Very old run down hotel currently having much needed renovation. Very good and friendly staff though. Central location to eating places. Clean and comfortable too and reasonably priced. Daily room service. Wifi only worked in lobby this trip.

My wife and I spent a delightful three weeks at the Red Rock and enjoyed the hospitality of a very friendly staff. While the Red Rock is not as flashy or modern as some other hotels it is nonetheless clean and comfortable and very well placed in the middle of the hawker food district.

Sofas spoilt, (feel the 'bone' when sitting). Bed are not comfortable, only one pillow provided for one single bed. Most importantly, no priority parking for guest(they keep says no parking where by we can see parking space available from outside), this is annoying to find a parking slot beside the road. We suspect they want earn tips by giving parking... More

After we checked-in the room we headed up to our room which was in the third level and once we reached... More
