“perfect for a quick nap and shower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

transit hotel has all the basic amenities for a short nap and shower during a stopover. Rates are charged per hour so is perfect to freshen up after a long flight. The hotels are basically converted warehouse space so dont expect hotel standard furnishing. There was no window in the room we stayed in but the bathroom and toilet facilities were excellent. lots to do around the hotel as singapore airport is a city in itself. Plenty of food and drink nearby.

watch out for signs to the hotel as they are not clearly displayed - but otherwise ask the information desks for location details. Make sure to call ahead and confirm your booking as the rooms are quite busy throughout the day. check in is quick and done on the spot.

Room Tip: advise to stay in the hotel located in your departure terminal as the commute from 2 to 3 is about 3...

The Transit Hotel is a great alternative when you don't need your main luggage. I've stayed many times, especially if your connecting flight is an early morning. You can take a 6 hour block or just add as needed; explore all the restaurant choices. The rooms are always clean, very quiet and with tea/coffee and wall TV that's all you need if tired and flying on again soon.

Very conveniently located in terminal 2, just follow the signs to the "airport hotel". We did not make reservations and stayed on the day after Chinese New Year. We were so glad they had availability! Upon entering the room I was struck by how clean the bedroom area was, although completely basic... no pictures or wall hangings at all. That's fine, I was just there to sleep. The bathroom was clean with the exception of the shower drain which was full of nasty hair... which made me opt for wearing shower shoes. You can unfortunately hear hallway noise (people talking, opening/closing doors) very clearly and the airport wifi does not reach the rooms. Otherwise, a very comfortable stay. You may also need to know that rooms are rented by 6 hrs, but we added an hour to make 7. Affordable option considering this is Singapore!

For an overnight stopover in Singapore that is not long enough to make it worth while wandering out of the Changi Airport, the Ambassador Hotel provides a temporary refuge. The rooms are very much in demand so better make a reservation well ahead of your travel date. Their web site suggests two weeks before arrival.
Even the well planned trip is not immune from Murphy’s Law as I found myself walking into the hotel recently asking for a room. As expected the rooms were fully booked except for the budget rooms, which I assumed were unoccupied because of the on-going renovation of which the guests were earnestly warned of possible noise in the room. But I took the risk and was not bothered at all. I must have been in deep slumber after a long flight.
The budget room is very basic but adequate for a restful sleep. The bed is not the best but good enough, the room and common bathroom and toilet are clean. The room has one single bed, a flat screen TV and complementary bottle of water but no free wifi service in the room.

Very good for what it is a transit hotel; recently refurbished room; very clean; no internet access, but free outside hotel in terminal; not normally 'picky', but pillows ridiculously large and firm; rooms available with or without windows.

Good, clean room, but no internet connection and bad TV reception. Good for sleeping and nothing else. Also, construction is going on and can be noisy. No refund once you decide how many 6 hour blocks you are booking.
