I have visited Singapore many times but until this trip have stayed in hotels. We decided to look for an apartment to accommodate all 4 of us in the same place with shared living space for us to relax.
The location of Far East Apartments is fantastic. It is a short stroll to Orchard Road and right next to the Hyatt (for fantastic food) and across the road from DFS. It is also very close to the Orchard MRT station.
When we first entered our apartment we were incredibly disappointed to see that the apartment was in much worse condition than the photos on the website would have us believe. There were many dirty marks on the walls, the furniture was very worn and our balcony door did not close properly. The kitchen was very old. The apartment was however spacious and the bathrooms and beds were very clean.
We decided to talk to management about our disappointment and we cannot speak highly enough of Dominic who was very willing to hear our concerns before offering us a refurbished room instead. Our new room exceeded our expectations. The furnishings were of good quality, it was even more spacious and very clean. The kitchen and bathrooms were more modern and the living space was very large. We stayed in this apartment for a week and enjoyed it very much. The staff we met were very helpful and friendly.
I was disappointed that the treadmill in the small gym was out of order (since it is so hot to run outside!). The hot water was also inconsistent so we had a couple of cold showers.
However overall, we would return to Far East Plaza Apartments and we would request a refurbished apartment.
