Singapore Capsule Hotel Experience
Watch the Video Here!
I traveled solo to Singapore; it was my Scoot Air layover on route to Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam. I decided to stay there for a few days because, well with the amazing Singaporean food and awesome things to do here in Singapore, why not?!
While I would absolutely LOVE to stay at an amazing 5 star hotel in Singapore (first place that comes to mind… Marina Bay Sands! Man that pool looks so cool ya know… and I still have never been in it…. one day!), luxurious hotels in Singapore are out of my budget at the moment, so my version of the ”best hotel in Singapore” is something that is clean, convenient and budget-friendly.
Additionally, something that I am conscious of as a solo female traveler is to make sure my accommodation is situated in a location that is relatively safe. This wasn’t too much of a problem in Singapore, because for the most part I actually felt really safe when in Singapore. Regardless, if you are also a solo female traveler heading your way to Singapore, and you’re looking for a cheap / affordable female-only accommodation (they have female only dorms), give this place a go.
I stayed here for three nights, with complimentary breakfast everyday. (yes!) I didn’t actually book directly with the Cube Boutique Capsule Hotels, instead, I booked with hotels.com. Note that the capsule hotel is listed on agoda and trivago as well at competitive rates; I booked with hotels.com because I am a part of their ‘loyalty program’ Hope you enjoyed this Singapore Capsule Hotel review video 🙂
Cube Boutique Hotels @ Kampong Glam
Address: 55 Bussorah St, Singapore
* They also have a location in Chinatown: 76, 78 Smith Street, 2nd & 3rd Level, Singapore
What to expect?
A central location that’s perfect for short trips to pack as many things into your trip.
The Kampong Glam location has spacious capsules that would comfortably fit a person of my size (I’m 170cm tall, medium build). The bed was surprisingly comfortable and the overall design of the capsule was really well thought out with fold out tables and a small safe.
The capsules don’t have doors, instead there are blinds similar to the capsule you find in Japan.
Overall, everything you need is there, and although its true that many aspects could have been better. It was still a good stay. At its core, it’s clean, affordable, comfortable and nicely located.
Plus, the internet in Singapore was crazy fast! Something I would never be able to experience in Sydney.
