We had a really, really, really comfortable stay here. It was also kinda refreshing to see a filipino staff working there. We booked 3 room. 2 room for 2 people and a family room. The check-in was at 15:00hrs but he gave us the family room (since it was already ready) for us to put our luggage. The staff also... More

This hotel has been recently renovated. They have done an excellent job of renovating. The colours are pleasant, all the furniture and fixtures are new. The staff are very courteous and go out of their way to help you. Some nice local eateries around. It's 15 mins drive to Changi airport Will stay here again.

Although I was well advised about the 1st transfer to Fragrance Ruby, I didn't expect to be moved to another Fragrance location (Sapphire) upon arrival to Ruby. It was very tiring after a long trip from Honolulu being moved around to accommodate us.

Friendly staff, clean rooms, good location (we did waste some time to figure out how to get anywhere at the start, but it did not take long). The neighbourhood was lively but quiet at night (which is a good thing in my opinion, in order to get a good night's rest). Would return.

Neighborhood Profile
Joo Chiat
The Joo Chiat area is the traditional home of Peranakan culture in Singapore, an ethnic group descending from the blending of Chinese and Malay families in the 15th century. The neighborhood is packed with colorful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding. Visit Joo Chiat to take a break from the big city sights and enjoy a relaxing afternoon with a laid-back and local vibe.
