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.

The room was surprisingly big and very comfortable with all the necessary amenities of a first class hotel and rates was reasonable. The staff service was excellent, very polite and helpful. The location of this hotel is near food stalls and MRT which makes it very convenient to travel around. Central location meant taxi fare also quite reasonable. Good wifi... More

I always book this hotel just to relax with my fiancée. There's a swimming pool open for 24 hours where we chill out till 2-3am with no disturbance. Good food can be found almost at every angle downstairs. Value for money. Nothing extravagant but better than other hotel 81.

This hotel may not be of a very high standard, but it's very conveniently located especially if you're Malay. It's close by to the food stalls and within walking distance to the shops that sells traditional Malay clothes. My family always stay here whenever we go to Singapore. We were there for 9 nights. The air con was cold, the... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights for a family of 2 adult & 2 child. On the first day, the room was dusty, but we managed to inform the housekeeping guy, which he had helped to make the room more cleaner. Would recommend for this hotel if anyone is planning to not spend time a lot in the... More

Paid for a family room for 4 adults. Only bedding for 3 in the room. They tried to charge extra for a rollaway bed. Our room had cockroaches and bugs in it along with a leaking toilet all over bathroom floor. We asked for toilet to be looked at but noone came. Airconditioning didnt work so room was hot. If...
