“Great location and design, but lack of sound-proof wall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

I went to Singapore and stayed at Hotel Re! on my family vacation for 4D/3N on deluxe room.

I liked the hotel's design. It's fun, stylish, unique, and yes.. it's RE!tro
The surrounding area was quite and green, since it's located on a hill.. I enjoy my walk along the hill from Outram Park MRT Station to the hotel, it's around 600m long. And sometimes I use the complimentary shuttle from the hotel to MRT station.

About the room.. Overall it's clean. But I found ants walking around on my working table, even after the room's make up done.. I still see ants on my room on the next evening.
For sleeping quality, the bed and the pillow is great. But one thing which disturbing is the the room's wall which I found it's not sound-proof enough.. I can hear people's talking on the corridor and moreover on my next room. On the middle of my first night stay, I have some sleep difficulties because the guest on my next room is talking and laughing out loud, and I can hear them clearly. So I asked the guests service to talk to them to keep their volume.

The bathroom is clean and nice. And they provide some snacks for complimentary on each room which is perfect.

Overall I enjoy my stay here.
I wish that Hotel Re! will do something to keep the room sound-proof.
Thank you

Hotel re is a fabulous hotel! At 75% less in cost then all the other hotels its a bargain. It has all the items I require: comfortable bed, hot shower, in room safe, and the shuttle to the mrt is a bonus ( although it is only a 5-10 minute walk). The mini bar is packed with free snacks which is a nice bonus and the staff are very nice. Taxis are frequent and use the metre all in all a fabulous hotel :)

The hotel gets the job done. It is a basic, clean and fairly accessible to mrt property. Chinatown and Clarke and Robertson quay are walking distance. Wifi was almost perfect, the evenings though there was a lot of congestion and not optimal speed. Staff is friendly and accommodating. No pool, tiny gym, didn't try the restaurant. Nice terrace bar to unwind. Did leave the property to transfer to another hotel at the end of my stay in singapore to enjoy more amenities. Very small rooms, would not be able to fit a baby cot unless you upgraded to a larger room. Free water and snacks is a nice touch. Taxis are fairly frequent. Did not use the mrt shuttle.

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. It was cheaper than 75% of the hotels I was looking at and the service/amenities were fantastic. It was super clean and overall very efficiently run. Ordered room service once and it was surprisingly better than some restaurants outside the hotel! The hotel also has a shuttle service that takes you to any subway station, if you'd like.

Because noise defense is low, and light is too bright when closing window curtains.
But room attender and front desk clerk is very nice and helpful.
Maybe the 5 year-old hotel, the hotel room facilities isn't working well, etc. shower nozzle leaks.

Good value for money. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean with a very large, comfortable bed. The free mini-bar is restocked each day with water, pepsi and crisps. The free shuttle bus takes you to the underground station every 20 minutes (only a 5 minute walk anyway).

Room Tip: Opt for an extra large double bed which comes free of charge

It was good for small family, with one single bed on the side near room entrance away from queen bed (which still gives privacy to parents). Good breakfast which came with stay... had dim sum, century egg porridge and western breakfast. Staff were courteous and provided good service. They made effort to book taxi when family didn't manage to go via free hotel shuttle service to MRT. close to MRT, at fringe of town so easy to go downtown. MRT is 5 minute downhill walk. Near Chinatown, culturally rich shopping places nearby. but no pool or bath tub facilities still good service, cleanliness and courteous staff and good value for money.
