Possible to find a central, relaxed and scenic area to stay?

My wife and I are spending 5 nights in Singapore in a little over a week and haven't had time to research. We are in our fifties and are looking to have a fairly relaxed time and see some sights. We would prefer a scenic or park location to a nightlife area if possible. What parts of town should we would we look to stay? Are there budget to midrange hotels in this area you could recommend? Is it a good idea to get a pool or is this not practical within our budget or necessary. Thanks for any help.

Hi, please state your budget in Singapore dollars? What is your idea of mid range?

There are some hotels that are near some nice parks but these tend to not be on the budget side.

Hoping for around 200 to 300 per night. Australian dollar on par with Singapore dollar I believe. Thanks.

The luxurious Hotel Fort Canning would be above your budget. Fort Canning Lodge is more of an old and basic budget hotel. Close by, there is Innotel Hotel but it has no pool. Further but within walking distance to the park are Rendezvous Hotel and 30 Bencoolen.

Ramada at Zhongshan Park is not within walking distance to an MRT station but there are many buses at the bus stop nearby to bring you to one of the MRT stations in the city.

Park Hotel Clarke Quay is more at the Robertson Quay area which is fairly quiet despite being along the Singapore River.

Goodwood Park Hotel might interest you. Safely away from nightlife type areas (Clarke Quay) but close to Orchard Road. It has a couple of pools, one in a quite nice and tranquil setting.

Novotel on Stevens may be worth a look. A short bus ride to Orchard and Stevens MRT station. There is also a free hotel shuttle. It is a new hotel set amid lush greenery. Mercure on Stevens shares some of the facilities but has smaller rooms.
