There are 3 or 4 hotels in this strip about 10-15mins from the airport that do a free shuttle from Changi, so I usually stay at one of these when I do a 1 night transit.
So far, the Mercure probably has the best rooms, but the staff were terrible there. The Village Katong staff were super helpful and efficient, the rooms are still really nice, and they provide all of the stuff that makes the quick stop bearable.
They also do city tours (free) when you book direct, and had some good promos running when I was there (upgrades to Club rooms with heaps of extras).
Overall, a good one and heaps cheaper than Mercure or Crowne Plaza. I’ll be here again for sure. – 2Adam2 of Australia at TripAdvisor
