Let's enjoy your trip with some tips for choose Singapore Hotels in District 1

1. Top 4 tips for choosing the best suitable hotels in your trip

  • Budget

First of all, pay attention to money in your wallet. Budget is often the determining factor in choosing the right hotel for you especially as it’ll take a huge chunk out of your holiday spending. Once your budget for the trip is determined consider how much you might want to allocate to the hotel. Would you prefer to spend a little less in order to spend more on activities, travel and dining out? Or is spending on a luxury hotel the top priority.

If you do choose to spend on the hotel, which category of room will be in your budget? On a city break you should choose a lower category room as you know you’ll be exploring and out and about so you won’t use the room so much. This does depend on the destination and the value for money offered – for example at Hotel Arts Barcelona a huge Club Room Suite fitted our budget whereas by contrast the Four Seasons Florence cost about the same for a much smaller room. Both are top hotels in their respective city but it happens that Italy is much more expensive than Spain in general.

For a beach or resort break, you might splurge a little more on the room that you be spending more time there than if you were in the middle of a city. For instance, in a place like Bali we would usually go for a villa with a pool as you know food and activities will cost less there anyway. It’s all about balancing up the options and knowing what’s going to suit you best.

And also remember to check offers on the website or other deal sites. Is can be less expensive if you pay up front, go off-season or mid-week. Check out this post on how to travel in luxury for less.

  •  Location 

The next step is determining the location of your hotel. Choosing the location may be a necessity – you need to be close to the airport or a wedding venue  – but most likely the location will be based on personal preference.

If it’s a city break do you want to be in the hub of town or would you prefer a quiet more neighbourhood area. Do you want restaurants, bars and shops right on your door step or would you rather have some quiet?

If it’s a break that combines city and beach what’s your preference? Or maybe you want to do both? In Barcelona we wanted to be right on the beach whereas in Melbourne we opted for the city. Will you be hiring a car? How easy is it to get public transport? Is the city walkable? All important to consider when you’re determining location. In a huge city like New York or Toyko what neighbourhood will be right for you?

Similarly on a beach break or in a resort what are you looking for? Do you want the resort to be on a public beach so that it’s lively with lots of restaurants. Or a private beach so it’s quiet and peaceful. Or would you prefer to be on a cliff top? How important is it to have a good view? Do you want to be close by to the hub of the resort or will this be too touristy?

I always check a hotel location on Google Maps before I book it to check the location and see what else is nearby. I also always check how far an hotel is from the airport especially if I’m paying for a transfer. Of course you don’t want to be too close to the airport but you also don’t want to be three hours away unless the hotel is really special and worth making that trip.

  • Style 

We all know what style we prefer and what suits us best. If luxury travel is your style, like me you may choose a classic luxury hotel, a boutique hotel or a design hotel. Do you prefer branded luxury or independent. I like all of these styles as for me the most important thing is a sense of place as some luxury hotels are so generic you could be anywhere.

A classic luxury hotel will usually provide the absolute best service so that may be your priority. A boutique hotel may have more personal touches and be more intimate or homely whereas a design hotel is often unique in style and architecture.

There are particular hotels brands that I love as they prioritise the sense of place and often offer experiences unique to that location. Four Seasons, Rosewood, Belmond and Aman are all big international brands that offer a bespoke and personalised experience. I also love Singita, AndBeyond, Six Senses which are smaller hotel groups that always deliver.

  • Amenities

Particular amenities are vital for some people, so make sure you double check the website to ensure that your accommodation has everything that you need. There are a lot of amenities you will like: spa and hair salon,wi-fi, child friendly facilities and a kids club, good quality restaurant and breakfast in the hotel etc

If you’re there for business travel you may require your hotel to include everything especially meeting space, is the a phone in the room and a fridge? Do they have a gym? Is there a car park? 24 hour reception? Can you get a club room? A VIP concierge? Is there laundry service? We’ve even been to hotels that provide with your own car to get around.
