“Peaceful and yet minutes away from the shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This hotel is beautiful inside and out. Wonderful walking paths, minutes from the shops. The staff was brilliant, nothing was too much especially with me bringing the wrong cable for my phone so they helped me out. Staff were always on hand for any directions or recommendations. Every thing was clean and tidy. Breakfast in the Glass House was lovely. I highly recommend staying at this beautiful hotel.

Dear Ani12,

It was lovely having you stay with us and thank you for this wonderful review!

We are so glad you found the hotel beautiful and you enjoyed the heritage park in which the hotel is set. We are very gratified that we could help you with your mobile phone charger - we understand how easily such mix ups can take place and how difficult it can be without the use of one's personal mobile phone these days.

Thank you for commenting that everything was clean and tidy, and that breakfast was lovely, as these are the things that are important to our guests.

We are most grateful for your high recommendation to other travellers to stay with us and we certainly look forward to welcoming you back to Hotel Fort Canning in the near future!

Best wishes,

Amy

We had a four night stay at the hotel and had a great time. Decor, service and location all contribute to create a fantastic hotel. The staff are extremely helpful, the rooms were comfortable and spacious and the pools were excellent. Would highly recommend a stay in this hotel.

The Hotel Fort Canning offers in my view a stunning luxurious experience out of the hussle and bustle of busy Singapore. Centrally located, yet tucked away in it's only world, the hotel exudes class ! From entrance to departure, you can expect the ultimate in service, whilst treating yourself to the very best on offer to the palate and beverage. The Glass House was my wife and I's favourite, however, Gattopardo, is also of a high quality. We have stayed here four times now over four years, and it is consistently first class.....

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get the Premium deluxe room.... on a higher floor.... They are worth the extra SG6...

The staff are what makes this hotel. They are professional and listen to all your requests. The location is good especially if you want to explore the city away from the temptations of the shops. If you want to be close to the shops then this may not be the hotel for you (though the train station is very close) It is very quiet in fact there were some days that we wondered if there was anyone else staying at the hotel! This is a real treat.
It was lovely looking out your bathroom window and just seeing the lush greenery of the parkland.
I wonder how this hotel will age as you can see a lot of wear and tear. Especially in the bathrooms (paint coming off the bathroom doors and marks down the corridors)
There are a couple of areas for improvements. Only giving one towel per guest and not topping up toiletries like shower gel? Especially when there is no turndown service. I think for the prices you are paying two towels per person is not an unusual request. Though when we asked for extra towels it wasn’t an issue.
The other complaint is the interconnecting doors, in the middle of the night our daughter accidently shut the door. There is no way of opening the door without calling reception. This was frustrating as we couldn’t shut the door for privacy without it being locked! In fact it was annoying as sometimes you do not want the doors open. Every other hotel we have stayed out with our children you can shut the door then reopen it (without calling the hotel staff to reopen it)
The rooms are slightly on the small size. Book a premier or suite then you will be ok!

Room Tip: Request a parkside room and a premier room

Dear PerthHolidaysforever,

Thank you for your staying with us and for your very candid review!

We have shared your very nice comments on the professionalism of the staff, the hotel location, and the park setting with the whole team at the hotel and we have been greatly encouraged - thank you so much!

We also appreciate your feedback on the maintenance of the hotel - we are currently in the midst of repainting all the hotel bathrooms with the right kind of waterproof paint that resists peeling.

As we strive to be eco-friendly, we provide all our rooms with two bath towels, two handtowels and two face towels. We are most happy to provide our guests with more towels should they request them. We also replenish the toiletries daily when we clean the rooms, so we are very sorry if the Room Attendant servicing your room had inadvertantly missed out replenishing them.

The interconnecting doors at the hotel have the added security feature of requiring a key to open them if they are locked or shut to prevent accidentally opening a door to another room. We are sorry that you found this frustrating.

In spite of the above, we hope to welcome you back to Hotel Fort Canning soon!

Best wishes,

Amy

HFC is such a great hotel. Located next to a park in in the center of the city although really quiet. The staff is amazing, were extremely helpful with all my requests. The hotel lobby and rooms were super clean and this is definitely one of my top 3 hotels I have stayed at in the world so far.

Room Tip: King size deluxe room are bigger
