Hotels near Singapore Changi Airport

The nearest hotel to Singapore Changi Airport is 5-Star Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport which is linked to Terminal 3. The hotel is closed to Singapore Expo and Changi Business Park, so may be a perfect business hub for many. It is also an ideal for stopovers or for travelers with early connections, it may not be for everyone or every budget. 4-Star Capri by Fraser - Changi City may be a better alternative for those who want to be very near to Changi Business Park and prefer an accommodation hybrid of a hotel and serviced apartment. This brand new hotel, which was opened in 2012, provides rooms with with kitchen and many business oriented facilities for those busy guys who do not have time to go out of the hotel.

Both Crowne Plaza Hotel and Capri by Fraser - Changi City are quite outside the city so if you wish to be both near Changi Airport and experience a little bit of Singapore, or you simply do not want to pay a small fortune to an expensive 5 or 4 Star Singapore hotel, there are many other alternatives.

You should look for a hotel in the East, between city center and Changi Airport. If you really want to have a good taste of Singapore, Singapore cuisine and night life, you should book a hotel in the Katong Area.

The most ideally located hotel, in my opinion, is Santa Grand Hotel East Coast on the East Coast Road. The hotel is only 10.2 km from the city center and around 8-10 km away from the airport. But the location advantage comes from its neighborhood. It is right next to one of the most colorful nightlife spots of Singapore : Joo Chiat Road. It is also on the best part of Katong and East Coast Road in terms of great local dining alternatives nearby (the road is full off local restaurants) which is cheaper and much better than the ones in Singapore downtown. The road is home to some of Singapore's best shophouses and Katong is best known for its wonderful eating houses specializing in Peranakan cuisine (the area was formerly dominated by wealthy Straits Chinese families). The place is one of the most beautiful and authentic part of Singapore.

Less than 500 meters away, there is another pleasant hotel named Le Peranakan Hotel. This boutique hotel in Singapore is near the East Coast Park beach and the famous local eateries of Katong. As for Santa Grand Hotel, just steps away from the hotel, there are a myriad of excellent restaurants to choose from. And as we have said above, the area where Le Peranakan Hotel is situated is also one of the best area for nightlife in Singapore. Le Peranakan Hotel single rooms are priced around 80 USD per night but in hotel price comparison sites like, you can find around 60 USD per night.

If you want to be near the airport and away from the busy Singapore city life, Village Hotel Changi by Far East Hospitality provides a tranquil location in the tree-lined village of Changi, just 15 minutes from the Singapore Changi Airport. The hotel is situated adjacent to the Changi Golf Club and the Changi Civil Service Club and is surrounded by nature trails. It is also just a short stroll away from Changi Beach Park and the Changi Sailing Club.
