Cheap hotel, safe neighbourhood

My son has around the world ticket, with few stops. He plan to travel for 6 weeks , as that's much he is free from his Uni over the summer.
His ticket is :London-Singapore-Auckland-Rorotonga( Cook Islands)-LA-London..
Everywhere he arranged to stay with friends but Singapore, as is his first time in SEA , he done lots of reading on the area now we just need to find good and cheap-ish place to stay for 4 nights in the city.
We know that the city is very clean and safe, yet we would like your opinion on area where to stay.
Can you gave us some pointers please?
We keep looking on line but is bit confusing.
We would like to be central as possible, clean and no too expensive.
Any ideas greatly apriciated. Many thanx

There are plenty of hotels in Singapore. You can use website like to narrow down your choices.

Hotels near the city centre are more expensive. There are cheap hotels under the Fragrance brand or Hotel81 but aren't highly rated.

Hi Valentina a REALLY expensive country, so he would have to be careful regarding budget hotels. I have a friend who stayed in a couple, and were all bedbug infested
Areas like Little India, Chinatown are usually popular
Personally I think that Orchard Road is better

We have stayed here, and it was great..............but again, not cheap

He should look on Singapore........... which also shows on map where hotel is, and has reviews

Google up Ibis hotels, Singapore, these are always kept to a good standard, well located and in Singapore you will not have to walk far to a subway station.

check out on or other web pages such as I would expect Singapore to have several Ibis Hotels.

Thank you everybody for your input, we will need to up the daily budget, as it seems what is cheapish in Europe is non starter in Singapore. :(

Transport on metro is cheap and leg power costs nothing in this small city. The large shopping centres have Food Halls with quality meals, all fairly cheap on the budget.

Have a great holiday

Actually Singapore has long been known as one of the world’s most expensive places to visit, thus, it is not easy to find a high-quality, full-furniture, convenient and popular boutique hotel in Singapore
Why dont you try this site
there are 7 cheap hotels to consider. $36 to $98/nite.
Hope this helps!
