Far East Plaza Residences by Far East Hospitality

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 12, 2014

This is our fifth stay at the Far East Plaza Residences in Singapore.

We booked 12 months in advance for our family holiday for the 17 December 2013 to 17 January 2014, hoping to secure a renovated apartment, which we did.

The apartments are spacious (we had a three bedroom one) lovely renovated bathrooms, comfortable beds everything you need for a great holiday. The kitchen is equipped with a full size fridge, microwave, oven and hotplate. The bonus is a washing machine/dryer in the unit which is fantastic, especially for families. My only gripe with the kitchen is the placement of the sink. The unrenovated apartments have the sink under the window which gives you more bench space and a drying place for dishes. This renovated apartment has no place to put your dishes and water ends up everywhere. But that aside, you could not ask for a more comfortable place to stay.

The staff are fantastic, and Devi from housekeeping who cleaned our apartment was amazing. Very thorough with her cleaning, and the apartment always looked immaculate after she had finished. Quite a challenge for her with six people staying. Thank you Devi.

The security team, were all very courteous and helpful especially Harry, who always greeted us warmly and always had a lift waiting for us. Thank you Harry. The other members of our party had a two day stay in Melaka and I stayed behind on my own. I would have never considered doing this if I didn't have total faith that help was there if i needed it from both the office staff and security.

Apart from such wonderful service that we have received every time we stay here, you cannot beat it for location. Bus, MRT, food and plenty of it, shops galore and a good central location to base yourself while on holidays. From here you can get to any of the attractions Singapore has to offer easily. My teenage children and their cousin can easily navigate around the city on their own, which i would never allow them to do at home.

We love Singapore, its become a second home. Especially here at the Far East Plaza.

Will we come again, you bet we will.....Thank you to all the staff at Far East Plaza Residences, once again you have made our holiday one to remember.

We really enjoyed staying in our three bedroom apartment. We were on the 8th floor which seemed perfect to us as it was high enough to have a bit of a view of the Christmas Lights on Orchard Road but low enough to make it quick to get up and down on the elevator. We had a very comfortable room that was clean and well appointed. Having two bathrooms was great with five people in the apartment as well. I used the washing machine daily (it was provided in the room free of charge) and found this very useful also. The cleaning staff, security staff and office staff were all very friendly and helpful. We felt safe and secure here and the easy access to the four story shopping mall at the front of the apartments was great, there were heaps of food outlets and a 7/11 and the Orchard Road MRT was only about five minutes walk away. On the whole we found it great central place to stay with a family and the apartment had plenty of room for all of us.

Stayed in Far East Plaza in September with my small children and elderly mother for 7 nights. Staff were fantastic - free upgrade from 3 bedroom apartment to penthouse (wow !) and then late checkout to accomodate our evening flight. Thank you Suzana Khalid and all the staff for your hospitality ! Location is perfect for Orchid Road - close to everything. For the value, do not think you can go past the Far East.

Three friends and I travelled to Singapore to play golf and were looking for an apartment with a bit of space so we could sit around and have a drink after playing golf and an apartment right in the go zone of Singapore. Luckily we found Far East Plaza. The whole experience from checking in to checking out was excellent, the apartment itself was a little dated but very spacious and very clean. The staff, all the way from the office people to the security desk were absolutely fantastic and very helpful. We were able to get a late checkout which allowed us to leave all of our golf clubs and bags in the apartment until we were ready to leave (so convenient).

I would have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone who intends to visit Singapore and will definately be using it myself when I next visit.

Room Tip: Try and book an apartment that has been renovated.

We brought our adult children to Singapore for our youngest sons 21st birthday and the F1 and decided on a three bedroom apartment at Far East Plaza. What a find, I booked this 9months in advance, we stayed on the 9th floor for 9days. The staff were outstanding we managed to check in early and out late late to coincide with flights. Victoria was kind enough to print out vouchers for our Universal Studios and Singapore I-adventure passes. The complex has great amenities which includes a lovely large pool and kiddies pool which shared with a grand total of 10 people our entire stay, a gym, spa, kids playground billiards table which is huge, tennis courts, and separate laundry which we didn't use as we had a washer dry on the balcony which was a fantastic. Housekeeping serviced the apartment 3 times which was outstanding, and replaced the gas bottle promptly, beds were comfy and assortment of pillows was terrific, Cable TV was good, price was outstanding as everything doubles in Singapore for the F1 week. 5mins from the MRT depending on if you stand eyeing of the Ferrari's outside the Grand Hyatt next door, good groceries in basement Scott's Plaza.

We decided on a holiday to Singapore in April 13. It was our 1st overseas holiday with our then 1.5 year old daughter so we decided on booking an apartment as she would have her own room to sleep. We were very happy with our choice of Far East plaza apartments and stayed for 9 nights. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment itself was a little dated but had all the facilities we needed. They also provided a full size cot and highchair for our daughter at no extra cost which was very much appreciated! The washer/dryer was also a great bonus as it was nice to be able to do some washing when needed. The apartment is in a perfect location very close to orchard road and MRT and all the major shopping centres as well as being located above Far East Plaza shopping centre which has some great value shoe and clothing stores and food places. As well as fulfilling our needs in terms of location the apartments also accommodated our daughter with a lovely playground, outdoor and pool area which we were able to enjoy in the mornings before the shops opened ect. The staff were all very welcoming and pleasant to deal with. We had an issue with the DVD player on arrival and it was promptly replaced as well as the telephone which was crackling. I feel the apartments were very good value for money in comparison to a hotel as although they were a little dated the added facilities and extra room made up for the decor. We loved that we were able to return to the apartment for our daughters day sleep on some days and we had the freedom to move around, watch tv and eat lunch which we would grab from downstairs without disturbing her sleep. The only negative I have is that at night it was sometimes a bit noisy as you could hear people coming in and out of apartments with door slamming. We would not hesitate on staying at these apartments again if we return to Singapore and recommend it for families as a much better option than 2 hotel rooms in the Orchard Rd area!
