“Colourful and quirky”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

The colour scheme is very interesting and bright, it was great! The rooms are small but the bed was very comfortable with wifi in the rooms included which was great. Room service is expensive and $4.50 for a can of drink in the lobby is ridiculous. Buffet breakfast which wasn't included was nice but a bit on the expensive side. Very close to outram park station which made travel easy and like others have said if you time it right they have a shuttle bus running to the station anyway, but its only a 5 minute walk.

I stayed here only one night in early January. I found the hotel very clean and comfortable, but slightly on the 'sterile' side....meaning a lack of warmth. The staff was friendly and helpful enough.
The location was just a bit too much out of the way for me. I think it could be suitable for many people, but I'mm not sure I would book this hotel again.

We stayed here on our trip from London, UK to Auckland, NZ. With only one night's sleep in Singapore in between the long flights this was a perfect place to revitalise.
I would definitely describe the hotel as "quirky" and "out of the ordinary". It's themed with very bright colours in disco style and if you don't like that it's not for you! :D
The hotel room wasn't very big but we were quite high up with an amazing view of a park. It was very quiet and tidy.

We didn't go for breakfast here but we did have a few freebies in the room (pepsi, water and I believe some small snacks) which we enjoyed.
The location is great, it's only about a 10~15 minute walk and you're in Chinatown and you can get some ridiculously cheap amazing food (Singapore is a food lovers paradise!)

Hotel Re! is a quirky hotel with a pink exterior and 70s retro disco theme with orange, purple and pink inside. Good for your budget hotel stay while in Singapore.

Pros:
-free Pepsi, water and snacks basket in your room on arrival. Particularly helpful since that same two Pepsis would cost you $8 in the lobby. They re-supply the two bottles of water daily which, again, is helpful.
- free shuttle to the nearest train station, Outram - both to and from
- rooms appointed with your usual shampoo, conditioner, lotion but also toothbrushes, toothpaste, and a host of other toiletries like comb, Cotten swabs, nail file, etc.
- walking distance to Chinatown and MRT train station
- fridge and safe in room
- selection of international channels on flat screen TV
- good room service dining options
- good A/c in rooms.
- park view nice from room
- free wifi

Cons:
- no pool!
- overpowering rose fragrance in lobby.
- the shuttle does not always operate everyday.
- I found the beds and pillows uncomfortable.
- no bath tub in our room, just cramped shower.
- situated up on a huge hill which is a bit of a trek
- doesn't sell stamps in lobby but will mail your postcards for a service charge of $1.10

Room tip: ask for higher up floor with park view

Disability note: not recommended if you have mobility disability due to location or scent / chemical sensitivity.

Overall:
Fine hotel, but next time I'd stay at one with a pool and bathtub for a more luxurious experience.

This hotel is the best location for sleeping, where no hotel and entertainment around, just city park and busy street. We book, came, check in, and got what we want, room in high floor with city park view. Even a bit far from MRT, but they have shuttle bus with time schedule. Free wifi, fast, and great signal.
If you dont like pink color, dont stay at this hotel. Great design, with theme, lux, clean, a bit expensive, but money value.
I would like to stay again, with breakfast this time.

Room Tip: High floor, garden view, thats it

This hotel is ideally located, not too far from the city and only 25-30 minutes from the airport. There is a free shuttle bus service to and from the nearby Outram Park station every 20 minutes, between 08:00am and 8:00pm most days. Outram Park is right outside the hotel and provides a pleasant walk, either before are after breakfast. It's also a brisk 5 minutes walk through the gate and you are at the station and another two minutes and you are in Chinatown.
Although every where is within walking distance, if you like walking, the train system is very good and isn't to difficult to understand.

Our stay was short (only 4 days) and included New year eve celebrations so didn't see as much of the sights as we wanted to. But it's a lovely city by night.

My mum and I stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. The closest MRT station is "Outram Park" which is quite a climb down or up - depends on from where you are coming.
They offer a free shuttle every 15 minutes, if you figure that out and if they are really going you are lucky. When arriving we had to climb up the hill with our heavy bags because no shuttle bus showed up at the MRT station for more than half an hour.
When we entered the lobby there was the smell others have already mentioned. And it was freezing. The "perfume" remained the whole 4 days and after climbing up the hill, I don't wanna be welcomed by this every time.
The rooms are small but stylish. Depending on the floor you are on, the rooms are designed in different colors. If you bring huge bags like we did after being in Asia for 9 months, there is no space to store them in the room we've stayed in.
Breakfast was not included and the restaurant was uninviting so we went out for breakfast/lunch/dinner every day.
One night, after along day of shopping and walking we wanted to relax in the hotel with a drink in hand, but the bar was abandoned. Even though music was being played no one showed up to serve us drinks. Nevertheless, the bar is nicely styled. Very american.
Anyways, we did not spend much time in the room, due to the city being so interesting and exciting, therefore, the hotel and the rooms were great. Sleeping quality was very high, no noise during the night.
