This hotel has just upgraded the facilities and it looks nice. The staff are very helpfully and they provide you with the best service. The location is also pretty good, since you have the MRT station just 7 minutes away and the bus station is closer. This make is easy to get transport to the central Singapore.

POSITIVES – Good price for Singapore, like a new travel lodge, everything you could want, impressive room design. NEGATIVES – Not much – no soap in hand basin. SUMMARY – Overall I was very pleasantly pleased with the hotel and would recommend it for very serious consideration. Read on about location. DETAILS I stayed for 3 nights in February 2015.... More

The hotel is 10 mins walking from Aljunied MRT station, on the East West line that goes to Changi Airport. It is quite cheap by Singapore standards but my room was spotless. Fridge, TV, kettle with tea/coffee and complimentary water. I was disappointed by the wifi (regularly disconnected and slow performance) and the fact that I could hear other patrons... More

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

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.
