The room was what we expected for the price and the staff was friendly. The location is not the best if you're not used to the bus system in Singapore. We just stuck to Uber and Grab to go places instead of taking the bus but it can get expensive. Wi-Fi speeds are good if you can get a room...

I stayed here many times without problem. It is not the place if you are looking for amenities, but the price is great by Singapore standards and the staff is helpful. I only wish it were a little closer to the train station.

Dear tbon5779, we do appreciate your constant support of us here at Hotel 81 Sakura! There is a bus No.33 which brings you to Dakota MRT station in 10 mins just outside our hotel! Thank you for your kind review!

Booked the hotel through Hotels.com. Got an odd-shaped corner room which was much larger than the others I've stayed before. This is a no-frills hotel which is good to hang out for the great eateries nearby, especially if you enjoy Vietnamese and Peranakan cuisines.

The rooms are big comparing to other hotels. They extended our check-out time when we requested it. There are lots of restaurants, convenience store and grocery to buy needed things. The bus stop is a 5 minute walk to that brings all the way to all the popular destination like Bugis, Chinatown, Orchard.

Literally you get what you paid, but with this price we could have better experience. I don't mind the accommodation here, but this hotel do NOT have hot water, very weak wifi if you don't want to say NOT AT ALL, don't even have the fridge, and the toilet stinks

Room space, cleanliness and things provided were good enough. If hotel provides a little fridge, it'd be even better. WiFi speed needs improvement. Location is more than 15 minutes walk from MRT, and it's not near with any bus stop.

I don´t think price/quality was good. You could hear everything in your room from outside the room. The bed was uncomfortable, I had bruises because of it. The room wasn´t that clean. It was pretty far from the city and the hotel was located in a red light district. But despite all of that, the personnel was great. They helped...

Near bus station. Clean room. Accomodating hotel staffs. Infront of 7/11 convenience store. Many hawkers food stall outside the hotel. Near Joo Chiat mall where you can buy your needs. (-) Points: They clean up our room without our advise. Limited channels on television. But we still enjoyed our stay.

Neighbourhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighbourhood is packed with colourful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
