I stayed at Star for 2 weeks. The personnel was always attentive and helpful. The room was always clean and well kept. Did't have problems getting around from the hotel. The local food at the hawkers was very good and although within the Geylang Area, did not feel security was an issue. I will recommend this hotel for budget travelers.

The hotel at the entrance was very clean. The lobby was dim with Japanese-style design. The room had the same Japanese-style, small but very functional. The fact that the sink was placed outside of the bathroom was quite inconvenient if you're travelling with not too close partner. The sleep quality was very good. I remember sleeping soundly during my 2-night... More

A little bit scared by the surrounding if you arrive in the late night. Good attitude of staff at reception counter. Room small but look clean. But some improvement on the cleanliness required as hair found around the rubbish bin, dust on the fridge door and stain on the bed sheet. Air conditioner quite noisy but functioning well. Free wifi... More

After reading reviews of similar hotels in this area I decided to stay overnight during a transit stop over in Singapore. Yes it is in a red light district which if travelling with kids I would probably avoid but as a couple or business traveller I think it adds abit of 'colour' to the stopover :-) The room was clean,...

A very favourable first impression, smart reception area and a friendly welcome. This hotel has been recently and tastefully renovated. My room (superior) was very clean and nicely decorated with all the extras the average traveller needs, TV, refrigerator, room safe, hair dryer and kettle. The free Wi-Fi worked very well in the room. Bed was very comfortable and room... More

This hotel is located in the Geylang Area (reputed for the Red Light District). If you put aside the sleaze, and just focus on the amenities- this hotel has it all. The Geylang area is known for great local food at affordable local prices. This hotel offers the perfect price in Singapore especially in comparison to space area and locality.... More

Spent a week here, the second day booked a late check out the last day for 5.00 pm for S$40. My flight chnged the next day, the Mt Kelud business. When I informed the reception my check out would be 0900 as opposed to 1700, NO chance of a refund - and this was a few days ahead of time.... More
