The room is comically tiny but so are all these low cost hotels. The corners of the room could have been cleaner. There are inexpensive restaurants in walking distance. The MRT station is 10 minutes away, busses at the end of the street.

It was a struggle for me to find a pleasant hotel to stay at in Singapore that didn't kill my bank account, but Hotel 81 Premier Star was definitely the right choice. I checked in an hour earlier than I was technically allowed to (1:00 P.M. vs 2:00 P.M.), but they weren't even fazed and gave me my room key... More

We booked this due to our usual hotel having no accommodation available on our night. This was only 8-9 minute walk from Junied MRT station which takes about 20 minutes from the airport. A super fast cheap service. The hotel was very friendly, a quick check in regardless of a group just arriving. Noticed only one water & one coffee... More

Small but clean room; wifi good; beside red district but good hotel for short stay. Nice water pressure but must have bidet in the comfort room. Lavatory clogged. Frontdesk staff not smiling. Aircon very cool, linens are clean. Better to have a slippers inside the room

Having read many reviews about this Hotel chain I was somewhat apprehensive about my stay but I ended up pleasantly surprised. The room is small yes but clean and has all the amenities you need. I believe this property has recently been renovated and it is well maintained. I stayed three nights and had no issues. The front desk staff... More

It's okay for travelling in Singapore on a budget. We stayed for 4 nights. Daily room cleaning. Close to metro station but very noisy hotel! You can here people talking next door and all other sounds people make at night while in bed. Yeah, exactly! Beware, this is in the red lights district. It's not dangerous but it's good to... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Geylang
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.
