I am a frequent traveller to Singapore, and every time I arrive other than for official purpose (in which case company books) i stay in one of the Hotel 81 and each time I stay in a different one. The reason is this chain of hotels even though are budget maintain a good standard. So this trip too I did... More

We reached 2 hours earlier and they gave us the room. Thumbs up for that. Located near 2 MRT stations (Rochor and Little India). Good place for food, just 3mins walk to Tekka Market, huge food court there. Great place if you like shopping. Family room had 2 double bed but no window. Room was quite clean, with basic bath...

It's a budget hotel with all basic amenities. Rooms are little bit small for two person but very clean and organized. It is very close to both Rochor and Little India MRT. Most of the popular tourist attractions are within 20 minutes distance. Lots of restaurants around the hotel in Wikie Edge mall and Village hotel. Also many eateries in... More

Staff are very kind. Helpful. However, room quite small. There are many Hotel 81 and close to each other. When you arrive early, just drop your stuff in front of the counter then go out for something first. The efficiency of maid is acceptable as nothing in the room to spend more time.

location is great as it is in central Singapore, access to each area can be done through bus and mrt. Bus stop is about 5-8 meters away from the hotel. Little India MRT is about 3-5 minutes walk. Very safe to walk even on the last mrt schedule at midnight. Wilkie Edge mall is just about 10-15 meters with a... More

Nice clean budget hotel. Located 3 minutes walk from little india MRT station. Receptionist are friendly. When we got a broken air-condition they changed our room immediately. Which actually we like the former room, 206 that larger and has a small wardrobe.

I booked this hotel for my family staying during their trip in Singapore. To be really honest, it is not a good hotel choice for family & kids. There were too many couples in and out and sometimes its noisy at night. The bed sheet wasn't clean and the toilet is small. However, the wifi was working perfectly fine, the... More
