Hotel 81-Tristar Singapore Reviews
Hotel 81 Tristar Nov 28, 2010
This hotel is about 20mins away from the airport by MRT and a 5min taxi ride which is pretty convenient, especially if you're only in town for a few days.
There's a convenience store and food court open til late right next door to the hotel, which is a blessing when you arrive at 9pm while battling major jet lag.
The service I received from the front desk was very professional and friendly, which I feel was the hotel's greatest asset as they were very helpful and courteous at all times.
As this was a 3 star affair (hence the Tristar in the hotel's name), the fittings and furnishings were outdated but kept in good order, except for the desk in my room.
I also lucked out on the bathroom, as the ensuite had some issues with the shower area running out of hot water, a bit of mould near the fan and some strange gyprocking thing going on with the ceiling. Please see the pics for more details.
Apart from that, I wasn't too fussed over the details as it's priced well enough to compensate for its flaws. I didn't stay in the room much though and would only come back in the evenings, so I'm not sure how one would fare there in the longer term.
I also had a mini bar fridge, aircon, broadband internet access and there was a pool right next to my room as well, which I had a full view of from my window.
These amenities combined with the service was enough to make my stay very comfortable, so I definitely recommend this place to anyone thinking about a stop over or a short stay on a budget.
