5 Places To Stay When In Singapore
Looking for a posh pad to celebrate a special occasion (or just 'tomorrow', if that's how you roll)? Or are you thinking of going the budget backpacker route to save some money for shopping? Depending on the kind of traveller you are, here are five types of accommodation for you to choose from.
For the Luxury Traveller: JW Marriott Singapore South Beach
Loved by their guests, the JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach combines great taste, location, and a spirit of excellence to exceed expectations. Its Premier Suite (100.6 square metres) is to die for; the one-bedroom layout will make you feel like you've taken a flight to Heaven and landed at Grandeur Avenue. If you don't need that much space, check out its Premier Room (40.8 square metres), which is still very much a beautifully designed and stylishly comfortable place to rest your head.
For the Mid-Range Traveller: Hotel Mono
If you're into the minimalist chic look, you'll love Hotel Mono, which spans across 6 newly rejuvenated historical shop-houses. Each room is decked out in neutral colors and clean lines, enhancing the contemporary style of the building. Its location can't be beat either; it's right in the heart of Chinatown and within walking distance to numerous cafes, restaurants, bars, and shops. You'll definitely get your money's worth with this one!
For the Budget Traveller: The Southbridge Hotel
Located in the Chinatown district, The Southbridge Hotel makes for quick access to museums, attractions, and business meetings in the city. The rooms may be small, but they're nicely fitted out and comfortable. With the hotel being so close to public transport, it's a great choice for travellers who enjoy exploring the city they're visiting. If you're looking for a way to start your evening with a buzz, try the jazz and whisky bar at the hotel which has live music playing every night.
For Family Vacationers: Hard Rock Hotel, Resorts World Sentosa
Just a 10-minute walk from literally everything the little ones would love, like theme park Universal Studios Singapore and wax paradise Madame Tussauds, the Hard Rock Hotel, Resorts World Sentosa is the perfect accommodation choice for a family-friendly holiday spot. Its Deluxe Room, which comes with a separate sitting area, can sleep up to 2 adults and 2 children. Don't forget to check out the pool area; there's a pool bar for the adults, and a water slide and playground for the kids.
For Something Unique: Hotel Vagabond
Designed to wow the senses, the rooms in Hotel Vagabond, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel, are fun, artsy, and unforgettable. With only 41 rooms in the building, the care and service rendered can be said to be personalised and authentic. The building itself oozes history, given its colonial past, and you can find yourself feeling a bit French at the Parisian-like Vagabond Salon. If the attention to detail and beautiful decor doesn't win you over, we don't know what will!
