Airco super quiet and supercool, everywhere. I much liked the japanes ambiance, the vintage neighbourhood, that is great for budgetshopping and acupuncture, Fair price finest located near Joo Chiat Complex. I loved my quiet peaceful room and the bath tub. Overall it is my favorite budget hotel, TIPS: go visit the Tamil temple on Ceylon road and do not leave...

I must applaud all the staff at Hotel 81 Sakura, especially Adrian at the reception. Attentive, efficient, courteous and understanding, he made my stay very comfortable and welcoming. Gladly to point out cleanliness has been maintained. Amenities quickly replenished made my day. Great job! Well Done!.

The hotel seems ok from the outside and the reception, hallway seem alright but once you enter the room its completely different. The room is very small with not much room to move around in. The shower was right next to the toilet seat so you would wet everything around you including the toilet roll if you dont move it...

The room are nice, but the smell of cigarettes. Should be improved odor. Accommodation near MRT not require 15 minutes of walking distance to the station. The nearest MRT station is Paya Lebar. This hotel is near shopping Joo Chiat Complex.

Standard room with budget price per night. The hotel location is great. Quite near to the city district and downtown area. However the MRT station is quite a distance away, its walk-able though. There's a mall along the way to the MRT station, City Plaza. A mall which sells cheap and fashionable clothing, similar to Bugis street. There're bars and...

The room was clean and well set up. The staff were friendly and helpful. The price was good value for money. The location was close to a mall and restaurants and not far from the metro. We enjoyed our two night stay here.

Staying in Joo Chiat

Neighbourhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighbourhood is packed with colourful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.

“Empathy and kind understanding would be more appreciated than personal vendetta. It's not so much the sweet furnishings but the kind services rendered. In which case, this hotel lacks severely.”
