Generous rooms with super comfy bed. Well appointed shower room & the toiletries provided exceeded those you would expect for this standard of hotel. Good standard of daily housekeeping ensured that everything used was replenished as with the in room hospitality tray. Helpful & friendly staff throughout. RC is very well placed right on the river front where you can...

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights and we loved every single bit of it. The room was extremely clean, service staff were very polite, helpful and absolutely friendly - special thanks to May and the other gentlemen at the reception who made our short holiday so wonderful. Your sincere customer service is what makes you stand out...

New-ish (2014) hotel apparently designed more by a Committee than by a hotel professional. Charming, warm and genuinely nice welcome and service. Rooms of a decent size and spotlessly clean. All amenities. Then it gets weird. A notice in the room shows charges for each and every amenity including the soap and the coffee (fortunately not applied at checkout). The...

beautiful hotel in an excellent location. We had the executive suite which was spacious, luxurious, comfortable. One of the best rooms we've ever stayed in. We didn't want to leave the room, and I think we only paid around $125 CAD at the last minute. We're a young couple and had a very romantic stay. Big spacious bathroom and rain...

The room is very spacious. However, the lock of the door is slightly faulty. I need to find the catch in order to lock it properly. Not sure whether other rooms have the same issue cos I heard some loud bangings of doors at night. Location is excellent, being only a few mins walk from Jonker area. Not all rooms...

Very nice rooms, clean, great shower, coffe-machine in the room. Difficult AC. It blowed towards one of the beds, so during the night one of use were cold and the other real hot. It's nice with view towards the river, but the hotels restaurant is also outside there and they are playing loud music from 8 am-11 pm. Remember earplugs...

Thanks to Mr. Rahim, receptionist and all the staff for giving us a 5 star hotel standard service and wonderful experience in RC Hotel during NEW YEAR 2017. Thumbs up to Mr. Seow Swee Cheng (CEO).

It's a nice stay in RC Hotel. Location is within walking distance around 5-10 minutes to Jonker area. Very convenient. The front desk is very helpful and accommodating. Room is nice. The downsides are some of the rooms have unpleasant smell. They put an aromatherapy in the room to counter this issue. It helps for a while but the smell...

This hotel is comfortable and well-equipped. The breakfast is sufficient with a good enough variety. The room also has a small balcony, either overlooking the street or the river. The room is reasonably spacious too, and has wide and comfortable beds. However, the lift may malfunction so be prepared to take the stairs.
