“Funky and great value, even for a business traveller”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Hotel Re! is located on Pearl Hill along Chin Swee Road, in Singapore. It's a boutique hotel, with a retro theme that also caters for the business traveller. Much of the decor is in bright colours, such as pink and lime green.

Check in was fast and efficient and I was given a complimentary upgrade from Deluxe to Premier. The table lamp was not working and a call to reception soon had a maintenance person come over to fix it. The room has the silhouette from Saturday Night Fever in white over a pink background. The toilet was equipped with a shower and decked out in pink tiles with embedded bling. The colour scheme might not be for everyone, but overall room comfort was high and very clean. There were some cracks in the toilet tiles but these did not cause any leaks.

The Premier room comes with complimentary snacks, 2 bottles of water, 2 cans of Pepsi, a small pack of Oreos and 2 packs of snack food, in addition to the usual 2 servings of instant coffee and 2 tea bags. The usual staple toiletry is also provided, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, toothbrush, comb, etc.

The room is equipped with a safe that can fit a notebook computer and the usual iron and ironing board.

The bed is very comfortable and as the hotel is on top of a hill, it is very quiet and great for a night's rest, when compared to some other hotels in Singapore that are in busier parts of town. The only downside is that it's quite a walking distance to get food if you don't want to eat in the hotel. However, this is mitigated somewhat by the reasonably priced food items available. WiFi worked without any issues.

Breakfast choices were basic but tasty and served in an area next to the reception. Checkout was fast and efficient and overall I would recommend Hotel Re! to any business traveller who would not mind being in the heart of Singapore, preferring instead some quiet. The only thing to get used to would be the bright colour scheme, but when you turn out the lights for an evening's rest, colours are not a problem!

It is a unique experience as this hotel is decorated as a set of a movie from the 50's. the rooms are nice with great views to the city on the higher floors or to the park if you prefer more quite rooms.

I just loved the decoration, the amenities , the lobby with music from the 80's. beds are conferrable, bathroom great and spotless and room size was ok for one( rooms in singapore are relatively small)

The service was fantastic, helpful, smily and welcoming.
Location in just short 10 mnts drive from Marina Sands Bay and 5 from China town. I found it convenient as Taxies are cheap.

You must understand that the hotel is offering a uniqe experience as it is not another Holiday inn. I loved it and felt like home.

Next trip to Singapore I will book it again and that is the bottom line.

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.
