1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2011

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in Jun 2011. The hotel was designed such that all the superior rooms will be located along the peripheral of each floor and the space in the middle were used to partition into standard rooms. A small narrow aisle is thus formed between the standard and superior room which will lead you to your room. Because of this layout, those who book standard rooms will have no windows and you can hear people talking, kids running and all kinds of noises getting into your room.

When the lift door opens and walking down the narrow aisle to your room, you can feel the stuffiness which is made worst with the scent of medicated oil that people use for massage !!

In addition the room is pretty small and no carpets. The bed is PVC with a thin layer of cotton bed sheet over it - For the price that you are paying, it is definitely not worth the money.

Room Tip: None - Avoid this hotel

Small dirty room, unclean ,hair everywhere ,no window and smelly
forget it when traveling to singapore , take time to find a descent place because this is nt one of them
despite freindly staff the room was horrible , bed was uncomfortable and appaling condition
when i asked why , i was told because i was on a 24 hour vist ! hmm ok , good answer i guess .!

Room Tip: ask first and be prepared to pay to upgrade to room with a window if they have one !

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.
