The Residence At Singapore Recreation Club
Ranked #131 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 11 April 2014

stayed for 2 nights stopover. Shuttle busses are not allowed on these grounds, so you will have to get a taxi $38S. The taxi driver from the airport had never heard of this place. Finally got there, looks impressive from outside. Foyer is impressive, lots of marble. This is an old building, so go beyond the foyer and you can see its age, after all it is a rugby club.
The room was nice and roomy, very clean and comfortable. It overlooked the grounds. The shower has frosted glass walls, you cant exactly see through it, but it could be concerning if youre shy....lol
The poolside cafe is ordinary looking, functional, which is what you would expect in a rec club, BUT...... the meals are awesome. we were served almost immediately, and our food came very quickly and hot. the servings are huge and so cheap. there is a good variety of meals and drinks.
the breakfast was ordinary, but I think thats on par with most Asian countries.
City Hall mrt is 5 mins walk as is Raffles City shopping center. The MRT is extremely easy to use.
All in all we had a good stay. If you are not worried about having 5 star surroundings, this is a good choice at a reasonable price.

Room Tip: our room was 315 and was really quiet

Our stop-over on a 5 week holiday to Australia was in Singapore. The Residence was a decently-priced, unusual choice for accommodation at a 4-star level. The Residence is easy to find, a short walk from the subway. We imagined a colonial building, but in fact the Singapore Recreation Club is a post-modern 1980s building. The Residence is on the top floor. The building is more functional than stylish.
Rooms are of a pretty good standard, spacious (ours split-level). Everything you might expect for a hotel of this standard was there. There was a breakfast included served down in the bowels of the Club, next to the swimming pool. A reasonable selection of options were served, although the space was not very attractive. The Club has a clearly advertised dress code, which seemed to be observed throughout the club.
The one area where there could be distinct improvement. is in the lobby area of the Residence itself. When we arrived we thought "what sort of place is this?": the area was untidy, luggage was left around the place, and it felt more like an extension of a rather messy office than a welcoming area for a 4-star hotel. Some attention to this would make a real improvement.
But, on the whole, this was above average and provided us with a base to explore the city-state, catch up on jet-lag and to recover from the stifling humidity! Overall, recommended..

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Padang rather than the road. It's a spectacular view.

This is a great place to stay in Singapore. Lovely rooms, good service, staff helpful. Breakfast is included. Free wi fi. Over the road from The Raffles Centre so convenient for shopping, MRT, bus, near river, Marina Bay, Bugis etc. Have stayed a couple of times.

Room Tip: Room facing the Padang which is quieter

Loved mostly the old world charm of the hotel and tranquility of the place in a busy city. Nothing better than sitting on the balcony outside our bedroom with cold beer whilst listening to netball match/cricket practise/soccer match on the green below with stunning views of beautiful skyscrapers in the distance. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Perfect location for all sights and easy access to airport via City Hall. All wonderful and we would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Room at back with view of green

We enjoyed our stay at the hotel, walking distance from the Food Trail and Marina Bay, very near the City Hall MRT stop. 20 min walk to Orchard road. Very near the sightseeing bus office and other malls. Very convenient. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was abundant and great! The room was very clean and well equipped, the beds were comfortable, the bathroom was modern and clean too. The room was smaller than we expected for this price range and there was no view.... but we only needed the room to sleep in.

By chance we booked in at The Residence At Singapore Recreation Club
& found it to be a total delight. Had no idea as to just where we were to be as it was our 1st time in Singapore & found it SO CONVENIENT to all attactions & transport..

The staff we found to be very helpful as to answer any of our quiries. The rooms were well desighed enough for our needs, loved the glass wall in the showers as we had just renovated our one at home, wished we saw that design before we did our's..

The building itself was charming & in keeping with the colonial design that Singapore has retained was lovely..
We guess that it was hard to fault & would HIGHLY recommend to fellow travellers as it was not over priced at the time that we went.

Room Tip: Select room 318 one at the back overlooking the parkland playing fields. lovely outlook
