We stayed for 8 nights at the Re, having read previous reviews on this site - arrived at 08.30 after an overnight flight (check in 15.00) and room allocated immediately. We would agree that the rooms are small, but they are clean and the housekeeping was good. The advertised L'Occitaine toiletries disappeared after day 6, so don't know what is happening there.
The hotel is out of the way, but we had no difficulty in walking to the MRT 10 minutes away, or even to Chinatown or Clarke Quay, only a leisurely stroll of 15 minutes or so, but not recommended for those that suffer in the heat and humidity.
Our concerns centre strongly on the catering. When ordering food in the resteraunt, it seemed common practice for meals to arrive at different times - we witnessed one couple where the main course was served for the man but the lady's main course only arrived as the dessert arrived for the man. Serving one of a party with unacceptable gaps before the rest of a party was served continued to be common practice.
We were offered, and accepted, an upgrade to the ReFine dining area where special breakfasts, afternoon teas and Cocktail nibbles were provided - do not take this up, the hotel is just not geared up to deliver on their promise, and we had to complain on occasions when no food was prepared for our arrival, and it was common practice to suggest that we fetch our own food from the restaraunt across the lobby.
Overall, probably good value for money in Singapore, but I would beware the delivery on the food/restaraunt side.
