Although strategically located in amongst the hustle and bustle of Singapore, our Hotel in Orchard Road maintains an air of privacy and exclusivity.
A dynamic city rich in contrast and colour, in Singapore you’ll find a harmonious blend of culture, cuisine, arts and architecture. Staying at Concorde Hotel Singapore throws you into the midst of modern beauty. Leaving our convenient Hotel in Orchard Road will offer a journey into the best of Southeast Asia, with the chance to discover serene gardens, sleek skyscrapers, and more.
As the centre of Singapore, our hotel in Orchard Road is easy to get to. With around four million passengers per year arriving through Changi International Airport, there are multiple ways to get here from the airport.
Visas are not required to enter Singapore for citizens of the USA, EU and Commonwealth countries.
If you are arriving by car, drive along Orchard Road and use the left lane to turn left onto Buyong Road (the traffic junction next to Concorde Hotel Singapore). Then in 80 metres, turn left onto Kramat Lane. Our hotel lobby and carpark are accessible via Kramat Lane.
Amidst narrow streets dotted with restaurants and picturesque shophouses; temple idol carvers, herbalists, calligraphers, traders and trishaw drivers pursue a way of life that has changed little through the generations. Chinatown is indeed a kaleidoscope of sights and sounds, where the fragrance of incense from an ancient temple might greet you and where your feet may inevitably be escorted through paths where people still sell their wares on the pavement and ‘sea cucumbers’ (a local delicacy) are still sun dried. Chinatown is your quick rendezvous with nostalgia in this dynamic modern city by the name of Singapore!
Although much of Chinatown has recently been renovated, the old traditions endure. A walk around the streets of Tanjong Pagar reveals local craftsmen at work making kites, clogs, and traditional seals for stamping documents. Especially during Chinese New Year, the whole of Chinatown is lit up and buzzes with activity as stalls sell a variety of festive goods.
Singapore Botanic Gardens is the place to visit if you are looking for a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located just outside Orchard Road, you can find the National Orchid Garden – the world’s largest orchid display featuring over 60,000 plants and orchids, the Ginger Garden, and many other floral attractions in these gardens.
