Hotel Fort Canning

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed here for 2 night on a short stopover......Can not fault it.. The Hotel is very modern without ruining the History of it. Could not be in a better location, Set in an absolutely stunning quiet park yet only a 10min walk from the night life of Clark impressed we are booking back for next year

We had a fabulous stay at the Hotel Fort Canning. The room was amazing and spacious , very well designed and huge comfortable bed. The views were great out of the hotel overlooking the park and good location for sightseeing Singapore. The staff were really helpful and made our stay even better. The breakfast was outstanding and we would return again next time we are in Singapore.

Very high quality/price ratio. Green all around the place and very quite even though very near to the city center;excellent restaurant and breakfast. Personnel friendly and professional; swimming pools, SPA, gym. Nice and clean. I will definitely go back there again!!!

I stayed 5 nights for business in March and loved the stay so much returned for a personal holiday/mini-moon in April! The staff were lovely - the escape from the City Hustle and Bustle - love the large rooms - love the relaxed feel about the property - the park on the doorstep. Food and Beverages are reasonably priced .. Love the 6pm drinks that you can meet other guests staying in the property. Will be back as I love this to escape to a natural - relaxed surrounding!

Staff was very friendly , but not attentive enought. 1)We had to remind them several times to bring us “ kimono”. It’s kind of dressing gowns. They forget to leave them in the room after their cleaning up often. 2)The floor under beds was very dusty . Suddenly I droped my cream under my bed.. So I was very disapointed with tonnes of dust. If you ready to have for a long healthy walk to the nearest metro station you can choose that hotel easily. It took us about 25-30 minutes one way only.

Booked for a one night Staycation. Check in was seamless enough, however the room we had booked (Deluxe Garden) left a lot to be desired. Firstly, the room smelled badly of stale cigarettes. Both my wife and myself noticed as soon as we entered the room. When we asked about this we were told that apparently many smoking guests reserve the garden rooms so they can smoke (despite this being a non-smoking hotel) and that the only thing they could do was put a deodorizer in the room. Secondly, the door to the garden was completely jammed, it took a maintenance guy 30 minutes, a ladder and a lot of pushing and shoving to fix it. The phone in the room was also broken. Generally, the room itself was very small and narrow, with a tiny bathroom that I could barely fit into. The garden outside is nice, but while 'private' in the sense that it is only accessible from the room, there is absolutely no 'privacy' as there is only a very thin screen of shrubs between you and a path just outside that was frequently used by staff moving large containers and talking loudly. Dinner in the hotel was very, very average apart from the desserts which were nice. Checkout was smooth. Overall, a nice building in a nice location. But overall very underwhelming experience for a so-called 5 star hotel. Consider other options.

Although the resort may need a refurb it is still beautiful. The rooms were large and very comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent. I have been to Singapore on a number of occasions and wanted to experience something different.

Everything about the experience at this hotel is tops. It is grand while remaining intimate and unique. It gives you that feel of time long gone with all the amenities of a modern facility. The only downside is that you cannot really walk anywhere (or walk back because of the hill). My stay in SG going forward.

Great hotel in the park not good if you don't do steps with it being on a hill. But close to everything public transport walking to sights etc.Room was well maintained nice decor comfortable bed with good quality bedding, nice to have the patio for outside space. My only issue shower glass door didn't seal well enough and left puddle of water on floor, but housekeeping left extra bath mats.

I chose this hotel as it was away from the noise of the city. Set in a lovely area, the only drawback were the steps in and out if you wanted to go anywhere. The room was large but with the bath in the middle of the room, very odd! The toilet just had misted glass to protect privacy, which was useless. Really liked the happy hour and the pool was lovely and warm. Staff were helpful and friendly.
