“Enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

Ultra modern rooms. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Located walking distance to MRT and Chinatown. Bus stop out front. Breakfast adequate. As the hotel is fairly new, make sure you have address or tell taxi driver it's next door to Link Hotel. If you are going to the new Casino make sure you take your passport or strictly NO ENTRY! Room service is restaurant quality and affordable.

it is certainly one of the most fashionable hotel in Singapore. Instead of staying in a 5 star standard hotel, i chose to stay this boutique hotel, both for saving cost and traveling differently.

My room is superior style, which is ironically the cheapest one,and it is indeed a little bit small, though space is adequate. Design is good, especially the bathroom. As some of reviewer mentioned, Wangz room receives hotel music from it public speaker system. Of coz you can turn it off or down, but the music they chosen is indeed nice melody and quite good to accompany you to sleep. Location is convenient and people there are helpful. The Halo rooftop bar is certainly a best place to relax after a full day appointments. The large and crispy projection screen makes it the wonderful place to watch world cup.

The only con of my two days stay is the breakfast, choices are too limited.

anyway, it is a wonderful stay in Wangz hotel, one of the sexiest in town.

This hotel stands out just by the architectural design, it's round and made of metal. The hotel is very small and very modern. The staff were amazing, they all remembered our family name and were very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely with beautiful bathroom. We stayed in two rooms, the first one faced some small back street with outdoor eateries. The problem with this room was that every morning around 7 the bin collectors came and made terrible noise emptying the bins. First morning we thought it was just that one but when it happened the next morning we asked for another room. This room was very similar in design and on the same floor but faced the main road. No bins there :)
The hotel is a walking distance to Outram MRT, takes about 10 minutes to walk there. The breakfast was included but was nothing special, the usual toast, bacon and eggs, yoghurt...
Try the rooftop bar in the evening, it's very nice.
The best thing about this hotel is the staff and the free internet.

The Wangz is a new hotel, however it is not a new building, but rather a refurbishment of an old building with the resulting flaws that this brings. The staff provide an excellent service, but being a small hotel services can be limited. It is unknown to taxi drivers, yet too far to walk from the nearest train station in Singapore's heat or rain. Breakfast was poor. Considering that the price was not much cheaper than downtown 5 star hotels, and its poor location, the value for money is not worth the extra effort required to stay there, just to save a few dollars.

My Husband and I booked a trip to Bali with a couple nights layover in Singapore (May 6-8, and 14th). I chose Wangz based on the trip advisor reviews I had read. I was sold on the Rainfall shower alone! The hotel definitely did not disappoint! For being a small boutique hotel, the service was impeccable. The rooms were modern and nice, the bed was comfortable, and the shower was very relaxing. The staff went above and beyond in their service, they arranged the night safari for us, recommended great restaurants, surprised us with a delicious cake for our honeymoon, and even had breakfast provided for our early check out (4am) on our last night. My husband and I walked all over the area, and when further away had no problem taking a cab back. It would be good to mention the link hotel to the cab driver, just for reference. I would highly recommend this hotel, and look forward to when I can return.

We checked in for a staycation and explored the nearby market for meals.
The room is neat and well designed. There is a 42" LCD TV with dvd player.
The rain shower in the toilet has excellent water pressure.
My only gripe was that the breakfast selection was rather poor.
But that's not an issue with the wonderful Tiong Bahru Market nearby.
There is free wireless broadband which was a plus and a ipod dock in each room.

Highly recommend this hotel. Everything is modern and well finished. The rooms are about the size you would expect and fit in with the style of the hotel. The bed was very comfortable with many pillows supplied. Had a very good sleep and didn't want to get up early. The staff is very friendly and professional. The hotel itself is not large. The restaurant is located next to the lobby. The hotel has a gym, albeit very small, but it does have some free weights and a running machine. No charge for wifi which is a nice change. The hotel does lack an appropriate area to drop off guests. I could tell the hotel staff were aware that this is a flaw and they do their best to overcome it. For some who are a little picky about their service, this may be a slight slight issue. I found that every taxi driver I had didn't know the hotel. I suppose that is a sign of how new it is. I remembered what it looked like in the photo on the website and this helped find it. So make sure you have the address and let the taxi driver know it is next to the Link Hotel. It is by no means a large Sheraton style hotel.
