“Basic but good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011

Having stayed in another Hotel 81 this is the best one we've been in as it's fairly modern. The location is good with a food hall next door and for me a five minute walk to the MRT - which is not too bad. Only a ten minute walk to Little India.

On the negative side, the room was small (although you're not going to get a mansion for this price in Singapore) and staff just went through the motions. If you're interested in seeing Singapore and are not looking for a luxury stay then this will do the trick. If you want more home comforts, then look elsewhere.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2009

Don't get caught with this hotel. The disposal linen, the poor air conditioning, space around the bed enough for 1 person to walk around and the wet bathroom with the bits of torn off corners of small packets are there for a reason which my husband and I quickly picked up. The main business of this hotel we assumed from the high turnover of clients at the front desk, appeared to us not to provide normal travelers with accommodation but rather to accommodate the hourly rate which the taxi driver who took us to alternative accommodation verified. Definitely not elegant We had our money refunded not by the Hotel, but by the booking agent after we complained and paid more which was definitely worth it.
