The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore

This is a super duper hotel, the name itself is very prominent. So do expect a super duper rates as well. Location wise, it is near the Quay area. You may have heard about Boat Quay where you can find nice F&B places, as it is by the river. From the Boat Quay, you can see the Marina Sands Bay hotel, nice view place for a great wine and dine.

I stayed at this hotel to attend a meeting, so thank god, we got a special rate and an upgrade to the Heritage room :)

Anyway, the hotel's location, is not at Orchard Road as the other hotel in Singapore I have posted before, BUT in Singapore as long you are near the MRT, it is so easy to just get to anywhere. In fact, I did take the train which the station (Raffles Place) is just less than 8 minutes walk away...the 8 minutes is because we stopped here and there along the way to go to the station.

This is the hotel from the river. Can you see on the below right, next to the river ? That's the outdoor seating area at the coffee house. So, seat there for breakie, it is just nice....

This is the Twin Sharing Room. Separate beds, but its like the beds joining, huh ?
OK, this is Singapore. When its Twin beds, means its 02 single beds and the beds are really single, single. Not like some places that has Super Single or Queen bed.
Note : even for me, I am only 5'5", but I can feel my feet jotting out from the bed :D

The room is quite long, for this category. This is due to the building structure. Nice sofa just to sit but it doesn't face the TV. So for this room, we had a weird view...which you will see later in the next photo.

Yeap, our view was the Hotel's atrium. Can you just imagine, walking in your towels and stand at the window ?? Then you would see a whole bunch of people looking up ???? hahahahahhaaaa......

Some decorations in the room. Didn't try to see if we can open up the cabinet. NOT to take the things away, but just see how "beautiful" these artifacts are.
Nice working table. Oh yeah, the room comes with free cable Internet access.

Big bathroom, with separate shower stall & a closed WC. So nice for privacy .

The hotel has nice a nice infinity pool so definitely, it is catered to all. But when you see mostly corporate business traveller here, families with small children may feel a bit awkward if your kids start to jump or scream around. 

So we will come to my 02 cents worth of conclusion for this hotel :
  1. a VERY corporate business traveller / convention hotel ( they have separate entrance for those coming with big coaches )
  2. Nice place for an Afternoon English Tea. Have that grandeur feeling, if you get what I mean
  3. Not so family oriented. I mean, the hotel itself looks "old" and proper, so when you have kids running or shouting around, it is more embarrassing for the parents.

So then again, these are my opinions. Some of you may have stayed there and experienced otherwise. As I have said, and will again say, you may like it or you may just don't...... :)
