Recent guest reviews

every time i visit singapore , i always choose to spend my holiday at Hotel 81 Rochor, although i had considered many other hotels in singapore, but none had better location with cheap price like Hotel 81 Rochor, perhaps because I like the food at Bugis Junction . the hotel is always clean with nice perfume, they clean the room, make the bed everyday. maybe one little thing they need to improve is to provide better shampoo and shower gel .

Hotel 81 Rochor is ok for night or two. It's cheap, clean, safe and location is good. Near by in Little India and Bugis are lor of good eateries. Bugis and Rochor MRT are only short walk away. Check in and out was very fast. Staff was nice and helpfully.

Nice location. Very near with rochor mrt station, across sim lim square. This hotel is located in little india area. So if you are moslem, you will easy to find halal foods, such as "Al Bismi". The owner is very nice to costumers. When you order indian food, make sure you are familiar with the taste.

We arrived into Singapore delayed at 8am and were given a complimentary late check out. We were there in transit so our windowless room was perfect to catch some sleep. Bed was comfortable and although the shower/toilet area was compact, it was still comfortable. In a central location to Bugis Chinatown and also little India. Would recommend this hotel highly, the staff were extremely friendly and assisted Us with maps and information to sites and the airport.

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. Room: +cctv channels +fridge +3sockets +strong wifi +wifi was strong -Super tiny, 8m2, not 14m2 -fake window, you open up is wall -no movie or hbo channels -Ants on the table -Flies on the bed -Bed have some hair strains -no sound proof at all, next door bath, you can hear the water -air con super cold, despite 30 degree -check out at 11am, not 12noon -Door is use key, not automatic use card Bathroom: +Good water pressure +Toothpaste and toothbrush -Hot water not consistent -No floor towel -Toilet get wet -No place to put clothings -after bath, the bathroom was flooded Lobby: -Staff seems busy -waited 20min for checked in -only one lift Location: +cheers mart beside hotel +sheng siong supermarket 12min walk -no parking lot -cars can hardly stop there, only one lane place -walk to bugis , 15 mins Facilities -no swimming pool nor gym My personal review: Hotel Ground (Lobby, reception): 3.0 (no bellboy) Staff (Knowledge, helpful, friendly): 5.3 Room (Design layout, amenities, bed): 4.2 Bathroom (Water pressure, design): 5.4 Location (Surroundings, mall): 7.50 Facilities: 0.0 Price vs Quality: 5.0 Service: 5.0 Wifi: 8.0 Bonus: 5.0 Total: 48.40 / 100

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.
