Hotel Grand Central is highly recommendable, even to small family like ours.”
This hotel is very location wise. Its very near to orchard road, dhoby ghaut, bus stops, and shops. Despite being near to orchard, their hotel is very conducive to rest in. The staffs are very accommodating and assisting. They even help us weigh our luggage when we asked them to. Some reviews suggests that their rooms are small, but for tourist like us that only stays in the hotel to rest, the room space is fair enough. Its not really that small. The room is cleaned in a daily basis even if we do not ask them to. They always make sure that when we come back to our room, we will feel relaxed from a day of tour. One of their deal breakers is their built-in water dispenser. Especially to us, we need to make sure we have enough drinking water since we have kids. The only problem is their personal fridge which is not quite cold. But overall, our stay in Hotel Grand Central is very great. We will definitely book here again when we go back to Singapore.
Superb hotel! ”
Booked Hotel Grand Central having seen that it was situated on Orchard road itself. Was a little worried since majority of the reviews were not too good. I must say that I was beyond satisfied with my stay. The staff were very efficient and accomadating. The rooms were small but spacious and very clean. The beds were super comfy. The breakfast was tasty and filling. The location is extremely convinient with all the malls just walkong distance away. The small restauranfs right opposite the hotel have some of the tastiest street food ive ever had. Overall, I had a fantastic 4 night stay and would certainly stay here the next time I'm in Singapore. Keep up the great work Hotel Grand Central!
Grand Central scores exceptionally well on location. It's within walking distance for both Dhoby Ghaut & Somerset MRT stations. That also means is very close to all the malls on Orchard road. The Uber/Grab drivers also know the hotel and have no problems locating it. The rooms are pretty good and modern. The in-room water filter was a very very good feature - we didn't have to bother about buying drinking water throughout out Singapore trip. The swimming pool was also nice with a separate one for kids. We really loved our stay at Grand Central - highly recommended.
It was a very nice place.. @ Orchard.. near for everything... Mall, food stalls, train stations... all the staff are very accommodating.. place and rooms are neat and clean... nice pool (my kids love the pool).. we stay there for 5 days and it was worth it. i will recommend Grand Central Hotel to my relatives and Friends.. if i will visit Singapore again i will surely book again in your Hotel... thanks for accommodating specially Ms. April... thanks
A gem near Orchard Road shopping district”
As always, whenever I travel for long period for work to Singapore, I will bring along my family and stay at Hotel Grand Central. It is a gem... good price for Singapore standard, great location just off Orchard Road, good facilities with rooftop pool and gym and great caring staff.
At the heart of Singapore & Orchard Road”
For a business traveller aiming for a short stay or a couple here in Singapore for a short romantic getaway, this is a perfectly located business hotel which promises much comfort, convenience for a great price. You are literally minutes away from any central business office building via taxi or subway and the room is small but comfortable and well-kept. A great selection of Chinese, Korean, Japanese and Western cuisines are nearby while you are in the middle of Singapore's famous Orchard shopping belt.
Exceptional comfort 2nights stay ever”
I came for an important exam and was staying in this hotel due to the perfect location (3mins walking distance to exam venue), at first I was hesitate to book this hotel because of the picture of the hotel building looks abit old, BUT surprisingly the interior is so NEW, CLEAN and WELL maintained! According to the receptionist from lobby, this hotel had just done renovation and that’s why the interior so clean and new. I stayed at the 10th floor and the room was so cozy and well equipped with everything, even with a modern tech water dispenser! The cleaner is so friendly and she help me tidy every single corner. The price is affordable with such good location (1min walking to lotsa of shopping malls in orchard road) and friendly service. Totally worth it! Will sure come back again when come to Singapore and will sure recommend to my friends!
Will be back again soon!”
Location is close with Orchard. Very close to orchard central and somerset. For the price (less than 150 sgd, it’s really a good deal. They provide you with no limit drinking water from water dispenser (cold, hot or room temperature water), provide dilmah tea for some, coffee and they have very complete toiletries (tooth brush, paste, cotton, comb, cotton bud, cotton, soap bar, shower gel and conditioner. Have hairdryer also in room. For shower room it’s a bit cramped if you have big or tall posture. Their staffs are kind, house keeping and especially the uncle who takes care our luggage at the concierge. The front desk service just ok. But, from 11 pm to 4 am there is club house across the street and the music was so loud, but since i stayed at higher level it didn’t bother me much (better ask for higher level. Over all this is really good hotel.
Valuable, worth the price, strategic locations, clean”
I have been the customer of this hotel from around 2004, back then when the hotel was still kind of 2 stars hotel. Now it has upgraded and improved every single aspect and what makes a plus factor is the price is very affordable - if we consider the location: Orchard Rd (only 300 m from Somerset MRT and 300 m from Dhoby Ghout MRT) I got around 130 SGD for my last visit, which I think it was very cheap compared with other hotels around Orchard, even with the smaller room hotel. Another advantage is the room is quite big and clean. I don't try the breakfast since I am not a morning person. Overall, this is my first choice to stay when I want to stay around Orchard.
This hotel is in the best location if you want to be near Orchard Road. It was right in the middle of orchard road but slightly further back so its away from the noisy busy streets of orchard road. Right in front of the hotel is a great little side street which is open all day and all night serving fresh seafood, satay skewers, hainan chicken rice and a lot of other yummy things for a cheap price. The hotel was very clean, and our room was perfect. we were on the top floor so the room was very quiet. the hotel lobby staff were amazing also. We had the best stay there and would definately stay again.
A good hotel in an excellent location”
We, a young family with children, stayed at the Hotel Grand Central for 3 nights. The location is excellent, the facility around the area is very good, there's a laundromat (Ozone Wash & Dry) just outside the front of the hotel, some eateries which opened till very late (1:00AM?) and some very good western/mixed cultural foods all around. 313 @ Somerset, Plaza Singapura all within walking distance. Will definitely stay here again if we are around town.
Convenient location, value for money”
The hotel is conveniently located within 3 bus stops, 2 MRT stations, and of course Orchard Road, thus saving you a lot of time going around Singapore. There's also a cheap food court right across. Booked a triple room with 3 single beds, room looked newly renovated though the building was old. The room was kept clean and towels were changed. A water dispenser was provided which saved us money though the cold water comes out in room temperature. Staff were friendly and allowed us to leave our luggage after checkout so we can roam around before our flight. Will love to stay again.
Neat / Tidy / Great Location”
Old reviews do not do this hotel justice. Since it's been refurbished the rooms are now neat, comfortable and very clean. Rooms are not the biggest but adequate for one or two persons. Good for a business stop over (not a romantic or family visit) You are on the doorstep of Orchard road which is perfect. The usual hotels I use in the same area were more than double the price so I believe this hotel is great value for what you get. Staff went out of their way to be helpful and checking in and out was done quickly and efficiently.
Great hotel ”
Great location, almost on Orchard Road, the road you wouldn't want to miss when in Singapore. Also very close to the Somerset MRT station. No need breakfast at the hotel because all kinds of eating places are just steps away. The room is a little compact but very clean and love the idea of having a hot/cold water dispenser in your own room. The bed is very comfortable and there is a swimming pool and gym if you are an exercise nut like ourselves. The staff needs special mention as they were extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you. We had a great stay and will be back.
Great Hotel at the Centre of Singapore”
Grand Central is Great Hotel at the Centre of Singapore. Make it easier and closer to go around the city. Everything was good when stay at Grand Central. Keep the good work
Ok for a quick stopover”
Staff was attentive, rooms are pretty small, can't open a window, felt a bit claustrophobic, but that is a negative with many hotels in Singapore. Hotel could do way better with a bit more TLC in the hallways, a little freshup of colours and general cleaning of the bathrooms (not just the everyday stuff). 24 check-in worked very well for us. Location was great for shopping on Orchard Rd, if you like shopping. Considering other experiences in Singapore, the hotel is ok for the price. The pool is great and the kids pool is actually pretty good with it's 40cm depth. There is some streetfood available just outside the hotel, Starbucks and other well known restaurants/cafes are just 3 mins walking distance away. Took us 20 mins with pram to walk to Chinatown. So, if you don't want to pay for a highend hotel in Singapore and need a convenient place to stay, this one is ok and won't break the bank.
We arrived at 9:30am at the hotel. As I was in a leg cast that time, the hotel was kind enough to allow us a very early check-in so that I could rest. I was very relieved indeed. Inside the room, there’s a water dispense for both hot & cold water. We like that the hot water button has a safety feature preventing children from accidentally getting burnt. The room is okay for two travelers. We requested a bath tub. Downside of that is that the bath tub is not separate from the shower area. Being an short Asian, getting in & out of the bath/tub was challenging as it was a bit high. Good thing there are handicap rails on both sides. The free breakfast is standard. We had it for two days & the menu didn’t change much except the noodles & sausage. It’s easy to take a Grab or cab from this hotel. The hotel is also near The Centrepoint mall which has an MRT station below. The Centrepoint is directly across The Orchard Central as well from which you can take the MRT. Across the hotel is a small hawker place if you’re craving for food after dinner. All in all, we had a nice experience. It’s definitely a place to consider if you’re in Singapore.
Newly refurbished hotel that makes sense for the business or shopping traveller. Within walking distance of Somerset MRT and OrchardCentral/Orchard 313, it's convenient to get around and there's plenty of great food to be had at Orchard Central. Also very close to starbucks, dean and deluca if you need coffee, and walkable to Orchard Road itself. Fabulous foot massage Natureland hidden also within 5 minutes walking distance.
Great location, great hotel but prepare for noise”
We stayed for 3 nights. Hotel centrally located in orchard metres from centrepoint paragon etc. we found rooms have very thin walls and doors and ceiling maybe? We can hear charters outside the door every morning with tourists conversations. Our room was near the lift. Maybe opt for one further down. Water dispenser for hot water is handy to have in the room instead of kettle. We could also hear the bedroom a floor up. Maybe young children bouncing or jumping. Just be ready for noise at night. If you’re a light sleeper, I won’t recommend. Hotel room is small and bathroom small but good price for location. Staff always have a smile! Thank you
An old gem in Orchard...”
This is an old hotel but refurbished nicely. If you like older hotel room layout, you will not be disappointed. The room is big for this price range and the location is excellent. it is a stroll to major Orchard Road shopping malls and it even has a rooftop swimming pool. I would say excellent in terms of value for money.
Dear Yatsan; Thank you for your recent stay with us. We appreciate your feedback and had taken note of your comments. We look forward to be of service to you in the not-too-long future. Regards Bobby Chng Hotel Manager
