We just stayed for four days and three nights here last month and here are what I think about this Hotel: Negative: 1. It is in the Red District of SG. You see a lot of prostitutes on the street. (Maybe good a positive thing to some.. hahaha) 2. The room is very small and the beds as well. 3.... More

The location of the hotel is near the Aljuneid Station of the MRT. Located at the Geylang area, there are many hawker food stalls around. The rooms are small, with the basic needs such as TV, hot and cold shower, AC, and bottled water. The room also has an electric water heater for coffee and tea. No cabinets but the... More

If you don't mind, hotel 81 is located in the red light district area if it is at Geylang Road (Please check the many hotel locations) At night, this area is swarm by foreign workers seeking adult entertainment. Not advisable for family oriented visitors. Rooms are extremely small, Bathroom is a squeeze between toilet, sink and shower point. For visitors... More

Regardless of other reviews who may believe it was not one of the best hotels available, I've always been very satisfied with staying here again and again whenever I make my annual trip to Singapore. The best consideration about the location of the hotel is that it's only a ten minute walk to the nearest MRT station (Alljunied) and VERY... More

Small dusty rooms with stained bedlinnen and nowhere to place your things. Shower has to be taken over toilet and sink. Positioned in a red light district with mostley halal food available and no western options availible at all. But its cheap and that cant be said for many places in Singapore!

Unclean sheets. Very bad smell in the room and on the lobby. Window blocked, not allowed to open. I could not sleep because of the smell and bad air. Staff was ok. I could leave my luggadge there after checkout somewhere next to the exit door. For the money you can still find better.

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.
