What I mean is its located in the red light district of Sg. It was our first time to be in SG and we do not have an idea that this place is not good to stay. Luckily, we never saw any fly by night girls during our stay. The hotel is affordable .. maybe the cheapest of all. I... More

Even when My partner and I went to a local restaurant we were stared... More

Singapore is expensive! In trying to find decent accommodations that were not "dorm type" rooms I came across Hotel 81 (Premier) Star in the Geylang district. For the offerings of Singapore this was a jewel. Yes, this is the red light district of Singapore but I was never hassled in any way and it actually made for some of the... More

The hotel was nice except for the prostitutes that gather outside local hotels in the day time!! The air on was leaking too so had to move rooms and you have to get daily wifi codes which is annoying!!

This hotel is not in the wealthy part of town. It is near 2 subway stations and there are many places to eat around here. The room was clean and comfortable. It was also a very reasonable price for Singapore. I enjoyed my stay. I checked in very late on Nov 8. The Front desk person for my check-in was... More

A budget hotel, safe, clean and good staff. I went for the local entertainment and food and was certainly not dissapointed. Safe deposit at the front desk is reliable and the rooms are kept clean. No fridge but it is budget. I would return here.

The room was not big but it was clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Found out a week ago that it was in the red light district but we don't go out much at night,our husbands found it interesting though. Plenty of good places to eat.
