Geylang at its best. The staff are very courteous and professional. Uou are made to feel right at home the moment you step through the door. The hospitality is unsurpass for the typical staite Singapore persona. The night scene is reminiscent of colonial Singapore.

Part of a chain in sinapore, old buildings cleverly renovated, modern design rooms. Small but innovative, clean with good wifi. Probably not best location, I knew it was redlight district and although the venues are descreet streets are like a zoo, especially at weekend. However metro is close by and your downtown in 4 stops. Price for singers is unbeatable... More

Don't be fooled by the pics this place is a dump a glorified brothel/motel no need for a refurb it needs knocking over and rebuilding in a different location. On the up side staff we're amazing I think they felt our pain not a place you would take man women or beast!

We were arriving in Singapore at past midnight and because I was loathe to pay $300 or more for just a night's sleep we booked a room at Hotel 81 (Premier) Star in Geylang which is about halfway between Changi airport and the city for about $100. It could not have been more suitable, The facilities are basic. The room... More

I discovered this hotel chain on Booking.com and Agoda.com and noted I could save a lot more if I chose one of their locations a bit outside the center. Being Singapore, I didn't need to really worry about the neighborhood, although Geylang has a reputation for prostitutes, some of which will try and grab you on the street during the... 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.
