Room was OK but really not clean. There were spiderwebs behind the doors & mould in the shower. The area around the shops was fine, lots of great eateries -typical singapore. But this hotel doesn't live up to the advertised standard.

My partner and I stayed here just for one night in order to get to the airport the next day. The metro is a 10 to 15 minute walkaway and only 6 stops away from the airport. It is pretty centrally located the city centre is four stops away by metro. The rooms are big and comfortable, great shower, cable... More

A pleasant surprise presented to me when i arrived. I little 24/7 shop with cold beer, 24 hours restaurants downstairs. HUGE room, but old but you get what you pay for. I did not use the pool but looked very nice. Over all, yes i would stay again. thanks

This hotel is very nice hotel. Large size room with a window is the greatest thing for me. We cannot open the window but the view is great. Reception staff is not bad and not so friendly too. Very Clean Hotel, Plenty food stall around.

I booked this hotel last minute. The room was big and spacious. The bathroom was mostly clean and served its purpose. I absolutely loved the 24 hour food mart next door. I unfortunately did not get much time to explore the area as it was a quick transit-stay. My only major gripe was the fact that the tub/shower wasn't designed... More

I have stayed in a number hotels in Singapore and I would say this is the best economy hotel so far because of the size of its room commensurate with the price. The rooms are spacious with plenty of space for your luggage and to walk around. Near the airport so good for transit passengers looking for a nice place... More

I needed a hotel in District 14 while hunting for a new apartment. It was with some trepidation that I chose Hotel 81 Tristar, but I have to say that it exceeded all my expectations, and I'd have no hesitation about staying there again. The hotel is about mid-way between the airport and the city. Because of some heavily trafficed... More

Stayed here a 2nd time in 18 months due to good memories, and also due to the fact we needed a bigger room for a family. The rooms here are spacious by Singapore standards, not just Hotel 81's! The Family Rooms are even more so. I also liked this hotel due to its proximity to: (1) a hawker centre, where... More

I stayed 3 nights here with friends. The room was quite surprisingly better than I thought after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Or maybe I was just lucky enough to get a good room ;) Pretty good housekeeping service for a 3 star. Conveniently had a 24-hr mart and a 24-hr food court open right next to it. Only... More

Location is ok and easy to get food as the food court is just next to hotel. Need to walk about 10 mins to the train station. Room is simple but a bit for the bathroom. Most of the tourists stay here. Easy to get taxi if you need. The front desk is helpful.
