About 81 Chinatown

Set in a charming old shophouse-style building in bustling Chinatown, this unpretentious budget hotel is just two minutes' walk from the nearest metro station. Along with its premier location, 81 Chinatown offers free Wi-Fi and a 24-hour reception.

Bright rooms with parquet floors and traditional decor come with desks, flat-screen cable TVs and tea/coffee-making facilities. Family rooms with mini-fridges are also available.

Guests can make use of laundry and dry cleaning services. There's also a tour desk and a lift.

This neighbourhood has a seemingly infinite number of Chinese and Asian dining and street food options. There's even a friendly little Chinese restaurant (Sixi) right next door to the hotel on New Bridge Road.

81 Chinatown is a 15-minute stroll from the Singapore River and its buzzing Clarke Quay area. The iconic Merlion statue at Marina Bay is a mile away.

Positive Reviews

Location is perfect for exploring and eating

Guests loved this property's location as being in the heart of Chinatown enabled them to explore this vibrant district, and savour its fantastic culinary options, with ease. Having a metro station so close by went down very well too.

Friendly staff members are super-helpful

Many travellers raved about the service they received from the hotel's affable personnel. The swift check-in and check-out process was really appreciated as well.

Negative Reviews

Guest rooms are very compact

Guests were largely unimpressed by the amount of space they had to play with in their rooms. Even visitors who were expecting a characteristically small room were surprised by just how tiny the ones here are.

Sound travels far too easily throughout

Travellers noted that the thin walls which separate the guest rooms do very little to stop noise made by other guests from entering your room and disturbing your downtime.

Bathrooms are small and poorly designed

Very few guests liked the fact they could sit on the toilet and clean their teeth at the same time. Disgruntled reviewers also disliked having a shower that wasn't enclosed from the toilet and sink as it meant pretty much everything got wet during shower times.
