Very basic budget hotel in Chinatown. Location is excellent for Chinatown, riverfront area & close to MRT etc. Tiny room with only basic amenities (our room had no window) and only a hand-shower type bathing facility next to the loo, so expect to make the whole bathroom wet when showering!! Very friendly staff & overall a clean & well run... More

At least got very good shower, internet is okay too. Would not want to stay again but for easy accommodation in an ever more expensive Singapore not too bad a... More

The rooms are small but clean. There was no cupboard in the room. Apart from that had almost all basic facilities. Internet connection is provided free if booking is done online. Internet speed is decent. The main advantage of this hotel being in the central location. Hotel does not have a restaurant but there are a lot of food joints... More

Hotel 81 Chinatown a part of teh Hotel 81 chain in Singapore is a reasonable budget hotel to stay in Singapore. The standard room is a tad small but the superior plus and family rooms are good. Good location.

this hotel is right in the centre of chinatown, location is perfect just opposite the city's MRT station. Staff are nice polite and friendly. This is a hotel for tourist on a buget and rooms are small and compact. No swimming pool or restaurant but there are many delicious delicacy and shopping malls within walking distance to hotel.

Good location,staffs & local people are very friendly. Very convenience to get down the Food street. Frog porridge and chilli crabs are so delicious. ( special foods here) The price was so high, rooms are so small ( just depend on your luck to get a comfy room)

I had a supposed 'superior' room - right on a main ( and very noisy road ), with no room to swing a cat around the fairly hard ( and plastic covered ) bed. Aircon only able to be switched off via the front desk. No bedside light-switch. Wet room...which ( after a shower ) had everything soaked ! Horrible... More
