Comfortable, well situated hotel with friendly staff – review of wangz hotel, singapore – tripadvisor gas jokes


My husband and I, with our daughter and son in law spent 8 nights in April at Wangz and we cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. From the first contact via email to our arrival this hotel and its wonderful staff impressed us. We were given adjacent rooms as requested and these rooms are fantastic. Modern and impeccably clean with all the amenities you expect – free wifi, safe, minibar, robes, slippers, toiletries, tea and coffee making etc and wonderful beds. Because of the circular nature of the building we were rarely aware of other guests and slept well. Wangz offers some extras not usually provided. These include free non-alcoholic drinks in the minibar, replenished daily, and an excellent breakfast in the rooftop dining room. This includes eggs cooked to your preference and delicious croissants and pastries as well as cereal, yoghurt, juices, coffees and hot and cold platters. Kim in the dining room was always ready with a welcoming smile and exemplary service. Wangz also provides complimentary Handy phones which allow free phone calls both local and to selected countries, maps and tourist info including some discount ticket deals. We found these invaluable. Reception staff, especially Isaac and Brian were able to answer all our questions, book taxis or the free shuttle bus, and went the extra mile even providing us with ice and sliced lemons for our pre dinner in room drinks. Location in Tiong Bahru is very convenient. The area itself is the oldest public housing development in Singapore and abounds with deco architecture, quirky shops,great restaurants and coffee shops and a fantastic hawker centre (Tiong Bahru Market) with mainly A rated stalls. All in easy walking distance of Wangz. For a traditional breakfast of kaya butter toast, soft boiled eggs and kopi for $4.50 we recommend Sam Yat which is a few steps away from Wangz on Outram Rd. 10 minutes walking or free shuttle from hotel takes you to MRT Outram Park which links 2 lines and provides easy access within a few stops to all the places you’ll want to go.The bus service is also comprehensive. Public transport and taxis are very cheap and services frequent. We would not choose to stay anywhere else on future trips and thank Wangz for helping make our holiday so fantastic and memorable.

We picked the Wangz hotel out of the list provided by Trip Advisor for Singapore. We had just finished 2 weeks in Vietnam and Cambodia and were on our way to start a Seabourn cruise after our Angor Wat adventure. What a pleasant surprise. You actually come into the hotel beneath it and I was a bit concerned that the reviews overstated its reality. I was quickly assured of its quality when we entered our room. Sleek,modern,clean, great view,etc. staff couldn’t do enough for us. We had dinner on the roof and it was both delicious and reasonable. Here again the staff was very attentive as were the front desk staff who called for transportation to the ship the next morning. We were only about 10 minutes from the pier so it allowed us to spend a pleasant morning exploring our surroundings as well as enjoying an included full breakfast. We plan on returning to Singapore next year and giving ourselves more time to enjoy this city-state. There is so much to see and do there that 2-3 days is a necessity. We will again stay at the Wangz.
