I'm sure plenty of you are looking the room prices and cross-referencing the pretty mixed reviews of this place so, rather than make you read another essay, I'll keep it brief. The hotel is cheap by Singapore standards but is as good as more expensive options downtown. Some people may be put off by the fact it is in the... More

People who moan about staying in a red light district waste the Earth's oxygen when they complain about complete strangers minding their own business. To be honest I wish more places had women standing around waving at me. Formerly a one-hour ‘love hotel’ the Fragrance Ruby today has undergone a complete change from its early beginnings to a more professional... More

Experience unfriendliness and poor customer service at the front desk. Cleanliness; acceptable Location; difficult to locate I waited for an hour before I could check in to the hotel; I would advise everyone to come at least half an hour earlier from their check in time.

Thanks and thumb up for the young front desk staff named Mr.Ng Chin Aun whom was so polite and sincerely concerned and helping us changing a new bedsheet and replenished our bathroom liquid soap at midnight in his suit. Mr.Eddy,CEO of Fragrance Hotel must also be credited as well for having recruited such a considerate and service oriented staff liked... More

Stayed here with a friend and we are both under 5'3. This is significant because in our twin room our feet were at the end of the bed!!! They were so small! The room was tiny and we couldnt walk around at all as there wasnt room between the beds and the wall. They put a stall in there under... More

OK, so the red-light district remarks are true - but this is Singapore. You're safe most anywhere you go on the island. Check-in was far from seamless - owing to local law, an additional one-page form that requires your name, address, occupation. The staffer acted as though she had to re-type in everything that was part of the original reservation,... More

Stayed here for 3 nights as a brief stop over before I head to Bangkok. Whenever am at Singapore, the safest choice has always been the Fragrance hotels. Its in Lorong 20 just a few steps from the main road. The exterior of the hotel is clean, the lobby's chairs decorated in red color (probably because they're named Ruby!), the... More

I stayed here for 7 nights. I enjoyed my stay here. Although the room is a bit cramped it was still kept quite clean. The staff was very pleasant and always smiling and helpful. Overall I would stay here again because you have a decent place to stay for your money and the local street food is good and cheap.... More
