Great location, clean rooms and fantastic helpful staff. We will be staying there again. Handy to local street food outlets, and public transport. The price was great value for Singapore too. We agree with Kate JS review. It was a red light area but we were not bothered. Only downside was there was not really any room for our luggage... More

I found geylang area surrounding with good food (especially night time) and easy access to public transportation. Princess' staffs are very polite and friendly, they gave a lot of travel tips to me and my friends. Appreciate and will definitely will come back again.

Yes, it's in the red light district and yes they rent rooms on the lower floors by the hour - so does every hotel in Geylang and it really won't affect you, (certainly not as a woman or a couple, maybe the girls will approach a single guy, I don't know). There are some maintenance issues which meant that we... More

2/4/2014 to 10/4/2014 – 8 nights Good value for money, well located for restaurants and quite close to a metro station (MRT). Rooms are small but clean and well appointed – a few English language TV channels, A/C, H&C water, kettle with tea and coffee, plus some free drinking water (although the tap water is safe to drink). Note: This... More

This hotel is good if you want to know the other side of Singapore, the dirty, smelly, drunk and prostitutes side. We travelled as a couple and we didnt mind the 10, 15, 20 prostitutes right in front of the hotel, what we really didnt like was that people smoke in the rooms. Staff was nice but not very useful...

I am a regular traveler to Singapore and was surprised to find this little gem... good location, and surprising value but it was the staff and their helpfulness and friendliness that made this stay a real treat. I booked on line and have had some shockers but this one is real good value.

Stayed for 2 nights during weekend in mid Apr 2014. This hotel is quite a bargain for less than 100 SGD per night, you can get a room with bathroom + bathtub. However, the bathtub is quite cramped, and it takes time to fill in the tub with mildly hot water. You should not fill in with max water flow,... More

Everything was good till I woke up in the middle of the night scratching my whole body! I believe there is bed bugs. I got bitten more than 10 times and with red spots all over my body. Besides that, I went to have my supper that night at the coffee shop. Before leaving the hotel, I left the room... More

Stayed one night in Dec 2013. Friendly staff however it is not a great area. Found it hard to get there as not close to MRT so had to taxi or walk a long way from the MRT. Great place if you want a lady of the night as they are literally down the road. Prefer to pay a few... More
