We were looking for a budget hotel after flying in late and just needed a place to sleep for a few hours and rinse off. We did not know it was located on a street that is well known for prostitutions and brothels. Our taxi drivers informed us as we were on the way there. Our room reeks of cigarette...

We stayed here for 5 nights and was worth the price. Singapore is expensive and this was one of the cheaper places to stay. The hotel is 10mins walk from Aljunied MRT and that is the easiest public transport to use in Asia! The wifi doesn't work as well on iPhones as you need to connect first, then type in...

An low cost budget hotel located in the Geyling area. The reception process was prompt and efficient. The rooms are very basic with minimal facilities. But the rooms were clean. The wifi proved to be reliable. The hotel was suitable for a one night stay only.

We arrived early in the morning and were disappointed to find that the room was unclean and there was a trail of ants above the bed. Luckily we had only booked here one night as I wouldn't of stayed again. It was a 10 minute drive from the airport which is handy.

The room was dirty and bathroom also. You can't let fresh air inside, because windows are screwed. Sheets and pillows were with stains and strange smell. Indoor unit of air condition was pooring water and when we told that to the girl at the reception, she said that they will fix that, but they didn't ... Location is not really...

This is one of several Hotel 81 properties in the Geylang area and you can use your imagination as to the reason. However it is clean, there is no soliciting. Good proximity to many eateries and about 10 min walk to MRT stations. Our room was clean but the single beds were rather narrow - more like a massage table.

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.
