How long are you going for and for what purpose?
If its purely leisure and you want a few days downtime, then head no further than Sentosa Island where there are some lovely (but sterile) resorts on the man-made beach. There is a lovely little night club called Cafe Del Mar on the beach which is a nice place to hang out with your laptop for a few hours ;)
If you'll be doing business there, then you probably want to stay close to the action. The Intercontinental is really quite lovely, but also comes with a price. For something a little more fancy, you cant really go past the Fullerton - but as far as affordable goes, it really stretches a back packers budget ;)
ShangriLa is also another nice hotel I've stayed which is the higher end of mid-range, close to everything with a nice cocktail bar on the top floor where you can spend a few hours.
I always use www.agoda.com to book my last minute accommodation because the discounts are fairly substantial. It means you might get a 4 star hotel for the price of a 2 star etc. almost 7 years ago
Hello, You could do a lot worse than the V Hotel Lavender, which is a reasonably priced, 4 star hotel in a good central location.
The rooms here are a bit small, but you are within easy reach of Raffles Place, Orchard Road, the Harbour Front and Chinatown. almost 7 years agoAnswered by Dave via Travellr.com
I agree with Dave that the V Hotel Lavender is pretty good. I usually stay at Hotel 81 on Dickson which is located in the city area, within Singapore's “Little India” as that is the area of town I know best as well. It is a 4 star hotel and decently priced. It is best to book directly with them, though, as if you do wi-fi is free. Otherwise, they may charge you (although they've been kind enough to give me the password for free in the past--it changes daily). I also like the Albert Court hotel, on the edge of Little India, which is also not very expensive. almost 7 years ago
Every time I go to Singapore I always get a room at Santa Grand. Last year it was at Santa Grand Bugis which is in between two MRT Stations, which would be about 10 minutes walk to either station. This year I stayed at one of the Santa Grand Hotels in Chinatown which is just 5 minutes or less walk from the MRT. Both are very good and have clean rooms. Santa Grand Hotel in Chinatown did not offer free breakfast though but there are food places outside the hotel.
The hostels would be another option. The hostels in Singapore are clean and safe. almost 7 years ago
