The purpose of this hotel was to have somewhere to sleep instead of sleeping in the airport. I also wanted to explore Singapore but didnt want to stay at a hotel that was too far from the airport. Getting to the hotel from the airport is fairly easy IF google maps works correctly or IF the map used is accurate... More

The hotel is very nice and clean. The staff: Shiela, Ben and Yuqi are very friendly, reliable and know their jobs well. Also thanks to "Kuya" Ted of Fragrance Hotel Crystal who accompany us all the way to Hotel Ruby since we had a hard time looking for it as the bus was covering its name and the people we... More

Despite being located in the red district area of Singapore, it wasn't as sleazy as expected, nothing to feel unsafe about. Hotel feels fairly new and clean, room small but correct. WiFi only in the terribly freezing lobby! Good connected to the airport and the centre from the nearest station Aljunied. Every morning (early morning) there was a lot of... More

If I could I would rate this hotel a zero!!! This hotel pictures advertised seems nice but is very deceiving. The room was extremely small with no space for luggage. The walls were dirty and could use re-painting. The shower was so small that my elbow kept hitting the walls when trying to shower. The toilet smells like backed up... More

Hotel is very nice. Interior n exterior is clean. Check in was fast n though location is in the red light district, it does not bother us. Foodstalls are all over so its easy if you are hungry. Safe environment too. Bad thing was the toilet smells of sewage so you have to wash it down with soap but eventually... More

1) Book a superior room @$60 on 18th Feb thru Fragrance website. After looking thru all Fragrance hotels, think Ruby is the most value one. 2mins walk from main road bus stop and turn into lorong 20. There are so many foreign workers along the main road and lanes day & night. Alot of pretty pros & pims too. The... More

Yes, Singapore is known to be expensive,and if touring all day means you just need your hotel for sleep, not the bar, nor the pool ,and money saved is better spent on things, or more vacations, consider the following. If low budget and clean is what you are looking for in Singapore, yet you still want to be near the... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Only a short journey from Singapore’s sparkling and polished city center, Geylang is a world away. Here in one of the least touristy areas of Singapore, visitors are privy to an unfiltered glimpse of Singapore life. On Sunday afternoons, migrant workers gather in Geylang to let off steam after a tough week. At the eastern end of Geylang Road, families and friends happily enjoy picnics. By contrast, at the western end, a more colorful side of Singapore can be seen, as street workers mingle with Sunday revelers in outdoor coffee shops. Take a friend, grab a beer and a local meal (frog porridge, perhaps?), and settle in to enjoy the show.
