There are many very nice four star hotels in Singapore that could be passed off as five stars ones. The definition of four star to five star hotels are not exactly clearly drawn, as such, you can probably find five star standards at a four star Singapore hotel. Although there is a surge in hotel rates for most Singapore hotels, there are still many that offer the same level of accommodation and services at great prices. You just need to look harder.
One such hotel would be The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. The building where the hotel is now was formerly Singapore’s General Post Office. With the historical building structure, and its close proximity to the Marina Bay area, on top of being just within the Central Financial District, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is a very popular choice amongst business travelers to Singapore. It is also only about 10 to 15 minutes away from Orchard Road, and less than 10 minutes from the Marina Bay Sands by foot, making it a great location for the leisure visitors as well.
With over 400 hotel rooms of different categories like the Courtyard rooms, Heritage rooms, Quay rooms and the Straits Club rooms, the hotel offers its guests with different options for their stay. From some of the rooms, you can get panoramic views of the quay area. Within the hotel one can also find some excellent restaurants, where you can enjoy your food together with the city skyline.
Another interesting four stars Singapore hotel would be The Scarlet Hotel. This recently completed hotel which was restored from several pre-war shop houses is at Erskine Road, which is part of the conservation shop houses around the Tanjong Pagar area. Despite being small in physical size, the hotel is still able to offer facilities like the swimming pool and the gym. The hotel rooms are also very tastefully designed. One should check out the restaurant within the hotel which serves excellent food on top of providing you great dining atmosphere.
The hotel is within walking distance to the Central Financial District and also Chinatown heritage area.

Hotel Grand Pacific is another four star hotel which you can consider for your stay in Singapore. This hotel has been recently refurbished and upgraded.
