“Friendly Modern Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 25 January 2011

Wangz Hotel emerges like a small metal gherkin right at an intersection between Tiong Bahru and Chinatown. The hotel is small, 40-something rooms, and the service is knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. The building is round, and the rooms radiate like spokes off a wheel. That means the rooms are quite unusual, not like your typical big chain hotel, with full length glass windows, stylish showers, and all the typical amenities. Lovely breakfast buffet. Overall, great value and convenience all in one.

I stayed at the Wangz Hotel for 2 nights on my way home from Europe to Australia. It was fantastic. The design is smooth and modern. The staff were really exceptional! I arrived early in the morning and the great guy at reception allowed me to check in straight away. The room was amazing - funky design and some wonderful features you do not get in most other hotels - all free. These included: DVD player, IPod player, complimentary drinks in the bar fridge (soft drinks, water, juices, tea/coffee, free high speed wifi internet, free local phone calls, newspaper each day, exceptional bathroom amentiies (Molton Brown products!), continental breakfast that included eggs, bacon etc.

I can't speak more highly of this hotel - now the location is not perfect although it is a 20 minute walk to Chinatown and the Outram Park MRT station is only a short walk away.

I loved this hotel and would definitely return.

When we first entered our hotel room the first words we said was quite simply WOW! The room was truly amazing with great views and the shower room was a rain shower wet room that overlooks the city (Room 612). Ambient music quietly fills the hotel making you feel at home.

We also had the use of an iPod dock and batrobes as well as complimentry drinks (The drinks that were not complimentry were reasonibly priced).We ventured upto the Halo Bar at the top of the hotel and the view from here is simply breathtaking and the cocktails they serve are fantastic, around 16 $SGD each.

The staff at the hotel are super friendly and truly try their best to make your stay a memorable one. The location is good. It is about a 5mins walk from Outram Park MRT station hopwever we found the best way to get around the city was by taxi as these are very cheap indeed.

One bit of advices I would give is if you do catch a taxi then make sure you take one of the Wangz maps they give you as most Taxi drivers do not know the hotel as it is so new.

We will definitly be visiting Singapore again as it is such a beautiful city and we most certainatly will be staying at this hotel again.

Recommend staying here for anyone really. It's probably not as central as you can get as it's a taxi ride to the centre. But other than that I couldn't fault it. Great rooms and very friendly staff. I stay here again if I came back to Singapore.

Stayed here 3 nights recently on way home from India. It's not in the heart of Orchard Road shopping, but it is only 5 mins by bus or MRT to China Town, Club Street restaurants etc.. There is a bus stop over the road from the hotel, with a choice of about 6 different routes that go via Outram MTR and on to Eu Tong St, Chinatown, and some on to Orchard Road. Its location also makes for a quicker/shorter taxi trip to and from the airport.

We arrived after long air trip from Mumbai, via a few hours in Chennai, and were impressed with reception we received, and then the room. We had booked through a discount booking agency so didn't know to ask for a 'front' room (in a round hotel!), so the view from our room was of a small local food hall and bins etc... But no big problem, and not noisy.

The room was roomy and very comfortable, with all comforts. Loved the bathroom, no tub which we didn’t miss, but an excellent roomy shower. Only complaint here that the fittings had clearly not been designed with women guests in mind – very small free standing table by the basin, not up to accommodating your average lady’s toiletries and cosmetics!! However, the long ledge at floor level of window proved useful here, just involved a lot of bending! And there was complimentary hi speed internet avail in room.

The staff, from reception to breakfast room and Halo rooftop bar were excellent. A particular compliment must be paid to the young ladies working in the breakfast/bistro area and room service delivery – always greeted us by name, and with a 1000watt smile.

After a long trip for the first night of our stay we enjoyed an excellent meal in our room, well presented and delivered with a smile. Breakfast in the Bistro was very pleasant, if not the usual gargantuan buffet, all we needed and eggs done on request to suit The ‘rooftop’ bar after dark is also a pleasant change, being completely open air (not enclosed in muted ac cocoon), with efficient cooling, and a view of the night time city sky line to die for.

I would highlly recommend this hotel. It is only 5 min walk to the nearest MTR station. Room is very sophiscated designed and built. Staff are friendly and informative. I got a free bed with my reservatio for my teenage girl when I mentioned it was my birthday. I was even given a complimentary birthday cake when I arrived. Very considerate.
Room is spotless. Breakfast is good enough.

I'm regularly in Sing on business and have become disillusioned with the big hotels. This place is great. Staffs are super helpful; Rooms are large and equipped with free Wi-Fi, basic mini bar drinks, super comfy bed and a great shower. The gym is brand new and barely used. However the real distinguishing point is the uba smiley and helpful staff. The big chain hotels have a lot to learn from places like this. It is also cheaper!!!
