I've just added a handful of places in our new coverage for Orchard -- unless you want to go very upmarket, it is pretty slim pickings.
You can see the four places we do list here, but if you don't want to spend as much, perhaps consider lodging around the Little India area...
The YMCA-International House at 1 Orchard has a promo rate for Oct/Nov of
S$ 139.75++ for their family suite. The room has 3 or 4 beds so can easily accommodate your 5 people.
somtam - for the Sg Budget Room in your listing...any idea if it's legit? a similar place elsewhere has recently come under fire for contravening one or more of the millions of rules & regulations here that frown on such short term rental of space designated for residential use (which incl condominums). maybe that's why the place has no sign - to stay under the radar of the authorities ;)
Thanks for all the suggestions! I ended up booking us all into Holiday Inn Garden View. They were able to accommodate us all in one room. Not the cheapest about S$260 but includes breakfast for all and is in a good location, clean and nice looking
Thanks for help, cant wait to come to Singapore!

It's a bit fly by night but they're not keeping that low of a profile -- they're on all the hostel booking websites. There's no sign on the outside of the building but once you take the elevator up to the 3rd floor they have a sign, collection of tourist maps, business cards, etc.
The ground floor of the building is commercial, but the upper floors are residential (the "laundry service" is the condo coin-operated washing machine). It's a decently sized place with numerous bathrooms, a vending machine, etc. -- no way it's zoned as a personal residence.
as in, curious whether it might be a similar operation...not saying that it's one of the cases that has already made the news. (don't worry, i don't work for URA!)
yep...for past 30 years :P am much closer to sunrise :)
