I really enjoyed my stay in this restored boutique hotel in a park oasis in busy central Singapore. I visit Singapore regularly for business and usually stay in one of the major 5 star hotels. This time, I chose Hotel Fort Canning for a change and was delighted. The setting is beautiful - how wonderful to have an outlook of trees - and it was only a 5-10 min taxi ride to my work at SunTec city. Taxis were always available - and (contrary to some other reviews) drivers knew exactly where the hotel was. I absolutely loved: the bathroom (fantastic bath!!), room decor (fabulous bed/bedlinen/pillows), the in-room Nespresso machine (yes!!), the complimentary evening canapes and drinks, the pools, the very friendly, helpful, efficient reception staff, and great breakfasts (really good bircher muesli with grated apple, as it should be, and especially good made-to-order omelettes. I missed: turndown service! I didn't like: the muzak everywhere - too loud, not in keeping with the peaceful park setting, room service pizza served in a box with no cutlery or napkin (very odd and inconvenient), some tacky decor here and there, slight 'musty' smell in the hallways, the lighting/air controls are super modern but quite hard to operate. All up, however, - a great find in Singapore and highly recommended.
