Hotel 81 Rochor2.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Booked a triple room. The location is 3-4min walk away from Rochor MRT. You can see the hotel board from the MRT exit. Room was larger than mentioned. And bit spacious comparing to other similar hotels. Bedroom and bathroom was veru clean. Check in and check out was smooth. SIM LIM food court is about 7min walk away.
In a pinch, go for it. It's not terrible, but not first rate and doesn't pretend to be. Rooms are clean and straight forward. Walls are thin and not sound proof so you may hear some "exciting" sounds from the other clientele if you're lucky!
Went in at 10.30pm. Waited for 20minutes to get checked in. I have to wait the reception to see cctv as there is a indian couple have some issue with their room. In the end, I was told to sit and wait for 20minutes. The lobby was very crowded with 10+ people. In the end, I was given the smallest room on that level with no window. It was only about 8m2, not even 14m2.

Triple Room (Room 515) May 24-28, 2017 The location was its strongest advantage. It was near the Rochor MRT. A mere 2-3 mins walk. There are also 3 bus stops that were near, about 2-3 mins walk also. A convenience store is within the same building and other indian restaurants are nearby. A catholic church was also nearby (Our Lady of Lourdes) 5-7 mins walk. Mcdonald's (24hrs) and KFC (9-11pm) is a 10-12 mins walk. The hotel in general was good. Sometimes the receptionist assigned was snob and not accommodating. Check-in was a breeze but you need to pay the whole amount already during check-in. Check-out was also a breeze, just handed the key back to the receptionist. When it comes to the room, it was spacious and has a centralized aircon but it has temperature control. There were no cable channels, only watched CNN and Channel News Asia the whole stay. Beds are comfortable at least. The CR has bathtub and hot/cold shower. It can be improved by providing a anti-slip mat in the CR due to the slippery floor when someone's bathe. One more thing, I've noticed they accept short-term stay like a motel. If this doesn't bother you, you can stay in this hotel. Overall, it will pass as a decent hotel for the price paid.
Hotel is third class, never go with family. They rent rooms on hourly basis to couples. Staff is very rude. All in all, hotel is not at all good. There are lot of other hotels nearby. Cleanliness is also a big problem.
The good thing about this hotel is the location because it surrounded by any tranportation like mrts or buses. and it was near bugis area and malls. but the hotel should be focus on the cleanliness regarding the toilets but the rest was fine.
We stayed for 4 days. First day we got a double room with an extra bed (we found out later) instead of the triple room we booked and AC was terrible. It is too cold and we were unable to control it from the control panel and then after complaining we got a good room in upstairs with a balcony. its really good and staff also was friendly though. Room is comfortable enough for the price but make sure they give a good room if you ordered a triple room.
I stay for 3 days only in these hotels, this hotel is quite clean for the budget hotel of it class, but I like the staff of this hotel, they are very friendly and helpfull aspecially when I lost my airplane ticket one of the staff miss Jovine help me with my ticket problem and I dont have to buy another ticket. Thanks to hotel81 staff especially miss Jovine who helps me.
positives: clean room, you have everything you need (hair dryer, hot water and so on), very close to the subway, hocker center, mall and a shop, relatively cheap, you can check out and leave your bags in the lobby, helpful staff. negatives: you HAVE to pay when you check in. We arrived very late, we were exhausted, but they didn't let us in until we payed and they didn't gave us document. We were in different room than the one we booked. Non stop noise from the bathroom air ventilation that you can not stop. VERY loud indian neighbours with kids every morning. Men with different women coming and going all night long?! Our mattres was wrapped in leather?!! We stayed for one week and every day day keep forgeting to give us 2 bottels of water so we had to remind them (wich was very annoying...) *We stayed in a room with windows /Superior Double Room/ In general, I can't recomend this hotel, unless you don't have where to stay.
I only stay for 1 night and I don't wanna stay longer at this hotel. Everything is OK, the staffs were kind & helpfull, the location is great not more than 5 minutes walking to Rochor MRT station and even close to Bugis area, until I found cocroach in my room and there were many ants. This hotel really should pay attention in the cleanlines!
