Very small hotel room, have what you need for short stay. The lady housekeeper were very friendly and helpful. The room have no window therefore there is a bit of smell of moisture.

Best to highlight of its location - 5 mins walking distance from Bugis MRT. Good news for books lover, the hotel is just placed next to Singapore National Library. The hotel room is small but clean. Free car park at the backyard.

A Japanese friend came down to Singapore for a short transit and stayed here. Never had good impression about the Hotel 81 chain, maybe I always associate it with some sleazy Geylang scene. Surprisingly, this little hotel is tucked along Middle Road, very accessible to all the amneties nearby and very near to town. We could even stroll to the...

Although a bit pricey, what I love about this hotel is near Suntec and Bugis junction so you can enjoy shopping. Train station is near and a lot of places to eat. The rooms are small but manageable. They don't have free Wifi.

Yup. 229 for a 12 hours stay on a new year 2016. What do I get? A queen sized bed, a small shower, and a TV in the room. Of course there is a 7-11 downstairs which is very convenient after midnight! Will I patronise again? Probably not and there are much better ones around.
