that literally melt in your mouth. Service here was nothing below standard in true french Le Meridien style that people worldwide have become accustomed to. The Assistant Manager was also vry chatty and advised us about the savings afforded to Orchard Road customers at this (sale) time of year. Very friendly and courteous staff indeed.
Le Meridien Hotels also has a frequent stayers club, called Le Meridien Moments, which lets you earn points (1 point for every 2 pounds spent at any Le Meridien Hotel worldwide) and receive free rooms or upgrades. They can also be transfered to frequent flyer programs, and joining the program is free.
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 !
