Reviewed January 19, 2012

Me and my BF stayed in the hotel during New Year period.

Room was quite small, but for the price we had paid size is okay.
Bedsheets were clean, but not the towels.
Tea, coffee and small teapot are available.

The most disappointing was the smelly bathroom. Very smelly! I don't know may be it was just our room.
All our stuff became smelly, even when we returned home our stuff was still stinky.

+ Good price and not that far from the city center (not more than 10 SG dollars by taxi and ~22 SGD to the airport), MRT station and the bus stop are also in 5-7 min walk.

- Quite dirty, poorly furnished, old, used-to-be-white towels and one-off pillowcase. and which i disliked most of all - insects! cockroaches in the room((

Hotel 81 Star, 13 Lorong, 18 Geylang, not bad for a budget hotel in between flights. As expected my room is small but adequate. Room is clean, bed sheets and towels are clean, there is hot shower and room is quiet, or was I just in deep slumber? The room has TV and hot pot and complementary coffee and tea. Front desk staffs are efficient and courteous. The hotel is close to a lot of restaurants serving chinese to indian foods, no frills but good value for money. I reckon, this hotel is located right in the midst of the red light district but suprisingly it is not sleazy.

Overall is OK. Just I don't like their bed and pillows. The pillows are extremely soft.

Stayed 3 nights, room smelt terrible and previous occupants hair still in shower recess. It is near an MRT station but that is the only thing it has going for it. It is oppisite a substantial number of brothels and the hotel is often used for their services.

Small and tidy room. 10 to 15 minutes walk to aljunied station.
Great location as you can find lot of food stall around.
Not suitable for family as it located in red light district.
Is good for those who have limited budget.

Its small, but in a very good location.
Room was ok, tv kind a small, but still no time to enjoy , too much time on the outdoor already.

Since i got on the 8th floor, so the noise from the generator on the roof was kinda noisy.
