Friendly, helpful and cheerful
Anne was an amazing host and we totally enjoyed our long stay which was extended too. The accomodation was most comfortable and the location was superbly convenient. Thank you for hosting us.
An excellent place to stay!
I highly recommend staying at this property. We found it perfect for our needs. We were a party of 5 friends (including 1 couple) on vacation and stayed here for a week in January 2020.
It is spacious! There was plenty of room for all of us. I thought the apartment was larger than it looked in the pictures. The rooms with the double bed and the 2 beds were quite large; the single room was smaller, but is only meant for 1 person. If we wanted to sit in the living room, the couch would not have fit all of us, but we usually hung out in the kitchen anyway. At one end of the apartment is the 2-bed room and its bathroom, next is the kitchen, where the front door is, then the living room with half bath (where the washing machine is), then the other 2 bedrooms with their bathrooms. The bathrooms are located inside the bedrooms, so you minimize disturbing others while you use them.
The apartment is comfortably furnished. The beds were fantastic! The kitchen had most things you might need. The managers offered complimentary use of small kitchen appliances, such as a toaster oven, that did not come with the apartment. The windows provided plenty of light and the light bulbs were nice and bright, unlike every hotel I’ve ever stayed in. There were thoughtful touches, such as hair dryers and slippers provided. I even liked the light fragrance of the shower gel and shampoo provided! Although the listing states that housekeeping visits only a couple times a week, they actually visit every day to empty the trash and change the towels; I believe the listing refers to the times they do a deeper clean of the apartment.
The apartment building has its own small swimming pool, and you have access to the larger pool at the YMCA next door. Also at the YMCA, a very good restaurant, if you are too tired to go out to eat or cook. I believe the YMCA owns the apartment building and the YMCA seems to be a real community center, with lots of people coming and going. This activity did not disturb us in the apartment, because of the spacing of the buildings. We weren’t ever disturbed by the other apartment residents either, we barely heard anyone else during our stay.
The property is extremely well run by Anne and Grace, who staff the front desk. They were so helpful, always happy to call a cab or advise us about activities. The front desk is staffed until about 8:00 in the evening, so there is help most of the day; after hours you can go to the YMCA
Great for family
The apartment was very clean and spacious. It’s fully equipped with all we need and we felt very at home. Staff and service are friendly and extremely prompt, helpful and hospitable. Location is great, MRT and bus stop nearby. One MRT station away to Newton, Orchard , etc. My children really enjoyed staying in the apartment and wants to come back again to stay when we visit singapore next time. We definitely recommend the apartment to families with young kids like us, as the area is safe and quiet.
Great place for visiting singapore
This apartment worked out great for our family of 5. With the 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, it was perfect for our family of 5. Spacious apartment, comfortable with enough in the kitchen for basic stuff (breakfast etc). You will need to make a run to a shop for supplies as there are not food products other than a much appreciated welcome basket (tea and coffee packets, a few snacks). The location is great- there is a bus stop just in front, and the Stevens MRT/Train station is just a block or so away, so it's really easy to get around (3 days tourist transit cat was $30 Singapore dollars, super reasonable). The Y is great- pool and gym were enjoyable, and the restaurant looked good and had good reviews (we never made it to eat there). Ann, the rental agent, was delightful to work with and very helpful. Also nice having the 24 hr reception desk at the Y. Would absolutely stay here again!
I brought my family of 4 to Singapore for 9 days so my husband could have knee surgery at Gleneagles
I brought my family of 4 to Singapore for 9 days so my husband could have knee surgery at Gleneagles Hospital. The apartment was great for our family. The beds and bedding were very comfortable, each bedroom had its own bathroom and shower, and getting cleaning service every other day was so helpful. This apartment is actually part of the Metropolitan YMCA. What's nice about it, is that unlike a typical apartment vacation rental, you have full-time desk staff that can help with any request-travel suggestions, taxi booking, where to buy groceries, etc. So we really did have the best of both worlds-a nice apartment, plus all the amenities of a hotel. I would highly recommend.
