Hotel 81 - Gold
Ranked #208 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 30 December 2011

I've stayed in the Geylang area numerous times before as it's pretty much the only area in Singapore with cheap hotels...It is in a red light district but I guarantee it's safer than wherever you're from...rooms are tiny, just big enough for 2 average persons...it won't be all that comfortable...staff were very friendly...helped us out a lot with bus routes and info around town...my main complaint was that you couldn't control the AC from your room, so it could get cold at night...overall, not much worse or better than the other 81 or Fragrance hotels in Geylang...adequate for a night or two...

I stayed 2 nights here a week ago. The room was quite clean but very small with no extra space for luggage. Also the bathroom/toilet was small and there wasn't socket for ie. electric razor.

The hotel is located on a street where prostitutes hang out. I was left alone even though I was alone, but if you're disturbed just by the fact that the prostitutes are there, this hotel (and area in general) is not for you.

Aljunied MRT station is about 10 mins. walk away and there's lots of restaurants nearby.

The conclusion is tha it's an OK hotel for short stay for solo traveller.

i go with my buddies at 11/5/2011 and stay there for 3 nite and they charge us SGD200. for us it was cheap. the room was clean also the toilet. got a lcd tv attach to the wall. but the place for us is quite scarry coz its located at Geylang (hooker place). the hooker already standing along the road and in front the hotel waiting for the customer. so, we afraid to go out at nite. thx god, as long as we stay there, we did not occur any trouble.

Room Tip: choose the other Hotel 81 near pasar Geylang. but not at lorong 20, Geylang.

This hotel must be one of the cheapest, only SGD60 per night. Hostel may be cheaper but we prefer private room with inside toilet.

Extremely helpful staff, they called for taxi too. Rooms are small but it’s okay for couples. Beds have pvc plastic mattress and are old but comfortable. Reminder: bring your own pillowcase you will need it. Bathroom is very small and can be a problem for overweighed people.

The room had everything we wanted for a good stay. Free coffee, ginger tea and a bottle of water daily. Flat screen TV with movie and sports channels. Air con worked very well and was one of these with degree control on the wall so it was no problem to regulate. Windows can’t be open and I think this is for safety reason. Our room was cleaned daily what more do you need!

Great location; Aljunied MRT Station (EW9) is 10 minutes away on foot and there is a 7 Eleven store on the main street about 100 meters from the hotel and many food places.

Not sure what to expect due to the area, but no problems.
Hotel is clean and the staff friendly and helpful, the room was small but it's what we expected, we left a suitcase at airport as only here for 2 nights, plenty of places to eat locally and buses close by.
