Clean, Comfy Bed, and CHEAP by Singapore standards - but a TINY Room (the Smallest I've ever had), and NOT a place to stay for more than a night or two.
I needed a hotel for just myself for one extra night at the end of a 15 day holiday in Singapore. My Fiancee was flying home the day before me, and as I was broke I needed somewhere MUCH CHEAPER than where we had been staying.
All the staff I saw at Amrise were men, even the "Chamber Maids", which seemed strange since all the staff at our previous hotel, except for the Doorman, had been women.
I got mixed up with my dates and arrived a day early, but they found me a room on the first floor - Good Job as I have a Bad Back and Amrise has No Lift, and no way could I have dragged my suitcases up more than one flight of stairs.
Apart from an unpleasant Disinfectant + Perfume smell in Reception, I found the rest of the place was Clean and Fresh, including my room.
This was my first ever "interior" room, with no window. After a long sleep on my second night I had no idea what time it was when I woke up, or even if it was Day or Night !
There was NO wardrobe and NO drawers for clothes. Clothes had to be kept in my suitcase, or hung on the back of the door using the five hooks and three hangers provided. Totally Inadequate (and very crowded too) if a couple were using the room.
The bathroom was OK. I had a decent electric shower, washbasin, large mirror, towel rack and toilet. Everything worked and it was clean.
Geylang is a poor, working class suburb of Singapore and Sims Avenue is a very busy road with lots of traffic. The smells from all the street cafes take a bit of getting used to, but I've always felt Safe there, even at night, and the ordinary Singaporians are friendly and helpful.
There are lots of market stalls nearby where excellent fruit and veg can be bought very cheaply, and at night, even if you are "not buying", a wander through the Red Light District is quite Entertaining and Totally Safe.
Singapore has the BEST Mass Rapid Transit System I've ever used. The trains are Clean, Fast and Frequent, Very Affordable and cover most of the island. Aljurnied MRT Station is only 5-10 minute walk away, and from there, for less than 2 dollars, you can be in the City Centre in 10 mins or the Airport in 20 mins.
