Where to stay - Singapore

Hotel Jen Orchardgateway by Shangri-La

Overlooking the city and located in the heart of Orchard Road, the Hotel Jen provides an ideal location to its clients. Shopping malls and restaurants are in numbers right at your doorstep and the establishment offers a direct access to public transport (MRT Somerset station).

The Hotel proposes a large range of services and facilities such as a 24-hour room service, a 24-hour gym and an awarded rooftop infinity pool with spectacular city views. This pool has very convenient opening hours, from 6am to 11pm, allowing you to enjoy panoramic sunrises and sunsets. During the day you can lay back in a sunbed, drink a cocktail, relax in the blue water and even get a massage in a poolside cabana. What more could you ask for?

With its multicultural heritage and melting pot of delicious dishes, Singapore is like no other place for food lovers and the Hotel Jen restaurant blends local specialities with international classics to keep you satisfied all day long. Seeking for cold beers, juices or sodas? You will find it whether in the Lounge on the 10th floor or at BayWatch on the rooftop.

During my stay at Jen, I stayed in a Club Room, which offers an exclusive access to the Club Lounge and to me this is a real asset for several reasons. First of all, you can check-in and check-out directly in the lounge and therefore skip waiting time at the hotel lobby. Then, you are offer non alcoholic beverages and snacks 24/7 and alcoholic beverages from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Finally, you will access to an exclusive and special breakfast buffet. Salty or sweet, everyone will find its pleasure with an assortment of pastries, pancakes, cereals, cheeses, noodles and many more as well as a chef preparing eggs of your choice.

The room is spacious, comfortable and modern with a super comfy king-sized bed and a smart en-suite bathroom with shower. The key point of the room is the sofa below the large window with a spectacular view of Singapore. There, you will be able to work during the day and to read a book while enjoying the twinkling of the city’s light during the evening.

Something that triggered my interest and that I can only recommend trying is to call the reception and ask them to bring something to your room. I asked for adaptors and you will never believe who delivered it to the room… A ROBOT!! Unbelievable right? Yet, true! Indeed, the hotel has a little helper named Jeno, which delivers objects and food to your bedroom and it is quite funny and impressive to see it mooving in the corridors, taking the elevator, ringing to your door and talking to you! Ahhh Singapore, you will never come to the end of amazing me!

In my opinion, the Hotel Jen Orchardgetway is perfectly designed for for urban explorers, worldly adventurers and modern business travellers!
