This hotel is within a well-know regional language center, and it attracts groups and families of various age groups. Having previously been a long-term resident, I knew of this hotel but had never visited or stayed there ..so here was my opportunity to do so.
As a very frequent traveller with over 200 hotel nights/year ..you quickly get the gist of any hotel. The location of the RELC is slightly off Orchard Rd, yes you need to walk about 1km but its a nice residential street. The Front Desk was efficient and spotless. My room was large, in fact the overall layout of the hotel is very generous; furnishings were comfortable and cosy.
I have 2 grouches: The WiFi connection was quite erratic if not annoying.
Watch out using the bathroom - modern features yes, but the floor tiles are very slippery when wet; there is also a threshold when entering the bathroom ..quite unusual for a hotel ..and i tripped a few times at first ..then i discovered that the architect had stupidly raised the bathroom floor level above the main room level ..not acceptable for the older age groups.
I payed S$ 190 per night (via booking .com) , that is the same price as for the Traders Hotel which has far better amenities and a better location ...
