Best Value Hotel
Well this place was beyond expectations. It was reasonably cheap and the rooms were really comfortable. Its S$109 for a night and they provide complimentary bottled water and noodles in the cup.
Don't mix it up with the other Hotel 81 at Geylang (which is not advisable)
Unique Quality: Its location is right in Chinatown
Across the road is the Chinatown MRT and a shopping complex.
A bunch of place to visit around the area. The Maxwell Road Hawker Centre and the China Square Food Court, to name a few.
To get to Orchard road, its thru the MRT at Chinatown, switch trains at Dhoby Gaut, and off to Orchard MRT station. All in 10 mins (+/- the wait for the train)
Directions: Especially since it is close to the stop of the Aeroline from Kuala Lumpur (Grand Copthorne Water Front Hotel).
It cost S$3.50 to get to the Hotel 81 from the Grand Copthorne Water Front Hotel.
Hotel 81 Chinatown 3*
If you are looking for a budget and conveniently located hotel, then head down to Chinatown MRT (NEL) station and you will be able to see Hotel 81 Chinatown.
Food is abundant in Chinatown. Try Hong Lim Market, Smith Street and Chinatown Market.
Most of the other branches of Hotel 81 are located in the "red light" district.
Unique Quality: Located centrally at the busy junction of New Bridge Road and Upper Cross Street, in Singapore’s Chinese heartland, our Chinatown Hotel offers you a glimpse into the Chinese culture.
Directions: opposite Chinatown MRT (NEL) station
Noisy Hotel 81
In the perfect location to stay in Singapore, but so noisy to be able to sleep there. The noise of the traffic is imposible. Rooms are really smalls and bathroom with shower.
Its a new hotel, not so cheap if you think that there you are sleeping nearly like in the street because of the noise. I will not recomend it. I do recomend the location, search another hotel in chinatown.
