The hotel is in a great location. The place is very clean and the staff are very good, professional. I will stay there again for sure. Many good restaurants near. This is a budget hotel so do not expect a 5 star. Near the train station and easy to get to from the airport.

We booked this hotel for two nights and had a late check in. Around the hotel there is the Red Light District. Our room was very small. Also the bathroom. The bed was comfortable. Everything O.K. for the price. Many restaurants close to the hotel. Some of them open 24 hours and serve good food for reasonable prices. 10 minutes... More

the hotel is cheap and in the Geylang Red Light District of Singapore, there will be prostitutes out the front from the early afternoon to very early morning and there will be constant short time use of the rooms, but if this is a problem for you then your staying in the wrong part of Singapore.

We had 24hrs in Singapore in between flights and were low on cash and super tired after our holiday. It cost about $20 in a cab and only about 20min to get to the hotel from the airport and they had no problem with us checking in at 1am. The room was clean and quite small but for us it... More

Side by side hotels from the same company. The staff was nice and tried, but there were problems. Rooms were cramped and not comfortable. The big problem was the night life. I was approached several times for "sex", all while walking with my wife. I experienced this from about 6:00 pm til about midnight. At the time we stayed there... More

The room is way good enough - fast free wifi, the staff, quite helpful - but best of all is the interesting, alive neighborhood. Plus it only cost $40 USD/nt. Just around the corner I was selling some t-shirts i brought from the states at a sidewalk 'flea market' - prostitutes where abundant and it was a hoot to watch... 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.
