We spent 16 days in Singapore for both dental and medical reasons. Picked the Fragrance - Crystal as our budget option. Our first room was okay but very small - it was at the end of the hall in sort of an alcove. After the first night, we requested a room change, and the front desk staff was very helpful once he realized which room we were in - he immediately signed us up for a standard room (the alcove rooms are not the same size as the standard rooms) and made sure we were able to move as soon as the room was re-made. It was a much more comfortable room for this long a stay.
Yes, this is not a posh hotel. But they have lovely soft sheets that they change every day. Thick soft towels that are changed every day. Bottled water in the room and at the front desk. Very friendly and helpful staff, from the front desk to the housekeeping crew - everyone was friendly and helpful.
We didn't see any bugs. Or lizards. And yes, this is in the red light district - but there are also temples and shrines all over the neighborhood, wonderful open air restaurants (24 dim sum about 6 blocks away) - we absolutely enjoyed our stay in Geylang and at the Crystal. It's a little slice of old traditional Singapore. With easy access to the new modern city center.
Also, the MRT station (train station) at Aljuneid is very convenient - but the buses that run up and down Geylang are also fun, especially the double-decker buses.
