We arrived in Singapore at 7pm leaving at 9am the following morning, we wanted something reasonable which was easy to get to. Hotel 81 is 45min to an hour from the airport on the MRT and walking from the station to the hotel, couldnt be easier. Exit the station on Victoria Street, turn right along Victoria St then left onto... More

I arrived on the wrong date (my bad, I booked the wrong dates), and asked to be checked in. Couldn't retrieve my booking number as my phone was dead and I had no charger. The front desk staff were very courteous. Mr. Jovian (& Mr. Shali) were very helpful indeed. Jovian gave me his charger, called up agoda.com on my... More

We have been using this hotel as our lodgings for few years in Singapore for short trips. Its location is excellent from the places we needed to go. The front desk staffs were all very helpful, never not smiling and friendly. The past 2 visits we were served kindly by Ms Malisah. We would also like to praise the house... More

We just wanted to freshen up and drop our luggages. $ 130 a night and that was an upgrade to a room with windows as... More

A very, very last minute travel plan required me to be in Singapore. It was literally getting the approval in the mid morning and fly in the afternoon kind of scenario. My favourite no-frill hotel, Ibis was full and even the run-down SummerView Hotel across the road was full as well. So, I had to choose Hotel 81. I am... More

This is very basic room without the window. That is terrible as you can't see the daylight. The room is tiny and barely fit one person. The bathroom is tiny. The shower combined with toilet seat. No hot water. It's barely warm. You can't control the air conditioner even so you have an control plate. It doesn't work. The place... More

The place is worth staying when travelling to Singapore with family or friends. We arrived early than our check in time. Malisah, the Hotel's Receptionist at that time was kind enough to allow us an early check-in so my mother & aunt were able to rest after a long day of travelling. This place is highly recommended for everyone; not... More

Hotel 81 is a brilliant chain of budget hotels in Singapore, scattered around the city and some in great old buildings. The Hotel 81 Bugis, on Middle Road and near Bugis junction, City Hall and even Raffles, has an excellent location. I always get a Courtyard Room on the 6th floor, which features a small standard room and a really... More
