Q&A: Need a decent hotel close to Geylang in Singapore?

Question by dive-pi.com: Need a decent hotel close to Geylang in Singapore?
I like the area of Geylang because of the ‘entertainment’ there, but the hotels are all short time places. Can someone recommend a decent, reasonably priced hotel very close to Geylang? Thanks

Best answer:

Answer by Abang Johnny
i once stayed at Hotel 81 – Princess and the room is for a couple of days due to me being GOH during last time NDP at stadium. The room was great! Mine is with balcony!

As they say…. “The most beautiful budget hotel in Geylang. Rooms are tastefully furnished and ample car parks. Located near banks, retail/convenience stores and local eateries serving the famous “Beef Noodle” and “soya bean” delicacies.”

There’s broadband access in some rooms too, though.
