                Located right in front of a bus stop, Hotel 81 Balestier is strategic and convenient for any traveler. The staff were accommodating and helpful, the room was clean and well-maintained. One main point for improvement is that the hallways smelled strongly of smoke. Suitable for singles or pairs.

                Clean, convenient, efficient staff

                I stay here each time I go to Singapore. I've not had any issues at all. There's no need for a cafe as there are lots of eateries in the vicinity. Transportation is not a problem at all. In addition, there are 24-hour convenience stores and ATMs within 300 meters from the hotel. No complaints, given that the hotel is for those on a budget

                Value for money, location is convenient and was pleased with Fatin's customer service. However, the rest of the front desk officers need more grooming in serving customers. Room was not properly cleaned upon checking in and blankets could use a change - imagine dealing with 3 layers of blanket separately. Suggest changing it to a quilt instead or tying it together so that it doesn't create a mess.

                The staff was good n helpful, excellent services”

                staff,locations n still the staff,the condition of the hotel was not dat good

                The staff were really excellent, i forget what the names of the the two staff, one chinese n one malay guy, time check in is 12.30am instead of 2pm, the chinese guy should work in a 5 star hotel. I couldn't believe i could find such excellent service here but i was a bit turn off by the room cleanliness, is dirty, but not to dat extend, somehow like hostel instead of hotel. Dark patches was seen on the celing wall. No chair available. But staff service overwrite my unhappiness towards the room. I could have pay extra $20 more for a bigger room opposite the hotel call quality hotel. Turn off was the toilet.

                Upon reaching, the receptionist literally shouted for our IDs like we did anything to piss him off. Bed was hard and room was insanely small. I think this hotel is actually an overpriced 2 star hotel. Will not return.

                We always choose this hotel because of its accessibilty. Booked through agoda because they offer a good rates. And we feel comfortable to the place already since we always check in most the time.

                We feel good and at ease already in this place. One good thing that happens to me in this hotel was when I forgot my wallet inside the room. I only noticed that my wallet lost when we checked out already. Then I called the hotel staff to check if I left it inside the room and the staff said they found it in the room. So thankful that I was able to retrieve it back. So I can say that Staff in this hotel can be trusted.
