“Fab boutique hotel”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

We really enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is small and friendly, the staff couldn't be more helpful and best of all the A/C is always on full, so it is a welcome, cool environment as you step inside from the Singapore heat. Breakfast was fine, the rooftop bar was lovely (the cocktails amazing!) and the rooms were quirky and comfortable. We really appreciated the free WiFi and the free soft drinks in the mini bar. My only minor gripe is that, after a full day exploring in heat, the walk from the MRT station can seem long and hot. The hotel does offer a shuttle to and from Outram Park a few times a day, and also to a couple of other places. My recommendation would be to only offer a shuttle to Outram Park (everywhere is accessible from there) but to offer it more regularly throughout the day in both directions for travel weary guests.

Dear greeneggs2,

Thank you for the positive review and we are glad to have offered an enjoyable accommodation experience. Your feedback on the frequency of our shuttle service has been duly noted. Currently, we provide hourly drop-offs at Outram Park MRT Station and will relook the scheduling should the demand require more trips in future.

We wish you well and look forward to your return.

Stayed here 2 nights as our usual hotel in Singapore was charging high prices due to a conference in town. Very please we found this hotel and will be staying here again on our future stopovers in Singapore. Lovely quiet and largish room on 2nd floor with a large bathroom. Could not hear any traffic noise. Staff were very friendly and helpful, breakfast was enough choice to suit most people. We enjoyed the quietness, away from the hustle and bustle of larger hotels. It is only a 10 min walk to the MRT or to the riverside in the opposite direction where there are reasonable priced dining options. Had a drink at the rooftop bar which would normally be very pleasant but as the whole of Singapore was covered in smoke haze from Indonesia, views were limited. The only (minor) negative comment is that they charge extra at breakfast if you want tea other than English Breakfast Tea. I find this odd as other tea varieties are available free in guest bedrooms I shall bring my own teabag next time and hope they don't charge for hot water! Would definitely recommend staying here if you like smaller, friendlier hotels.

Room Tip: We just had a normal room on the 2nd floor and it was great

Dear babsfromtas,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us. We are delighted to read of your pleasant accommodation experience and appreciate your compliments on the overall environment, service and offerings. We will also review your comment regarding the tea selection available at breakfast.

The city is unfortunately still suffering the effects from the haze and we all hope the air will clear up within the next few days.

We look forward to welcoming you back in future and assure you will be awed by the spectacular view from Halo then.

After reading tripadvisor reviews it thoroughly met out expectations. A smaller hotel, which is what we like. The rooms were nice- I do have to say though, they vary. We traveled with another couple, and our room on the same floor was bigger than theirs. Our room didn't have the decorative metal on the windows so we could see out, theirs did. Our toilet was not in our shower theirs was. We were room 604, they were 608. Both rooms the air con could keep up with the heat. Very clean, comfortable. Staff was excellent, desk staff would come out from around the desk to greet us each afternoon when we returned from the day. Excellent breakfast. One of the reasons we picked this hotel from tripadvisor is that it said it was close to the metro- people said a 5 minute walk. We are walkers, and the metro is more like a ten-15 minute walk, depending on the lights. Not an issue usually, but trying to adjust to the heat, it can be hard in the afternoon, and it was hotter than usual the week we were there.
The Halo bar on the 7th floor is great, nice views- it was rated in the CNN travel guides in the best rooftop bars in Singapore. It is a bit expensive, but then everything in Singapore seems to be. We went three times for drinks before dinner, service was usually excellent expect for one night. I think the server got up on the wrong side of the bed. It wasn't crowded (3 tables) and he wouldn't serve us (we aren't obnoxious teens) After 25 minutes of waiting we had to walk to the bar and ask for service, and then he wouldn't offer food or more drinks. We had to go get him each time. We had never had this server before. If this was our first time up there, not sure we would have returned, but After the excellent service the other two times up there, we would still recommend it. The waiter is the reason I could not give 5 stars.
The hotel is more in a residential area, which we like too. Each night we would go next door to the family eateries and have some more spring rolls and a tiger beer and just people watch.

Room Tip: I would just say ask for a room that the toilet is not in the shower, it is literally in the shower

Dear kathy3531,

We are glad to read of your positive experience at our hotel.

The design of the building and its circular floor space makes every room set-up and view unique in its own way. In an effort to provide a spacious bedroom area, the bathroom in yours and your friend's room were designed differently.

We truly apologise for the lack of service at Halo on that particular evening which is totally unacceptable by the Management.

Please let us thank you and your friends again for staying with us and all of us hope to see you again in the near future.

Stay in this place if you are on a leisure trip to Singapore. The surrounding area of the hotel is interesting. It is good walk to the Outram Park Metro and bus station (I enjoyed walking under the canopy of trees on the side of the park.) Best part of this hotel is the service. Structural constrains of this hotel are very much compensated by the friendly and accommodating staff - from the bellboys, front desk personnel, shuttle bus driver and Nectar's Norma and Dianne.

Room Tip: Don't hesitate to stay in a second floor room. 206 was fairly quiet.

We stayed at Wangz for 4 nights on a short break in Singapore to see the sights. The Trip Advisor reviews were very positive and the price was better as compared to the multitude of hotels around Orchard Road.

We arrived very early at the hotel around 7:00am. The hotel is built on a tight block and the steps up from the pavement to the reception area are quite steep, especially when carrying a large suitcase. We had no expectations of our room being available at such an early hour, but, to our great delight, a room on the 6th floor was available immediately for us. We had booked a superior room but suspect that our room was a deluxe room at no extra cost. The room was large and airy and extremely clean. Perfect! The frosted glass between bedroom and bathroom will certainly not be to everyones taste but it caused us much amusement! Our room was cleaned daily by a very friendly housemaid. There were only about half a dozen rooms on our floor and, for the most part, we were never aware of anyone else staying on our floor. However, in the early hours of one morning, next door was obviously taking a shower and the noise in the bathroom was clearly audible. It didn't last long, fortunately, but more sound insulation would be advisable we think. You could hear some road noise, but it was never intrusive and was never detrimental in any way.

Breakfast was very good with a nice variety of produce. I particularly enjoyed the muesli. Coffee and tea were quite nice but both could have done with being hotter when served.

For us, the location of the hotel was great and, personally, we would completely disagree with those who say it is too out of the way. The hotel is a very easy 10 minute walk from the Outram Park MRT station. In just one stop you are in Chinatown or, in just 2 short stops, you are either at the Dhoby Ghaut interchange (convenient for over-priced Orchard Road) or Raffles Place which is perfect for Boat Quay and surrounds. Our daily walk to Outram Park MRT was a non-event for us.

The staff at Wangz are outstanding. Every one of them is so friendly and helpful and they went out of their way to make our stay a memorable one. One evening, on asking the front desk whether he knew of a good Indian restaurant, actually arranged for the hotel minibus to take us all the way to Little India to the said restaurant. We said we were happy to get the MRT but he insisted that the hotel would take us there. The minibus driver even gave us an umbrella when the heavens opened just as we arrived at the curry house. Brilliant! The curry was also very good too, mine being volcanically hot!

We enjoyed our short stay at Wangz Hotel immensely. Their outstanding staff will long live in the memory. If an easy 10 minute walk to the MRT station sounds too daunting to you, then look elsewhere although, wherever you are in Singapore, you will have to do plenty of walking to see the sights. Wangz Hotel is thoroughly recommended in our opinion.

Dear ShailerPark,

Thank you or choosing to stay with us during your recent visit to Singapore. We are delighted to have made your short break a memorable one.

Guests arriving with luggage are encouraged to enter via the guest lift located in the basement carpark for easy access to the hotel lobby instead of climbing up the flight of stairs at the main entrance.

Your feedback on the temperature of coffee and tea at breakfast, and the room sound insulation has been duly noted and will be addressed by the respective departments.

The team is honoured to have been of service to you and look forward to your return visit soon.
