“Definitely good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Visited SG and stayed for 3 nights at this hotel in their deluxe room. While the room itself is small, it is clean and has everything that you can expect to have for the price you pay. The bathroom lacks any shower curtain as I suspect it is intended to be used in a very Asian style (i.e. just wet area, no separate dry area). The air conditioner works really well, which is fantastic considering the climate. Easy walk to MRT with numerous buses passing nearby. Will definitely stay again!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights beginning of this month..and found it exactly as we expected for the price we paid. We paid quite a reasonable price of approx$55usd per nyt and it was a good value. Only thing is the location is a bit out n away frm the nearest mrt and it's a good 5-10 min walk. The staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. Although we heard alot of bad things about the geyleng area being a red light area we did find e few fishy n cheeky activities happening only in the evening hours.. But nothing that actually affected our stay.! So we will reccomend this hotel to people looking for a good accomodation at a cheaper price :)

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Stayed just one night as part of a longer trip. For £30 a night cant really be too critical. Most importantly room was clean. Twin room was small but not bad. For short stays that are not too expensive you would do well to find a better place. Is located fairly far from main tourist attractions but MRT is about 15min walk away so location isn't too much of an issue. Lots of good local food places nearby...we had the best food of our whole trip at one of the nearby local restaurants. Would recommend this hotel.

Stayed for two nights with husband and 5 years old daughter. Arrived at hotel around 8.30 am and was able to leave luggage at the hotel's storage room (which is locked) before heading off to Universal Studios. No luck with early check-in.

The room was small, simple but clean. We were given room 203, near to the lift and facing the back alley. Although Geylang is known as the red light district, we didn’t see anything disturbing, even when we arrived at night. The room only had two pillows. Didn’t get an extra pillow after we requested for it cause the hotel didn’t have extra to spare. The room had hot water, a flat screen tv, aircond, electric cattle and the hotel provided basic toiletries. WIFI was available for $5 for 2 hours. They also provided two computers at the lobby for surfing, $1 for 15 mins. Convenience shops were nearby, on Geylang Road.

The location of the hotel was quite a distance from the Kallang MRT station but near two bus stops: 80071 SIMS AVE - YI XIU FTY BLDG and 80069 GEYLANG ROAD – OPP MOHD SALLEH MSQ. Instead of taking the MRT, we travelled by bus and it was a great experience, especially for kids because they are able to look out and see the city. We took bus 80 from Opps Mohd Salleh Msq bus stop to USS and Arab Street. If we took the MRT to go back to the hotel, we would stop at Kallang Stn, take bus 13 and stop at Sims Ave – Yi Xiu Fty Bldg. Then just walk about 5 minutes to reach hotel.

Overall, we were satisfied with our 3d2n stay except the extra pillow part. This hotel is definitely for those looking for a budget hotel to just sleep and freshen up before exploring the city again.

I thank you for taking time to write a review of your hotel stay!

I see that you had provided detailed information such as the bus stop numbers to advise the travellers on getting to the USS by bus from the hotel. I also appreciate you for submitting your traveller photos of the room and premise. They looked great!

I am sorry that due to heavy ocupancy situation, you were not able to check in earlier than the intended check in time (3pm). All our extra pillows had also been given out in view of this high occupancy.

I am glad that you had a satsifying stay at our hotel and I hoped to see you returning to stay with us soon!

I found stay at Hotel Fragrance, better than expected. I read Geyland is a red light area of Singapore, but I found nothing disturbing .The hotel is conveniently located,the staff is cooperative, rooms big enough. I reached early and they allowed me check in about 2 hrs earlier than the check in time The Hotel is a bit away from MRT but local bus service is efficient and all route buses are available just on the main road outside hotel. AC , hot & cold water and Wi Fi was avaible at the hotel. Overall a good stay and value for money.

Cheap budget motel, decent stay for 1 or 2 nights. Location not too bad, quite a walk to MRT station, and had to pass a frog restaurant with glass aquarium with live frogs. Quite gross. The place does have a dodgy red light district feel. Wifi was quite useless in the room, had to walk to the lift area. Overall ok for super-budget traveler.

Stayed there for 2 nights. Located close to MRT stations. Staff is helpful and nice. 3person rooms was ok and very clean, as other parts of hotel. Wifi is only 2h and up and you cant save your time so you have to use it all at once.
