Great World Serviced Apartments
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 January 2012

staying short term or even several months at GWSA is very convenient, centrally located, high quality of cleaniness and also well secured. Possibility to use the shuttle at eight in the morning to the financial district or two other main destinations. I can recommend the pool and also the other facilities as well as the friendly personnel. Shopping mall with a good grocery called cold storage is around the corner, access by the carpark.
good connectivity to Orchard, Chinatown and City hall by free shuttle bus.
Kitchen is well equipped. I can recommend the Great World in all aspects.

Stayed there recently and the service by staff at all hours was attentitive and excellent. Lots of food options within easy walking distance.

Public transport and taxi's easy to get from both the hotel and Great World Plaza complex with a taxi rank on Zion Rd side for heading into town and Kim Seng Rd sice for heading to the financial district. Also there are the regular shuttle buses to Orchard Rd, Chinatown and Raffles Place MRT.

Would also recommend the 10- 15 min walk to the Tiong Bahru Market where you will see part of Singapore that is fast disappearing. It's only on in the morning with fresh vegestables, fruit, meat seafood and flowers. After a walk around try some local Hawker Food on the 1st floor for breakfast.

Like so many others, we stayed here for a month while in the process of moving to Singapore. It is a great way to land; good apartments with great service, nice pools, connected to a great shopping mall. Transport easy and a good location - highly recommended for a short term stay while moving to Singapore.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool

Me and my friend's family recently stayed here and for us this is a great place to stay in especially if you have kids with you. It's truly an ideal home-away-from-home place, where everything is within reach -- there's a grocery at the basement and a shopping mall on the lower floors.

The staff were friendly and attentive. The beds and pillow were truly comfortable and the rooms were really spacious. We especially love the fact that there's a fully-equipped kitchen and we were able to cook our own breakfast.

Highly recommended!
