“A resort in the heart of Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 November 2011

Stayed at Fort Canning for business. I was upgraded to a suite which may have made my experience of the hotel even better than it would have been but this is a fantastic hidden gem in Singapore. So hidden that most taxi driver cannot find it. It opened just about a year ago. The rooms are very modern and functional (although not unusual in Singapore) with views of the park that surrounds the hotel. The staff was really efficient whenever I asked for something. Had room service twice. It is very well presented. You may find the portions a little small. Very quiet room and very comfortable bed.

We stayed here for two nights while at a conference. Being Australian the history of the hotel was very interesting, yet we would never have considered staying here if is wasn't for the conference. Located in a central but quiet location - the gardens are just beautiful to wander through and the spice garden is heaven. Taxis from any shopping area are no more than $10 S. Rooms are a bit cozy but tastefully decorated with all the mod cons. Sitting back in the little sun room's comfy chair watching the joggers go by, looking out over the garden, sipping a lovely g&t from the mini bar (need I say more?). Breakfast was lovely and I really liked the individually cooked to request eggs/omelettes. I had the fluffy light pancakes and the lovely made to order coffee. Restaurant and bar are pleasant and service is of a high quality. A delightful find we would love to go back as a couple and would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants something of tranquility and nostalgia in Singapore.
Best features - the pillows and the gardens.

Set in the middle of Fort Canning Park this lovely hotel is a complete contrast to the general hustle of Singapore. Gorgeous rooms, superbly comfy beds, immaculately clean and although not cheap it is very good value. Free wine & canapes for guests between 6pm & 8pm is a lovely touch. Breakfast buffet is ok but not as good as the rest of the place - best to get there early. Ate in both the expensive Italian - excellent seafood, and the cheaper restaruant which does local food - both very good.

We have stayed in this fabulous boutique hotel couple of times, as the rates are reasonable and the staffs are warm & friendly. It is a colonial building in a hillside park surrounded by lush greenery, but right in the city centre. A hidden resort but within walking distance to civilization. It's a fairly new hotel to the taxis, just tell them it is in the same building as the former Fort Canning Club.

In-house guests are treated to espresso coffee & tea at the hotel lobby all day, with pre-dinner wine & snacks. One really feels at home here. There are 3 swimming pools with poolside shaded beds. The Glass House Cafe serves both local & western cuisine. My favourite is Curry Chicken - made with fresh coconut milk, and for dessert I picked Tao-suan - a local delicacy.

Housed in period building, the stylish rooms have latest gadgets & facilities. Adding to the lifestyle are the Nespresso machine with free espresso capsules, iPad docking station, rain shower & bathtub by the bed/window. I would say it best caters to the 21st Century travellers for a romantic getaway.

At the same time we felt nostalgic when the room service is delivered in this quaint 'tiffin' carrier (see photo) - reminds one of the good old days.

That's what I call 'Old World Charms'!

Room Tip: Get a room that's facing the park. Magnificent views of greenery in the parks with jogging paths...

Stayed for one night only and it was a great experience. Very private, still good access to the city. Room/suite had everything you need incl a Nespresso machine and a jacuzzi. Internet took a while to get up, and the (only) bad part is their 3 star breakfast buffet. Nice to have a 6-8PM happy hour.
