Best Budget Hotels for Shopping in Singapore
Picking a hotel and shopping in Singapore
Picking a hotel that supports an ambitious shopping trip is tough because hotels around the coveted Orchard Road and downtown shopping hubs are typically expensive and in-demand. If you’re determined though, there are always good Singapore hotel deals and promotions to be found, just as with those good shopping deals tucked away in corners.
Fort Canning Lodge
If you’re deadly serious about conquering Singapore’s ultimate shopping destination, Orchard Road, you really need to stay nearby. At over 2 kilometers long and offering over 5,000 stores, you won’t be able to see everything in a day. Fort Canning Lodge, located near Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station, is an ideal spot hotel to recuperate in, and the spacious rooms give you plenty of storage space.
Ibis Hotel Singapore on Bencoolen
Another popular hotel with shopping aficionados is Ibis Hotel Singapore on Bencoolen. This hotel enjoys a fabulous location in the downtown core, close to both Orchard Road and the equally exciting Bugis shopping hub. The Bugis area gives you the opportunity to experience a festive street bazaar and even the outdoor “Thieves’ Market”.
If you’re an electronics fan, you should also head to Sim Lim Square where you’ll find floor after floor of the latest gadgets.
Hotel Grand Chancellor
To be right in the bustling action of Little India, Hotel Grand Chancellor is a good action. Just off the exciting, always crowded Serangoon Road, this modern and high-rise hotel is a short walk from Little India MRT Station and close to the best Little India has to offer.
Just minutes away is the famous Mustafa Center, featuring 24-hour shopping for everything under the sun, including gold jewelry, laptops, tablets, Apple products, digital cameras and even health supplements!
V Hotel Lavender
V Hotel Lavender may not actually be situated by any shopping hubs, but it’s strategically placed just over a downtown MRT station (Lavender). From here, you can take a train to any shopping hubs like: Orchard Road, Bugis, City Hall, Little India or even further out to Harbourfront and Holland Village.
Think about what a relief it will be on your return journey laden with shopping bags, knowing you won’t have to walk a long distance to your hotel from the MRT station.
