They aren't 'budget' or 'cheap'.
According to AsiaRooms.com’s recently released global traveler confidence index, respondents in Singapore spent an average of USD114 or S$144 on staycations in the past12 months, so these recommended hotels would fit the average Singaporean’s budget quite perfectly.
AsiaRooms.com, a travel accommodation site in Asia notes that these are not specifically “budget” or “cheap” hotels.
"AsiaRooms.com would like to steer away from the use of these terms which might indicate that they are somewhat inadequately equipped/serviced in some way, but instead, these hotel rooms are star buys that rate between 3-5 stars and can be booked at “great value” or “at a steal”.
According to AsiaRooms, many of them have been recommended because they are new, or are unusual finds due to their unique designs that offer guests a different experience from other hotels.
All these hotels offer free wifi.
As 32% of survey respondents in Singapore spent between 1-3 nights on domestic accommodation for leisure in the past 12 months, these services might prove indispensable to locals looking for a quick, short respite from the office.
