You don’t need to break the bank for a fantastic staycation. Our little red dot is home to a slew of impressive hotels suitable for all budgets. Whether you want to be surrounded by city lights peering through your room window or party by a rooftop pool, here are some of the coolest staycations in Singapore.

01 • Hotel Soloha


Located on Teck Lim Road, this cute chic boutique hotel is just a stone’s throw away from the bustling shops, bars, and eateries of Chinatown.

The hotel’s interior is no less exciting. Look out for walls plastered with vibrant pop art and trendy neon lighting. In addition, every room is fitted with Hansgrohe Raindance multi-jet showers, jungle-themed paintings, and technicolour cushions to ensure a relaxing stay.

Let’s do a quick count. KēSa House is within walking distance of 1, 2…3 MRT stations — they’re Chinatown, Outram Park, and Tanjong Pagar. This brings efficient island exploration to your doorstep. If you’re driving, you can even reach Sentosa within 10 minutes and the Central Business District in half that time.

Despite the small space, KēSa rooms are equipped with numerous charging outlets for your laptop, phone, power banks, and more. Midnight reading is easy on the eyes when there are 4 skylights above the bed. And if you have trouble sleeping, lightwood furniture and the beautiful accent wall painted a rich, deep green will put you at ease.
