“Comfortable cell”
Reviewed February 28, 2010

Room very very small, not much floor space only the bed, however was clean and secure. Staff were very pleasant and friendly. Free broadband internet with my laptop really worked although there was not really any where to put the computer apart from the bed. Convenient to walk to Little India and the Bugis and Bras Basah areas. Good price for a place to rest while stopping on the way from Australia to Europe. Pillows did not have real pillow cases but I always travel with my own pillow. Previously stayed in Hotel 81 Joo Chiat in a deluxe room. Much better, more floor and proper window. Will try to choose something a little bigger next time but would stay again if I could not find anything else.

This branch of Hotel 81 is a budget hotel which doesn't feel like a budget hotel. Don't get me wrong, it's expensive as far as the rest of Asia goes - we paid $80 (Singapore) per night, but this seemed pretty good for Singapore. A lot of the budget options are dorms with shared facilities, so this place was a good find.

On the downside, the rooms are very small so you have to be aware of this, but for a couple of nights we found it perfectly managable. There were plenty of upsides: it was very secure, location was great (10mins walk to Orchard Rd), the staff were very helpful with a couple of queries we had, the rooms are clean and well presented and all have LCD TVs and DVD players which is a nice touch. Overall, I would recommend this place.
