Cityhub hotel Singapore, a boutique styled budget accommodation in the center of the city
If youre a single or group traveler whos planning on visiting Singapore with a limited budget then you might be shocked by the usual price of decent inner city hotel these days. Though, as accommodation costs continue to increase in this ever changing fast paced economy there are a brave few hotels who have decided to go against the flow and cater exclusively for low to mid range budget travelers. One of these is the cityhub hotel Singapore, a trendy new 3 star accommodation that houses 127 uniquely designed rooms at less than the usual price.
From the outside the cityhub hotel looks strangely like a large toy made building, but after walking through the main entrance guests will be hit by a sleek modern interior with a slightly crazy creative edge that mixes modern and classical styles. This theme extends to the entire interior including the individual rooms which are surprisingly spacious; the rooms have large ceiling to floor windows covering all of one wall and allowing in floods of natural light to give you a larger sense of space and a warm atmosphere. The soft tones and minimal decorations make the hotel seem very boutique like with non-standard decors running through out the place and even into the huge en-suite bathrooms.
Guests have a choice of 3 reasonably priced rooms, the superior, deluxe and family quad rooms, for the first two varieties you can choose to have either 2 twins or a queen sized bed. Whichever room is chosen expect a set of standard amenities and comforts, including an LCD TV with the latest cable/satellite channels, unlimited complimentary internet access, high quality bedding, a personal safe and coffee/tea making facilities. Probably the biggest selling point of the cityhub hotel is its centralized location, standing on Jalan Besar road in the Little India district you are within walking distance to many of Singapores best sights. In fact a 5 minute stroll will take you to the massive Mustafa Center which is known for being a shoppers paradise; alternatively if youre planning on heading further out to other areas of the city you can simply walk 10 minutes to one of 2 MRT stations.
In and around the local Little India area there are hundreds of delicious culinary delights to be had, either in top class restaurants or simply from small street hawkers wandering the streets. If you prefer eating in the cityhub hotel does have its own on-site restaurant called Thangam food palace. Open from midday till the evening this relatively large restaurant specializes in northern and southern local dishes, such as Chicken Tandoori, Cauliflower Madras or Chilli Egg. Though if you dont do spicy and fancy something more western, there is a set international menu available for both lunch and dinner.Overall the cityhub hotel is an excellent mid-priced hotel choice for travelers looking for comfortable and clean rooms in a hotel that has an interesting character. If you plan on spending most of your trip travelling around the city looking at the sights, only using he room occasionally for a short rest or to sleep in then this is the perfect place for you.
