All trendy, beautiful, with a good location and excellent rated. Be sure to check them out!

Little India & Kampong Glam
Many affordable hotels & hostels in Singapore are located around Little India and the Kampong Glam neighborhood. It’s a very good place to stay as there are many things to do like the colorful Haji Lane and Arab street with plenty of cozy restaurants and shops. Above all, it’s only a 5-10 minute subway ride away from the main highlights like Gardens by the Bay.
Outram & Chinatown
The Outram neighborhood in Singapore is located in the central part of Singapore and home to the Chinatown area. It’s a great choice for backpackers and travelers searching for cheap accommodations but still want to be close to all the main attractions. (just a few minutes from the center with the subway) In the Outram neighborhood, you find the trendy Keong Saik Road, which is the perfect place to hang out around evening time in one of the coolest bars and restaurants that Singapore has to offer.
We stayed at Tiong Bahru, a more residential neighborhood close to Chinatown, where we booked a shared dorm room in Thad’s Boutique Hostel. We paid $27 per person/night incl breakfast and can highly recommend this place if you’re looking for an affordable and still trendy place to stay. You get your own bed, power socket, locker, privacy curtain, it’s super clean and located in a lovely area.
River Valley & Orchard
With its central location, River Valley is a great choice for everyone who likes to explore Singapore on foot. Within walking distance, you find plenty of beautiful gardens, shopping malls, world-class restaurants and top sights like Orchard Street, the lively Clarke Quay, and the Singapore River.
Marina Bay Sands: world’s most iconic hotel
If your budget allows and you want to pamper yourself to something unique, then definitely stay a night in the 5* Marina Bay Sands hotel. Relax all day at the world’s largest infinity pool, soak up all the luxury in their beautiful suites and enjoy the most amazing views you could wish for. It is not without a reason that Marina Bay Sands is called the world’s most iconic hotel. Staying here the night is a real bucket list experience!
Tip: book as early as possible if you want to stay here! Marina Bay Sands offers cheaper rooms but is most of the time sold out months in advance. If you book via booking.com, you can often cancel your reservation without any cost a few days before your check-in.
