Nothing much to say about this hotel - good location, MRT, restaurants, Clarke Quay all in walking distance. However rooms are mega small, no fridge, no desk, no wardrobe/ hanger. At least got very good shower, internet is okay too. Would not want to stay again but for easy accommodation in an ever more expensive Singapore not too bad a choice.

The rooms are small but clean. There was no cupboard in the room. Apart from that had almost all basic facilities. Internet connection is provided free if booking is done online. Internet speed is decent. The main advantage of this hotel being in the central location. Hotel does not have a restaurant but there are a lot of food joints near by.

Room Tip: Always ask for a room with window in Singapore.

Hotel 81 Chinatown a part of teh Hotel 81 chain in Singapore is a reasonable budget hotel to stay in Singapore. The standard room is a tad small but the superior plus and family rooms are good. Good location.

Room Tip: select a superior plus or a family room

this hotel is right in the centre of chinatown, location is perfect just opposite the city's MRT station. Staff are nice polite and friendly. This is a hotel for tourist on a buget and rooms are small and compact. No swimming pool or restaurant but there are many delicious delicacy and shopping malls within walking distance to hotel.

Good location,staffs & local people are very friendly. Very convenience to get down the Food street. Frog porridge and chilli crabs are so delicious. ( special foods here)
The price was so high, rooms are so small ( just depend on your luck to get a comfy room)

Hotel81 provides cheap accommodation for budget travellers and is clean and reliable hotel. Located Strategically at chinatown MRT station, there are plenty to see, shop and eat. Hotel provides free Wifi as well as toiletries and in-room hair dryer. Room is clean and comfortable enough, although small. I have to give credit to front desk officer name yu ming, who is always attentive to all our needs, He give us good advice where to shop and dine, and attend to all our enquiries and even get us a room change, well done yu ming and we wil come back to this hotel if we visit singapore again!!!
