On our recent Malaysia trip, we were stuck spending a night in Singapore on the way home. It wasn’t for long, and I didn’t want to go all the way downtown. So I started looking for affordable (and awesome) Singapore hotels near the airport.

I come up with the Capri By Fraser Changi City Hotel and it ticked all the boxes – just one train stop from the airport, great reviews, it looked really great and it had my favourite feature for a hotel – it’s connected to a big shopping centre!

So I booked it and looked forward to our stay.

Capri By Fraser Changi City Review

The Capri Hotel Changi City Point is located in the Changi Business Park connected to the Changi City Point Shopping Centre and the Expo train station.

As mentioned above, this is one easy train stop from Singapore Changi Airport. However, it is a little bit of a walk from leaving the hotel front door to the platform. On arrival, as it was getting late, we used the Grab taxi app to get here. It cost SGD$11 and took less than 10 minutes.

The train on the way back was SGD$1.70 each.

There used to be a free Capri By Fraser Singapore airport shuttle, but this does not run anymore. There is Capri By Fraser Changi City parking for an extra charge.

To travel to the rest of Singapore is easy. Expo is on two train lines and you can be at key points of interest in Singapore without changing train lines.

Note: This hotel is also sometimes referred to as Capri By Fraser Singapore. There is because it used to be the only Capri By Fraser hotel in Singapore. However, recently another one opened in China Square so make sure you know which one you are booking!

My first impressions of this hotel were great. I felt like I was somewhere light and airy and quite trendy – in a good way, like it’s not even trying to be trendy 🙂

Check-in was very smooth and we were on our way to our room within minutes.

Capri By Fraser Changi City Singapore Rooms

Our twin Studio Superior room

We booked the cheapest room type which is a studio superior room. I was travelling with my son so I booked a twin room.

This room was very good so I am glad I didn’t pay more.

The first thing I noticed was how well designed and spacious it was – I am not used to spacious hotel rooms in Singapore especially at this price point.

By the front door, where usually you would find the cupboards in a hotel room, there was a small but functional kitchenette.

There was a sink, kettle, two hot plates, a microwave and a small fridge. There was also a simple, but good, array of equipment so you could self cater.

We were too keen to eat the great Singaporean food to cook here but it’s always nice to have the option.

The bathroom was cleverly designed and this is where we found the usual hotel cupboards complete with gowns, slippers, towels, luggage stand and safe. The shower is really big.

There was a good range of toiletries and one of the best smelling shower gels I have used. Just delicious!

In the bedroom area itself at Capri Hotel Changi Business Park was two very comfortable single beds, a desk area and a big TV with satellite channels.

The desk area was very clever. It could all be flat, or there were two panels that lifted up. One revealed a mirror and hair dryer making a great dressing table and another was a panel of power points and USB points. Just perfect!

King bed rooms also have a couch.

Another thing I loved about both this room and the hotel in general was the many signs with barcodes that you can scan if you need help. These put you through on messenger to staff who can help.

Really novel and clever!

There was nothing I didn’t like about our quiet, clean and comfortable room.

Capri By Fraser Changi City Buffet And Eating Options

The Capri By Fraser is home to its own restaurant and bar on the bottom level. It looked nice and prices aren’t crazy. Here is the menu on our visit:

There is also a breakfast buffet in the morning.

However, there are many restaurants literally just steps outside the hotel with bigger ranges and nice seating areas. We ate some great Japanese at Five. There is also a food court area in the Changi City Point shopping centre, and there is no way you are going to starve here!

Room service is offered and there is a menu in room but strangely not at breakfast time.

Capri By Fraser Hotel Singapore Facilities

There are some great facilities in this hotel including a big rooftop area on the second floor with a big swimming pool and many tables, chairs and lounges.

The pool has a kids’ area as well as a spa area. There are also steam and sauna rooms and a decent gym located here.

Something novel that I really liked in this Capri By Fraser Changi City Singapore review are the “Spin and Play Rooms” located on each level.

These rooms all feature washing machines and dryers (for an extra charge) as well as games to keep you occupied while you wait. The games vary per level from darts to playstations to massage chairs with iPads. It’s very clever and my son actually begged us to do washing!

The wifi is very good at the hotel.

If you have kids, right next to the hotel is a big playground which is part of the shopping centre. Above is a picture from our Spin and Play Room.

The shopping centre itself is a super handy position. You can be in it within a minute of walking out the hotel door and you can find many shops, eating establishments and supermarkets here. It really makes a stay at the Capri By Fraser Hotel Residences Singapore so easy

Final Words

I really enjoyed this modern and fun hotel.

While initially I only considered it thanks to its proximity to the airport, I would 100% consider staying at this Capri Changi Hotel Singapore for a longer stay. It’s just such a great price for Singapore, the room allows for self catering and there is a whole shopping centre complete with train station right there.

I also read that a Capri By Fraser Changi City staycation is a popular option for locals and I can see why.

So if you are looking for a convenient hotel to the airport in Singapore or an affordable base and don’t mind a bit of a commute to the main attractions then I really can’t recommend this Capri By Fraser in Singapore enough.
