If you want to have peace of mind during your vacation, then do not book a room here at all costs! My family and I have just recently returned from our holiday in Singapore, and on our last night, we came back to The Fragrance Hotel - Joo Chiat to find ourselves moved out of our room without our knowledge....

Superior Room, 15sqm (including bathroom) and the most uncomfortable bed we have ever tried to sleep on. A cotton sheet over a pvc/vinyl covered mattress is just impossible. But, it cost just over USD50 a night. :-) Disaster? No! Fantastic area, stepping back into 1970's Singapore with so many excellent restaurants (not so cheap though - this is Singapore), turn...

The Hotel Joo Chiat is 10-15 min away from the airport, located between the East Coast Road and the Red-light-district, Geylang, a nice malaysian neighborhood with a few restaurants, bars and two malls in walking distance. The hotel is not expensive for singapore, the room was clean, with everything you need for one or two nights and for singapore standards... More

We checked in around midnight, and very upset to see the room cleanliness/hygienic. More than 10 little roaches moved across the room. After complained, staff transferred us to another fragrance hotel. Just avoid if possible

I find this hotel very satisfactory during our 3 nights stay. The location is quiet during daytime and a little bit busy in the evening. It is located in a mixed residential, commercial and KTV bars. Although there are KTV bars in the area, tourists are most welcome and not being harrassed by the pretty girls around, unlike in other... More

One of the budget hotels on joo chiat rd. We took the "family room" and just about squeezed in, thats 2 adults, 1 child and 1 infant. If you are just looking for a place to crash at the end of the day, this will just about do. You would have a hard time ignoring the little roaches that populate... More

It is a budget hotel and somebody can consider staying here for a couple of day. Average room qualiy with normal ambience. Nearby to the airport but the problem is entire street with lot of pubs and night bars. Avoidable for a family stay

I found this place decent value for money. I spent three nights there and although the rooms are quite spartan, they are spacious and quiet enough for a good sleep. Some negatives are there are no shower curtains (and they don't have any to give you if you ask), the internet wireless connection is a bit erratic, and the acoustics... More

Staying in Joo Chiat

Neighborhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighborhood is packed with colorful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
