Hi i have recently read some advice on this forum about hotel 81 in singapore. I have booked my first night accomodation at this hotel via a hostel website for £8 per person for a twin bed ensuite (£16 per night). I am a bit worried that this is too expensive or is this cheap for singapore. Does anyone know if this is what you would pay for the same room at the same hotel if you just arrived with no reservation? Please help, if this is a good price i will stay for 4 nights. What do all you experienced travellers recommend?
Hotel 81 is at the lower end of the hotels generally. However there are many in this chain. Your Hotel 81 would have another word following the Hotel 81... if you could give me that name, and the address, I could then comment specifically.
Hear from you.
That works out to be about $50 SGD. not that bad, as HQ said it depends where it is. When I was there I stayed in the Fragrance Ruby hotel, 20 lorong 20, in Geylang. This is the red light district but the hotel was clean and even had HBO. My rate was $38 SGD (£11) per night, it is normally $43 SGD but I booked it at Changi airport and got a $5 SGD per night discount. It was at the hotel reservation desk as you leave the Arrival lounge.
I hope this helps.
HQ, the hotel 81 name is The orchid and its near to china town. Have you stayed there? It seems i got a fairly reasonable deal anyway so i will be sticking to the resevation i have made. Any good hostels you can recommend elsewhere in asia. especially in malaysia and thailand.
