“Showing Signs of Age, But Still Good”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

As I've said in previous reviews of the property, it is the well trained and cheerful staff that makes the difference. Special kudos to Criselda at the front desk and Dianne at Nectar! They really made my family's stay very enjoyable.

This time around, I got to explore the surrounds and appreciated the location a lot more. Good and cheap eating places right outside the hotel (aside from the Hawker centre one block away). Easy access to bus stations (Eton PreSch and Blk 55) and walking distance to Outram Park MRT.

Unfortunately, the hotel is showing signs of age. The vinyl flooring has shoe skid marks and 2 sockets in the room are busted, hence the 4* rate. Nonetheless, it is still my first choice of hotels in Singapore.

We travelled with my wife and 4 year old to singapore and stayed at Wangz from the 19th till 25th of May 2013. Small property but great decor. MRT outram park is just 5 mins away and Chinatown is walkable if u are upto it.


Stayed in 4th floor Room 408 which was away from Outram Road so not much of traffic noise although traffic in singapore is pretty orderly ,Very minimal or no honking , so i guess it would not have made much of a difference,

Room Amenities:- Everything one needs for a holiday was there i guess, ipod charger, mini bar, work desk etc. One grouse though-- no kiddie channel on the cable tv and no cartoons in the in house dvd collection either.

Cleanliness:- cannot complain. Every time we came back , our rooms were very well maintained.

Comfort- The bed and pillows were clean and really nice to ease off to.

The complimentary breakfast was good, the usual selection of cereals, chinese baos, bacon, choice of eggs, fresh fruits, et al. Although if you stay for a longer period, it can get repititive. We yearned for some dosas, idlis etc.

Staff: Excellent, very courteous and helpful. I cannot complain on this aspect.

My husband and I loved this little Hotel. From the piped music throughout, to the Molten Brown toiletries, everything was spot-on. All of the staff we dealt with were excellent, and being a smaller hotel, the service is personalised.

We had Cocktails at the rooftop bar overlooking the skyline and then dinner close by at a local restaurant recommended by the staff which made for a very enjoyable night.

Breakfast was lovely and afterwards we took advantage of the shuttle bus into town.

We had flown into Singapore and simply hopped on the MRT at the Airport, then it was a short walk from the Station.

Highly recommended. We will stay there again and have recommended it to others.

room was just ok. looked like walls were quickly painted over to hide the areas that could do with a renovation if possible. very boutique but not erring on the luxury side in any way. felt it was an awkward drive way into the hotel basement/carpark where the car (taxi) drops you off. i was dropped off both times this way.

staff were very good. they went above and beyond to offer help and solutions.

location is on the corner of a busy intersection by day, fairly quiet by night. hard to hail a taxi at this intersection. SMRT stop is close enough, about 7mins walk (factoring in the humid warm weather that can slow a walk down).

Dear Yvonne K,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us during your visit in October last year.

Due to certain government restrictions, the hotel is unable to provide a proper driveway. And for the safety of our guests, the drop-off and pick-up point has been located in the basement carpark.

Your feedback regarding the condition of the room has also been noted. Please rest assured that we carry out regular maintenance and improvements in our guestrooms to ensure guests enjoy the best of our facilities. We do apologise that the condition of our walls were not up to standard during your period of stay.

The team looks forward to the next opportunity to welcome you back should your travels bring you back to Singapore.

What a stunning hotel from the outside, and great inside too. Loved the circular design, and the original art on the walls. Rooms were a good size, and the roof top bar gave great views especially at night. Would happily stay there again, and the shuttle bus does make getting to the sights easier, but check the times and where it is going, although taxis and tube travel is very reasonable.

This cool little spot is so welcoming and yet trendy, it caught be off-guard. The staff were unbelievably helpful and friendly. Rooms are decorated beautifully but don't feel stuffy. While the location is not right in the center of the actions the MRT station is a very short walk, the staff is always happy to call a taxi and the hotel also offered a free shuttle as well. Breakfast is delicious and the rooftop lounge is a great way to end the day. The only down side is that there's no pool. Overall though it's a really great choice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher floor.

On the way to London from Sydney we had two nights in Singapore at Wangz Hotel. While it is outside the 'centre' of the city, there is a shuttle bus and a metro station just down the road. We chose to walk most of the time. Rooms are quiet and included breakfast very good.
