The place was very clean, and located in the Arab Street area (one of Singapore main attractions), in-between two subway stops. Close to restaurants and shops. Walk to subway is nice. Easy to get to and from airport.
Friendly efficient staff, big thanks for allowing to check in early and keeping our luggage beyond check-out up to our departure time.
Clean, modern, small but we don't spend time at a hotel, so we don't care about the room size. Bathroom size is decent. Fresh Towels. Queen bed, TV, desk, small closet (again, we don't care about the size). I am very picky about cleanliness, and this place was absolutely clean. They even have mattress covers to avoid bedbugs, for which I'm thankful as we had an experience with bedbugs at a different place before, and trust me, you do NOT want to deal with that, so I would most rather sleep on the covered mattress and know I'm safe.
From our stay at Singapore we noticed that generally Singapore people are not too friendly, you are not likely to hear any laughter on subway etc., generally quite reserved and quiet (note for female travellers - do not wear low cut tops, or even medium if you have full bust - you will be stared at, this is not the norm there).
This is why I'd like to address any prior feedback about any staff unfriendliness - they are quite fine, you have to understand this is a different culture all together. The staff is very helpful and treat visitors with outmost respect, in a courteous manner. That is all I think is necessary.
I would definitely recommend staying at Hotel 81- Heritage.
