Housing Questions for Newbie Moving to Singapore... Pls Help

Post by agoodfella » Sun, 20 Jan 2008 4:00 am

Hello all,

This seems like a great resource, I'm glad I found it.

I am headed out to Sing and expect to be there for at least 3 months (US citizen).

I am looking for cheap, safe, clean living quarters (furnished) in a decent area. I'm not that familiar with Singapore, but it would be ideal to be fairly close to downtown.

I know there are a number of luxury serviced aparts listed on various sites, but these are way out of my budget. Furthermore, most of these place list multiple beds and baths, when I only require a simple studio.

My priority preferences:

- Studio
- Reasonable price
- Furnished
- Internet access
- Decent / clean / safe location

Any suggestions?

Many thanks in advance all.

for 3 months, it will most probably be Service Apartment. most long term apartments are minimum 1 year tenancy contract.

have a look at www.thehotelalternatives.com. not quite Service Apartments, more like service "room". what you are renting is a room in a condo. you can either rent the ensuite which has a ensuite bathroom or the normal room with share bathroom. you get a shared kitchen as well.

most of the "luxury" serviced apts are out of my budget, hence my post.

anyone else?
