Because we were arriving in Singapore after midnight we booked a night here primarily to get some sleep for the night. And for that purpose it was adequate. But don't expect anything remotely up-market. There is a bed and a pokey toilet/shower and absolutely nothing else. It was an interim measure before we checked into our main 4-5 star hotel.... More

It got some kind of the bug bit me during the night or even during before bedtime, it still bit me which make me clear here that the cleanness is not enough. Air-condition never clean. The hotel location is very nice, easy to take bus or MRT train.

It was a small room but it had everything. Very close to the mrt 10 mins walking. Hotel was tidy and clean. It was easy to get to the air port by the train. Good value for the money we spend for our stay!

The location is good, food and night life was a plus point, but the condition of bed and Aircon was not to standard. Specially Air-condition, it is too noisy. Room too small without space to put luggage.

Singapore is very expensive and the Hotel 81 chain is one of the few reasonably priced hotels on the outskirts of the city. It is situated in Geylang district, sometimes called red-light, however I never experienced any problems. The streets are full of foreign workers and immigrants, there are shops and cheap restaurants serving moslim, hindu, chinese etc food. There... More

the room is small, sometimes noisy but clean. it is only 10 mins far from the nearest MRT. It offers a place for you to take a shower and sleep, bu nothing else. The neighborhood around is tricky, research on google before you book a room.

Rooms are clean and comfortable. Hotel neighborhood is very close to the red light district - be aware if you mind Staff was ok friendly, room service was below average WiFi connection is very poor, so if you need a stable internet connection for business, this hotel isn't recommended.

The rooms are small, good for overnight stay (sleep only). Located at Geylang which is notorious for seedy nightlife and immigrant workers. Foodstall selling Indian, Chinese foods are easily available and stay open until late at night.

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.
