“Smokers rooms available”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

York Hotel is situated close to Orchard Road and Scott Road. However also Singapore does not promote smoking, York Hotel has 2 floors with rooms for smokers (second and third floor). Early booking for such a room is necessary: many visitors like those rooms (no smell of smoking). York has all facilities for a four stars hotel, however the restaurant/bar is not really inviting (open, not cosy). Internet access is not free (cards for 2 hours and more available at the reception desk). American Club in Scott Road is at walking distance via rear entrance of the hotel along Goodwood Park Hotel. Orchard Road is well known for all the big shopping centres but also Scott Road has a lot of shops and restaurants.

Decent, clean hotel at reasonable price (if booked through independent web sites) in the Orchard Road area. Nothing spectacular but nothing wrong either. One big drawback is the lack of free wifi and the high cost of the internet. Short, 8 – 10 minute walk down the hill to Orchard Road shopping malls (Paragon, Lucky Plaza, and Ngee Ann City including Takashimaya department store and the huge Kinokuniya bookstore). It is also very convenient to Mount Elizabeth Hospital but be forewarned that if you are in Singapore for health reasons, access to hotel from the Hospital side requires climbing 12 – 15 steep steps with no ramp. During peak periods of check-out, there is also insufficient staff to help with luggage. But if you are hale and hearty, decent value.

We booked a four persons room and the room was indeed spacious. The service was poor at the reception with unfriendly staff and room service was poor too as we requested for toothbrush and have to wait for several hours although they said only few minutes. The hotel is very near to Orchard Road but after a long day walk you will feel tired to climb up the road to hotel. The bell boy just stood there and we have to open the main door ourselve.

This is a very different property, maybe 40 years old but refurbished. They have no bar really and you need to walk through the restaurant to get to some of the rooms. When I was there they had a Hawker Fair as part of the restaurant and the smell of the food was nauseating as you passed through the restaurant. The funny odors went up the elevator and even my room on the 9th floor had an unpleasant odor. The plus is that you can get a very good price on this and you are one minute from Orchard walking. There is also a great restaurant complex in the hotel just 30 meters away, they have a great steakhouse called the Gordon Grill, absolute world beater, best steak I have had in Asia, including Japan.
The hotel is best described as a Chinese 4 Star, lots of marble, big spaces and absolutely no charm or service. The people recognise you need help but are in slow motion, perhaps because of hours worked. Not Singaporean at all and I felt I had made a quick trip to Inland China or some of the dubious 4 Stars of Kuala Lumpur.
I had a suite which I would recommend with two families or family with older children. The pull out coach in a separate room and this is really hard to find in Singapore and at a price that was well below Singapore rates. They also have a great fitness club even though there were no towels until 30 minutes after they opened it and they saw I was there, too busy changing signs and trying to waste some time!
Could be so much better but then they would have to charge for it.

Room Tip: Suites are great value, huge and with two separate rooms.

We checked in for only one night but the staff member realised at check in it was my husband's birthday so upgraded us to this huge suite and gave us complimentary drinks and a fruit bowl!
The room was enormous so we felt the service was exceptional! The bathroom was well stocked & clean & the bed linen excellent.
The foyer is very small and awkward so was quite crowded when guests are waiting for taxis or to meet people but the floors were spacious and all very clean.
We very much enjoyed our stay and it was an easy walk to shops & restaurants.
