“You get what you pay for”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2013

For those looking for a clean, secure and cheap place to sleep in Singapore, this hotel is ideal. But if you want your hotel to add to your overall holiday experience, you should go somewhere else.

The rooms and bathrooms are very small, though scrupulously clean. There is a TV, a kettle and optional Internet access, and no other facilities whatsoever. Security is extremely good.

The location is unfashionable, but close to public transport.

I would recommend it to anyone who is not fussy about frills and luxuries, and plans to use the hotel as a place to sleep and no more.

It's just ok for stint. The rooms and bathrooms are very compact. MRT is located at a walk able distance of 5 minutes. I could not find any good places to eat out over there.

Complimentary cabled internet is provided (but not wifi).

The rooms here are tiny but functional. The beds have plastic coated mattresses which make you very hot and the A/C cannot be turned off which makes you very cold, so sleeping here is not an option! The management said "oh sorry about that" and looked away.

This small establishment is my favourite for one or two night stopovers in Singapore. The atmosphere is slightly institutional, but clean and pleasant. Bathrooms are tiny - a lavatory in a shower cubicle - but like everything in this hotel, totally practical. Outram Park MRT station, where you get off the airport train, is about 10 minutes walk away along a wide, attractive and flat road. Pulling your luggage is easy. Finding the hotel for the first time is slightly difficult because it's in a cul-de-sac down a few steps from the main road. Study the area on a detailed internet map prior to your arrival. There's a good outdoor restaurant at the other end of the street, and a couple of blocks further a really fantastic, cheap food hall, with multiple stalls.

Compact room, (not as small as Tune LCCT KL airport) Osaka's rooms have a better layout there is room for luggage, tea/coffee making facilities, LED TV on wall, and excellent free WIFI.
The plastic cover on mattress can contribute to a restless nights sleep.

Wet room style bathroom is slightly inconvenient, take some "crock's" every time I walked on the wet floor in street shoes I left a trail footprints.

Room (401) did have a window looking onto a wall, it's also next to the lift I shaft, had no problem with this, however some other guests with Children were a source of unwelcome noise with constant door slamming.

From Outram MRT Hotel is 5 minutes walk, there is a overpass to cross busy Outram Road, overpass is accessed from the off road side of MRT Station, with Singapore General Hospital on your left, walk towards, then under the flyover, and descend steps down to Eng Hoon Street.

Lots small restaurants in immediate vicinity and China Town one MRT Station away.

Hotel 81 Osaka is a no frill just enough Hotel. From the reception area to the room. Just enough lighting , decor from the lobby to the room. even the reception staffs will not speak too much. You ask a question and the they give the answer. Hotel is situated in a nice area , old British 3 story building restored into offices and residential area. Good place to just walk and explore. Nearby area has a few great resturant and Gift shops.
