I want to Hotel 81 on July, 2015. It's very nice place, best location and not expensive. In the room is very clean and good smell, not big room and I think it ok to stay and sleep well. It's close to MRT station walk about 5 minute. And easy to find food near hotel. Thank you for reading.

Hotels in Singapore are supposed to be smoke free. My room certainly didn't fit this description as the stale smoke of cigarettes in my room was awful. Also the TV didn't work at all . Surprisingly, the shower had hot water which made my stay almost, but not quite , bearable!

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

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.
