Popular with the expatriate community during its heyday, the once-beautiful and charming hotel has since fallen into disrepair. This set was taken a few years ago, when the hotel ceased to function but with the pub still operating (yay!). Last I heard, the pub has closed also (dang). The place is sitting on prime land, just a stone's throw away from Orchard Road, Singapore's main shopping district. The owners refuse to move away. Some family dispute over ownership, I think?
