This hotel of the chain is located right in the heart of the Red Light Area of Singapore. This hotel also appears to be regularly used for the same reason! Not the best feeling if you want to stay here, right? The rooms are smelly at times, while cleaning is regular the smell wont go away! Staff at the reception... More

We stayed 5 nights and if being honest it was one of our only choices, we wanted a private bedroom with ensuite and we got it, it's overpriced but so is all of singapore so in relative terms it's cheap! Rather dated inside, staff were fine but far from friendly, Internet worked most of the time but incredibly slow and... More

I booked a room in this hotel unexpectedly after my original hotel messed up my booking. Being near to my purpose in Singapore (Singapore Indoor Stadium), I didn't mind that this hotel is located in the red light district of Singapore. Beerhouse left and right, prostitutes outside the hotel 24 hours a day, I didn't mind those at all BUT...... More

Staff not too helpful or friendly. Hot water ran out fast. Clean and comfortable. Central to bus and train. In red light area. Price good. Would go there again if needed Unable to use 1-800 numbers. A/C was good.Room smaller than my cruise ship cabin.

You can't complain about apartment size in Singapore, so prepare yourself before you check in here. There's a slim passage to walk around the bed, and the bathroom is a bit cramped, but it's enough to get a good night's sleep. Aljunied MRT station is about a 10-15 minute walk away, and from there you're only 10 minutes away from... More

Perfectly fine hotel if you don't mind prostitutes on the street nearby in the evening. Room is basic but clean and satisfactory. Only problem is you can't open the windows. Staff was friendly and helpfull. Area around hotel is perfectly safe, full of restaurants. I would stay here again if I want a cheap option.

Hotel 81 is a chain of cheap hotels situated in Gaylang, Singapore. These places are definitely no frills, as you get a small room with a comfy, clean bed and a small bathroom. Good aircon. Only one plug socket which is a bit of an issue, reception didn't rent the extensions. So if you plan to charge your devices, you... More

I am a regular traveler to Singapore and was surprised to find this little gem... good location, and surprising value but it was the staff and their helpfulness and friendliness that made this stay a real treat. I booked on line and have had some shockers but this one is real good value.

A great hotel for budget traveller. I just got around 200SGD for 3 nights. I booked 1 room. I stayed with 2 of my friends, ofcourse 1 person had to play hide and seek when enter the hotel. For the room itself, the room was small. 3 luggages just seems crowded. But the bed is big enough for 3 people... More

The hotel is located in a busy prositution area, so avoid it unless that is why you are there! The interior needs refurbishment/maintenance and the place smelled like smoke, including the corridors and room. The staff were polite, though...
