Everything was as expected, plus a little more! My girlfriend and i love the room, a lot of attention had been spent on details, from the clean showers, deco, and tips around the house to make you feel at home! Host was very responsive, and catered to hour needs promptly. Highly recommended!

We like our stay in Singapore at Fang Wei and his friends' Inn. The Shophouse accommodation is a very special and culture-rich experience for us. The locations are top with a lot of night life and delicious food stalls. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Further more, we had a very good communication with the host all the time. They have an eye for details and showed us they care about their guests' well-being. Thanks! :-)

A very nice place to stay. We enjoyed the stay. The location is great as it is close to a number of restaurants and local breakfast options. Don't forget to bring your own toothpaste and toothbrushes; and it would be helpful if you bring your own towel as well.

This place is very useful, comfortable, pretty and classic appearance. And you don't need to worry about your breakfast, lunch and dinner, because there are a lot of restaurants around there. The host booked the taxi for us when we go to the Changi airport, since we didn't know how to book it for our early morning flight. That was very helpful for us. We could reach to the central easily by MRT and the nearest station is accessible by foot (7-8 min.). There are a clean bathroom, a big kitchen and a laundry. I felt a little noisy outside when I sleep, but if you don't care about this, I highly recommend this place for your great experience.

Fang Wei User Profile

I love exploring the planet, learning different cultures and discovering new places. I gave up my finance career in 2015 to pursue a lifelong dream: to travel the world full time. To support myself, I rent out my apartment on Airbnb. It's been a great experience, from the countless varieties of street food and plentiful late night philosophical discussions with other travelers.

I enjoy meeting people from different parts of the world and I look forward to connecting with you as a host or traveler. I will do my best to make stay as comfortable as possible or being a good guest, depending on my role.
