A very late minute booking, chose mainly due to an appointment close by to this hotel, turned out to be an excellent choice.
We arrived at approx 2am directly from the airport, pleasingly the taxi driver knew exactly where the hotel was. Checkin was extremely efficient and quick. The lobby was large and uniquely decorated, but I liked it.
I booked a deluxe room, I received a room on the 12th floor. I was very pleased with the presentation of the room. It had lots of different colours and textures, to me it looked quite inviting. The room was not large, but more than enough space for my girlfriend and I. Some minor noise intrusion from the street outside was noted, but it certainly didn't bother me.
The bed was not the usual hard Asian hotel bed, it was large and comfortable. The linen appeared all but new.
The bathroom was well presented with walkin shower (not bath type), it appeared quite new and well maintained. The shower had excellent hot water! Again the linen was all but new. From memory, it was stocked with soaps, gels , toothbrushes and shower caps etc. One item of note was the "step" into the bathroom - there is a small raised step between the bathroom and hallway...I tripped twice on it (I am sometimes clumsy granted!)...just something to take care of.
Interestingly there were some complimentary minibar items! I believe Wifi was also complimentary, I did not use it. There is an LCD TV and DVD player, but I did not use them. There is a telephone in room, along with desk and closet space. I didn't go looking for a safe, but the hotel advertises the room has one.
I cant really comment on the location. My first trip into Singapore only lasted the 1 day, and was specifically for an appointment.
I had breakfast in the lobby restaurant. It fills a space (stomach), but simply matched many other hotels basic buffet type with a mix of western and Asian foods. One day stay may not be a good enough of a sample though!
Checkout @ 930 am was equally as efficient and easy as checkin. The staff at checkin and checkout were friendly, with excellent english....too easy!
Whilst this is the shortest stay I have ever had in a hotel, I was very pleased with it. Easy checkin and checkout, I really liked the decor and presentation of the hotel and the room accomodation, and the interaction with staff was easy and pleasant. As long as the location suits me, I would be very happy to try Hotel Re! again next time
