Studio Apartments in Singapore: Expats Choice

Studio apartments are a very popular choice for professional singles or couples looking for an affordable place to stay in Singapore. Studio apartments typically consist of a large common living and sleeping area plus a small kitchen and bathroom. For added privacy, the living area may be separated from the sleeping area by a sliding partition. For some smaller studios, there may not even be a fully equipped kitchen with a gas stove. Typical studio sizes range from 500 sq ft to about 700 sq ft.

Studio apartments in Singapore are an ideal choice for professional singles who do not want to share an apartment or prefer to live alone. In fact, there are different types of studio apartments available. Some studios are in walkup apartments without any facilities while others have full condominium facilities like a swimming pool and gym. Most studio apartments in Singapore are located in the city or on the city fringe as the tenants of the apartments typically want easy access to the city. The popular East Coast / Marine Parade area also has a quite a number of new studio apartments in small developments of 4 to 5 storeys.

Types of Studio Apartments in Singapore

There is a wide variation of rental prices for studio apartment in Singapore. The lowest cost apartments are usually shoebox sized (300-400 sq ft), have no facilities and located away from the city centre and MRT stations. The higher cost luxury studio apartments are located around the Marina Bay / Shenton Way area like The Sail @ Marina Bay, The Icon, One Shenton and Marina Bay Residences. These have full facilities, seaviews and close to amenities and nightspots.

However, if you’re willing to travel a bit (say 15 to 30mins travel time) and stay further away from the Central Business District, you can save up to S$1000 per month in rent by choosing a studio apartment in Marine Parade or along the MRT train lines away from the city.

  1. Hi Consultant,

    I am planning to work Singapore soon, and my company is located in “Sqauare” which is closed to Changi Business Park. I want to find a small size studio apartment in Simei. Could you please find me a rental price of a small studio apartment below $1000?

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Best Regards,

  2. Hi RN,

    I am afraid it is impossible to find a studio apartment for rent below S$1000. To benchmark, around that area an HDB common room goes for 700 SGD plus and a master room goes for 850 SGD. If your budget is below, you should go for a room rent.
