Exit glass door to car park, turn left & walk out from the car park bay, cross the road and you’ll find yourself at the foot of Fort Canning Hill. Keep to your right and walk towards the entrance to the Hotel / Club’s indoor car park. On the path way, the staircase is the direct access into the Ballroom area/foyer or all the way up to the Hotel Lobby & Palm Terrace (outdoor marquee). Alternatively, you may also take the Lift inside the carpark up to Level 2 (Hotel Lobby & Palm Terrace).

                      The toilet door when closed made the toilet very small. The airconditioner was too noisy when on the lowest setting. The air temperature generally through ou the lobby and corridoor was unecessarily cold in these days of waisted energy.

                      The location is an oasis of quiet in the hustle of downtown Singapore. Deluxe rooms (with the separate bathroom) are excellent and overall, the conversion of a period building into a hotel works well.

                      The dining room is in a separate building "the glass house" which is functional but not very attractive and has difficult access - particularly for the disabled such as my partner

                      The staff at Hotel Fort Canning were always helpful, friendly, courteous. A standout was Cielo at Reception. I'd go back just for her--don't let her go!

                      Found the room air conditioning difficult to manage. Function supposed to increase/decrease temperature would not change.

                      The view from my room. The entrance areas are stylish and attractive. The staff are courteous and helpful.

                      There are some problems with the layout and function of the rooms. As the hotel is new, I took the trouble to explain these to reception when I left. Also, I think it would be helpful to have a pictorial set of instructions for the coffee machines in the rooms for those who are unfamiliar with these machines. It took me some time to work out how to use it, even after the brief explanation I was given on arrival. The air conditioning blows directly on to the bed area so it is hard to be at a comfortable temperature for sleeping. You should have a proper computer/s for guest use: people on holiday probably do not want to cart laptops around.

                      I like the setting of the hotel right next to the Fort Canning Park. The overall atmosphere is comfortable and natural. The swimming pool is nice for kids and the staff make you feel like home. Also, the snack bar opened to the hotel guests is a very good idea and it provides cold drinks which is very important for the hot summer in singapore.

                      I don't know why but we cannot adjust the air conditioning and it was always kept at 22 or 21 degree. As the hotel location is a bit far from the mrt station, shuttle bus service shall be strengthened.

                      The situation of the hotel in Fort Canning Park in the middle of a city made it relaxing , easy to go for a walk in the park or sit under trees reading yet walking distance of Orchard road for shopping , also easy to walk to City Hall shopping and down to Clarke Quay riverside for food etc.

                      Many Taxis do not yet seem to know of it as it used to be known as The Legends night club and people not familiar with Singapore may get taken for a ride. I wasn't because knowing Singapore I and my wife shouted at the taxi driver when he went off the direct route. Noisy air- conditioning in the room.

                      clean, comfortable room, good service, nice park nearby the hotel

                      Location is not good, it takes me nearly 20 minutes to walk to the nearest MRT station. Catching a cab by yourself is impossible, the only thing you can do is calling taxi service and waiting 15 minutes for a cab, or waiting somebody who coming to the hotel and you catch that cab.

                      The service is superb. We couldn't get a cab on a rainy day and the hotel concierge, In, sent us in the hotel van to the place we wanted to go - Gleneagles Hospital. It was an extra treat when I requested for late check out and within only a minute, I was told it was ok. That was a great help for us because my husband was not feeling well and our doctor appointment was at 4pm. I was taken by surprise that there is free cocktail hour for hotel guests plus unlimited supply of drinking water in our room.

                      Many taxi drivers do not know this hotel. It is also a little far off from main road.

                      The rooms were very nice and the design was nice. The very few staff were resourceful and nice.

                      Ridiculously low manning of staff. The management of this hotel must realise if it intends to live up to a 5 star standard it must have proper number of staff.

                      The location is wonderful as it's in the middle of Fort Canning Park. The hotel is at a human scale with only 3 floors. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Even though the location feels rural you are a short walk into Singapore.

                      Stayed at the suite for a night - had great designs

                      Something was wrong with the lighting system for the room. resulted in lights automatically turning on and off (in 5 min intervals) for the entire night. couldnt sleep well as a result

                      Best services & a very comfort room.

                      It's a bit far away from MRT station, the nearest is dhoby ghaut.

                      1, Most pleasant and helpful staff. Absulutely quiet (at our request) room, spacy and luxy.2 Backside rooms to be avoided: much outside noise and music.
