Located on red district area, you can find yourself be offered 'service' even in the morning when you stroll around. My dad and brother experienced that. 1 km from nearest MRT station, aljunied. Better to take bus since bus stop just few meters away. The room was decorated with japanese style. Small but tidy. However our room has broken soap...

I stayed in this hotel 2 weeks ago for one night lay-off only. I've read a lot of reviews, well mostly bad, disappointing reviews about 2-star hotels in Singapore so when I booked this hotel I didn't really have a lot of expectation. Besides, this was my first time staying in a budget hotel in Singapore. I booked this hotel...

It was a good stay, the room was clean and very comfortable. One thing I've noticed is when we checked in, they only have one bottle. The next day they prepared 2 bottles which is the standard. Seems like the housekeeping was didn't fully did the protocol but nevertheless the room was very clean and convenient. Location wise, it needs...

The rooms are very clean and comfy, the room we were provided with smelt like smoke and we told the reception this and they moved us immediatley to a smoke free room. Good staff and 24/7 reception and a...

Inconsiderate cleaning staff banging about in nearby rooms from 7.00 am and shout to each other, mostly Chinese workers here and don't respond to request in English to tone down the noise. Probably don't actually care and seem to do what they want. Didn't find the Reception staff to be warm or friendly and respond in perfunctory manner when seeking...

Located on a red-light street, but ok for the price in expensive Singapore. About 15-20 minutes from the centre, but easy to get there with the metro. Rooms are compact but clean and despite the surrounding red light district I found the area quite calm and hassle-free. If you want to experience singapore but have to stay somewhat budget-conscious, this...

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.
