Nice room with internet access”

Friendly counter service

located just 50m from geylang, singapore; ideal for those who like another experience of nightlife in singapore. best time is from 9.00pm onward till early morning. stroll along the geylang road and you will see the leisurely life style of some singaporean on this part of the city which is 180 degree different from the hectic life of most singaporean who live in the city centre. there is plenty of good food around; from the chinese simple meal of a " fried kweetow" to the more expensive dishes a la cart " sea food & lobster". good to spend a day or so at this part of singapore city. highly recommended to stay at hotel 81 - geylang.

A very enjoyable stay”

Hotel 81 on 20 Lorong 16 Geylang is a very well located, tidy and secure hotel. The staff are extremely courteous, helpful and supportive.
I would have liked more access to a wider range of television channels (eg Australia Network)

I would definetly stay at Hotel 81 Geylang again and said so to the staff. This is because having travelled extensively I found the comparative standard of consideration, the attention to detail and the courtesy outstanding. Moreover, although it is not located in a 'family' appropriate area of town it is a place I would take my partner. The rooms though not large are very clean and tidy. A small adjustment had to be made to have short showers (as hot water runs out in ten minutes) but that is what makes travel interesting and the adjustment is easy as the water reheats within an hour. When I requested an iron it was delivered very quickly with an offer that my clothes could be ironed for me. I ironed my own clothes and was very impressed with the initiative and courtesy. I could make as many calls per day as I wanted for only $1 for use of the phone. As I was conducting university research requiring making meetings this was particularly helpful.

Acceptable budget hotel”

Clean with 1 bottle of water provided free daily

this hotel is hard to find. it is actually at 16 lorong, not 20. there are many hotel 81s in singapore. geylang is known for having good local food, but i felt the food in the middle of the city was exactly the same and the same price. i am willing to bet that nobody ever comes from downtown to eat in geylang. if you want to see the "seedy" side of singapore, go here. it is very tame and overall very safe, but still the "ghetto" of singapore. the good news is that it is only a few subway stations to get downtown so you can really enjoy the good stuff that singapore has to offer. another positive is that great food is just outside the hotel - lots of options. i appreciated that each time i came back late at night and needed to eat. lots of places are open 24 hours as well. if it is your first time in singapore, absolutely do not stay anywhere in geylang, even to save a few dollars. you are better off trying one of the many established hostels downtown. if you've been here before or are comfortable in asia, you can give it a try to see a different side of singapore. very budget hotel, but overall pretty clean and safe. would consider staying at hotel 81 again, but in a different location.

Not far from Subway and ATM's, lots of local places to eat near by.
A/C didn't get the room that cold, no view out the window, and no pool or fitness center.

Located in what is considered the red district of Singapore, the Hotel 81 Geylang fitted the needs which I need to have met. The front desk service provided me with comfort, and information when asked. They were very pleasant to work with.

Convenience - as it is situated near to the MRT station - and also our Herbalife seminar was the EXPO, so travels times were less
The windows were sealed. I prefer fresh natural air to air-conditioning

Overall my stay at Hotel 81 Geylang was quite nice, as the staff did all they could, to make my stay comfortable. My thanks go to each and everyone of the reception team. I would recommend this hotel to anyone to stay in, if convenience is the need and not luxury. It would have been great if natural ventilations was available rather than just air-conditioning.

My stay at Hotel 81, Geylang”

The hotel staff are mostly friendly and efficient, and the rooms are clean - despite being amongst the cheapest online in Singapore.
The TV channels are very limited, and the reception is poor on things like HBO. Also, whilst they provide free packets of coffee and a kettle, the coffee is '3 in 1', which means it has sugar already added. So, I never used it. It would be better to offer a choice.

The hotel is convenient for me, as I keep most of my personal belongings (in Singapore) in a personal storage facility in Kallang (there are no hotels nearer than in Geylang). I have stayed there several times, and the reception staff gave me the Agoda website details (previously, I had used another hotel booking website). Despite the whole area being a low-price red light district at night (which I don't utilise!), the hotel always feels safe and reliable. I had a problem with a leaking pipe in a bathroom, but they moved me promptly to a slightly better room within 30 minutes, with no arguments. Overall, I would be happy to stay there again when I am next back in Singapore (later in April).

Great location basic room”

Friendly, helpful staff, close to food outlets, flexible checkout times

second time i've stayed at a hotel 81 in geyland (it can be confusing because there's about 5 in the suburb). two 'complaints' are that because it's a 'red light' area the beds have plastic sheeting under the sheets (for obvious reasons?) so it doesn't feel so good sleeping on the bed. also the bathroom and toilet are in a small cubicle which means when you shower the toilet and floor is soaking wet and a hassle with wet toilet seat and floor if you want to later go to the toilet. otherwise the free wi-fi is great, close to good food, if you want 'company' there's plenty to be had.

Fast Check in/out, Good room ambiance and experience, courteous staff

Was looking for an affordable, strategically located hotel to make our 1st Singapore tour memorable and Hotel 81 in Geylang didn't fail us. Though it is located in Singapore's red light district it was safe even if we were going back to the hotel late in the evening. There are also a lot of affordable but delicious hawker stalls nearby. We just often get lost going back to the hotel coming from Aljunied LRT Station. The hotel should reconsider the orientation of the map they give out to their clients. its a bit confusing. Overall, we had a pleasant stay. highly recommended.

Budget hotel, enough space for 2 persons, complete basic needs except for food

Hotel 81 Geylang has clean rooms and has a complete array of all the basic things you need in a vacation tour. Its a 15 minute walk to Al Junied Station (green line) but at night time the streets of Geylang are very crowded since its considered as the red district of Singapore. Nevertheless, the hotel is worth the value we paid. I suggest that it would be better if the guests can order food and delivered to the room.
