We have enjoy our stay in this hotel. Consider this is a red light disctrict area by the local but we feel quite safe with the security cameras in this area. Kallang MRT is just 10 mins. walk away. A quick and easiest way to go around Singapore. Probably need at least 3 to 4 nights stay. Book your acommodation... More

I would say it is a decent hotel. The rooms were small and not properly maintained. It is away from downtown, so it was relatively quite. However downtown main locations are 10-15 mins away in taxi. The facilities were minimal for the room that we took.

A budget hotel away from the bright lights of the city centre in a more, well, shall we earthy and authentic part of town. The area did not in any way feel unsafe, just a little seedy. Nothing intrinsically wrong with the place, it’s a budget hotel and that's what you should expect. No breakfast or dinning on site. Staff... More

Stained bed sheets, mould in the bathroom in the seels, leaking sink, the cleaners smoke while they go around the rooms. But you get what you pay for and we didnt mind it after we got used to it. Also prostitutes use the rooms, could be a bonus depending what your into.

Fantastic hotel in a decent area, within walking distance from a train station. Room was kept really clean the entire time, all staff were extremely pleasant, I would definitely stay again. Just up the hill as well, there is a great strip of restaurants, highly recommended for for anyone who wants to stay in Singapore for a decent price. Rooms... More

Excellent location near nightlife and small restaurants. Friendly staff but no laundry facilities. Laundry had to be done by yourself in a different partner hotel but those facilities were not operational. Small rooms but clean and well maintained.

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.
