I was in Singapore for a wedding in late March and stayed at the Wangz hotel for 3 nights with my boyfriend. I chose Wangz largely based on tripadvisor reviews and was happy that the hotel met my expectations.
The modern design and decor is very striking and sets it apart from your typical chain hotel. Our room was a good size, very light and airy, and had all the modern amenities you would expect of a high standard hotel. The bathroom was also very nice and clean, not huge, but again had very modern features. The best part about the room was the huge and super comfortable bed, generally, I got great sleep in that bed.
The couple of times I didn't was when I was awoken by the sound of people in other rooms (in their bathrooms specifically) - the sound definitely travels and that's my one main downside to this hotel. I've read a lot of mentions about the noise from traffic on lower floors - we were on the 4th floor and we didn't hear any traffic or outside noise so I'm guessing we were high enough to avoid it.
The hotel in a good location, near Chinatown and is less than 10 minutes walk from the MRT and a short cab journey away from the main attractions (or a manageable walk if it's not too hot). The hotel provides a shuttle bus to the MRT and into the centre of Singapore at a few specific stops (Orchard Road was one but I can't remember any of the others now) and at set times during the day - we never used it because the set times were never in line with when we were needing to go, but it's definitely handy to have and can save you a few dollars on a cab or the MRT if you're happy to be flexible on timings.
The breakfast spread was good, as you would expect relatively limited compared to bigger hotels, but what was there was very nice. They also provide you with complementary water and soft drinks from the minibar which was a really nice touch.
The staff were all so friendly and helpful, from the receptionists to the staff at breakfast, everyone was so lovely and always willing to assist with anything you wanted.
Generally, I thought this was a very good hotel and only a few things away from being amazing - i.e. travelling sound, and the lack of hotel amenities such as a swimming pool or a particularly large gym, which you would easily find at any number of the many luxury hotels in Singapore. That said, you should expect this if you're going to stay at a smaller boutique hotel, and I would be happy to stay here again if I were to return to Singapore.
