Even though Singapore is known for its five-star hotels, you can still find cheap hotels in Singapore. The affordable hotels in Singapore range from dorm rooms in backpacker hostels to quirky boutique hotels to international cheap chain hotels like the Ibis and the Novotel, both inexpensive.
Traditionally, backpackers and cheap places to stay are clustered around the Little India area, where many cheap but friendly hotels can be found. Little India is an excellent place to stay if you’re on a tight budget. It has cheap restaurants, internet cafes, and a great Tekka Market. The city’s MRT (subway/underground) system is perfect so that you can get to other parts of the city in just a few minutes.
Here are the five cheapest hotels in Singapore that are best for a staycation!
