1. Re: Singapore accomodation

Hello Tracey,

Airbnb and similar listings are Illegal in Singapore, for less than 3 months lease. In order not to put yourself in trouble from the very beginning of your trip, please choose only legal accommodation options.

If you need a hotel recommendation please state your budget per room per night in SGD?

Suggestions will flow like a river...

2. Re: Singapore accomodation

There isn’t B & B type accommodation as Australians would know it in Singapore. If you clarify what you need, eg. Is this just for yourself and you want a single room with a single bed at a small hotel, or a nice 4 Star hotel for 2 adults, or are you travelling with family (including a couple of young children or teens) and want a 2 or 3 bedroom Serviced Apartment, etc.

There are many hundreds of accommodation options so help us help you by giving some specifics of your needs, and yes I’d agree about giving a figure in local currency Singapore dollars SGD$ per room per night. Just look on a currency converter website and convert then let us all know.

It’s not just Airbnb, but all private apartment rentals listed on other sites too such as booking.com, hotels.com, Agoda and TripAdvisor. They all should not be booked due to the Singapore housing laws.

I hope you have found a nice hotel or one of the legal Serviced Apartments. Some people unfamiliar with Singapore can’t tell the illegal ones from the legal ones.
