“Nice Heartful memory”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

This is a nice hotel,acceptable price,and quiet nice room.It's true that this hotel got the best room because i sleep it for 3 days still find it comfortable.It's room service was good and the facilities was nice and cool.For real,its closet is for real big and suitable for multi day trips,and every thing that i wanted is already got in this hotel.Although there is a problem with the location because i want to go to the center of city but kinda far from here.Well,there are also a lot of supermarket and shop near it so i won't get in trouble for buying things for my supper or else.If you guy want to go to other places,you can take the MRT which is take about 4 minutes walk to it . At Last,this hotel is wonderful!!Hope you guy can have a nice stay in this hotel and i suggest you guy stay it for 3 day or more!!!!

Room Tip: If you are a solo traveller,take less bag if you want to save more space in here.

We stayed at the Forest in Sept 2013 and was totally happy with this service apartment for its good location, facilities, and most of all for its great service. Hence on our recent trip back to Singapore, we stayed again on our return visit, and as expected this stay was just as wonderful and did not disappoint in any way.Special mention needs to be made of their staff, all of whom go way out to provide sterling service to make your stay memorable. The resident manager Faizal, receptionists Aikee and Aisha, the great chef Gideon, the driver Yan all deserve special mention for their warm and friendly service and smiles at all times of the day
Will definitely return again to this service apartment for future stays

Great little serviced apartments, conveniently located and well priced for Singapore. Excellent facilities and great staff (they even brought us cake as it was my husband's birthday!) The apartments are very well thought out, every little detail is functional. Very comfortable bed, lots of closet space for people who are staying a bit longer. It's not in the city centre but close enough and there's lots of shops nearby, with 2 supermarkets and decent shopping malls. Only 5 minutes' walk from MRT. Highly recommended if you're staying in Singapore for over a week and want to save some money by cooking your own food.

Room Tip: Ask for room away from Moulmein Road.

We stayed here for 8 nights in december..
We wanted an apartment rather than a hotel room..
It had everything you needed..
It is very close to the mrt train station & shopping centre..
We used the trains all the time as it is so cheap, clean & reliable..
We did find the location was a bit too far out from orchard rd etc..
Breakfast was pretty good again the staff very friendly..

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor in the premier suite.. Very quiet..

Coming to Singapore for 2 weeks to visit our daughter, we found the choice of hotels totally bewildering. We decided to go for the Forest by Wangz because it was rated so highly on tripadvisor. We certainly made the right decision. We loved the fact that the hotel is small and slightly out of the centre (although walking distance from Orchard Road and also on the excellent 124 bus route). We found the atmosphere at the hotel completely relaxing. We booked an apartment room which had everything you could need including a bath and a very well equipped kitchen. The furnishings were modern and spotlessly clean. The pool area was delightful, as was the rooftop lounge, and we also had our own large balcony. Above all, though, the staff were quite outstanding, striking the right balance between friendliness and service.

I stayed here for 7 days in January. Even though the design and the quality of the rooms were adequate, I thought it was one of the most overhyped hotels on Tripadvisor I have stayed at. The location is far from ideal (very few taxi driver knows where it is, walking to Novena Square still takes 10 minutes), and more importantly, unless you work in healthcare, there is nothing really interesting around here, it is situated amidst a sleepy residential area. The Forest appears to be a hybrid between an apartment and a hotel, featuring both the good (service almost everyday, even though you will quickly run out of soap since this is only replenished once a week, friendly staff and excellent breakfast) and the bad (small size, not ideal location) of both typologies. I left this place to stay at the WangZ hotel, which has a similar look-and-feel and compact design standards, but for me, works better, as it presents itself unambiguously as a hotel, and is located at a much more interesting location (Tiong Bahru, with its unique art deco feel and hip locales, and Chinatown), with direct access to the AYE.

Dear J H,

Thank you for choosing to stay at both our properties during you recent business trip to Singapore.

I am disappointed to read that you did not enjoy your experience at THE FOREST BY WANGZ. Please allow me to address some of the comments mentioned in the review. Unlike a conventional hotel, we, as a serviced apartment, only provide weekly replenishment of Molton Brown bath amenities and offer limited facilities. We understand that some travellers prefer a more vibrant surrounding, but the quiet residential area we are located in also has some appeal for longer staying residents who prefer to unwind in a home-away-from-home at the end of the day.

Nonetheless, we are happy that you had a good stay experience at our sister property in Tiong Bahru and appreciate your compliments for WANGZ Hotel in this review.

Once again, we appreciate your support and look forward to welcoming you to a WANGZ property in the near future.
