Hotels along Singapore River

Good Reviews of Family Hotels along the river of Singapore

Stay in any one of the hotels along Singapore River and enjoy learning about the rich history of this small but historically significant waterway.

The river runs about 6 km from the Central Area in southern Singapore before emptying into the ocean. A quiet area for most of history, the Singapore River came alive when Sir Stamford Raffles arrived in 1819 and set up a trading post for the famous British East India Company.

The trade business boomed over the next century and a half before grinding to a halt when the container berths opened at Tanjong Pagar in the 1970's. The old Shophouses along the bank were converted to pubs and restaurants, making the Singapore River a hip and trendy travel destination.

Singapore River is perfect for those who enjoy the nightlife, with popular destinations such as the Boat Quay, Clark Quay, and Robertson Quay. Two MRT stations make it easy to travel throughout the area, or take a Singapore River Cruise along the river and bask in the glow of the night scene. Along the Singapore River hosts numerous lodging options in every budget, from cheap hostels to luxury hotels.
