Overall experience:

I'm really glad to experienced staying with Holiday Inn Express Orchard Road. The room itself may seem pretty basic but if you intend to spend most of your day exploring the city, the hotel room is more than sufficient. It is perfect for singles and couples coming to town. For the accommodation quality and location though, it's seriously good value. 

As a stayca option, it's pretty cool and comfy too. I don't mind coming back to the hotel with my friend and continue playing our Overcook game on Nintendo Switch.

 Room rates start from S$228++ for a one night's stay in a Queen standard. Reservations can be made by visiting, calling +6690 3199, or emailing
