Singapore hotels are now less expensive

Hotel rates fall in one of Asia’s most expensive cities
Visitors to Singapore are now finding accommodation friendlier to their pockets as hotel prices in one of the most expensive cities in Asia continue to fall.
Since the start of 2013, the city has seen a 9% drop in average room rate, down to S$239 (€160), down from S$263 in 2013, according to the latest Hotels.com Hotel Price Index.
“The popularity of Singapore as a stopover point makes it highly susceptible to any changes within the region. Demand for hotels here fell last year as travellers sought alternative destinations during the period of Thailand’s Martial Law, and also as Chinese visitor numbers to the country dropped,” explains Katherine Cole, Hotels.com regional director.
“However, we expect to see increased demand for travel to Singapore in 2015, especially as the Chinese and Russian travel markets continue to boom and as the city-state gears up for its Golden Jubilee and the South-east Asian Games this year.”
