Great value!

The hotel was very nice. Clean, large rooms, good staff, excellent location. Best value for money. Would most definitely stay here again, very happy with my stay. Paid extra to check in early - great for that early morning flight, and staff were more than happy to hold our baggage after check out until our flight time in the evening at no extra cost. No special amenities or perks, but if you want a good sized, clean room in a great location for an even better price - stay here.

Not good

My husband and I have stayed at Hotel 81 Bencoolen (which I now know to have been in Selegie Road) which was lovely & excellent value for money. Unfortunately we weren't aware that Hotel 81 Bencoolen is a chain of hotels in Singapore. This branch of the Hotel 81 Bencoolen chain was awful - more basic than a hostel, very shabby. Only plus point was central location. Definitely won't be making the mistake of booking this one again.

Excellent location to central

Excellent location to central Singapore and reasonable price given Singapore hotel prices. Wireless internet included. Quite basic room but no problem for a short stay. Food court and 7 Eleven across the street. Close to MRT. Only problem was the bottom sheet on the bed was too short and it was skin against plastic for my feet.

I just took the weekend off and checked in. Great location - food, cafes, pubs and convenience shop just around the corner. Museums, a shopping mall and a late-night cinema is within walking distance too. I'd check in again anytime...
