This hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Singapore and the rooms show it!
Our stay was in Aug 2012 and the check in was done very fast and efficiently! The reception staff was very friendly.
We were given a room on the 9th floor and the room was very disappointing. It badly needed refurbishing and the AC was not working well at all and there was also some sort of mold growing in places! When we complained we were speedily allocated another room on the 5Th Floor. This room was bigger with a small balcony but here again the room could use a face lift! But it was certainly better than the first room! The Balcony in room needed a coat of paint and some cleaning.
If the price was less then i would not have minded but we payed premium rates! We could have gotten a similar/ same rate for some of the newer hotels on Orchard Road.
Location wise this hotel is at one end of Orchard road (close to Ion shopping center).
Breakfast was very good at the hotel.. the service there once again was very good!
My personal opinion is that the hotel should refurbish all rooms to keep up with some of the better hotels in Singapore.

I was sorely disappointed with my stay here. If this hotel is less expensive than other hotels you’re considering, there is a reason – there is lack of security. I typically do not feel compelled to write reviews, but I wanted to warn travelers considering staying here that unless they want their belongings stolen from their room with little hotel management action in response, they should NOT stay here.

I stayed at the hotel with 4 other colleagues for a total of 5 nights, Thursday to Tuesday. Without going into too much detail, I discovered that a bag of jewelry from my room had gone missing (containing several antique pieces and family heirlooms passed down from my mother). I informed the front desk, and was told an investigation would ensue. After checking back with the front desk multiple times over the course of the next couple of days, I was told that the investigation was ongoing and I would not receive an update until the night before I was to leave the hotel. In addition, I expressed that I did not feel comfortable having maids come into my room since my belongings disappeared, and I was simply told to put the “Do Not Disturb Sign” outside my door to prevent someone from coming in – which gave me no comfort at all, knowing that someone had already violated my privacy and belongings.

I was frustrated that I was constantly told to check back and that the "investigation was continuing," but it turns out that because it was a weekend, the staff was off-duty, and therefore staff interviews could not be done. Anxious, I asked to speak with the security manager who was supposedly conducting the investigation (which was suspicious considering no one asked me anything about when and where the jewelry was discovered missing and what the contents of the jewelry bag was).

Finally, over 36 hours after I reported the missing jewelry, I was told by the manager that they interviewed the staff and concluded that the staff had an excellent record. This seemed a completely inadequate response. In addition, the security manager who I was supposed to meet with never showed up to meet with me. Frustrated with the inadequate response of hotel management, I called the police to file a report. It was only then that the hotel management decided to take this more seriously. With construction going on and maids leaving my balcony door unlocked, it felt unsafe and I believe my jewelry was taken due to negligence of the hotel, although no compensation was offered.

I have traveled extensively and stayed at many hotels throughout Asia (often with the guidance of Trip Advisor), yet never have I faced a situation like this. Yes things could've been a lot worse, and I never personally felt unsafe. As a frequent traveler, I take the necessary precautions and am careful with my things, locking my passport in the safe etc. I was so surprised that something like this could have happened at a reputable business hotel, but even more surprised with management’s inadequate response and poor handling of the situation.

Although Orchard Parade is a decent business hotel in terms of location and modern rooms, it is worth booking somewhere else, even if slightly more expensive – there are many options along Orchard Road and elsewhere – save yourself the heartache and hassle, and give yourself the peace of mind by staying at a more secure hotel.

Recently stayed there (last weekend). Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff is professional and courteous. I just can't understand why they can't offer free wifi to the guests when there are a lot of spots outside offering this and a lot of hotels nowadays offer this for guests. In this day and age, free wifi is the norm.

I had a great time in this hotel located on Orchard Road, which is a great place to be in Singapore with lots of shops, restaurants, etc. On check in I asked for a good room as it was my daughter's birthday and I was given a huge family room on the 4th floor with a balcony overlooking Orchard Road. The room was excellent - nice and cool, beds were very comfortable and shower was excellent. Note to maintenance crew - the air conditioning was a bit noisy! The breakfast was well worth the 20SGD with a great selection.

What made my stay so great was the customer service we received from Apple who with her own initiative arranged a compliemntary card, cuddly toy present and birthday cake for my daughter. This was fantastic and really made the day extra special. Thank you Apple and well done Orchard Parade for employing such a great person! Somewhere I will definitely return to

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade on check-in
