Hotel Review: Holiday Inn Express Katong, Singapore

Next door to the quirky Hotel Indigo, which we have also written about it before, is a cheaper option for those in transit in Singapore or those simply searching for a more authentic local area to stay in whilst visiting this cosmopolitan city.

Holiday Inn Express Katong is not unlike its’ many properties in the US, it promises great value in a very interesting yet convenient neighbourhood, just minutes away on a cab from Changi Airport.

Whilst the rooms are on the smaller side, they do offer a very comfortable bed and a powerful shower. Every room comes with a smartphone which you can take with you while exploring the city so you don’t worry about roaming costs (yes, it includes unlimited data use and voice calls!).

Breakfast isn’t just croissants, scrambled eggs and coffee either, it offers a pretty impressive spread of hot food including a daily local specialty such as Fried Noodles or Carrot Cake!

There is a coin operated laundry for guest use, comfortable communal areas to work and meet, even an orange juice dispenser in the lobby!

If there is a minus to this property, it is how pathetically small the fitness centre is!
