Chinatown Hotel Singapore reinventing the budget stay hotel
Finding a reasonably priced hotel in the heart of Singapore is not always the easiest task as prices tend to be much higher than outer parts of the city. So for those who dont want to spend a large chunk of their holiday funds on an overpriced 5 star accommodation then you may want to have a closer look at the Chinatown hotel.
Ideally situated in the center of Singapores popular Chinatown district guests will be within short walking distance of several of the major attractions, including Peoples Paradise a major shopping hub, the scenic Peal City Park and the famous Thien Hock Keng temple. For those hoping to travel further out of the city center there is the main Outram Park MRT the most convenient form of public transport that can take you to other areas within minutes.
