Review of Hotel 81 Orchid
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 July 2012
I travelled with my primary and teen kids so we needed a 2 connecting bedroom. This is one of the few and it was all worth it. Close to anywhere, food take always, bus, shopping, transport, even entertaining locals trying to make ends meet. We don't mind, they were only humans. The hotel was well secured, no one can just get inside the fence unless you're a guest. The reception lady Nura was very accomodating from start even while communicating about our online booking. Breakfast wasn't priced bad but don't expect a 5star breakfast in bed. This is a great place for travellers who only wants to sleep and shower then go out and explore. Rooms are clean, can't complain. There's no TV which the kids didn't like (in their room) but hey, end of the day we're all exhausted exploring Singapore!

I've stayed here several times over the last 4 years. I just need somewhere to sleep and shower and this hotel satisfies that need. I like its location 100m from buses and reasonable distance from Kallang MRT.
I like the street life of Geylang Road with its wide range of restaurant and cafes.
It is in the red light district but it is not a threatening or unsafe environment.

The internet isn't even fast enough for a Skype call. I stayed here weeks. The rooms are small, and cramped. It is a budget hotel, but there are better ones.

Staffs unfriendly, unhelpful and doesnt smile. Even the Manager. Coming from a Hospitality Background, I believe the Star Rating of the Hotel shouldnt effect the Service Quality. Smile more. And be MORE Attentive to the needs of Guest. Rather than the TV that is being switched on at the Lobby. I am considering looking for other alternatives if I choose to stay-out for the night.

Reviewed 27 February 2012

We had booked in advance for 3 nights and arrived very tired in the middle of the night. We unpacked and changed and then went into the bathroom to brush our teeth. I had noticed a large dripping noise earlier but assumed a tap had been left running. The bathroom ceiling had three serious leaks. It was not raining. These were not recent leaks. The paint was peeling and stalactites of calcium-like deposits had formed around them. The floor was soaking and the marble basin bench-top was wet and stained white where drips had been landing for some time.

We rang reception and they offered us another room which stank of smoke but was at least dry. We had no choice so re-packed in the middle of the night and moved. When we returned home after our three days, all of our clothes stank of smoke.

Why did Hotel 81 Orchid rent out a room that clearly had a long-term problem, and why hadn't they fixed it?

Room tip: Check your room for stalactites and nicotine stench before you unpack!

Reviewed 28 January 2012

Our stay at Hotel 81 Orchid was very good, Arrived at 1:30 am to friendly staff. We enjoyed the location with plenty of shops and restaurants close by. A 5 minute walk to the MRT (Kellang) puts you close to anywhere in Singapore. The staff were always helpful with information and directions, they even looked information up on the internet for us. The cleaning staff were excellent. I knew the room (double) was going to be small but once you're there...it gets a little annoying triping over your luggage or sitting on the bed out of the way while the other gets dressed or packs. The internet is a pain. They change the passwords everyday (understanable) but you have to go down every morning to get the new code but your connection would time out every 20 minutes or so and you'd have to log back on. Other then that small thing I'd recommend the place for price, cleanliness, quiet street and good staff.
