We had previously checked into the 81 Bencoolen, for its convenience, pricing and location, but were uncomfortable. We trotted it up to YWCA Fort Canning Lodge to have better accomodation at a slight premium over the previous booking (S$235.00 for a standard twin-bedded double room). The staff at the reception were very accomodating and we stayed there with our two... More

The location is OK...but a bit difficult to explain this hotel to the taxi driver. The standard room size is OK...but the room smells bad and the aircon is quite noisy...the toilet size is a bit small. But it is still acceptable for a hotel in Singapore, a beautiful and enjoyable country.

I had a 5 night break whilst on business in the far east and decided to go and visit a couple of friends in Singapore, travelling alone for this part of the trip made me decide to opt for the security of the YWCA, cost was also a factor as I was having to pay for this myself. The location... More

For mid budge range of accommodation the YWCA is great. The food was nice as well as most of the staff. Rooms were a nice size, but the whole building is non smoking. The lodge is close to trains, which made accessing the city or Sentosa island easier. Nice place to stay. The pool is located on the 3 floor,... More

We spent 3 days at the fort canning lodge. The hotel is budget hotel and reasonable. The good thing about the hotel is location just at the end of Orchard road, trains 5 mins walk and central to little india, china town. Although found out a free shuttle bus service operates down the road. The breakfast was basic and dining... More

Would definitely stay here again and recommend it. Its a very basic hotel. Our room was simply twin beds with a bathroom/shower ensuite. For the price we paid, it included a full buffet breakfast and it has also has a pool which is unusual for a hotel in this price range. One morning we had to catch an early flight... More

I was having an absolutely horrible experience. Our reservation could not be found. The staff and manager were not assisting us properly and were very rude. When their credit card reader could not process our credit card, we could not cancel and was forced to pay using cash. Otherwise they will still charge us 25% of the whole stay. Avoid... More

My husband and i have stayed at Fort Canning as part of our pre/post Star Cruises (w/c is awesome!) honeymoon. The frontdesk is accommodating, but you can see from their lobby that the hotel has been for ages. It obvious from the furnishings. But regardless of that, the hotel is tidy. Rooms are liitle bit spacious but nothing extraordinary. Its... More
