“Fine hotel for ok price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

Lovely personel, very kind and helpfull. We just slept there for a few hours. The room was basic but ok. No windows, but we got the attic room! Hotel was clean! Bit worn down, for short stay just perfect!

Single male travelling overnight. Budget price for Singapore. Was clean but small. Turned off air-con as too cold for me. Shower,bath, toilet, bed, fridge, towels. Was room 211, quiet, though it was a Tuesday night. Staff friendly and helpful. You pay for what you get...no complaints.

Room Tip: Room 211, no window, quiet corner room, second floor.

the room I booked was on 2nd floor. room was extremely small. No refrigerator and VCD player. room door like made of paper, no noise isolation, you can hear people walking, talking at corridor, very difficult to sleep. they should lower down the room rate to S$50.00 .

Room Tip: not recommended !!

The hotel service is good, but the different indoor facilities, there is no refrigerator and VCD players (like my room) but there are also no facilities refrigerator. In this hotel is also no lobby for a place to relax. In addition to all, the facilities in this hotel is quite good and the service was satisfactory.
Thank you for the good service :D

Room Tip: second floor room is best for travellers because its strategic location :D

You know what you're getting with the Hotel 81 chain -- secure, clean and cheap accommodation, along with small rooms, no extra facilities (except free WiFi) and service that varies between indifferent and distant.

Hotel 81 Sakura is faithful to these traits. Well located in the middle of Little Saigon (locals will tell you it's a sleazy area, but this is Singapore, so you're quite safe), the hotel is perhaps a bit newer and better designed than some of the others in the chain, but it's nothing special.

There are plenty of restaurants around, and public transport nearby.

As long as you understand the Hotel 81 philosophy, and aren't expecting a warm welcome which will set you up for a nice holiday, this is a good choice.

Room Tip: It may be that some rooms are internal -- that is, without external windows. Check at reception.

My Son prebooked this hotel and paid through a booking agency.
on arrival at night on10th July Douglas was told he had no booking.
after a lot of stress and drama on top of his long trip to Singapore they found his booking.
He had called by phone to check his booking and was told he had no booking and he said to them to get on top of it because it is booked and paid for so start looking.Well, guess what? Yes they did nothing and only started when he arrived and complained yet again.
After all this he was put in the only available room which was a dog box with no window which he was trying to avoid. He is not happy at all and has lost his money to them because it is non refundable apparently even if they cannot provide what one ordered. SO BE AWARE of this particular hotel and its poor management.
Both Douglas and I use hotel 81 often as we pass through Singapore on business .THIS DISCOMFORT AT OUR COST WILL STOP US USING THIS PARTICULAR HOTEL IN FUTURE AS THE ROOM BOOKING CANNOT BE GUARRANTEED UNFORTUNATELY.
Best get on top of it please Senior management.Oh! I might mention also that if you dont like hearing some young lady screaming in delight or faking it, at what she is being served in another room then this is no place for you.

Room Tip: Absolutely no gurrantee you will get what you booked and paid for until you are there.
