Best Hotels in Singapore

Which are the best hotels in Singapore? If you look at different criteria, you will have different hotels in the list. One can think that it is best to look at online hotel reservation sites where hotel guest reviews can give you the best. But this will also create different lists because different online booking sites are popular among different user groups.

To create our best hotels in Singapore list, we have looked at, one of the most popular hotel meta-search engine in the world. A meta-search engine is a search engine which compiles results from different search engines. In this case compiles its results from popular online hotel reservation sites and allows its users to search and compare hotel rates in one search.

Hotelscombined also provides an aggregated summary of hotel reviews and ratings from external sites. These aggregated customer ratings are the ones we use to determine the best hotels in Singapore. We have included only the hotels with 9.0 or more rating and at list 250 user reviews (hotelscombined calls these hotels stellar hotels).

Below is not a ranking list but a group of outstanding Singapore hotels judged on guest reviews.
