Need help please. Want to stay in 4 or 5 star hotel, with a view of Marina Bay so I can see the light show at night. We are staying for 5 nights, August 25 to 30, then embarking on the Sea Princess for a 14 night Asian cruise to Fremantle. We would like a balcony with open windows. Marina Bay Area looks as though it would be convenient, but with so much choice, I am getting confused. Perhaps there is something close by. I want to go to Raffles for afternoon tea, so which hotels are close enough to walk to it? Cost about $300 Australian is ok. We want to be able to walk to eateries and local attractions, plus be close to transport. One thing we want to see is the Zoo and gardens and natural beauty. Night life does not interest us. How does one sort out a room that is in a relatively quiet area?, as we both are light sleepers, so listening to parties and night clubs would not suit us at all.
Hope someone can make some good suggestions. Really looking forward to seeing Singapore.
More of a traditional accommodation, rather than a very modern one, would suit us.
Thank you in advance.
