Centered around a hospital, about a 10-minute drive from several golf courses
Equidistant from an area full of golf courses and downtown Singapore, the Oasia Hotel is located near a large medical hub. This hotel is a popular choice nonetheless, especially among business travelers looking to save some money in comparison to staying in the downtown area. The Oasia Hotel is a 10-minute drive from lively Chinatown.
Bustling Chinatown is located on the south bank of the river and is one of the major tourist destinations in town. The neighborhood has a lot of historical and cultural significance, and many of its buildings and streets have been declared National Heritage Sites. Surprisingly, it's also known for a nightlife scene, which draws crowds on weekends. One of the main attractions here is the night markets, with dozens of food stalls and vendors selling everything from flowers to clothes.
Singapore is known to have heavy traffic at all times, so the following driving times are just for guidance.
The Oasia is an upscale hotel offering affordable rates, due to its location outside of the downtown area. Some people (especially those traveling on medical business) prefer this neighborhood for its close proximity to major hospitals. The 428 sleek, minimalist rooms are spacious and feature blonde wood, iPod docks, and big flat-screen TVs. Guests that upgrade to Club Rooms or suites will have larger bathrooms and access to the "Living Room" area that includes an outdoor infinity pool. Guests on the regular floors can use the pool by the eighth floor fitness center. While rooms feature nice touches such as electric kettles and espresso makers, there is a pesky fee for Wi-Fi.
