We enjoyed our stay at hotel Re. A short 5-10min walk into chinatown. Rooms are small (as expected) but nice. Breakfasts are average (but again as expected). Good for a few nights, wouldn't suggest for a long break.

Stayed here for a night with my girlfriend. The very first thing that caught my eye was the retro decor and secluded location though nestled right in the hub of the city.

The rooms were clean and adequate with sufficient amenities provided.

The breakfast and overall service though is why I am not giving it 4 bubbles. Service staff lacked warmth and never really smiled. The guy at the restaurant got back to us a good 10minutes after our request for pepper.

So while it's decently priced and located centrally, service really could do with some improvement.

I stayed there from Feb the 28th until March 3rd - 3 nights - but I wasnt too impressed. I will not recommend staying there. I booked the hotel through hotels.com that had breakfast included but the final voucher did not have that stated anywhere on it... so had to to do some back and forth to get what I had paid for. So advice #1 - prefer agoda than hotels.com
Next, being a veggie (was traveling with family) the chef did not pay any heed to our requirements - okay food - not much variety. I think the star rating needs to be revisited. It should ideally be rated as a 3* property. The shuttle is only for the sake of it - the 2 times I think I'll take the shuttle, the driver would be on a long break or would be on leave. Though the property was clean... the room size was small. Overall, a no!

Room Tip: Select a different hotel :)

Singapore has become an expensive city and hotel rooms run well beyond 200 bucks, so if you are after a quick and inexpensive stay / stopover it becomes costly quickly. I found this place on the booking websites and being well under 200 bucks booked it for a few nights - you can also book direct for about the same price.

It was easy to get to from the airport, can take a taxi but we took the MRT (train) which took about half an hour but cost only two singapore dollars each. The MRT station is about a 10min walk to the hotel but it is uphill, which wouldnt be great for the older or less mobile traveller.

The overall location of the hotel is great, it is close to Clarke Quay and Chinatown as well as being at an interchange MRT station that basically gets you to all the major sights of Signapore without having the change trains or get confused.

We were upgraded to a larger room, I would be guessing the 'standard' room might end up being really small. Bathroom was clean as was the rest of the room. Staff were very helpful. The walls are a bit thin and if you have excited noiser neighbours you can hear them (we laighed afair bot at this) but it wasnt too bad.

It is not five star, it is a solid three star hotel and all in all a good place to stay for a cheap quick visit to Signapore. I recommend.

Room Tip: A higher floor and a larger room than the cheapest is probably the best idea. On reflection I I was...

Just spent 3 nights at Hotel Re! after seeing reviews and was disappointed. The hotel had good reviews and was the lowest priced 4 star in Singapore. That's because it was a 3 star place. Nice decor, but the service was not what I expected. The breakfast was fine, but with jet lag I was ready for an early breakfast and had to wait until 7. The advertised shuttle was not available all the time -- airport runs meant no shuttle for two hours.
