The rooms are very small and very minimalist but very clean. The location is great since it is near the bus stop station and a few minute walk away from the train station. There are lots of restaurants around the hotel so no worries if you are hungry anytime of the day.

But one of this chinese lady with freezy hair was kind of rude when she return the money back to my fiance. Who does she think she is? Is she the boss? She was placing the money of the counter like we owe her money. And when we ask her for extra towel instead of saying we will send it...

Hotel is small, the staff speaks politely but you wont get any amenities like bowls or plates. Room service also does a poor job cleaning up and i didnt really trust leaving out even a hairbrush in the hotel. Avoid this place if your with family because its near brothels and the nearest SMRT station (Aljuneid) is 15 min.

This hotel is clean with reasonable price (even at Christmas). Rooms are supplied with steady hot water for shower, which made the trip unforgettable. This is our third trip to Singapore in 2016; and Hotel 81 Star is our choice beyond doubt. This is because of the good service and attitude of the staff team. The services here are consistently...

Staying in Geylang

Neighbourhood Profile
Geylang
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city centre, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colourful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
