Fairfax, Virginia

If you are a solo traveler and want to stay in Geylang, this is an excellent place. However, of all places, even in Geylang, this hotel sits right in middle of the busiest brothel street. The brothels are very discreet. To a foreigner, you wouldn't even know. Almost everything is out of sight. Still, the area is full of men...

Modern and clean hotel, with welcoming staff. Maybe not the best area in Singapore, but we never felt uncomfortable walking there during night time. Subway is close, so you have easy access to the city center.

Since my boyfriend and I are staying in Singapore for about 2 weeks, we hope to get a budget and cheap hotel with reasonable price rate that should also be conveniently near a MRT station and the airport. So, we booked a week of stay at this hotel. But little did we know that it is such a uncalled for....

Phuket, Thailand
Reviewed 25 July 2016

The room is comically tiny but so are all these low cost hotels. The corners of the room could have been cleaner. There are inexpensive restaurants in walking distance. The MRT station is 10 minutes away, busses at the end of the street.

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.
