Hotel 81, Bugis, Singapore

Category: hotels

Hotel 81 is perhaps almost my perfect style of accommodation. Its simple, I’m not sure if it rates any stars and it definitely doesn’t have features and limited services (the check in area is the size of the bathroom I have in my Sunworld Dynasty room at the moment) however its ISO9001:2000 accredited, which I’m sure means something but I doubt it has any impact. I’ve used it once and it was nice and cheap, I needed somewhere to stay in Singapore overnight to grab some stuff and all I was using my room for was sleeping and showering so that was it. Of course for this price there are downsides, such as the fact the room I was in didn’t actually have a window (its like a basement room) and nor does it have internet. That said its location meant that acquiring internet wasn’t that bad (wireless access point at the Starbucks up the road did the job at a comparable rate to most 4/5 star hotels) and for what I’m doing, I don’t need any of those features. So if you’re really only after somewhere to sleep and clean the place is fine, albeit small. Technology wise its walking distance from Sim Lim Square and has a nice enough general shopping location as well as being close enough to transportation.
