we stayed there for 4 nights. Its bit far from city centre. Two bus stations away from MRT station. However we liked the place. Clean rooms and friendly staff. We could keep our luggages there after check out for free of charge.

We stayed here for 2 nights in singapore and we liked this hotel. It was clean, the WiFi was good, and the staff were helpful. I would say if you are using the subway system don't get off at kovan, instead get off at serangoon as it's an easier walk to the hotel.

Hotel is located about 10-15 minutes walk from Nex Shopping Mall/Serangoon MRT station. Just the normal budget hotel, with small room. Nothing much to shout about. There's a convenient store (7-Eleven) and mamak food store beside it.

This hotel is clean, with friendly staff, but it is VERY basic, to the point of spartan. The bathroom for instance has no separate shower stall, but rather a shower faucet on the wall and a drain in the floor. The room I had, had a bed, small desk and stool - no chair at all. There are several restaurants... More

I stayed in the standard room for a night. It is the cheapest room and there are no windows in the room. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1. Price is very attractive, only $99. It is cheaper than the Fragrance Hotel next to it. 2. The staff are friendly. They will always smile at you when you enter... More

Hotel is located nearby Serangoon MRT station, which is located just beside Nex Mall. It is just a 10-15 minutes walk to the mall/MRT station. Checking in was easy and WiFi connection is fairly good. Suitable for short stay/business.

The pictures must be of another hotel. This is a dirty street in Singapore. The location is the worst possible. No restaurants of any interest within walking distance. Staff friendly but this is obviously a short time hotel. I brought my family thinking the pictures looked ok, only to find out that is NOT a picture of this hotel but... More

This branch of H81 is slightly more expensive than the rest, maybe because of the location. Quiet and peaceful around residential area. Within walking distance MRT station and eateries. Small room as usual.
