Dear Sir/ Madam, Thank you for choosing to room with us all these times, the team at Hotel 81 Bugis does work hard to provide an enjoyable and comfortable stay. We do feel encouraged by your kind and encouraging comments.

Location wise, Hotel 81-Bugis is one of the best. only several min to Bugis Junction, MRT station and Food Mamak (food stalls). But besides that, the hotel is a budget hotel. So you can expect small room, some are even without windows. But again, a great place to start your journey in Singapore.
