“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014

We recently stayed at The FOREST and could not have wanted for more, nicely presented clean rooms, attentive and extremely helpful staff,good pool area and a nice breakfast selection. Although not in the real tourist area, the public transport is close at hand and the hotel staff are happy to organize taxi's for the hotel guests. Once again thank you for retrieving our grandson's teddy after he went awol .Bernadette and Bob

The Forest is a beautiful boutique style accommodation with excellent service. It may not be located in the tourist precinct of Orchard Rd but don't let that put you off. Taxis are reasonably priced and plentiful. The rooms are kept very clean, breakfasts delicious and the pool area is a perfect retreat after a long day of sightseeing. There is also United Square and Velocity just a short walk down the road offering plenty of eateries. We could not fault this place - they even managed to track down a lost teddy bear! Would definitely recommend The Forest to friends and family in the future.

A small but nice little "boutique hotel" with many guests with longer stays. The main characteristic is that all staff are attentive and friendly and really seem to want to make your stay pleasant. Kudos to them!

The location is pretty OK. It takes around 7 minutes to get to Novena Square with its shops and MRT station; the MRT brings you directly to Orchard Rd and downtown. Still the hotel is pretty quiet (of course, we could not open the window :-). The building itself is in great shape; everything works and seems spotlessly clean, so also the rooms. Note: to make the room lighter and "airier", the walls to the bathroom are made of glass; parts of it, but not all, frosted, but still ... Not a problem for me; but be aware.

There is a also a nice pool and a small gym (did not try the gym).

One thing that could be better is the breakfast. Very limited choice (no ham/meat, no cheese except for cream cheese, and so on). The chef makes various versions of egg and bacon upon request, but I find it strange that in a culinary high-light like Singapore, the property serves breakfast only from the world's worst cuisine.

All in all, pretty happy with my stay and would be happy to go back next time I go to Singapore.

Dear csaba10,

Thank you for taking time to write this review. I am delighted that you enjoyed the service, facilities and location at our serviced apartments.

Your feedback on improving our breakfast selection has been well noted. We had previously offered a few Asian delights at breakfast but the demand for these items was low thus we have since stopped it. Nonetheless, we value your comments and can see where you are coming from. The Management will be looking into how we can enhance the spread.

All of us at THE FOREST BY WANGZ look forward to your return in the near future.

Trip advisor reviews brought us here so expectations were high but realistic. It delivered after our 10 day stay. You get used to the small but excellently appointed rooms. Anyway who lives in the room, Singapore is great to see at night. We fronted Moulmein Rd and I found the traffic a bit noisy but it never troubled my partner.
As all the reviews point out service is excellent, and that really makes your stay enjoyable.
We loved the pool and the rooftop area, with its views and lounges.
Breakfast was excellent, all you need. The free all day coffee machine was a godsend.
It really is close to shops and the MRT, we used it each day.
Take a walk around the neighbourhood, with its medical buildings, churches and amazing temple along Moulmein Rd.
Security here is also great with staff discreetly checking doors, rooftop area etc, it was good to see.
We had a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Back rooms may be more quiet.

We had a fantastic 8 day stay in Singapore, made very comfortable by our stay at the forest. A great little boutique hotel.

The rooms were bright, quirky, and exceptionally clean. Also a nice quiet ambience exists, which is hard to provide in a small property, close to the road. But it is very serene.

The 1 thing that stands out the most about this hotel though is the staff. They are all so friendly and helpful, from the cleaning staff to the kitchen staff, especially Gideon, who couldnt do enough for us at breakfast times, while engaging in entertaining conversations!! And to the guys at the front desk who smiled, chatted, laughed, and were very generous to us every day. You are all a credit to the hotel, and the owners are very lucky to have you all. Well done and keep up the good work. So to Danny, Macky, Gideon, Aisha, and the other guys whos names we cant spell, but you know who you are! We will see you again next time. Thanks for everything.

We will not hesitate in coming back to the forest next time we come to Singapore, and will recommend the hotel to friends and family.

Room Tip: Our room, which was a studio, was probably a bit small, but was ok for us, maybe best to go for the...

By choice our normal lifestyle is very tranquil and rustic and we therefore made our recent trip to visit our kids in Singapore with some trepidation. The 16 days we spent there turned out to be the most amazing and enjoyable experience and this was in no small part down to the friendly and peaceful atmosphere of the Forest By Wangz where we could relax and unwind after a hard days rushing around in the heat and humidity trying to cram in all the world beating sights and attractions on your doorstep in Singapore. The hotel was immaculate and beautifully laid out with the pool and roof top gardens being ideal places to relax, we only booked a studio room but it was very comfortable and had everything we needed. Due to the heat the air con was a godsend; as was the ability to wash and dry laundry very quickly for just a couple of quid if you didn't want to use the more expensive laundry service. ( we need not have taken so many clothes with us!) We looked forward each morning to the extensive breakfast buffet which was served by staff who could not possibly have been more friendly and cheerful, nothing was too much trouble for them and this was reflected throughout the staff from the cleaners to reception. The location is great as the MRT station is just 10 minutes walk away and from there everywhere is easily accessible. The MRT like the taxis are very cheap to use and very efficient. The kitchen facilities in the room were great but we soon realised that with the huge choice of places to eat out at unbelievably low prices (even at the big attractions) we only catered for ourselves on odd occasions. Finally the gym, although small, was well equiped and immaculate and we used it everyday. In short, if you asked me for a single negative about our stay at this hotel I could not give you one and this pretty much applies to our whole visit to Singapore.

Room Tip: I don't think there would be much difference.There are busy roads to front and rear but then you...

My grandchild was really excited to stay at The Forest, because the hotel has colorful design and furniture, it reminds him of his kindergarten. When we spent our holiday in Singapore, this hotel made me feel like sweet home. Hotel staffs were friendly and pleasant. Our room was unique, modern, cozy and comfortable. Hotel swimming pool was small, but clean and fantastic.
