Ok first the bad - the hotel is hidden away in a park on a hill, the room smelled a bit of stale air upon arrival and the breakfast could have been better BUT the hotel staff is friendly and engaging, the rooms are beautiful and spacious and they have three pools, although not as large as the pictures on...

I'm not sure why some travellers gave such bad review of the room/hotel. It was almost perfect to me and my husband. Service was good, we even got a call from Housekeeping asking if we need any replenishments of amenities since we chose not to have our room house-kept when they went around. Hotel isn't too crowded to make it... More

Beautiful restored building with a lot of character. Quiet location in the park. Nice pool area that makes you feel like you are in the middle of the park trees. Friendly and efficient staff. Well appointed rooms with very large bathroom.

Hotel Fort Canning was everything all the trip advisor reviews said it was. Loved being in the middle of Fort Canning Park but close to MRT and all other attractions. Very friendly staff and food at both restaurants was good. Lovely old colonial building but very trendy inside. Loved our stay at Hotel Fort Canning.

Hotel Fort Canning is a top-notch 5* boutique hotel - although that isn't saying a whole lot in Singapore, which has more than a fair share of high-end hotels from which to choose...

The hotel is a converted colonial building. As with many hotels in Singapore, it is very centrally located with respect to the main sights and activities in Singapore. What makes this unique is its quiet location- very rare in Singapore, with Fort Canning Park right behind it. Most tourists rave about other 4 or 5* hotels' locations, but in reality... More

This hotel is located within Fort Canning Park, which is like a small botanical gardens. The park is great to walk through, and also has some tourist sites (the Battle Box etc).
