“good place, good service and not too expensive”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

the hotel is very well located, so it's easy to discover the center of the city of singapore. we didn't use the metro or bus, we walked and it was very nice, not tiring at all because everything was near. we went to arab street for a 15minutes walk, to the many malls next to the hotel etc..
the hotel is classy, the room was nice, a little bit small.

Based upon a previous stay, I stayed again for three nights in early June 2014.

The Singapore Recreation Club is conveniently located across the street from the City Hall MRT station, Raffles Place Shopping Centre and the underground tunnel network.

Check-in/out is quick and efficient. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. There is even a luggage scale in reception.

The rooms are well appointed and are a reasonable size. Rooms are equipped with all of the usual creature comforts; flat screen TV, in-room safe (will accommodate a laptop and SLR camera with room to spare), wide range of toiletries, bathroom scales, in-room temperature controls, free WiFi.

Room rates are very affordable for Singapore and include breakfast. SRC does not add the usual 10% service charge to room rates, meals or drinks which is an added bonus to already reasonably priced rates. Breakfast is a mixture of hot and cold buffet items with a reasonable selection of hot items that are rotated daily.

On my previous stay I had a room at the back of the building which was extremely quiet. This time I had a room facing the street which at times was sometimes noisy from the heavy street traffic. Also, one night my next room neighbours were quite loud with two small children and it sounded like they were standing in my room. Both the traffic and neighbours settled down by midnight and I had a good nights sleep. I only mention this if you are an early to bed person.

Guests have the use of all of the SRC facilities, including the pool, gym, restaurants and bar. Guests who have late night flights can leave their bags with reception during the day and when they return can use the gym showers (for free) to freshen up before their flight.

The street in front of the SRC is one way, with traffic coming into the city. As such, most taxis passing the SRC are occupied so if you require a taxi I would suggest phoning for one (or have reception arrange one) as it could be some time waiting in front for an available passing taxi.

Overall, an enjoyable second stay and I would certainly stay here again. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are more quiet than rooms facing the street.

The location & relative price of this accommodation were excellent. The staff were extremely helpful, offering us access to showers after a long flight, many hours before our rooms were available for check in. Raffles City is just across the road with shops & eateries, as was the Town Hall MRT station, providing excellent access around the city. We were in a spacious room (315) overlooking the playing fields. Highly recommended for any stay in Singapore.

I don't have one bad thing to say about The Residence! The staff, the location, the cleanliness and did I say the location?, we're perfect. The Residence is so easy to get to by metro from the airport. The metro station (City Hall) is a 2 minute walk from the hotel (just make sure you look for Stamford Road, not Connaught, as this is where the entrance is). We walked to the Singapore Flyer, to the Merlion and many other attractions. The Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off bus stop is literally around the corner. Everyone who worked at The Residence was friendly and helpful, the bed super comfortable, and the breakfast good. I will definitely stay there again if I ever go back to Singapore.

Had a 3 nighter in Singa and always wanted to stay here to use the famous underground pool.
Well worth it, The pool was huge and perfect for getting some laps in and the large hot tub / jacuzzi with waterfall was very refreshing and relaxing.

The rooms well 311 was equipped with everything that one needs for a stay away, especilay if your a modern techno person as they had an excellent piece of kit for plugging in all of your gadgets, room was a bit on small side, but perfect if you spend most of your time out and about and only use the room for showering and sleeping.
Its good if your single or a couple, but not suitable for kids.

SRC is just across road from city hall MRT so very easy to get around.

My one complaint is the AC in room is rather lacking, we left a key in room all the time and left AC on.

Hotel is well worth the money and excellent if you like to use gyms and pool during your stay.

Room Tip: Just ask for a view over the Panag towards boat quay.

If you are not a Hotel snob, this is your 10* accommodation. We stayed in room 310, a double and single bed. Not a great deal of room left around the beds but I wasn't paying to stay in the room all day, it was somewhere clean and comfy to sleep. Some of the rooms have access from the rooms onto a wonderful terrace, this terrace is also accessed from doors at the end of the passage. The bathroom was, like many places rather tiny but neat and clean, I was extremely happy as it had a walk-in shower, rather than a shower over a tub. If steps are a problem for you, I would check if other rooms are step free as our room had two steps up to the door/bathroom.
This place is well situated for many places, diagonally across the road is Swissotel on Stamford, which leads into Raffles Shopping Centre, MRT and a lot more. Raffles Hotel is the next block on from the Swissotel. Suntec Shopping Centre one block away in the other direction, this is where you get the hop on hop off buses. Marina Shopping Centre is opposite. Singapore Flyer is another block or so further on.
I found staff to be friendly and helpful, the included breakfast was more than okay but not as extensive as other places, which for us having a person with coeliacs was difficult. We did however have a run in with a staff member at the bowling lane, a second time there and this person was not the least bit accommodating to my son who is an adult with Down Syndrome. He would not put the bumpers up for him, also as he is inclined to throw the ball we were told we were only having one game not the two as I wanted. This one person put a major downer to a wonderful stay at a great place.

Room Tip: I per advice on here I asked for a room at the back as it is apparently quieter, as we had no compla...

we' ve booked two rooms! one ok, the other was really really small. Room 308 !!!!!!! You should never accept this room. In fact you should avoid this hotel for treating the client like crap after paying a lot of money!!!!!!!!!
