This boutique property really surprised our senses, in a really good way. We took our parents on a relaxing short vacation to Singapore recently. Usually, we go for the 'Resort' type of accommodation, but through a recommendation by a business colleague, we went for 'Boutique'. Upon arrival, the entrance was well hidden from the main gate entrance. This was nice and appealing as it did not overcome with the fluster of the usual busy traffic to that of a resort. The classically dressed doorman welcomed us and guided us to the reception desk.
First impressions... Wow. From the stand alone wooden writing desks at reception, to the glass display floor, showing relics from earlier excavations. The reception room sweeps onto a luxurious lounge area with leather loungers available to relax on and with complimentary Nespresso Coffee, Tea, Juice & Bottled water made available to guests.
The suites are a good size, with king bed and all amenities, seperate stone floor bathrooms, stand alone bath tub & wash basin, large shower with rain forrest shower head & WC.
What places this property above others that I have stayed in over the years, is the extent of the 'Automation' in all rooms: Touch Control Panel, to control lights, air-conditioning and all the drapes & curtains. If you do not want to use the touch control, you can control using the television control panel, which also gives complimentary internet & email access. Fantastic.
The restaurant, to which we had breakfast daily, is great, not too crowded, very relaxed.
Overall, we were impressed. Looking forward to our next stay at Hotel Fort Canning

This was a great experience from the start and a different side to the usual singapore hotel. Located within the fort canning parkland it is a peaceful oasis from the hustle and bustle of Orchard Road that is only a 5 minute walk away. The rooms are very spaceous with all the mod cons. The smart tv, chaise lounge and nespresso coffee machine are a really nice touch. The bathroom is the size of some hotel rooms i have been in and very well appointed with a rainshower and a huge seperate bath tub. The large window and high ceilings add to the feeling of space. A blind can be closed by using the touch pad, should you not feel ok about having it open whilst in the bathroom. The bed is the best i have ever slept in. The breakfast served in the Glass House restaurant was great, with the best selection and quality produce. We also dined in this restaurant on the first night and the meal was first class and i thought reasonably priced for a hotel. There are two swimming pools in the grounds surrounded by many forms of seating or lounges. The staff are very friendly. Complimentary tea, coffee, water and juice are available in a lounge area off the foyer all day with wine and canapes also available for a couple of hours in the early evening. Dhoby Ghaut station is a 5 minute easy walk, also a few restaurants the same distance nearby. All round this was an enjoyable stay and i did not want it to end. Would recommend.

very nice hotel, very central and closed to subway, in the middle of the fort canning park which is really nice.
Rooms are not so big but functional.
2 nice swimming pools where you can relax and swimm.
Breakfast : ok but not amazing. The room for the breakfast is less design than the rest of the hotel.
Service good.
Will come back again

Had a staycation here over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The service was great all around, from the frontdesk and bell services, to the glasshouse staff. Probably one of the few places in Singapore where not only are you served with a smile, but with genuinity as well.

As a Singaporean, even Fort Canning is not exactly a familiar place to me, thus I can understand if taxi drivers have a hard time finding the hotel. But after staying there, I realised how convenient it actually is! It's literally a 5 minute walk to the MRT (the hill isn't that steep), and a 10 minute walk to Clarke Quay (this I never knew till the frontdesk staff told me about the quick walk in the park that leads you there in no time). And what makes this hotel special, is that despite its good location, it is still quiet as it is located in a park rather than a busy road. The pools (2 of them) were empty most of the time so it was nice to lounge there without having to fight for chairs, or fear swimming head-on into someone, which is usually the case in big hotels.

The room was modern, clean and very different from the usual carpetted rooms. The floors were parquet/marble and my room over-looked the park! I didn't have that many problems with the controls of the lighting etc, it just took a short while to get used to. Evening cocktails and free Wifi were a bonus.

On the whole a great stay, and I would definitely recommend this hotel to travellers who like quiet retreats and good service.
