    Good

    we have enjoyed to stay because it is near the MRT station and easy to go anywhere

    Good

    the price is reasonable, room is clean, not very far from the center city, staff are familiar and helpful.

    I don't like the smoking smell of the hotel.

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    The fact that it only cost us a little over USD100 for our 3 nights stay at this hotel.

    The streets get crowded during night time as Geylang is known as the red light district of Singapore.

    The price was proportionate with the services.

    The staff are gracious and hospitable, they really attended to our needs and inquiries.

    Only the location and room size were really a problem, the facilities is totally poor, no everything, I forgot my laptop's mouse and pad, is there anyway I could get it in the future? I will be back on november, as a matter of fact, I already booked my flight, would you email me about this, my mouse is new. I would appreciate if I could get it on november of this year when I go back.

    Closeness to MRT and the lively neighborhood

    Toilet was not clean enough and the room was dusty .

    Fabulous

    Red-light district (at night), but ok for that price for young families and individual travellers. Nice staff. Many places of cheap national food around there.

    Hotell staff should better clean up bathroom

    A good place to stay, if you have an overnight stopover in Singapore. Relatively close to central S'pore and Changi Airport, almost along the mrt line. Geylang is not like rest of S'pore in many ways - good and bad. It's lively, relaxed, working class, not-too-steril, low cost area.

    Although the red light district nearby is not as extensive/invasive/bad as it may sound, it creates a little shady atmosphere. If you are overly sensitive, stay somewhere else.

    The front desk staff is not so friendly & not easy to approach.I'm disappointed coz there's problem wif the wi-fi too.Pls try to look into this matter as let's look presentable for a budget hotel.

    It's good for backpackers. The hotel is good just for a place to sleep.

    The room smelled of cigarettes, and the elevators too. Not so good for children.

  • 6.6
    Good

    I liked the price compared with most places in Singapore. The room was clean, the air con worked very well and it was close to the MRT. The area is a red light district but very well mannered and unthreatening for a red light district.

    The hotel was fine if you need to layover in Singapore. However I will try to avoid Singapore because it is very expensive and boring compared to rest of Se Asia, where people are warm and welcoming. Singapore seems to be "about the money" and consumerism.

    Superb

    Location of the hotel in an ethnically-mixed area; varieties of food available. Convenient access to Aljunied MRT. One of the least expensive hotels in the 81 chain. :-)
