This was my second stay at the SRC - and I was again not disappointed. While the building itself and the design of the rooms may not be everybody's top favourite, it's no doubt an excellent choice if you are looking for a (very!) centrally located and affordable (by S'pore standards) place to stay for a few nights. Almost all of what I wrote in my previous review (posted 16th March 2011) still holds true - so I won't repeat myself here.
I'm happy to report that the less-than-optimal quality of the coffee at breakfast has been fixed. Guests can now get decent coffee from a self-service espresso machine.
My only dislike - charging for Internet access - still applies; I just don't think this is the thing to do for a modern hotel nowadays, and as before, it almost deserves a reduction of my rating to 4 stars. I knew that the free wireless@SG service was available in parts of the hotel and requested a room in this area. I was told that this could not be guaranteed, but on arrival I was happy to find that it worked out just nicely. Thanks!
I was surprised that some reviewers complain about the site of the rooms. Mine was a decently-sized room with plenty of space for myself and my laptop (room 318). Certainly not what I would call small!
Oh - and their bedlinen is really comfy and quite luxurious.
Next time I'm in Singapore, I'll definitely be back.
