“Good Budget Option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

An excellent budget option located at a convenient walking distance to trains with connections downtown and to the airport. Efficient and courteous staff, small but clean room. Highly recommended as a transit stop or a short stay inn Singapore.

The hotel room is very small and it can’t accommodate two large suitcases. All the furniture and facilities are quite old and lack of maintenance. As the room rate is low, don’t expect too much to this hotel.

The location is alright and closes to restaurants, convenience stores and bus station. All are staff are friendly and helpful.

It was a good stay in relation to its price. but it is far from the metro station. We had asked many persons to find the hotel because the way was not clear.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Hotel Pearl is conveniently located between the airport and down town Singapore. It is easy accessible by MRT system from the airport with approx. 20 min traveling time. Then approx. 10 min walk from Aljunied MRT station. Rooms are very small but functional. The bathroom is surprisingly of a decent size. The property is well kept and rooms are clean. The hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. The minus points are: no fridge in the room, WiFi connection quite expensive and there is not much choice in TV programs to watch.
Warning to some, the hotel is located in Singapore red light district of Geylang but on the positive side the area has abundant amount of places around to have a nice and inexpensive food till very late at night.

Room Tip: Good hotel for a night if you are catching connecting flight the next day

Cheap hotel in a bad neigborhood. Don't book this; rather spend some extra money so at least you're in a good place. To far from the city, no warm water, cranky staff and wifi didn't work in the lobby. In singapore hotels are just expensive; I accepted that fact and won't trap into this again.

Stayed here for many trips to Singapore before we had kids, not that taking kids to this place is bad, but we just wanted a pool. We love the fragrance chain in Geylang, the hotels are spotlessly clean, cheap and you only have to walk a few meters to the best Chinese cuisine in Singapore.
Close to trains and only about $25 cab to airport. Well worth it.
