Convenient location with large rooms.
I have stayed at this hotel several times in recent years. I love the spacious rooms and the courtyard pool. It has wonderful eateries in the vicinity and a supermarket just up the road. It is a few minutes walk to the Payar Labar MRT station which gives easy access to shopping and sights. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Good location, poor customer service
Situated where there is a 24-hours Halal restaurant. Only downside is that the reception was not very friendly and a bit lazy to answer the phone when we called the operator

Hotel 81 Tristar
I was served by a young chinese man at the reception when checking in.He's rude and not experience. He gave me a small room with triple bed, soo cramped even the aircon not working.My wife called him and requested to change to another room and he started raising his voice and stated this is the room that we want. very rude person. Eventually the older guy at the reception change our room and we appreciate that.

Good budget hotel in Geylang Serai
Affordable, big spacy room although require makeover of the room, it's quite old and less clean. Wifi not really working that well. Location just next to Geylang Serai. About 15 mins walk to Paya Lebar MRT station. 10 mins to One KM Mall. Overall okay.

Old and run down
We always stay here because of the easy access to food not because it is nice. You have food stalls below and all around you which is the best thing about this hotel. It is very old, run down, old furniture but the family room we booked was huge. It is one of the cheapest hotels in singapore the others are very expensive. The lobby is very small but nice so im not sure why they cant revamp the rooms too. There is an atm machine right outside the hotel which is very handy too along with a mini mart.
