Yotel Singapore, Orchard Rd

A tall, skinny and sleek skyscraper in the heart of Singapore, the Yotel is a good value place to kip in the Orchard Road district. If the room is ready, Yotel will let you check-in in the morning - very handy if you have come in on an over-night flight from Europe. On the higher levels, there are fine views (pictured above and below) over the city-state from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the en-suite bathrooms, which have soothing rain showers. Known as cabins, the standard rooms are compact, but high-tech and cunningly-designed to make good use of the space - the safe is hidden in the draw, while the double bed can be folded upwards to create more space. There is free bottled water, an iron and iron board, the WiFi is quick and the quiet air-con works well, but there is no room service and the in-house restaurant is a tad pricey. 7/10
