Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport

If you are looking for a Singapore airport hotel for a convenient stay at a stop-over on an international flight or a luxury transit accommodation, Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport may serve you well. This relatively new luxury airport hotel is practically in Singapore Changi Airport (not near it, just inside), Terminal 3. It is linked to Terminal 3 by covered walkways. The hotel has 9-storey and has 320 rooms; a 100-seater Crowne Plaza Club Lounge; and executive class amenities such as restaurants, meeting rooms, conference rooms, spa lounges, a swimming pool and a health and fitness club.[1]  If you are arriving to or departing from Terminal 1 or 2, you can use Skytrain Service linking all three terminal buildings. If you need parking, you can use Terminal 3 Car Park 3B.

Many business travelers also prefer this Singapore airport hotel especially if their business meeting location is in the city or in the east. The hotel is just 10 minutes away from Changi Business Park, which increasingly houses multinationals, and Singapore Expo, . It is very easy to access to city from the hotel either by a short taxi ride or public transportation. It takes a 25 minutes taxi ride or approximately 45 minutes train ride to the city center which is 18 km from the hotel. Terminal 3 has a direct access to Singapore Metro/Subway (called MRT) green line. This line takes you to city business centers, Raffles Place and City Hall but the you need to transfer to another train in Tanah Merah MRT station.

And negatives? It is quite expensive and you need to pay some big amounts for basics like internet access (no wi-fi and you need to pay around 34 Singapore Dollars for wired Internet) and the restaurant is expensive. If you need to save some money after paying to a luxury hotel, you can head to food court in Terminal 3 which is quite cheap. For the internet access, you can buy 3 days worth of local data plan (sim card) and use internet from your mobile device (I am not sure those plans lets you to turn your mobile device to a hot spot, check with vendor).
