We ended 3 weeks in SE Asia at the Wangz and really enjoyed our stay. The service was top notch, never missing a beat from check in to an early morning airport departure. The rooms are really comfortable with tatami mat like textured floor and cool music avail through speakers as desired. The location is a little bit off the beaten track but we loved being next to Tiang Bahru with its history, nice hawker center, and trendy shops. Get an EZ link card at the MRT station and take ANY of the 5 buses across the street (Eton school) one stop to Outram Park MRT. The buses are great and easier in many ways to the MRT, although the walk to MRT is not bad.
Roof bar is very nice for happy hour to 9pm.
Only negative of Wangz is the bit of traffic noise perceivable in rooms but we slept fine.

This is a well located boutique style hotel, but a little lacking in soul. The rooms are spacious - great shower, and we were upgraded to a room with a spectacular view of Singapore at night time. Breakfast is continental style - with eggs as a hot option. We didn't eat at the hotel as the restaurant downstairs seemed a bit sterile and the one night we wanted to eat in was Valentine's Day and the roof top restaurant was full. The MRT station and Chinatown are both easily walk-able - although after a long day walking around Singapore the walk back from the station seemed to get longer and longer. Hotels in Singapore are expensive but for £150 a night I have certainly stayed in places that felt more special than this.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a room on one of the top floors. The view at night was good

We visit Singapore and stay in the center of town most times, but this time we wanted to stay in a neighborhood outside of downtown and Wangz was the perfect choice.

It's just a block from the MRT station and has easy access to Orchard Rd, Marina Bay or just about anywhere else in Singapore. Wangz is a short 15 minute ride from Chiangi Airport.

We really enjoyed this hotel. It was close to everything and just right outside the door is the TIong Bahru neighborhood with lots of great little shops and restaurants.

Decor is ultra modern and the bathrooms are very large. Most have windows that face the outside of the hotel, but the unique facade of the building gives you the privacy you need.

Even though the hotel is near a busy road, the rooms are surprisingly quiet. Each room is a bit different, but well appointed.

The rooftop bar is great for an afternoon drink or appetizers with wonderful sunset views over Singapore. The breakfast is also great, with a small buffet, plus made to order pancakes or eggs of your choice.

Service was excellent both in the hotel and at the restaurant. If on the off chance you're renting a car in Singapore, beware that there is very little parking in the uber tiny parking garage below the hotel.

If you're looking for a great little boutique hotel in Singapore in a hot hip neighborhood, Wangz is for you.

The Wangz Hotel is owned by a member of the family that owns the Ritz Carlton and it shows. The staff are very friendly, efficient and accommodating. The rooms are very comfortable. I brought a group of 15 to stay at the Wangz and everyone felt the same way. Breakfast was terrific -- much more extensive than the description of "continental." Eggs and cappuccinos are made to order. The food and beverage staff, the front desk staff, the cleaning staff, Sylvia (the morning hostess) and the shuttle driver were all top notch.

It's a bit off the beaten track but that is kind of nice in go-go Singapore. It's nice to have a quiet place to return to. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone going to Singapore.

Visited a few days ago just to the rooftop bar, must say i am very much impressed. The barmen on duty was this interesting dude named Kee(not sure if he's the supervisor though he strikes me as such), together with this tall dude whose name i didn't manage to catch. Fantastic cocktails, we got the botanist bowl and the cocktail of the week(some turquoise thing) after a couple rounds of the one for one beer. More than the beautiful atmosphere and view from the bar, what really left me impressed was the attitude and friendliness of the staff, namely Kee. He was courteous, made recommendations and told us a few funny jokes, even referring to me by name after i told him what it was. This makes it more personal and rather than just serving me he became a friend. Didn't try the food as girlfriend and i had dinner before coming over, but will definitely try the tapas next time. Overall very good experience there, keep it up kee and team! Will be bringing friends as promised!

Dear johnshuck,

Thank you for sharing your experience at Halo rooftop lounge with us. Your compliments for our bartender, Kee, have been conveyed to him and he is very thankful and honoured for receiving such praise.

I am also happy to know you enjoyed our signature cocktails and Happy Hour offers and would strongly recommend the tapas as perfect pairings during your next visit. In case you visited us on a weekday, you may be interested to know that we offer live entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings as well.

All of us look forward to welcoming you and your friends back to Halo very soon.

(By the way, a mental note has also been made to put Kee next in line for a promotion.)

This is a wonderful small hotel with attentive staff, spacious clean rooms and attentive service. The food service during our stay was very good as was the delightful roof top bar and eating area. If you don't wish to eat in the hotel there are numerous local restaurants within easy walking distance catering for the locals and tourists alike. It is situated within an easy walk to the MRT which is an excellent way to move around Singapore.Additionally the hotel provided a courtesy bus each day which serviced the popular areas such as Orchard Road.

Room Tip: Hotel is on a corner amid busy roads but window glazing and curtains took care of any noise

What a wonderful hotel this is to stay at. The rooms are lovely, the beds are wonderful and the staff are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. Everyone went out of their way to help us. Smiling faces we're everywhere and all staff were genuinely caring. The complimentary breakfast was delicious as we're the specialty coffees. The hotel was close to everything which was an added plus.
A special Thankyou to the server Natalie (we believe her name was) who was an absolute gem and made the most wonderful mocha chinos for me. if ever in Singapore again, we will be sure to stay only here.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a balcony if possible.
