My fiancé and I checked into this place for a stopover in Singapore. After waiting in the lobby for a few minutes and watching others checking in after an hour and checking in for an hour with indiscreet girls, it became very obvious that this hotel rents rooms out by the hour for the brothels across the road. Fair enough,...

Great value, modern rooms with most facilities. Safe, fridge, desk and hair dryer provided, lacked only toilet brush. AC only went down to 21°C and window didn't open. But at least there was a window, this is not standard in Singapore. No laundry service. Moderately clean except for some spots, and the provided cups were often dirty, New cups were...

Stayed here for one night. About 20mins in a taxi from airport. Cost 30 Singapore dollars. Small room but clean and good wifi. About 10 minute walk to the MRT. Checked in late and checked out early so did not get a chance to check out the surrounding area. Would stay again.

Overall of the hotel appearance and cleanliness I give top marks but unfortunately the checking in process is a bit lengthy and also frustrating at times. Not sure as to why there is a need of taking everyone's particular as this is the first time this ever happens. Staff working behind the desk also needs to be a bit more...

It's new, it's clean, only downside is the bathroom is tiny. Other than that no complaints for what I paid. It is in the middle of the red light district , so if that doesn't bother you then you can't find better value for brand new.

Because we were arriving in Singapore after midnight we booked a night here primarily to get some sleep for the night. And for that purpose it was adequate. But don't expect anything remotely up-market. There is a bed and a pokey toilet/shower and absolutely nothing else. It was an interim measure before we checked into our main 4-5 star hotel....

It got some kind of the bug bit me during the night or even during before bedtime, it still bit me which make me clear here that the cleanness is not enough. Air-condition never clean. The hotel location is very nice, easy to take bus or MRT train.

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.
