Hotel 81 - Geylang
Ranked #208 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 26 August 2016

It’s a budget hotel similar to many in the Hotel 81 Chain. Try to get one of the renovated rooms which come with better bathroom, fridge and room safe. The rooms are fairly small but clean and all of them have a small desk, TV air conditioning and a kettle to make a cup of tea or coffee. WiFi works well. Special thanks to Mdm Tan who cleaned our room so efficiently. Geylang is an “interesting and colourful ” area with plenty of reasonably priced places to eat and , convenience stores nearby. Aljunied MRT station is a ten minute walk away and many buses run along Geylang Road.

Be aware that Geylang is an official Singapore red light area and the hotel is in the heart of it. There are official establishments designated by large red numbers and visible street prostitution. Also some illegal gambling and selling of dubious cigarettes and performance enhancers. The area is safe and you are not likely to get hassled but it isn’t the “squeaky clean” Singapore you might expect.

Room Tip: Try to get one of the renovated rooms with fridge and room safe

Even though it is located in a seedy area at night the hotel is reasonable and safe. The daytime is fine and we never felt awkward or fearful. The staff was nice and Tan Kim Eng was so nice to clean our room daily and quickly when we were in a rush. Her service was great and we appreciated her responsiveness to our needs. Thanks.

It's really impressed with the friendly helping me in collecting my forgotten Ipad!

Due to a minute of neglect I was forgot my Ipad in a taxi and I even could not remember the taxi company name! Thank to the helpful assistance of the hotel staffs. The SMRT taxi have contact me and the kind Taxi driver come back to the hotel and return it after his shift.

A beautiful remembrance of the honesty of Singaporean people and the good services!

I do appreciate the kind assistance of Ms. JASLIN, a very nice and charming staff of Hotel 81 Geylang!

Before arrival I had my own I it ill expectations based on the reviews I had read. With that in mind I had mixed feelings about the hotel. Upon arrival my family was beautifully welcomed by a cheerful looking Jaglin and Keith who showed us to our room. We checked in on 19th July and out on 22 July. Honestly every hour spent in hotel 81 geylang was very pleasant. From their neat rooms to their well kept bathrooms and clean towels which was changed every morning to their pure white bedsheets and pillow cases which were always changed before we returned from town. Everything worked perfectly and the area it is located is just fun to hang around. It's a beautiful hotel with beautiful staff and I recommend it to all prospective visitors to Singapore.
