Take a look at the best value hotels in Rochor.
The three-pearl Ibis Singapore on Bencoolen is a clean, budget-friendly choice for business and tourist travelers who want to be in a central location near a major metro stop. Its 538 rooms are smallish, but have city views. There's an on-site tapas-style restaurant and a 24-hour bar, and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The hotel also provides stylish bamboo loaner bikes, bamboo umbrellas, and public transportation cards. Travelers may want to compare rates and amenities at Singapore's Ibis Novena.
The V Hotel Bencoolen is a mid-range hotel in Singapore's arts district, with a good range of room configurations and amenities. Its monochromatic decor is angular and stylish throughout and its 270 compact rooms have mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs ,and free Wi-Fi. Studio Rooms have a mezzanine level with an extra bed and the Deluxe Rooms include a private balcony. Despite its central location, the hotel has a pretty garden and pool area with views across the city. Features like a laundry and guest computers are useful additions and, despite having no full-service restaurant of its own, the hotel offers breakfast in the neighboring bistro. Travelers looking for a more intimate experience might consider Hotel Kai instead, which does have its own restaurant, though lacks a pool.
Located between near the Bugis shopping district, Hotel G is a boutique-inspired property with interiors worthy of an Instagram feature. Its 308 rooms are small (though the entry-level option can only be described as tiny), but include great extras like free-to-download newspapers and magazines and upscale toiletries. On-site there's a laid-back burger and liquor bar as well as a casual French restaurant, where breakfast is served daily. The hotel has a spacious gym that's as photogenic as the rest of the property, but there's a lack of lounging areas and guest-only communal spaces. For similar prices, you can stay at Ibis Singapore on Bencoolen, which offers a little more in terms of features, like loaner bicycles, free public transit cards, and -- for business travelers -- meeting rooms.
Santa Grand Hotel Bugis offers a good value for those looking for a mid-range option in central Singapore. The location on the fringe of the Kampong Glam heritage neighborhood is excellent, and train stations and bus stops are within a 10-minute walk. Santa Grand comprises two buildings, and the hotel's overall decor is on the plain side, with certain tired-looking (but clean) areas and rooms. What's amazing is the fact that with such reasonable rates, the hotel has its own pool -- a big plus for the leisure travelers, families, and couples that check in here. For similar rates, guests who want access to more hotel facilities and features may want to check out Hotel Boss, which has a bigger pool and a fitness center, plus room service is available.
The Grand Pacific Hotel, a three-and-a-half-pearl property in central Singapore, is within walking distance of museums, restaurants, shopping, and public transportation. Its lobby is airy and bright, but its 240 rooms, some with views of the city, could use a refresh, as guests have complained about stained carpeting. With an outdoor pool with umbrella tables and loungers, conference and event spaces, and a fitness center, the hotel offers good value. Its Sun Cafe is open all day, serving Peranakan and Western cuisine. Wi-Fi is free throughout, and there is a coin-operated laundry. Travelers could also compare rates with the V Hotel Lavender, a similar property with a pool and slightly more stylish rooms.
The Perak Hotel is a tiny, two-pearl hotel with 35 rooms at the edge of Singapore’s bustling Little India district. There are tons of affordable eats nearby, and the hotel is 20 minutes away from the city center and Marina Gardens by public transport. Although the rooms here are tiny and far from modern, they have some degree of charm, with colonial-era French windows and blue wooden shutters in some. They have minibars, flat-screen TVs, and safes, but bathrooms are small and clinical feeling. Although there's no full restaurant -- or other features for that matter -- all rates include a simple breakfast. Wi-Fi is only accessible in the hotel’s shared areas. Guests looking for a more modern hotel might want to try the nearby Parc Sovereign Tyrwhitt, which also has a pool and gym.
Strand Hotel is a simple, straightforward mid-range property located along a busy Singapore street lined with restaurants and shops. The hotel’s 130 rooms have streamlined decor that feels a bit plain, but they offer plenty of space, along with tea- and coffee-making facilities, mini-fridges, and flat-screen TVs. A continental breakfast is included in most room rates, and there’s 24-hour room service and a basic cafe. But the hotel lacks atmosphere with run-of-the-mill decor and little in the way of notable features. Still, rates are fair, and the location -- smack-dab in Singapore’s downtown -- makes this a handy home base. The nearby Ibis Singapore on Bencoolen has a more contemporary aesthetic, but rates are higher.
The Santa Grand Hotel Little India is a value hotel right in the middle of Singapore’s Little India neighborhood. The only other area of interest beyond the location are the 20 modern -- albeit small -- rooms with clean and contemporary bathrooms and top-notch amenities like flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and kettles. Unfortunately, there’s not much else to the hotel beyond free Wi-Fi, so don’t expect a gym or even breakfast. While budget travelers will appreciate the modern room digs and low prices at Santa Grand Hotel Little India, there are budget hotels in Singapore that offer more value for the same price. As an alternative, the Harbour Ville Hotel provides free cell phones per room, a gym, and snack bar for around the same rate.
Located on a busy street filled with hotels, shops, and restaurants, the three-pearl Hotel Bencoolen is a reasonable option for business travelers and tourists seeking convenience and value. This 84-room budget property is straightforward with small, spare rooms and dated bathrooms that could benefit from a good scrubbing. Breakfast included in the rates is a good mix of Asian and Western choices. There's small outdoor pool and an open-air gazebo on the second floor that houses a selection of cardio machines. Construction on a new metro station directly in front of the hotel creates noise and impedes pedestrian flow during daytime hours. Travelers might want to check out One Farrer Hotel & Spa, a chic, well-priced hotel with two spas and multiple dining options.
Compact and competitively priced, the Parc Sovereign Hotel - Albert St. is a straightforward establishment that's clean and comfortable, if not extraordinary. The mid-range hotel has 172 rooms, which start at a mere 150 square feet for two, but include up-to-date amenities like mobile phones, electric kettles, and SMART TVs, though there are no mini-fridges in entry-level rooms. A convenience store and cafe are connected to the hotel -- the latter doles out room service and daily breakfast buffet. The hotel also has a tiny gym and a narrow outdoor pool. But location could be this property's biggest selling point: It's in walking distance to shops, restaurants, Little India, and two MRT stations. For something a little more stylish, consider the nearby Daulat Hotel, though it tends to be pricier.
This 196-room budget hotel in lively Little India is a good value for travelers who want a simple, clean place to sleep. It's located near a few MRT stations, with access to city center sights in about 25 minutes. Rooms are clean and have a contemporary minimalist style, but most are cramped and Standard Rooms lack windows. Family Rooms are more spacious, however, and have shower/tub combos. Some guests find the frosted-glass bathroom doors lacking in privacy, and hot water can run out quickly in the showers. While the property is well kept overall, there are no amenities aside from two guest computers and free Wi-Fi. As an alternative, the Santa Grand Hotel Little India, is similarly priced and offers entry-level rooms with windows and rainfall showers.
Moon 23 Hotel is a stylish upper-middle-range boutique in Little India with more affordable rates than many of its competitors, but at the cost of fewer amenities. The Standard Rooms are cramped and many have no windows behind their decorative curtains. Trendy wallpaper and rainfall showers help offset some of their faults, but even the Executive Rooms feel small. Guests who can't spring for the Moonlight Suite with its beautiful outdoor tub should check out the nearby Wanderlust, where the slightly higher rates include the use of a backyard whirlpool tub.
The Fortuna Hotel is a no-frills, budget property located in vibrant Little India just a three-minute walk from Mustafa Market and the Farrer Park MRT Station. The hotel's 104 rooms, which range from doubles to four-person family rooms, are basic but comfortable with tasteful, generic decor, though they're showing a bit of wear. Rooms are air-conditioned and feature en-suite bathrooms and standard amenities like electric kettles, mini-fridges, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, though some guests find the latter unreliable. The hotel has virtually no extra property features -- there's a reception area, but no real lounge space. A very basic breakfast is offered for an extra fee. By comparison, the nearby Broadway Hotel Singapore is a budget property with an on-site restaurant, but starker guest room decor.
Victoria Hotel is a budget option right in Singapore's city center. There's little on-site save for a hair salon, but the hotel is close to public transportation and there are plenty of shopping and dining options -- including a couple of complexes with eclectic food courts -- right outside the hotel. The Standard Rooms are small and general renovations are needed throughout the hotel -- stained carpets and moldy bathroom tiles are not uncommon sights. The nearby Hotel 81-Bugis is equally slim on amenities, but has more contemporary rooms at similar rates.
