Okay, since this is my first time in Singapore, the environment of the Darlene Hotel is not what I expected of the modern city of Merlion. (Direction) I took the MRT from Changi Airport to the Kallang station and walk to Lorong 8. The first scene that caught into my eyes was probably the most awkward situation I can be with my parents. There are legit(?) prostitutes standing guard and looking for giving you good time right in front of the hotel main entrance. This is probably the place to look for if you want to have a good(?) time.
The check-in procedure are pretty standard, a small issue happens as they didnt get the notification from AsiaRoom in time to put on my reservation. But it was easily solved. However, a close observation on their price range, would tell you that the main customers for this hotel usually stays for a few hours only (if you know what I mean). Luckily, on my cases there were no extra services/ extra sound effect in the 2 nights of my stay.
The room cleanliness is at doubt, maybe they have fast-paced customer flow, making them did not take the cleaning work seriously. There are cigarettes ashes in the drawer, and some fruits skin under the bed. The towels provided are in bad condition. The only good thing about this hotel is their free wifi, they have repeaters for each floor, so the speed and connection are satisfactory.
Would recommend this if you are just having short stays over there without your parents/family, and 120% recommend if you want to have tra la la time.
Stay away! If you coming with your children to avoid them asking why are those women wearing in such revealing skirts outside the hotel. Nevertheless, please enjoy another sight of Singapore while you are in Geylang ;)
