Crowne Plaza Hotel. Stopover at Changi airport.

    Recommended Posts

    Hi

     

    I will be on my one way flight from London to Adelaide in 3 weeks time and have a 13 hour stopover in Singapore. I wanted to book at the ambassador transit hotel, but they are fully booked, so I have booked at the Crowne Plaza attached to terminal 3, instead.

    A couple of things I wanted to ask. Firstly, I am aware I will need to go through immigration since the hotel is land-side rather than in transit, but will my checked in luggage go straight through for my onwards flight to Adelaide without needing to pick up from baggage carousel? (Ie, I can just go straight to hotel after immigration with my cabin bag only) Both flights are Singapore airlines.

    Secondly, I have heard that this hotel does day rooms, but I can't find any information on what they actually consist of online. I went ahead and booked a normal room anyway since my flight arrives at 9.30am and leaves at 11.00pm, but I would be interested to know for future reference. Does anyone know?

    finally, do you need to fill out 2 immigration cards since I will effectively be entering Singapore albeit for only 12 hours!!

     

    thanks

    I enjoyed this hotel. Your bags will stay in transit as they will be checked all the way to Adelaide. You will have to fill out Singapore's entrance card and give back the bit when you reenter departure lounge.

    Thanks for that info. Did you stay overnight there or did you stay in the 'day rooms'? I'm still no clearer in finding out whether they are cheaper and what's included!

    Was it plain (scuse the pun!) sailing? And was it easy to find?

     

    cheers

    Not sure on your questions, sorry, but I was really impressed with the hotel. If you swim definitely pack your swimsuit in your cabin bag, the pool is really lovely. I remember the breakfast was good too overlooking the pool. It was also super easy to find! I had an amazing 24 hours there to refresh and recharge a couple of years ago between an Asian business trip and a trip back to the UK for Christmas... I may have fibbed to my former employer about my flight times to ensure I got to stay at the hotel there :)
