Cheap Singapore Hotels - Victoria Hotel Singapore

Time to time, my friends or people from different forums ask me about Singapore hotel recommendation. They want a safe and clean place in the city, reasonably priced and near the center. I recommend them Victoria Hotel Singapore, on Victoria Street. Victoria Hotel is a good value hotel in central Singapore and has the highest value/price ratio and it has location, location and location!

Most of the hotels below 100 SGD per night are either far from city or in Geylang. Victoria Hotel is located at 87 Victory Street, right in the middle of Singapore with easy access to all the sights and shopping. It is near to both Bugis MRT Station and City Hall MRT Station, Funan DigitaLife Mall, Sim Lim Square, The Raffles City Shopping Centre, Singapore Art Museum, Marina Square and Singapore International Convention Centre at Suntec City Mall. By a little more walk you can also go to Singapore River or Little India.

This is a budget hotel, do not expect fancy things. And also note that you get the value of the money compared to hotels and hotel prices in Singapore. Otherwise it is expensive compared to a hotel like this. Anyway the hotel is clean, the stuff is helpful. Rooms are functional and furnished with modern amenities such as satellite TV, IDD telephone and internet connection. But they are small. They are very small. Indeed the only major complaint about this hotel in hotel review sites is the room size.

The hotel is managed by Santa Grand Hotels which manages several budget hotels and cheap serviced apartments in Singapore.

The room rates at the front desk are usually higher than online booking rates so try to book online before you go there. The hotel rates are usually 114+ SGD but you can occasionally come by promotions.

The whole hotel is non smoking. There is a small smoking area in front of the hotel and at the back. It provides free Wifi access.

While you are staying in the Victoria Hotel, do not miss the opportunity to visit Liang Seah Street and Shaw Towers. They are a walk distance away from Victoria Hotel and has good restaurants to taste asian food. In Liang Seah Street do not forget to visit famous Ah Chew Desserts. Their mango, pamelo. sago with vanilla ice-cream is my all time favorite.
