I have chosen this hotel for its convenient location and easy access. I stayed in hotels in in USA (Washington DC, New York, Cincinnati and Orlando) and Australia (Sydney and Brisbane) but I feel the rent for this hotel is comparatively more for its standard.

This is our first time at Singapore and also our first time at this Hotel. It is close to the city and a nearby train station. Good and friendly staff. However, the bathrooms are not clean and the sink was cracked. Apart from that its a good hotel. You get what you pay for!

this is my second time staying at this hotel. if you are on budget and solo traveller, this hotel is good. its very affordable and the location is great. the walk to dhoby ghaut mrt is very direct.. about 10 minutes walk. there is a local cineplex and many eateries just within 5 minutes walk too.

Biggest critical comment from us: there is no safe in the room! If you want to eat breakfast in the room (there is a kettle and instant coffee and tea), then there is one big armchair/a mini-sofa. So the 2nd person can sit on the bed or you can cuddle up on the armchair. So 2 smaller ones instead would... More

We got tricked into this hotel after looking at the web pix - don't believe them at all. Rooms are tiny, the 'sofa bed' that turned our small double supposedly into a triple is hardly fit for a dog. But much worse still, the plumbing and bathrooms has a massive mould and mildew problem causing the bathroom to stink. This... More

I've made a reservation for a non-smoking room with a mini-bar fridge but was given a handicap room instead where me & my wife are a normal person. Upo questioning one of the staff, he claimed that it was not a handicap room but later was told by another staff that it was where eventually a room change was done... More

Front desk staff: Joey Lau who was outright rude. She was completely out of line despite her manager (Montree) was there. Thankfully the manager was professional and helpful. Joey was an epitome of worst hotel service staff. I think management should check the cctv to review this utterly unbecoming hotel employee. Hotel 81, does not mean you cannot provide top... More

Great location, basic accommodation - not fancy, professional staff, very clean with free wifi but no included breakfast. It will be even better when the MRT subway station right next to it is completed.
