Orchard Parade Hotel by Far East Hospitality
Travel Blogs from Singapore
Singaporeen saavuttiin siis toissapäivänä iltäpäivällä. Otettiin kentältä hotelli, sama missä yövyttiin viimex ku oltiin täällä. Perjantaina käytiin vähän puörimässä Orchard roadilla ja vetää lätyt. Lauantaina piti sit paahtaa lääkäriin ku Jussin molemmissa jaloissa oli räpylöiden aiheuttamat pahat hankaumat. Lääkäri setä antoi antibiootti kuurin …
Hurrah! The last day of the exhibition has arrived. None of the staff are free to collect me this morning so I tell them that there is no problem, I will get a taxi. I wait for what seems like forever and eventually spot a free taxi. At lunch I return again to Thunder Rice Tea with one of the staff. A reason to be glad it's the last day - I'm a bit …
I get a bit of a lie-in today which is wonderful. When I do rise I see that there is heavy rainfall. I hope this rain does not continue. I take lunch on my own as the rest of the team a too busy to take lunch today. I return to Thunder Rice Tea. After lunch I take a quick peek in the mall that's attached to the exhibition centre and find a coffee …
I try to lie in as late as possible. Yesterday was a long day and I suspect that today will hold much of the same. I am collected and taken to Little India for breakfast at a vegetarian café. It's quite alien to me to have Indian food for breakfast, but I enjoy it very much. I take lunch in the exhibition centre again, this time opting for the …
I rise early and get ready for a day of work ahead. I am collected outside the hotel and taken straight to Suntec, the exhibition centre where the fair is to take place for the next four days. I am taken for lunch in the food court within the exhibition centre. I opt for an Indian meal. The food is fantastic, but there is just too much and I …

Historical Traveler Reviews Orchard Parade Hotel by Far East Hospitality Singapore
This is quite a basic hotel with good location.
The lobby is small and always no staff opened the doors for us.
The bathroom,is very worn out but the rooms are spacious.
There are funny looking bathrobes in the wardrobe.
The mini fridge doesn't work well.
The swimming pool and gym are very small.
Rooms are efficiently cleaned everyday which is a good plus point that i noticed for this hotel.
If you are looking for a hotel and not looking for luxury,just its location,then orchard parade is for you.
This hotel was ok, nothing special. We were put in a room directly above the night club which made a racket until 3am. Complained about it and got the room changed - why put anyone there in the first place? Breakfast was ok, not a huge selection of food. Tea & coffee was always served lukewarm. The lobby bar was good to relax in & the staff were friendly. Overall the hotel is ok if you are going to spend most of your day out shopping etc. Its location is great with lots of shops and restaurants just a short walking distance away.
Time for a change
Have to agree with just about most reviews, location great, pool area was their saving grace, could hear rooms each side, whether it be tv or just loud people and always the banging doors. Brekky a tad tired, room too dark and miserable, rushed staff and the constant sharing of tables, why not just a few smaller ones here and there and make everyone happy. Bathrooms a shocker, not enough light, leaks and bath running at same time shower was. No dam clocks in the room. Did get moved to a nicer room on request so had a room overlooking the pool which was heaps better than the wall we had. Have now learnt that I should have kept an eye on a sleazy bell boy who took a fancy to my just 15 year old daughter, don't think I should say anymore!
We stayed at the Orchard Parade for 4 nights.The room was ok , nothing great. The bathroom was terribly small but clean.The breakfast isnt great , i have had better breakfasts in other Singapore hotels.The service at breakfast was disappointing. Overall , it was an average experience. The pool and hotel location were the saving grace for the hotel.
The lobby is the best feature of the hotel. The room was clean but the fittings had seen better days. Service was very good.
We arrived tired and in need of rest. sadly, the hotel is noisy. Excellent position at the start of Orchard Rd., and a Starbucks next door.
Nice view of the car park
Not a great hotel: tired fixtures, a disco that can be heard in the rooms until 3am, a colony of ants in one bed...and our view was over-looking a car park. Pool is quite good, rooms are spacious and the prices reflect the overall quality. Just don't expect the Ritz.
Orchard Parade Hotel is fine
A group of 17 spent 10 days here Feb 2005 on B&B basis. Rooms, food and service very good, facilities fine (good pool, basic gym). Location especially good for Orchard Road experience. Would go back.
This hotel used to be known as the Ming Court in the 70's. Then it was a good modern place, but now it is tired.
Our family of 2 adults and 2 children had the unfortunate experience of staying at this hotel for two nights in July - never again. From the minute we walked through the door to the time we left everything was terrible.
