Accommodation question

Postby irishinsingapore » Wed, 04 Jan 2012 8:05 am

Hi
My husband and I used to live in Singapore and are stopping by for 2 nights next June on our way to Oz. The thing is this time we are bringing our 3 kids (ages 3, 2 and 6 months). I have checked and any hotel I speak to wants me to rent 2 rooms as max occupancy is 2 Adults and 2 Kids which to me sounds a bit crazy. I was wondering whether anyone knew of any short term holiday apartments which are available for rental by the night? Or anyonewith any other ideas to avoid having to rent 2 rooms in a hotel? How do other familys of 5+ figure this one out?
Thanks
Irish

Strange, don't hotels work the same way like airlines, where infants are not counted?

They normally do at least from my experience.
OP, did you mention to them how old is the youngest child?

Each hotel company has their own policy regarding children in hotels, look for hotels that let children stay free.

often you can find hotels that consider anyone less than 7 years old a child, who can stay for free.

I would recommend that you use booking.com they have this info. for all the hotels.

Good luck, as I am going through the same search.
