I stayed at the RELC (Regional English Language Centre) Hotel recently, after a five year absence. Although originally established mainly to accomodate course participants and conference delegates, RELC has, over the years, become a favourite hotel for the budget conscious traveller to Singapore who does not want to be on the main, busy hotel strip.

RELC might has been known as a meeting venue, rather than a hotel. I thought so when I came there for the first time. But despite of that, this hotel was not really bad at all.

The Regional Cafe was manned by senior waitresses who had to double up as service waitresses as well as cashiers. Not sure if they had too much to do.

For the price paid (not cheap) I expected more. The room was ok, but the beds were single size, the balcony was taken over by the air conditioning unit so no balcony. Breakfast nothing special and hard to go anywhere without taxi.

The room is spacious and somewhat clean, the staff is very pleasant. However the food (breakfast) is not very tasty. The hotel is not very far away from Orchard Road, Singapore's shopping center (about 10 minutes walk), so that's a plus.
