“Excellent location and good facilities”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

I stayed in Fairmont Singapore with my mother and daughter on our way back to Myanmar from Bali. We spent two nights there.
The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable.
We found the location superb as it was directly connected to a shopping mall where we can have different varieties of restaurants.
Daily rate was also reasonable in comparison with other hotels from similar grades.
The only downsize of the hotel was despite 5 star hotel, the internet service was not free of charge.
If I have a chance to come back to Singapore, I would go back to Fairmont again.

Once again I am back at Fairmont. Rooms are getting a bit dated but still a nice and clean hotel.

Great location as usual. Prices are quite reasonable considering it's location and standard. Rooms are pretty big and comfy.

The hotel lobby is going through some renovations at the moment, but it wouldn't really affect the patrons as most works are done at night.

Breakfast spread at Prego is extensive with plenty of options :)

We spent couple nights in Fairmont.
We had a great view to the Marina bay and the room was really nice. Also the location and the MRT access was excellent. The gym was well equipped. The pool was nice but there were not enough sun beds for everyone. Also negative we found the facts that there was no breakfast included neither free wifi although the room price was very high. The lobby area was currently under costruction which did not give you a 5 star feeling when entering the building.

Stayed 3 nights after a cruise. We arrived around 930 AM and were checked in immediately. We got a complementary upgrade to the club floor which included free breakfast and happy hour from 5-6pm. The breakfast had a nice variety and the happy hour included enough food to make an early dinner. The room was large and modern with nightstand controls for lights and drapes. A nice soaking tub in the bathroom and rain shower. The location was great, attached to Raffles City Mall. HOHO bus across the street, which we used for sightseeing. Join the Presidents club and get free wifi.

Room Tip: Don't know why they gave us a free upgrade, but club floor is worth paying extra

Stayed recently and also had meetings there. Great stay in a very well located spot. the executive floor services were brilliant and made almost everything hassle free. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed. Staff were accomodating and the cardio machine selections was one of the best I have seen in a hotel. If there was a complaint then it would be about the "wet room" concept shower area where the splash back from the shower gets into the main bathroom. The concept doesn't really work and a regular shower stall would be more sensible. Will be back,

Room Tip: Room on a higher floor facing the Singapore Flyer....great views.

This hotel has amazing location. I took train from airport and i didn't even have to change station. The hotel is directly above city hall station, which is one of the major station in singapore.

There were 2 hotels on the same location (don't go to the wrong lobby)
The location has a small mall with food heaven on basement. I would suggest to skip the breakfast. The food are just soo good downstairs. They have lots of choices with many restaurants around

When i stayed there, the hotel was having renovations (it looks outdated. even you can tell from the room)

The room is big, bed is comfy. I kinda having trouble with hot water though. Had to wait a little bit. Otherwise everything would be perfect

I visit Singapore about twice a year and tried a few hotels but this is the first time staying at fairmont.

Plus:
Location: The hotel is located just above the city hall mrt (subway) station which is one of the mrt hub in the city. You can reach here from the airport straight without changing lines which will take approximately 30 min and cost around $2. Its just 3 stops away from orchard road which is famous for shopping.

Conveniences: nothing beats the convinieces of staying here as the hotel is located above a pretty high end mall. All types of restaurants for different budgets are available. Supermarkets and bookstores also. 5 minutes walk to funan IT mall. Top to bottom fill with computer and gaming stores.


Guest services: nothing too complain here. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Check in time is 2pm but they are kind enough to allow me to check in around 10:30 as there are rooms available. As for higher floor to see better view of this city. Gym are open 24 hours a day. Breakfast serve wide variety of western and asian cuisine and they are pretty good, but my recommendation is not to take the breakfast package if possible and explore the local food just 1 floor down from the lobby.

The hotel rooms: the hotel definetely showing its age. Which is the reason for the renovation of the hotel lobby while i was there. The room itself is big with excellent bed and pillow. Lcd screens and nespresso machines makes the rooms feels more up to date. But i have issues with the hotel shower. The water pressure is good and strong. But i think there might be a problem with the water heater as it takes nearly a minute for the water to get hot. The following day, i need to turn the water to the hottest setting to get any decent heat. Decor feels a bit outdated but thats my personal opinion.

Tip: apply for their president club for free throught their website to get free wifi. But on peak hours, sometimes its hard to log in as many devices battling to get an ip address. Speed is standard.
