Basic but Good Value

Would recommend Mon, Aug 24, 2015
Have stayed here before. Quite a small, basic, room but clean and convenient, and tough to beat the price for a reasonable place in Singapore. Even provided tea and coffee in the room. Conveniently located in the heart of the vibrant Geylang district, and surprisingly the room was nice and quite.

Room condition

Would not recommend Fri, Apr 5, 2013
Although the room was clean , I was shocked at the condition of the bath towels they looked like and felt flimsy. I was also horrified to find the toilet bowl, face sink and bathroom shower in one small room with no separation between them. All the drivers I encountered asked me how come I choose this hotel as it has no ratings.

La Cucaracha

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 1, 2012
For Singapore's standard this hotel seemed reasonably priced for its location, and that's what got us into booking it. However, when we actually saw the insides of it, it all went down to disappointment and disgust. Rooms are very small (from wall to wall you can bearly fit a double bed), walls are thin (so you could unwillinglly know your neighbors' doings), and -worst of all- there seems to be an uncontrolled pest problem in the premises. Cockroaches abound. Small, large and everywhere...even by the bed. Obviously we reported the problem to the hotel's staff and, in spite of their promise to get in charge, we still found roaches after coming back at night. 

Time saver

Look for another hotel... Therewas a good number of stylish hostels in Little India!

Awful neighborhood and extremely noisy

Would not recommend Thu, Jul 12, 2012
The neighborhhod smells so bad and is very dirty for Singapore. Far from the MRT but close to buses. I asked for a quiet room and they put me right next to the elevator. All floors are tile and you guests talk very loud and are uneducated. I paid $60 for a tiny room and barely slept (stayed 2 nights). Better staying in a hostel and save $$$. AWFUL EXPERIENCE.

Excellent place to be

Would recommend Mon, Apr 16, 2012
Was one of the best place of the category that we know there. It is in the area of a nearby typical Chinese quarter. The 10' walking distance to the train station is quite reasonable and the staff was particularly helpful and empathetic.

Clean and good location

Would recommend Sat, Feb 18, 2012
Hotel is located in Geylang and is considered the red light district of Singapore. So I expected it to be a not too good of a location. However was pleasantly surprised, the location is pretty quiet and clean, had no problem at all with the location. It was a perfect place as a base for sightseeing and great value. Clean and comfortable bed and clean washroom. The place was just newly renovated. It was a small room but it's all we needed. Close to the bus stop, walk to Geylang and turn right, go to the bus stop in front of 7/11. Take bus 21 or 26 and get off two bus stops later, then walk back a few meters to the LRT on Kallang. From there you can go to all major centers and attractions. Transportation is really cheap. The only downer is you have to pay 5 dollars for 2 hrs of internet.

Attractions

There are a lot of buses that go to the different attractions. We used SAEX, went to see the bird park in the morning then they took us to the zoo for the afternoon, then walked across the street for the night safari. Then took SAEX to our starting point at night.

You get what you pay for.

Would not recommend Sat, Jan 9, 2010
Room was clean but very small. The bed was not very comfortable, and the hotel was noisy at night. Hotel is in a questionable part of town. The price (and the fruit vendor down the street) were the only upside. Would not recommend to friends.

Money saver

Use the MRT (Singapore subway system) and see the city! Rides are cheap and the subway is very nice. Singapore can be expensive, but there are a lot of free things you can do. We went to the Botanic Gardens (a beautiful park in the middle of the city), the Merlion park on the water, the public library (glass elevator to the top floor gets you a good view of the city!), and the river walk/Clarke's Quay area. There are also lots of free places so do your research before you go and you can do a lot without having to spend a lot of money.
