You know what you're getting with the Hotel 81 chain -- secure, clean and cheap accommodation, along with small rooms, no extra facilities (except free WiFi) and service that varies between indifferent and distant. Hotel 81 Sakura is faithful to these traits. Well located in the middle of Little Saigon (locals will tell you it's a sleazy area, but this... More

GOOD Location: Joo Chiat is a great stretch of road for foodies. We ate at Fatboy's burger bar, which is just about 10mins walk away from the hotel. 112 Katong the shopping mall, Awfully Chocolate and many other notable eateries are located in this area too. Room: We really liked the Japanese ryokan-inspired style of the room. It is a... More

Safe and nice place to crash after a whole day of walking around Singapore. Very accesible to and from the airport. Located amidst the red light district. Safe place though despite the location. Front desk is very accomodating.

Singapore is expensive. For US$75, this hotel is a fair value in an overpriced but gorgeous city. The rooms in this hotel all seem to be abused by smokers who use the furniture as ashtrays, and a pall of cigarette smoke greets you on every floor. Try to get a room in the back, since the front of the hotel... More

We arrived at this hotel after midnight and were happy to be told we could have at late checkout at 1pm in the afternoon at no extra cost. Room was clean and comfortable, tea/coffee making facilities in the room, tv, fridge, aircon, clean towels and free wifi were everything we needed. Very good and would reccommend.

This hotel is a very basic low cost budget hotel. If you are just in need of a 1 night stay in Singapore then this is fine. We stayed here for just the 1 night - we are family of 4, and had the family room. It had a double and 2 singles. Clean & tidy but quite old. The... More
