“Decent but not worth the price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

The staff were reasonably friendly and the hotel as a whole was clean and seemed to have benefited from a recent upgrade. The room had the basics and appeared clean, but it did not have window and the fan was very loud. The air was very stuffy and the bed was too hard and the springs could be felt. The location is not bad though, near Little India and right across from a good hawker centre.

Room Tip: Phone and ask for one with windows.

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

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.
