Hotel Manager
Check in was rough. They gave us smoking rooms even though we requested non smoking room. They changed new rooms for us but there were something bit me the first night. I didn’t mention it cuz I’m thinking it might not from the bed. Second night my uncle said same thing then my aunt. Last night Hotel Manager heard our conversation he then moved my aunt to new room. I didn’t want to move being it was last night. He was understanding and very nice and professional. Though there was lady working that day we checked in, she was rude and defensive when we told her our rooms were smelled very bad(smoking). We loved location. It’s in the heart of China town.

We stayed in hotel 81 during formula 1 week. Room was a bit small, however it was clean and had everything we needed. Staff were excellent and were only to happy to help with anything. It is situated at n the heart of China town and right next to a metro station making it a perfect base. I would definitely return and stay again.

Location is excellent. But, sound proof system of the room is poor. The room is clean but too small to be comfortable.

If you only want to stay here for location
The location of the hotel is great, the condition of the room is very small. We book the room for 2 people which is queen bed. To give you an idea of how small the room is only one person can walk around room at a time. shower room is together with shower, toilet and washing in one small room. We did not use house keeping most of time we were there because the room was so small that not much space for our suitcase, no space to hang clothes.

Great location
It's a bit cramped and could use an update but you can't fault the location. It's right in the heart of Chinatown, close to food, culture, shopping, mass transit... You shouldn't be spending that much time in the room anyway!
