13 Best Serviced Apartments In Singapore For Both Short Stays & Long-Term Rentals

Serviced apartments in Singapore


With the rental prices hitting new highs 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.


What should I look for in a serviced apartment?


Since you’re going to be living there for a good few months, you’ll want to make sure that your new home fully accommodates your lifestyle. Here are some factors that you should consider before committing to a serviced apartment.


Location


Even if you’re not in real estate, you’ve probably already heard the golden rule about property: location, location, location. Singapore has an excellent public transport system, so it doesn’t really matter where you stay. But if you don’t want to spend a good portion of your day commuting, then somewhere nearer the places you frequent would make more sense.

That said, properties nearer the CBD are likely to cost more than those in suburban areas.


Amenities


Serviced apartments differ from regular apartments for rent solely on the services they provide on top of accommodation. Think of it as a hotel but with more homely amenities like in-built kitchenettes. Similar to hotels, they are also usually fully furnished and include WiFi, housekeeping, and concierge services. You might even find facilities like swimming pools, sports courts, and conference rooms at certain serviced apartments.

Before you start renting, it’s a good idea to take note of what’s included in your stay. You don’t have to rent a place with all the bells and whistles if you won’t even be utilising them.


Space


Consider the size of the apartment and the number of rooms that they have, and assess whether the apartment has enough space for you. Parents with kids may want to get a multi-bedroom apartment with a larger space. Meanwhile, if you are only renting for one person, then perhaps a studio apartment will be a better option for you.


What is the minimum stay for serviced apartments in Singapore?


Most serviced apartments require a minimum stay period ranging from a week to a month. By law, all Singapore serviced apartments must have a minimum stay of 6 nights.


How much does a serviced apartment cost in Singapore?

Who are serviced apartments good for?


Serviced apartments are ideal for those seeking temporary accommodation, such as expats, those whose flats are undergoing home renovation, or those in search of a new home. These apartments offer the convenience of hotel-like services coupled with the comfort of a personal space.

However, if you have a specific interior aesthetic that you really like, then serviced apartments may not be the best fit for you, as you won’t have many opportunities to remodel your flat to your own preferences.

That said, even if major renovations aren’t an option, you can still personalise your apartment by adding interior decor or undertaking non-invasive projects to create a cosy and homely atmosphere.


What is the difference between a serviced apartment and a hotel?


Most serviced apartments typically offer a larger space than hotel rooms as they are more fully equipped for an extended stay.

Additionally, the kitchens usually have a full-sized fridge and freezer so you can properly stock up on your groceries without worrying about running out of space.

There’s also an in-unit washing machine and dryer provided for you to do your laundry whereas most hotels would require you to use their laundry services.
