The rooms does not look like the picture in the website. The room and bathroom are small. However, the room and bathroom were clean. The housekeeping was very prompt. Our kettle, tv remote control and air con remote did not work but as soon as we had informed them, immediately they came to remedy our problem. The receptionist is very... More

Clean! Friendly front desk staff, but always on their phones texting etc. Room well serviced daily. Had a back room with window which was quite from street noise. Noisy air con but get over it! An easy bus ride to the nearest mrt, but not necessarily in the main vicinity of anything. The Jewel in the crown... right next door... More

So many men come here with their girl just for 2 hours stay. Just like the transit hotel. If you go with your GF and you want to Make Love,then go to this hotel. The staff very impolite.. Bad service small hotel.. The security is very strict maybe because too many naughty girl checked-in to this hotel

Fragrance has been a fairly good experience. Their staff is very co-operative. Rooms are neat and clean. Conveniently located at Balestier Road, it is very well connected through all public transport means.

I think it is the perfect place to sleep at a budget. Rooms are tiny but enough for 2 people who only sleep in the rooms. There is a tiny tv, a blow dryer. There is a room service everyday: they give you two water bottles everyday, change the bin and do the bed. Staff was nice and helpful. I... More

We left a cruise ship early morning and had a flight late evening so needed some rest before continuing our journey. A helpful taxi driver took us to this hotel for its reasonable day rates. It was just what we ordered. The room had an overpoweringly pleasant smell and I suspect that was due to the previous guest being a... More

Generally, a good place to stay. We were given two adjoining rooms on the third floor. Only complaint about the rooms was the smell in both bathrooms. Horrible smell. Getting about? Think taxi or bus. No MRT station in the vicinity. We often commuted to the Novena MRT station via taxi. All the staff were wonderful. Special mention for Myvi.... More

Don't be fooled by the pictures your room will look nothing like them. The whole hotel smells like an ashtray unfortunately, the first room we went to smelled like cigarettes and had dirty sheets so we asked to switch to another non-smoking room.The whole hotel is non-smoking by the way. The second room was just as bad but at least... More
