BudgetHotels.sg, an online hotel guide platform specializing in listing budget hotels near MRT train stations in Singapore, has announced the top three favorite budget hotels in Geylang district in Singapore based on reviews from travelers and in-house statistics.
Top spots were determined based on the cheapest room rates, most convenient hotel and value-for-money hotel.
Santa Grand Hotel Aljunied was rated as the best value-for-money hotel in Geylang while Amrise Hotel was unanimously voted for offering the cheapest room rates. The Fragrance Hotel Ruby was named as the most convenient hotel due to its close proximity to a MRT train station.
Danny Lee, founder of BudgetHotels.sg, commented: “From our statistics, we concluded that Geylang hotels are very popular with travelers from Asian countries such as Indonesia, Philippines and Malaysia. However, many people have a big misconception about Geylang being unsafe because of its red-light district connection.
“Staying in Geylang is safe even for female travelers who travel alone, due to Singapore’s rigorous law enforcement environment. Not just that, you can also feast on a wide variety of famous local dishes such as Chilli Crab, Frog Leg Porridge and Beef Kway Teow found in this district.”
Santa Grand Hotel Aljunied, a 42-room budget hotel and recipient of Singapore Prestige Brand Award has won over travelers with its value-for-money accommodation, with room rates starting from US$59 per night. The rooms offer free WiFi, LCD TV with cable channels, mini-fridge, safe deposit box, and the property has a gym as well.
The 58-room Amrise Hotel, while it may not have won a single award, has been voted by budget travelers as the cheapest hotel in Geylang. From US$34 per night, the rooms are understandably no-frills type with practical amenities such as LCD TV with cable channels, attached shower and free WiFi.
Lastly, with the 168-room Fragrance Hotel Ruby a short 5-minute walk from the Aljunied MRT train station, it is not surprising for the hotel to win the most convenient location accolade in Geylang. The room rates start from US$52 per night and are equipped with flat-screen TV with cable channels, attached shower, hairdryer and WiFi access.
“A big advantage when choosing to stay in a hotel in Geylang is its unique location – it’s halfway point between Changi Airport and the city center. You just need to hop on the cheap and fast train from the airport and arrive at your hotel in less than 30 minutes. Heading to downtown locations such as Orchard Road, Bugis, Little India, Chinatown and the Marina Bay is also a breeze, with just a 15-20 minute train ride from the nearby Aljunied MRT station,” added Danny Lee.
