We would definitely recommend this Hotel as it was in a really convenient walking distance to many attractions. Service was excellent. It has a small amount of rooms but this does not limit its facilities. In fact being a recreation club it has so many extras. Food & drinks were also well priced.

Room Tip: A previous Trip Advisor comment advised requesting a room on the Padang side room which we were give...

Pro:
- Good location, across the Raffles City Mall which had a direct link to CityLink mall and City Hall MRT.
- Rooms are comfortable, tidy and pleasantly enough.
- Staffs was very nice.

Cons:
- My view's overlook the street so it gets noisy at night
- Room separator is not "waterproofed" enough so I can hear my neighbor yelling and talking in a loud voice
- Breakfast was so-so.
- Price was $$

Room Tip: Hotel reception is on the Third Floor.

Location was perfect, very close to City Hall metro station. The green line is direct with the airport, so you can use metro to get from the airport (will cost you around 2 Singapore dollars per person). Attentive staff, they bought for us tickets in Aquarium with the discount and they let us leave our luggage for free in the storage room for more than 6 hours. However, the rooms and bathrooms were very small, expecially for 2 persons. Also it was also smelly in the corridor, breakfast was not tasty and overall I think hotel needs renovation.

Before we arrived at this place I was a bit worried about all that I had read on the dress code that is imposed on guests staying at The Residence. After having stayed there I realised I was worried about nothing. You only need to follow the dress code if you are going to certain areas of the building. The location of this accommodation is excellent, across the road from City Hall MRT, walking distance to Marina Bay and most places. The rooms are a bit on the dark side, but the bed was comfortable and I didn't have any trouble with traffic noise even though we were on the street side. Breakfast selection was a bit basic, but with only 25 rooms you don't expect them to have the same selection that a 100 room hotel would have. The café where breakfast was served also provided good cheap meals at lunch and dinner time, there is no dress code in this area of the club. The indoor pool was much bigger than I thought it would be and even though it is heated on some days, it wasn't that hot. I would stay here again if in Singapore.

Stayed 3 nights and was pleasantly surprised. The club is a great place to stay, staff very helpful and courteous. We wanted a room overlooking the Padang, and was given room 319 which had a lovely view of the Singapore Cricket Club. Room was very clean and although smaller than most hotel rooms, it was big enough. We tried to book the Hotel shuttle bus from Changi airport, but as the club is not a HOTEL they did not drop passengers off and was told to get a taxi.for $s30, so we travelled by train on the MRT which only cost $s2.20. The club is situated very near to the Marina Bay, and almost opposite City Hall MRT Station. Will defo stay here again

Room Tip: Overlooking The Padang, otherwise traffic noise is a problem

The location close to the City Hall metro station and it’s a short walk to a shopping complexes, the food and discount outlets at Bugis, the theatres, the Singapore Flyer. Upon check-in on the third floor of the Club, where all the accommodation is, we found the reception staff to be warm and welcoming and they provided us with information about local attractions. Throughout our stay the staff were pleasant and helpful. Our room opened onto a patio that faced the road however traffic noise was not an issue. The room, which was well appointed and had a king sized bed, was large enough for us to have our two suitcases without having to step over them. The room was kept clean and tidy as it was freshened each day. Breakfast was included in the room price. The food was fresh and tasty and consisted of an adequate array of cereals, yoghurt, milk, fresh fruit as well as cooked items such as bacon, eggs, and a couple of local dishes. The staff here were friendly and competent. Being a Residence in a British style Club means that there are a few dress rules but they are not onerous. The dress code usually applied to areas of the Club we didn’t use. We enjoyed our stay

We had researched the hotels in Singapore thoroughly before choosing The Residence . We chose it based on the reviews, great price and location. It was the perfect choice. It was welcoming, clean, had great wi-fi and a fantastic breakfast.

At the end of our stay we decided to use the MRT to get to Changi airport even though most people suggested we hire a taxi. As we were across the road from City Hall Station and had used it exclusively for our 4 day stay we decided it was an easy option. As we left The Residence two lovely staff members of The Residence offered to help us with our luggage to the train. They were fantastic and this was unexpected. The train ride to the airport was quick and easy.

If we ever come back to Singapore again or if we have to recommend a hotel to friends, we would definitely recommend The Residence.
