As one of the cheapest hotels you can find in singapore, this place isn't awful but it also isn't too pleasant. Firstly, the whole building has an overwhelming stench of cigarettes that sticks in the back of your throat. The bed sheets are awful, basically threadbare. Although the staff on reception did a few things we asked i.e early check... More

Just go to Hotel 81 Princess a few blocks away. Better value for your money. Rooms here are too cramped. Wifi disconnects from time to time. Stayed for 5 nights and we have no closet or drawers to store our things into. Location-wise, it's just a short walk to the bus stop going to the MRT and it's near a... More

The hotel is located in the red light district but didnt bother me at all. In fact, i never saw girls publicly hanging out around the streets at night. The area has a lot of eateries and there's lots of durians around. We checked in late and was bothered by the strong smell of cigarette smoke on the lobby of... More

Staying at Hotel 81 Hollywood is good for average to low budgeted traveler. The location is accessible, and being in this vicinity (Geylang,) Many would say that this is the "Red light district" of SG. It's all good to me, but not for my partner, the staff can communicate and convey their thoughts in a simple manner, our air-con is... More

Cheap (less than 50 SGD) and staff are helpful and easy check in process and clean. 10 min walk from Stadium MRT train station. Still Kallang Wave Mall at Stadium is quit lovely. Getting a taxi used the mobile App.

Last month i went to singapore and stay in this hotel. The room is really small and the distance to the MRT Station is a little bit far. The location is in geylang area which is famous with prostitution and nightlife. Nothing special from this hotel in my opinion

For Singapore it is a budget accommodation solution. Yet if one expects confort - might end dissapointed. The rooms are exremely small, without any lockers. I couldn't control the air condition. The staff was polite. WiFi had limited traffic. Also the quarter is kind of...explicit.

For pricey Singapore you get what you pay for. I stayed here for 3 nights and as a base to sleep with good access to wi fi it is fine. But if you are a nervous traveller and want to stay in a safer area probably avoid Geylang altogether. Yes, it is an interesting area but during the day very... 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.
