“Budget hotel and Clean room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

We stayed two nights at Fragrance Hotel - Pearl (19-20 Oct 2014). This is budget hotel so small room, newish hotel, clean room and good staff. It location in red-light district of Singapore, walk 15-20 minutes to MRT and near bus-stop, so good for travel by bus (by Singapore tourist pass).

Room Tip: Deluxe Room have free WiFi in room

Me and my friends had a family suite which sounds only nice. Room was very small, walls DIRTY, bathroom tiny. Size of this room should be max for 2 people,but this is Singapoure I guess. Only Lobby was Okay. Service very poor.

Stayed at the Pearl for two nights after a recent cruise. Chose it after reading reviews and based on its price with our limited budget. Let me say that you definitely get what you pay for - this is a budget hotel. It has very little in the way of facilities. Having said that, it was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. However, they could have offered more useful information without being asked (like advising that you had to switch on an unlabeled power circuit to obtain any hot water). So if you need to know anything, ask reception.
The surrounding area is very dirty and busy with local vendors everywhere in the streets. Although they were not in your face trying to sell their wares.
A local bus could get you to Bugis Junction and the MRT in 15mins. We found that a Singapore Tourist Pass gave us all the traveling capacity we needed to see the sights of Singapore for 3 days from this hotel.

Room Tip: Street noise is limited, so any floor is OK at this hotel.

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.
Great location with great food all around

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.
