First of all, for the price that I've paid, I am very satisfy with the room. The room is clean and comfy for a budget hotel standard. The hotel staffs are quite friendly and helpful (especially Mr Kelvin if I'm not mistaken his name). I am also very grateful with the free wifi service. Cons: a little difficult to locate...

the rooms are small, but very clean (w/ TV, fridge & good A/C) we spent just 1 day here.. just the day before we left SG... of course it's not a 5 star hotel, but i think it's okay for the room rates they offer... it's very close to shopping center (bugis, sim lim, mustafa center and train station)

Stayed here in a family room for 3 nights in July 2011. Booking in procedure was adequate but staff could've looked more interested and been friendlier. The room was quite large with 2 queen beds, lcd tv but no safety deposit box. The bathroom was okay but the floor and toilet always got wet after showering. Sim lim sq was...

Stayed with family in the first week of july. Small clean rooms.Bathroom was definitely very small, had to buy newspaper and cellophane tape to stick on the nearly seethrough glass which was supposed to be the wall between the bathroom and bedroom - That is the height of space saving.Bed covered with plastic sheets was irritating as the bedsheets kept...

We stayed in Hotel 81 Dickson from 30th June to 2nd July 2011. Room numbers are 105 &106. Here are my reviews. We arrived little early in the hotel , but the hotel staff was kind enough to allot us the room in advance as the rooms were free that time. I booked the rooms in advance online and so...

Maybe it is normal in Asia, and especially for the price, but I don't like Hotelrooms without windows, and at this hotel the most of the rooms don't have one. The room was very small and noisy. We could hear anything from the floor and the rooms next to ours. The bathroom was also very small and the shower was...

We spent 3 nights at the hotel and were really disappointed. I´ve read many comments of people saying that the hotel is a great value for the price, but from my point of view this hotel is very overpriced. The room is small, the mattress is made of plastic or vinyl (so the sheets are always slipping which is very...

We only stayed at this hotel for 1 night due to our flight cancellation. It is right in the heart of little india. The rooms are small, basic but more than adequate and great value considering the cost of most Singapore hotels. The front desk staff were outstanding, giving us a late checkout until 3pm, kept checking with the airline...

This is a budget hotel - rare in Singapore. I compared it to getting a private room in a hostel (I'm not into the dorm thing) and found thismtombe only about $10 more. Lots of what's said in other reviews are true - rooms are small; bathroom is combo toilet/ shower; one outlet (with another quite hidden in the wardrobe)....

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.
