Many ultra-hip hotels have been popping up all over our tiny island. Hotels have been coming up with quirky themes and gimmicks to win us over, but sometimes, all you need is an affordable short stay where you can relax for the weekend.
Here are the 10 best short stays without the frills – all at under S$200 a night.
1. D’Kranji Farm Resort
The D’Kranji Farm Resort is perfect if you fancy a countryside getaway. With beautiful villa-like accommodations tucked away from the city, you can enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle that is Singapore. In keeping with its farm-style concept, the showers are open-air, harking back to the good ol’ kampung days.
2. Porcelain Hotel
Porcelain Hotel is located in the heart of Chinatown near cultural attractions such as the Chinatown Heritage Centre, the Sri Mariamman Temple and the whole of Chinatown proper. Its interior is reflective of its namesake – ornate and polished with colour schemes of vibrant blue, green and white. Amenities even include a spa which is pretty rare for a boutique hotel.
3. Daulat Hotel
Daulat means good fortune in Malay – which is apt considering the hotel exudes quite the Malaysian vibe. There’s something about the airy interior and spartan furnishings of Daulat hotel that reminds you of some of the idyllic towns of Malaysia, from the rattan-style lounge furniture to the off-beat fittings and decorations.
