A stay at a Singapore hotel can be inexpensive because there are many cheap Singapore hotels. An example of a cheap Singapore hotel would be Hotel Royal Singapore. It is located at 36 Newton Road, Singapore 307964.
Hotel Royal Singapore can be said to be strategically located. It takes about eight minutes to walk to the Novena MRT station, which is only two stations away from the Orchard MRT station. MRT stands for Mass Rapid Transit, which is Singapore's version of the metro, or the subway.
In addition, there is also a bus stop right outside the hotel that can take you to Orchard Road. And as you might already know Orchard Road is a well known and bustling shopping paradise in Singapore.
Dining in the hotel includes the 24-hour Trishaw Coffee House, Jade Room Chinese Restaurant and Kandagawa Japanese Restaurant. If that is not for you, then you could venture out to Newton food center which is close by. There are also restaurants and shops at United Square nearby. And above Novena MRT station you will find Novena Square and Square 2.
For relaxation you can visit the hotel's massage and sauna facilities. There is a gymnasium and an outdoor swimming pool too. And at the end of a tiring day, why not unwind and have a drink with your family or buddies at the Link Pub, or Aurora Club, or Superstar KTV, or the VIP lounge.
Hotel Royal Singapore has 331 deluxe rooms and suites and there is internet access. It has a three star rating. The staff members are helpful and provide friendly and warm service to all their guests. However, some guests have complained that the rooms look old and that they were disturbed by the noise from the karaoke singing up to one o'clock in the morning. Anyway the corridors look newly renovated and the rooms are relatively spacious and clean.
For the business travelers, you may be pleased to know that there is a 24-hour business center and internet connection at a low fee. For meetings and conferences there are also seminar rooms equipped with the usual audio-visual aids.
At the time of writing the hotel charges an adult from about SGD 177 for a Superior Room to SGD 188 for a Deluxe Room. It could be cheaper if you book your room when there is a special offer.
