The Ibis on Bencoolen is a well located, with at least 20 bus routes stopping outside the door, or a 5 minute walk to Bugis MRT station.
Probably US$110 per night.
Within 10 minutes walk you can see Little India, Arab Street and Atlas, the latter cannot be described but do pop in for an early evening drink.
If you are so inclined there are at least 10 churches within 15 minutes walk.

The hotel's FB page says it is closed.

Premier Inn is not bad next to the Golden Mile arcade.

Hotel 81, they have about 20 scattered around the island, all should be around USD80 a night.

You can always try the more expensive hotels and try negotiating. I stay in the MO usually, but occasionally the Shangri la, and have on occasion got their prices down, depends largely on season, and more importantly what is on in town.

Good choice if you want a 4* level of accommodation for less than £100 a night, the sacrifice being that youíre a couple of miles outside of downtown Singapore. The MTR hasnít reached this part of Singapore (yet) but thereís a major bus stop right outside the hotel and you can buy an EZ-card to use public transport from the 7-11 mini-mart just over the road from the hotel. The Roxy also runs a complimentary shuttle to / from Changi Airport.

I'll second Hotel 81 if you just need somewhere to sleep at a low price. Stayed at the 'Cosy' on the western edge of Chinatown - and the rooms were indeed cosy - don't expect much space!! Also stayed at one on Bencoolen in 2015, but it does not seem to be listed anymore. I find that a good way to search accommodation and get indicative rates is via Google Maps.

The drawback here is the major roadworks right out front for the aforementioned MRT. It'll be great in 2022 when it's finished, but right now it's a real PITA.

Agreed, stayed there in January this year, not nice at all at the moment.

A point worth remembering about the inner city hotels, taxis will come to and drop you off at your hotel but if the road has double red 'No Parking' lines then a taxi will not stop for you should you try to flag one down in the street. Also the Indonesians have bought into the hotels in Singapore so some hotels have no bar, booze only served in the room and there is no pork on the menu at any time, it is worth checking before booking.

also applies to some Malysian owned hotel groups - some vile substitute for proper bacon/ham at breakfast.............

You are of course referring to Beef Bacon and Turkey Ham the cardboard replicas of the true porcine product.

Quite honestly if you are going to Asia go Asian, Roti Canai, Nasi Lemak, Char Kuay Teow, Nasi Biryani and a whole lot more.

Save the bacon and eggs until you are back in blighty.
