Hotels & Accommodations in Singapore

ditulis oleh : Jomblo Terhormat 13 Oktober 2013
Singapore can be an expensive city to visit, especially by Asian standards. Whereas bare bones hotels in Bangkok or Hanoi, or even nearby Jakarta or Kuala Lumpur, start around $25 per night, you'll find no such hotels in Singapore -- though a string of hostels offers dorm beds for around $22 per night. Budget travelers looking to avoid the dorms may struggle in Singapore. Food can be found on the cheap, but hotels will certainly account for the largest part of your travel budget. Still, a few deals can be found if you look closely enough. Prices are valid as of March 2011.

Hotel 81

Hotel 81 began as a budget chain, and though the company has since fanned out to cater to a slightly more upscale market, a good number of its budget options remain throughout the city. In total, Hotel 81 operated 20 Singaporean hotels, each originally focused on a pricing structure of $81 Singapore dollars (about $60) per night and hotels featuring 81 rooms. Some of the prices have crept up at the newer locations, but you can still find rooms starting at $50 and ranging upwards of $100, depending on location. Hotel 81 is everywhere in Singapore, from Chinatown to the more remote Geylang area. The chain admits to having smaller rooms, but provides all the amenities you'd expect of a major hotel chain.

Fragrance Hotel

The Fragrance Hotels are another Singaporean chain, similar to Hotel 81. The rates vary at each of the chain's 21 locations, with rooms at hotels in outlying neighborhoods going for about $60 per night and downtown hotels starting closer to $100. Most locations have free Wi-Fi in every room and a DVD player connected to an LCD TV. Rates at some Fragrance Hotels include complimentary breakfast, which partially explains the difference in prices. Look at a Singapore transit map before booking at a specific Fragrance Hotel; it's best to book hotels within easy walking distance of Singapore's well-connected and easy-to-use transit system.

Lloyd's Inn

Just a five-minute walk from the shopping mecca of Orchard Road, Lloyd's Inn offers simple rooms in motel-style buildings. The rooms are small but comfortable and have private bathrooms and climate-controlled air conditioning. Cable TV is standard. The hotel has a small outdoor common area with vending machines and hot and cold water for tea and coffee. The staff will help tourists book tours of the city or give directions to nearby attractions. The real appeal of Lloyd's Inn is its proximity to Singapore's glitziest neighborhood for just under $70 per night. Be sure to try a curry puff from the nearby restaurant of the same name.

Claremont Hotel

The Claremont Hotel, like Lloyd's Inn, is a standalone budget hotel in Singapore, and like Lloyd's Inn, the Claremont is close to one of Singapore's more vibrant and most frequented neighborhoods, Little India. The hotel sits in the northeast corner of Little India, closer to Farrer Park metro station than to the Little India station, but within easy walking distance of the area's temples and markets along Serangoon Road. Rates start at $60 for a double room, with en suite bathrooms and mini fridges. Internet isn't available in the rooms but can be accessed from the lobby for a small fee.
