Need to find a good, clean, comforatable and central place for 2 months. Preferably close to MRT and fun place for a 4 year old.
Thanks

You may want to check out Lanson Place:

They are centrally located, have all the facilities you can ask for. Just ask them about special rates as they are approx. 25% lower than the official rates on their website.

I stayed there for 1 month and would not hesitate to come back if I had to.

There seem to be many young families in the Great World City Serviced Apartments.

I've checked out quite a few Serviced Apartments in areas that were of interest to me (basically the only areas I wanted to live in):

- Park Avenue Suites (UE Square)
- Fraser Place Robertson Walk
- Regency House
- Lanson Place
- Pan Pacific Serviced Apartments
- Somerset Clarke Quay
- Citadines

I've seen 2-3 apartments at each place and my honest conclusions were that Park Avenue Suites stood above the rest in terms of location and the quality of the apartments.

When I saw the units there I thought to myself, wow, if I get a good deal here then this will be my #1 choice. What you need to see are the apartments at the very end (southern-facing) of each corridor on every floor. They are superb in that they have a panoramic, 270 degree view - you have windows on all 3 sides (west, south, east)! Great views - try and find that elsewhere. The decor is very nice as well and you have carpeted floors everywhere (except for the bathroom and kitchen), so perfect with a kid that likes to run around and practice kiddie gymnastics around the place.

When I was looking around this place was a class above all the other places I checked out. I'm here until the second half of May but will definitely move in again if I choose to remain in a serviced apartment upon my return.

Has anyone heard or read reviews for the The Wilby-Bukit Timah Serviced Apartments?

Thanks for the reply Februus. As I'm new to the forum, I'm restricted from using the PM feature. I have basic questions: Is it clean? Would you recommend it to others? How accommodating is the staff? Is it family/pet friendly? Lastly, would you book it again?

Thanks!

We have booked a place called Leonie View. It was cheaper than Great World and also accepts pets. Close to Orchard. Not sure about facilities for kids (other than a pool of course).

Thank you Kindcare! I know where Leonie View apts are (lived in Spore from 97-01). Would prefer not to be in CBD due to long school commute & am finding nearly all serviced apts reside here. Other than The Wilby, are there other serviced apts north of town?

Hi Mrscappy,

I haven't been to Wilby Bukit Timah yet but I stayed for one month in Wilby Central last year. Currently Wilby Central is under renovation and is definitively a place for singles instead of families with kids.

However, I just can say the support from their administration was very good. Move-in and move-out was smooth, security deposit was returned as promised. The apartments are clean and the staff was friendly. They were also quite flexible in postponing move-in and move-out days.

Hope this helps.

MRSCAPPY and FEBRUUS....I'm curious as to the response regarding Wilby Bukit Timah (and I don't have enough posts to PM yet). We're looking at it as a place to camp for a couple of months while we look for a place that meets all our needs. Biggest questions are is it kid friendly, does it allow pets (i.e. a cat), and how effective is its bus?

Not going into detail here, if you want a full answer, you will need to PM me.

Overall, i have had no problems, staff are very good and there seems to be lots of kids enjoying themselves round the pool. Bus is fine, easy to get to town, but its quite a long ride. if you want convenience for the city i suggest looking there rather then bukit timah. no idea about pets.

Hi idterps: Sorry I haven't replied to your msg; trying to wrap things up here in the states & have been off the computer. Like you, I'm new to the forum & can't PM yet. Hubs checked out the Wilby & thought it was very nice but no availability (at least no 2 bdrms available). Still looking for a place....
