Hotel 81 Classic
Classic in the title seems to be the excuse to provide a very shabby and minimalist facility. Has not been updated for at least 20 years By necessity we had to stop close to Changi airport. Do not think this is value for $$. Smelling musty and mouldy the room

Dear NathalieAndAndrew, Greetings from Hotel 81 Classic. Thank you for taking the time to write your review of our property. It is only through feedback such as yours that we're able to improve upon the service that we provide to our valued guests. We were very disappointed to read of your experience during your stay with us. We certainly empathise regarding the points you mentioned in your review, especially the noise you experienced from your room and the poor service you received as a result. The additional tax and service fees due can be found in your booking voucher hence the need for the hotel to collect. We sincerely apologize for this experience and hope to serve you better after the refurbishment works in 2018. With regards, Customer Care Manager

This is reasonable location for short stay. Room was small, but the bed was comfortable. However, we got a room with temperature of the air-con that cannot be controlled. We wonder whether all the rooms were the same. We were freezing inside the room at night. However, we were ju

Yes, I booked 1 family room with 2 queen beds in your hotel just a while ago.I selected and booked the room as it can accomodate 4 people with apparently no extra charge as advertised in Expedia's website. I relied on that hence the booking. However, when I looked at the confirmation with itinerary no. 17651482214 and confirmation no. EXP-456166298 I found out to my big surprise that it says it's only good for 2 persons. Now I am confused. Please enlighten me as soon as possible.Thank you.
Hi, we note your reservation for a family room, was made through expedia. Ps be assured that our Family room (with 2 queen mattress) is good for 4 adults warmest regards team, Hotel 81 Classic

"Ask for a room that you can control the aircon temperature by yourself ."
"Rooms on the south side are quieter.."
"Family or deluxe room. Ask for window room!"
"Ask for room with window. But I don't know if they have any."
"If you want rooms with window, you have to ask specifically. Though the windows are sealed from outside to avoid opening, you can at least hear the voices of vehicles."
