“quality Budget Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We stayed at the Fragrance Hotel - Pearl for 6+ days in its Family room - a decent sized room. It consist of a queen-sized bed with a single-sized bunk bed, loft arrangement. There's no sitting room but we are only there at night to sleep, as the days are mainly spent exploring the island.

The hotel is centrally located (south-east) on the island. Even though, it located in the red-light district of Singapore, we saw a continuous police patrolling and didn't encounter any untowards behaviour. It is central to where we wanted to visit and definitely fits in with our purpose (as a staging point to explore the rest of the island).

The most of the Front desk staff were friendly and were willing to help and answer most queries. The housekeeping staff were very friendly and helpful.

The 2x gripe i have about the Fragrance Hotel - Pearl;
1. the room we were given had really really low water pressure - having a shower was quite a task. imagine, trying to perform a hip-hop dance in a broom closet
2. there were tiny flying insect in the bathroom.

Overall, i would patronize the Fragrance Hotel - Pearl again but next time, i'll make sure that the water pressure is up to "scratch" :)

Room Tip: 1. try to ask for room away from the lift lobby 2. check your room water pressure :)

Bed was a bit hard,but got used to it after a couple of nights.

This hotel offers okay value, Please take note it is in the RED LIGHT DISTRICT , Hookers everywhere grabbing your arm for money. The hotel staff aren't that great, They don't really understand what's going on . Their English is okay, they really do mean well but aren't that helpful. Property is VERY clean , and smells amazing. Central , Fab for Couples on a budget, or friends, Not great for families. Wifi is VERY BAD connection .

Room Tip: No balconies, No great views.

Fragrance Pearl is in a fun location with many places to eat. There is a large supermarket close by for the extras one needs. Close to bus transport and a 10 minute walk from the train.The rooms are small but suitable for travellers who are out and about most of the day. The reception personnel are very helpful and very friendly. We had exceptional service from our floor housekeeping staff. This hotel is very reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Fifth floor was very quiet.

side street, so good for relaxing after a long day of walking around Singapore

clean rooms, staff is just ok. not so friendly, i'd say even a bit cold but still helpful

We were originally booked in at fragrances sister hotel just a few streets down but were transferred here at no extra cost with the taxi very kindly paid for.
The room was compact but adequate, well air conditioned, free wifi and clean. The only bad point was the location, Geylang was a very busy place deffinetly cultural but that doesn't mean to say it made us feel comfortable walking around in the evening, especially when have to go down the side streets to get to the hotel. Getting to Singapore City center was easy enough once we'd found the train station and figured out the ticket system but all in all quite simple.
Worth using if it's just a place to get your head down,
