“Great hotel- lovely rooms, friendly staff, but an average breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Paid about 550 GBP to stay for 4 nights at Wangz in early September 2013 through Booking.com for a "deluxe room" but was subsequently upgraded to a "canopy room". Hierarchy of rooms being superior, deluxe, canopy, balcony. Please check when booking if the price includes Service charge (10%) and SGT (7%) as this can be a nasty sting.

Room was a decent size, big comfy bed, decent tv with lots of channels, free wifi, dvd player (can borrow dvds from reception), molten brown toiletries, and free non-alcholic drinks from minibar.

Decent bar on the roof and they have a "fitness suite" which is a shoebox.

Reception was really friendly and helpful; as were porters, and they have a driver who will happily nip you around if he is not doing a shuttle run.

Location wise it is a bit out, and if you are wanting to walk out your door on to 500 shopping malls go nearer to Orchard.

Breakfast was an average buffet which was really nothing special.

For a 3 days city trip to Singapore, I was looking for a design hotel not too expensive.
The Wangz hotel is well situated near MRT (metro) Outram Park station (10 min walk). The architecture of the hotel is special and designed to use the space available surrounded by 2 roads. The room was big (little traffic noise), the bathroom huge and service very friendly, the breakfast was ok (the chef will cook your eggs like you desire it). Good place to use as a base to visit Singapore without to be down town but not necessary if you want to be near the nightlife places.

Good efficient hotel. Staff pleasant, rooms good sized. We opted for a balcony room but it is probably only worth it if you are a smoker. Little traffic noise even though you are on an island surrounded by roads.
Breakfast is ok but you could fork out for and walk around the corner to the Tiong Bahru bakery which is excellent. Also to be highly recommended is Two Face a new restaurant on Eng Hoon st across the road, that is a old style coffee shop in the morning then in the evening the kids take over and it turns into a young funky pasta/pizza place in the evening. Great food and far better than the dodgy looking places right next to the hotel.

When travelling with my little boy, I prefer to choose a hotel with spacious room. And Wangz is really a good choice at a very reasonable price.
Thanks for the comments and tips by previous travellers which help me to choose this hotel. We enjoyed our stay and found the compliments on the hotel are all true.
Nice room, great breakfast, free shuttle to MRT, China Town, Marina Bay, Raffles Place......, efficient room service - so we will surely stay again.

room was just right, breakfast was ok, best thing is the free shuttle service that can drop u almost anywhere, location was not so great but nearest metro, the outram park st is a 10 min walk. interior is articulated with art pcs here and there, they didnt have an english map when we were there so we were lost the first night for a while, make sure you download a map and mark the hotel if u go out walking.

Dear Hamza T,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us.

We are glad you appreciated the complimentary scheduled shuttle and are surprised by the unavailability of an English map during your accommodation. There are various city maps at the Front Desk which guests may help themselves to and should there be a need for a specific area map, the Guest Services team would also be more than happy to provide a print-out. I do apologise for this slight inconvenience experienced.

Please visit us again soon.

We stayed here prior to catching a cruise...it was a lovely place...spacious room...bright with windows all around...including the bathroom which we thought odd...as the blinds had to be closed most times (for obvious reasons) making it quite dark and the lighting did not compensate. Staff was most friendly and accommodating. It was an easy walk to Chinatown and a little further to catch the Hop on Hop off bus. The bar on the top floor is a nice place to review your days activities and plan your next adventure. (Two of our highlights were Sentosa Island where we did the Mega Zip...Yahoo! and the Singapore Flyer where you see the city from every angle!) I just had to try a Singapore Sling...I had forgotten how much alcohol was in one of those!!! The waitress was wonderful and kept bringing me more ice and soda!!! The breakfast each day was most enjoyable with a variety of Chinese Dim Sum items that were so yummy! Computer was readily available for our use.

This hotel clearly understands what their guests want. The staff are all very helpful and polite. Free wifi, breakfast and newspaper more than make up for the location and walk from the MRT. I had the best wagyu burger in the underused restaurant and will quite happily book here again. In my opinion the bathroom could do with a rethink as the lighting is poorly designed but the shower is one of the best I have used.
