Serviced apartment

Post by Alexei » Sat, 25 Apr 2009 11:38 am

Hi,

My wife and I are moving to Singapore from NY early June.
My company will pay for a Serviced Apartment for a month but it looks like our furniture will not make it within a month (probably 2 months).

I had a look at the serviced apartment my company is paying for and I can definitely not pay for it for the second month (so expensive!).

I found 2 websites for which I would need some feedbacks:

- the Platinum at Chinatown & Sophia Ville at 128 Sophia Road
- value stay in singapore

Thanks for your recommendations!

Hi Alexi,
Have you thought about renting furniture until your furniture arrives?
My husband, daughter and I moved to Singapore from Melbourne Australia 4 months ago and I am not working in Singapore at the moment, so I am happy to help you with any information or settling in issues. I have the 'phone no of a very good agent and I have also mastered the public transport, so am happy to show you how that works if you need.Where are you looking to live?We are currently living on the East Coast.

We stayed in an empty apartment for a month waiting for our stuff to arrive. Just bought some mattresses a couple of bean bags, a few pots and pans and lots of paper plates and cups. All the laundry was being dealt with a laundry butler, who came twice a week.

It was good fun, felt like camping, now the house is so stuffed full of junk, would give my left leg to go back to the empty minimalist pad.

Also as you have just arrive you will spend most of the time outside exploring the city.

Yeh we rented furntiure also. It was kind of like camping out - plus it gave us the time to fully clean our apartment. happy to post the name of who we used - they were very helpful and very reasonable.

Cheers, Mr. P

There is at least one furniture company that does rentals in my links page. If Mr. P & QRM were satisfied with their providers of rentals, I'd like to have them as well to add to the list for future readers. The only way a commercial company makes it to the list is from recommendations from satisfied readers here.......... :wink:
