The room is clean always, the location is very accessible anywhere you go. Attractions, Shopping , FOOODDD are just a step a way. And Chris & Nina the front office people are so kind and accomodating :-)

I didn't know what I was expecting when I checked in but the room I stayed in was extremely small and depressing. The only upsides were the location which I guess is the main selling point for a hotel like this and the free wifi in the rooms which was much needed for us. I know this is a budget... More

Loving the location because it is only some steps away from MRT Chinatown! However, the room is small. It does not matter for traveler tho since we are in for sleeping only. :) The surroundings are full with chinese stores, restaurant, and street vendors.

Not a luxurious room, very small....but clean and so well located. The eating and shopping and atmosphere in Chinatown are fantastic. The MRT station across the road makes the convenience of exploring Singapore so easy....but we also enjoyed the 15 minute walk to Downtown and Marina Bay. We were in Singapore for the Grand Prix and would stay here again... More

I had a short stay in Hotel 81 recently. I paid for the cheapest room with no windows and a really small room. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1. The service is good. The staff in the counter are friendly and were accommodating. I came back slightly and check out 5 mins after 12pm. However the staff was... More

Stayed for 3 nights. Yes the rooms are a little small, but staff were willing to move us to a larger room at the same room rate. Hotel is very clean. Thanks to Nina, Leon and Diong for your great service.

This is a budget level hotel that is very well located to Chinatown and you need to have a very compelling reason to be at this location to enjoy your stay. The room has nothing in it and is that small that you can not fit your suitcase on the floor space but have to place it on the bed... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
