Holiday apartments

Postby Jayeff13 » Sat, 08 Jan 2011 7:04 pm

Hi guys,

I have 6 friends coming over to visit in April for a week, I was looking at the idea of getting them in an apartment together for their stay. Does anyone know if such apartments are available? Had a search but can't seem to find anything.

Cheers.

Or you mean like some of these holiday 'chalet' (loose translation of the literal) type things dotted around East Coast, Changi etc.?

Those chalet type buildings (think called Goldkist) on the East Coast are voted as the worst place to stay in Asia according to tripadvisor.

Apparently they are OK if you want to rent one for the day for a beach party but it is not recommended to stay there.

Hi Jayeff,

There are very nice short-term Serviced Apartments which are run like hotels with housekeeping services, so your friends can get all the comforts of a hotel with the space and facilities of a private residence:

Shangri La Serviced Apartments from SGD450 per day

Great World Serviced Apartments from $4,130 per week

Treetops Executive Residences from $430 per day

Here's a list of 5 other Serviced Apartments near town, with April rates ranging from $328 to $696

Hope you find something for your friends!

Is there any site that lists prices on a monthly basis? I know the OP only needs something for a week, but I'm curious if anyone has a comparison when it comes to monthly rates at these apartments.
