Good Experience but slightly expensive
Reviewed 3 days ago

Good Experience at par with Singapore standards. Considering some of the other 4 star hotels in Singapore, this is slightly expensive and the services are not much different.
Breakfast could be better and they don't have enough staff at the reception to cater to your needs with quick response time but the staff is good.
Rooms are neat and tidy and spacious.
Overall, good experience.

Good location
Reviewed 4 days ago

This is a busy good value hotel well located for orchard road and botanic gardens. We are a family of four and the second interconnecting room was half price. The whole place has been renovated in a slightly weird eclectic style. Rooms are small but fine. Rooms with view of the nice pool Would be my pick. Breakfast buffet is included. This is nothing compared to 5 star hotels,but it’s ok. The coffee is from a machine rather than a waiter, much of the fruit is tinned, and there is little attention to detail. Check- in and out is slow.

3 night stay in Singapore
Reviewed 6 days ago

Our family of 4 stayed in Hotel Jen Tanglin in June 2018 as a stop over on the way to Australia for 3 days. We all loved the hotel. The food especially the breakfasts were super. Our 15 year old son ate chicken stir fry for breakfast- he doesnt get that in Ireland!! The hotel was clean, quiet at night and yet a short Uber ride to the centre of the city.

Great hotel and location
Reviewed 6 days ago

We had a great family holiday at Hotel Jen.
We were greeted by very friendly reception staff and were able to check in early (which was great after an overnight flight).
The pool area was very nice and didn’t get overly busy.
We stayed in a one bedroom suite which included access to the Club Lounge. This was great for a laid back breakfast and to have access to food and drinks at anytime was added bonus.
The hotel has a small shopping mall attached where there is a supermarket, pharmacy and other specialty shops. There is also a small food hall that sells very nice food (many options) for a very reasonable price.
Overall we would definitely stay at this hotel again. The location was good, a bit out of the centre but not too far.
