Singapore Budget Style

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 4, 2011

A value for money budget hotel. As a fairly regular visitor to Singapore my wife and I are not afraid of using a reasonable quality budget hotel as it gives us the chance to visit again at a later date and not blow oursavings all in one go. The price works out at around £30 GBP per night and the accomodation is very basic. A bed in a small room with a TV, air conditioning, a wet room shower and toilet, a hair dryer and in the corridor a hot water machine to make up the two daily sachets of "all in one coffee" that are supplied or as we did our own Red Bush Tea bags we brought with us. You also get two cartons of water per person each day. There is no dining room, so the price is room only. The area is to say the "interesting" numerous eating houses on Geylang Road, a two minute walk away or if you prefer slightly more modern and tidy surroundings there is Guillemard Village Food court. A little more pricy than the food court is Fatty Weng's Restaurant on Guillemard Road by Guillemard Crescent serving excellent food a meal for six people will only set you back about $130. Now that the Circle line has opened the nearest MRT station is Mountbatten about five minutes gentle stroll between Fatty Weng's and the old Singapore Badminton Hall (now a prawn fishing restaurant) past the Autism School. Trains are every 7 minutes and take 12 minutes to get to Dhoby Ghaut interchange.

Rooms were cleaned daily and clean towels provided each day, the only downsides are the small size of the room, the extra firm mattress with a leatherette cover, some traffic noise from the very busy Guillemard road and although it didn't bother my wife and I, you are right next to the red light district. Houses with red house numbers are the ones where the business goes on! Should you be tempted, I understand you have to be wary of the girls working in the street as they do not undergo the health checks that are mandatory for the workers in the red number houses.

Unique Quality: Basic value for money accomodation with close access to MRT and eating houses. Having saved a large amount of money on accomodation you now have money for travel on the MRT, visiting attractions, eating out, drinking Tiger beer, buying gifts to take home.

Directions: Heading along Geylang Road towards the city streets are numbered Lorong n where n= an odd number on the left and an even number on the right. Guillemard Road runs parrallel to Geylang Road. Fragrance Crystal is located next to Guillemard Road.
