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.
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.
Dear Naoko K, we will certainly convey our thanks to Front Office Executive Jaslin! Thanks for your kind review, it is much appreciated!
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 :)
Dear Kenthaufiq, we are certainly glad to hear all the great things about rooming with us at Hotel 81 Geylang! Hotel Manager Keith and his team will certainly be happy to hear that their hard work has been noted!
It's a very clean well maintained property, of course value for money in the middle of happening place, you get everything around the place bus stop, MRT, shopping even more and complete local experience. Feel like a home complete safety around nothing to be worried at all..... hoping to be around in this place again !! I will recommend this place for a well planned travellers !
Dear vinsonde, thank you for taking the time to review us! Your kind comments are certainly appreciated by the Hotel 81 Geylang team!
The hotel room look clean and size quite small for 3 person and not much to do in area around by hotel It's not so far to walk from MRT Aljunied Station about 10 minutes walk but you should eat before back to hotel food shop near by not very good idea
Dear Charnnarong P, thank you for your kind review! We do appreciate you writing about us so kindly!
