Rooms are adequate, but far from luxury. You probably won't fall in shower, because there's not enough room to fell. Towels even I think washed, not always clean and holes... Amenities? Not much... In the middle of red light district, so maybe not for the families. Public transport nicely available and lots of nice eateries around. Staff very friendly and... More

Good hotel with the shop and food shop in nearby area. The MRT and the bus stop are not far from the hotel which can walk around 5 minutes then you can go to town or back to the airport. The room is suitable for couples to stay overnight during traveling in Singapore.

I have stayed here twice now for a few nights at a time and am coming here for one more night before my flight. Strongly recommend it. The staff: very friendly and smiling all of the time! Especially when you give them a friendly good morning! Attached is a pic of the front desk guys. The location is very good,... More

Hotels are so overpriced in Singapore and for that I'll give this hotel three stars for being even close to decent priced. But what comes to the room itself, the hotel's location and nearbys I'd definitely give less than three stars. It is located in Geylang area which is known for it's red light district business during the night time.... More

Thank you for your hotel stay! I appreciate you for taking time to write this feedback. The Geylang district is also considered an amazing food hub littered with late-night hawkers and fruit stalls. Over here, adventurous foodies can explore the streets to enjoy local food ranging from claypot rice, pork ribs soup, beef noodles to the exotic dishes like frog... More

Our room was very tiny, almost no place beside the bed. Anyway, it is hardly possible to get something better under SGD 100 in SG (?). Location in red light district but no danger. No restaurant on site but many eateries around. Near to public transport (bus and metro), good connection to the city centre. Good wifi.

Fragrance Ruby is good choice for few days stop over. It''s close to Changi and city. Near by the hotel are many nice restaurants. Nearest MRT-station is only short walk away, some 10 min. The hotel is basic business hotel. It's clean, sade and quite. And service is also good.

The rooms are all the same size as my wife and I were told by the desk help, we were upgraded to a executive type room for our inconvenience of having to wait till 1pm to get a room. The room was tiny yet practical, bed sheets were super white, toilet was clean while combined with the shower. This room... More

Staying in Geylang

Neighborhood Profile
Geylang
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.
