“Pleasant Singapore experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Very clean and tidy one bedroom apartment (although a little cozy after our stay in Georgetown) with excellent amenities in a good location nearby the Novena station; nice pool and a beautiful rooftop garden.

Staff were very helpful, pleasant and professional; and thank you for the birthday cake!

Just returned from a month stay at the Forest and I am so happy I chose this hotel. The staff was the best part of the stay. They give 110% customer service. The hotel itself is nice and clean. The breakfast was great. I love that I had a washer/dryer to wash my clothes.
The Forest is down the street from the Novena MRT. About a 5 min walk for fast walkers and 8-10 min for slow walkers. There are the Novena Square and Union Square malls at that corner which has many restaurants and food courts. Novena is 2 stops from famous Orchard Road and 4 stops from Douby Gout which connects you to other MRT lines to go to China Town, Little India and etc...
This was my 24th trip to Singapore and it was nice to be away from all the crowds and tourist at the hotels on Orchard. I highly recommend staying at the Forest.

This is a follow up from a review six months' ago. The staff continue to maintain high standards which translated to a wonderful stay. A special thank you to the chef who took pains to make sure we were comfortable!

On checking into the hotel, we could see it was very clean and well maintained. The staff were wonderful. My luggage had been lost and they called the airport to check he ttus of my baggage. When it arrived at 2.30am, they kept it safe for me. Whenever it was raining, they provided an umbrella for us. They also had a shuttle bus which took you to various places if you so wished. The hotel was not very big in terms of number of rooms which was perfect for me. The room itself was beautiful. There were big fluffy dressing gowns, Molten brown toiletries, a powerful shower, a comfortable bed and a safe. They also had free WiFi. The breakfast was OK, I wasn't keen on the sausages and smoked bacon but I can forgiv this as the hotel, he staff an its proximity to the MRT station were wonderful. the friendliness of every member of staff and I mean everyone, the condition of the hotel and all the wonderful little extras really made our holiday that extra bit special. All I can say I experience this hotel for yourself. It really is a gem in a big city. I will be going back. I utterly loved it and I can honestly say it is one of the best place I have stayed in and felt at home. Beautiful staff, rooms, pool, artwork. Clean. Amazing xxxxxxxx
PS: the front of the hotel lights up at night. Very pretty.

I stayed this Hotel for Nine Nights and Ten days (07/11/2013 to 16/11/2013) The Hotel is located at central place, close to MRT, Novena Station, hardly 7-8 minutes walk. They have their own shuttle bus service to Orchard Road and China Town. Rest all places viz. Singapore Zoo, Night Safari, River Safari, Singapore Flyers, Gardens by the Bay, Sentosa, Universal Studio and Airport are all fifteen to twenty minutes away by taxi. Little India and Mustafa market are very close. In short location of this Hotel is very very convenient,

The entire Hotel is very very neat and clean. Excellent Housekeeping.

Impressive Check Inn and Check out formalities. All the staff members of this Hotel were very very cooperative. Warm welcome by Ms. Aisha is really memorable and cherished. Lovely breakfast and precious advice regarding local touring and shopping by Mr.Gideon was again valuable. Both of them are an assets of the said Hotel.

I will strongly recommend the said Hotel for long stay with family.

It's off the beaten track (though only a 7 minute walk to the MRT and a couple of shopping centres), and has a relaxing ambience, which I really appreciated after a day's work. The apartments are big, and well equiped. WIFI was on the whole excellent. Staff are very welcoming and professional. Breakfast was a good selection of fresh fruit, yoghurt, a hot egg dish, bread, pastries and chinese/malay dumplings. I loved the roof terrace.

The pool isn't huge, but big enough; the gym is on the small side (just one running machine, one crosstrainer, and a multi-exercise weights machine). I only used the shuttle bus once, as it didn't go in my direction, but nice to have if it's raining.

I didn't discover the forest!

The Novena area has plenty of places to eat in the shopping malls.

My wife and I stayed at the Forest by Wangz from 3/11/13-11/11/13 and what a fantastic choice of hotel we made.The hotel is spotlessly clean and in a good position right by Novena MRT.There is also a local shopping area and food centre near by with lots of choices for places to eat.The hotel staff were all lovely especially the chef Gideon I think his name is who cooks your breakfast to order.The choice is great eggs bacon pancakes etc.The reception staff are all so friendly and helpfull.We stayed in a studio which was lovely .The roof top garden was also lovely to relax in after a day out.I would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone.
