The Fullerton Hotel Singapore
Ranked #20 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 February 2012

You're spoilt for choice for good luxury hotels in Singapore. But if you want one with a old-fashioned, historical touch, go for the Fullerton Hotel! My stay at the hotel was the highlight of my Singapore stopover.

Entering the building, you are immediately awed by the imposing edifice with the beauty of a bygone era. I literally took a breath as I stepped into the beautiful main lobby (must have been about 5 floors high!) with a fountain leading down to a koi pond.

The breakfast area opens out to an outdoor dining area right next to the Singapore river. The breakfast spread is very cosmopolitan, and has people people all sorts of exotic and less exotic fare in front of you, including some delicious Belgian waffles.

While the infinity pool may not be as large or grand as that of the Marina Bay Sands resort, it has its own charm. You can float on your back admiring the classical architecture of the hotel building (which was a post office in an earlier incarnation) on one side, and the übermodern Singapore skyline on the other.

It is expensive but there are often promotions of various kinds which offer very good value.

I'd highly recommend it.

Awesome luxury hotel in the downtown part of Singapore but close to the fun - Marina Bay Sands Casino, Boat Quay etc. Rooms are large and very luxurious. Bathrooms well equipped with good showers and bath.

For the business traveller, fast broadband and a good workspace.

Probably the best hotel I've stayed at in Singapore. The only flaw was on arrival my non-smoking River-view room turned out to be a smoking room overlooking the road. Staff were very helpful and gave me the room I had booked and gave me a free drink in the bar while it was prepared.

Excellent!

Room Tip: Several reviews show that people don't always get the room they booked. Make a fuss and they wil...

At full price, the Fullerton is expensive but we were on a weekend promotion, which offered good value for money.
The outside is a lovely old building, but the inside has been modernised. We had a Quay room with an excellent view (some of these rooms also have a balcony). Our sons had a Heritage room, which promised "heritage features" but didn't seem to have any and had no view. It was, however, considerably bigger than our room.
Buffet breakfast, never our favourite, was ok, offering extensive choice, and we had no trouble each morning getting a table outside by the river.
The Lighthouse restaurant (Italian) was excellent but is small and needs booking in advance - we got a cancellation

As per most other reviews, hotel is excellent. Applies to staff, food & services. Only one issue... requested extra bed for my kid at time of booking. Took staff over 45mins to bring bed to my room. We checked in at 8:30pm, so would have thought the extra bed would have already been in my room.

This is a lovely hotel in a great location near lots of interesting parts of Singapore and the river.

We were put in a room with no view, but a complaint soon found us in a superb room with river view and doors opening onto a terrace above the great pool.

Staff were very well intentioned, sometimes things did not quite work out right, but they were swiftly corrected

Room Tip: Make sure you specify what you want and complain if you don't get it. The nature of the building...
