Stayed in this hotel twice and in different room types. Once with a window - another without. The rooms are clean but small. The room without the window had a bad smell and was so humid that after laying down on the bed your back is all wet. Also in the rooms you have airco but you can't regulate it by yourself. All airco temperature is set from reception and of course, they won't make changes by each person request. So for me - during the night, when the room is wet - the temperature was too cold. I was sleeping with the socks. Location is quite good - easy to reach all main objects by bus or have a walk in Little India. Around you can find a different type of food restaurants, near supermarket if you want to buy snacks and etc. Just the price not very cheap, around you can find cheaper places if will book in advance. As well you should keep in mind that it the same street, beside the hotel is several karaoke bars and inside maybe something more. A couple of times people were booking rooms in this hotel only for a couple of hours...2 stars I give only for the location, nothing else

my first time stayed at this hotel. i didnt expect too much before arrived there. the room is very small, but quite clean. the location is good, there's a food court beside the hotel, and also a small convenience store . the nearest bus station is at jalan besar, you can reach many places from there. overall the hotel is a good choice for budget traveller like me.

We spent 03 nights and this found to be a nice budget hotel. For the travelers this would be an ideal place as you can reach most of the attractions from there easily. Standard double room comes in with a limited but sufficient space. Wash room is also small in size but has all the basic amenities. They do provide 02 water bottles (per day) tea/coffee/sugar, soap & toiletries, tooth brushes & toothpaste (every day) etc FOC. Room has an electric kettle , cup & sources, a drawer , TV , hangers (no wall cupboards or wardrobes). Staff is very nice and you can book cabs/vans through them as well. Pls check with checkin counter staff and you can keep your luggage even after you have checked out (if required) for few hours depending on the availability. They do not have any restaurants in side and you will lot of them around the hotel. And you can find a 7/11 store & Cheers grocery shop closely. Need to be careful of making noises on the walkways inside (specially if you have kids who would love to run around) the hotel as it could disturb others in the rooms.

Though we stayed only for 2 days in the Hotel in June 2017, it was a very nice experience. The hotel rooms are clean, well maintained and is a very good budget standard hotel. There was enough hot water and beds were clean. But above all we found the hotel staff very cordial and helpful. I specially thank Mr. Jimmy for helping us out in our Singapore travel plan. He explained us how to travel in the city as we did not have travel package. Other staffs were also good. My best wishes to the hotel and its employees. Thank you all.

My son and partner stayed here on first stop of round the world travels. Had a balcony room which they were very happy with and fitted their budget. However the real gem here is the staff. They left expensive headphones in their room and the staff have been absolutely amazing ( special mention to Shawn and Jimmy) answering phone calls, emails and going above and beyond to assist packing and helping to get these returned home. Our thanks for all your help. I would absolutely recommend this hotel for their fabulous staff alone!

My family (couple + teens) and I spent 3 nights at the Hotel 81 Elegance and rate it as a good budget-standard hotel. The rooms are very small but the bedding is clean, neat, and the beds and pillows are comfortable. The air-conditioning is cool, and the wifi is OK. There was plenty of hot water, as well as tea and coffee making facilities. Bath towels and toothbrushes were supplied, but I thought the bathrooms would benefit from the addition of a guest hand towel. The housekeeping staff were excellent - they were fast, friendly, and very efficient. The hotel is close to several local-style cafes and restaurants, and right next door to a convenience store, so getting food and drinks is very easy. The hotel is within walking distance of: a mall featuring a cinema and various shops, an MRT station, and Little India. The hotel is supposed to be completely smoking-free, but there was a fairly strong smell of smoke in the hallways. We really appreciated being able to leave our bags secured at the hotel after we checked out so that we could enjoy our final day in Singapore without having to cart our luggage with us. We were grateful that we had chosen a room with a balcony because the room is so small that it was great to have an extra area so as not to feel boxed-in. There is considerable construction going on across the road and so our rooms were fairly noisy during the day, but the construction noises stopped in the late afternoons and so the evenings were quiet. (Obviously no fault of the hotel's!)

This is a good budget hotel with simple facilities and clean rooms. The service quality and interiors are ok for the price and good for location. This hotel is about 5/10 mins walk from farer park mrt and lavender mrt and is walking distance from little India Mustafa centre with lots of food and shopping options. There is stylish dining options as well as a mc Donald's also at 5 mins at the city square mall near farer park mrt .There is a cheers adjacent to hotel, as well as a couple of other convenient stores like 7/11 and others across the street. Plus lots of Ktv pubs/ bars on the road near by and food courts for cheap value for money Chinese and south East Asian food around. There is very beautiful Buddhist/ Chinese temple just adjacent to the hotel .Location is good as it's is central not very far from airport and not very far from the markets and tourist districts. Staff is polite and mr Kim is very helpfull. Wi-fi is good . I had taken room with balcony it was good room a bit small but ok . This is not a 5 star hotel so service and ambience is good as per the budget. There is a tv,wifi electric kettle and hair dryer in room with a small washroom with hot/ cold shower and toilet attached . Room service is done daily so that's good. Over all good ,safe and simple hotel with all the basic facilities and good value for money. I suggest they should upgrade the quality of tooth brush in the kit they provide and also provide more mineral water in the room.

Clean hotel, friendly reception staff. Small room, but that is expected in Singapore. Bed very comfortable, linen clean, plenty of hot water and at a good pressure. Toilet and shower next to each other without any screen does take a bit of getting used to. Hotel good for a one night stop over. Many choices of 'street' food available within 30 second walk. All clean smelling with quick service. Cheers late night convenience store next door. Will return if a balcony room is available on our next trip.

Our 5 day stay here was really great. Matched our budget, location and comfort. The staff were really helpful and friendly. Their communication was informative and clear. The rooms are a bit dated but maintenance is good and on-going. Space-wise is enough compared to some other nearby ones i have stayed before. Surrounded by food-courts and one right downstairs, including a Cheers shop which has everything necessary. WiFi and AC worked great, and our rooms did not have windows, so no noise from outside. Will surely stay again. Kudos to the staff..!!

Staff would do policing on you for things such as water bottle so rest you can imagine "Experience will NOT be pleasant" this you can be sure of, you might save money though NOT RECOMMENDED. Location wise it is not very central And MRT is 30 min walk (little India) Food around is NOT Indian Indian food is again 20 min walk Hotel will not give any breakfast Not even the plates spoons Most importantly I have encountered a rude person in the staff "Shawn Lim" I paid the highest and got a small room with balcony This was the smallest room on the floor which was offered at highest price So also check around other rooms as they might not help you even if bigger room are avilable
