Hotel is located about 10-15 minutes walk from Nex Shopping Mall/Serangoon MRT station. Just the normal budget hotel, with small room. Nothing much to shout about. There's a convenient store (7-Eleven) and mamak food store beside it.

This hotel is clean, with friendly staff, but it is VERY basic, to the point of spartan. The bathroom for instance has no separate shower stall, but rather a shower faucet on the wall and a drain in the floor. The room I had, had a bed, small desk and stool - no chair at all. There are several restaurants...

I stayed in the standard room for a night. It is the cheapest room and there are no windows in the room. Here are the pros and cons: Pros: 1. Price is very attractive, only $99. It is cheaper than the Fragrance Hotel next to it. 2. The staff are friendly. They will always smile at you when you enter...

Hotel is located nearby Serangoon MRT station, which is located just beside Nex Mall. It is just a 10-15 minutes walk to the mall/MRT station. Checking in was easy and WiFi connection is fairly good. Suitable for short stay/business.

The pictures must be of another hotel. This is a dirty street in Singapore. The location is the worst possible. No restaurants of any interest within walking distance. Staff friendly but this is obviously a short time hotel. I brought my family thinking the pictures looked ok, only to find out that is NOT a picture of this hotel but...

This branch of H81 is slightly more expensive than the rest, maybe because of the location. Quiet and peaceful around residential area. Within walking distance MRT station and eateries. Small room as usual.

Located on the outskirt of heartlands. It's quite easy to get local food in the vicinity. Just right next door is a coffeeshop selling Indian food. In the basement of the quiet mall on the other side of the hotel is a very humble Chinese restaurant with 3 Chinese words on the signboard selling excellent local Teochew cuisine. These are...

Nice hotel, quite far from the city. There was a SMRT station nearby, though. The room is very nice and clean. Rather small, but enough for 2 people or 3, at most. There is a tv and a dvd player, too. There was a nice place to sit next to the window, a bit like a narrow table. But I...
