Best accommodation in Singapore

While prices may disappoint, the range of accommodation in Singapore will not. The island has a plethora of luxury hotels – including a handful that exude colonial splendour, notably the Raffles and the Fullerton – plus competently run, if unexciting, no-frills and mid-range establishments. The best of the upstart boutique hotels have an unorthodox or ultra-luxurious design aesthetic, though some of the more affordable places tend simply to boast a smattering of antique furniture. There are also numerous hostels and guesthouses (the distinction between them is blurry), offering affordable dorm beds and some private rooms. A few of these places are spartan, but most are housed in nicely refurbished shophouses and offer air conditioning, wi-fi, a comfy communal lounge and breakfast, included in the rate; the very slickest have bespoke bunk beds and free toiletries to boot.
