“Been here twice and did not disappoint. at all.”
Reviewed 11 April 2012

This is a luxury boutique hotel.

Nobody knows what that means, believe me. Luxury and boutique does not mix, often.

Puli hotel and Les suites orient in Shanghai are self proclaimed luxury boutique hotels. They are small, the room service menu only has 10 items and they are not 24 hours. The one in LSO certainly wasn't. Their decor are bland, minimalist, often dark and all too 4 star-ish. They often stress the 'service' and 'hospitality' part to cover what is missing in other areas: 5 star restaurants, grand lobby, great gym, great breakfast, and 24 hours room service.

The Fullerton bay hotel is the first one to prove that a luxury boutique hotel does exist. The design of the hotel itself emit an aura of luxury. The all glass windows and walls, the chandelier, the small details, this is luxury without the quirkiness and tackiness of a 30 something designer.
The service is excellent, from salam the doorman to rozy the concierge, the cleaners (who always replenish your nespresso capsules), room service, everyone. The menu, although a bit limited, does have a few delicious items on it.

The Location and the View are the main reasons you should choose this hotel. The view comes from the location. It is sandwiched between two cafe and restaurant complexes, fullerton one to the left and customs house to the right. In front of the hotel, stands Marina Bay Sands which you can easily walk to. Walking to the MBS is closest and easiest from this hotel than from Ritz millenia, MO or other hotels on their side. You can watch the MBS light show (which people staying IN the MBS cannot) from the hotel lobby, your room, most of the hotel restaurants, or most of the restaurants in Fullerton one or Customs House. Oh and you should try Forlino at Fullerton One, it is one of the best italian fine dining restaurant in Singapore. Another tip, stay away from the celebrity restaurants in MBS, (osteria mozza, bistro moderne, hideo yamamoto etc) they serve mediocre food at meteor prices. The only reason you would dine there is because you want to be seen. Or you didn't know better. Now you do. CUT is the only restaurant that serves good food, but the price is a bit insane.

Believe me, stay here and see what a luxury boutique hotel really means.

Room Tip: when you book the cheapest room, you are more exposed to the public from the windows.

The hotel is lovely if you are looking for a wonderful heritage expereince, but are prepared to pay for it. Enjoyed our recent stay at the Fullerton Hotel. Look for a good deal if you can find one as it's an expensive hotel. Rooms are very well appointed and quiet. Freash milk in th emini bar fridge would eb great for coffee. Great service. We didn't eat at the hotel as it was too expensive. Very well located on the river /Boat Quay. Nice pool overlooking the river. We discovered the bus stop right outside the hotel and caught buses everywhere, which was very convenient. The doorman helps with taxis but you may have to wait in peak times. Lots of good walking around the hotel. All in all, an enjoyable stay in a beautiful hotel.

This was my second stay at the Fullerton which is a fantastic hotel centrally located and full of history. The property is a landmark and has an imposing effect both externally and internally. From the moment you arrive the service was excellent. Check-in was efficient and simple. The allocated room was first class on a corner with a split level and stairs down to the bedroom area. The windows were small but allowed sufficient natural light into the room and had a view out over the Marina to the Sands hotel.

The room was well furnished with a large flat screen TV, good desk and comfy chairs. The bed was excellent and very comfortable. All curtains and lights could be operated by controls by the bedside. The bathroom was modern with a full size bath, walk-in shower. The toiletries were of good quality and plentiful.

There restaurant on the ground floor where breakfast was served was large enough to cope with a good many people and provided tables inside and out although you needed to time it right to get an outside table. There was a good variety of food for the buffet breakfast and the only fault that I experienced was that the egg station could be a little slow sometimes. The bar was good for snacks a drink with friends. The cocktail bar outside was great place to spend an evening or have a night cap. The swimming pool was adequate and covered the maximum space available. The pool staff were attentive and very pleasant. It provided a good place to lounge around in down time.

The hotel fully deserves its 5 star rating and will stay there again when next in Singapore

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the Marina bay

We usually chose modern or boutique hotels but this time we decided to try a landmark in Singapore, the Fullerton Hotel. First what strikes you when you come in is that it is a part of Singapore's history as it was the Post Office many years ago. It is a bit like the Peninsula in HK you can sense history. . This place has a soul. In the evening musicians play great music in the big lobby.Our room was massive with a dressing and a great view over the river. Service was really great from room service to the reception. Brunch on Sunday was just magnificient. It seems very popular among expats. The hotel is probably the best located hotel I have been too in Singapore as it is 10mn walk from clarke quay, 10mn from China town and 10mn from the Sands. Overall a great experience.

Just did a staycation with wife n two kids at this hotel. Speaking from a local Singaporean's point of view, it is a very good stay.

Some pointers to note:
- check out the hotel website for promo. They do have different deals through out the year. At times they r really good. I got a Heritage room 1 for 1 night free, though the hotel changed the rate to a higher price... It is still worth it compare to the norm.

- try arrive earlier to ask for the best room, as the rooms do not have standard configuration and view. I did ask over the phone reservation to confirm at least a river view.

- room at second floors are very accesible to pool. Mine was 261. Good as it has a terrace where you can walk out. Though it is linked to your neighbors, it still feels fairly private.

- request to visit the sister hotel- Fullerton Bay Hotel. It is a short ride away by hotel's Limousin- if u r lucky depend on availability (we got it) or public
cab paid by hotel. Highlights: a much more modern hotel setting by the water front. A roof top pool, spectacular jucuzzi looking over the bay!

Hope u enjoy your stay too.

it's a historical hotel, colonial architecture, define in luxury services and hotel room. an experience stay if you want to stay within walkin distance to boat quay, and marina bay front with all the new restaurants along the bay front, choose over easy restaurant that famous with their all day breakfast. also gud experience at nite time for dinner and cocktails. other venue and bar experience also nearby, named it; lantern at the fullerton one, and of course altitude at the 1 raffles place only 5 mins walk.

Room Tip: river view or marina bay view, both are excellent.
