As such, we’ve come up with a few affordable hotel options (all room rates start below $200 a night) that are located centrally and are interesting experiences in their own right.
Designed by Philippe Starck, M Social will appeal to design enthusiasts with its palette of neon colours, as well as steel and mirrored furnishings. The double-height ceilings means that even the smallest rooms does not feel cramped. Located in the lifestyle hub of Robertson Quay, there is no shortage of after-work options to unwind, with many eateries, cafes and bars to be found at the hotel’s door step.

Lloyd’s Inn is a 34-room boutique property located a few minutes from Singapore’s famous Orchard Road shopping belt. More interestingly to visitors, perhaps, is the fact that the hotel is less than a hundred metres from the former residence of Singapore’s first Prime Minister, Lee Kuan Yew, on Oxley Road. The avant-garde property features rooms with different styles and a minimalist feel. The roof terrace and dipping pool that sits amid lush greenery are ideal places to relax after a hectic day of meetings and business lunches. There is no in-house restaurant, but guests receive vouchers for breakfast at two nearby cafes, Freshly Baked and Killiney Kopitiam. A Business Room is also available for those who need a place to work.

The hotel is a 10-minute walk from Bugis and Little India MRT stations.
