20 Hotels In Singapore Under S$300 That You Can Go For A Staycation

Singapore Best Hotels

Can’t get away for the weekend because there is no one to take care of your dog? Or do you just really need a short escape from the daily grind – even if it meant just for one night?

That is when you seek a respite within Singapore itself. And it is what we all call a “staycation”. For the uninitiated, the term might baffle a little, but it really means having a holiday outside of your house, but still within Home. More often than not, a staycation is a night’s stay at a lovely hotel, and it is one that is undisturbed and pampering all the same.

Hotel options in Singapore are aplenty, and whatever your budget is, there will be something that fits the bill. But budget for such “mini holidays” is a rising concern, and though we’d love to call The Westin Singapore home for a night, not everyone can afford to do that regularly.

But what if we told you there are actually a handful of staycation options in Singapore that are under S$300 per night? Yes, you heard us right. Here is the list you should totally bookmark. However, do note that hotel rates fluctuate every so often and different seasons call for different rates. And what we have here is accumulated based on our various research periods and occasional deals, so it does not speak for the hotel’s rates entirely. Be sure to check out the various properties’ social media pages for flash deals like we did!

Here are 20 hotels in Singapore under S$300 where you can go for a staycation at.

Amara Hotel SingaporeSource: Amara Hotel Singapore


Not the sexiest area to do a staycation, but Amara Singapore boasts a really convenient location. Right beside the Tanjong Pagar MRT, Amara Singapore is primarily a business hotel, but we’d like to think of that place as an alternative option.

On weekends, Tanjong Pagar is one that bustles with local lifestyle and heritage. No commercial crowd, no white collars and suited-up businessmen rushing around. It is just an honest area that exudes strong Singapore cultures – explore the local wet markets and food centres, do lunch at the many cafes in the vicinity, go for a post-dinner drink at the stretch of bars just farther up from the station.

Rates start from S$156++ per night.

Bay HotelSource: Bay Hotel Singapore


Conveniently located at the Southern part of Singapore, just across Vivo City and surrounded by the serenity of Mount Faber Park, Bay Hotel is a small property with basic rooms, but it is good for a simple staycation if you want some undisturbed time with your partner. The rooms are modern and fully air-conditioned, and comes with free wi-fi too. Pack with you your favourite DVDs and it shall be movie night at Bay Hotel with its flat-screen TV.

Rates start from S$144++ per night.

Carlton Singapore Club Lounge


What is primarily a commercial property is slowly becoming a popular option among locals for a short staycation. Carlton Singapore is undergoing revamps in these two years, and since their new wing is up, it has seen many local couples and families over the weekends.

And if you are staying at Carlton Singapore, you will be spoilt for choice for meals. There is Cafe Mosaic with its international buffet spread, then there is Wah Lok Cantonese Restaurant for its ever popular dim sum, and Tuxedo Patisserie bakes pretty mean desserts.

Rates start from S$200++ per night.

76 Bras Basah Road

Nearest Station: City Hall

Capri by Frasers


This is a relatively unknown spot in Singapore for a staycation, and one that we affectionately recognize as our secret hideout. Capri by Frasers might be at the extreme East side of Singapore, but it is precisely its location that we appreciate. Be away from the crowd, and just retreat to a lush oasis of tranquility and quietness.

Capri by Frasers does not have the best pool though, but that is fine because we were pretty happy snuggling under the sheets in the bright room that is filled with natural sunlight. And Changi City Point is just adjacent to the property, so if you need someone to wine and dine, you have The Oasis to turn to. Read this post for more information.

Rates start from S$210++ per night.

Dorsett SingaporeSource: Dorsett Hotel Singapore


If you have a penchant for cafe-hopping, then Dorsett Singapore Hotel might entice you. The relatively new property sits at Outram Park, and is very accessible to its neighbouring areas like Keong Saik Road, Tiong Bahru, Everton Park and Duxton Hill. There are so many quaint cafes at those areas, and staying at Dorsett Singapore means being so close to good coffee and food.

And a plus point? Dorsett Singapore is just right above the MRT station, so getting around is made easy. If you need a quick shopping fix, Vivo City is just one stop away.

Rates start from S$176++ per night.

Staying in the City Hall is a nice alternative. You are still in the heart of the city, there are plenty of shopping and dining options, but you do away with the massive crowd that you’d get from Orchard Road. Fairmont Singapore makes that nice option if you are looking for somewhere centralized yet not overly crowded, and the lovely thing about a staycation at Fairmont is that you are not too far away

Rates start from S$220++ per night.

Holiday Inn Singapore AtriumSource: Holiday Inn Singapore Atrium


You might wonder, “Why Holiday Inn Atrium?” Sure, it is not the top-of-mind choice when it comes to staycation, but we will tell you just why it makes a splendid option.

If you are not one to bum around in a room for fear that boredom will corrupt your soul, listen up. Holiday Inn Atrium Singapore is perfect for the party-goers. Zouk is just across the road, so party away and “home” is just 5 minutes’ away if you get too drunk. Ain’t it perfect for you and your girlfriends? It is like a holistic Ladies’ Night – you party, you dance the night away, you have a PJ’s party and wake up with wonderful memories of your night out.

Xin Cuisine

Or if you are a foodie, then Holiday Inn Atrium Singapore shall be your “base” while you eat your day through around the area. Don’t forget to have a meal at Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant – an underrated restaurant that totally deserves your attention.

Hotel Jen

Hotel Jen orchardgateway pool


Right smack in the middle of Somerset, the new Hotel Jen @ Orchard Gateway is our prime choice when we want a staycation at Orchard Road that will not have our wallets take a beating. Strategically located right above Orchard Gateway – where Phoenix Hotel used to be at – this is one swanky property that is surprisingly very affordable too.

The hotel is not your over-the-top kind of fancy. Rather, it is fun with a touch of modernity, and kinda sexy but nothing intimidating. Bright colours dominate the decor and furnishing of Hotel Jen @ Orchard Gateway, and the mood board is that of young and trendy.

The rooms are nothing too special, but that’s fine by us because the fluffy white sheets are comfy all the same, and we get a view of the bustling Orchard Road. Toiletries are at the bare minimum, so we’d suggest bringing your own. If you are a tourists, setting Hotel Jen @ Orchard Gateway as your base makes commuting around a whole lot easier.

Kam Leng

Kam Leng Hotel


For the ones who love reminiscing the past and want to transport back in time, go for a staycation at Kam Leng Hotel – a really small but very retro boutique hotel in Jalan Besar. We love its vintage touches all over. The lobby alone is so charming, and you can even find magazines from four decades ago!

Sure, it is not the most exciting area to stay at, but if you have a room at Kam Leng, you need not even go out. Take some time to explore and rediscover all that are lost in time. The Cabin Room is really tiny, so we’d suggest to go for its Executive Room which is slightly more spacious.

Rates start from S$83++ per night.

Klapsons is very sexy. This luxury boutique hotel in the Tanjong Pagar district is a very popular option among locals, and it it not difficult to understand why. With a funky interior and playful use of coloured lights, Klapsons Boutique Hotel has room rates that are generally well-priced under S$300.

Another sexy alternative for a romantic staycation with your partner is Moon Hotel at Little India. It looks like just any other random building, and probably unassuming. But step in and you will be charmed by its fancy interior. Cosy yet stylish, Moon 23 Hotel is predominantly white with touches of deep purples. The MRT station is just a 5-minute walk away, so getting around won’t be difficult. Indeed an ideal budget choice for locals and tourists alike!

Oasia Hotel


If you want a comfortable getaway without the noise of a city, then Oasia Hotel will work for you. Tucked away from the crowd, Oasia Hotel at Novena feels more like a residence than a commercialized property. Its full-white decor and clean interior makes the room so inviting and the moment you step in, you know you will be in for a good night’s rest.

Expect no lavishness here at Oasia Hotel. Rather, look forward to slowing down and catching a breather, while savouring life with quiet moments. Take a dip at its pool that is situated on the eighth floor and overlooking the Novena precincts; we love how it feels like we are blending right in to the upper class neighbourhood.

The new property is clean, spacious and colourful. And we love the outdoor pool so much! Deck chairs are aplenty for you to kick off your shoes and to unwind with some magazines. If all else fails, the stunning bar will keep you occupied.

Regent Singapore


Tanglin is a quaint neighbourhood that is not too far away from the main Orchard Road, and if you fancy the elusiveness of that area, then Regent Singapore will make a splendid staycation option. We love its modern rooms and how the hotel exudes that understated elegance and timelessness.

Rates start from S$254++ per night.

Rendezvous Hotel SingaporeSource: Rendezvous Hotel Singapore


Just slightly farther up from the main Orchard Road, Rendezvous Hotel used to be an old building that looked somewhat dodgy. But its newly renovated facade is a lot more inviting now.

For its strategic location, we’d say it is worth a shot for both locals and tourists alike. Just hop on to a bus and you’re on your way to explore Singapore for her colourful culture and gastronomical delights.

Royal Plaza On Scotts


This property may be slightly old, but it still makes an ideal staycation option when you want something affordable with a very convenient location. Royal Plaza on Scotts is famous for its international buffet spread at Carousel, but more than that, we love the accessibility and spacious rooms.

The rooms at Royal Plaza On Scotts are not the most elegant nor posh, but it is self-sufficient – work desk with free in-room wi-fi, flat screen LED TV, a window-side leather seat,  Nepresso machine and TWG tea sachets, complimentary mini bar, and king-sized bed with a concise pillow menu. Over in the bathroom, you’ve got your bath tub and rainforest shower. And have we mentioned how toiletries make a great impact on our stay? Boy, were we pleased to see L’occitane stocked in the shower room.

Royal Plaza on Scotts makes a great option for tourists too, especially first-timers. There are buses that go to all parts of Singapore, the MRT station is a 5-minute walk away, and the major shopping malls are all within walking distance too.

Rates start from S$198++ per night.

Scarlet Hotel Singapore

The Scarlet Hotel


Very sexy, and very elusive. The Scarlet Singapore Hotel is one boutique hotel that we really like for many reasons. It is not the fanciest, but it has a mardi gras touch that makes the whole place so regal and somewhat mystical. There are no facilities in the hotel to speak of, rest for a rooftop bar that overlooks the Southern part of Singapore.

But a night’s stay at The Scarlet is ideal for couples who want to spend some quality time together while being away from the world. The room is not too spacious but it covers your basics, and the bed is surprisingly comfortable and had us snoozing our alarms for more than an hour! Best part of The Scarlet? Maxwell Food Centre is just a stone’s throw away, so you never have to worry about going hungry.

Rates start from S$191++ per night.
