It is being claimed a it is a 4 star property. I booked through booking.com and I repented my decision. Rooms were old, looks like not serviced for many days. Uncomfortable shower, literally no choice for food makes it worse. Although rooms are of good size which is a rarity in Singapore.

Was here recently. Room was large & spacious. Clean Bedheet & Breakfast palatable. Was a mere walking distance to our wedding function at Shangri-La. Shoppin was also nearby Singapore which is known for their cleanliness, I managed to pick up a few Spore Dollars along the path walking towards the shopping mall. How I wish I can find Spore streets paved with Spore Dollars !

Won't suggest this hotel if you want to relax and spend more time in the hotel/room.
Room is big; feel more like a studio apartment without any pantry.
We got 3 single beds and still more space for the kids to play.
Thin carpet and pillows. Cheap bedsheets. Dusty (found an empty snack wrapper beside the bed)
Toilet's big but the floor's slippery.

Difficult to find any taxi during rush hour (there were people already waited for 45 minutes and no 1 taxi at all).
We walked to find a transportation; choose either uphill or downhill.

If you really need to safe money for a room that can fit a lot of people, this hotel's not bad.
If you look for more than saving money, choose other hotel.

Large rooms is definetly a plus at this Hotel. It is a part of learning centre hence do not expect ambience like in a real hospitality centre, however if your intention is to use it as sleepover(which generally may be the case considering the vast sightseeing possibilities in Singapore) then an apt choice, considering the location off Orchard Road(10 min walk). Breakfast is just manageable(limited choice offered), moreover if you go at peak time 7:30-9:30am you may struggle to get a table for the family.
Please check with reception for your sightseeing programm, may get really helpful tips e.g. going to Sentosa travel free by walking to the neighbouring Sheraton Hotel, where a airconditioned bus arrives every half hour on the way to Sentosa(no stops). You need to show the room key as your pass. Same for return trip to Hotel

Not a bad option as rooms r big In size which is only plus point , location was nice but a little too far from main orchard road, walk was tedious. Staff was good , rooms were clean , but some one can have better option in the offered rate , hotel did not bother to arrange for vegetarian breakfast in spite of request even though we were in group of 9 people occupying 4 rooms for 7 nites ,

I really liked the spaciousness of the room. My daughter had a huge space to run/play around without having to go thru obstacles like luggage on floor, wall-bed distance, etc. I also liked the helpful staff.

I didn't like the location so much because it wasn't very accessible to main road and MRT. 15mins walk to Orchard is tiring when you have prievious experience of a 5min walk to MRT from other hotels in SG. I also find it strange that housekeeping had limited time, so our room wasn't cleaned/dressed up everyday. They didn't have 24hour food/room service, so it was quite challenging to get food late at night. There was a mini cafe and convenience store at the lobby but they close at 9pm.

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 ...

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor for a good panoramic view of Singapore
