Head away straight to Hotel 81 if you are on a budget trip or would like to spend less on hotel stay. + Surprised to see the quality & cleanliness of the rooms at the given price. + Lots of branches + Good service + Complimentary Wi-fi & Water Bottle. Overall a good place to stay. But do confirm your... More

It's probably top budget hotel in pricey Singapore but you'll have to experience some "moments" staying there. It's right next to brothels and many bring prostitutes directly to the hotel. The hotel is close to metro station, about 7 minutes walking, and there are good local food around.

Stayed three nights. Location is quite good. My wife found the local working girls a little disconcerting. The room was extremely small with little to recommend it. A/c worked well. Staff tried hard to ignore us, and succeeded. I would leave this hotel to what its core business is. At least you now that housekeeping works 24/7. I realise that... More

Not far from MRT station. Near from many restaurant, especially Chinese. Nice budget hotel, have aircon, hot water, TV, wifi, quite enough. Small but quite comfortable. But i think the receptionist guy was not friendly

The sound proof system is horrible (I wasn't a light sleeper but was woken up by the noise in the hallway int he morning). there is practically no service. the toothbrush in... More

I'm glad this hotel accepts reservation via email. I sent an inquiry about the rate and stated that I do not have a credit card. The hotel promptly replied and gave me a booking reference number. Though stated that it's not a guaranteed booking, they will hold the room for us up to 8:00 PM on date I indicated. The... More

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.
