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

We have been staying here each time we are in Singapore as it is centrally located to the various eateries, mode of transport is also easily accesible. The front desk staff are also friendly and helpful. Rooms maybe small but are well kept by the housekeeping staff.

Don't to much expecting that this hotel will given you a good service since they only open for particular purpose However their location is strategic, meaning easy to us yo find any kind of restaurants along the area of geylang even though at midnight time.

Remember 'you get what you pay for'. The room was humid and very smelly, the bathroom was tiny and no shower curtain so water all over the floor. Aircon was good although you could not change the temp. The check-in staff member was not friendly, but we did speak to others that were. The room was very small, lucky we... More

Our room was humid smelly and small, minimally room to move around the double bed, not really for luggages but we managed because we were on a budget travel. The location 1km walk from Kallang MRT (metro station) is good. It's on the same line then the airport. So again good for the budget, just buy a EZlink card at... More

Stayed for 2 nights in July 2014. For the price (in a horribly expensive city like Singapore), the hotel is quite nice. Friendly staff. Comfortable (although somewhat small) room. Decent WiFi and no problems with hot water or A/C. There are a number of nice, reasonably priced restaurants in the area. Lengthy walk (mile or so) to the Old Airport... 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.
