Anyway we rocked into Singapore at 3pm after our 7.5 hour flight and had been told to wait for someone, from our hotel, holding a sign - lots of people with signs but none for us :( after waiting for half an hour and people slowly disappearing we decided to take action, phone attempts, the info desk telling us to "wait a little longer" and finally through email we got a hold of them. An hour later (gah!) and we're being picked up, sort of a bummer start to our holiday but luckily things picked up after that. So the hotel we stayed at was called Vintage Inn, it was around $80 a night (cheap for Singapore) and this literally got us a bed in a capsule style hotel.
For $80 a night though you can't be too picky and the guys running it were definitely nice enough, it was just little things like the tardy pick up, not cleaning the bathrooms everyday, not letting us know when they did things like change the locks... you've been warned :)
They do provide breakfast though so that might undo any wrongs!
Would I recommend Vintage Inn? Yup, it's a good option for cheapskate travelers, it's situated in Little India which was a fun area to explore and as long as you're not wanting to spend time in your hotel (and have ear plugs) you'll be set!
By the way my first impressions of Singapore? Lego! I instantly thought of a little legoland, manicured lawns, neat and clean, lots of trees and flowers. Our driver told us that if a tree is knocked down for construction purposes in Singapore it's mandatory to plant a new tree, I wish we had that here in Australia! Also, since Singapore is pretty much on the equator it was hot and humid, which I personally loved :)
Okay next posts are going to be super photo filled, promise!
