I stayed in Dickson 81 for two nights with my wife and 2 years old baby. Hotel is located in Little India aprox. 10 minutes walk (15 with a backpack) from Bugis MTR. Our room was rather small and had basic equipment but was clean. AC was working pretty good. There's nothing I could complain it was all I expected... More

Placewise very near to little india. Sim lim tower bus stop only 100 feet away. Rooms were quiet. The ac was very cold and difficult to control. This facility does not allow early checkin like the obe in gaylong.Overall the three nights stay was very comfortable

My room was small yet comfortable. It was clean and had the basic required amenities. I had a pleasant stay. The hotel is... More

The hotel was fairly new and clean. The rooms are on the small side, but given the price, they are not too bad. Our room had a view to the nearby mosque, so you could hear the call to prayer at around 4AM! The location is very central, around 8-10 minutes walking to Bugis or Little India SMRT stops, and...

The hotel itself is very very clean, the staff are so polite. Unfortunately we didn't have a lot of days to stay in Singapore, it was so sad... More

Hotel 81 Dickson. Great location between Little India and Bugas metro stations. Great friendly staff. Quiet, clean rooms but small. The best sheets in Asia and clean fluffy towels every day. I got a better price booking on hotels.com that at the desk.

I visited this hotel with my family. Rooms are small but we spent just night at room, the complete day we were roaming in city. Hotel is clean and it is worth what you pay for. not much expensive. avoid late night infront of hotel. this hotel is decent for the budget class. simple and clean.

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
