Hotel 81 is good only for transit or short stay like 2 days but not for long stays. Not recommended for families for sure as it is pretty small. It is a good budget hotel in Singapore, staff were very friendly and helpful. The room boy outside the room was really noisy with load music all the time as the... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in June 2014. We booked online as there was a good promotion on. At this point we had already been travelling for a few months, so our budget wasn't as healthy as it once was. For the price, this place wasn't too bad. The bed was comfortable overall, but there was... More

The lobby looks nice and the staff seems pretty helpful. There are a lot of hallways and a lot rooms, so don't expect a window. Our room was small and so humid. The towels didn't dry at all. The ventilator in the ceiling made loud and very annoying noises. The staff managed to turn the noise off the second time... More

Two of us aged 62 & 60 years with our wives stayed in this hotel for 6 days from 13-8-2014. This is located at a walking distance from a lot of Indian restaurants like Komalas, Saravana Bhavan, Bikeneris, Kailash Parbat, etc. & also quite close to Mustafa. Has good deluxe rooms (we stayed in room numbers 324 & 235) although... More

Hotel is good. Clean. Staffs were helpful. Locked out myself twice, the staffs were really fast in responding. Rooms are small and cozy. Most rooms don't have windows though. Stayed there for 10 days. Close to Bugis and Little India MRT. Amenities like 7 eleven are close. And some surprises....

The website picture did not prepare us for the area surrounding the hotel. We didn't like the dirtiness of the area, including the gum stuck on the sidewalks, something you don't see much in Singapore because of the prohibition on gum. Yes, the massive road construction on Jalan Basar is not the fault of the hotel but it made a... More

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
