“Old Hotel that lose its charm”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Hotel was located on the top of Pearl's Hill. It is not so accessible if you do not drive. It is quite a walk to the nearest Outram MRT station. However, you could used the free shuttle bus service provided. There is a park beside the hotel. If you enjoy nature, it would be a nice walk in the morning or evening for the fresh air as it is away from the traffic.
Hotel room was decently big for the price. However, the room was not well maintained. There was a hole in the wall where I stayed. Did not kick up a big fuss as I only stayed for a night. Other than that, there is nothing to comment or shout about. Room was clean enough and the bed is alright to sleep in.There was no odd smell too.

Stayed there on 16.04.2014 as gotten quite a good deal (S $120) for a boutique hotel in Singapore, hoping to spend quality time. Lobby was kinda huge w 1 staff working @ reception & cafe there looked kinda pathetic as was very quiet. No cakes were being sold there so if wanna get a cake as dessert then can forget it yah. Checking in was kinda slow despite we were the only guests but could tell staff was trying hard. Surprisingly, we signed up for Re! membership too after convinced by staff for S$50 annually :)

Opened the door, stepped into room 702 & we were awed by the size of the room - deluxe room & yet small! If you have big luggage or few luggages then this is not the right room! Limited walking space too but quite a good view. Bed was soft & kinda sunken in but aircon was good! Bathroom was equally small, allowing only 1 to shower. Tiles were broken & so was the shower head too :(

We drove so location was ok for us. The tranquillity kinda impressed us as we wanted some quiet moments :)

We didn't have breakfast there as wasn't quite worth it for S$21++ w limited choicesso took ours at a nearby hawker market. If to take slow walk, is walkable :)

Overall, would rate 7/10 & maybe would return again. Cheers!

I stayed there 5 days in April 2014 at a rate of 81 € (approx. USD 112) a night (taxes and service included, no breakfast), which seems quite cheap for 4* in Singapore. I did not try breakfast or other meals so I can't comment on that. Personal is friendly, rooms clean (as long as you don't look too much into detail.).
500m from Outram MRT. Free shuttle service to MRT station, not available on Sundays.
A little bit away from the important things to see in Singapore but with the MRT in short distance I could accept that easily. Located directly at a small park where you can do some sports.
I like the music of the seventies and eighties which is played in the entry hall.
Free public Wifi, that sometimes is fine and sometimes does not work at all. "Public" means "no password needed", which means "open for everybody" which means that I can't really work, because I don't want to enter any passwords or credit card data in a public internet access. But just to surf a little in the internet it is fine.
Overall: Not perfect, but absolute okay. Regarding the price which is FAR below the hotels in the fancy areas of Singapore, I can say "Good value for money." That's why I rate it 5*.
Would not hesitate to stay there again.

Our experience at Hotel Re was on the whole a positive one. Our room was park facing on the 7th floor within the yellow section (Bruce Lee silhouette). The room was clean (all spotless except the mould in the mini fridge) and stocked with everything we would expect from an Asian hotel: full set toiletries, ample amount of towels, slippers, safe, bottled water, tea coffee and cutlery. The bed and pillows were very comfortable (on the soft side) and the water pressure on the shower was reasonably strong.

We would however warn travellers that the uphill walk from Outram station to the hotel is a difficult one; even for us who are regular gym-goers. What made it difficult wasn't so much the steepness, the distance, or the stairs; but was the heat and humidity. Travellers who suffer from asthma or other related physical conditions should consider this before choosing this hotel. N.B The hotel shuttle runs only one way from the hotel to Outram; so you're on your own when it comes to getting there. There are ample signage to direct you from exit B from Outram station so finding your way is not hard... But it's the actual walking part with luggage and everything.

On the whole the hotel is comfortable, value for money and in a great location in the city.

The Re represents very good value for Singapore. The rooms are clean, very comfortable and well-appointed with nice amenities. Go there by taxi or use their shuttle bus to the MRT. It is a hike up the hill to get to it despite what others say. The restaurant however needs improvement, no a la carte western breakfast available and a simple plate of dim sum took 25 minutes to arrive and we were the only ones there !

Stayed here for 5 nights after a cruise. Hotel staff very friendly, check in was easy. Arrived at 9.30am and our booked queen room was unavailable so our first night was in a single bed double room. Next day moved to queen, easily accomplished. Restaurant was good value and great food.
shuttle to and from the MTR was a bonus though the walk uphill was not too arduous. Signage from the station very clear and easy to follow. Will definately stay here again and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Stayed for 2 nights, staff were friendly. Rooms okay but could use sprucing up a bit.
The "gym" is a room the size of a cupboard with a treadmill and a useless weights contraption.
Good location as is walking distance to MRT.
Reasonable value for Singapore.
