“Very basic”
Reviewed 26 December 2012

I stayed at this place due to the cost and free wifi. Overall this is a very basic Hotel situated slightly far from the centre of Singapore. Although I wasn't completely dissatisfied with the Hotel, the general cost of Hotels in Singapore are very expensive. The main attraction was cost and free wifi.

For such a pricey place as Singapore is, the hotel has a good value for money. Recepcionist was so helpful to print my docs in the early morning for free. That was so great since i needed the docs urgently but inet cafees were closed and i was really short of time.

I stayed in the hotel one year ago.
the staff was helpfull and the room was small but clean with tv and internet.
it is located very close to the metro ( 5' walk) very close from little india. no restaurant in the hotel but lots of food satll at the begining and the end of the street.
the price was ok for Singapore
if you are not looking for luxury but a clean and safe place to stay, go there, they have several hotel 81 in singapore so you can choose one who is close from your location.

Poor Service from front desk personnel and look Grumpy most of em.
Small lifts and room. The lobby and room stinks with cigarette smell although we opt for non smoking room. Room is stuffy and dirty. Bed is hard and not comfortable. Not a good place for kids or family. Area noisy.
The only good positive note is that its cheap.

we stayed here for 7 nights during the Grand prix. The hotel originally mixed up our booking and we had to share a double bed for the 1st night however the hotel were very good and rectified this.
This hotel was a 20/25 minute journey in the Taxi from Changi airport,
The rooms are very compact and there is hardly any room for bags or moving around, but I have to say overall the room was clean and so was the bathroom. We even had tea and coffee facilities.Our beds were made up everyday and towels were changed. Just what you need if your using the hotel to sleep in and nothing else.
Hotel was in the red light district but it still felt very safe and it was about a 10 minute walk to the MRT station at Geylang from here it took no time to get to places.
Lots of food places in the area as there is no food facilities at the hotel, possibly a vending machine.
Overall not bad for a budget hotel if your sleeping there and nothing else, can be quite noisy at night with people laughing and joking up the corridors and doors banging.

Room Tip: ask for a room at far end of a corridor which i suspect would be less noisy and also they look large...

as above ,that is the only thing this hotel has going for it. , the room was tiny , dust even on the kettle , holes in the towels , stains on the bathroom floor. also in a poor area with a lot of people wandering around late at night, singapore the clean city , they need to have a look at the rubbish in the drain on aljunied road near the shops. at 60 $ a night this place is barely okay, but accom in singapore is expensive
