It is always nice if you can afford staying in excellent Singapore downtown hotels. But what if you are on a tighter budget and still want to travel? There are great many possibilities, for example, you can rent B&B or even a flat. Before you do that, I suggest you take a look at TripAdvisor and read people reviews! There are plenty of options to choose from and there are real people reviews on every apartment that’s listed.
However keep in mind that All these places will be in a need of cleaning services. These are extra costs you have to bare in mind before you plan your expenses. For example, part time maid hired from this company Part Time Cleaner Singapore for one 4 hour session will cost you around S$152. You should better pick up a complete cleaning packages which will be cheaper.
So, if you want to have a pleasant vacation in Singapore while renting apartment, keep in mind there will be extra costs such as house cleaning. Still, it will be cheaper than staying in hotels because you can find a decent apartment for as little as $150/day and luxury condo will cost you little over $300/per night and there are usually 3-4 beds to sleep in.
