I stayed on this hotel for a week since i have been looking for a cheap hotel and around 10 min.walk to the Aljunied MRT station. The room is quite clean although what bothered me is the smell of cigarette smoke on a non-smoking room which is probably from the guest on the adjacent room.

I was there for my training in Singapore. The hotel was average, they took care of me well so I don't have much to complain but the TV was too old, it was a big one, not LCD. The receptionists were friendly and helpful, I liked them much, especially Mr. James, he was a nice guy :-)

I've stayed here many times over the years and it never disappoints. It's a budget hotel so it is simple and unfussy but has everything you need. There is no food/restaurant in the hotel but it is surrounded by loads of cheap eateries a minute away open 24 hours. The rooms are clean and comfortable - but small. Little en-suite...

It’s a budget hotel similar to many in the Hotel 81 Chain. Try to get one of the renovated rooms which come with better bathroom, fridge and room safe. The rooms are fairly small but clean and all of them have a small desk, TV air conditioning and a kettle to make a cup of tea or coffee. WiFi works...

Even though it is located in a seedy area at night the hotel is reasonable and safe. The daytime is fine and we never felt awkward or fearful. The staff was nice and Tan Kim Eng was so nice to clean our room daily and quickly when we were in a rush. Her service was great and we appreciated her...

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.
