“Fantastic Boutique Hotel In Busy Singapore”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

Stayed for a series of meetings in nearby SGH complex. Hotel booked by the organizers.

First impression is that it is a new boutique hotel with modern design.

Having walked from the nearest train station (Outram Park), I must admit that it did not leave a very good first impression as ramps were not available for me to pull my trolley bag up and had to carry it up the steps. First and last bad experience with the hotel.

Was greeted by Criselda who (very, very) cheerfully assisted me through my quick check in. Found my room ready, cool and waiting in less than 5 minutes after approaching the front desk. Daily variety of free items in the minibar (Coke, Coke Light, Juice and bottled water), high speed internet, continental breakfast, coffee and tea making facilities and a very efficient housekeeping staff. Toiletries were top notch and the rooms were of adequate size (at least 208 where I stayed). Very close to eating areas and the rooftop bar (Halo) had a good variety of drinks and canapés to munch on. One comment on the design of the hotel, though is the strange fact that there are rooms where the shower is walled with a full length glass window overlooking the street. Was crossing and admiring the architecture of the building when I saw that one can actually see people taking a shower in full view of the street! Perhaps some shade or frosting??? I'm glad I was not billeted in THAT room.

While the facilities of the hotel were great, what made the experience fantastic was the staff. From the front desk to Nectar to the bellhops to the Halo staff - they made the experience quite memorable. Kudos to management and staff for running such a tightly run and cheerful ship. I will definitely consider staying here during my trips to Singapore.

Room Tip: 208 - good room, facing Link Hotel. Disabled-friendly and huge shower with frosted windows (at least...

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking time to write this review.

We regret your less than favourable arrival experience but are enouraged that you appreciate our service and facilities. Due to certain limitations, the hotel drop-off point is in the basement carpark with direct access to the main lobby through a passenger lift. Guests arriving by foot may also enter the basement via a gentle slope from the road level. In fact, we are currently looking into directional signs to improve wayfinding.

To clarify, all full length glass windows in bathrooms are fitted with shades which may be drawn down while showering. Thus, natural light or privacy may be enjoyed according to guest’s preference.

Once again, we appreciate your comments and hope to see you again when your travels bring you back to our island. Please take care.

We stayed at the Wangz Hotel for two nights and could not fault the service, the location and the room. Very friendly and couldnt do enough for you to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible. Very close to all the shopping areas, with a courtesy bus driven by very polite staff.

Here's a question (several in reality)....why stay in a (probably dated) multi-level Singaporean hotel when for the same price (or less) you can stay in a 41-room boutique hotel that is just over two years old, well-positioned, staffed by genuinely supper friendly and helpful staff, beautifully (and thoughtfully) furnished totally modern rooms, adorned by fantastic art commissioned by the owner, that leaves you feeling like you are at home and is insulated from Singapore's bustle (when you want to be), has high-speed free wifi, great complimentary breakfasts, a complimentary shuttle service, and complimentary (non alcholic) drinks from the in-room mini-bar? Exactly. The Wangz is it. Email me (grant@awesomeservice.co.nz) if you stay there on my recommendation and have cause to disagree.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are great (I saw them all).

* Small boutique hotel
* Great staff - very friendly and genuinely welcoming. On arrival, staff great you, take you to the checkin desk, your bags simultaneously appear in your room. Checkin is fast and smooth, as is check out.
* Fantastic food - room service is quick and good quality. Although the complete menu is not always available, the chef is happy to custom make most requests (including children's meals). Breakfast is included and is good value with ample variety. Roof top bar is quiet and family friendly, with a good view of the city. Other casual dining food options within 100m walk of the hotel.
* Convenient shuttle service - to specific points in the city. Is very good if wanting to go to tourist areas.
* Room size reasonable for Singapore- we stayed in the deluxe room, and baby cot (incl sheets and blanket) was provided. Enough room (but wouldn't want to be in a smaller room with baby - would be squishy).
* Would certainly stay here again.

The Wangz Hotel is a beautiful little boutique hotel, ideal if you are in transit in Singapore for just a night or two. My wife and I stayed there en route to Cambodia. The flight had us arriving into Singapore at just after midnight, and then flying out at 9:30pm that night.

So we booked in at the Wangz, and by the time we checked in at about 1:30am we were exhausted. But the night staff made us feel immediately welcome, and the room was beautiful. Quiet, great firm bed, all modern.

The big advantage of the Wangz is that it's relatively close to the airport, so you can get in and out quickly - and it's much cheaper than staying at the Crowne Plaza. Also, the staff are terrific, and make you feel immediately welcome.

It's also very close to Chinatown, a short walk, and you're right in the middle of it! I'd recommend, if you want something away from the bustle of Orchard Rd.

This is a new small hotel very close to Chinatown. We found it very easy to walk everywhere except Orchard Road (too far in the heat) but the hotel operates a shuttle, and anyway, cabs are very cheap. There are also several good restaurants right around the hotel. The rooms are great. Very stylish and comfortable. Plenty of natural light and interesting spaces. Very nice roof top bar too. We arrived at 9am after a night flight from Australia and were lucky enough to be able to check in straight away (no extra cost either). The breakfast was good and served in a nice bright area. When we had trouble sending emails from our tablet, they sent up an IT guy to help us. The wifi is free everywhere in the hotel and they also have a computer in the foyer for guest use. Very friendly and helpful staff. We would definitely stay again.

We've been to Singapore many times and stayed in larger hotels. This was our first time in a boutique hotel. This is a very nice hotel - modern and very comfortable, with very helpful and friendly staff. Can walk to Chinatown and MRT, although when it's hot taxis are easily available and not so expensive. Good value - it's just that hotels in Singapore are very expensive.
