The Residence At Singapore Recreation Club
Ranked #118 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed April 18, 2011

Stayed here when it was still new and there was even no website yet. Kinda felt hesitant as I didn't see any reviews on this hotel back then. I booked anyway as I love its location -- it is walking distance to Citylink, a lot of other shops and if you really love walking, you can even reach Esplanade. It is close to a lot of museums too. If you are a guest, the staff would know you easily since they only serve a few "outsiders" as they are catering mostly to the members. Room is small but cozy. Loving the bathroom most especially. They serve breakfast but don't expect a lot of choices on the buffet table. I think they don't serve food in the rooms as they wanted to maintain cleanliness of the place, but they do have drinks and coffee on the house. This is the best place to stay during the F1 night race.

Residence at the SRC scores over other budget hotels in Singapore. Its a 5tp 15 min walk from various important destinations such as Suntech International Convention, City Hall MRT stop and Swissotel on Samford, which has a lot of eateries in the subway catering to all subsets of The East. Also would you find in that subway a pizza place, Starbucks, McDonald, economical Money changer, all of these just 5-7 mins walk.
The Residence at SRC is indeed very neat and clean, compact with only 23 rooms. Rooms and bathrooms are nice with all basic amenities required. Staff very warm and courteous, will to help in all possible ways. The breakfast included in the stay was average. Other in-house recreation facilities such as gym, swimming pool, bowling lanes are all well kept. Budget travelers hitting the hotel just to sleep is a great option. Vey peaceful

Really enjoyable stay. Small but comfortable stay in tidy room. Great view of the skyline from the balcony. Great facilities, would have like to try the pool. Good breakfast with lots of options. Staff very helpful. Nice to  be able to leave luggage for pickup later in the day.

On arrival at the Residence it feels like what it says, a recreation club that has some rooms for rent. All the 26 rooms are on the top (3rd) floor with half facing the quiet Padang and the others the noisy Connaught Road. When we booked we asked for a quiet room but did not get one despite having booked 4 months previously. The feeling we got was that they were reserved for the "members" as they were nicer rooms. We asked to be moved during our stay but were told it was not possible.
Breakfast was included in our rate which was very good.
The rooms were small but nicely furnished and strangely they all have a common balcony that anyone can walk around which means you have to keep the curtains closed as people walk past and look into the room.
Another issue we had was the charge of $100 to our credit card upon arrival which they could not explain why they were making it but insisted that it had to be done and later credited off the bill.
Compared to the other larger hotels in the area (Swisshotel just across the road) this was a very good room rate but obviously did not have the luxury or surroundings of those types of hotels.

Had a nice stay here with a room that opened out onto terrace over looking sports field and the sky scrapers over singapore. V clean, decent breakfast and friendly staff- would definitely go back! Good value for money for expensive Singapore. Also has free gym and pool plus other activities.

Finding a good, centrally located hotel (that keeps you within budget)) in expensive Singapore is very taxing! Thanks to Tripadvisor, I found a hidden gem and I have been telling friends to consider it when visiting Singapore. A first impression that lasts is the genuine hospitality – from the confirmation of the booking to our check-out. I think everyone on night duty was informed about our midnight arrival, I was very happy with the efficient check-in as me and my mom were very exhausted from our KL side trip. The room looks and smells very nice! It combines the old charm and the conveniences of modern living. The bathroom and its fixtures are new -- beautiful and spacious! The toiletries are arranged very neatly. Unlike big hotels, we got immediate assistance for petty requests (such as adaptor, can’t find the light switch, etc) because they have a small reception area on the 3rd floor, just a few steps from the rooms. For the price and location, nothing beats the hotel -- a lot of must-see sights are accessible by walking. For further destinations, the City Hall MRT is just across the street from the main entrance. The hotel’s 3rd floor garden terrace provides a good view of the Esplanade and the Marina Bay Sands. The buffet breakfast is simple but tasty and adequate. We stayed only 1 night at the Residence coz I did not make my bookings early (they only have 28 rooms, I guess). We were not able to use the other facilities, especially the gym and the swimming pool, both of which look very well maintained. Learning my lesson well, I have already booked way advance for a 5-day return trip to MY Residence this April.

The rooms are small but clean and regularly serviced. Breakfast is a standard 'American/Asian' buffet, also some cereal and pastries. There is a bowling alley in the hotel which was fun and cheap. Free newspaper in the mornings. We emailed ahead to let them know we'd be arriving at 3am and they were ready for us. Basically, everything was above average for a less than average price.

The downsides were very minor - the TV didn't work very well and the bathroom walls are frosted glass (though there are blinds you can put down).

It is a two minute walk to the City Hall MRT stop, we also walked to Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, various malls, Singapore Arts Museum etc. We would definitely stay here again.
