Singapore YMCA Hotel

It is really difficult to find a cheap hotel in Singapore's over-priced hotel market. It gets more difficult to find a cheap hotel, "cheap" here is of course relatively cheap, in the central area. There are some cheaper options compared to the other very high priced hotels.

Sitting in the middle of the Orchard Road, where hotel prices are the highest in Singapore, 3 star Singapore YMCA Hotel offers a mid range accommodation which falls into almost budget hotel room category in the city state. The building is relatively old but do not judge a hotel with its facade. The facilities are renovated and the rooms are comfortable. But since as a budget hotel with great value for money and very good location, it is highly sought after so you need to book really in advance to find an empty room in the hotel.

YMCA International House Hotel on Orchard Road is one of the best hotel choices in Singapore which offers great value for money for almost all type of leisure or business travelers. There are student beds in a dormitory setting for students (the hotel is right next to Singapore Management University, Chicago School of Business and some other private schools), superior deluxe, family suites and junior suites.

Singapore YMCA Hotel is very family friendly and its family suites are first to consider for travelers with kids and tight budget. There are two room sizes to choose for families: a smaller room capable of hosting up to three people and a larger one housing a maximum of four. The Superior (Single / Twin) rooms goes around 150 USD per night while family deluxe goes for around 175 USD per night (as we have said, relatively cheap!). If you would like a student dormitory bed, it is around 32 USD per night.

YMCA offers a very comfortable stay, great location (in central Orchard Road area) and amenities around. It is very near to central business district, 2 MRT Stations (Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station and Bras Basah MRT Stations), several budget eateries such as food courts (Plaza Singapura near this hotel has a very nice Food Court). The hotel also provides a rooftop swimming pool and a gym.

There is a Coffee Shop on the premises, which serves all meals including value-for-money set meals.You can also eat near the hotel. There are several eateries in the SMU buildings, in Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station and in Plaza Singapura which is less than 10 minutes walk away from the hotel. You can discover Orchard Road on foot from the hotel and some central attractions like Fort Canning Park, Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, National Museum of Singapore, Asian Civilisations Museum and Chijmes (a Neo-Classical style building which houses some of Singapore’s most exciting dining and entertainment venues) are very near.
