Experience was OK except that the special request wasn't inform earlier that it 's not available, and the different staff at hotel 81 mentioned different things. Hence I feel it should have been communicated earlier. Otherwise experience was OK overall.

The room I booked is supposed to be non smoking room. but when I went inside the room, it was like heavily smoked out. The room was filled with ciggeratte smell! OMG! Even when I went home, my clothes are soaked with Ciggarette smell. Definitely will not recommend this hotel.

If you're on a budget but hates hostel or shared dorm then this hotel could be a perfect choice. Located in a relatively quiet area, the room is a bit small, but the toilet is clean and the AC works well. That's all you need after a long day in Singapore. There's and Indian Muslim restaurant and also 7 Eleven just beside the hotel. So it's very convenient if you're hungry and looking for a quick bite. Check-in and check-out was very quick. Staff are helpful. I had a pleasant stay here

We have been around but prefer to stay around Bugis, Little India, Orchard. It is not so comfy to get on and off taxi because it is on busy street with lots high speed cars with no parking space in front. It has small parking at the back/basement and cannot be reached by elevator, you have to go out of the building first then walk on the pedestrian side way carrying all the luggages to the back of hotel/basement. If carrying lot of luggages or bringing elderly/kids, quite troublesome to load/unload in a hurry.. If you wanna comeback to the hotel by bus from Serangoon central, you have to climb up and cross using high pedestrian bridge to get to the hotel.. not suitable for kids and elderly... food option is limited around, only one halal food and a pizza, a durian stall.. unless you take a bus 3-4 stops away to the mall/bus interchange. The room is okay, big window, the staffs are not so helpful/friendly.. unlike other hotels around.. only 1 bottle water per room. Aircon central, okay. The toilet okay but they missed to clean traces of spots from previous guest.
