Good location close to restaurants, local shops, bars etc and walking distance to Railway station about 12 minutes walk. Staff are very helpful and speak fluent English. Room is comfortable but the bathroom needs an upgrade.

This is a small hotel located at the red-light district of Geylang. It's located in very close proximity to another Hotel 81 so if you take a cab, be prepared to have the driver confused as where to drop you off. The front desk staff at the hotel is friendly enough. The lift is very small, a tight fit for...

The hotel price is affordable yet the quality was good. Though it's located in red-district-area, the situation around is still condusive and comfortable. This hotel become my favorite one in Singapore because it's near to the bus stop which can take you to many attraction place such as kampong glam, merlion and stadium.

Good location in geylang area. Personally, it's not my type. Because it is old and seems not well maintained. I'm not sure they wash the blanket daily. Because its dusty. When I want to use the kettle, there still water inside. Might be from the previous guest. However the service was good. Easy check in/out.

The room is ok but the floor is quite dusty. The TV is extremely small but it was ok for us. The bathroom is extremely small which i believe it is due to the bathtub inside. But there are quite a number of halal restaurants available around and the islamic centre also located beside the hotel. So for Muslims, Geylang...

Hotel location is good. You can get to town by bus along the main road. Room size is better that other budget hotels nearby. Coffee shops are available nearby and is easily accessible by walking. Can come and stay again.

Clean hotel, easy to find with friendly and helpful hotel staff. The hotel room is small a bit difference with the pict we saw in the internet. Small wall-mounted TV is the only entertainment in the room. The room-key lock (room 413) sometimes not working and need hotel staff to open it. No breakfast served for visitors but lucky that...

Staying in Geylang

Neighbourhood Profile
Geylang
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city centre, 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 colourful 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.
