Serviced apartments in Singapore


With the rental prices hitting an all-time high and hotel rates soaring, we bring you a third option that may have slipped your radar – serviced apartments. Now you may be wondering what edge these apartments have over flats and condos for long term stays; as well as over hotels for shorter stays.

Well, serviced apartments are generally easier on the wallet in both instances. However, they do require a minimum stay period ranging from a week to a month. They also come in various housing options from heritage shophouses to resort-style residences and 2-storey penthouses.

Here are the best serviced apartments in Singapore.


1. Thanksgiving Serviced Residence – Fully furnished & pet-friendly
