This was our first time in Singapore and this hotel really kept up to our expectations. We got it for a cheap deal on Agoda, clean and neat. The front desk staff were very kind and helpful. We kept our luggage in the hotel because we landed early and the check-in time was 3.00 PM. The room was tiny, but... 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.

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.

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.
