Upon arrival we were given a room transfer because our initial room was in poor condition. Second room was more spacious and had a window overlooking the street. It was worth the price as it covered the basic necessities for our accommodation. A plus is its ideal location right infront of a bus stop.

Overall is good. The location is very close enough, bus stop is in front of the hotel. The service is good, but the cleanliness need to be improved. The table of television, dvd and hair dryer is dusty.

Staff are blur. Room rate is not clear beside asking them. Not a very friendly smile since they know that you will be there for the "poking". Nothing more and nothing less. Be sure have to use the tissue from the toilet

It is in such a convenient location you could catch bus 124 to Newton MRT. The bus stop is just in front of the hotel. The room is small but comfortable. Overall it was valued for money to stay in the hotel.

Good value for money and polite service. The rooms are clean and the service exceeds the standard to be expected of a budget hotel. I am a regular visitor to Balestier, which is one of the more interesting areas of Singapore and always stay at the Hotel 81

Room costs $79 per night, where there's a $10 first time registration fee that was quite surprising as it was told to you but not shown at the counter. The reception accepts cards like MasterCards and the process was quick. After payment, the key is given for a standard room. The room was very small, but small enough to fit...

Always feel welcoming by the receptionist with their smiling face. Room cleanliness is good. Sometimes Coffee and Water Bottle forget to refill. It is very convenient for you to ride bus as it is just right in front of the hotel. Walking distance to the Novena Station is very far. Anyone loves Durian!? This is the right place. You can...

When I first came into this kind of value hotel 81 with heavy luggage and I gave my details to the two front desk personnel ZAHRYN and WINSTON (senior desk personnel).
