Hotel 81 Chinatown

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

spent a couple of nights here recently great location in Chinatown and close to the MRT. Small clean and basic rooms at good rate for Singapore. Doing an upgrade at present so a bit noisy if there in the day time but if like us out and about checking out the charms of Singapore not an issue. So close to the night food market at Chinatown.

was there for 3 nights in April for business. Old hotel with old rooms. windows are very small. Inside rooms are very small as well. this hotel is near to chinatown area. Wifi is poor. there is a MRT station right at the exit door of hotel and you can go Marina bay area by the change of one MRT train. friendly staff. Towels are not new and white and toilet is very old.

Good for short stopover because room quite small. Room was clean. Air conditioning just right and adjustable. Water pressure just right with good flow. Bedsheets and towels very clean. I just dont quite like being stop at the reception to check my authenticity as a room guest. Furthermore I was in my corporate attire and at my age no way I can have that 'slutty' look.

This is a budget hotel right in the heart of Chinatown. There is no need to worry of eateries as there are many eateries which open until wee hours in the morning. There are also many public transport like bus and mrt station is just right next door across the street.

Like most hotels in this price category in Chinatown. Small inside rooms - easy to sit on toilet and clean teeth at same time! great location to MRT and shops. Friendly staff. Close by to many restaurants/quick food venues.

I had be stay in this hotel offen .The hotel is really good no need to worry about food opp this hotel is a mrt ,surround u can get food easy. Room very small but ok with me with just 2 small luggage and the room was very clean. Whenever I need to travel or any place the front deck is willing to help me with the direction. I will back again .

Very small room but clean -budget hotel in Chinatown in Singapore. Air conditioning worked well-walking distance to MRT and all we needed Staff were friendly.lots of great hawker food stalls and restaurants nearby

I had a whistle stop visit to Singapore for an interview and arrived after an overnight flight in need of a nap and shower. Had been told that this was convenient and that I could check in for a few hours at any time - all true. Staff were friendly and super helpful but the room was very small and basic, smelled strongly of cigarettes, had a plastic covered mattress and no window. I guess I got what I paid for but I won't be rushing back. Thank you though to a great staff who couldn't have been nicer and more willing to make everything easy.

Price high compared with facilities... limited facilities....Very handy location - just across the road from the metro. Staff were friendly and helpful. Ideal only for a night or two stay, as rooms are quite small.

I visited with my husband and my daughter (4 y.o). Do not pay more for kids (under 6 y.o). The place is quite comfortable because it is close to the Chinatown shopping center and MRT station. Room is small but clean. officers are nice and friendly. with the price we pay we get a hotel with a nice location.
