Beautiful hotel located in the middle of Fort Canning park, at the heart of Singapore. The rooms are spacious and very elegant, and offer all the comfort sought by couples for a week-end escape. The breakfast buffet is average but do not miss the food served by Gattopardo (also available for dining in).

Just had 2 nights there for a conference held in the Ballroom and I will definitely go back. This place is beautiful. They have done a spectacular job archtecturally, the rooms and function spaces are different and special. New hotels have pokey little rooms no matter what you pay for them but these are high ceilinged, generously proportioned and quite unique in their arrangement of space. I loved the bathrooms! If you like architecture try this place. I read some of the negative reviews (because of course we all do!) and I wouldn't say they were totally wrong, there is always room to improve, but none of them impacted my overall good experience of HFC. Yes, the door handle in room 2009 drooped too but the thing is it didn't matter (the doors open by pushing anyway), and yes, the taxi drivers do sometimes find it hard to locate but that's not the hotel's fault. I went to several locations in Singapore that the drivers found hard to locate. I blame the taxi company, not the hotel for that. It's not a huge hotel so maybe not that many people have taxi'd up there and it is nicely secluded, but that's a PLUS which I loved. Instead of approaching off a traffic-filled street you rise gently up a wooded hill and arrive in a peaceful oasis overlooking all those other noisy hotels. But don't think it's isolated, it isn't. You can easily walk down the steps and across to Orcahrd Road in no time and taxis always arrived within minutes of being called, no different from other Singapore hotels in that sense.

I found the service happy and smiling, check in and out was smooth and friendly, front door was double-manned much of the time to welcome guests and call cabs, the conference seemed to run VERY smoothly to the outside observers' eye and all-in-all I couldn't rcommend this hotel more highly. It's DIFFERENT, it's BEAUTIFUL, and I don't care about that door handle, it had no impact on my stay.

After three weeks holiday in Europe, time to head home to Australia and face reality again (frowny face), so why not have a stop over in Singapore and enjoy the humidity before heading into Australian winter. Although not a frequent visitor to Singapore, we have stayed before in Orchard Road (Hilton) and Clark Quay (somewhere equally as large hotel but can't remember its name). When at Clark Quay really enjoyed walking around Fort Canning. Didn't realise there was a hotel there until looking for accom this time. Read all about it and the proximity yet staying in parkland sounding interesting. So glad we booked and stayed there three nights. Loved the gentrification of all buildings and the conversion from barracks into lovely sized rooms with exceptional bathrooms meant a really enjoyable stay. Two pools were delightful (one a lap pool) and there was a gym (but I didn't check that out as the parklands were there to enjoy). Walkable distance to Chinatown (which I love) and easy walking to the MRT station (although via a carpark) but easy all the same. But the lovely touch to this hotel, was complimentary drinks and canapes around 5-7pm. Delightful. This hotel also had a buffet breakfast included, which was quite rare when I was looking for accommodation. Would definately stay there again and have recommended it already to others.

Don't get me wrong, this is a very good hotel. The rooms are super comfortable and have everything you might need. Its a high-tech ambience, with touch controls for the mood-lighting, curtains, TV, Internet, air-con, etc. I would definitely ask for one of the rooms overlooking the back of the hotel - there can be festivals and events held in the Park opposite which can make it a bit noisy through to midnight. But, being Singapore, its all well controlled and managed so it doesn't cause untoward disturbance.
Breakfast is taken in the restaurant and is buffet style - it can feel busy and crowded - so not always somewhere for a relaxing start to the day. We also eat an evening meal there one night. All OK but the menu is perhaps a bit limited and nothing very special - Singapore has so much more to offer. There is also a Bar and an Italian restaurant in the main hotel building which looks very classy.
We were not impressed with the pool - space for sitting and relaxing was limited and there were very few places to actually sit - only a handful of sun-loungers. Also it was not that pleasant a view from the terrace.
Generally, I felt a bit disappointed, mainly because as a boutique hotel Fort Canning seems to lack character. There are so many really excellent hotels in Singapore to choose from, though I'm sure the Fort Canning will secure its own regular set of followers. For us, however, we shall try somewhere different next time.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room overlooking the park at the rear of the hotel (the other side to the main entrance).
