Summary based on a one night stay. Part of a budget chain in Little India district. Hotel 81 properties have a reputation, depending on the property, as basic business or “hourly” hotels. This one, according to a local, had a reputation as an hourly, but all indications from my one experience were basic business. Easy to see from the street....

I'll start with a positive, the hotel is clean and the staff were nice, but that is where it ends. We were in a room without a window ($10 extra per night if you want one). The matrass was plastic and hard, with very thin poor quality sheets, it was really clammy and uncomfortable. Cigarette burns on the bedside tables,...

They honestly did their best to meet all our requests including a room with a view, an early check in and even a late check out. Room was comfortable and well kept, great...

Still the same hotel. But i noticed that the hot shower water sometimes does not work so you have to survive the cold(trust me its cold). Its me and my girlfriend's SAFE PICK hotel. Its near bugis which is good for us. So next time maybe we'd be back unless we find someplace better :)

Simple, DO NOT STAY HERE. The rooms are tiny, often without windows. The show sprays into the room. The "No smoking" law is ignored & management do nothing. The walls are thin, so all night you listen to others. The "cable channels" are BBC + one movie channel with subtitles. Also, they often get big groups in who take the...

We stayed in here during CNY. Special notes to remember: - Rate depends on the season. It is much expensive when you book during CNY. - No Breakfast Included but there is a nearby Indian Restaurant. - Very accessible in MRT. Around 5-10mins walk to Little India Station - Rooms are not so big but very clean. - Outlet is...

Spot on as an affordable hotel, we only stayed here for one night. We chose a room with window. Only a five minute walk from the Subway station, which is an excellent way to get around in Singapore. (Buy the tourist pass for the Subway). The shower is literally in your bathroom, no curtain or door separates it from the...

Staying in Little India

Neighborhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly colored saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colorful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Center, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colorful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
