          Very noisy room ”
          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.

          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.

          Improvement needed”
          The room was spacious and I got upgraded to a serviced apartment, but the overall experience was disappointing because of the below reasons: - There are not enough lifts and the lifts are AWFULLY SLOW. It took nearly 10 minutes to get a lift to the 18th floor as one of the lifts does not even go to that level. The lifts are also small so some people waited for a long time and then ended up not even fitting in the lift. - There was no warm water in the room. Though the room was clean, I unfortunately did not have any warm/hot water and ended up taking a cold shower. - The vending machines are a nice way to optimize facilities but room service would be nice. - The front desk staff was quite expressionless during check-in and especially during check-out. The lady on the desk was not even keen to know anything about my experience.

The hotel was very kind & understanding because they agreed to my daughter’s special request to check in 2 hours earlier. The staff of the above Cafe especially Mr. Zam, were very nice & courteous to serve us throughout the engagement ceremony. The hotel room is very spacious & my daughter had a great time & even though it’s a 1-night stay.

          Excellent Location, Large Room @ Affordable Rate”
          This is our 3rd time staying at this hotel due to its location, room size and most of important of all - it doesn't hurt your pocket - the best rate in entire (maybe) Singapore. Check-in was quick - thanks to the efficient and friendly stuff. I would like to specifically mention Mr. Joe Wong (duty manager) for his generosity in offering an extra bed for us after knowing a misinformation on AGODA's website with regards to the number of pax allowed per room for deluxe twin type - Agoda's website states 4 pax, but factually, it allows only for 2 (Agoda - please amend your site to state accurate information as it may lead to a lot of inconveniences for families during check-ins). Other plus points are the free parking for those driving to Singapore and the SG15 Grab vouchers (complimentary by the hotel) came in very handy. Caution for tourists with small children, the pedestrian crossing lights at traffic junctions go green simultaneously with traffic lights for vehicles.

          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.

          Good hotel , only a little far from orchard!”
          Other than the location which is quite far from orchard, they're a pretty decent hotel. Upon check in they gave us a 25 dollar complimentary grab voucher, which is enough for 2 days return to the hotel. However, they should have given us at least 10 dollar a day to compliment with their location. Because if we add up the total cost of grab we have to pay in the end, we could have book another hotel a bit more expensive, but within walking distance only. Anyway their room is big, which is very decent considering their price, and a lot of vending machine in the lobby to compliment their location. Anyway we love our stay here, will definitely consider staying here again.

          I have been staying at RELC at this point for over 20 years, when passing through Singapore. It is my single favorite family or budget hotel in Singapore. It lacks the facilities of, say, the Shangri-La next door, but it is good value for the money, and a superior place as what I would consider a three to three and one-half star hotel.

          Early check-in chargeable at very high cost”
          We landed at Singapore at 5 am and needed a 6-hour early check-in. Their policy is that any early check-in (prior to 2 pm) will be charged as follows: - 0 to 6 hours: half-day rate; >6 hours: full day-rate. However, they will charge their published price rather than the Agoda price. We ended up paying for 6-hours almost as much as what we paid for 1 full night on Agoda. The advice if you need early check-in like in my case is to book both nights on Agoda, including the partial day.
