Forest by Wangz blurs the distinction between hotel and apartment. This is more like a hotel with apartment like facilities (e.g. laundry) but with hotel supportive staff. All staff go out of their way to support you. We loved our week there.
You would be hard pressed to find a better hotel/apartment in Singapore. Breakfast was provided and quite hearty. Pool and gym were utilised. A handy phone is available free.

The MRT is 7 minutes away. Novena is not downtown Singapore but a quieter area only 20 minutes away by train. It is very close to Newton for hawker food (1 stop away), Little India is just over a KM, and there are plenty of great cafes in Novena itself.
A taxi to Changi airport is 20 minutes and approx $20. You can MRT it but it is a lot longer.
It is also much closer to Singapore Zoo than downtown hotels.

Our only complaint....for some reason there is no breakfast on Sundays. We walked up the street to Clueless Goat and had a superlative breakfast at even better prices (meals under $10 a head.)
Overall, a fabulous extended stay with family in Singapore.

Room Tip: Larger rooms have laundry facilities and balconies.

Dear Moonflower59,

Thank you very much for your kind review of our property and am glad to know that you fully utilized our facilities during your stay.

Yes, our staff will always try to go the extra mile for our residents and love to interact with residents in order to get to know them better. To us, some of our residents have actually become more like friends!

Breakfast and housekeeping services not being provided on Sundays and Public Holidays is a standard for almost every pure serviced apartment in Singapore, but we do hear you and your concerns. To help lessen the impact of this inconvenience, we do place additional cookie/biscuit filled jars in our lounge for residents to help themselves whenever breakfast isn't served, but certainly, it is no replacement for a good hearty breakfast which is what you do enjoy rest of the week.

On the plus side, you did manage to discover Clueless Goat as a go-to place for a lovely breakfast, and I personally would like to thank you for pointing out such an eatery existed so near our property which we can recommend to other residents.

We hope to see you again in the near future, thank you for staying with us!

It's not a hotel, but the closes thing to it in terms of service and amenities. Everyone there was extremely nice and helpful and the overall place extremely clean. Very nice rooftop with a good view over Singapore.

Dear Franz S,

Yes, we are indeed a serviced apartment (and not hotel) with a minimum 7 nights' stay requirement set by the government. Having said that, anyone looking for a longer stay in Singapore will certainly appreciate the convenience of having a kitchenette with fridge in each of our units, as well as our self-serve laundry machines. It's like a home away from home!

Thank you for your compliments and we hope we will see you again very soon when you come back to Singapore.

From the moment we arrived to our departure we felt home. On arrival, the manager showed us around the hotel starting at the basement eqipped with washing machines and dryers, followed by breakfast room and swimming pool on 1st level up to roof level with chillout area. All the hotel staff was service oriented and very kind. Whenever we had questions or whishes, they took care of. Next time, when returning to SIngapore, we would definitively choose this neat hotel again.
The next MRT-Station Novena (@ Novena Square) is in 7 minutes walking distance. Small shops and restaurants provide what's needed.

From the second we arrived we were delighted with everything about this fabulous hotel.
Every member of the staff went above and beyond their role.
the room was great, spotlessly clean, yummy breakfast, lovely bed and so well equipped.
We loved the pool and rooftop lounge .
this is by far the best hotel/apartment we have stayed in our many travels, but the staff made it the best ever

I booked this place for seven nights based on the previous reviews. I however tried to arrive with an open mind about things this place could be lacking but I can (gladly) say that I didn't find anything to complain about.

The youthful staff was professional and nice from the first hello to the final goodbye. The housekeeping (Janet in our case) was professional and a very nice lady to have conversation with. The Chef and the other staff did a good job during breakfast so your day always started off well. The combined laundry machine and dryer was worth its weight in gold when you always had fresh clothes available. These amenities makes it possible to travel pretty light if you don't want to bring different clothes for each day. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need to make a good meal. However Singapore with its many hawker centers is the Mecca for cheap and delicious food so we didn't feel the need to cook this time. The full size fridge is optimal for storing your cold drinks and snacks.

The rooftop area offered great views and comfortable sofas to sit in with a cold drink after a day out and about.

The pool was good and never crowdy. The small gym looked very inviting but we didn't use it this time as it felt like you got enough exercise by walking around the city in the greenhouse conditions that the city provides on a daily basis.

As for public transportation the hotel is right there. The Novena MRT (located under the Novena shopping center) is a 7-8 minute walk away and the bus stop about half of that in both directions. You really don't ever have to spend money on taxis or uber when living here if you don't want to.

We had a late flight on our departure date and the availability was favorable for us and the kind manager offered us a 4pm complimentary late check out.

If and when we re-visit Singapore we will also come back to The Forest by Wangz. It's a great place to stay if you like us want to stay a bit away from the touristy areas, but still within a few minutes from everything.

Dear Stefan G,

On behalf of our FOREST team, thank you for such a thorough review of FOREST!

We do place an emphasis on maintaining the level of service provided to every guest that stays with us and I am glad in your view, we succeeded.

For someone staying a week in Singapore, a serviced apartment is certainly recommended due to the facilities provided such as a kitchen and washing machine as you mentioned, and helps to make the stay more convenient and enjoyable. The presence of a pool doesn't hurt either, especially if one has kids tagging along!

Your lovely comments will only encourage us to continue doing what we love, which is to see the smile on the faces of our residents throughout their stay. Do come back to visit us soon!
