My family and I stayed in the family room. The room was spacious enough for 4 persons to move around, considering the space occupied by the luggages. The room had a flat screen TV, a mini refrigerator and electric water heater. Bottled water and coffee were also provided. The room was cleaned daily, this includes a change of sheets and... More

I wouldn't say the hotel is at its best location, a 15-20 minute walk from the Buguis MRT station. The neighbourhood is rather shady being close to a dimly-lit construction site. However, the room was clean, though the setting of the bathroom was slightly convenient as the shower was not compartmentalized so the entire bathroom was wet after a shower.... More

This hotel is for the tight budgeted travelers. The room was unsurprisingly small and cramped. Just a few spaces for walking and moving inside the room. The bathroom was likewise small but useable. Staff service was just okay. Location wasn't impressive compared to other Hotel 81's in the country.

Hotel 81 was a budget hotel with very small rooms BUT was neat & clean. No restaurant/room service but a 7/11 is next door. Very well located - 5min from Bugis junction and Little India MRT. Helpful staff especially Martin

We had 3 nights in a standard room. A bit shocked with the size of the room in comparison with size of the building. Cannot imagine if you stay with lots of luggage/baggage and there will be no enough space to do something in the room. Despite of the room, the hotel location is reachable. The nearest MRT station is... More

We where a family of 4 with small kids under 5. Had 3 nights in a Family room in this hotel and was satisfied for the price paid. 2 doublebeds was great, room spacious. Not much cubboardspace but we just kept most of our things in our suitcases. No window didn't bother us as we wanted to sleep in as... More

The main factor about this hotel is LOCATION. While I thought it is a blink and a miss signage, all cab drivers seem to knew exactly where it is on selegie road. The hotel is good only if you intend to use it just to crash after a long day of sightseeing or travel. The room is as small as... More

5-10 minutes walks from Little India MRT. Places to eat and store is very near to the hotel too. Stayed in family room (no window) for 3 nights. The room is clean and tidy (they clean the room and change the towel everyday!). The staff is friendly. No exhaust fan in the room and the electricity cut off when you... More

The location is excelent, 2 blocks from little india metro station. And the aircon worked all the time perfectly (this is indispensable... More
