We are aware of the bad side of the hotel, but then again we only want a bed to sleep at night and we also know that we get what we paid for but i never expected rudeness to the highest level from the front desk staff. It was not directed to us but we saw how they mistreated a... More

If you're on a budget and merely need a place to sleep, you can consider this hotel. Rooms and premises are clean. Wifi is not that good but if you don't need to be wired for a long time, it does the job. Rooms are not sound proof though, to the point that one can here slamming of doors, people... More

Environment was horrible, rooms were so small it's insane, no proper shower and the whole hotel absolutely stinks of cigarette smoke... More

Stayed here for just a day before catching a flight to my other destination, didn't find much issuess apart from the smell of smoke, can't figure out up-to now bcoz even the surroundings smelt the same. Didn't have any issues with the staff all I wanted was provided on a timely manner. I think it's a place worth staying. Caution... More

Hotel 81 Orchid is not a spanking boutique hotel- it is old and the rooms have no sound-proofing whatsoever. I wasn't able to sleep the 3 nights I stayed there with my bff. You could here people talking, shouting, screaming til the wee hours of the morning on the entire length of my floor.!!! The cleaning attendant or whoever was... More

Nothing pleasant about this hotel, even though no smoking is permitted in the building the whole building reeks of smoke. There were cigarette holes in the bedding, rooms were old and tiny, my parents in law had to get book another separate room as it was too small for the 2 of them. Staff were rude and unprofessional, tried to... More

The room is clean and provided with basic toiletries. Have teeth brush but no toothpaste. No slippers provided so will feel cold when with bare foot. Wifi signal is good on first day but a bit slow on second day. Nearest MRT is Kallang/ Aljunied. the hotel just 2 bus stop away from the above MRT but have to walk... 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.
