• Staying In A Luxurious Suite In Singapore | Sofitel Singapore City Centre

    luxurious suite in singapore

    Our few days in Singapore didn’t really go to plan to start with as our accommodation really let us down. Until we found this luxurious suite in Singapore centre. With our first booked accommodation being booked via AirBnB, as soon as we got in the taxi is was bad news. Our driver told us the accommodation was in Johor Bahru which is part of Malaysia. It is near the border of Singapore, connected via a causeway which takes 2 hours to get through. This would also mean going through immigration to get in and out of the city everytime.

    WE STAYED IN A LUXURIOUS SUITE IN SINGAPORE

    We struggled to find a space in any cheap hotel or hostel in the city until we came across one which we just booked for a night to tie us over as we had been travelling for over 13 hours but it was quite away from the city centre. We spent ages scrolling through hotels but most of them were far too expensive until I came across what looked like a really nice apartment with a king size bed and a futon bed for me so it said it was perfect for 3 adults.

    As soon as we get there, we knew it wasn’t right. Firstly we struggled to find someone to help us check in and after about 45 minutes of reading and re-reading the instructions given to us and still no luck my mum found a guy eating his lunch who just so happened to have the key to the room. As soon as the door opens, we knew instantly that it was not suitable for 3 adults and no space for the futon to go as the futon was not already in the room.

    We stared at the room wondering where it was. After asking the guy, he came back with a mat which was definitely not the futon.  We spent ages trying to delegate with the guy that this is not suitable for 3 adults nor was it what we booked through Booking.com. We refused to stay there and my Dad left the apartment to search for somewhere else we could stay whilst me and mum stayed scrolling online trying to find any other places to book.

    My Dad came back from searching for hotels, we left getting in a taxi and not looking back. Once my Dad showed us where we were staying the heart eye emojis appeared. The lovely reception staff and manager offered us a suite. They kindly charged it the same as a regular room. My god our suite was beautiful.

    Singapore Accommodation
    Avoid AirBnB’s in Singapore – they are a serious no go! All of the AirBnB’s in Singapore are located in Johor Bahru which is in Malaysia. You would have to go through immigration and it can take 2 hours to enter and leave Johor Bahru.

    We definitely paid for the quality but I really think you need to in Singapore. Avoid AirBnB’s like the plague there as they are all based in Johor Bahru (“JB”). There it’s either cheap hostels or expensive luxury hotels. It is very hard to find in between accommodation that is good quality.

    Be sure to book this gorgeous hotel and suite when you visit Singapore. Book here.
