We stayed at the Changi Village hotel to break up a long flight to Korea with a 2 yr old. We took part in the Singapore government tourist scheme which gives discounts if you stay at specific hotels. Took the bus from the SIA office to the hotel which took about 15-20 min. The hotel fascade and reception area was quite nice. The reception staff gave as a teddy bear for our daughter which was very kind of them. The standard room we booked already had the cot set up as we requested. It was reasonable size but had a slightly mouldy smell as other reviewers have said. The decor and furniture were quite old and the walls were dirty. The sink and tub were both slightly cracked. The rooms need to be renovated. However, everything functioned ok and we got a decent night's sleep.
The pool on the 8th(?) floor was reasonably large although we didn't get to use it. The gym was surprisingly well equipped compared to other hotels I've seen.
As mentioned by others, there's no need to eat at the hotel if you don't want to as the hawkers stores are a 5 min walk away and very cheap (and good).
Unfortunately the SIA didn't send a bus for us the next morning as they told us, and we were expected to catch the hotel shuttle bus to the airport, but luckily there were many taxis available and the trip only took just under 10 min and cost around $15 so it wasn't too bad (but I'm still annoyed with the SIA,).
