I will be travelling to Singapore with my wife and 2 children(6 yrs and 11yrs old) in first week of July 2015.I have booked tickets for the same.
Should I proceed to book hotel now or it would be ok to book hotel in May 2015(I will be booking hotel under advance purchase offer to get discounted rates).Is i ok to book under advance payment offer?
Also Please suggest some budget hotels-I need only 1 room with twin beds-pls suggest hotels which allows us to stay in one room without any additional charges(no extra bed required )
Also Plan our itineray for 6 days,i can start sightseeing on Day1 after 3 PM.
And when should i apply for Singapore Visa?

Yes it is okay to make an advance payment to hotel. Check user reviews on bookings.com, tripadvisor.com.
check if hotel has facebook page. and reviews on page. make sure that hotel is genuine

There is always a trade off assaciated with early booking. You may not get the required hotel if booked late. So no one can really predict future. But all hotels will not be at booked.

Also Please suggest some budget hotels-I need only 1 room with twin beds-pls suggest hotels which allows us to stay in one room without any additional charges(no extra bed required )
Not sure about this.
