I slept there for 2 nights and the Hotel was very clean, the Staff friendly and the location is ok as well if you don't care about living in the red light district.But for the price you can't complain, right!!!

I went to hotel 81 on last September to pick up my friends who came with us to Singapore. Actually i was lodged to other hotel on day. I was wondered about the interior appearance of hotel 81. That was really very beautiful and pleasant. And the hospitality was really good one. One of my friend is not fluent in... More

Room was very clean and well maintained. absolutely no complaints for a quick convenient stay in Singapore. I was very pleasantly surprised by all aspects of this hotel based on other reviews I had read. I definitely would not recommend this area for family orientated activities.

The front desk staff were wonderful! The room could've been cleaned better - housekeeping let the front desk staff down. The room was new and all the facilities worked well. The shower was the best that I've had in Singapore! I'll stay here again. The brothels opposite may be a little off-putting for those with children.

We have been staying in this hotel for 2 nights and we were ok with the experience with the hotel. Racist Staff : Staffs are not Traveler friendly. They don't even smile when they see passengers first time. They behave and see like we were aliens coming straight from other Planets. Even though we dress like neatly. Is this because... More

For no frills travellers.Cheap and clean hotel with comfortable rooms. Placed in the red light quarter 3 min walking to MRT station. 24/24 hours supermarket just outside the hotel. I'm a solo traveller girl and I use to stay there when I'm in town. Despite the reputation of the area, I consider it supersafe.

checked in at hotel 81 star twice as this area is known for cheaper hotel rates. its right in the red light district along the numbered houses but it didn't bother us it is generally peaceful within the area. we always get a standard room that comes with a window and is spacious compared to other hotels in the city....

Room 0722 was noisy due to airconditioner venting. Changed to room 0722 and the nights sleep was peaceful. Better To Choose High Floors. Security was lacking. Working girls, entered and left the building with ease.

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city center, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colorful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
