After reading the reviews, I had set my expectations quite low for this hotel but it turns out I had a very good experience. Yes this is not a luxury hotel by any means but for US $50 a night , what do you expect in expensive Singapore? I received a small but clean room with great working ac, continuous... More

The room was dirty and bathroom also. You can't let fresh air inside, because windows are screwed. Sheets and pillows were with stains and strange smell. Indoor unit of air condition was pooring water and when we told that to the girl at the reception, she said that they will fix that, but they didn't ... Location is not really... More

This is one of several Hotel 81 properties in the Geylang area and you can use your imagination as to the reason. However it is clean, there is no soliciting. Good proximity to many eateries and about 10 min walk to MRT stations. Our room was clean but the single beds were rather narrow - more like a massage table.

like all 81 hotel, the service and facilities is averagely the same. The room have windows, and if you are lucky the window will be facing the street. It is in a red light district, have plenty food stall also near to MRT and bus station.

The Hotel81 Lucky is located close to the metro station "Aljunied" - close connection to the airport, as well as city centre. The hotel itself is clean, quiet, with free wi-fi and friendly staff. Breakfest can be eaten in Victoria Food Court nearby. Recommended for backpackers requiring some rest and for more demanding travellers. You can leave your luggage in... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city center, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colorful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
