“peaceful and large exotic hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very modern and luxury room in the unique and exotic hotel, which had been one of Singapore historical place. The cannon, the British command center, old cemetery, and many historical icon combined with the luxurious of the interior of hotel room. the automatic curtain, all marble floor, separately wooden living room, and the unique bathroom/bath tub which placed next to the bed gives a sensual touch for the guest.

Room Tip: choose the executive room

We liked the hotel very much. The evening drinks was very nice... the staff were very attentive.
Breakfast was also nice, but it was a bit crowded unfortunately. Overall experience staying at HFC was great. It was a quiet oasis in a quite busy city.

My friend from KL, Malaysia booked the hotel which was on a very special offer. I flew in for a one night stopover to rendevous with her before continuing my journey. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly & attentive staff. I love the location of this hotel surrounded by a beautiful park & very close to the main shopping areas plus the underground rail service. During the afternoon complementary coffe & tea facilities plus biscuits, apples & chilled water are provided in the guest lobby. In the evening complimentary drinks & canapes are provided in the same area - such a lovely touch & a nice way of meeting other guests. My father served with the British army in WW2 and I remember him speaking of Fort Canning - so it was wonderful to roam around grounds where he once was.
Our room was a excellent size with a nespresso machine & modern restful decor with a spacious well thought out bathroom... The bed and pillows made for a wonderful nights sleep..
The breakfast in the new Glass House provided a wonderful selection of foods - again the staff were very helpful & attentive...
Also we had an excellent dinner in the Italian restaurant - I had spaghetti & fresh seafood. The swimming pools looked very inviting but we had no time. I would definately recommend this hotel & will definately stay there next time.

Room Tip: We had a corner room on the 3rd floor - I particularly liked the fact that you could have AC on or o...

Dear guest,

I am glad your friend booked your room with us at Hotel Fort Canning as you could reconnect with a place your father spoke about when he was in Singapore during WW2.
It's great to hear about all the little details you noticed during your stay and that our team was friendly and attentive.
I am delighted to read that your overall experience with us was excellent, that our restaurants were both great, and that our room provided you with all the luxurious comfort you deserve.

Thank you from the team and I,

Franck

After much deliberation, my wife and I chose this hotel for a six night stay in Mid August. We were not disappointed. We loved it !!!. Right from the first moment of our arrival the staff were just fantastic ... really. After check-in we went down for the evening drinks, and found this to be a winner. Easily mixing with other guests, or just a quiet time to ourselves in a peaceful setting. Our room was terrific, .... breakfast was great and plentiful. It was lovely to unwind after busy days in the relaxing setting of Fort Canning Park Hotel. Will definitely stay again. A week was not enough in this hotel.

We stayed in Singapore only one night and one day but it was enough to appreciate this hotel. A big room, with a nice design and a nespresso machine. The bathroom is quite big with bath tube and shower.
We can also make a shower before to leave . The personnel was very kind and give us also suggestion to visit the city. The location is good ,peaceful because is in the park but with ( min walk you reach Orchard Road and Dolby gauth MRT Station.

Stayed at the Hotel Fort Canning for originally we thought for 1 night with wife. Fell In love with the place and ended up staying another two nights over the weekend, and suggesting some Indonesian friends stay with us as well.
The location, facilities, food, service and ambience of the hotel together with the friendliest of staff in any hotel in Singapore (and have stayed at most of the majors) was second to none.
Made for a wonderful few days stay combining business and some well needed rest and a little fun thrown in in the nearby well known Singapore entertainment and shopping facilities.
The integrity and honesty of the staff is beyond question as my wife left items in the room which were collected by the staff and we were advised of this oversight. A business associate will collect and return them to us in Jakarta in the week.
I have stayed in may hotels around South East Asia, and this is one of the best. Location, Heritage style building and great service from the team at the hotel made for a wonderful experience.

Room Tip: Ask for the Premium Room which has the extra space for business desk etc

We love your story regarding the extension of two more nights during your stay with us.
We truly appreciate that you enjoy "the location, facilities, food, service and ambience of the hotel together" and also extremely excited about your comment regarding "the friendliest of staff in any hotel in Singapore (and have stayed at most of the majors) was second to none". Truly thank you.

I am so glad our housekeeping team retrieved your left items from the room and that our lost and found department together with our front office team will hand over the items to your business associate.

Thank you for your excellent review,
