“Quiet surroundings.”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

When we checked in, the beds were made but the bathroom was not - towels were used and toothbrush packet was opened. We told the housekeeper who was 2 doors away, and he proceeded immediately to help us get the front desk to change the room. But front desk was not so fast in changing rooms, there was only 1 person at the desk. The room is not very big, design is fun and quirky. There were extra pillows and ironing equipment in the cupboard, which were useful during our stay. Overall it feels more like a high end budget hotel to me.

Spent 1 night here on a 1 day trip to Singapore on March 29th. As advised by other tripadvisor users, my cousin and I stopped over at Outram MRT to get to the hotel as it was supposed to be "within walking distance". We followed the signs to the hotel but really it was quite long walk up the hill. It can also be confusing to find the hotel as we took the wrong road up initially and ended up outside the Peal Bank Apartment also located on a hill instead. Note to other potential future hotel guests, after getting out of Outram MRT stations, walk straight up the road (which is quite a distance) till you see the Landmark building. Then only do a right turn up the hill. There you enter hotel via Gate A. Hence, location of hotel is difficult to locate and can be quite confusing and there should be more adequate signs pointing out to travellers where to go once they have got out of the Outram MRT station.
Check-in was a breeze and there was this "rosy" smell all around the hotel lobby. I have to agree that the smell though pleasant but may also prove to be annoying at times. They need to hire a perfumer to improve on this. Otherwise the lobby ambience is nice though not luxurious or eye-catching. The rooms were small but big enough for 2 guests. Despite the photos posted on tripadvisor showing the rooms to be dirty and stained, I have to disagree! The rooms were exceptionally clean! Pink is the theme here (Pink is my favourite colour - a line from Aerosmith song of the same name!) Everything is coloured pink down to the toilet accessories. The bed was comfy and nice pillows to sleep on. It is also equipped with a DVD player, nice! However, the room I booked did not come with any mini bar goodies, only some packets of coffee/tea provided, what a letdown! I thought there was supposed to be complimentary mini-bar goodies? (maybe offered on more expensive suite rooms) Bathroom is adequate and shower facilities okay but it would be better if they had a sliding door separating the shower room and toilet rather than just a sliding curtain!
Overall, the hotel if rated as 4 stars is not really up to par but it's a clean and nice hotel to stay in. Definitely better than any Hotel 81/Fragrance hotel available out there (I like my hotel rooms to be carpeted). But if measured up to its 4 star rating, I don't think it quite matches up to its 4 star hotel status. As the hotel amenities are not exactly luxurious or posh enough to reflect a 4 star status hotel. Also the location of this hotel is just a bit way off, it's not exactly that near its nearest MRT station too (Outram). Hence if guests prefer to walk, it can be quite a distance. Also the shuttle provided by the hotel is only available every 15 mins, and that is a long time to wait just to get a shuttle to the Outram MRT, not convenient. But the rooms are nice, clean and facilities adequate for a short stay.

We stayed at the hotel this weekend 28th March - 30th We took the train from Changi airport and got off at Outram park station. It's only a few minute walk to the hotel from here. Check in was easy and the front desk staff were very friendly. The hotel restaurant is located next to the front desk.
Our room was 716 the elevator to the room is quick. We entered and I always check the view 1st. It was ok we could see some of the city but a few tress blocked some of the view.
The room was an average size The fridge, coffee maker, and free snacks and drinks were the closest to the door then the flat screen tv and dvd player mounted on the wall above the desk.
The bed was amazing so comfy easy to sleep and you are able to select your own pillow from a menu and they will bring it up. We did not do this since the pillows we already had were great.
There are reading lights by the bed and the phone is there as well.

The bathroom is setup nicely with lots of freebies from toothbrush, cotton swabs, shampoo, body wash etc. There is a bidet toilet and the shower head can be removed to be handheld. The only issue was with the shower if you are not careful the water will go around the edge and onto the floor even with shower curtain all the way closed.

The shuttle service to Outram Park station was nice and we didn't ever have to wait long at all. It would be better if it took us farther into the city but the train system is easy nothing seems to take more than 10-15 minutes to get to.

Check out was very easy as well and again friendly staff to assist.

Overall I was very happy with Hotel Re! and I would stay here again if I ever return to Singapore

It is close to the subway, it's nice, smells interesting, their shuttle to the subway is unreliable in a lot of cases, but it is a nice leisurely walk to the subway anyways. I can not complain about this place. Basically worth its cash, but the water pressure in the shower could be higher. That would have been nice. Whatever, no complaints.

As hotels are very expensive in Singapore and I am traveling with my wife, I was looking for the best at an affordable price. After making huge research and finally zeroed on this hotel, thanks to Tripadvisor contributors comments and reviews. This was our first abroad trip and definitely an excellent one, we stayed here for 4 nights on March.

The location is exactly situated between the Chinatown and Outram Park, both the MRT's are very near and walkable distance(10-15mins). The Hotel has backside gate which leads to Outram MRT and they have free shuttle to Outram MRT for every 20mins, driver is a nice person.

As I read in the reviews, we were welcomed by strong scent(i liked it) just by entering in the Lobby. Hotel lobby was good and they have a system for guests to use, check-in process was quite simply, but they don't have an attender to carry the baggage, so we shouldered our baggage and went to the room.

Hotel room size was good when compared to other hotels in Singapore, I stayed at 9th floor and park view was available that was pleasant. Bedding and restroom were good, mini bar was nice and refilled when requested. Hotel restaurant is bit slow in serving.

Singapore was very hot don't forget your coolers,cap/umbrella.

We had a great fun trip ;)
