Stayed from 6th July to 11th July. The initial rooms allocated for me and my family was not suitable as it was facing the road. We finally got the one facing the Swimming Pool on Level 3 and my family loved it. The rooms were clean and practical. And the staff was courteous and very helpful. Make sure you reserve... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night before we flew to Penang. Was not impressed with the staff at the front desk. Found them rude and not very helpful. Was surprised when I gave my Visa card for payment and he asked me my PIN number. Room was ok but the bathroom was filthy. Internet does not work and... More

We are regular patrons in this hotel. Checked in more than 3 times every year whenever we come by on a vacation. Unfortunately lately we see the standards have been declining. We always choose pool level rooms for our kids but our last stay was a bit unpleasant. Saw groups of people gambling and treating the hotel too much like... More

My family and I approached the front desk as walk-in guests on March 20th. Initially we wanted to book 3 rooms for ourselves, however we were so appalled and disgusted by the attitude of the staff ROLAND (I wish I could have his name in bold!) at the desk, we ended up only booked one room for my sister and...

Stayed here in May 2014. Chose this hotel for the spacious room, which indeed was big and the great price! The hotel is very basic, staff is helpful. There's no cafe or restaurant but there's a 24-hour cafe right next door that serves local fare. There's also a convenience store nearby. If you're looking to relax and chill then this... More

Stayed 3 nights in this hotel and it was good, we got a very spacious bed and spacious room. Room was clean but they also have to consider cleaning the mini bar, table tops, water heater and especially the bath tub carefully. Some receptionists were friendly and helpful but the ones who were there when we arrived were arrogant. Hotel... More

Amongst all of the budget hotels in singapore, Hotel 81 Tristar is one of the good ones. The pool was clean and so are the rooms. Rooms are furnished with a king sized bed and it was very spacious. More importantly is the convenience of food - all within walking distance. If you're ok with the normal local food at... More

Staying in Joo Chiat

Neighborhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighborhood is packed with colorful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
