It's well located, in downtown. To tell the truth it's expensive for the quality of the room. They are too small, bathroom that leave everything wet after a shower. It's not bad, bit it doesn't worth what you pay.

Arrived at this hotel in the evening & had a flight out the next morning. Only stayed here because it was close to the MRT station. Was really easy to get to, only 5 mins walking. The rooms are really small but clean and have everything you need. Would only use this hotel for an over night stay.

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
