A Japanese friend came down to Singapore for a short transit and stayed here. Never had good impression about the Hotel 81 chain, maybe I always associate it with some sleazy Geylang scene. Surprisingly, this little hotel is tucked along Middle Road, very accessible to all the amneties nearby and very near to town. We could even stroll to the... More

Although a bit pricey, what I love about this hotel is near Suntec and Bugis junction so you can enjoy shopping. Train station is near and a lot of places to eat. The rooms are small but manageable. They don't have free Wifi.

Yup. 229 for a 12 hours stay on a new year 2016. What do I get? A queen sized bed, a small shower, and a TV in the room. Of course there is a 7-11 downstairs which is very convenient after midnight! Will I patronise again? Probably not and there are much better ones around.

He even assisted us in the online check-in. Though there were no breakfast included and it was a bit expensive, though cheaper than the previous... More

The customer counter in charge supervisor way of talking foreign customer,whoever check in for few hours is rude. This cause customer not happy. Other than that everything is fine. As front customer service supervisor should not talk so rude to customer. At least, let the customer know what the required rule and document in nice talking tone.

It was terrible experience, lots of smell in the room. Small room with no services. This is just FJ hotel nothing else. This has been my life's worst experience. I suggest to be on the road rather than to hotel 81 bugis, even my phone signals were not working in the room. Was unable to sleep whole night.
