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... More

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... More

Good cheap hotel, close enough to the city and close enough to the airport to provide a good stop over base. 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... More

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... More

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... More

The rooms were quite boring and weren´t attractive. The hotel is located in a red light district and this was noticeable. The personnel was pretty distant. But besides that the rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower was fine. We were here for just one day and this was good enough for us.

If you are a solo traveler and want to stay in Geylang, this is an excellent place. However, of all places, even in Geylang, this hotel sits right in middle of the busiest brothel street. The brothels are very discreet. To a foreigner, you wouldn't even know. Almost everything is out of sight. Still, the area is full of men... More

Modern and clean hotel, with welcoming staff. Maybe not the best area in Singapore, but we never felt uncomfortable walking there during night time. Subway is close, so you have easy access to the city center.

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.
