The Fullerton Building is a grand neoclassical landmark built-in 1928. What used to be Singapore’s General Post Office, the Exchange Room and Exchange Reference Library, and the prestigious Singapore Club was transformed into a stunning 400-room heritage hotel in Singapore.
Located along Singapore River and Merlion park is less than 5 mins walk away with plenty of F&B. Your stay will be filled with activities as you are near to a lot of attractions. The night scenery at Merlion park is also stunning.
Along the way towards the hotel from the carpark, you will see the heritage story on the along sidewall. You won’t miss the General Post Office bear along the way cause the size is so huge and it’s Instagram-worthy.
I reached the hotel at 3 pm and there was a long queue of people waiting to check-in. Guests were usher to the open area to fill in the declaration form which is a norm since the covid period.
For those with Kids, there is a giant size chess game available for them to play while those with green fingers may like to visit Fullerton farm where they grow vegetables and herbs.
Fan Fact: Do you know the Fullerton Hotel lego was made up of 470,000 pieces of legos?
It measures 3.35m in length, stands 1.1m tall and has a depth of 1.75m. The entire model took 478,500 LEGO bricks to construct.
The Heritage Room measure from 409–484sqf and comes with City / Atrium view. I am lucky to get the bigger room on level 6.
The room is divided into two sections. The beds and working area at below while the wardrobe and toilet are above the steps.
Upon entering the room, the wardrobe is on the right and the toilet is on the left. There are two wardrobes available, on the left are for your clothings and on the rights is where the safe and ironing board are kept.
The toilet is so spacious that after factoring the toilet bowl area, there is still plenty of space for double sink table top with light frame mirror.
Along the side are the bathtub and standing shower area. The bathtub is big enough to fit in two adults and it is by far the best bathtub I have ever seen.
The bathtub is ergonomic to lie into, it is shaped along with a curve that runs along your back. There’s two indentation for you to rest your elbows while you are soaking in the tub to do some reading or play with your phone.
There’s a stool provided in the rain shower cubicle. Anyone knows is for leg washing or for lazy people to sit and shower?
The best and fun will be the toilet bowl. It gives me a feeling that I’m back in Japan. The toilet bowl cover will open automatically when you walk towards it and closes on its own after you left. The seat is warm and you can use the remote to control the billet spraying.
Toilets anmenities are from Atkinsons1799. It was founded in 1799 with 200 years of history and is the official perfumer to the Royal Court of England.
Down the steps and on the right is the cabinet. You can find some snacks on the top and a Nespresso machine. Do note that everything is chargeable including the antibacterial wipes and hand sanitizer which most hotels I been to are providing as care kits.
Within the cabinet is the fridge, the fridge is well-stock with drinks and alcohol but it comes with a high price too.
There are three drawers at the side. From the top is where you can get your coffee and tea fix. There are TWG tea bags and Nespresso coffee pods together with the sugar and cups.
The second drawer will be drinking and wine glass.
Lastly will be a kettel and ice bucket. You can request ice from room service and they will send it to your room.
There is also a Novita air purifier in the room. First time I see it available locally for my staycations.
My room comes with Singapore River view and from far will be Esplanade and Fairmount.
The swimming is a stunning 25-meter outdoor infinity pool that is set against a backdrop of CBD business building and overlooks the charming Singapore River and the best part will be the warm water even at night.
The pool is operating from 7 am to 10 pm. Pre-booking is required.
Lift jacket is required for kids below 12 years old and 1.4m. Reason being is that the pool is 1.2m depth.
For those that are paranoid about the pool water condition, there is an pool information board that shows you the conditional of the pool like pH, Chlorine and the Temperature.
The Gym is located below the swimming pool and I made a booking to use the gym but was too tired to go after my swimming trip. Similarly with the swimming pool, pre-booking is required and the gym operates from 7 am to 10 pm
Breakfast was served at Town Restaurant and there is no limits to the number of mains you can order. However, the breakfast was just mediocre and not fascinating.
I enjoyed my stay very much and in fact I booked another stay in July. However those that booked Haritage rooms might not be allocate with this big room. I seen many other much small rooms due to the constraint of the building. Some doesn’t even has a view.
