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.

Extremely small room and bathrooms. Noises can be heard through walls (thin walls?) and the air conditioner is not well functioning. WiFi is also not so stable. Though convenient to reach MRT station but the hotel is not really comfortable to stay at. Sorry no more next visit.

Room & toilet is basic and small. Beds aren't very comfortable. No proper blankets.The walls between rooms are very thin and you can hear other patrons. The only plus point is location & convenience as MRT, malls and 7-11 are nearby. Hotel has no lobby area for patrons to sit but their staff is friendly.

The Hotel 81 in a good location and easy to find out. The Hotel 81 also nearly MRT station, food court centre and shopping centre. The room is so clean, dry and tidy. The hotel also has free wifi in the room.

We stayed for 2 nights moving out from Hotel 81 - Tristar which was far better from Bugis. The room is very small and the air-condition is not working well. Plus the rate is much higher compare to 81 Tristar. We can hear a lot of noise outside. So we're not gonna stay again if we visit to Singapore in... More

That's right folks, Bugis 81 is a 'knocking shop'.. a brothel! I arrived into a small reception where male guest were accompanied by very attractive women and were paying for the hire of the rooms by the hour, which seemed a little strange. When I entered the room, it struck me that there were no windows and a pungent smell!... More

It was our first time to go to SG so we wanted to stay in a not so expensive place so Hotel 81 was perfect for us. It is a narrow building but the rooms are okay, not big nor small but quite comfortable. We were lucky to get a room facing the road so it did not seem crowded... More

The hotel is situated in the centre of bugis. Although there's nothin much around for tourists. It's very convenient. The rooms are affordable and wont bleed your wallet. However, the rooms are small and the toilet is too small in my opinion. The room i am staying in is the one without windows. The staff are friendly tho. The wifi... More
