“Great Location, Safe & Family Friendly”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I stayed here for 1 night, 2 days. We are a family of 4 adults and booked a 'Family Room' for our stay. The hotel is situated in 'Little India' area, and close to Orchard Road, Train station and many shops and restaurants. Our Family Room was big,clean and new with plenty of storage space. Room had fridge, kettle, hair-dryer, tv, ac free bottles of water, tea & coffee. WiFi is also available for Free and its fast (just ask the lobby for password) Bathroom was also decent size, clean and new with soap, shower cap and comb (all free), however its like a wetroom, so when you shower everything gets wet. Also our room didnt have a window, but we were not bothered about that. To the left of the hotel (going towards Serangoon Road Little India) there is a 7/11 supermarket for drinks and snack (very small) and indian restaurants. To right of the hotel (towards Orchard Road) if you walk for 5 min on Selegie Road between Sophia Road and Orchard Road there is McDonalds, KFC, Starbucks and a food court. The hotel staff are ok and looked after our luggage the next day when we checked out, so we could do sightseeing. Singapore Flyer & Marina Bay Sands is 20-25min walk from hotel. Overall a great stay, safe area and family friendly.

Room Tip: Many hotel rooms in Singapore have no windows, and ours did not. Make sure you do your research if y...

I stayed for 4 days. The total time I spent was only around 12 hours in this hotel. It is really suitable for those backpackers and those who are into shopping. I think this is the only Hotel 81 that allows 4 adults in a room plus its near to Little India MRT. It's really clean ! Though there will be flood every time u shower.

Picture in the internet and actual are stark contrast. Exceptionally small. It's like trap in can of sardines. Clean though. Consistent flow of hot stream water. But basically not recommended for family. We clearly noticed this hotel is for lovers' short time stay as relatively heavy influx of them were noticed in the lobby queuing. Some receptionist on the other hand are rude. Very far from MRT station.

Room Tip: stay in corners. walling sound proof is very poor. You could hear in the other room clattering, soun...

You get what you pay for so we did not expect a 3 star hotel or a backpacker bunk beds type lodging. For a budget hotel room, it was clean but very crammed, with hardly any space for luggage or movement. Toilet/bathroom was clean but be prepared for a flood when you have a shower!! Downstairs lobby was equally cramped, don't expect a warm welcome here. Good thing it is pretty central.

Room Tip: 7th floor seems ok, expect all rooms are equally tiny.

I book this hotel at the last mi ute through latestays.com that provides a better price then agoda and more accurate picture of the place you will stay.

This is not a tourist place and dont promote this place as it. Its a transit hotel with a good location. Near mrt so easy to reach from the airport, 15 minutes by walk from orchard and the walk is in interesting since you will discover the university of art and other i terting things. You cannot get lost the way is really easy. You are near little india too.

The other good thing you have near by a 7/11 and restaurants open 24 hours.

Regarding the hotel i didnt expect much but at least you can get some sleep or rest after a busy day.

You can hear everything from your room you hear people walking in the corridor and the other rooms on the same floor. I didnt find any sleep at all since this hotel even at 3 o'clock since to be busy by short stays guest "guy with girls."

The room was small 20 sqm, the shower with the toilet but good point hot water but no pressure.
They provide free internet that i needed this one reason i stay there coz in singapore they charge crazy prices for internet. So free internet is good when its working! It was working but u need to setup the password every twenty minutes. So annoying.

I didnt upload any pictures since you got all already here. So please dont stop there for tourism, for one night transit its ok.

We`ve stayed in this Hotel for two nights without sleep. OK the rooms are clean but very small. The mattresses are covered with a plastic film, thats hygienic but not comfortable to sleep. Now I know what the plastic-film is for. If you want to sleep in this hotel you need ear plugs, because of the noises from the other rooms. Many couples book this "Hotel" for just 2 hours to have fun. This fun ist very loud and the couples have an all-night party.
