Gorgeous, historic hotel with good facilities in the heart of lush fort canning park. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the pool is fantastic and the breakfast choices are varied. It's my fourth time staying here. Every time is as enjoyable as the last, which is why I keep coming back.

Stylish hotel in park setting. Elegant hotel, offering a distintive character. Staff efficient and friendly. Deluxe room could use a little more lighting and a few more power points.

Lovely hotel. Situated in a quiet park, it is central and elegant. The pools are very nice. The breakfast is excellent, with plenty of Asian and western food. The only thing that could be improved is the soundproofing to the corridors. Not that there’s much happening there, but one hears everything that goes on. The staff were very helpful and tried to assist in every way. The happy hour is a good way to meet fellow guests and exchange stories. I’m not sure what room to recommend. They’re all good. I had a premium room , which was very spacious. It was on the park side, which is a very nice view but a bit darker than the city side. However in the heat that’s not a bad thing. I didn’t need the aircon at night, and the small bottom windows in the closed-in verandah could be opened. I will be staying here again when I’m in Singapore.

Beautiful setting, very peaceful

Pros: The pools. The private courtyard. The restaurant
Cons: Toilet privacy..the room was too open plan for our liking. The reception staff could be more attentive.
Location: A little isolated. The surrounding park is beautiful but it is a long way from the attractions of the city but found taxis were generally available
Lovely setting in the middle of a beautiful park. A little away from the city. The room had a very strange set out... a bathtub in the middle of the room and a toilet that lacked privacy. Two beautiful pools. The room had French doors to a private courtyard. It was a little difficult to get immediate attention from the reception staff. The restaurant was very nice and the staff wonderful.

Relaxed graciousness

Pros: The location near the Fort Canning Park and the grand historical ambience
Cons: a music channel on the TV.
Location: We like to walk so it suited us walking through the Fort Canning Park and into the city for shopping, meals and transport MRT/buses.
The hotel atmosphere was very welcoming, gracious with very helpful and professional staff

We have stayed here before and also our kids

Pros: Just love the feeling that there are people who really have time for you like the concierge advises on taxi fares etc. The gardens beautiful
Cons: no
Location: Near a good shopping centre and usual good eating places for kids and adults
love this hotel. Old wordly and not too americanised. Not that that matters but it also has the feeling of Singapore as it used to be and at the same time sayes modern. Staff fabulous and helpful. wonderful pools one is for enjoying and the lap pool is for the real swimmers. Great place recommend it.

Small luxury hotel in the park in the CBD

Pros: Location, small size and comfort.
Cons: Signage for taxi drivers!
Location: Great for walks/jogging.
Comfortable room and excellently prepared food in their one restaurant. The key differentiator is location. The hotel is in the centre of Singapore close to Orchard Road and Museum. It has a leafy outlook and there are great walking paths from reception. The only drawback is signage. Only one of the six drivers of taxis/Ubers could find the way to reception so we had some hard work to do carting cases up long flights of steps.

Pros: Everything
Great way to start your day with a walk through the park and an easy walk to most places in the heart of Singapore.

The best place to stay in the heart of Singapore

What a superb place to stay. Awesome pools. Fab helpful staff. Great bar and restaurant. Perfect setting in the Fort Canning gardens- right in the hustle and bustle but the gardens allow you much needed zen. They even worked out my birthday and I got a cake!! And the bar stayed open later than normal. Just brilliant. And colonial building so you feel steeped in history - much nicer than a modern soulless place. 6 STARS!!!!!
