“Indians on budget...look no further”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

If you are looking for an Indian breakfast and filter coffee to start your day, plenty of South Indian options near the hotel. 10 minute walk to the mrt. Felt safe walking to the hotel from mrt at 11:30pm. It's a neat and clean property. If you are looking for a place to sleep in after roaming across Singapore throughout the day, then Hotel 81 Dickson is perfect. We took a room with a window. The staff is friendly

Rooms were small (expected) however value for money Cannot accommodate an exta bed. Strictly for 2 adults and a kid below 6 years.

Worth for the money we paid. Not near to MRT. We have to walk 700 merRooms are small.
But clean and comfortable. Staff not that much corporate.wi fi good speed initially. No person to carry bag ages. You yourself have to take bag ages to the room

We booked dickson 81 from Changi airport. The hotel is nice and clean, has all the basics. We knew we were going to be out and about and only needed a place to sleep so we didn't need a big fancy room. Most rooms in singapore are small but its still big enough to fit all your luggage and have space to move around.

This is quite a basic hotel. The room was small and the bed wasn't great with ill fitting sheets. That said, it's difficult to criticise the place given how reasonable the price is in comparison to the other mega expensive hotels in the city. It's located quite far from the hustle and bustle of the city but it's right in the middle of Little India. There are a nice selection of places to eat and drink very close. If you're interested in visiting the Night Zoo and River Safari, the bus picks up very close to the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel during a weekend visit recently. The rooms are so tiny you have to crawl over the bed and luggage. The bathroom has translucent walls ! God knows why. For the price paid, a poor deal

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere unless you are a midget

Room and bath room are small but should be comfortable for a couple. will work for those who roam the city all the day and come back night to sleep and leave soon in the morning. One person on the reception is very helpful for us in claryfying and reaching the attractions of singapore. For most of you who dont know , there is NO free Wi-fi. Its 10 dollars per day
