Hotel is pretty good and its very decent. The wifi is so good and also the courtesy of staff is mind blowing as they take extraordinary measures to answer our queries. Hotel is just a Walking distance to nearby malls and restaurants . I would recommend this hotel as its budget friendly .

Great ambience front desk greets me. Given nice clean room windows nice view. Whole night stay was sleeping beauty. Customer service was superb by the branch manager-in-charge Ms zuliana together with winston, calvin, chen feng. will come back again soon.

Upon arrival we were given a room transfer because our initial room was in poor condition. Second room was more spacious and had a window overlooking the street. It was worth the price as it covered the basic necessities for our accommodation. A plus is its ideal location right infront of a bus stop.

Overall is good. The location is very close enough, bus stop is in front of the hotel. The service is good, but the cleanliness need to be improved. The table of television, dvd and hair dryer is dusty.

Staff are blur. Room rate is not clear beside asking them. Not a very friendly smile since they know that you will be there for the "poking". Nothing more and nothing less. Be sure have to use the tissue from the toilet

It is in such a convenient location you could catch bus 124 to Newton MRT. The bus stop is just in front of the hotel. The room is small but comfortable. Overall it was valued for money to stay in the hotel.

Good value for money and polite service. The rooms are clean and the service exceeds the standard to be expected of a budget hotel. I am a regular visitor to Balestier, which is one of the more interesting areas of Singapore and always stay at the Hotel 81

Room costs $79 per night, where there's a $10 first time registration fee that was quite surprising as it was told to you but not shown at the counter. The reception accepts cards like MasterCards and the process was quick. After payment, the key is given for a standard room. The room was very small, but small enough to fit 2 adults. It was well furnished, but has no windows. Toilet was great, but the heater system was slightly hard to control. Other than that, everything's great. There's free all-in-one soap as shampoo and body wash, as well as sanitary amenities and toilet paper.

Always feel welcoming by the receptionist with their smiling face. Room cleanliness is good. Sometimes Coffee and Water Bottle forget to refill. It is very convenient for you to ride bus as it is just right in front of the hotel. Walking distance to the Novena Station is very far. Anyone loves Durian!? This is the right place. You can have it just right opposite the hotel named "Durian Combat".

When I first came into this kind of value hotel 81 with heavy luggage and I gave my details to the two front desk personnel ZAHRYN and WINSTON (senior desk personnel). ZAHRYN told me I must change the booking person name into my name in order to stay in from hotel.com. I was panic and they help me to correct it and I felt so relieved. I thanked both of them for their extremely helpful and so kind and friendly also given two bottles of complementary water for free from WINSTON. He gave me a good room next day without asking and told me all been occupied. ZAHRYN also helped me with my luggage to my room. Both of them are great to chat with you name it! Next day I face two new front desk personnel CALVIN and DANIEL (Manager). First shy afraid to ask them but to my surprise they are also extremely helpful and so kind and friendly also given me lots of complementary bottles for free although it is chargeable. They help me with bus route number to the city. They find out from their computer and their smartphone too! Again both of them so great to chat with befriended both also to my last day CALVIN help me with my luggage and flag taxi for me! Hotel room is excellent for one person to stay although is queen size bed for two person. This Hotel 81 doesn’t have two single size beds. This Hotel 81 room I can say is great with bathroom/toilet ventilation system to prevent from mouldy room but excellent no mouldy smell at all because got ventilation in the bathroom/toilet. Room is clean but little dusty some hard to reach area which is normal. Can request extra toilet row, facial tissue, toothbrush set, bath towels, coffee you name it and even iron set and hanger too!!! Also can leave my washed clothing to dry under air conditional as they allowed by removing key tag to place into the card switch! THANKS AGAIN FOR EVERYTHING!!!
