I absolutely love Hotel Re. I've been there with friends and also stayed there on my own. Admittedly, the rooms are little pricey for how small they are, but I think it's well worth it. I'm a real sucker for design - this hotel really does a good job with its design and you feel really comfy and HAPPY in the rooms, which are all in poppy, bright fushia pinks or lime greens, and given a cute retro twist. The beds are EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE, I could have stayed in bed the whole day given the chance! Bathrooms are small but very nice, excellent shower (sounds like a small thing, but I think having a good strong shower is one of the most important aspects of a hotel room!). Free wifi, great little amenities like the mini bar and toilet is kitted out with nice freebie toiletries.

The only "bad" thing is that the rooms are a little small so if you have a lot of luggage it'll be a little tricky fitting everything in.

A really fun place to stay, especially with friends or for something like a weekend trip away with a close friend or partner.

I guess it is already a known fact that hotel rooms in Singapore are generally small and expensive… and there were no exceptions here. Check in was smooth though there is funny fragrance around the lobby that wasn’t quite to my liking, smells a little bit like industrial cleaning agents. We checked into a deluxe room and we were not surprised by the room size. This being a boutique hotel, most décor was in pink colour and we had Marilyn Monroe silhouettes over our beds. The most difficult part was probably the lack of space to even place your luggage. At least there was a cupboard in the room, so you could put all your clothes in it and stow your luggage away. The bathroom is of decent size though, with basic amenities provided. The room is clean and neat, with tea/coffee and electric kettle provided. The mini bar (if you can call it that) is free, with couple packets of snacks and canned drinks being replenished daily. In-room WiFi was pretty decent as well so there’s nothing to be picky about really.

The hotel is on top of a small hill. Taking a 5-minute walk down the hill you can find some small eateries and a mini market nestled around the flats at the foot of the hill. Walking a bit further you will reach a rather big food court called People’s Park and also a mid-sized departmental store called OG. Around the corner is Chinatown so if you are geared for walking there are a few places to explore about. There is also the Outram MRT station near to the hotel though with a family, we preferred taking the taxi and the front desk was always helpful to call one for us. The hotel is located at the southern part of the island so it is quite near to Sentosa Island and also Marina Bay Sands. The Garden by the Bay is definitely a highly recommended spot to visit, and be prepared to spend at least half a day there, preferably including the evening to take in the night view.

All in all, the hotel was a decent stay especially if you are out sight-seeing the whole day and only coming back to sleep. If you enjoy a little bit of walking and quiet environment, you wouldn’t complaint about it being on top of a hill. Though the lack of a swimming pool in the hotel was strongly criticized by my kid as an gross oversight :p

me, my wife and my 8 year old son came to this hotel for a short 4 day vacation in Singapore, where we were greeted with sweet and warm smiles, our check in was fast and really smooth with no delays, the front desk staff really know what they were doing... when we got to the room... it was really amazing, white clean sheets, comfy bed and very spacious... our room had a big tv and a ref, and bottled water (i'm sure you know how much a bottled water costs in Singapore, right? this is really a big deal...) they have hot and cold shower... and each day after a quick sight seeing tour... every thing was replenished and arranged like the time when we checked in. everyone was so helpful specially LEO, he went above and beyond... he bent over backwards until the back of his head reached his ankles... that's how helpful he is, nothing was ever too much for this guy... he gave us instructions on how to get to the tourist spots in the area, hotels need more people like Leo, such a great guy, if I was the owner of this hotel i'd give this guy a raise... he'll i'd give him his own branch... over all it was such an amazing experience and i would definitely come back and definitely recommend this hotel to all my friends and relatives...

Ideally located near metro. Free shuttle bus is regular.

We had an elvis room, and contrary to what others have said, we found the room to be spacious and decor delightful. The room had a fridge, which was replenished daily on a complimentary basis (water and pepsi). Also daily replenished was jasmine and earl grey teabags along with oreos and savoury snacks. What a delight!

Bathroom was super clean with dreamy lavender toiletries. Our room did not include breakfast. Flat screen tv with clear english channels.

Staff were also very friendly and helpful, especially when there was a mix up about the method of payment.

Definately would stay here again. Exceptional value in an expensive place such as singapore.

Excellent value, particularly as Singapore is so expensive. The hotel is bright (very bright) clean and well looked after. We drove down from Kuala Lumpur were pleased to find free car parking outside the hotel, again, this is excellent for Singapore. The location is good and if you aren't driving, there are steps down from the carpark (like the hotel, on top of a hill) to the MRT. Taxis are easily available.
The double room was small but perfectly adequate for the two of us and the bathroom had a large shower cubicle. Everything was clean and well kept. Wifi is free. The only fault we could find was that the rooms aren't well sound proofed. We were woken before 6 by a crying baby, so loud that it could have been in our room.
The staff were cheerful and welcoming when we arrived and throughout our stay did everything they could for us.
Breakfasts were very good value and offered a choice of Western or Asian food - I had a delicious congee and my husband had freshly scrambled eggs on toast.
If we need a hotel in Singapore again, this would definitely be the one we'd book as it offers excellent value and a great experience. Recommended!

Hi Neighbour! You will be glad to know that many of your other counterparts also love our Hotel's complimentary parking when they drive down from Kuala Lumpur. We must apologise for the crying baby who woke you up in the morning. Nonetheless, we are so pleased that you enjoyed everything else that our Hotel provided you with. It's only some few hours drive, and we surely hope to see you back again! Cheers!

It was the best hotel based on the price that we spent here...
It is located in a Pearl's Hill...As it mentions "Hill" it's really located in a Hill but i thought it better described as a Pearl's Hill Park...because in front of the hotel, there's a big park which was great for walking in the morning or even in the evening..
About the room :
1. FREE WiFi with VERY VERY HIGH SPEED
2. FREE Mini Bar...Refill everyday..
3. Comfortable Bed..
4. Great Room Design
5. Nice Bathroom

Definitely will come back there when i visit Singapore...

Dear JuliusAW,

Greetings from Hotel Re! @ Pearl's Hill!

Yes, maybe we should consider your suggest to call ourselves 'Hotel Re! @ Pearl's Hill Park'! Indeed, many of our room guests love the park beside us and do their morning walks and evening jogs there! So close to nature and the air is much fresher! The next time you return, be reminded to seek for a Garden View Room then! Cheers!
