The man at the reception was not at all friendly and he was kind of bossy and rude. I need to send a complaint to site which booked online, about his words which I end up paying 20 dollars extra for their worthless room. The booking details says suit bathroom. The room I stayed and the bathroom was really tiny... More

Either it is tiny room but other services are up to mark. Staff are wonderful, co-operative and humble. Specially thanks to lovely girl from staff Miss ABBY. who... More

This hotel is located in the red light district but it wasn't a problem at all. There are a lot of restaurants and food courts around and it is close to a bus stop and not so far from a MRT station. The room is tiny, and you can hear people walking through the corridor all the time. Internet is... More

Not at all fancy, clean or welcoming. Barely had a receptionist... He didn't seem too keen on his job. Rooms are grubby but cheap. Alright for a one night stop off bit not a place you like to hang out in...

The room we stayed in was small and it had no window. Judged on the evacuation floor plan we could see this also counts for a lot of the other rooms. In general the prices for hotels in Singapore are too high for the value that you get, but the room was clean, there was free bottled water that was... More

Honestly I would never imagine staying at hotel 81. I live at the bottom of the road...but had an argument with the misses and decided to get out the house for the night. It is what it is. Basic accommodation but it is clean with good aircon. Friendly staff and a good sleep. For the 79 dollars paid I would... More

This hotel is OK for 1 person 1 night as the rooms are small, nowhere to hang clothes, no cupboards and little space for yr suitcase/rucksack. It is certainly showing it's age, the bathroom could have done with a good clean and the shower head holder was falling off the wall! The staff were friendly and helpful. Joo Chiat Road... More

I was looking for somewhere cheap to rest my head between flights, as a solo female traveller I was a little wary about what I was about to put myself through. But honestly I can say that although having its little flaws it is definitely the best cheap hotel I've stayed in Singapore so far.staff extremely helpful and friendly. I... More
