What is the best area to stay in Singapore?

Central Singapore covers the Colonial District, Marina Bay, Bras Basah, and Orchard Road.

Ideal for first-time visitors, this area is handy for getting around the key sights with solid MRT connections further afield. With a range of serviced apartments on offer, this part of town is suitable for couples, families, and solo explorers. Little India and Kampong Glam (Arab Street) are ideal for budget-friendly digs while restaurants dishing up cuisine from South Asia and the Middle East keeps hunger at bay.

Rubbing shoulders with the CBD, Singapore River and Chinatown are two of the liveliest neighborhoods with ample dining opportunities and awesome nightlife.

Choosing accommodation in the Eastern Region of Singapore grants the convenience of a shorter transfer to Changi. Airbnbs in this neck of the woods are often tailored toward longer stays.

Wherever you stay in Singapore, you’ll benefit from the super-efficient MRT and LRT network.

Are Airbnbs illegal in Singapore?

Booking an Airbnb in Singapore is not illegal. However, hosts of Singapore Airbnbs are required to abide by specific regulations relating to housing laws in the city-state.

As a general rule of thumb, hosts of hotels or hostels must add the license number issued by the Hotels Licensing Board to their listing. Those with serviced apartments need to confirm that they are authorized by the Urban Redevelopment Authority.

Anyone renting public housing properties will first seek approval in writing from the Housing Development Board and rent for more than 6 months at a time. Hosts renting out a private residence on the marketplace may only advertise for a minimum of 92 consecutive nights. matador logo small 2017 bw@3
