Reviewed 29 July 2012

It was a very small room, good for you who wants to stay just one night. The pillow was amazing, it was square shaped and very hard and uncomfortable at all. We stayed here just for a night. The location was good though, walking distance to Seven Eleven and the MRT. You can find many food kiosk around it (go out through the back door). They gave water bottles and coffee. You can ask for more since this hotel also can be rent per-hour, yeah it meant to be for IT.

Room Tip: there is no good room, unless you are old men bringing young woman, everything would be good

Room is small but clean, it was OK to me at this price.

The front desk offered me a free bottle of water on arrival but no more bottle after that even I paid same price as the first date.

Stayed here for a couple of nights....... no real complaints other than a rather unpleasant smell.
You get what you pay for: not much.

This hotel is for the budget traveler and you should not expect anything above the average. The room was a bit dated with a few marks on the wall, but the bed was comfy and it had aircon, tv and a fridge which were all fine. The bathroom was functional and fine.
Its located on the metro which is handy and its on Sims avenue which has an interesting local nightlife.
All in all, its basic but (for Singapore) reasonably priced. If you are on a budget you may as well give it a go.

If you are looking for simple and inexpensive accommodation in Singapore, the Hotel Regin is a good option. The standard rooms are clean but very small so they are probably only OK for a solo traveler. And unless you plan to spend a lot of time in your room, the small size isn't a big deal.

The hotel is a couple of long blocks from the Kallang SMRT station. A fairly easy walk and once on the SMRT, you can get to just about anywhere in Singapore.

I was told that the Geylang section of the city is the "red light" district, but the Hotel Regin is on the edge of Geylang and I didn't notice anything "red light" around the hotel.

Made last minute booking by phone, staff was so helpful. Me and my family moved from a horrible hostel to this hotel, and we found it quite suitable for resting. Singapore hotels are so damn expensive compared to other countries, and this one was reasonable enough (eventhough you could get a 5Star standard hotel in China with same amount of money, haha).

What they need to improve is the stacking of cleaning trolleys all over the 4th floor, but other than that, I would recommend people to stay here.

I booked in here through Agoda as I didn't like when I stayed at Lucky (mouldy, musty smell and plastic mattress and sheets with holes in them). Expected much the same, but was very surprised.

I was only staying for a 23 hour layover before returning to Australia and didn't want to hang at the budget terminal that long, so came into Regin Hotel.

The taxi driver found it a bit hard to find - his GPS took us to 250 Sims Avenue instead of 56. Maybe if you tell the driver it is near the corner of Sims Way and Sims Avenue you might get here quicker.

Once inside I was warmly welcome by a very friendly elderly Chinese gentleman, whose name escapes me. Very obliging.

The only shock was when he asked for a $S50 deposit in cash, as I had not been aware of this. I looked in my wallet but after the taxi fare had only around $40 so he said $20 was fine, and this was returned to me in the morning immediately upon checkout, where once again I was greeted by the reception staff in a warm and friendly manner.

The room itself was small and it is an older style hotel, but there was no bad smells in the room, and there was no mould in the bathroom. Shower didn't get really hot, but was passable. Like many Singapore rooms there is no curtain in the shower, so the whole bathroom gets wet - toilet, sink, bathroom floor etc, but not really a drama.

Bed was very comfortable. Got two free small bottles of water on arrival and 2 small toothbrush and paste sets. Aircon worked very well.

Tv has a wide variety of channels, even if few in English.

Small mini fridge in wardrobe to keep the water cold.

This is dearer than Hotel 81 Lucky, but if you want accommodation at the budget end of the scale this is certainly one I would recommend

Room Tip: i asked for one on a higher floor - road outside isnt too noisy, but there are the odd motorbikes go...
