Located in Little India, hotel is very basic but very expensive. Hotel has no dining facilities and the restrauants in the area do not serve breakfast. The staff is pleasant and helpful. Hotel is undergoing renovation so ask for a room that has been renovated.

I was in Singapore recently for a work meeting but I took the opportunity to stay over one extra night on my own to catch Lion King (which was a lot of fun). I needed a place to stay for the night and given how expensive Singapore hotels are, I made a choice based on the following: - I did...

It is unfair to compare this hotel with the high end hotels in Singapore. It costs a half or a quarter of what other hotels cost, so you have to expect that it will not compare to those hotels. It provides what it promises-- an inexpensive, clean and comfortable place to spend the night. For the price I paid, I...

Decide to stay on this small hotel due to its reviews, location and prices. Located just opposite of Sim Lim Tower and about 10 minutes walk from Bugis station. The MRT going to Changi airport and if you don't have too many bags and alone, you can save without having to use taxi. Lots of convenient stores around, OG Shopping...

Having been traveling a lot, in my experience and as a general rule, when you get a cheap hotel, you'll get a bad place and service. But not at Hotel 81. The Hotel 81 is one of the big hotel chain companies in Singapore and despite of being a budget hotel, they made sure that the service is good. Our...

I enjoy my stay at Hotel 81 Dickson from 10 - 15 October 2011, Room - fair enough, not too small, maybe it will be hard to move around for two persons, but there is still a place for you to put your luggage and belongings. I go with my brother and his wife, my brother got superior room that...

Nestled between two similar streets full of parked cars. This used to be Dickson Hotel but already changed hands to HOTEL 81 chain. Next to a late night, Indian/ Chinese/Malay food place with roaches that scuttle underneath the tables.

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.
