          Good family budget hotel.”

          I pass through Singapore 5-7 times a year. I usually stay here, so am a repeat customer. This is a solid three star hotel. Only downside is the not very good breakfast, so I would suggest for that going to Starbucks or McDonalds 200 meters away on Orchard Road.

          Terrible mattress. Terrible backache. Took a few visits to physio and the doctor's afterwards”

          Spacious room. Terrible mattress. Backache started the second day and got progressively worse in the next 2 days. It's not just me suffering from the terrible mattress. Other attendees of the conference said the same. I knew at least one attendee changed her flight ticket so that she could go home early and had a proper sleep. So you know the seriousness of the problem. I went to the physio and the doctor's several times to fix this. I won't come back to RELC International again however cheap the room is cos a good night's sleep is key especially to a business traveler.

          good family hotel, great location”

          I pass through Singapore regularly as an academic, and RELC is by far my favorite hotel. It does not have the fancy five star infrastructure, but you can walk next door to the Shangrila if need be. Families should appreciate the laundromat at RELC. My only criticism is the breakfast. You are better off just booking the room and walking 200 meters to Orchard Road to find just around the corner the Starbucks or McDonalds for an egg mcmuffin breakfast.

          The hotel free upgrade my standard room to deluxe room without any charge. The room is big with a balcony. The room is newly renovated, still have the remaining volatile smell. The toilet is clean. It is equipped with a rain fall shower head. The disadvantage of this hotel is location is not near MRT, restaurant, nor any other shop. However Grab is easily accessible from hotel.

          Location is a bit far from Orchard Road but arranging transport by Grab is not hard. The cost is far better than all hotels in Orchard Road. The extra cost in getting a cab is way lower than the cost of others in Orchard Road. Hotel is clean and quiet. All hotel facilities are excellent.

          Value for money in location around Orchard. But you need to walk 12 minutes to Orchard Towers. Anyway it is still okay for 4 persons to take taxi or Grab or Gocar to reach most attraction sites.

          the hotel shared the building with a language school so the elevator is always full/occupied. there is no facilities in the room but the room itself is big. furniture is old and I can see small tiny bugs on the desk location is really .... not convenient let s just say if you are a backpacker and looking for a budget hotel or share room with your classmates, it is a good choice as probably you can share the room with 6 ppl, if they are fine sleeping on the floor

          This hotel could be so much better. It is well located and there are large airy rooms. But, the rooms are very noisy, the air conditioners are old and make a lot of noise. Mine kept banging throughout the night. If it wants to attract business travellers, it needs to feel less like student housing.

          in Singapore with family, good for those on a budget”

          I am an academic working a lot in SE Asia, so I pass through Singapore often. I usually stay at RELC, which is actually a hotel married with an English language teaching facility (RELC stands for Regional English Language Center, so you meet lots of SE Asian adolescents doing courses in the elevator). It has a laudromat, but otherwise its facilities are limited. However, it is located next door to the Shangri-La, if you need to meet someone in upscale surroundings. RELC is a budget family hotel for Singapore purposes, and Singapore is an expensive city generally. The only downside in my mind is the rather mediocre breakfast, so I always book a room only and then walk a couple hundred meters to Starbucks or McDonalds on the upper end of Orchard Road to catch breakfast there.
