We were accommodated in the Link hotel when Singapore Airlines changed our flight and offered accomodation due to the 26hr stopover that resulted due to the changes in flights.
The hotel is located in the city approximately 1hr from the airport although it was a busy Saturday and traffic was significant.
The check in was smooth and apparently we had been upgraded. However the room was small, extremely basic, bathroom was small and had my pet hate.....mouldy silicone. The room smelt musty but did have efficient air conditioning.
For some reason our room was entered by hotel staff whilst we were out and additional towels left even though we had sufficient towels already.
Had we had to pay ourselves for this room I certainly wouldn't have paid the £138 Singapore Airlines paid for the hotel.
It was located opposite the hop on hop off bus stop so we were able to take a tour and see a bit of the city.
Overall I would give this hotel a wide berth and pick something better
