The rooms are cozy, the staffs are friendly and accommodating, the place is quiet and peaceful! Fragrance Hotel - Crystal is within proximity of Singapore's popular tourist spots. Bus station and MRT station is just 2-5 minutes walk. This hotel is highly recommendable specially to budget travelers and family group like ours. We will stay again in this hotel if... More

Check in was easy. The front desk took a while to find my booking as I had made a same day booking just 2 hours prior to arriving. Room is clean, free fast wifi, constant hot water, 2 free water bottles, free coffee and tea, comfortable bed and pillow, good air conditioning, not much noise. The location of the hotel... More

The location is near to bus station and minimarket. Free wifi for those who make an online reservation. If you took a night flight at thr last day, you can keep your bag in a luggage room for free, so you can manage your time to go around SG. Best value for a budget traveller. The room is relatively small... More

And you don't want any frills because there are none. Geylang is great for food so you can have a cheap stay in Singapore here (as long as you don't mind about the prostitutes!). The hotel is very basic but I managed a week there with no trauma. The staff were friendly and I got a better room as my... More

Avoid this hotel. We stayed here four nights and had the room not been pre-paid we would have left after one. First encounter was the desk clerk who tried to charge us SGP$ 10 per day for free WiFi. He then gave us a room that was about the size of a broom cupboard. Managed to blag a larger room... More

The hotel sits in a good spot in downtown Singapore (if you like to experience travel as a local.) Cabs are available just ask the Front Desk Officer who are all very helpful. The MRT is a few blocks away, you can walk and MRT is one of the most convenient transpo. The hotel hallways are neat and fragrant. The... More

This is hands down the most brutal hotel I have ever stayed in. As you will see from my photos the rooms are horrendous. Not as advertised. Staff are ignorant and lackadaisical and quite simply useless. Singapore is an expensive place to stay that's for sure but believe me when I say, if you have to pay a little bit... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Geylang
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city center, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colorful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
