“Wangz Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

The staff and the hotel are excellent. The hotel is located only 5 minutes from the subway station and near many restaurants.The only downfall is no pool. There is nothing the staff cannot do for you.

Dear JanJCanberra,

Thank you for taking time to write this positive review.

The building regulations do not permit a pool within the property so unfortunately, we are unable to meet that expectation. Nonetheless, we hope for the pleasure to serve you and your family again at our hotel in the near future.


Best regards,

Friendly staff, stylish design and good location. Strong wifi and complementary soft drinks in minibar are nice additions. Finally a hotel with detectable night light switches! Also, Wangz is surrounded by small and inexpensive (for Spore standard) chinese restaurants. Nice alternative for dinner or lunch.

We booked the hotel because its reviews were so good, so maybe we expected too much. We stayed 2 nights in a Deluxe room. We were picked up by the expensive hotel car, driven by an unfriendly and careless driver who almost caused an accident. Reception is nice, lobby small, OK for a 2 to 3 star hotel. We were confused by the website. The hotel does not have a pool and the Gym will only be used by fanatics. The hotel is located amidst highly frequented roads. To avoid seeing too much of the traffic, there is a metal framing around the building which gives some privacy, but also the feeling of being in a cage. Noise isolation is good, so the traffic does not bother during the night. Aircon is also good and not to noisy. The room is OK and clean. For sleeping only the hotel is OK. For sightseeing, the location is not good enough. You always need transportation. The rooftop bar is very nice. You can sit outside and enjoy some view and the warm weather. The lobby café served breakfast, but the staff seemed to be tired half an hour before the serving ended: plenty of dirty dishes around, not enough supply on the buffet...Reception staff is nice. I would only recommend this hotel for business trips.

Dear Niedrig,

I am sorry to read of your abrupt experience coming from the airport to the hotel. This serious issue has been brought up to our limousine service provider and we are working with them to ensure this does not happen again.

While you unfortunately did not enjoy our location and design, I am glad you had a pleasant stay with us. From your feedback, our F&B team has since implemented some changes to allow a more seamless breakfast service for our guests.

I thank you for choosing to stay with us and hope that we may have another opportunity to serve you again in the near future.

My fiancée and I went there for one night and liked it.

The room was well decorated, the amenities are full range and we had a very good general impression.
The complimentary drinks in the minibar are very welcome, the balcony we had the chance to get has plants, chairs, table, very nice for breakfast.

An example of the sense of service of this hotel : we arrived in the morning, too early to check-in, so we let our luggage to the front desk receptionist. In night time, when back to the hotel, the luggage was already in the room. Same the next day, we let the luggage upon check-out at noon, came back at 5pm to get our luggage and requested a taxi. Waiting for the taxi, they serve us a complementary drink, and when taxi arrived and we have been escorted to the basement, we had the good surprise to see our luggage already in the trunk of the taxi.
Small intentions but good effect.

Room got full equipment (big screen tv, DVD player, iPhone dock radio clock, and even you have a volume button that enables you to listen to a very nice lounge music, sometimes latino, very enjoyable.

Shower is modern, towels smell very good and are comfortable to use ; which is not often in the hotel.

The location is 5-10 min from Outram MRT, 15 min from Chinatown main street. Quite nice.

I stayed here on a weekend break with my parents and brother. Both our rooms were spacious with comfortable beds, large pillows (which you can swap for a more regular sized one if you prefer), mini bar with some complementary drinks, a great shower and a strong wifi signal. One of the rooms was upgraded and so was bigger, and the shower had a full floor to ceiling window (there are blinds in there so you don't have to shower in front of the whole world!). There was no problem with noise from the traffic even though the road outside was a busy one.

The hotel provides a complimentary shuttle bus to the MRT station (which is only a few minutes walk away) and various tourist points (such as Orchard, and the Harbour Front) fairly regularly, finishing at about 5pm. Taxis are quite cheap too - it was about $5 SGD to get to Orchard. Because the hotel is relatively new and is small compared to a lot of other hotels in Singapore, most of our cab drivers hadn't heard of it. But the room key cards had a map on the back so we just showed them that, which seemed to do the trick.

The rooftop bar is pretty amazing, though the drinks are expensive ($13 for a beer). The fitness room is tiny but sufficient, containing a treadmill (where the top speed is a brisk walking pace), a versatile weights machine, and dumbbells (the largest is 9kg). There was also a couple of floor mats, exercise balls and complimentary towels and water bottles.

The staff were lovely and always looked happy to see us and help out. I'd definitely go back again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 5th floor in 501 and 502. Both rooms were great, though room 502 was bigger.

Booked their weekend special for a short getaway from the city.

Checked in slightly later, but room were not ready so they upgraded us to deluxe room.

Deluxe room is spacious and the shower/toilet with window view is also a plus point. (Remember to wind down the window cover before bathing!) Although it was not at high floor (5th floor), facing the main road, it was not as noisy as we think it would be. However, there's slight smell from the toilet, could be sewage problem.

Location is great with lots of eateries such as Tiong Bahru Market and the Tiong Bahru bakery!

Breakfast was well served with own selection of eggs! You can asked for overeasy, sunny side up and many others.

Nothing much to complain about. Definitely, a great getaway from the city :)

My wife and I had three very enjoyable days in Singapore aided by the quality of Wangz Hotel and their very obliging staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble. If we return to Singapore, we will definitely return here
