We ended up staying at the hotel Fort Canning for a one night staycation as the hotel we were originally booked into was undergoing some major building works. Our whole experience was fabulous from start to finish.
The location of the hotel is great, close enough to the city but far enough away to feel secluded and peaceful. As we were doing a staycation we actually weren't too bothered about being close to all of Singapore's main attractions but just wanted somewhere where we could escape and have a relaxing weekend. Before even stepping inside the hotel you can see that the building is full of history. Inside, the hotel has been beautifully restored and is modern, whilst still managing to retain its old colonial charm. Althought there is no spa, the two swimming pools are a nice size and surrounded by lush greenery and the sounds of the birds from the nearby Fort Canning Park which make it a very relaxing place to chill out at.
Our room was lovely with high ceilings and a gorgeous bathroom with views across the park and onto the city. The complimentary drinks and nibbles during happy hour was a nice touch also.
We found the service to be efficient throughout our stay and special thanks must go to Jasmine for organising our booking such short notice.
We would most definitely stay here again ourselves and recommend it to anyone that is coming to visit. Yes, it is a little bit more expensive than some other hotels in the city but we thought our experience far outweighed what we paid.
