Although a little out of the way, the buses & trains once mastered, made moving around easy. The room was a bit small, but OK & the price for Singapore was reasonable. The staff were friendly & helpful. There was no restaurant in the hotel but plenty of budget choices handy.

The hotel was pretty decent considering the price of my stay . No smoking in rooms so had to take many trips down the elevator windows don't open and your right bang in the heart of red light area . I had trouble catering for western food while I was there and rooms had no fridge so no way of... More

I've decided to book this hotel during my short visit at Singapore. The price is quite cheap and I need a private room as better option than a dorm room for privacy The hotel was conveniently situated at busy Geylang area, it qas very easy for me to find foods, mini markets and everything in here. One biggest downfall was... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at this hotel for five nights this week. The rooms are very small and basic, but clean and well maintained. Found the staff very helpful and friendly too. Unfortunately, the area is not the best.. Not much food or shopping around and about 20min walk to the MRT. You should also be aware that this... More

It's quite far from the subway station. Hotel is located in the overcrowded part of the city, quite dirty and full of street sellers. A lot of local small shops and canteens around. Room was good and quiet. Nice to stay for a day or two but not more.

We stayed there for 1 night only. Simple hotel with cute room but well equipped. Very friendly and helpful staff. But, the hotel is actually quite far from the city and quite away from the MRT. You have to walk like 15mins. Other than that, it was a nice stay. TQ

In my opinion this hotel is good for backpackers and business travelers. Because this is good budget hotel with clean room with required bathroom amenities. I stay here 2 Nights and found my experience is good. Bus stand is just few minutes walk away from the hotel and MRT is also not far. Only draw back of this hotel is... More

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Location was very good -- great restaurants nearby, 10 minute walk to the train, direct train line to the airport and also close to downtown. Room was dingier and dirtier than the hotel's pics online -- burn holes in sheets, stains on curtains and towels, hair and dust on floors, mold on bathroom ceiling... More

Geylang is the only place in Singapore where you can find a cheap hotel. There are many that are horrendous where you are better off on the street. This hotel was cheap (on agoda.com) Room was clean Room a fair size Bathroom in a good condition. For 50 sing dollars you are not going to get luxury. But you do... 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.
