            clean & simple, typical hotel 81”

            clean, neat, & sufficient for short business stay

            i checked in to hotel 81 at balestier road because all hotels were somehow fully booked during the week i traveled. it's a very typical hotel 81 chain setup. a hard cold bed tucked with thin sheets of bed cover & blanket. not entirely ideal for someone who are particular about comfy beds like me. the room is tidy but clean & well equipped with all basic amenities. a rather popular local hawker center, named as "whampoa food center" was conveniently 10 min walk away. no mrt stations nearby though.

            Clean, convenient, efficient staff

            I stay here each time I go to Singapore. I've not had any issues at all. There's no need for a cafe as there are lots of eateries in the vicinity. Transportation is not a problem at all. In addition, there are 24-hour convenience stores and ATMs within 300 meters from the hotel. No complaints, given that the hotel is for those on a budget

            cheap, easy to find nice food around.

            the hotel is ok, clean, easy check in and out. bus stop is in front of the hotel. so easy to go to city. along the balestier road there are lots of nice restaurant around. only minus thing is during our stay there are people staying right in front of our room, they are smoking in a non smoking hotel!!! smell all over the floor! and very noisy too. we complain to the manager, and they immediately responded and talk to the people not to smoke.

            Value for money, location is convenient and was pleased with Fatin's customer service. However, the rest of the front desk officers need more grooming in serving customers. Room was not properly cleaned upon checking in and blankets could use a change - imagine dealing with 3 layers of blanket separately. Suggest changing it to a quilt instead or tying it together so that it doesn't create a mess.
