Hotel 81 (Bencoolen) is a case of you get what you pay for. It's an economical option in a city that can become expensive fast if, like us, you're needing rooms to accomodate 5. If you really just want somewhere clean and convenient to sleep then this is a good option. If you want the option to come home and... More

The location is reasonable and we chose the hotel for one night based on that. The general condition of the hotel and the rooms are far from impressive but anyway it worked ok for us as we more or less only slept there. Choose the hotel for its reasonable location and price but do not expect anything more.

The best thing about this hotel is the location, it is just a few steps from MRT Bras Basah exit D/E but currently there is a construction site of new MRT Bencoolen station which will take place until 2017. The hotel room is ok, have place to lay down my small luggage. The room is average, bathroom is clean but... More

I recently booked and stayed in the Hotel 81 Bencoolen as I was in the city for a very short while. I chose the hotel after reading the readers reviews on Trip Advisor and that despite been a budget hotel was ranked about half way in Trip Advisor’s ranking of all hotels in Singapore. Well, the hotel is terrible. I... More

If you're looking for a budget friendly accommodation, this is good for you. Close to Bras Basah Station and to a few bus stops. Construction is ongoing in front of the hotel (Downtown Line, Bencoolen station). But if you're just looking for a place to sleep. This is good for you. Considering the price of accommodations in Singapore, this is... More
