After many visits to Singapore, it was refreshing to discover an area we hadn't previously explored. Situated in a mostly residential part of the city, just 15-minutes drive from Changi (International) Airport, the Central Business District and Singapore’s famous Orchard Road, the hotel offers an affordable alternative to many of the big name 5-star hotels. Boasting very comfortable interiors, it's one of the few Singapore hotels with family rooms.
Joo Chiat and Katong are foodie hotspots, and right outside our hotel is a buzzing little strip of well-conserved, pre-war shophouses brightly painted and now home to iconic local food and drink establishments.
Hotel Village Katong is a great place for couples wanting to discover the true sights of Singapore, and the hotel has a strong focus on allowing visitors to live like a local. In fact, the hotel is currently offering a great special package, the "Peranakan Couple Experience", which includes:
• one night’s accommodation in a Deluxe Room
• unlimited WiFi access
• buffet breakfast for two at Katong Kitchen
• free 2-hour Peranakan experience at Kim Choo (not available from May to July 2016)
• late checkout at 3pm (subject to availability).
The package is only SGD195, and is valid until 31 December 2016.
Hotel Village Katong has a number of great facilities including an outdoor swimming pool and a cosy lobby lounge specialising in international coffees, desserts and pastries – so when you want downtime, you have everything you need right there.
