Hotel 81 Premier - Star . Singapore

You might notice that I seldom post about where I stay when I'm out for travel, I finally decided to post one (more to come if some of them really good) as I really feel that this hotel is quite good and affordable, will definitely stay here again if I'm in Singapore next time. Every time when it comes to a travel trip, accommodation is most important thing that we should insist about, so that we can get a good rest after a long day walk. I'm okay with anything as long as the room and bathroom is clean, most important is the bed.

After did some survey, we decided to stay in Hotel 81 Premier - Star, which is just revamped and upgraded in late 2013. The hotel 81 have 24 hotels under their management, all of them located near the central area of Singapore and with different theme. As for the Hotel 81 Premier - Star, it's located at Geylang; yes it is in a red light district which if travelling with kids we would probably avoid but as a travelers like us, we didn't see any problem it will cause. It's like a budget trip for us, the branch at Geylang provide cheaper deal compare to Hotel 81 located at other areas, it's like only $100 for a night in superior room. 
If you want to view their hotel exterior design and lobby, visit their website here as I was too busy to snap the photos, or I should say I didn't foresee I'll blog about the hotel. I like wooden kind of thing, and the room is really up to my liking, wood everywhere including the floor! I like their concept that the basin is out from the bathroom, you can enjoy your tooth brushing moment while getting some view from the window (temporary no good view from there, as renovation is on-going there). I read some of the review in tripadvisor and saw some bad comments on the room, but it's just fine for me as you get what you pay for, or it's just some old comments before they revamped the hotel. Their service is quite good as well! We booked the room without paying any deposit, we only made the payment when we reach the hotel provided you bring along the email confirmation from them. 
Wi-fi is including in the hotel fee and is reset by daily basic, you will need to get a new username and password from the staff on the next day, the internet speed is fast! Like normal hotel, you will get mini fridge, electronic safe, LED television and complimentary beverages & toiletries. Nearby they hotel, there are many local hawker stalls but we didn't give it a try until our last day, the nearby Aljunied MRT station is just around 5-10 minutes walking distance. If you do not like the walking, just request a taxi service from the staff, they are really friendly and willing to help. I'd enjoy my stay there and would come back again if I'm there.

Ps. we noticed there are a lot brothels opposite the hotel, we were so yearn to know how it looks like in there, but no chance.
