I travelled to Singapore with my son to see the F1. I chose this hotel because of it's close proximity to the circuit. Unfortunately, it's location was the only positive about this hotel. We stayed in a twin room. It was small, had no windows and the beds were that hard, it was like sleeping on a wooden plank. The...

My wife and I stayed in Court Yard Room - Hotel 81 Bugis, Singapore, Middle Road. Court Yard Room sounds great, but in reality room, for sure, is nothing that you could imagine! In total 12-16 sqm, you can’t walk around room. It’s only 10cm (or even less) from the wall to the bed, bathroom is 1.5 sqm only. Unimaginable...

They upgraded our room from standard w/o window to a room w/ balcony for free of charge which made our stay very comfortable. They provided us 2 access code for wifi but internet connection didn't reach our room though.

Good place to rest in Singapore. Singapore is a small city so a hotel such as 81 would be more than enough either for friends or couples. 7-11 is downstairs. Subway Restaurant is nearby. MRT is as well near by. Rent a bike and roam around is better.

If you are to find cheap hotel with 2-3 people, Bugis Hotel 81 would be a good choice. The bathroom is too small and includes restroom inside. If you have more one devices that need wifi connection, you need to ask receptionist to give you two separate accounts.

We spent one night here after coming in very late to Singapore. We only wanted a place to crash until we could get into our preferred (and much more expensive hotel) nearby. We did save money but it was a mistake. As has been said before, the rooms are tiny and the shower, sink and toilet can all be used...

I've used this hotel several times now for Singapore stopovers. It's clean and delivers to a standard. Previously it had the appearance of a 'knocking shop', something which was not apparent on this visit. It's central location is ideal, be it for business or pleasure. Standard rooms are compact and often completely internal. Go for the deluxe room for more...

Since Singapore is expensive you cant expect to much from a low budget hotel. Take a room with window even it is like $10 more a night. Bathroom/toilet is very-very small with showerwater all over the place. The room was cleaned good every day always with new linnen and towels. The location of the hotel is very good, the street...

The location is great near by the Bugis MRTstation. The food center / shopping around this hotel. There also a convenience store next door. And it has free wifi availability, complimentary toiletries and coffee /tea. Good hotel reception dealt with friendly check in and efficient. Housekeeping changed bedsheets everyday. The hotel itself was very clean. All in a good average...
