“A nice place to stay”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Recently stayed at the Fullerton for a work trip. For me it was perfectly located, a 10 minute walk along the bay to the financial centre. If I were travelling for pleasure would I stay here? Probably not as it's not within close walking distance to shopping centres but that's not a big requirement for everyone and cabs in Singapore are cheap if you wanted to visit the shops. For business it was perfect. My room was large and tastefully decorated, the bed was firm and the pillows were super soft (think your head falling through them - not for me but others like that). The air on was good, it took a long time to get cool but with a large room that's to be expected. I was on the 5th floor and had no view, there was a small courtyard which wasn't very appealing. The pool was great and one of the best features of the property. The buffet at Town was very nice and is quite popular. The staff were excellent, a special shout out to Hazmah the doorman. What a great member of the team he is, always lovely. The hotel also has free fast wifi which is always a bonus as it can be expensive in Singapore. Overall it was a really good stay, just didn't get enough of a wow factor to give 5 stars.

This iconic building was once a post office, and everything about this building is amazing, from the rooms to the staff.
Right from arrival, you are made to feel like you are their only priority.
The rooms are vast, some are bigger than whole apartments I have seen here. We had a short sojourn here last year and didn't have time for tea ,and promised ourselves one on our return.
My husband is Gluten free and emailed to ask if they could accommodate his dietary requirements , they replied within the hour and had us booked in for the following day. We returned yesterday and was not disappointed. Jackson our tea guide was very good, he explained about water temperature, how long to let each tea stand and hour to pour to let the aromas just lift to you. The finger size savoury bites were excellent, and were constantly replenished until you had enough, then the little finger sized pastries and cakes were gorgeous. My husbands gluten free choices were just as appetising, but with more emphasis on fruit and chocolate. None the less he was able to enjoy the experience of high tea with the rest of the family

Stayed here for 3 nights with hubby and baby at the Heritage room - loved it, large windows with GREAT view of the bay ! Big thumbs up for service, did not have to lift the stroller once while I was there thanks to the wonderful staff - did not have to ask for help once either :) ..my baby was given a small teddy upon check-in, lovely gesture, we ended up buying a bigger teddy at the gift shop for our baby :)) ...Love the location, can take my baby for a stroll in the morning at the nearby park with nice historical buildings around it. :) ... A few notes though (1) ramps for strollers and the disabled ? there's only one ramp to the side of the hotel entrance, and it's kinda shabby and "not-very-clean" looking... (2) taxi queue... would be great if management can give priority to babies like at the airport :D we waited for 45' the first time :)) (but we do understand it was "rush" hour then, everybody was going out for dinner or smth :) ..did not have to wait when we checked out :)

My husband and I were very happy with our stay at The Fullerton Hotel. We were in a 2-story Loft Suite, which was enormous -- spectacular two story windows span from the living area up to the bedroom. In addition, there was a little outdoor patio in front of the living room downstairs. The room was nicely appointed and extremely well sound proofed against any traffic noise. As many others have commented, the building exterior and lobby are beautiful, retaining the charm of the grand old post office in which the hotel is located. It was extremely romantic walking along the waterfront at night just outside the hotel. Service was excellent. Big thumbs up!

This is a luxury hotel with a price to match but you get full value for money. Great facilities, extremely attentive staff and top location. The buffet breakfast is extensive and the terrace a great place to start the day. An evening drink on the rooftop offers great views of the light show. Very handy to the MRT so you hardly need the free shuttle.

This gorgeous hotel occupies a stunning quayside position and is actually the former General Post Office building, built in 1928. It therefore retains a period, colonial charm and means the bedrooms are spacious (well they are on the fourth floor!). We stayed in a Heritage Room and enjoyed the Straits Club privileges. Who wouldn't be enticed by an eclectic afternoon tea, evening cocktails and a champagne breakfast? The staff are very welcoming, friendly and highly efficient and nothing is too much trouble for them. The beds are very comfortable and there is a choice of pillows from the Pillow Menu - excellent idea!

There was a birthday party taking place in the fourth floor ballroom. Apart from the music drifting into the Straits Club which was quite pleasant, we heard nothing from our room. However, after the party was over, the staff made such a cacophony of noise pushing trolleys of crockery and glassware up the corridor that at 1am - after two hours of noisy staff clearing up - I was still awake. I cannot believe the management allows this to happen after an event when resident guests are trying to get to sleep (especially when they have an early flight…grrrr!) It is somewhat ironic that the message inside the Pillow Menu reads: "We understand how valuable rest is….". Cue: hollow laugh.

Perhaps Signor Giovanni Viterale, the General Manager, would like to reimburse a part of the nightly rate for each hour I laid awake staring at the ceiling wanting to SCREAM?

Apart from the din made by the staff after the party and the fact that I was incorrectly charged an extra $150 TWICE, it's a grand, majestic, impressive hotel. Just ensure you double-check your bill: it's expensive enough without having to pay for any unwanted extras.

Room Tip: Ensure you ask about the view as some rooms face the inner courtyard so have very limited daylight.

Stayed for a week at beginning of May .Our room was on the 4th floor and included access to the Straits lounge.This is a great area for afternoon tea and later in the evening to have snacks and drinks.This area is small and reasonably intimate;we found it very enjoyable and it became part or our routine.As others have mentioned this used to be a Post office and in changing it to a hotel the rooms don't always connect logically with exterior windows.There is a large central atrium and connections with its sibling on Marina bay from the basement level.
This is a charming building and its attributes grow on you.We loved haven breakfast sitting outside watching the Singapore river and passers bye.The staff were a delight;uniformly friendly and helpful.This hotel is located in the CBD and avoids the frenetic activity of Orchard rd but it's easy to get most places in the city from here.
Swimming pool on level 2 was nice to use after being out in the city and accompanying facilities were well run i.e change rooms etc.Final comment on the small roof top bar with great views of the night lights and laser show from the marina Bay sands opposite.Overall a very nice place to stay.

Room Tip: get access to straits lounge
