As someone who prefers day flights over night, I found myself spending a long layover at Singapore’s Changi International Airport. My flight landed at 9:45pm, with the connecting flight at 7:10am. The transit hotel (The Ambassador) runs across all three terminals at Changi, however, with Terminal 2 and the newer Terminal 3 fully booked, there was only Terminal 1 available. This was booked some 2-3 weeks before the stay. The advice to anyone looking to stay would be to book ahead and early as we did see people at check-in being turned away with no place to stay for the night.
The hotel was easy enough to find thanks to the Skytrain and signage throughout the terminal. On arrival, check-in was a bit disorganised as they struggled to find a room (despite it being booked some time ago). I needed the room for 8 hours (10pm-6am) and was given to 2 hours free to make up for the noise due to renovations that were being done.
Luckily throughout the night the noise wasn’t bothersome. The room itself was well maintained- for an airport hotel is was spacious and comfortable. The lack of external windows may affect some people- it certainly takes away from the ambience but for a space to crash for the night the compromise is reasonable. Apart from the occasional building noise, there is no other noise- the rooms were well sound proofed.
The décor was pretty basic- a simple bed, and bathroom with a bath tub. This was the queen bed option, but there are smaller rooms available for less. Rooms can be arranged on pretty flexible basis- be it hourly or the full night. Before bed, it was good to be able to head down to the Silver Kris Lounge for a few drinks. The benefits of airport living. At 5:30am, the wake-up call was on-time and checkout was a breeze- the staff at the time seemed more interested in something humours on the computer than creating a fuss. The whole hotel was very close to the Skytrain to Terminal 2, so I was able to head to the Silver Kris lounge again for breakfast before takeoff on my ongoing flight.
Clean, spacious, comfortable and reasonably streamlined- I will be staying here again because it does exactly what it says. Don’t expect the full hotel experience and you won’t be disappointed, but if you just want a place to catch up on sleep until departure, the Ambassador is it.
Our impressions of Ambassador Transit Hotel Changi- Terminal 1
Location: Just near the Skytrain in Terminal 1- location doesn’t get much better than that
Sleep Quality: A bit of noise from the building but nothing the hotel could really control
Rooms: Basic, basic, basic but if you just want a bed in a room for sleep you can’t go wrong
Cleanliness: No problems
Service: Some disorganisation at check-in, but check-out and other services were faultless
