While this hotel is located right smack in the red light district, my wife and I were pleasantly surprised with our stay in this hotel. The room is clean and the bed is comfortable. There is a provision for daily drinking water and basic toiletries (2-1 shampoo and toothpaste and toothbrush). The channels on cable tv are very limited, but you don't really need them as most of the time, you are out touring Singapore. It is also true that very cheap, but delicious food options are available in the area. A bus station is close by and MRT stations are walkable too. You may either hail a cab right outside the hotel or you may request the front desk to hail one for you. If you want to save up on your budget for more important things in Singapore, this might be an acceptable option. If you have more to spare though, there are surely other options available.

I visited this hotel at end of June. The reception staff were helpful, the location were good since it's quite near to bus station to go everywhere in singapore. There's also a halal restaurant at the corner of the street. But the room not soundproof, I heard the neighboor yelling and screaming around 10pm.

I was warmly received by Mr Fazi and Ms Sarinah upon arrival @Hotel 81, Prime Star, Geylang 18. Great patience was exercised by Mr. Fazi to ensure that I get my room, as I intended to stay on a long term. Throughout my 3 months stay, Ms Sarinah and her team, were attentive to my needs and request, and were always polite and cheerful. Condition of my room is new and comfortable and soundproofing of the room is pretty good. Mattress is firm and new. Housekeeping girl, Ting Ting is very responsible and cheerful. Ample supply of drinking water and beverages upon request. The location of this hotel is very assessable to public transports be it MRT, buses or taxis, all within walking distance. It's also a eating paradise, surrounded by plenty of local restaurants and coffee shop, for all races. I hope my sharing can help you to make a better choice. You won't regret it. Trust me!

My experience at Hotel 81 Star, despite being situated in the notorious red light district, was one that was quite pleasant. Knowing that the hotel caters to hourly as well as long stay guests, my expectations were not very high, but I was proven wrong. The staff was warm and courteous. Check in was smooth without any hick ups. The room assigned was sufficiently spacious and as per my request; East facing to avoid the afternoon sun.. I was immediately surprised by the wood panels in the room. It gave a warm feeling. Most importantly, the sheets, towels, bed and toilet were clean! Due to its excellent location, access to public transportation is convinent and easy. Buses ply along Geylang Road, Gullimard Road and Sims Avenue. The frequency of buses along these 3 major roads allow quick access to 3 MRT stations. With this in mind, one can get to any part of this Island easily. This is especially useful for the business and budget concious traveller. As this is not as full service hotel, food and mini marts, within walking distance, are crucial. In this respect, the entire stretch of Geylang is very well served. The eateries and watering holes along the 3 main roads and the hawker centers nearby are really a foodiei's paradise, with foods representing the 4 ethnic groups and more. What really made my stay pleasant was really the staff, They were warm and courteous,. With 207 rooms, round the clock check in and check out, the front office staff, always greeted me or welcomed me on my return and took time to attend to my needs. The following persons made this possible; Hakim, Faiz, Jade, Shamin, Thomas, Patrick, and Sarinah. I am also grateful to the housekeepers who work tirelessly in changing sheets, mopping up spills, emptying trash, unlocking doors when key cards are left inside the rooms and keeping the rooms clean. These people are an asset to your organization. As your guest, I was happy to be served, but I would like to remain anonymous and not use any part of this feedback for marketing or commercial purposes.

Nice hotel. Bed very comfortable. The place is so clean you will feel ashamed of your own. Everything works and it has a comfortable feel to it. The staff are great. You feel right at home with Sarinah and Faiz. The rooms are small and there is not a lot of space. Consequently the tariff is low especially by Singapore standards. There is a windrow in each room - not guaranteed in all Singapore budget hotels. The location is hard to beat and there are dozens of restaurants within an easy walk starting at the end of the street. An excellent choice if you have a night or two in Singapore.
