“Funky theme hotel - family fun maybe but not too business friendly.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2012

Stayed there for more than 3 days. Price so-so. Breakfast spread was very plain, after 2 days, you will get bored of it..

Room that I stayed in was quite small but clean. Plus point is the free tit-bits incl a couple of sodas which are refilled daily.

One thing that needs to be pointed out is that the elevators seems to accept only 3 (yes, you read it right.) room cards at any one time..so if there were 4 pax each at a diff floor, one pax will hv to wait till one of three pax get off on their respective floor before the fourth pax can insert and press their floor..really inconvenient when there's conference held in the hotel.

Other than that they have shuttle service but it ends at 7.30pm, which is too early..
Fyi, yes u can walk to the nearest MRT easily bcoz its downhill but walking back up hill with your business coat etc...not a good idea.

The disco funky theme will last for a day or so after that it's just..too bright colours. Overall, if the price is cheaper, it's an ok hotel to stay for short holiday but for business trips, suggest u go find else where.

You do get what you think you are gonna get, small room, clean with a comfy bed and a retro colour scheme.

However, do not under any circumstances book the package ('Relax' I believe).....you get 25 Singapore Dollars++ of room service every night which sounds good. But unfortunately the room service food is rubbish, and understandably you can only order food under this package (if drink was included, well, this review may be quite different). When we asked if the food was fresh, the room service staff were honest and said the only fresh food we could get was a plate of fruit. Funnily enough, I didn't really fancy a plate of fruit at night, I am not a Fruitarian after all, and I do have standards.

The breakfast is okay, liked the dumplings and eggs cooked to order, but the fact that on the first morning the 'egg boy' forgot about our eggs and was sat on the floor behind the egg counter eating his breakfast, kind of put us off.

Hotel Re! is an alright hotel, but just that....alright.

Location is a bit off as the hotel is literally in the middle of a park (rare enough in Singapore) but the Outram MRT station isn't far (beware that it an uphill walk back to the hotel from the MRT!). I guess the location did afford some rare peace and quiet. Amenities were tidy and everything was clean which was important for us. Beware the service fee and vat when dining at the in house restaurant but food was excellent do worth it overall. Loved the sweetly scented air con and kirsch!

First of all, you rarely find a mid-range hotel in SG for the price! BUT it is a bit out of the way. There isn't much going on around except for a park. My cab fare was about 25 SGD to the airport one way. The airport-hotel shuttles may take you here for a cheaper tab but it'd be a long ride. The nearest MRT station is about a 10 minute downhill walk away; and another 5-minute walk away is the bustling Chinatown district. That said, Hotel Re! itself is actually fairly decent. It is located next to a nice and relatively quiet woody park, good for a morning stroll or jog. My room was on the small side but functional. The interior decor was of course retro and funky and fun with one (or two?) Marilyn-Monroe-ish silhouette by the headboard. The bed was large and comfy, which occupies possibly 70% of the space if the whole living/sleeping area. The bathroom was of OK size given the size of the overall room but the tub was very small - probably only large enough for a sit-down bath. Overall, the amenities were rather minimal but adequate. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful with wee-hour check-in, insanely early morning check-out, helping with luggage and calling for cab services. They also gave good advice as of where and what to explore nearby. No problem at all. Again, the most attractive point is the price.

I stayed at Hotel Re! for 5 nights on a business trip to Singapore. My company put me up there so I had no choice in the hotel. To be honest, I probably would not have picked this one myself (the modern retro decor is somewhat off putting) but having stayed there, I can honestly say it is a good hotel and I cannot fault it.

My room was on Level 10. The bed was big and comfortable, free wifi in the room and I love that the mini bar items are complimentary instead of being charged at exorbitant prices like so many other hotels do. The bathroom was not as spotlessly clean as I would like but no problems, the shower had fantastic water pressure and plenty of hot water.

Staff at the front desk were helpful and efficient in handling check in/out and calling a taxi for me whenever I needed. Breakfast buffet is not the best but fine for a quick feed before heading to work, which is all I needed. I also ate in the hotel restaurant one night as I had a voucher - the service was not the best, the staff seemed quite disinterested, but the food was good. The wine bar on Level 2 is actually better I think - friendly staff and the same food as downstairs but with some fresh outdoor air too.

The closest MRT station is Outram Park which is about 20 minutes walk down a hill from the hotel. I chose to take taxis instead as they are inexpensive and I didn't fancy walking in the Singapore heat in high heels! A taxi to Marina Bay Sands area takes only 10 minutes, the airport only 20-25 minutes.

I would have preferred some local eateries a bit closer by so I didn't have to eat in the hotel restaurant (not the best atmosphere) but as I said, everything in the Singapore CBD is only a short taxi ride away.

Overall, I would say Hotel Re! is definitely good value and worth a try if you don't mind neon colours everywhere!
