“Great offering”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

This is an awesome place with amazingly attentive staff. I loved being away from the hustle and bustle. We took the MRT everywhere. This place is a family owned business and you can tell by the way in which it is run. I am not a fan of big, chain hotels and hoards of people, so The Forest was a perfect fit. I stayed in a studio. Room was small but all amenities were available including cooking facilities.

I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this place.

The Forest by Wangz was a lovely place out of the hustle and bustle of your typical tourist concentrated area.

The stay was for a week back in January and was a very enjoyable stay. The staff are very friendly and helpful, The rooms were great and so was the facilities provided.

Breakfast is offered during the week and the hot breakfasts were made to order (from the menu). The chef there was very friendly and overall nice bloke.

This place is very suitable for the business traveler as well as families with young kids.

The location is only about 10 minute walk from the local shopping mall and MRT. One thing that was interesting though was that not many taxi drivers new about "The Forest by Wangz" as it was nestled amongst residential housing.

Would definitely come back here ... Look forward to seeing you guys Faizal and Patrick on my return trip.

We chose Forest By Wangz as our earlier booking in another hotel had issues and had to be cancelled in the last minute. Since we did not have time, we simply chose the top rated hotel by TripAdvisor - Forest By Wangz - and we were not disappointed!

The staff in this cozy, modern place is absolutely wonderful and make it all worthwhile - we landed up at the hotel by 7 AM very tired (after a 5 hour wait at the old KL airport) and we were welcomed to our room though we were 7 hours early of the check-in time! (please do not expect for this to be the norm - that will be a huge disservice to the staff at Forest).

The studio room was small - in fact, a bit cramped (about 300 sft) - but had everything there. A kitchen with 2 burners, a microwave oven, a toaster and several types of vessels and cutlery - all of top quality and excellent condition. The music system was a nice addition and we used it quite a bit. The king size bed was comfortable. There was an additional sofa as well. We had free Wifi, free local phone calls and free breakfast for all four of us.

We have two boys - one who is 12 years old (grouped as adult in Singapore hotels). Most hotels we had contacted earlier had issues in allowing the four of us to stay in one room - they either wanted us to take up a 1-bedroom unit and purchase an additional bed or take up two separate rooms. However, at Forest, they left this entirely up to us, which was great!

The breakfast was absolutely fantastic -the spread was great and the staff cooked a variety of egg-based items, pancakes, waffles and hash-browns. The breakfast area was very nice and the whole experience, perfect.

The roof top lounge along with the garden is extremely relaxing with some lovely furniture and the city views. The swimming pool looked inviting, but we did not have the time to enjoy it.

The location is fantastic being very close to the MRT, shopping district and the city center.

But what tops the experience is the exceptional service and the genuine warmth of the staff. They were always available and helpful.

Two aspects that tourists to Singapore may be concerned about:
- being a service apartment, there is a minimal stay requirement of 7 days
- the cost is close to that of several glitzy, high end hotels. As tourists, if the prices are comparable, there may be a temptation to stay in large, grand hotels than in a smaller place such as Forest

Having said that, ultimately, as tourists, we would also like to come back to a cozy place with friendly staff and a comfortable room. The fact that the building is large or has a grander reception area should not really matter. It did not matter to us!

We would definitely go back to Forest.

Dear Ramesh-Vini,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. It always warms our hearts to read such positive reviews like yours.

Please allow me to clarify that not all Studio apartments have a sofa fitted in them. And while each apartment does allow a maximum occupancy of 2 adults and 2 children (aged 12 years and below), there is limited space to add an extra mattress in the Studio so we strongly recommend families with older children to stay in the One-bedroom apartments instead.

All of us have enjoyed serving you and look forward to seeing you and your family in the near future.

The Forest was an amazing experience. I stayed there for 3 weeks for a business trip and everyone made me feel like home. Great service, location and room. I recommend it to everyone who wants to avoid big hotels in the city center of Singapore and wants something more intimate!

The Forest is a wonderful small hotel with great amenities and very genial and helpful staff. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment the taxi pulled up and all the staff looked after us so well during our visit. We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and found this to be cool, quiet and with great contempory decor. Having a kitchen is good for a break from eating out and we enjoyed the balcony for a drink and read after a day out. Terrific rooftop garden area and guest lounge and great breakfst where we were given a choice of hot food each morning. The hotel is in a very handy location - MRT and shopping centre is only 10 mins walk away and shady of a morning. It was just like living in your own apartment in Singapore. We loved the Forest experience and can't recommend this hotel enough.

We stayed in a one-bedroom executive room, which has a small living area with full kitchen and bedroom separated by a sliding glass door. The living room has a small couch and large TV with DVD player. The kitchen has everything you need to cook, along with a washer/drier. There is a nice patio with table and chairs off the living area. The bedroom is small, but there is enough storage space under the bed (in drawers) and in a mini closet. The bed is really comfortable and there is a second flat screen TV mounted high on the wall (it is a bit too high). The bathroom is also small, but has ample storage space and yummy-smelling Moulton Brown toiletries. The room has wi-fi, a LAN line, safe, and bathrobes. The welcome note and munchies were a nice touch, especially because they happened to be some of my husband’s favorite snacks.

The hotel is in a really nice residential neighborhood just outside the city center. It is only a five minute walk to a shopping center / grocery store and the north/south MRT line. The hotel also offers a daily shuttle in the mornings to several locations in the city.

The room rate includes a continental breakfast each day except Sunday with fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, breads, and pastries. We really liked the coffee/espresso/tea machine and water cooler in the lounge that is open all day.

The courtyard pool is a nice space to cool off and relax. There is a small gym overlooking the pool with a Lifecycle treadmill and elliptical machine, free weights, multi-purpose weight machine, towels, and bottled water. There is a large TV, but it is so high on the wall that it is tough to see on the cardio machines unless you tilt your head back.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. On the way out one day we mentioned that my husband was recovering from dysentery. While we were out, the staff left electrolyte drinks, bananas, and a get well note in our flat.

The Forest by Wangz is a great choice if you seek a flat where you can settle in, cook, do laundry, and get to the city center with relative ease.

We booked Forest by Wangz for a week's hilday in Singapore and it proved to be absolutely perfect. The apartment itself was spotless, well equipped (inc washing machine/ dryer - much needed), and very well serviced on a daily basis. Make sure you get one with a balcony, I'm not sure if all the rooms have them but I don't think so. From the moment you arrive the staff are tremendous. The breakfasts are very good and Gideon is great to talk to first thing in a morning. The staff simply could not be bettered. With the amenities they have, the welcome they give, and the way they go out of their way to help you - we could not envisage staying anywhere else if we go back. First class.
