First time in SG and to my surprise, the area around the hotel has so much to offer. We travelled with kids and we didn't face any issues with transportation and accessibility around like restaurants and shops. Rooms are tidy but a bit small. It can be easily navigated by taxis. Friendly staff too.

I am quite particular about beds even though we stayed in budget hotels. Some of the budget hotels are not good for overnight stay as they cater mainly for hour-paid guests. I am quite pleased with the bed and the maintenance of the hotel and the guest rooms.

Singapore is one of the best place to tour. Little expensive comparing to other countries, but transport and security is really good. Hotel 81 rooms are bit small but worth for the price. There are quite a lot of food stalls close by so nothing worry about it. It’s just 8min walk to the kallang station and for the bus...

The room is good and quite clean. I find it okay to stay for few days here. However it was a little bit too far to go to the centre. And the station is not near the hotel. But if you have time and just be there for travelling, it will fit you.

The room was a bit small but with the room prices around that was acceptable. The metro was not very far from this hotel. This hotel needs a bit of renovation now. Staff was ok. So many restaurants around within walking distance. Recommend to a solo traveler on a budget.

The price of the room is at the low range, therefore we chose this hotel. Location is good. Just walk about 7min to reach Kallang Station, which is one of the reason we stay at this hotel as well. This hotel is located just 3 min walk from the famous frog porridge restaurant. We do not get the room with...

The room is small which is fine for us. Yet, the room itself is not well kept, the water heater is rusty and yellowish. Especially the bed sheet is stained with no pillow cover (but disposable cover). The light is quite dim. I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you're a tourist.

I know this isn't a super high class Hotel, but it needs renovation really bad. The only good thing about this place was the staff as they were friendly and there has always been someone at the reception. But the Bed was full of hair, the sheets had holes, stains and hair of other ppl on it. The bathroom (if...

Staying in Geylang

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
