The rooms are really small, and really colourful. The services from the staffs are good and breakfast is quite okay. WiFi is very good!

But the location is not too friendly and would to see more shuttle bus services

Rooms are clean and quiet environment, very nice fragrance when you stepped into the hotel. 5 minutes walk to Outram MRT or every 20 minutes free shuttle service. Staff are friendly. Tried 1 breakfast, was average, just like any other 3 stars hotel. Will check out the wine bar and the pool in the next visit.
Got a queen size bed, slept very well.
In Singapore, a night stay at SGD120++ , I must say its not bad- cannot complain.

Happily, this hotel is on the better end of the price verses value equation... this is important as Singapore is not a cheap place to stay when it comes to hotels. Easy to get here from the airport on the MRT. The hotel is a short walk from Outram Park station bordering the Pearl's Hill Park. Save your cash as taxis are also quite expensive in Singapore.

Staff are efficient, professional and courteous at all times. Check-in was smooth but I was initially disappointed that the room on the 6th floor stank of smoke, despite being an entirely smoke free property. I was quickly changed to a higher floor (12) and this was much better. Rooms are relatively clean and quiet on the park side. I can't imagine this is so on the expressway side as it is, well, an expressway!

I wish I could say my fellow guests were quiet but that was not the case... come on guys, calling out to each other down the hall and banging on doors at midnight? You can't tell me this is acceptable practice back home in Italy! Aside from this it is an inexpensive place to stay and with a bit of bussing and walking, most places are reachable on this small island.

Restaurant was clean and surprisingly good selection of local and international cuisine. Expensive by local standards but offset by the discount coupons issues upon check-in. Better value fare is available nearby in Chinatown or any nearby food co-op/market.

Linen and towels are new and clean. Soap, shampoo and toothbrushes were all present and accounted for. The complimentary snacks included Pepsi, crisps and nuts. One thing I would change is the air-conditioning... it was positively Arctic in there and for the life of me, I couldn't find a thermostat anywhere in the room to turn it down! I ended up getting out of bed in the middle of the nigh and pulling the room key card out of the socket to turn it off.

A bit isolated but not bad for that. I would return with little hesitation if I needed to.

Room Tip: Park side, not expressway side!

Singapore is expensive for hotels and Hotel Re provides a clean hotel room for a decent price. The room is small but that's Singapore. The downside is that you do need to walk 10 - 15 minutes to the MRT station. Bear in mind that Singapore is hot and humid with occational tundershowers, so be warned that you may get sweaty and wet to and from the hotel. There is a shutlte minibus from the hotel to the MRT station but it's only 1 way so you will still have to walk back if you are taking the MRT. Getting a getting a taxi from the hotel is a problem as its located on a hill off the main road.

I stumbled upon this gem while searching for a hotel for my girlfriend to stay in during the F1 race.
The hotel is situated centrally, about 8 min walk from Outram Park MRT, but it's an upslope walk. Apparently there are shuttle bus services to and fro the hotel, which I didn't know of. Parking is extremely convenient.

I had a free upgrade to a deluxe room on the 3rd floor, which unfortunately, was situated just beside the generator, which can be a tad noisy, so I opted for a normal room on the 7th floor instead. Though it was facing the expressway, the noisy could barely be heard in the evening & nights. I think it could be noisier at the lower floors thought.
The room was pretty small but well stocked with amenities & a huge (2m?) bed. The deco and theme is extremely unique.
Staff were extremely friendly and polite.

There was a strong fragrance at the lobby & I found it too strong for my liking. They should consider those who may not like strong fragrances.

I guess the only bad thing about the hotel is the

It was decent stay at the most. Only 2 days. Sales was going on and each one was completely booked. Good deals, cheap prices, taxi service. There was a wedding going on too. Staff was friendly. The rooms, on the other hand, were pretty much the same size. Except for the corner rooms. I believe those were the deluxe rooms. The view was blocked by trees but thats the most you could get out of.
