We were here for 8 days back in 2012 when we visited Singapore. We loved our apartment. Good service and good breakfast. The kitchen was extremely helpful since we used to cook Sri Lankan food for our dinner! ;-)

During the peak weekend (just after New Year's) the breakfast room was extremely busy but...
