Son Of A Hotel Owner.

I had a childhood friend whose family operated a hotel with the grand sounding name of Hotel De Luxe.

When he went to London to study, his reputation as a hotel owner commanded a lot of respect. His uni mates thought it must be a legendary hotel like the ones in Hollywood or Rome, housed in an art deco building. He told them the hotel had a casino.

In reality, it was a 'rumah tumpangan' or a budget lodging house above the family's coffee shop or kopitiam. The casino was the mahjong table in a corner. Lol.

Hotel 81 Tristar Geylang Singapore

To have quick access to the Singapore Ramadan Bazaar, I stayed at a hotel on the doorsteps of the street bazaar known as Geylang Serai. I tried to recall the name of the hotel but there are like a dozen 81 chain hotels in the Geylang area!

SR Inn, Simpang Renggam

Now to introduce a local small town hotel. I had a photography assignment in tiny Simpang Renggam town in Johor at one time and I stayed at a small budget hotel. The town is as small as one can get.

The other alternative was to stay in Kluang and take a daily half hour drive each way. It is not the only act in town but I am happy with SR Inn for several reasons. It is centrally located in the middle of town though don't expect any action or entertainment after 8pm.

Hotel Hanson

Not all hotels in KL cost the earth. Sometimes, you just want a clean, safe, budget hotel in KL.

If you don't need a swimming pool to pee into or to get red eyes from, try the new Hanson Hotel KL. It is promoted by my friend Lilian Ying on behalf of her owner friend. You can book via my link too.
