Reviewed 20 April 2017

I stayed here last 2013. The area is full of prostitutes (not necessarily the best place for a family). The hotel room is average but priced well considering the price of hotels in Singapore. The wifi is quite pricey.

Stayed: May 2016, travelled solo

Dear Hoseii, thank you for reviewing us, however we note that you stayed here quite a while ago in 2013. Our wifi is now free of charge and is certainly at a much faster speed than it was then. Thank you for your review!

The hotel in itself is terrible: very small rooms, a bathroom with shower almost over the sink and toilette and an air conditioning with 2 positions: off and hurricane pointed to the bed.
That said, it is in the middle of the prostitution quarters in Singapore and can offer a true taste of the city's B side. Seemed safe (at least for a man) even at night.
Do not go there if you can avoid it.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled on business

Dear Daniel L, we do understand the issues mentioned. The space and location is part of the reason our prices are extremely competitive! The pros are that we are located in an interesting area for food! We do appreciate the time taken to review us and will certainly take all reviews in our stride and work harder to make all our guests happy!

Check-in was relatively painless and quick. Jaslin was really great with her service. She gave us good recommendations and was very professional. It was great staying here. Food and public transport was nearby and easily accessible. Note: this hotel is in the red light district, and so if you are uncomfortable with that, you may be better off finding a different hotel. Only one downer: China tourists were very loud at 7am in the morning and had no concept of talking, only shouting down the corridor.

first thing first - this place is ideal for nightlife owls, foodies and backpackers ...excellent staffs, friendly & helpful, place is clean-clean & ideal for a budget traveler (though rooms are a bit small !! but can't complain for what you paid for !! ) Located in 10minutes walk from Aljuneid MRT( very much comfortable when you wanna take MRT from Airport - saves cab $$$ )

Filled with multi-cuisine ( singapore duck rice, fried hokkin mee and stout beers a not to miss in this area )

Those who wish to take cash from ATM's plz use your debit cards in any UOB/POSB etc and take how much ever you need ( for Indian cards just a rs20 for each transaction you do !! save $$$ from those money exchange agents !! really !!) just make sure your's is a VISA/MASTER and you are good to go ....

Do you wish to wash your cloths - just cross the hotel 81 and they have their another hotel 81 branch right opposite with washer and Dryer ( $5 each, per Wash/Dry)

finally nice & clean rooms with good Air-con, daily packed drinking water and peaceful sleep - all at your budget !!

thanks Kevin ( the front office person for your assistance ) will visit Asap :)

cheers,
Ken
