Online hotel search guide BudgetHotels.sg recently refreshed their website to provide a more intuitive way to book inexpensive lodging in Singapore.

Designed to maximise mobile access and with faster loading times, the revamped site allows visitors to categorise the one- to four-star hotels in its database by price ranges such as

· Less than S$50
· S$50 - $79
· S$80 - $119
· S$120 - $149
· More than S$150

Maximising the website’s mobile responsiveness was a strategic business decision based on recent findings in the hospitality industry. According to Criteo’s 2014 Travel Flash Report released last September, travel bookings via mobile devices soared by more than 20% in the first six months of the year, and are growing much more rapidly than those booked on desktop computers. Smartphones and tablets accounted for 21% of hotel bookings.

"For the past three years, BudgetHotels.sg has been the go-to destination for travelers looking for value-for-money accomodation and activities in Singapore,” said BudgetHotels.sg founder Danny Lee. “We recognise that today’s travellers want the ease and convenience of making their trip arrangements on their mobile devices, so we strategically optimised our site to give them added flexibility, improved navigability and faster loading time.”
Detailed descriptions of featured properties include hotel facilities, room amenities and location (including a map). Proximity to subway stations is now indicated in terms of walking duration.
