Tiny tiny rooms, could hardly move, bathroom the same . Continuous noise that prevented any decent sleep going on throughout the night, seemed to be the old air conditioning .. Not too bad a location ... Staff were ok but nothing great, area was a local one, and cheap food is available nearby, beyond that nothing special to say.

Before selecting this hotel you should understand two things – 1) Hotels in general are very expensive in Singapore. 2) This is a budget hotel in an expensive city. A common mistake we often make is to expect things which a budget hotel is supposed to provide and forget the fact that we have opted the hotel simply because we... More

Critics of the hotel forget a very important factor. We are talking about Singapore , one of world's most expensive cities when it comes to living costs (and hotels). So, for about 60 Singapore Dollars a night , you get a small room , a clean bathroom with hot water, a small fridge (in some rooms) , a TV, Wi-Fi... More

I would agree with the other positive reviews about this hotel. Just average, not bad if you are looking for a less costly hotel in this city. The staff let me check in three hours early. The bed sheets and bathroom was clean. The fact that this hotel is in the red light district was no issue as no one... More

Smallish room with attached bathroom was not exceptionally clean, but it did have aircon, TV, and the bed was comfortable. We arrived late and took the airport shuttle here, but discovered in the morning that it is relatively close to an MRT station (under 10 minutes' walk). You do have to transfer several times to get to the city centre,... More

Everyting is good except one male in the front desk. Kind of old guy that don't seem to be helpful to the guest. Rest of the person in the front desk is very nice and helpful. The rooms not that big but very comfortable to stay... Value for money... Thanks Hotel 81 Orchid...

We had to live closer to the convention centre as it was a business trip and we were visiting an exhibition. The area around the hotel is very sleazy and has a funny smell. Not the safest for single women. Rooms were small and kind of dingy and damp. Cleanliness was okay considering the room were old and there was... More

Stayed here for two nights, good location on orchard road not far from St Andrew's church. Room extremely small, more like a pod. Would not recommend for long duration due to lack of storage. But key feature is its location
