“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Stayed in a city view Heritage room which was spacious with more than enough room for an extra bed for my daughter, which came fully made up with a bag containing extra towels, toiletries, dressing gown and water. The building itself is iconic, in a fabulous position with plenty of interest within easy walking distance. I was debating staying in the Orchard Rd area but would definitely stay here again as so much on the doorstep. Don't miss the nightly light show from the new 3 legged building across the river (choreographed by the same person who designed the Hong Kong light show) which is best viewed from near the Merlion, accessed very easily via the underground tunnel from the lobby of the hotel. The hotel staff were extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the breakfast buffet was one of the best I've sampled. I got a terrific deal on the Fullertons' own website ( stay one night get the next free!) which beat any other website on price, so try there first. Also join their loyalty programme (it's free) and you get free fruit etc. It is an expensive hotel but definitely worth the money.

Room Tip: Ask for a city or harbour view then you won't have a room overlooking the lobby where you can...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

I was upgraded to a comfortable but not impressive room by Asian standards (ie a million times nicer than many in Europe or America). Free Wifi, Moulton Brown toiletries comfortable bed and great gym open 24/7 make this a good short term business hotel. I could walk easily to CBD which is another bonus. Comments about state of repair are overdone, my room and corridor etc were clean. Only the comments in state of repair of pool resonated. You could cut your feet if your not careful. I also had a massage in spa, which I would rate as 6 out of 10 at best as was relatively expensive.

This was third stay here and after a while, was impressed that they had all my old records from the previous company and quickly updated same on this visit.

Staff just 5 star, hotel is the old Singapore post office, the rooms are just fab, bed quality is fab, had a junior suite and it was just tops, every detail was thought of, just nothing to think hotel is centrally located ( slightly closer to the airport) and 5 stars all round.

It's walking distance to Clarke quay and the boat quay, hence plenty of lovely eating places and pubs, including night clubs for party animals out there.

The hotel itself has excellent restaurants hence worth trying out, the layout of the hotel is pretty nice and certainly worth a stay.

Will certainly be coming back, years after and they have only got better!

Stayed May 2012, traveled on business

Cozy grand hotel. We stayed at The Straits Club. Comfortable bedding overlooking MBS. Varities of buffet breakfast in the morning...cocktail is served before the entrance of our bedroom at tea time which makes it easier for us...especially when you need a quiet place for a tea break. Lovely view from the upper deck at night which can be arranged. We had tea served by the hotel staff at the lobby waiting area and that was a plus point. Surrounding town area is also within reach by a taxi.

Very nice hotel in downtown Singapore. Staff was very helpful and polite. Take an evening walk along Singapore River. Location is across Merlion Park. Breakfast was excellent with a lot variety; get outdoor seat if possible in order to enjoy Singapore River.
Near Raffles MRT Station, so it is easy to explore. Near Lau Pa Sat hawker center which is one of famous hawker place in Singapore.
Room was very nice and good size; free wifi in room.

the hotel though relatively new has an oldish feeling about it-it is as though you have walked in another time and feel oddly dressed if you are wearing anything less than a tux-gatsby should have lived here -great charm-excellent service-good restaurants except for the postbar which cant decide if it wants to be a hip bar or a cocktail lounge and fails in being either.housekeeping can be a bit of a hit and miss but that's nitpicking if nothing else-stay here several times ans always ask for the room facing the Marina Bay for the exquisite view of the bay and the lightshows you may chance upon.A good stay hotel...

Room Tip: choose the QUAY rooms with balcony-best view

Lobby is grand, breakfast is amazing and big on choices. Staff are wonderful and welcoming. Walk out to restaurant strip, river, bay and business district outside. Very close to Raffles train station so convenient to get around. Rooms are nice but bed was very hard. Rooms with balcony are not worth the money. The balcony is old, grey, no furniture and blocks the amazing view - virtually unusable. Pool area has a nice view to the river but otherwise run down and boring. Tiling around the pool cracking and in disrepair. Used it once then went to the sister hotel Fullerton Bay Hotel down the road and swam in their pool - WOW...incredible best spot in the whole of Singapore! Stay there instead if you can afford it because it is breathtaking 5 star luxury but give the Fullerton a miss as there is better value in Singapore.

Room Tip: Don't get the balcony room. Balcony is almost unusable
