The Copthorne Orchid Hotel Singapore is not located well for a hotel. It is quite far from any MRT (subway) station, and is situated amidst high-end residences in the Bukit Timah area. It is actually more of a 3-4 star rating. The saving grace is that guests can make use of the hotel’s shuttle bus service to take them to Orchard Road, the shopping district of Singapore. Because there may be waiting time involved, be prepared to take a taxi wherever you go, especially if you have a 4-member party. If you are a solo traveler, it may be more economical to figure out the routes of the public buses as many of them go to Orchard as well.
The rooms of the the Copthorne Orchid Hotel may be a little outdated, but it offers the basic amenities. There is also an outdoor swimming pool and a gymnasium. This is not the best hotel to discover Singapore’s sights. If you would like affordable local food, you can take a public bus a few stops along Bukit Timah Road to the Adam Road Food Centre. The Botanical Gardens is also a short walk away.
In conclusion, if it is your first time to Singapore and you wish to explore as many things as possible, the Copthorne Orchid Hotel Singapore should only be booked at a bargain price.
