Average hotel, too expensive for such facilities, less cleanliness, there is dead cockroach in the room. Its advantage is close to public transportation access like SMRT Paya lebar station and bus stop.

Basic hotel with bed, bathroom, tv and that's it. Convenient location. Pro's: friendly staff, clean rooms, free water, nearby a lot of cheap food markets (right in front of hotel), shops, taxi stand and 10 minute walk to metro station Paya Lebar. In half an hour you can reach marina bay. Shopping mall is just 10 min walk tops. Cons:... More

As a chain hotel in Singapore, 81 had many hotel located in every corner of the city. Classic is located very near with bus station, food court and market. I have pleasant stay at this hotel, old style decoration of the hotel is a plus point.

They never bother to great u although they are staring at u when u walk in,especially a chubby staff who's wearing specs.Plus the room charges... More

If you don't mind the "classic" smell that greets you when you enter the hotel lobby then please continue... This hotel is a pleasant surprise for me and my friends. I booked for them at the last minute (1 day before checking in). Considerably cheap for the location. It is in the Joo Chiat Heritage area, so you'll get to... More

Pro's: not far from Paya Leyar metro station which gets you to the airport in a few stops. This is the only positive point of this hotel. Cons: unfriendly staff. I was requested to pay for the room on arrival, 100 singapore dollars, no receipt given. This is without breakfast. When asked for the receipt, was told they would give... More

I recently spent one night here whilst on a stop over in Singapore, the hotel is fairly basic in terms of the room, standard double bed which was actually quite comfy. The bathroom was small but functional. Would've been better had there been a shower curtain, but the shower was ok. Hot and wet! The room did feel slightly musty/damp,... More

I only booked this hotel because it's near my company's office and the photos looked OK. I booked through Agoda for $86 AUD per night. There's an immediate stale smell as soon as you enter. The staff could be friendlier. The hallways smell of cigarette smoke. The room I booked didn't have a window and the air con controls don't... More

Staying in Joo Chiat

Neighborhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighborhood is packed with colorful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
