“Poor Soundproof. Okay services”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during a recent business trip to Singapore. Hotel Re is a short walk up a hill from Outram MRT station. The hotel also provides a regular shuttle to the MRT station. Room size is fine and the design is definitely a bit retro-funky. However, you can tell that the room has not been very well maintained. The desk has some rough touch up work. One of the biggest problems that I have with the hotel is that the room is NOT soundproof at all. I could easily hear people walking in the corridor, opening the door etc. all night long.

Overall, it's an okay choice to stay in Singapore, given its relatively affordable pricing.

The Hotel Re! is located near Chinatown in Singapore.
It has a retro style. The rooms are spacious, with a nice bed, fridge and TV. The bathroom was nice but there was mold on the walls near the shelf to put your shampoo. It is a shame because just a little bit of bleach would get rid of the mold and the bathroom would look decent.
They provide you with soft drinks and water every day.
There is a shuttle to go to the nearest metro station. I was able to take it to go to the station but I never found it when coming back. When I asked about the schedule, they told me to call them and they would pick me up. The reason you may want to take the shuttle is not the distance, the hotel is located on top of a hill that could be challenging if you are not fit.
The restaurant is expensive compared to other options in the area and mainly Asian cuisine.
The gym is a joke. A couple of cardio machines in a room with no air conditioning. So it must be 50 degrees celcius inside the room. If you dare to go for a run on the treadmill, you may pass out.
Clarke Quay is a 15 minute walk from the hotel.
If you are looking for a reasonable priced hotel and you don't mind a little bit of mold on the shower wall, I recommend this hotel.

Dear Globetrotter_DBA,

Greetings from Hotel Re! @ Pearl’s Hill!

Thank you for your detailed review. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay in the overall. We agree that it will just require that little bit of effort, the mold can be removed and our bathrooms will look neat! We have since then informed our Housekeeping & Maintenance department for a round of checks.

Next round if you stay with us again, do have our staff to help you with tuning the air-conditioning in the gym. We look forward to seeing you again!

Attended my niece's wedding at the hotel. 2nd time stay and fully satisfied! first stay 25-28 sep.
Convenient with shuttle bus to/fro hotel to the nearest Outram MRT station.
Love the quiet surroundings. 10 min walk to China Town. Within close vicinity to Clark Quay & Boat Quay.
TV channels selections can be improved.
I was disappointed that the hotel did not offer a better rate despite that my niece (the bride) tried to book a room for me.

Room Tip: In Sept stay in room 702; this time 710. Noticed that bed is bigger in 702.

Dear YeoAhSuei,

Greetings from Hotel Re! @ Pearl's Hill!

Thank you for your review! 702's bed was bigger due to combination of 2 twin beds while 710 is a queen bed on its own. Wedding couples are usually entitled to a 50% off rack rates. She can choose to utilize the wedding package entitlement, join us as a Re!Member to enjoy special rates for members or even book directly through our website for best available rates.

We welcome you to stay with us again sometime soon! Cheers!

Booked this hotel as part of a birthday celebration for myself and my boyfriend in October. We decided to try this hotel because I won the Hotel RE membership and there were special rates for it. I normally book my hotels thru' hotels.com/ agoda etc and since there was a discount, I booked straight from the hotel website.

In the end, after the discount, the price on the hotel website was more than what was stated on agoda/ hotels.com. They explained that it was because thru' the website we enjoyed specials like early check in/ late check out, cancellation charges apply only 48 hours before etc and went ahead with our booking.

We did enjoy the benefits of an upgrade in room, early check in and late check out but we paid more than what we would have paid on the hotels.com and other websites. We mixed up the prices ourselves initially though, because I thought what was given by the hotel was equal to what was offered by hotels.com but I missed out the fact that the price by the hotel was before tax. So just to note, nothing special about the member discount unless you decided the other 'specials'. For us, we just wanted a affordable stay and the price that works out was nothing fantastic compared to the other hotels in Singapore famous for staycations. And this hotel did not have a swimming pool and breakfast was not included, hence, we will not stay again unless there is a significant discount.

The Pros:
Free parking on site and shuttle bus to Outram
Walking distance to Chinatown
Complimentary DVD rental
Very secluded and peaceful surroundings
Had a nice small park beside the hotel for a morning stroll
Complimentary bottle of wine given as we were celebrating our birthdays
Comfortable and pretty retro room
Complimentary basic mini bar

The Cons:
No swimming pool
Gym (Needed to get key from reception though gym is on 10th floor which is very convenient because we happened to stay on the 10th floor. In the end did not go)
Breakfast not included (For that price that other hotels would include breakfast)
Most of the DVDs were not available/ rented out
Price not justifiable for the above reasons

All in all, it is still worth a try if you are the type that enjoy staycations around Singapore or travellers wanting to be around Chinatown. However, if you are not a frequent stayer in Singapore, then skip this hotel.

Room Tip: High floors, corner rooms

They had good online rates. Rooms are bright and clean. Staff is friendly. Near Chinatown and a short walk to the nearest MRT (subway). Quiet. I stayed here twice and had rooms on both sides of the hotel. One one side you get a park view. On the other side you get a city view. Good either way.
