This post was originally published on my lifestyle blog, Ramble Tumble. Since it is about accommodation, I figured it will be useful to my Travel Kudos reader, so I decided to republish the post here.
Singapore has a whole range of accommodations that suits every budget and need. From swanky 5-star hotels to unique boutique hotels to hostels, Singapore has it all.
But what if you just want a place to crash and refresh yourself for a couple of hours and you don’t need to stay overnight?
Let me introduce you to a new term that I have picked up recently – Day-Use Hotels. As the name implies, these are hotels that allow you to use the rooms for a certain number of hours during the daytime.
If you are looking for day-use hotels in Singapore, you can give dayuse.com a try. There are about 10 budget hotels that has day-use rooms on this website, but all these hotels are not very near town area.
I have personally tried one of these budget hotels, called Sandpiper Hotel located near Little India.
As you can see from the photographs, Sandpiper Hotel is similar to budget hotels like Hotel 81 and Frangrance Hotel. They are all basically no-frill hotels, but they are slightly cheaper than Hotel 81 and Fragrance Hotel. You should expect to pay $50-80 for 4-6 hours of use.
Here are a few other big-brand hotels in Singapore that offer day-use rooms. Please email or call to make a reservation:
