We stayed in Hotel 81 Dickson from 30th June to 2nd July 2011. Room numbers are 105 &106. Here are my reviews. We arrived little early in the hotel , but the hotel staff was kind enough to allot us the room in advance as the rooms were free that time. I booked the rooms in advance online and so...

Maybe it is normal in Asia, and especially for the price, but I don't like Hotelrooms without windows, and at this hotel the most of the rooms don't have one. The room was very small and noisy. We could hear anything from the floor and the rooms next to ours. The bathroom was also very small and the shower was...

We spent 3 nights at the hotel and were really disappointed. I´ve read many comments of people saying that the hotel is a great value for the price, but from my point of view this hotel is very overpriced. The room is small, the mattress is made of plastic or vinyl (so the sheets are always slipping which is very...

We only stayed at this hotel for 1 night due to our flight cancellation. It is right in the heart of little india. The rooms are small, basic but more than adequate and great value considering the cost of most Singapore hotels. The front desk staff were outstanding, giving us a late checkout until 3pm, kept checking with the airline...

This is a budget hotel - rare in Singapore. I compared it to getting a private room in a hostel (I'm not into the dorm thing) and found thismtombe only about $10 more. Lots of what's said in other reviews are true - rooms are small; bathroom is combo toilet/ shower; one outlet (with another quite hidden in the wardrobe)....

The hotel pictures make the place look warm an inviting but instead it is cold and dark. The mattress is plastic coated and they use a flat sheet which slips off as soon as you get in bed. So sleeping on a plastic mattress with no sheet is not fun. The shower tap sit out much further than the shower...

This is a budget hotel. The rooms and bathrooms are very small. Preferred for bachelors accomodation. The rooms are not very clean and service is just ok. The location is good and easily accessible. It is fine for short stays single person.

Staying in Little India

Neighbourhood Profile
Little India
With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander past traditional barbershops while local residents in brightly coloured saris patronize retailers from decades past. Peruse streets lined with colourful shops as the aroma of curry tempts you to indulge. Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts and take in the stalls selling bright flowers, fabrics, and spices. At the 24-hour, four-level Mustafa Shopping Centre, you can shop through the night and find everything from pharmacy and grocery items to Bollywood DVDs and diamond necklaces. Singapore’s Little India offers a colourful, lively taste of the subcontinent and is well worth the visit.
