The room is a little small but was comfortable for two adults. A small refrigerator and coffee/tea are provided along with a hot water pot. There are many restaurants within walking... More

Honestly, the deluxe room was not that bad considering the price. The good thing about this hotel is the price & the cleanliness. Unfortunately there were plenty of downsides... We arrived and were automatically "upgraded" to an executive, but the decor was gaudy and the window was much smaller than in the deluxe room. The room was also SMALLER, and... More

At this place for a week. I've stayed at both Venue and Venue Lily located on the same street within 100 metres of each other. The Fragrance, I think, is under new management because they had some refurbishments done . The entrance is welcoming with a good sized foyer . However the artificial fireplace and lounge setting ( very dated)... More

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.

Stayed one night no complaints, recently renovated and would stay again. While the location is not central if you want to stay some where and experience local Singapore this might be for you. $10 taxi from airport $10-15 to Marina Bay, great eating places turn right out of the hotel walk about 5 mins and find the Geylang market great...

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.

Staying in Joo Chiat

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.
