The Place Right smacked in town, the brand new hotel Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore promises its guests a truly unique experience. From its awesome location, to the already making waves roof-top pool (with views of the Singapore skyline), to the chill-lax vibe across the hotel; this new baby of the Shangri-la Group brings a new “Jen-re” into the world of hospitality.
Hotel Jen Orchardgateway Singapore, the first amongst the Jens which will start “invading” the world, opened in Singapore back in September 2014 and theRantingPanda team went a little gaga over it in our earlier article – “the Jen has arrived“. Even during a less than perfect weather, with stormy clouds approaching during our visit to the roof top pool, relaxing amidst the busy crowd in the shopping streets and buzzing malls – life’s almost perfect.
Arrive at the lobby with a self-service welcome drink, finally a welcome drink that is not just to welcome you when you check-in, but for the every occasion you return to the hotel! fyi, we spotted someone filling up her bottle full of the complimentary ice-tea!
And if you need the computer urgently to google your next destination or charge your almost-flat handphones, Hotel Jen will come to your rescue! Conveniently located at the hotel lobby, these workstations and powerstations adds on the the usual perks of a hotel stay; now that’s what tRP reckons is the Jen-erous privileges!
At Hotel Jen, the rooms are well designed despite the smaller than usual room size. Adopting a more chill-lax look, the blend of wood features, together with brown marble tiles and the mix of white and grey walls, this space makes you feel very much at home!
Warning to the shy folks, the toilet is designed in an open concept style with glass doors. But be rest assured, the Jen-erals behind the hotel has made darn sure the glass panels are opaque beyond the levels of “decency”. So, don’t be worried about it at all!
Now now, back to the pool that got me excited about the hotel months back – the rooftop pool! It ain’t at 200 meters (in reference to the other now world acclaimed integrated hotel – at the right of the picture), but the view you will enjoy at Hotel Jen’s pool is nothing short of ‘wow’!
Jacuzzi to Childrens’ Pool to “Sun-down” parties, can this roof get any hipper?!
Any fitness junkies and guilty souls will find comfort in the gym at Jen. Good sized gym, with an outdoor garden space as well. Yoga anyone?
Unwind at the Lounge@Jen with a splendid view of Orchard Road, without having to “suffer” through the hectic crowd right below!
While a tall building in the midst of the shopping district, Hotel Jen seeks to infuse green spaces within the hotel – with a total of 3 sky gardens around the hotel. The generous space and tranquility surrounding the hotel amenities makes Jen a sanctuary within the busy Orchard district!
Well, the food at every hotel is definitely one of the elements we much look forward to in every visit! We have previously reviewed the weekend buffet in our earlier article at Makan@Jen, and we have to give their breakfast buffet our thumbs up as well!
Open concept kitchen readily refilling the spreads almost instantaneously, with live stations such as eggs and local noodles – now, that’s what we will deem good service and breakfast!
Whether you are looking for a staycation or if you are travelling to Singapore, Hotel Jen offers great value. It’s location – perfect, it’s service – sincere, it’s rooms – Jen-erally comfy, it’s amenities – 9/10. There’s hardly anything bad about this new hotel, and if I must, the only complaint would be the crowd at the rooftop pool!
So for your next stay in Singapore, we would highly recommend getting that Jen-feeling!
