I'm due to be in Singapore from approximately 9th-17th May as I'll be interviewing with several firms that week. I live in the UK and I'd like to find a room for 7-8 days while I stay.
I don't want to spend a fortune on a hotel - all I need is a non-shared room with air-con, a TV and shower really.
The cheapest hotels I can find are all in Geylang though and when my interviewers ask 'Where are you staying while you're here?', then I expect saying 'Geylang' won't exactly sound very good to my potential future employers!
I do not see any serious reason why Geylang should not sound very good to your potential future employers. In any case, you can always lie about where you're staying in hotel - not your permanent address anyway.
