the room was terribly small , could almost touch the walls both sides , bathroom tiny and not clean, looked like the cups had not been washed and I am not sure if the bed sheets were changed, I think the housekeeping needs a lot of improving, the only thing that was ok for this hotel is it was just...

Tiny but clean and new room. Staffs were very accommodating and nice. Located very near the MRT station and the bus stop. Tricky to get food around though since it is situated in the red light district, so we preferred to eat elsewhere and just go home and sleep here. Overall a very nice, budget hotel experience in expensive Singapore.... More

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night. This is the 2 star hotel and is very cheap for Singapore, so can't complain much but I don't think I would ever stay in this hotel again.. The room was tiny but okay - but when I took a shower around 10 p.m. - no hot water. I took another shower at... More

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
