The Price is Right!

At the price that I am paying, I would have no complaints except that maybe the Hotel's housekeeping should sweep under the bed more often and also have the pest control authorities do a monthly spray job of all the rooms as once in a while, you would be able to see small cockraches (not too sure of the spelling) crawling out from the nooks and corners of the small room. These are the two major setbacks about the hotel. The staff are all friendly and there is not a moment that you can go hungry with all the various eateries around.

Along Geylang Lorong 9, the Beef Hor Fun, Frog's Porridge, Oyster Omellete, etc. are good to eat. There's also a Thai restaraunt, Diandik, which serves authentic thai cuisine.

Vibrant is good

Many reviewers make a big negative of the red light district proximity. no big deal. the neighborhood is "vibrant" but the corner of Orchid 81 was pretty quiet and I always felt safe and comfortable at night.

20 minute walk or 5 minute ride on Bus #11 to the National Stadium and Kallang Tennis Center where the WTA finals were held. good location for that.

Does the job

Only stayed for one night. When I heard it was on the red light district, I expected the worst; however, there was a family staying next door, and I also saw girls clearly not in "the industry" walking alone at around 1 am. Internet was really bad though. Room was small but ok. Good value for money

Decent place to sleep for a few nights

I was only in Singapore for a few nights and stayed here, the bed was comfortable enough even if it didn't quite handle my full height. My only real complaints with the room I had would be that there only seemed to be one outlet in the room and that the bathroom was on the small side, so everything got wet when I showered. But it's manageable.

budget hotel

needed a place to sleep while waiting for my connecting flight. Hotel is located in the RLD area (didn't know that)... it can be a cultural experience to see the other side of Singapore. Nearby you can find lots of food stands with cheap and delicious Chinese menu...

A quite ok budget hotel

The location is good, 10 mins walk to MRT. Since it's in red light area, so be careful at night. Room is small but have necessary facilities, and, you get what you pay for... 10$ for internet access per day. Cleaning starts from 7:00am in the morning, which is annoying...

Best value in Singapore!

For the price I paid I was expecting a lot less. The room was spotless but a little small, the mattresses were extra firm with bedding that was changed daily. The room also had A/C, flat screen TV w/HBO and multi language channels, ethernet cable, hair dryer and coffee, tea and bottled water. The hotel also had the smoothest elevators I have ever been in.
