I just spent one night and I have a great experience at this hotel. First of all, it is a very easy access to/from airport and the others parts of the city by MRT. It is less than 10 minutes walk from aljunied station and we took about half hour from hotel to airport. All the staff including the front... More

If you are looking for a place to stay and just sleep in, this is a decent budget hotel for you. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Their check-in time is 3pm, but my friend and I arrived too early, so we had to check-in our luggage, so we didn't have to carry it around the city. It was... More

Stayed here for four days, three nights with family; we had a room with a double and a twin sized bed. Yes, the room and the bathroom are VERY small; however, we were barely in the room as we were always sightseeing, so it worked for us. We only had two pieces of luggage with us- three or more pieces... More

To be a budget traveler in Singapore is a little bit challenging especially when it comes to hotel price. For me, I do not like dorm style hostel and prefer the budget hotel. My choice always come to Fragrance Hotel Ruby in Geylang area. Although it is located in the middle of a red district area, the quality is unbelievably... More

Clean, small room. Value is good for the quite expensive Singapore. The location was good (10min walk from a metro station). What shocked me was - no internet in rooms? 10 Dollars per a device for a day? Pure insanity! There is unlimited access in the reception area, that is why it is ALWAYS filled with people.... Furthermore, I do... More

Stayed for two nights. The value for money is good considering the price of Singapore hotels. The room and bathroom are small but are clean and adequate if you don't plan to spend much time in the room. There is a bus stop 5 minute walk so getting into the centre is fine. The staff are friendly and helpful. Only... More

This hotel have a tiny room, but i think that's enough for us because we only use the room for sleeping in the night. For travellers like us, this hotel is really convenient and cozy. When we first arrived at this hotel, we got the upgrade room without charge apply, maybe it's because now it's the high season so their... More

I agreed that the room price is really cheap in Singapore for a 2-star hotel. The price is cheap because it is actually far from the city and quite roam with laborers and prostitutes there. When I first entered the hotel, I needed to wait for checking-in since there are too many customers waiting for checking-out. It was not agile... More

I agree with what most users had to say about the rooms -- it was very tiny and basic, but for the price that we paid and considering what other hotels in Singapore are charging, it was indeed a very good deal. The walls are very thin however, so if you're a very light sleeper, wear earplugs! ;) What was... More
