I stayed 1 night between connecting flights. I believe the hotel has had a full refurbishment in the last year. It seems quite new. Good decor and design for the small rooms. Bathroom is very compact but is fine and does the trick - toilet, sink and shower. Has free wifi and tv. Short walk to a lot of cheap...

In my opinion it's hotel only for one night. For me the localization isn't good and in the room is noisy. The bathroom and the bed is really small so it's not comfortable for more nights. The room is clean and the service are helpful.

Hotel 81 Gold - Singapore Twenty years since we were last in Singapore and much has changed; all of it for the better (and we’ve been travelling through for more years than we like to think, and certainly before the dramatic shift up-market). It’s expensive today. But what’s not to like about Singapore – the high environmental quality that impacts...

Our stay at Hotel 81 - Gold recently was not a memorable one. Service staff at Hotel 81 - Gold during our check in was unfriendly. Our superior double room was clean with working room facilities but had inconsistent water temperature for the standing shower.

Dear farizbinamirulbahar, we do note the issues experienced and will certainly be working hard to ensure that our front office reach the levels expected by our guests. We will also be looking into the issue of water temperature to see how we can best fix it! Thank you for your sincere feedback, it is much appreciated!

My fiancé and I checked into this place for a stopover in Singapore. After waiting in the lobby for a few minutes and watching others checking in after an hour and checking in for an hour with indiscreet girls, it became very obvious that this hotel rents rooms out by the hour for the brothels across the road. Fair enough,...

Great value, modern rooms with most facilities. Safe, fridge, desk and hair dryer provided, lacked only toilet brush. AC only went down to 21°C and window didn't open. But at least there was a window, this is not standard in Singapore. No laundry service. Moderately clean except for some spots, and the provided cups were often dirty, New cups were...

Stayed here for one night. About 20mins in a taxi from airport. Cost 30 Singapore dollars. Small room but clean and good wifi. About 10 minute walk to the MRT. Checked in late and checked out early so did not get a chance to check out the surrounding area. Would stay again.

Overall of the hotel appearance and cleanliness I give top marks but unfortunately the checking in process is a bit lengthy and also frustrating at times. Not sure as to why there is a need of taking everyone's particular as this is the first time this ever happens. Staff working behind the desk also needs to be a bit more...

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.
