Eight New and Affordable Hotels to Stay in Singapore for 2013
Underpinned by healthy hospitality outlook, hotel openings have sprouted throughout Singapore to support the increase in international visitors. Eight new budget hotels have since opened in Singapore this year.
The new hotel developments are built on the numerous new attractions to Singapore?s tourism landscape such as the opening of River Safari, Marine Life Park and Gardens by the Bay. In addition, the estimated 15 million visitors? arrival to Singapore in 2013 has pushed up the demand for hotel rooms.
With the average room rate hovering around US$205 in 2012 (according to Singapore Tourism Board?s statistics) and Singapore being rated the sixth most expensive city in the world according to a recent survey conducted by London-based Economic Intelligence Unit, the opening of these eight new budget hotels certainly provides a cheaper alternative for the cost-conscious travelers.
?These new budget hotels couldn?t choose a better time than now to open. There is a huge pent-up demand from travelers for cheaper accommodation and especially visitors from countries like Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia. Also, as part of the hotels? opening marketing drive, these hotels will be offering special Singapore hotel promotions?that discerning travelers should take advantage of,? says Danny Lee of BudgetHotels.sg, an online hotel guide platform specializing in listing budget hotels near MRT train stations.
