We travelled to Singapore to celebrate a significant birthday and had a wonderful time. We generally enjoyed our stay at the Wangz. The best feature of the hotel is certainly the staff. They are efficient, very pleasant and helpful at all times, The hotel is really quite small and feels more personal than many others and the staff all help to make you feel welcome and valued.
My opinion of the hotel as follows:
We booked a deluxe room, which seemed smaller than expected but was comfortable though not in any way luxurious. We never figured out how to turn the lights on when entering at night...there are no switches near the door, so you stumble about in the dark. The room wasn't entirely clean, some grime and grubbiness on the curtains etc, but it was generally satisfactory and the bathroom was smart and clean. Noise from the restaurant at midnight (directly above our room), tables and chairs being dragged etc, was loud and not so good. also traffic noise was an issue, even on the 6th floor.
Breakfast was ok, sometimes a bit of a bun fight as its a small room and only one coffee machine. We were never sure if we were meant to use it, as the waitresses would come along and check you were operating the machine correctly - but they didn't offer coffee when you arrived, so what do you do? The food was fine and the selection limited but adequate for us.
Dining in the evening was a little odd and disappointing. We were alone, the only couple and the food was tapas style eats, which sounded good. Everything was a little odd, the scallops tasted frozen and other dishes tasted a little ordinary. for us, it was overpriced with no atmosphere and the menu seemed a little strange and left you feeling a bit underwhelmed.
The location was a downer, not the hotels fault, but it would stop us staying there again. The walk to the metro is only 10 mins but compared to the location of many similar hotels , it felt a way out. We were walking up to 20km a day, so we slightly resented the extra walk in the evening!
All in all though we enjoyed our 6 night stay, next time though we will probably look elsewhere.
