“standard and not central”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2011

The reason I was staying here for four nights was because it's all pre-arranged for a workshop I had to attend. The amenities of standard quality although I do like a little touch in my room where they put this 'window' that can be opened to link the bathroom and the sleeping area. The location as I understand it is not central (no walking distance from any MRT station although Singapore is small and nowhere seems to be unmanageable with a short taxi ride). Breakfast was served only a la carte during my stay, efficient and friendly. I won't come back though if it's for personal trip. I bet there will be plenty options for a better value for money in increasingly pricey city-state. The cabbies knew it more as the ex-Orchid Hotel.

I've stayed at the RTC on five occasions beginning when the club was relatively new, to a month ago when it's several years old. The furnishings, carpeting and fixtures are all getting worn and dated and the place doesn't look as crisp and clean as it should. However, the overall design of the club is first rate, the restaurant (which serves western and Singaporean dishes) is excellent, reasonably priced and friendly, and the presence of the large, circular courtyard pool all combine to make this place desirable. The reception and room service are not particularly helpful so avoid them if possible (it's not possible). The club has rooms on the third floor and suites on the fourth floor. The rooms only have one oversized single bed - meaning these rooms are meant to sleep only one person. A folding cot can be added for an additional SGD60 per night. So unless you're alone, it's not that convenient or cheap. The regular suites have a sitting room and bedroom with decent king sized bed and large bathroom. Again, you can add a folding cot in the living room for a fee. The other suites are similar but larger and sleep the same number as a regular suite - in my opinion, they're not worth the increased tariff. Wireless internet is free for guests throughout but relies on codes which is a hassle if you have more than one device (need to keep calling for codes) and means having to enter the code each time you go back onto your computer. There are some dead spots as well that frustrate. However, since I travel here with family (children), the benefits of the secure surroundings, the pool, the fitness room, the bowling alley, the restaurant all outweigh the other unpleasantness. The location, while relatively close to Orchard Road is not walking distance and is thus inconvenient compared to other hotels.
