Last March 8 my family and I went to Singapore for a short vacation. As part of our itinerary we checked in at Hotel Re. We arrived at the hotel at around 7pm so by that time we ate our dinner there and we ordered their laksa. Their laksa was super delicious though it was my first time to eat that type of food I enjoyed it even my family as well. They're serving a great laksa. Our 4 days stay were great one of the entire staffs were great especially Leo was very accommodating he went out of his way in providing us extra pillows & blankets. He was the one who introduced us their laksa food since we are new here in Singapore. Location was great it's very accessible if you're going to Chinatown as well...

Room Tip: Room on the 8th floor has a nice view...

My family and i have stayed at this hotel twice. There is wonderful service; they would help us make booking for taxi, and there is a shuttle service to the MRT , which makes it really convenient to get to the city and suburbs. The staff are very helpful and polite. What is great is the family suite which is suits my family of three because of the one queen-sized bed and a single bed for my daughter. Breakfast provided has a good variety including century egg porridge, siew mai and crispy lemon chicken which were all quite tasty.

Room Tip: the suite is suitable for small families

I have been staying in several boutique hotel in the past, i can say the Hotel Re! is not a bad hotel. However, its has not reach the level boutique hotel yet

The location of the hotel , to me is not really a problem, but its indeed quite isolated when at night. The nearest MRT station is about 500m away and its also about 5 to 10 mins walk towards the main road. The hotel do provide free shuttle bus service from MRT station to hotel

The check in process was quick, but not as friendly ,maybe I reach the hotel at about 830am in the morning .
The business room i have booked ,which I expected to be a some extra power point for me to charge my laptop, my phone and also ipad. However, I found only 1 power point below the desk
The room is also quite warm until i need to tune the A/C about 18 degree. The room is comfortable in general but I can see that the furniture is starting to get dated.

In all, Hotel Re! is an affordable mid-range hotel, which also trying to be hip and funky, however, from my opinion, it is very hard to be one, but there is still some way to go ...

A group of three of us recently stayed at Hotel Re - we were expecting the usual 'mattress on the floor/sofabed/trundle bed' for the third bed as is usually the case, and were delighted to open the door to a nice, spacious room with two separate sleeping areas & three real beds!
Having stayed at some very cramped hotels in Singapore in the past, this hotel is going to be a keeper for us. Not only was the space good, and the beds comfortable, but the service from the staff was excellent. A nice place to stay overall.

The hotel clearly is not a 5*, but it does deliver what it tells you.

Yes, it's about 5 minutes to walk from Outram MRT, but there is a shuttle bus during the day, with the schedule hang up in the elevators. It's about 3 minutes walk to Chinatown also, with a small but nice Hawker center and a cheap supermarket (Sheng Siong) just next to it. So, I certainly wouldn't say the location is as bad as others have described it.

I got an upgrade to an "executive" room on checkin. The room was of acceptable size, with a few non-alcoholic drinks, water, and some snacks offered by the hotel for free. Much appreciated. The bed was comfortable and the room itself quiet from outside. Aircon was ok, but not really great.

Regarding the bathroom, I do agree that there is mold in the bath tub area, but it's not that it's very bad. They should try to erase it, that's for sure, but it wasn't a "game killer". The shower needs to be "heated" first, but that just takes a few minutes. Afterwards, the water is just fine.

Free, quick Wifi, very much appreciated. It's a shame some hotels - especially those calling themselves "Business" hotel or 5*, charge you an arm and a leg, while decent hotels like this one, offer it for free.

For what I paid, this was definitely more than I could expect in Singapore.

Checkin/Checkout was quick and efficient. Guys with purple shirts are certainly weird, but the hotel does call itself "retro", so it's perfectly ok.

Try to erase the mold in the bathroom, maybe make the elevators a bit quicker, that's about all I could ask for. I'll gladly give it 5 points here overall, as value-for-money is perfect. The hotel is not perfect overall, the the value is.

Decided for a short staycation during the weekends. Stayed over at Hotel RE located at Chin Swee road twice business room and premier room. Hotel is located right next to a hill. walking from outram park MRT station would roughly take to mins about a 30 degrees elevation up slope. However there is a shuttle service that is provided at roughly 20 mins interval from outram park MRT. Shuttle service ends at 8 pm . Check in was a breeze greeted by the friendly receptionist. The room view i got was mainly the one facing Singapore General Hospital and Tiong Bahru. Room very very clean had complimentary internet and minibar which was great . Toilets came in mosaic tiles which we of different colours. The premier room had standing showers where as the business room had bathtub and le'occitane amenities.Nice large flat LCD TV with cable channels. Overall a nice stay , only thing is that the location was not too great but i still enjoyed it .
