“Good location for getting around the city”
Reviewed 9 December 2011

Within walking distance to the MRT station, bus stop and food court/eateries. Conveniently located for easy traveling to and fro the city and also Sentosa Island. Rooms are tiny and clean. Don't expect much from budget hotel even though this one in particular is more expensive compared to the other 81 hotels because of the good location. Excellent for short stays.

Room Tip: Each room has a different layout due to the old architecture.

It is a budget hotel so you can't really expect all that much for the price. In my mind it was on par with a private room in a hostel.

Staff: fantastic! They were always friendly and helpful whenever we needed them and let us borrow a multi-plug so we could plug a lot of things in.

Location: really close to both Outram Park and China Town subway stations. The neighborhood is safe and has a few little stores near by.

Rooms: Fairly small. A wet room bathroom and a small desk. Only one accessible power socket. The bed was made from leather which while practical was annoying to sleep on. Honestly? I wouldn't have had a quibble with the room as they give you black out curtains, big tv, good wifi Internet and although the rooms are small it was big enough for the two of us considering we only wanted to sleep there. The only thing that let the hotel down was the noise. Anyone walking past our room talking sounded like they were shouting. The worst was a small child one morning playing in the hallway.

Overall I did enjoy my stay here and if coming back to Singapore on the same budget I probably would stay here again for the location and price alone.

Tiny room as has been said on here many times.
I am amazed that nobody has commented on the fact that the majority of the people staying here are staying for a couple of hours. Plastic / rubber sheets are normally a bit of a give away. Nowhere to put clothes in room, no space !
Room was clean, A/C worked well as did shower. Shower is almost over the toilet.
Would be a shame if you couldn't find a better place to stay for 110 singaporean dollars.

Reviewed 20 August 2011

I was a bit reluctant to book Hotel 81 having read review of the other chains but went ahead anyway.

Overall an okay stay The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from the station Outram Park and maybe 20-25 mins walk to China town on foot.

Rooms were tiny but clean. TV remote control didn`t work and staff didn`t seem bothered about it. Maybe it`s a common issue with other rooms also.

The other negative is WIFI only in the lobby.

I believe the hotel is overpriced for the location and the size of the room but this is Singapore and nothing comes very cheap.

We checked in on 6/30-7/4/11
The room is really cramped even without a table or chair which concide with other travallers review here.The toilet room with shower facility which only fit for one person standing and no space left other than u can touch even wall by hands.That's mean even the shower room is very small too.Yet it doesn't mean bad at all.It's relatively cheaper price and good clean room service quite appreciated.two bottle of distilled water available daily.a convenience shop just outside the hotels door.Many tourists stayed in there as well.Tiong Bahru good center 5mins walk.Many food can choose from.there's coffee good.some shop have to queue up for a while. nearby the hotels still have many chinese cuisines.To get there just take Outram park and Exit-B which closest to get to the hotel~
