Hotel 81 Geylang
Looking for Cheap Hotels in Singapore?
Then Hotels in Geylang Are Your Best Bet
Typically, those who seek out budget hotels in Singapore already have concluded that when paying low rates, you’re going to abandon the creature comforts of the four and five-star properties.
The upside however, is you get really low room rates (less than US$50) and especially useful when you have a tight budget. The Hotel 81 Geylang is a perfect example of such a scenario.
The hotel is located just a hair out of downtown in the Geylang District with the Aljunied (EW9) MRT train station a brisk 10-minute walk away. This is a popular region where throngs of Singaporeans converge to save money on the abundance of cheap restaurants and wholesale mini-marts peppered throughout the district.
Staying at this property may not offer airy luxury suites, but it’ll allow you to spend your money on other delights during your visit.
From US$42 per night.

About Staying at Hotel 81 Geylang
Anybody who’s familiar with Singapore knows full well that Geylang has an active nightlife in addition to the myriad of local dining options, bars and shopping haunts. And that nightlife also comes with a side of ‘red-lightness’ if you will.
To the pleasant surprise of many visitors however, this “red-light” aura with the ladies plying their wares in the area, has rarely if ever been an obtrusive factor. After all, it is Singapore and that means high safety standards. Therefore, unless you have young impressionable kids with you, this district has deterred very few budget travelers due to the safety factor.
Hotel 81 Geylang itself has had minimal issues other its at times sketchy WiFi signals. Perhaps even ask for a room on the upper two floors to avoid any potential street noise.
Other than that, this budget hotel will indeed cater strictly to the cost-conscious who typically don’t have high expectations. Therefore, if a lack of nifty amenities aren’t a priority but you want to save on hotel fees, this property should be a welcome sight for both you and your wallet.
