Marina bay sands hotel rooms have the most spectacular views in Singapore, I dare say! I took the photos with an iphone5 and they are not edited. If you are staying at MBS, upgrade to club floor to get breakfast, tea and cocktails at the Club on 57. Do remember to check the gym out while you are there too, as the views, especially at sunset, is simply stunning!
This prestigious hotel is perhaps the most famous one in Singapore and one of the most famous in the world. Designated as a National Monument in 1987, in its beginnings, 100 years ago, it was a modest bungalow with 10 rooms until they constructed the main building, which became a symbol of oriental opulence. In 1970, the Raffles was a forgotten relic and was even at the point of being demolished. Until it reopened in 1991, following a 160 million Singapore dollars' renovation. Today, it once again shines as the symbol of opulence it once was. The lobby is open to non-guests, so that in addition to visiting it, they can shop in its luxury boutiques, eat at its restaurant, or have a Singapore Sling at the Long Bar.
Victoria Hotel, in the words of a taxi driver: "10 years ago it was a good hotel." The phrase sums it up. Not a bad hotel, and, above all, is situated well and offers free WiFi, which are the two great things for a traveller. But something very strange was to have to get up to the rooms using the back door and it is tiny with few additional services. But hey, not a bad option, although it needs a pool with the stifling heat of Singapore.
Singapore is a very expensive city for backpackers, but there are certain areas that allows one to sleep, eat and survive on a tight budget. The hostel and Prince of Wales pub is a piece of Australia in Singapore, and because what they want is travelers to spend all their money drinking beer, accommodation is super cheap and even a double room is pretty good. Most nights there is live music in the pub and the atmosphere is very good, although very "Australian". The hostel is in the heart of Little India, where you can eat authentic Indian food for very cheap prices.
It is definitely not easy to find affordable hotels in Singapore, and less in the heart of the city. The N7S Hotel has 7 floors, as its name suggests, and is owned by a Chinese hotel, which has 2 floors with backpacker accommodation for less than 10 €, with A / C in rooms with 3 double bed. It is clean and safe, and next to the metro and buses going to the airport.
This is a very good option for cheap accommodation, a bit farther away from the center but close to Little India and the subway, with a hearty breakfast, coffee and tea, A / C, newspaper and free wireless internet for 8 euros. This place is 100% for backpackers who can share rooms and travel guides.
Situated in Little India, where most of the hotels and accomodations for backpackers are located, this hostel an expensive one but with very good quality. For just over 20 euros you get a shared room with air conditioning and breakfast included. The only downside I saw was that you had to pay for the ticket.
Enjoy fun rides, get close to sting rays and experience snorkeling with real marine fish in safe clear waters.
Snorkeling gear provided for swimming with fish. Experience is all day though they'll allow only a few people into the pool at a time so might have to q on a crowded day, but very worth the experience.
Entrance fee @ $29 (adults) or purchase an annual pass at just $88.
This luxurious hotel has a colonial air and provides the perfect spot for a stay in the area, being central and comfortable. I recommend it for couples and people traveling for business as it is near Clark Square, which has a great nightlife scene with clubs and bars. The service is attentive and efficient and the hotel has an air of luxury. The only disappointing thing was the price of the wi-fi (about 200 euros for two nights).
Built in 1928, this historic building was transformed into the luxurious The Fullerton Hotel Singapore in 2001. It has a great location in the center of the arts and business districts along the Singapore River. It is a 25 minutes' drive from Singapore Changi Airport and a short walk from Raffles Place.
I only have good things to say about this hotel in Singapore! It has 32 cozy, light rooms. Everything is very creative and unusual. The restaurant is also very nice, with a glass roof and interesting lights. The rooms are about $150.
Located in the business district (CBD) in Singapore, it's just a few minutes walk from Chinatown, and it's very well connected to the nearby metro. For those travelers who like walking you can go to almost all of the interesting city sights on foot because of its great location. This is a business hotel, but even if you're a tourist it can have have its advantages. One of those advantages is that the pool, located on the roof of the 11th floor, is almost always empty, and it has jacuzzis. The pool and hot tubs can be used until 11 p.m., so after a long day of sightseeing, you can relax or go for a swim before dinner. It has Wi-Fi in the rooms, which are elegantly decorated. The cleanliness of the rooms is excellent as it is in all of the hotel's facilities. It has a complete gym open 24 hours as well as a spa area. Breakfast is a varied buffet where nothing is lacking and it has quality products. The hotel has 28 floors and although the building is not known for its architecture, its interior is stylish and functional. The lobby is a large open space that highlights a large bull sculpture. At one end is Restaurant 2000 where you can enjoy Asian cuisine with a menu that fuses Chinese, Indian and Malaysian food. For those of you who don't want to run the risk of choosing badly, there are more Western dishes as well.
We stayed at the Ibis here in Singapore. It is a modern hotel with almost everything I want from a hotel: clean, comfortable bed, a quiet location, great front desk service, free wifi, information about the best place to go to change money (not in the hotel itself, where it's more expensive). But the cons are: the room isn't too big, the breakfast isn't amazing. The best thing about the hotel is undoubtedly its location, less than 5 minutes walk from a large food court, a temple, an Arabic and Indian neighbourhood, several shopping centres, a thousand places to eat and cinemas. I know I'll be back here if I return to Singapore.
This hotel is only two minutes walk from the famous Clarke Quay, a lively area at night because of all the restaurants and bars on the banks of the river. The Park Regis hotel has modern, elegant decor. The staff at the reception, the bar and restaurant are friendly, polite and helpful, always willing to try to answer our requests. Our bedroom was quite large and had all the necessary amenities.
The bathroom mirror and sink were in the same room as the bed, while the toilet and shower were in two separate cubicles. I can't make any complaints about the cleanliness - everything was spotless. The breakfast is quite poor, without much choice and with little to satisfy the European palate. There's a bar with sofas and tables, both inside and outside for the smokers. Coffee wasn't included with breakfast, and was quite expensive, about 3.50 each. There were taxis available all the time, and the hotel is just a few minutes from the Clarke Quay metro stop.
A good hostel if you want to meet other travelers and enjoy economic, well-located accommodation. The structure is quite simple - shared rooms and private rooms, with prices ranging from $15 to $45. The breakfast (included) is simple, with optional coffee, tea, sliced bread, butter and jam. There's a baker and a supermarket nearby if you prefer something more elaborate, and the hostel has a collective fridge - just label your products with your name.
If you want to cook your own food, dishes and utensils are available - be sure to wash up when you're finished! The internet is free, with wifi or computers available if you don't have your own device. The bathrooms and showers are shared, and are near the kitchen and laundry room. When we visited, we didn't find any vacancies anywhere, but the owner of this hostel helped us out by putting two extra beds on the terrace. It's close to a bus stop and subway station, so it's easy to get around town.
