Accommodation in Singapore
Ranging from backpacker, budget and youth hostels to boutique and five-star hotels, Singapore offers its visitors a wide variety in accommodation. Apart from the room services, mini bars, no-smoking zones, business and fitness centers, most of the hotels offer the standard facilities like IDD phones (International Direct Dial), data ports for modem, internet and cable.
In order to access the perfect accommodation for your stay in Singapore, you are recommended to use an accommodation search engine or go for Singapore Hotels Directory which provides you full information regarding rates, facilities and contact numbers along with location maps.
Rates mentioned in the directory are the published rates as furnished by different hotels. To get promotional rates which are subject to vary from time to time, you should directly check with the hotels before making the final reservations.
Whether you are planning the trip in vacation time or going there any time of the year, it is always better making advance reservations to avoid disappointments and get good deal or else you would not get the good accommodation. Online booking is not an issue as most of the hotels accept credit cards. It is worth mentioning that all the rates quoted on website or in brochures, are in Singapore Dollars and might be subject to service charge by 10% and Goods and Service Tax (GST) by 7%.
If for any reason, you can not get advance reservation then take help from the SHA counters at the Singapore Changi Airport for the hotel bookings. East Counter at Terminal 1 is open from 1000 hrs to 2330hrs in night while West Counter provides services for 24 hrs. North counter at Terminal 2 is open from 0700 to 2300 hrs while South Counter serves you for 24 hrs.
