This hotel has fake pictures in booking.com. The rooms are very old, dirty and it is known by locals to be used as an hourly hotel, so in general gross. They don’t clean everyday. Do not book this hotel ...
I was staying for 2 nights, Hard bed, checked in with no info about WiFi password. Front desk staff was nice to offer luggage. It was an average for hotel itself but location is great with all restaurants and cafes around and also walkable to Mustafa center and city square mall.
Pros: Hotel facilities are pretty basic, but ok. The staff was busy, but friendly and helpful. They even helped me to find a replacement charging cable for my phone, which I appreciated very much. Very nice bathroom with much water and heater working to perfection. There is a simple cafe next door and a Cheers store next door as well... It's a budget hotel and quite fine for a cheap night of sleep. Period. You get what you pay for. Cons: Location, as not only is located in a busy area with loads of traffic, but it has no parking available at all around and getting out of a taxi, has to be done in the middle of the street (in my particular case this time, under the rain). No one there to help you with luggage, not even to open the door to you. They have no room service at all. If you want a drink, there is a Cheers store -conveniently- found next door, but forget about asking for help to get anything or anyone coming to your door. The building seems tired and to give an example, the ac controls in the wall -near the door- have no buttons anymore and I had to wonder and experiment to find out which one was for what function...
First thing I noticed was my room was smelling so bad :( and the house keeping didn't help as none of them could understand English. The Manager was able to spray something but the smell wast completely gone. Rooms are way smaller than the images published. Considering the room rates this idnt the best option to stay in Singapore. Average quality hotel.
Visiting this hotel for the year end vacation in Singapore. You cannot expect much from a budget hotel but this hotel offers you a lot of street food court, just next to the hotel. The room is small but it's pretty clean. They changed the towel everyday while we stayed there.
Wow, although it was a budget hotel, the room was super small. I had try a similar hotel 81 in singapore earlier and the rooms was much bigger. Sad to say this time, I was really surprise by the small size. Overall, it is ok. It comes with Free Wifi.
We had couple of days in Singapore. actually we booked for standard room we requested that we’re honeymooners so they told us if possible they’ll upgrade room and when we get there we got superior room. we love the room we got in fact just small room but everything in that space was good.
Stayed Hotel 81 - Elegance during my visit to Singapore in October for 3 days. The check-in was fast as you just need to pay and get your room keys. The room I got was without windows and honestly, it is pitch black when the lights are off. Overall the room was clean including the bathroom however the bed was hard as rock. Sheets were clean and no stains or sort on it. However the room does give me a sense of what it is famed for. For the price you're paying, it isn't all that bad after all. Location wise, surrounding it are many cafes and coffee places which is great for person like me. But do go early to those places especially during the weekend as the crowd will start pouring in after 10am. The hotel is around 10 minutes walk to Lavendar MRT which is good. There are quite a number if eateries round that area and right below the hotel is a hawker centre which operates 24 hours if I'm not mistaken. Food is good and not pricey. Would recommend this place if you're on a budget but if you want something fancy, perhaps the other hotels around that area or nearer to the city would be more ideal for you.
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.
