Somerset Orchard Apartments

by ariesnz

Just wondering if anybody has stayed at the Somerset Orchard Apartments on Orchard Road. Is deluxe equivalent to 4-star?

Also, the Living in Singapore apartments? Thanks

RE: Somerset Orchard Apartments

It's equivalent of a 3 star hotel.

Honestly, I have very little impression of the hotel? I did a search on Google and found the building not too 'familiar' even though it's supposed to be situated along the most famous stretch of road in Singapore. The photo that I saw on the Google search appeared very old and dated? It's more famously known as a serviced apartment for expatriates if I'm not mistaken but I'm not sure if they have a separate section for the hotel guest.

There are tons of good hotels in Singapore and many along the stretch of Orchard Road, description showed that it's located towards the tail of the stretch.

Thought you might find this link useful (and they offer one of the best hotel rates in Asia!)

Sure? Thanks.
I've been reassured by The Ascott Group that their deluxe apartments are equivalent to 4-star hotels!

Hi, we lived in S'pore for 7 yrs and hubby still works there, though we live in NZ. Teen daughter and I have just got back from a 17 day stay to visit hubby and he booked Riverside View serviced apartments, down on Robertson Quay, opposite Clarke Quay. Great area,loads of lovely Singapore food and close to Chinatown for shopping. $5 taxi to Orchard. Impressed with apt., 2 bdrms, 2 bathrooms, marble floor in lounge/dining, fully fitted kitchen & laundry. Maid service 3 x weekly. Pool, gym, satellite tv and free breakfast. Website is www.fareastsvcapts.com.sg. Their rates are negotiable - try to knock off 25%. We were in the river-front 4-story block (top floor) great for watching the bumboats go by. Good luck.

Hotel help

by ambitachenai

Hello All,

I have a 13 hour layover in Singapore and have been offered a choice of Grand Mercure Roxy and Parkroyal on Coleman street. Any suggestions??? All I do know is that I have got to make it to Orchard Street.

Thanks

Re: Hotel help

by xuessium

HI!

The Grand Mercure Roxy is nowhere near Orchard Road. It's actually along the East Coast & is closer to the airport.

You'll do better with the Hotel Park Royal. City Hall MRT (subway) station is nearby and it's just 1-3 stops away from the 3 stops along Orchard Road (Dhoby Ghaut, Somerset & Orchard)

Re: Hotel help

by DarkRay

You will definitely be much happier at Grand Plaza Park Hotel City Hall (previously known as Grand Plaza ParkRoyal). In terms of location, room, facilities, amenities and service, it beats Grand Mercure Roxy hands down, although the later is still a nice hotel.

Just my 2 cents.... :-)

Re: Hotel help

by Raptor22

Take Parkroyal. And it's called Orchard Road which is only a stone's throw from Coleman Street.

Re: Hotel help

Thanks guy's... Hope to make it to Orchard 'Road' ;-) !!!

Hi Merv

by kat33

Thanks for the info. We are actually transfering from a Jetstar asia flight so Qantas are not responsible. Im just angry at them coz was misguided. They dont fly from Phuket thats why we are on Jetstar. They just won't let us check in any earlier than 6am. I haven't been to Singapore airport but what I gather is that you need a boarding pass to gain access to the many shops restaurants, lounges etc. There is nothing where you check-in. Is this right??

RE: Hi Merv

by M.E.R.V

hiya kat, your supposed to reply to the answer i gave you instead of posting a new one...haha. i understand what you mean now. if you arrive at 12 on jetstar, you will just have to take your bags and enter singapore. and since you are not allowed to check in til 6am for your qantas flight, you are kind of stranded in a way. there are two options like i mentioned earlier, you can either hang out at the airport. that's where you check in, in the terminal where theres nothing open at that time apart from a few airline counters and wait til 6. the second option is to leave your bags at left luggage and grab a taxi down to town(somerset/orchard road/clark quay). you can try the mrt train as well but im not sure what time the last train is. if there are 3 kids and 2 adults, you can very well fit into a normal taxi instead of hiring the bigger one. a normal taxi is about $25+/- into town with the surcharge after midnight. i gather you arte leavign tonight. if its a weekend, it should be rather busy still in those places i mentioned earlier. everything will be fine! singapore is so small! lol!

oh there really no point getting a hotel room unless your like really really knackered cos hotels in singapore arent exactly cheap either!

Travel Tips for Singapore

You can see a lot of monuments in Singapore.

by RoseAmano

When we walk around the Singapore city, we can see a lot of monuments and these pleased our eyes. Especially at Bout Quey, we saw some monuments which was interested and sometimes we droped into deep thought about Singapore history.

Hindu temple in Chinatown

by yatingchen

In Singapore Chinese, Malay and Indian people live peacefully together. Although Chinatown is Chinese inhabitant area, some Indians live there as well, for example the Hindu temple is the symbol. The Hindu temple is actually the oldest one in Singapore because Singaporan Indians' origin was also from Chinatown region.

It's interesting to see that obivously red strips with lucky words (Chinese tradition for the lunar new year) were hung on the Hindu temple gates.

If you are not the local Indians, you have to pay for entrance.

Where most Singaporeans live

by biawak

Average Singaporeans live in these goverment apartment buildings. Most of the affordable apartments are in the "suburbs", outside the busy city. The price of homes and apartments in the city is astronomical.

Bring a Universal Adaptor

by litekimchi

Singapore uses a 220V/50Hz 3-pin socket platform. It will be helpful to bring a universal adaptor to make it easy for you to recharge your batteries.

In any case, all hotels have a 110-220V 2-pin shaver socket.

Animal Resort: See Animals for Free

by Aidy_p

If your stay in Singapore is much longer than just a couple of days, you can try to make your way to the east of Singapore where the Animal Resort is.

Tucked away in the fast disappearing farm area, the Animal Resort allows you to get up close with animals without the need to pay any entrance fee. All they ask for is that we buy food from them so that we can feed the animals, and this is also optional.

There's pet grooming, sale of cats and dogs, and even retired animals like horses, goats, peacocks and many more.

Many Singaporeans are brought up in the "concrete juncle", and do not have much contact with animals. So this is the opportunity.
