Ok hotel for an overnight stay, but not for a holiday. Bed was comfortable, but aircon was too noisy. The bathroom looked old and stained. TV was dusty. Staff in reception were polite and did their job. Hotel was located close to shopping, restaurants and tourist attractions.

Everything was wrong...impolite staff, dirty toilets, bad quality toiletries, insufficient supplies, old and tired lift. It was not a cheap hotel too, there are many better options available in Singapore.

Male receptionists are very friendly. The room is very clean. There is a personal ref with bottled water and a free coffee. The wifi is also reliable. We felt comfortable. I will go back in this hotel :)

Very nice location, but poor quality. 3 bed room was in fact 2 bedroom with a small extension bed for the 3rd. Almost slept on the floor. Cleanliness was just Ok. However location is perfect to visit spore by foot.

We were looking for a nice hotel with a good price. The price of this hotel is cheaper compared to others but their standards are way below expected. Headboard is so dusty, floor is grainy, shower curtain has stains, etc. The building is old but atleast make your services better.

It would be unfair to give Hotel 81 Bencoolen a totally negative review as we were stranded in Singapore late at night, tried four other hotels that were fully booked and when we dragged our bags into the Hotel 81 we were welcomed and given a (the last available) room. It was expensive by home standards but as its central... More

This is the ideal budget hotel for those who just need clean standard rooms to retire. Basic toilet amenities are provided plus free wifi. Location couldn't be more strategic. Recommended, one thumb up.

The hotel car park is littered with rubbish and is waterlogged. The 2 rooms I booked are smelly. Air cond not blowing cool air, just stale air. No face towels given. No bathroom floor towels, just a USED FILTHY rug to dry your feet! Totally unliveable! Should not lease out the rooms even though they are planning to cease operations... More
