“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

The location is very good, it is next to the CC2 Exit.

The ROOM is clean and big for family of four (but there is no bathtub). (after renovation). The upper floor is still renovating, and there is a construction beside the hotel. Therefore sometimes, it is a bit noisy. And there is an food court around the corner which is convenience for most of us. There are many museum around this area.

The staffs are very friendly, I asked them how can I reach those attractions. They provided me detail information.

It will come with free Set of Breakfast for each person, but it is good enough for my family

Stayed at this hotel for 1 night with friends. It was a last minute booking and we got a room with twin beds, breakfast included, for S$150 (this includes taxes).

The hotel is very outdated. The room was spacious compared to other budget hotels but everything about it is old, including the smell. The fridge was empty and there was no free bottled drinking water. There are only 2 sockets (1 beside the television, another was where the safety deposit box was plugged - we had to remove the plug so we can charge our phone). The bathroom had a tub with a broken drain, there was no tissue rolls, and the only soap you can use was at the dispenser on the wall.

For breakfast, they served 2 sausages, 2 eggs, and a hashbrown. They had a bar with bread, spicy noodles, french toast, fruits, cereals, coffee, and milk. Normal to find at a budget hotel.

Location was great. A few minute walk to the MRT (Circle/Yellow line) and a 24-hour "Kopitiam" (not all food stalls are open 24 hours).

If you plan to be out exploring the city all day, this would be a good place to stay. But for those who plan to have a staycation, choose a different hotel.

Note: They are currently renovating the hotel (7th floor, I think) and they are also right beside a construction for a new MRT.

Arrived early in the hotel (9:00 AM) and were told that our room is ready if we want to check-in. The family room was massive with two queen size beds and one single bed with a table and chairs to sit and eat our take away comfortably and a safe deposit box. The room was newly refurbished and it was very clean and neat. The domestics also comes daily to clean and supply us with tasty 3 in 1 coffee and tea. disposable toothbrushes with toothpaste and towels who were very lovely. They don't however need to check our supply of shower gel and liquid soap for we had enough for our five days stay.
The negative comment I have is that the hotel does not have wheelchair access thus the inconvenience when I decided to rent a wheelchair for my mother. There was also a limited wifi in our room 251 which was indeed very limited.

Arrived too early (7:00 am) but allowed to check-in 7:30 with no extra charge. Normal check-in time is 12:00-2:00pm. Stayed for 6 nights in a spacious family room #408 of two queensize beds with sofa, side tables and a safe deposit box. Shower room with bath tub though there is a liquid soap you have to buy soap and shampoo from the store. Fresh bedsheets and linens everyday. A supply of coffee and tea sachets but no mineral water.Kopitiam and 7-eleven opens 24hrs right in the corner of the street. Walking distance to The Cathay, Plaza Singapura,Bugis Junction and Raffles City. Nearest SMRT station ( Bras Bassah) is just a minute walk. Shopping malls located on the Orchard Road is just nearby. On going construction right infront of the hotel but did not hear any noise from inside our room which is also facing the site. Free breakfast with a choice of noodles, fruits, coffee and juices, toasted breads and jams, cornflakes and a plate of 2 sunny side up eggs with strips of bacons and beans and sausages alternately. There is no swimming pool in the hotel but who cares if you are only in the hotel to sleep and most of the day you are exploring Singapore.
It was a great stay in Strand. And definitely will stay again if ever we come back to Singapore. Highly recommendable.

Stayed here for four nights on a short holiday. The hotel is plain and comfortable but fairly spacious for a twin bed room. The hotel is a bit old and run down however as a base to come back to while out shopping it was perfectly fine. The shower was a bit annoying and not comfortable to use. However the air conditioning was surprisingly quiet and very easy to use! I would recommend this hotel if you have a quick stopover and want clean and comfortable, and will not be spending a lot of time in the room. Its located at the bottom of orchard road shopping strip, and has a 24 hour food court next door as well as a subway stop.

This hotel is in a great location - at the start of Orchid Rd, a few blocks from Raffels and a short walk to the Marina Bay area.
They are currently building a new MRT stop in the same street - which will only make things easier once completed but it is only a very short walk to the closest station. Also the hop on hop off buses can be caught just on the corner on Bras Basah Rd anyway.
The rooms are very clean and tidy and by Singapore standards for the price they charge - are large. It is a little old - but as we spent very little time in our hotel room anyway - this isn't an issue. The staff were very pleasant - the breakfast good but limited/

We would stay again on our next trip to Singapore without hesitation. Just a warning to those staying during the heat - this hotel doesn't have a pool.

Strand is well located , not far from MRT metro station or bus routes. It is a popular hotel, probably for its reasonable rates including breakfast with large enough rooms. Our room was overlooking the new construction site on bencoolen street, closed for that reason. Otherwise, Orchard st is just walking distance, the great Raffles Hotel is also walking distance and Little India just few bus stops away !
