The room is quite narrow, but the beds and bathroom are okay. Idk if this only happened in my room or not, but I can't adjust the water heater temperature so one time I felt like burning my skin lol. No breakfast provided but there are some food stalls outside. To use the wi-fi, you have to pay like SGD... More

On Sundays the largely foreign labourers of Singapore gather in this area to buy pills, sex and knock off goods. The streets around this hotel are swarming with creepy men who made my wife very uncomfortable by gawping, brushing past and trailing us on our walk from the station. Things didn't improve when we got to the hotel, it took... More

Some notes to be considered prior to booking: - The hotel is located in the Red Light District (as we found out through our taxi driver) - The stay (~50AUD/night) is cheap for a reason - The air conditioner is loud and practically broken - We found the front desk staff to be rude and dismissive - The room had...

The warm, gracious smiles of the Front office staff staff is one of the best things that sets Fragrance Hotel Crystal apart from the rest of the Hotel in Gaylang. All staff of this hotel was absolutely amazing and attentive. The Filipino Front desk Staff guy personally dealt with us it’s just walking distance from MRT Station to the Hotel.... More

Pimps and prostitutes walking around the front of the hotel as soon as it gets dark. Front desk Stuff are the worst when you go ask a question they make you wait for 3 to 5 minutes playing on their mobile phones, on top of that they give you rude response. This hotel will make you dislike Singapore. If you... More

We got to travel to Singapore for the first time last November. We stayed at the Fragrance - Crystals Hotel. We booked 2 rooms and stayed there for 3 nights. The accommodation was OK given the cheap price. The staff always changes the bed mattresses, towels, etc. Just a tip, make sure not to choose the last room or the... More

I actually thought I booked for Bugis Branch but it turned out wrong. I wanted to transfer since the venue of my conference was near Bugis. It did not occur to me that this was actually a Hotel near red light districts of Geylang. However, with all honesty it is very safe and so far I think I had a... More

A somewhat surprisingly well-appointed hotel for the price. Friendly, efficient and helpful staff. Lifts to room. Regular sized single room with queen-sized bed and dressing table. Cupboard with hangers, TV and en suite bathroom. Soap in shower, but just needed some shampoo. Hairdryer and toothbrushes, water tea and coffee provided. Tap water safe to drink. Within 10 min walking distance... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
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.
