Our guide on the best places to stay in Singapore

The island state of Singapore has an outstanding hotel scene. As you’d expect from this aspirational and outward-looking city, visitors are given the full red-carpet treatment with a huge variety of excellent hotels to choose from all across the island.

Which such depth of quality the question is not only which accommodation, but where. The overwhelming majority of visitors will find themselves staying somewhere in the ‘downtown core’: Singapore’s busiest and most commercial districts packed together in the southern tip of the island, stretching from the Botanic Gardens and Orchard down to Marina Bay and the Harbourfront Area. In between you’ll find a medley of both historic and modern neighbourhoods, many of which catering to a specific migrant community – Bugis, Chinatown, Little India, the Arab Quarter – and each with their own selection of first-class hotels.

The whole spectrum of hotel styles is also covered. Recent years have seen a proliferation of new ‘boutique’ hotels, such as converted shophouse The Scarlet, leafy retreat Villa Samadhi, or trendy modernist waterfront conversion The Warehouse. Alternatively, if you’re looking for glitz and glamour on the grandest scale look to the iconic Marina Bay Sands, or luxury stalwarts Four Seasons, Shangri-La, or Intercontinental. If high-class heritage is your preference then there’s the gorgeous Fullerton or of course the world-famous Raffles, now back to its brilliant best after a top-to-toe renovation.

Wherever you choose to stay you’ll have excellent public transport at hand, and all of Singapore’s outstanding shopping, dining, and entertainment at your doorstep. Speak to our specialists for inspiration on how to make the absolute best of your stopover, regardless of how much time you have in the city.
