“Ok for a short stay if at a cheap price”
Reviewed 17 June 2012

Stayed 4 nights, staff were good, room was clean & a good size but in need of a pick me up. Good location, only 2 min walk to city hall metro stop and the large mall above it. Breakfast was average and agree the chlorine smell from the pool next to breakfast room is overpowering. Free wifi worked well in the room. The residence is what you would typically expect from a place run by "old school sporting men". Would I stay again?....most likely not.

I have stayed at The Residence a couple of times previously, as well as other hotels in Singapore at different times over the last few years, and am pleased that this small hotel has kept up its high standard. Staff are efficient and friendly, rooms are clean and beds extremely comfortable. A free newspaper, bathroom products and complimentary bottles of water were all much appreciated. On this instance we had a room opening on to the terrace overlooking the Padang. The terrace is shared but is quite large with outdoor furniture for relaxing.
The free breakfast in the basement cafe is quite adequate with eggs cooked to order if desired. On this visit I was also pleased to see that the WiFi works very well in the bedrooms but there is a computer adjacent to the reception if you don't have your own. Their restaurants offer good food and the Barker Lounge is a good spot for a late night drink or snack at reasonable prices.

Location is very good within easy walking distance of restaurants, shopping and transport. We have also very much appreciated being able to leave our luggage at check out time to collect later and freshen up with a shower in their gym facilities. We also continued to use the bar lounge for a drink and light meal while waiting for a late flight - much more comfortable than waiting at the airport.
The only downside is that this hotel only has 23 rooms and is popular so you have to book early. However, having said that each time we have stayed I have been able to obtain the booking on one of the discount sites at a reduced rate for the dates I wanted.
Overall, very good value for the money.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Padang view as they are quieter

Great location to the downtown core but I can't say there was anything that stood out for me with the SRC. The room was large, the bed was comfortable and the hotel staff were pleasant. The breakfast was quite good but was somewhat dampened by the whiff of chlorine from the indoor swimming pool. The price I paid and the amount of time I spent in to the hotel (less than 12 hours) - sure, i'd recommend this place. Anything longer - I'd probably look for another hotel.

We stayed here in transit to Australia. This is a great place to stay - as a guest one is treated like a member of the SRC - attentive and very personalised service from all the Club staff. Good restaurant, with an excellent maitre'd and super food as a bonus in the package! Forget the rest of the local hotels - just stay here.

I enjoyed two great nights at this hotel in mid April. As is the case with most hotels in Singapore it is only about 20 mins from the airport and pretty much right downtown. My room was right beside reception and had a magnificent view down the Padang with the cities tallest buildings beyond. The room was very spacious with a large comfortable bed and an equally large bathroom. All the amenities were great. The only issue I had was with the power; when turning off the tv you need to be careful as it also knocked off the power to anything else plugged in to the power points beside it if you used the bedside switch. I thought initially my iron had died so called for a replacement which also seemed to have failed. It was pointed out to me by the maintenance guy to take care when turning the tv on and off. Strange. Another guest was caught out by the hot water heater isolation switch being amongst the light switches when you walk into the room. Make sure you turn off the right ones there or a cold shower will greet you the next morning.
The staff were very friendly with free internet at a desk beside reception. The restaurant is located in the basement area beside the gym and pool with a good selection of cereals, fruit, yoghurts and cooked options for breakfast. I had a late flight out of Singapore and was able to leave my bags after check out and have a shower in the gym changing rooms before heading out to the airport which is always great.
The location is exceptional with the City Hall MRT station just two minutes away beside Raffles City shopping centre from where you can easily get to anywhere on the island. Alternatively, the waterfront with the Merlion etc is a mere five to ten minutes away by foot.
All in all a great place to stay!

Nice staff, traditional old building with nice features, great swimming pool, gym etc.

Be warned you are expected to wear long trousers and a polo shirt as a minimum in the common areas. It's quite a smart place!

Room Tip: We were upgraded but given two singles instead of a double. Make sure you get a double the first ti...

On our recent visit to Singapore, which was also our first time staying in Singapore, we chose to stay at The Residence because it looked like it was in a good central position. This turned out to be exactly the case. We arrived from the airport by train and found our accommodation just across the road. We walked to many of the places we wanted to see and the train was an easy option for those places a little further away. The staff at The Residence were all friendly and helpful and the other facilities at the club made for a really enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay here again on any future trips.
