List 28/52 – The Good and Not So Good About Staying at the Hangout @ Mt Emily in Singapore

Today we’re moving on from Singapore. We’ve realised that when travelling with kids the place you choose to stay is even more important than ever. This place, Hangout @ Mt Emily,  was pretty much perfect for our needs. First the good:

1. There was a good size room with four single beds and a private bathroom with a huge shower.

2. The breakfast was included and was much better than I had expected. Hot and cold buffet, juice, toast, coffee.

3. The rooftop area had great views over Singapore and a ‘standing’ pool that was perfect for the kids to splash in.

4. The ‘veg out’ common area was great for hanging out in with Lil while Ed napped in the room. It had a tv, computers, pool table, bean bags, cushions, tea and coffee.

5. The location was quite central and it was a pretty easy walk to the start of Orchard Rd or down to Little India on the other side of the hill.

The Not So Good:

1. The hotel is at the top of a hill and reached by a steep flight of stairs if walking. It wasn’t a big deal but was a bit of a hassle with tired kids and sometimes with a stroller.

2. For a budget hotel the restaurant downstairs at night time is quite fancy and expensive. Not somewhere we were comfortable taking two tired kids.

I would definitely stay here again. We booked it through and paid $AUD155 a night. Singapore is expensive for accommodation by Asian standards but this was a great starting base for our trip.
