    Which hotel in Singapore?

    Hi,

    I'm planning a holiday to Singapore in the summer with my 2 kids (one will be 3 years old and the other 8 months). I've read a lot of good reviews about Singapore and was wondering where people stayed - we're planning to visit the zoo and sentosa island. Are there any other places people recommend to go with young children?

    Thanks!

    Trip to Singapore during Easter

    in addition, Universal Studios just opened up on Sentosa.

    Centrally located hotels: Hilton, Marriott on Orchard.
    The Mandarin Oriental and Ritz are closer to the financial area by Marina Bay

    Singapore though is very easy to get around, nothing is really ever that far and taxis take you everywhere!

    I`m in Singapore right now (baby is napping...zzzzz). We`re staying near Arab street (near Bugis MRT) at the Landmark Village Hotel. It`s good, not too expensive (about $150sd), and it`s in a great location, unlike the 5 stars in Marina Bay.
    We don`t plan to go to Sentosa (not our thing and baby is too young to enjoy it) but are going to the zoo when our son wakes up- a friend is driving us. Taxis are inexpensive here so we have just been taking them where we want to go.
    We wanted to go to the Botanical Gardens because they have a children`s place there, but it was too rainy yesterday. That ruined our plans of the pool, Singapore Flyer and rooftop tourbus as well. We ended up just hanging out at our friend`s apartment in Holland Village and having dinner there afterwards. There doesn`t seem to be much to do (except malls like HK, booooorrrring) when it`s rainy though, so hopefully Easter weekend is nice for you.
    Singapore is a really nice city - clean, beautiful and green, and great local food.

    Marriott - centrally located if you want to be in the Orchard Rd area, but a bit dated and very busy all the time

    Fullerton - nice rooms, has river view, location is more CBD but still easy to get around, and more relaxed atmosphere

    Mandarin Oriental - nice rooms as well, also with water view, near to shopping centres with great food

    We stayed at the Shangri-la Rasa Sentosa and loved it.
    And Singapore is really small so regardless of where you stay you are still close to everything.

    Just checked, Ritz (SGD240), Four Seasons (SGD240), Mandarin Oriental (SGD245), Fullerton (SGD250).

    Singapore has other cheaper and good hotels too btw.

    We stayed at Swissotel Stamford and really liked it. I like that it's practically on top of the MRT station and within walking distance to everywhere. Very convenient. The rooms were nice and the service was good too.
