Enjoy the Singapore Skyline at Hotel Jen Orchardgateway
Hotel Jen Orchardgateway is a friendly, fresh and fuss free mid range hotel created by the Shangri-La group, thriving loud and proud in Singapore since 15 September 2014.
We stayed at Hotel Jen during our 3 days stay in Singapore.
BUT WHO IS JEN?
The Jen brand is based on the virtual personal “Jen”: a professional hotelier and all time lover of life, travel and discovery.
Jen wanted a Chinese name to reflect this and Jin (meaning ‘today’) is about the importance of living every day to its fullest and in the moment. We like this idea!
HOTEL JEN: WOW, WHAT A VIEW!
Hotel Jen is centrally located directly above Orchardgateway – one of Singapore’s newest shopping malls and above the Somerset MRT station.
It is 19km from Singapore Changi International Airport and around 35 minutes on the MRT. There’s a direct lift access from the hotel lobby to Somerset MRT station.
The location of Hotel Jen above Orchardgateway mall and the Somerset MRT means it has some incredible views across the city.
OUR ROOM AT HOTEL JEN
Our room was on the 20th floor and the first thing you fall in love with is the view. Imagine waking up to this every morning…
The rooms are tastefully decorated, with really comfortable large bed and power shower with modern comforts like air con and flat screen TV.
Jen is certainly hardworking: she’s clearly put a lot of effort in decorating her rooms and boy do they look cool!
RELAXATION AND EXERCISING WITH JEN
Jen has gone to a lot of effort to ensure relaxation seekers and fitness gym bunnies are both satisfied.
The pool area is incredible! The pool itself is great for morning laps and also has a Jacuzzi. The surrounding area is also great for pool parties or just relaxing.
Oh and did we mention the view already? Just in case you missed it, here it is again from the pool:
The gym is small but functional with both cardiovascular machines and a variety of free weights.
SOCIALISE WITH A GLASS OF WINE AT THE CLUB LOUNGE
The Club Lounge is a lavish affair with breakfast available in the morning, tea/coffee, snacks throughout the day and a delicious buffet dinner in the evening, with free flowing wine and alcohol.
It’s a great place to meet and socialise with other guests. It is also perfect for working, particularly with the free high speed WiFi available.
And that view…
