I was stayed here for 2 nights last year, i booked the hotel via online booking site. This hotel located nearby the Geylang MRT stations (arround 10 mins walking) which is only few MRTs from Changi Airport, its not in central of Singapore, but with MRT's every attractions is nearby. Its also easy to find for the first time traveller to Singapore.
People said geylang is a red district area, and yes it is, but from my experienced, at the hotel almost no sign of the red district as its very quite. Yes it was noisy from the neighbourhood, but when u spent your day exploring singapore, walking and by MRTs,you will get exhausted and will sleep deeply and wont heard a thing. Despite its location, its quite save area, I was walking back to the hotel through the street at 11 pm from the internet cafe nearby and its quite save, you might can see what they mean with the 'red district' but Singapore has low criminal rates, and they have cctv almost everywhere ..
Amenities in this hotel is just like what u expected to has in budget hotel but the water heater they provide is good, as i can use it to make my own tea and meal for breakfast, the room quite small, but again, if you only need it to sleep and take a shower, size wont matter. The staff are good and quite helpful, easy check in and check out, everything was prepared.
I would recomended this hotel for young solo or couple budget travellers, who looks for an average hotel to sleep in after an exhausting day exploring Singapore. If you looking for more comforts, definetely not here,what you pay is what you got. Overall it was good average experienced to stay here, i might back here if I visit singapore again in the future, or try another location.
