Mandarin Orchard Singapore (5*)

I stayed in this hotel for my short getaway on my birthday. It was quite sudden trip as I was at first not that enthusiastic to celebrate my birthday. But, I did really need to escape from this city :). Also I remembered that I had Kris Flyer mileage that would expire soon if I did not use it and no longer be able to be extended (again).

So, I booked a flight by redeeming my Kris Flyer mileage and searched hotel via Agoda in Orchard area as I did only want to window-shop (the plan … lol). Then, I chosen this Mandarin Orchard (this was my second stay in this hotel). This hotel is actually  a little bit old building, but most hotels in Orchard area are quite old I think, some got renovated but mostly not the whole building or refurbished.

The best thing about this hotel is its location; it’s in the heart of Orchard road. Shopping malls are within walking distance. Mandarin Gallery at its doorstep, right next to 313@Somerset, Ngee Ann City and Takashimaya, and across the hotel is the Paragon. Then, closed to MRT station; there are two MRT stations located less than 10 minutes walking, which are Orchard and Somerset. Also it is easy to get food around here. If you do not want to dine in the mall’s foodcourt or restaurants, there are many simple/small restaurants near hotel, as well as upscale restaurants.

And, as it was my birthday, I got a surprise birthday cake from the hotel along with “happy birthday” note. That was the most wonderful treatment I ever received, and I was happily surprised :).

Considering its location and compare to other hotels in this area, I think Mandarin Orchard offers good rate. If you are planning to travel to Singapore and looking for accommodation, I recommend you to check their best rate out via Agoda.com or you may compare the rate at Booking.com.
