We have stayed in this fabulous boutique hotel couple of times, as the rates are reasonable and the staffs are warm & friendly. It is a colonial building in a hillside park surrounded by lush greenery, but right in the city centre. A hidden resort but within walking distance to civilization. It's a fairly new hotel to the taxis, just tell them it is in the same building as the former Fort Canning Club.
In-house guests are treated to espresso coffee & tea at the hotel lobby all day, with pre-dinner wine & snacks. One really feels at home here. There are 3 swimming pools with poolside shaded beds. The Glass House Cafe serves both local & western cuisine. My favourite is Curry Chicken - made with fresh coconut milk, and for dessert I picked Tao-suan - a local delicacy.
Housed in period building, the stylish rooms have latest gadgets & facilities. Adding to the lifestyle are the Nespresso machine with free espresso capsules, iPad docking station, rain shower & bathtub by the bed/window. I would say it best caters to the 21st Century travellers for a romantic getaway.
At the same time we felt nostalgic when the room service is delivered in this quaint 'tiffin' carrier (see photo) - reminds one of the good old days.
That's what I call 'Old World Charms'!
