Singapore is one of my favorite cities in the world. It has an iconic skyline of futuristic skyscrapers, lush green spaces, and is one of the best foodie hubs in the region. The markets here are brimming with cheap hawker stalls, including stalls offering some of the most affordable Michelin-starred meals in the world.

But Singapore is expensive. It’s easy to blow your budget here. While you can get cheap meals, accommodation will eat away at your budget.

Over the years, I’ve stayed at countless hotels in Singapore, so today I want to share my list of the best hotels in Singapore:

1. The Scarlet

This award-winning four-star hotel is in Chinatown, my favorite area of the city. It’s spread across restored 19th-century shophouses and an Art Deco building from the 1920s (you can’t miss its distinctive red façade). The inside is bright and bold, with rich colors and plush furnishings. The hotel also boasts a rooftop restaurant and bar, an outdoor hot tub, a gym, and a French patisserie where you can get fresh pastries in the mornings.

The stylish rooms are uniquely designed with avant-garde décor like colorful velvet chaise longues and unique headboards. The bathrooms are spacious, the beds are comfy, and you can even choose your pillow from a custom pillow menu. All rooms offer flatscreen TVs, work desks, complimentary minibars, luxurious bathrobes, and tea/coffee-making appliances. If you want a more mid-range option in Chinatown, stay here.

Capsule hotels are something you’ve got to experience at least once in Asia. Think of them a bit like an elevated hostel. KINN is one of a handful of capsule hotels in the Quays area. This hotel is minimally designed, everything is super clean, and you’ll get a small free breakfast (a sandwich and fruit) in the mornings. There’s also a pantry with free snacks, coffee and tea, a shared lounge, a laundry facility, and a rooftop terrace with a beautiful view. I especially like that guests get free access to fitness classes at a nearby gym, as well as discounts on a co-working space a couple of blocks away.

The capsules have AC and feature comfortable bedding, a foldable shelf and mirror, integrated lighting, blackout privacy blinds, and power outlets. You’ll also get a personal locker to secure your stuff. The shared bathrooms have large showers with good pressure. There are free toiletries too. If you want a bit more privacy…
