I was welcomed by a very clean and spacious entrance when I arrived at the hotel.
Simplicity & Clean is the way to go!
 
 
 
At the hotel lobby I was also welcomed by the friendly hotel staff who addressed to my needs and brought me around the hotel with various facilities. From the above picture.. it seemed pretty crowded and happening.. but everything was very managed and not in a chaos.
 
 
 
 
Upon entering the room at level 14.. it was very refreshing to see the room with white clean Queen-sized bed and colours that are pleasing to the eyes.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I can choose between Soft or Firm pillow!
Feelin' so pampered.. but its really thoughtful of the hotel to have these options for us! :)
 
 
 
Telephone, notepad and iHome iPod docking station which serves as an alarm clock for you as well!
Everything is made so simple and easy for your use.
 
 

Big 32-inch LED TV with an International selection of entertainment channels.
I watched soccer with this on the 2nd night.. they have Sports Channel! Shiok~!







Basic Coffee/Tea making area with Kettle.. and also mineral water which are very important to have in the hotel.

 

Ergonmic working desk with comfortable swivel chair.

 

Comfortable relaxing chair where I just sat there, put my legs up and surf the Internet/Instagram with my phone! The Free High-speed WiFi was really strong and stable! Oh ya.. my Instagram is @shaunowyeong, do follow me if you have not! Lol~!
 
 

Very neat wardrobe that even comes with an ironing board and iron.
In-room safe and mini fridge are also in the wardrobe for your use.

 
 
Clean and tidy toilet which has all the basic needs which you would require.
The idea is to be SMART, having only those that you need.
 
 

 
Standing shower cubicle with liquid shower soap.
 
 
A view of the outside from my room.. overlooking the buildings along Orchard Road.
 
 

Compact meeting room (up to 12 persons) at Level 4 that is inclusive of:

Gym also at the Level 4 which has all the equipments that I need just to have a quick tone up of my body muscles.

Treadmills.
 
 
 
Mineral water and mini towels are provided. Thumbs up!

 

So here I am to prove my presence.. that I really did work out here! Lol~!
I had a good workout on the 2nd day in the afternoon.. felt so rejuvenated after a short training!
 
 

Self-service laundry room with 24-hour access to all the guests.

 
 
Vending machine for snacks & drinks which is also at the Laundry area @ Level 4.
 
 

Likewise for this Ice Dispenser.. also at the Laundry area.



GREAT ROOM is where you would have your breakfast and meal at the Holiday Inn Express!

 

Great Room - Free Breakfast

This is especially good for those in the rush but want a grab a quick bite along the way to where they are heading.. be it for work or heading to somewhere nice to catch the sunrise! ha..
 
 
 

This was my breakfast for day 2..
Simple yet fulfilling!
That is all I need! :)
 
 
 
Ending off here..
with the bright and clean entrance of the Holiday Inn Express Singapore Orchard Road!

It was truly a rewarding stay.. albeit it was a rainy season during my stay, it does not dampen my mood.. I hit the gym and use the WiFi to surf the net with my phone, and if I really wanna head out while its raining, I can borrow an umbrella at the reception counter at the lobby by placing a S$10 deposit, would be refunded upon returning the umbrella. The location of this hotel is extremely good, because it is located at the heart of Singapore. Everybody in Singapore knows where is Orchard Road.. Its a shopping paradise to all.. along the entire stretch of Orchard Road - some of the big malls are like the Ngee Ann City Takashimaya, Wisma Atria, Far East Plaza where there are hip stuffs for the youngsters, likewise for SCAPE & Cine Leisure for the youngsters as well. There are Cinemas at the Cine Leisure as well.. you can catch a movie anytime at the theatres. Other popular malls are 313@Somerset and Orchard Central. Nearest train stations are Somerset and Orchard MRT Stations which can bring you anywhere - Very convenient! :)
