Cheap. Basic rooms with plastic covered mattresses which did not seem to hold the sheets. There was a chemical smell which seemed to effect my breathing. There was a lack of early morning breakfast facilities in the area. It depends on your budget and time there but my feeling is that one has to, if one can, bite the bullet... More

We just wanted a reasonably priced room to rest in on the way to Europe. And then we searched! It seems that accommodation in Singapore is very expensive. I was a bit apprehensive about Hotel 81 Dickson, due to mixed reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. The room was spacious and clean and the desk staff were very friendly and obliging.... More

We stayed two nights in the windowless deluxe double room. We chose this hotel for the majority of its location in Little India and its price. We normally stay in hostels while in Singapore, but this time we decided to try a hotel. The hotel was very clean, bed was comfy, few tv channels, and they held our bags for... More

To everyone who reviewed this hotel as "excellent" or "very good", you might be at the wrong hotel. This is one of the worst hotels that I have ever stayed. Imagine this, the aircon smells rotten, the fridge was dirty, the air filter where the air from where the aircon was coming from was full of dirt and molds.. and... More

My husband and I are budget travelers, and with Singapore being an expensive city, decided to go with Hotel 81. Rooms were small and simple but had everything you need. Our first room had mold on the a/c vent, and with my asthma, we asked to switch rooms. They gave us a new room right away. Walls were thin, so... More

Singapore has always been home for me. Stayed in a hotel in Singapore for the first time. We stayed here for 6 nights. The Hotel is very cozy and the location is fantastic. On one side you have Serangoon rd and on the other Bugis. Both at a distance of 10 mins walk. They have a 24hr food center downstairs.... More

We stayed for 3 days 2 nights. This hotel is perfect for tourists. At the time, many Indonesian people who stay there. Check-in process was very quick and we were allowed to enter the room at 11 am, what a surprise! Because included in a budget hotel, it is no wonder if we could hear the noise from the next... More
