We had been warned that the area was the red light district but we saw no evidence of it even at midnight. The area was lively , bustling with locals in the cafes and shops. It seemed more authentic than 'the chinatown' There were several restaurants where the food was excellent and very cheap. There were several late night shops...

This is as budget as you can get. Nothing fancy about the facilities. A room with a bed and a working TV and shower. Nonetheless, the staff was very helpful and offered to upgrade our room for just SGD3 per night. The location is very good, with easy access to transportation and food. The major complaint would be the WiFi...

It was clear to me that this was a budget hotel - with budget I expect simple, small with minimum facilities- somewhere to put one's head down, and spend little time at, before touring the city in the day. I paid for 5 nights to stay and watch the F1. On arrival, I was met by friendly staff and taken...

There are only 2 reasons why I've given this place a poor rather than a terrible; 1) The staff were really friendly and helpful 2) the shower was hot and ridiculously powerful - if you put it on full whack it would literally launch itself round the room, which is always a good thing in my book. The reasons then...

The room was very small. The AC leeked and was loud, so we couldnt sleep with it on. Dodgy area, near red light district with pervy men. Unhelpful staff. Uncomfortable pillows. but. You do get a bottle of water free each per day.

So, arriving in Singapore after 4 months travelling around southeast Asia and you have to adjust your spending habits a little. We booked happy hotel in advance to save the hassle of arriving in a city and then not knowing where to go. From the airport it was an easy run on the MRT getting off at EW10. 10minute walk...

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.
