My boyfriend and I stayed there from the 16th to the 23rd of September. It was nice, Uncle, the old receptionist is so nice and always greets us warmly whenever we come back from our tour.
All the receptionists are also helpful when you need tips on the places you are going. We booked a Superior double room which was very far from what it was in the picture but it was no big deal.
The room itself was good, not a luxury room but has all you need to have home comfort while traveling. They also have room service everyday so cleaning was not a problem. Over all we loved the hotel and would consider booking again if we have the chance. – Ninin of New Zealan at TripAdvisor

Tips About Staying in Geylang of Singapore
As mentioned above, the Geylang District is an area that’s teeming with authentic local cuisine. Many Singaporeans flock to this area due to the vast selection, and to get away from the eye-watering menu prices of downtown.
Therefore, you’d be remiss to not flavor and savor the wonderful food that’s scattered around Geylang in virtually every nook and cranny. The Regin Hotel doesn’t offer any food items, so this large assortment of dishes nearby will come in really handy.
Regin itself as you already know, is of course budget-oriented. So expect small rooms with standard amenities. A couple of things to consider upon arriving for check-in, is to go view a couple of rooms first. Perhaps the room you get, may not quite be like the ones you see in the photos when booking online.
Not only that, but to make sure that you’re not given a smoking room if you’re one who doesn’t light up. Another point to consider if you’re a light sleeper, is to ask for a room on the upper floors. Although the Geylang area is known for its nightlife, fortunately the hotel is located on the outskirts from all the action.
Several previous guests have commented about the incredibly friendly and helpful owners and staff of the Regin. Couple this with its extremely welcoming budget rates and situated nearly halfway between the airport and downtown, it makes for an appealing economical place for both a convenient layover or weekend stay.
