“Fantastic hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2012

My family of four stayed at the York Hotel for six nights on our first visit to Singapore. The hotel was fantastic, very clean, friendly staff and excellent food at the hotel restaurant. The location was great too with only a 5 min walk to Orchard Road and many shopping malls very close. Our room was lovely and rather huge (approx 50m2) which made our stay in Singapore all the more enjoyable. Love it!

Room Tip: Corner rooms are very spacious.

My daughter and I spent 9 days in Singapore. The hotel was clean, staff were friendly, breakfast was enjoyable. The only downside was the shower located over the 175 cm high bathtub. No trouble for the young and active but for this 86 year old it was a misery trying to hoist myself in and out of the tub. It was a 10 minute walk to Orchard Road but in Singapore's heat and humidity it felt more like a 30 minute walk. The restaurant was well-run and the range of food was very good. The restaurant staff were helpful and very friendly. Paying for wi-fi was irritating and the hotel would win friends if the fee were abolished. The included breakfast had a wide range of food and beverages, all fresh and enjoyable.

Room Tip: Our room on the 11th floor was quiet, good views.

In July wife and I spent 6 nights at this hotel and value for money it was good. We are often in Singapore and I would rate this hotel as excellent for family or senior couple.It was clean, efficient and the staff were friendly and obliging. You must ask for an refurbished room to get more acceptable accommodation as the hotel is refurbishing its rooms and there are some that have not been completed. Excellent location for shopping on Orchard, near Paragon and Lucky Plaza, two good shopping areas.Our children live in Singapore at Mt Elizabeth and grandchildren were delighted with the pool.

Room Tip: Ask for refurbished room and always inspect before taking the room offered.They are happy to do this...

My family and I spent 3nights at the York Hotel, location was good with only a short walk to orchard road and the MRT station. Breakfast was rather expensive so we dined at McDonalds most mornings for a fraction of the cost which is situated in one of the malls just 5min walk.

Rooms very spacious and we had 2 large king beds in our room, large enough to sleep our family of four. A bit of construction work happening next door but nothing to worry about. The pool is small but adequate for a swim on a hot afternoon. Towels provided poolside.

Staff seemed friendly, other than check in didnt really have much contact with any other staff. Hotel seemed quite busy and people were coming and going in reception.

The walk from Orchard Rd to Hotel is slightly up hill but nothing anyone with minimum fitness levels wouldnt be able to handle!

Only thing that was a downer about the place it didnt provide any blowdryers so if you cant live without one bring your own!

We paid SGD$170 per night, which is by far the cheapest we could find among Orchard-vicinity hotels. The hotel itself is your typical 3-4 star Singaporean hotel - clean, practical, and decently equipped with the usual amenities (pool, gym, business center, etc).

The major plus is the location. It's a 5 minute walk to Paragon, without having to cross too many roads, and 10-12 minutes to the Orchard MRT (ION), if you cut through Far East Plaza to the underpass in front of Scotts Square.

I find the hotel very pleasantly adequate for our needs, which is basically as a place to hit the gym, or crash for the night. Staff is courteous, and polite, and no complaints about housekeeping at all. Rooms are a bit old and tired, but then, if you're looking for luxurious accommodation on Orchard, then feel free to splurge the extra $200 or so, and stay in the Marriot.

I did so much research on our Singapore hotel...wanted something affordable, close to ION and Orchard Rd shopping, a room big enough for our family of 4 including 2 teenagers and at least 4 star. The York was all of these, great price including pretty good buffet breakfast, 5-10 minute walk to ION down Scotts Rd and very close to Far East plaza with it's cheap teenager shops and shoes, the family premier room was fantastic - huge modern room, no traffic noise and the best super king bed and quality bedlinen plus 2 singles. Bathroom was small but nice. The pool area was lovely and the staff were great, happy to give us a couple of extra hours in our room for our late flight. So if you need to keep the cost down a little and don't mind a short walk this is a great 4 star choice.

Room Tip: Premier family rooms, great choice for families with older kids
