Its 10-15 minutes walk to the MRT station. +Its near to restaurants. Clean rooms with everything you need. Wifi works good. -smells like cigaretts in our room (bad luck?) Prostituts in the streets at night. Good for the price! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Seeing the other reviews on here makes me think that either I had a good experience or other people are just overly picky. The location isn't bad. Short walk for food and the MRT. decent price especially for Singapore.

This hotel is in the Gaylang area (Red Light Area of SG) probably not well suited for everyone. Although we had No problems and there is an MRT station nearby. Had to book for a transit stay as other hotels were occupied. Very Clean hotel with all the required facilities including a bathtub. Little overly priced within the same range... More

There is nothing cheap in Singapore, so if you are stuck for a night on a budget this is what you get. I found the area interesting, including the girls of the night, but it's obviously not for everyone. There's some good, cheap food and drinks nearby. Room was clean, although you cant help but wonder about previous inhabitants. If... More

We booked this hotel thinking that for the price, it should be a decent no-frills place to stay in Singapore. The standard of our room didn't really reflect the price, even for expensive Singapore. The room was very, very basic (just a bed in a room with a mirror, and a bathroom with a shower over the toilet and a... More

What I mean is its located in the red light district of Sg. It was our first time to be in SG and we do not have an idea that this place is not good to stay. Luckily, we never saw any fly by night girls during our stay. The hotel is affordable .. maybe the cheapest of all. I... More

It is located right in the middle of the red light district and every time I went outside for a cigarette I was accosted by prostitutes. Even when My partner and I went to a local restaurant we were stared... More

Singapore is expensive! In trying to find decent accommodations that were not "dorm type" rooms I came across Hotel 81 (Premier) Star in the Geylang district. For the offerings of Singapore this was a jewel. Yes, this is the red light district of Singapore but I was never hassled in any way and it actually made for some of the... More

The hotel was nice except for the prostitutes that gather outside local hotels in the day time!! The air on was leaking too so had to move rooms and you have to get daily wifi codes which is annoying!!
