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

it's a typical hotel room that you would like to book if you plan to stay longer outside the city and enjoy the beauty of Singapore than to take rest inside your room. The room is just enough for sleeping, no more no less. The comfort room is too small for you to take shower. The customer service is just... More

Stayed for 4 nights last February 7th. Located downtown, near 2 MRT stations Bugis and City Hall. Easy access to Bugis shopping center and nearby malls. Room is clean, quiet and has free fast internet, bathroom is ver small. If you are claustrophobic don't get this hotel. Staff is friendly and easy to talk to. This basic hotel is recommended...

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.
