“Small Room and Not Friendly staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

The Hotel is not Friendly for the staff , Price is more expensive than Fragrance Hotel. Check out time at 11.00 , late check out 15SGD per hour. No restaurant , No Mini bar . I think had better if you need the cheap ones do not choose this hotel

Room Tip: Had better find fragrance cheaper price and bigger room.

Very basic budget hotel in Chinatown. Location is excellent for Chinatown, riverfront area & close to MRT etc. Tiny room with only basic amenities (our room had no window) and only a hand-shower type bathing facility next to the loo, so expect to make the whole bathroom wet when showering!! Very friendly staff & overall a clean & well run establishment. If all you need is a place to sleep & don't spend any time at the hotel, this place is fine.

Nothing much to say about this hotel - good location, MRT, restaurants, Clarke Quay all in walking distance. However rooms are mega small, no fridge, no desk, no wardrobe/ hanger. At least got very good shower, internet is okay too. Would not want to stay again but for easy accommodation in an ever more expensive Singapore not too bad a choice.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

The rooms are small but clean. There was no cupboard in the room. Apart from that had almost all basic facilities. Internet connection is provided free if booking is done online. Internet speed is decent. The main advantage of this hotel being in the central location. Hotel does not have a restaurant but there are a lot of food joints near by.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room with window in Singapore.

Hotel 81 Chinatown a part of teh Hotel 81 chain in Singapore is a reasonable budget hotel to stay in Singapore. The standard room is a tad small but the superior plus and family rooms are good. Good location.

Room Tip: select a superior plus or a family room

this hotel is right in the centre of chinatown, location is perfect just opposite the city's MRT station. Staff are nice polite and friendly. This is a hotel for tourist on a buget and rooms are small and compact. No swimming pool or restaurant but there are many delicious delicacy and shopping malls within walking distance to hotel.

Good location,staffs & local people are very friendly. Very convenience to get down the Food street. Frog porridge and chilli crabs are so delicious. ( special foods here)
The price was so high, rooms are so small ( just depend on your luck to get a comfy room)
