The Fullerton Hotel Singapore
Ranked #21 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 3, 2013

For my girlfriend's birthday I wanted to get the absolute best, and having previously worked at the Fullerton I did not have to think twice about where to get it. Everyone here constantly exhausts themselves to pamper the guests and they stop nowhere short of perfection. The price may be a little high but is definitely very competitive for a 5-star property in Singapore; the value you get is way over the top, both in terms of room, amenities and service. Worth every penny.

Amazing service doesn't only start upon check-in. Way ahead of our stay date Harris from Guest Recognition assisted in preparing our visit and arranged everything to the detail. My girlfriend fell in love with the hotel immediately, and that is to a large part thanks to Harris' fantastic help.

When we checked in the front desk was extremely busy, and the room situation was so bad that we could not be given a room until 3pm - that meant a one hour wait. We were invited to drinks (that is, any number of any drink on the menu!) at the Post Bar, which is just a lovely quiet spot to hang out and relax. In the end, we received an upgrade two categories up from what we had booked, even though our rate was such a bargain it is almost shameful to pay that little for such a hotel at all.

In general, the staff at the Front Office is doing a fantastic job and are eager to help out with anything that may not even come to your mind. Dropping names is fruitless as every single person there is truly amazing; professional, friendly and efficient.

Our room 841 is one of the better Heritage Rooms (be careful when booking this category for some are just terrible and dark while others are just shy of suites) with full-length windows and a terrific view of the Singapore River and Boat Quay, bright and incredibly spacious. Everything exudes understated luxury and the room is packed with more amenities than could ever be used in one night. We had not requested for a newspaper but still received a complimentary Straits Times delivered to our doorstep.

Unfortunately, the pool is only 1.2m shallow, so not quite suitable for the athletic types, and at times quite crowded. But the view from the edge on the Singapore River is fantastic and definitely beats Marina Bay Sands. (Everything at the Fullerton beats Marina Bay Sands...)
When the families are gone it is a great spot to relax after dinner. And if you are up for a different view from a larger pool, don't forget that you are invited to use the roof top pool at the Fullerton Bay Hotel as well!

We spoiled ourselves with buffet dinner at Town Restaurant which is, simply put, amazing and has fantastic value for money. The scope of cuisines ranges all over the world and food is prepared freshly in front of your eyes by master chefs, while the service staff has perfected the skill of anticipating needs and prompt serving (a very rare thing to find in Singapore!) Our seats were outside by the riverside which meant compromising between foot traffic and insects vs. a continuously fantastic view of the city. We truly enjoyed the dinner and can't wait to return for more. Breakfast at the same outlet is also magnificent, with a gigantic spread of food and drinks for every taste available. All is absolute top notch quality.

I have travelled all over the world, and this is honestly the best hotel I have ever stayed at. I wouldn't recommend anything else.

My partner and I spent the weekend at Fullerton and were truly amazed with the level of service that was provided to us. The staffs were well organized and attentive towards our needs. What surprised us was when the hotel sent us a complimentary birthday cake ( as it was my partner's birthday ) and it took us by surprise. We also had the service staff paying us a visit from time to time to ensure that we were comfortable with the room facilities. We also enjoyed the breakfast and dinner at the hotel and we were well served by the staffs at the banquet area. Not to mention that we also had no qualms with the good tasting food. We would definitely come back again!

We arrived late in the day and upgraded to a small suite here, we had a magnificent view of the Singapore Bay straight across to the Marina Bay Sands which dominates the skyline, lovely lobby with colonial style as the hotel was Singapore's original General Post Office, beautiful tasteful rooms with pleasant staff; while the Raffles is a worn out crummy tourist trap - this feels like an exclusive pleasant place to stay, not inexpensive but worth

Had a 3D2N stay starting from 31 May 2013. Reception, Ms Joan Yao, was friendly and professional and upgraded my courtyard room to a postmaster room and pleasantly surprised my children with fullerton kids playkit consisting of a box of crayons, a tiny postmaster bear and a colouring book. the only diff between the courtyard room and the postmaster room was that the former overlook the lobby atrium while the latter (i was on the third floor) overlook the streets. there wasn't much of a view since i was facing the Maybank due to the low level but nevertheless the kids had a good time sitting on the spacious window ledge to look at the people milling on the streets. a bit taken aback at the small size of the room but room was clean, with a huge bath room. Bed was comfortable though I find the pillows too soft. love the fragrance of the compliementary toiletries and the bath tub which allow bath soaks for my children.

Breakfast was good, with plenty of choices e.g dim sum, pastries, vast assortment of cereals, prata, juices, egg station, noodles, fruits, yogurt, porridge etc.

Swimming pool was not big but adequate and overlook the cavenagh bridge and the asian civilian museum, thus you can have a cooling dip. Attentive pool attendant will serve lemon flavoured ice water. oh, you would also be also to use the infinity pool located on the rooftop of their sister's hotel, fullerton bay hotel, something which I would recommend. you will get a fantastic night view of singapore.

Frankly, while I enjoyed my stay, i realised I prefer a hotel with shopping malls that are linked or nearby. While the fullerton hotel is considered pretty central, with raffles place mrt a stone's throw away, I find it a chore to take a mrt just because I need to get food or some snacks. As fullerton hotel is located at Central business district area, only 7-eleven shops are available.

oh, i have to add in that the staff in general are courteous, pleasant and somehow they will miraculously popped up when you are in the queue or when you look lost.

I strongly recommend this hotel. Location is excellent, the rooms are newly renovated and very classy decorated. Perfect bathroom and shower. The swimming pool is not crowded at all and very lovely, the breakfast is extensive and of a very good quality with perfect service. Overall atmosphere is outstanding - from first glance you see that it is a venue with a huge history indeed. Another nice thing is that while staying with Fullerton you have an access to the facilities of the Fullerton Bay Hotel which is nearby. Fullerton Bay Hotel is a brand new, with amazing restaurants and a gorgeous swimming pool facing the famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Fullerton Bay Hotel swimming pool is surrounded by lounge area, but it a little bit downstairs, so guests who are coming for a drink will not disturb your swimming. The Fullerton and the Fullerton Bay are the must venues to stay while in Singapore!

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Fullerton Hotel for a weekend for my birthday. Our room was not ready by 2pm and complimentary drinks were given at the Post Bar. As our room was still not ready by 3pm due to a full occupancy rate, we got an upgrade. The staff were very attentive and the service was fantastic. Very helpful staff i would like to recommend ; Mr Harris Chen. He saw to our every request and was very friendly. Extra towels and other things were sent to the room promptly upon request.
