Hotel 81 Princess

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staffs weren't friendly. The room is very small but it is very clean. Its also quite far from the mrt but very accessible. There are also lots of good restaurants around the hotel. This hotel is far from the city and quite near to the airport. It's also near to Old Airport Food Centre.

Moved from NuVe Hotel @Bugis to this hotel for its advantageous location near National Stadium, where my wife and I planned to see Coldplay concert. Hotel with name 81 are many in Spore. Pls spend time searching for various reviews of different users. Princess 81 is just one among few. The first room they offered me was frowzy, stuffy of cigarettes smell. Asked the hotel staff to get into the room to smell it, but he refused and said he did not smell anything while he was standing outside the room. Of course ! It was ridiculous. Eventually, after little argument, they put me on the upper floor and found a better room. Spent 2 nights there and felt pretty discomfort. The room was warm due to poorly functioning AC and staff inside the room worn out. The hot water in the bathroom was not working well. One time, we found a customer made a rough talk with the receiption which just was an annoying one. Next visit, we will decide not to pick 81's hotel anymore anywhere else. Hope the management looking best way to improve the overall hotel condition.

Good location close to restaurants, local shops, bars etc and walking distance to Railway station about 12 minutes walk. Staff are very helpful and speak fluent English. Room is comfortable but the bathroom needs an upgrade.

This is a small hotel located at the red-light district of Geylang. It's located in very close proximity to another Hotel 81 so if you take a cab, be prepared to have the driver confused as where to drop you off. The front desk staff at the hotel is friendly enough. The lift is very small, a tight fit for 4 people. Luckily, there doesn't seem tobe a lot of people staying there when we were there so we mostly had no issues with waiting for the elevator. The room is small, as expected from a hotel of this kind. It's clean though and the a/c is always cold. The bathroom is tiny. The one thing that we couldn't forget about our stay was how every time we looked out the window (our room overlooks a football field), there was a "street worker" hanging by the corner. A different woman was there at night, in the wee hours of the morning and even near lunch time once. It was weird. Over-all, this is still a nice, quiet hotel to stay in for the budget-conscious.

The hotel price is affordable yet the quality was good. Though it's located in red-district-area, the situation around is still condusive and comfortable. This hotel become my favorite one in Singapore because it's near to the bus stop which can take you to many attraction place such as kampong glam, merlion and stadium.

This hotel located in geylang 12, back of redlight area of Singapore. Quite area, good place to rest. Rooms are old and basic, small toilet and tv. Walking distance to mrt and have bus stop around it. Easy to check in.

Good location in geylang area. Personally, it's not my type. Because it is old and seems not well maintained. I'm not sure they wash the blanket daily. Because its dusty. When I want to use the kettle, there still water inside. Might be from the previous guest. However the service was good. Easy check in/out.

The room is ok but the floor is quite dusty. The TV is extremely small but it was ok for us. The bathroom is extremely small which i believe it is due to the bathtub inside. But there are quite a number of halal restaurants available around and the islamic centre also located beside the hotel. So for Muslims, Geylang area will be the easiest place to stay when it comes to the food.

Hotel location is good. You can get to town by bus along the main road. Room size is better that other budget hotels nearby. Coffee shops are available nearby and is easily accessible by walking. Can come and stay again.

Clean hotel, easy to find with friendly and helpful hotel staff. The hotel room is small a bit difference with the pict we saw in the internet. Small wall-mounted TV is the only entertainment in the room. The room-key lock (room 413) sometimes not working and need hotel staff to open it. No breakfast served for visitors but lucky that many street food seller nearby already open in the morning. I was not aware, until my wife told me after she checked in the internet that we stayed in the "red-light-area" of Singapore. I was walking around in the evening nearby the hotel and realized that my wife was correct. But the good things is that some brothels around did not show their business vividly and it seems it is only operating during the night time. During the daylight nobody will noticed.
