I had a supposed 'superior' room - right on a main ( and very noisy road ), with no room to swing a cat around the fairly hard ( and plastic covered ) bed. Aircon only able to be switched off via the front desk. No bedside light-switch. Wet room...which ( after a shower ) had everything soaked ! Horrible smell - stale and oppressive ! That said, the staff were very pleasant...and with the aid of ear plugs I slept very well !

Located in the heart of Chinatown, it is a good location as many stores and restaurants are within walking distance. The staff is very friendly and helpful with all of our questions and inquiries especially Mausah!

Hotel 81 China Town is located at a very convenient location, i.e., within walking distance from China Town MRT Station and various bus stops, from which you can go to almost all sites of interest for tourists conveniently. There are plently of shopping malls, money changers, and good restaurants within 150 meters. Rooms are moderate in size but well organized with cable TV, hot water showers, coffee set, and toiletry supplies. Unlike many other hotels of the same category in Singapore, Hotel 81 changes towels and cleans rooms daily. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Look for Mr. Teo Yu Ming and his colleagues at the reception desk, you will get all good advice and help you need if you are new to Singapore. I just wish that Hotel 81 offered breakfast and had a small gym facilities. I will certainly come back and stay in Hotel 81 China Town again.

Room Tip: Before submiting your booking, do not forget to ask Yu Ming or his colleagues to book you in a room...

Was here with my wife and parents for a 2-night's stay. Here are my points why I rated this hotel poorly.

- Expensive - hotel price is abit steep considering the poor factors that follow:
- Terrible pillows - pillows are very soft and wouldn't support your head/neck properly for a good night's sleep - my wife suffers alot as she's very sensitive to neck support during sleep
- Noisy traffic - situated at the junctions of two of the busiest roads in Chinatown, the noise of traffic were not properly insulated and will cause you trouble sleeping
- Lousy Internet - The provided wifi internet connection is choppy and unreliable, and the fact that they charges S$10 per 24-hour usage. (Tip- go get a local data sim card as a better deal - Singapore has an excellent cellular data coverage)
- Room is very tiny for its price

Conclusion:
Stay away from this hotel unless you don't mind all these factors.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are larger. For Internet - go get a local data sim card as a better deal - Singapore h...
