    the space room is bigger than other hotels of the same classes

    the air conditioner was noisy and the bell sound of lifts going up and down bothered me

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Like the swimming pool.. Would be great if there was a gym... The room was comfortable and the beds were ok.

    One of the receiptionists wasn't very friendly or helpful.

  • Single
    5.4

    The room was clean and spacious. The staff at check in and check out were efficient and professional.

    The super king size bed was fitted with king size sheets and the mattress was protected with a vinyl cover. The fact that the bottom sheet slid around on the vinyl cover gave a very unpleasant night. Lying on vinyl in not conducive to a restful night. I gave up attempting to sleep at 4.45am.

    First of all, the location is good, especially for Moslems, since it is surrounded by lots of Halal food (with low price). It is also near two mosques, made it easy to pray. For Malay tourists, you will like the area since it is on kampong melayu, thus you will find no difference in language. It is also very near with the bus stop and MRT station (Paya Lebar). Some taxis also keep going around the road so if you want to take a taxi, just wait in front of the hotel. Minimarket is available 24 hours right next to the hotel. Don't find what you need? Jusk within 3 minutes walk you can fulfill your needs at the higher supermarket at Joo Chiat Complex. The room is big (unlike the other budget hotels) and the staffs are very friendly and helpful.

    Nothing serious to tell about the weakness of this hotel. Only there's no breakfast service, but you can have it from the hawker street nearby. My great appreciation is for Mr. Azahar who helped me so kindly during our stay at the hotel.

    location, food stalls ok, near grocery and convienient store, room is spacious, aircon is good, staff were accomodating. swimming pool ok and safe for kids

    first the smell in lobby, the toilet has leak on the floor, my ratings for cleanliness overall 80%,

  • Single

    It was nice and close to the MRT..less than 10min walk. Pretty quiet and staff friendly and helpful. Convenient for a short stay in Singapore on a budget.

    The only real criticism I have of Hotel 81 Tristar is that the bottom sheet was too small on a plastic covered mattress, so not tucked in at all, by morning it was all in a ball underneath you...not very comfortable and kept waking me up.

  • Single
    6.6

    Rooms are of a reasonable size and quality for the money. Other similar priced hotels in the area are smaller and less clean.

    I would have expected fitted sheets on the beds. The staff were not especially friendly. This hotel is not carpeted as is often the case.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    I like the fact that it was near the MRT and the other shopping places plus it's location was safe and clean but quiet quaint and had good value. I felt like I got a taste of the locals just by going thru the nearby malls, shops and restaurants. People there were also generally friendly and welcoming but not overly so.

    Well, I would have wished that their remote for the telly would be working but its not a very major thing. Generally, the hotel had very good value.

  • Older travelers

    Friendly, helpfull staff.

    No soundproofing on the room door, very noisy. Sheets don't fit the bed.

  • Family with children

    Easy to find Muslim Food

    Put more effort to maintenance on toilet facilities

  • Single
    3.8

    Nothing. It was a creepy, mouldy and I felt particularly uncomfortable staying there. It was completely overpriced.

    The mould on the ceilings. Dirty filthy air-conditioner in room with no cover. Battered old furnishings. Spartan interior. Rotting timber underneath door making a two inch cavity from the floor.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    The neighbourhood was especially interesting for us. Previously we have stayed in the CBD of Singapore. The local of the Hotel 81 Tristar is a more insight into how most Singaporeans live. The availability of nearby food outlets was of great benefit to us and became our focal point for our party of 4 people for planning and meeting and just socialising with each other and friendly locals. The area around the Hotel is predominately Malay which was very interesting food wise and culture wise. Having a swimming pool was an added bonus which we appreciated.

  • Single

    Facilities, e.g. Free WiFi and etc.

    Even had advance booking via internet, they still charged me about 15%+ while checked in. Reason given was the booking has no credit card deduct and it their risky to accept internet booking. My internet booked price S$355 for 2 night, actual paid was at S$400, really bad experience!!!

  • Family with children
    7.4

    Very convenient. Food court, grocery store, atm machine below the hotel. Near Geylang Serai Market, MRT Station. Triple room is very big.

  • Family with children
    7.0

    I like the location because near to malay foodstall..my kids love the swimming pool.

    Far from mrt station. I brought 3 kids age 9,7 & 3. End up using taxi all the way which cost us around sgd10 to sgd20 per trip (from hotel)
