I stayed here for an overnight transit and choose the hotel for its price and relative vicinity to the airport. The rooms are tiny, which is fine, but the first one stank of cigarettes. I was moved to another room but that one also stank as the ceiling was covered in mold. I realised I was staying in the red... More

Three of us stayed in a triple room at Hotel 81 Star for three nights from the 22nd to 25th of July 2014. I was a little hesitant to book this hotel due to some of the previous reviews and details about the location etc. All of that changed when we reached the hotel. Check in took us about 3... More

I stayed at Star for 2 weeks. The personnel was always attentive and helpful. The room was always clean and well kept. Did't have problems getting around from the hotel. The local food at the hawkers was very good and although within the Geylang Area, did not feel security was an issue. I will recommend this hotel for budget travelers.

The hotel at the entrance was very clean. The lobby was dim with Japanese-style design. The room had the same Japanese-style, small but very functional. The fact that the sink was placed outside of the bathroom was quite inconvenient if you're travelling with not too close partner. The sleep quality was very good. I remember sleeping soundly during my 2-night... More

A little bit scared by the surrounding if you arrive in the late night. Good attitude of staff at reception counter. Room small but look clean. But some improvement on the cleanliness required as hair found around the rubbish bin, dust on the fridge door and stain on the bed sheet. Air conditioner quite noisy but functioning well. Free wifi... More

After reading reviews of similar hotels in this area I decided to stay overnight during a transit stop over in Singapore. Yes it is in a red light district which if travelling with kids I would probably avoid but as a couple or business traveller I think it adds abit of 'colour' to the stopover :-) The room was clean,...
