Reviewed 6 February 2012

If you are willing to spend and wish to get some real 5-star services, locations, views - Fairmont is the choice! Located right above of City Hall MRT brings you to almost all the must-go places in Singapore within 10-15 min train ride.

Located next to Swisshotel where you get access to one of my favourite bar/restaurant - Equinox or Chijmes (World Heritage Site being turned in restaurant or bar street).

Not to mention the mall next to it Raffles City is a great place to shop. There is underground (5 min walk) to another 2 shopping malls i.e. Suntec City and Marina Square. Beautiful and lovely place

We got an upgrade when we checked in, which was nice, but we later found out why! There was construction going on in the shopping mall in which the hotel is located, so at 01.30 AM we woke up to the noise of drilling and hammering. After a long time we got another room in which we could sleep. No deduction in price no nothing. The internet is VERY expensive. At check out the receptionist Jessica was very annoyed about the fact thab we wanted a receipt for the already deducted 200,00 sin$. she sighed loudly! If we ever go back to Singapore, we will definately choose another hotel. Expensive and no value for money.

The location of the hotel is superb. 30 minutes drive from the airport and close to the business districts and shopping. It is also accessible and linked to the subway. Service is average and the rooms are dated. Expensive Internet charge and would probably try the mandarin oriental the next time round.

Stayed for two nites in Room 1526, a Deluxe Standard room. From arrival in the taxi, the hotel exudes class, friendly greetings from the guys collecting you lugagge and plenty of staff at the check-in counter.

Check-in process was efficient and staff very friendly. The room was in the South Tower overlooking The Raffles Hotel. Lugagge arrived within 5 minutes and was delivered by a bellhop who gave an excellent run down of the room facilities, in particular the central control system, which pretty much controls everything from curtains to lighting. Room size is good (see photos), great bed, call down for your specific pillow request from 7 choices! Desk, nice size TV, Nespresso Coffee maker, steam iron all in the room.

Bathroom is interesting with the rainshower outside the tub but in the open area alongside the tub. Different when you see it, no problem when you use it! Good size sink area (single sink) and hairdryer provided.

Internet is cable and extremely fast. I always carry an Airport Express with me and was instantly able to WiFi the room for flexibility.

Location is fantastic, 2 minute walk to City Hall MRT, Raffles Hotel across the street, and CHIMES restaurant and bar area adjacent.

Book online for great deals, overall great place and will stay here again.

There is a scam in operation at this hotel between the front desk staff and In Room Dining Services. After you check out, your credit card will be billed for items from the refreshment center (in room bar) that were not consumed. BEWARE!! STAY CLEAR OF THIS HOTEL.

There are many reputable hotels in Singapore. This is NOT one of them

I recently stayed at the Fairmont in SIN for the first time. spent a week and thought overall the experience was good. Signature rooms were very good value and the rooms were perfectly fine. The location is really good as it is part of a shopping mall and has some decent restaurants too (Italian restaurant has great pizza's, Mikuno is a good Japanese but very expensive, there is an excellent food court in the adjacent mall), only downside was the very tired and boring hotel lobby and the totally useless concierge. Upstairs in the mall there is a great foot reflexology place to unwind and recover. i travel extensively for work and pleasure and i think these concierges may have been the most useless ever!! Not only did they know nothing about the city but they constantly gave wrong information from absolutely dreadful restaurants, to airport travel information, to no clue about rush hour etc, they even informed us we must take passport when we went to Night Zoo and to Universal Studios which isnt needed!!!
Anyway, the trip was great. make sure to check out Mozza Restaurant and the Marina Bay Sands, one of the best meals in a long long time, also Jumbo Seafood is great. DO NOT GO to No Billboard and whatever you do, do not take any dinner recommendations from the concierge team, everytime we had a bad meal or got sick was from their recommendations.
Great City!! enjoy

Room Tip: make sure to take a signature room

The mall attached to the hotel makes it convenient for shopping and alternative eating places....my stay would've been excellent if they were able to accomodate me in my room of choice.... i had a good view from my balcony though.... good for a return visit.
