A very pleasant stay.

Posted May 16, 2017
Pros: Good size room and comfortable bed.
Location: The hotel is near to the MRT and a leisurely 10 minute stroll through Fort Canning Park brings you into the City Centre.
The hotel is located on the edge of Fort Canning Park. A 10 minute walk through the park will bring you into the City Centre and all the Restaurants, etc. The hotel is clean and the rooms are of a good size. Beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are not modern by today's standards but functional with plenty of hot water and the shower is powerful. The pool is large, clean and very well kept and ideal for a swim after a hard day's sightseeing. Air con in the hotel and rooms is a must and worked very well. Breakfast is plentiful and all you can eat. Western style food, which was eggs, bacon, etc and other food is available. A smoking area is located outside the entrance lobby in the open front courtyard area for those that smoke. The Staff all spoke English. All in all, i would highly recommend a stay at the hotel and would have no hesitation in staying there again.

Excellent location

Posted Apr 9, 2017
We have always returned to this hotel whenever we visit Singapore. The location is really convenient and is close to the MRT. Dhoby Ghaut is on most of the lines on the MRT. It's a couple of stops to Orchard, Little India and Chinatown. The room is of an adequate size snd is clean.

The hotel is very near the MRT and malls which is very convenient. The hotel looks a bit old fashioned but clean. The staff were nice. Beds were comfortable.

Budget hotel, Good Location.

Posted Mar 9, 2017
Pros: See above
Cons: See above
Location: See above
Room was adequate, bed vey comfortable, however very bad mould issues in the bathroom were never addressed. The dining room had limited meal options during week nights, but the buffet breakfast was OK at $10 ++. The pool area had no shade areas and was basically unuseable during the day, except for a cooling swim. Hotel is reached via a moderate walk uphill from the MRT, with shopping and meal facilities within 10 minute walk. Not really a facility for the older guests. Good point was the closeness to Canning Park, the Museum, and other tourist sites. All in all, for the money, not too bad for a medium stay.

happy experience

Posted Mar 3, 2017
Our room was of a good size, fairly clean and comfortable sheets. Our shower was somewhat problematic with the door not closing properly, creating puddles outside every time. The air conditioning was very cold and the temperature could not be adjusted. The staff were helpful and friendly. Hotel was a close walk to great eateries and shopping centres. Overall a lovely stay.

central area of Singapore, close to little India

Posted Mar 1, 2017
Pool was nice on hot afternoons. Hotel is close to malls, Orchard Rd., and the MRT. Hotel is simple, but clean and hotel staff was quick to bring requested addition pillows. Coffee, tea, and water all supplied as well as a simple buffet breakfast. Certainly it was worth the price.

FORT CANNING LODGE/YWCA

Posted Feb 26, 2017
Pros: Generally clean and hospitable staff. Great semi-secluded area since it is not facing the busy Orchard Road/Penang Rd end but facing Fort Canning Hill
Cons: This place really needs a gym (after all it's also the YWCA) and although my bathroom was clean, the uneven bathroom floor collects recessed water.
Location: You are really behind the south end of Orchard Road which is less busy. Plaza Singapura is only a 5 minute walk and the rest of Orchard Rd is nearby
Stayed there for 4 nights and hotel was generally good except that there were no ice machine and gym. Hotel was at the rear of Park Mall and facing the north end of Fort Canning Hill. Had a spectacular birds-eye view of the more ritzy Fort Canning Hotel at the hill side. Walked through Orchard Rd and City Hall which is nearby. If you know your way, Chinatown is about a 15-20 minute walk away. Hotel rate was reasonable.
