This hotel is located in lorong 14 gaylang. The main difference between this hotel and other fragrance and hotel 81 hotels is that the rooms are larger. Rooms in all other budjet hotels are around 09-13 Sqm while the rooms in this hotel is 15sqm. Having said that if you have more that 3 in your party it's going to... More

It is located in a red light district. Its a budget hotel used mainly for sex. Rented out mainly by hours. Most of the hotel 81 around singapore are catered for those patron wanting to rent a room for short time sex. Not recommended for tourist. Do not try. You will regret it.

Dear Stanley, Thank you for your feedback. I had verified that you had also posted the same review content for my sister property, Fragrance Hotel - Sapphire, which is also located in this same district. I am thus offering the same explanatory response as what I had replied via Fragrance Hotel - Sapphire. As mentioned by the TripAdvisor reviewers, the... More

The hotel was ok. The bathroom needed a good clean. Room a good size but this is not a great area. It is the red light district so lots of large groups of foreign workers hang about. Not close to transport. The first room they gave us stank of cigarette smoke and I aksed to be moved as my daughter... More

Last month, my friends and i went for a staycation at the hotel for two days. In the afternoon, we went out and we hung the tag stating "makeup room" outside the door handle to tell the staff to do housekeeping. However, at night at about 11pm we came back and we saw that our room has not been clean... More

When we arrived at the hotel, they informed us that one of our reservations got canceled for no reason and had to call the agency back home, who we booked it with to rebook, to have them reactivate the reservation so that took awhile to get us checked in. Part of the accommodation is to have in-room wifi and none... More

The hotel tried not to honor our 2 fully paid rooms through a site for 1 double bed + 1 extra bed. Argued that the rate paid for is for superior room and what I book is family room which cost higher. In the end we get our rooms but not without haggling. Anything you want to argue please call... More

Initially I was a little apprehensive about the Geylang area as it is famously known as the 'red light' district of Singapore but was surprised to find out it was nothing like that. Yes, there is a red light location in Geylang but a bit far away from this hotel. Metro station is a bit far away but the bus... 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.
