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

Nice quiet room on the 14th floor at the back. Not much to see from the tiny window, but, hey, I'm not in Singapore to see things from a window! Really close to the lower end of Orchard Road for the big ticket shoppers. Really close to Bugis and Little India for the holiday shoppers! Raffles Hotel is an easy... More
