I asked Alex if he would consider dropping the daily rate because we were staying for longer than a week - which he did. We ended up staying 5 weeks - whilst waiting for our apartment to be ready - and were very comfortable. We were also upgraded on arrival to a bigger 1 bedroom apartment - so we did not stay in the one featured in the photos. The furnishings in the apartment are high quality - I to buy some of the items but they are probably beyond my price range at present. One day the treadmill shorted out and stopped working – I notified the office staff and it was fixed later that afternoon. In fact whenever i wanted to know anything I would ask the office staff - they were all very friendly. A minor issue was that I cracked (broke) a glass and the replacement I was told was $10.00. I thought that was a bit steep when I could buy it at IKEA for $0.90c – which is what I did. We loved the location, close to 2 MRT stations, hawker stalls everywhere so there was an abundance of good cheap food (no need to cook and if you are vegetarian I could eat for $3.00 a night, meat dishes were around $6.00 - $8.00), shop houses lining the streets - very old Singapore. Apparently this location is near the red light district, not that we saw any evidence, although some locals frowned when they knew where we were staying. I would stay here again and definitely recommend it to others. The other thing that should be mentioned is that downstairs communal area is full of Buddha statues, plants, sitting areas gold fish - this created a lovely ambiance. We often sat down there for meetings, reading books, drinking G&Ts after work. And the cleaner, even though I can’t speak her language nor she mine, we got on well because she is so friendly and very accommodating in that she would come back and clean when it was more convenient for me. We even practiced thank you in Chinese but I still need much more work on my accent!
