Hotel is located in the middle between airport and city hall but with Singapore metro connection is not a problem at all. It seems brand new, rooms are clean with very good standard. Having in mind prices in Sinagpore (for private room) this solution is really good option. Places to eat - just nearby:)

Yes, Hotel 81 Star is located in the red light district, but I still (even as a solo woman) found it perfectly safe and would happily recommend it to others. Room was small but had good facilities: air conditioning, fridge, safe, private bathroom, tea and coffee making facilities, free bottle of water every day, hairdryer, TV, towels changed daily. For...

We already knew that the hotel was situated in a red lights district, which didn't really bother us. And the hotel did look nice from the outside and at the lobby. Check-in was smooth, the room looked nice at a glance... but smelled of tobacco. I have raised the smelly room issue with the staff who said: "All of our... More

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.
