Came over to Singapore for the first time after many and many years under the invite of a
few old friend friends, George straight from Boston 7 and a half years ago, and Linus met in Hong Kong just a few years ago via some other Aussie friend. Scenario: they work together in Singapore now and due some corporate event over budget I find myself invited for a free holiday.
I decide to go low profile with accomodation in order to spend a bit more at the Orchard, every-shopaholic-paradise.
Here I am at the Link Hotel. Nice personnel, tidy ambient. A bit dated, needs revision.
My bathroom was smelling a bit mouldy.
Clean room. The fridge is not a fridge but a "chiller" - so forget cold water.
Good ratio price/service
Perfect location to get around cheaply both via cab and MRT.
Jolly: great quality mattresses, great naps!
