RELC International Hotel Singapore Reviews
I thought it was a little pricey... Jul 02, 2011
Ok... spent only one night and it is situated in the city though I"m not quite sure how accessible it is by the metro and bus service as I drove there. It was the only affordable place I could get (for a hotel- as I was on a business trip). But it's basic. I guess good enough for a one night stay I guess and if you're not looking for luxury.
So where do I start? Well, there was parking.. I guess there weren't fully booked. Rooms are clean and big but it's basic. Very very basic. TV, and free wifi, so that's a plus. Balcony is HUGE! and the view is well, of a very nice apartment across the street.
The bathroom was also big.. and I loved the shower but I stress again.. It's BASIC. But to me.. cleanliness is important. I can tell that it was a rather old place but very well maintained.
