Stayed 2 nights in a no-window room at price RM460 (incl GST). There are 3 Fragrance Hotels along Balestier Road and the taxi drivers get very confused with them every time i hired a taxi. Tell them this hotel is opposite the famous Soy Bean shop, or the one near/ same row with famous chicken rice shop Boon Tong Kee.

Neither Novena nor Toa Payoh MRT station is near to this hotel, so you may want to hire a taxi every time you go to the town. There is a bus station right in front of the hotel- but i never know how to read/understand how the system goes.

Taxi from airport to this hotel is around SGD25, and to the flower market at Thompson Road is around SGD4. Going to Bugis Juction or Orchard Road is just few bucks.

Wifi charges: SGD5 for 2 hours, SGD10 for 10 hours, SGD18 for 24 hours.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with window

Singapore is my favourite stepping stone through Asia and I am happy to have discovered at last what a delight these tiny little hotels are!
Itsy Bitsy little buildings tucked away in odd spots, the Fragrance Hotels are a bit scary to book because, well... who wants to be stuffed away in an itsy bitsy little room without a window?
I loved my room at Oasis! It even had a window!
It was cosey, cool, beautifully appointed with everything I needed (even a kettle!), and had a delicious, massive, clean and dreamy bed which was perfect for re-packing my over-sized luggage, and for long sleeps in transit. It was also the cheapest room online - but definitely the best value ever in Singapore!
The staff were somewhat less that helpful - you're expected not to ask for much, but hey! That's Singapore!
It's a strange location, not at all touristy, and maybe because of that I got a fantastic manicure across the road for $8, the BEST Indian I have had in ages further along on that side, and found great pork buns, Singapore sweets and sidewalk cafes too.

Room Tip: Try the Indian place - it's really fantastic!

We choosed this hotel because of price. Location is not bad. Bus stops right in front of hotel and MRT is about 15 min. walk. But bus is cheaper and easy to understand. Staff was not so friendly. Room was clean and small.

Me and my friends were stayed in 3 rooms for 3nights. We like this hotel, cos its clean, and its comfy but most of all we love it because its affordable :D
I recommend stay in a double bed room, cos they have window. But actually the twin room got a larger room with a larger bathroom. If u stay in this hotel, u'll get a tiny bathroom, but its cute :p
There many fragrance hotels, so if u take a taxi, make sure u tell the driver the correct and the detail number of the address so they will take u the right fragrance hotel.
Over all, this is a recommended hotel for budget tourist.

Room Tip: Take double room if u need a window, but if u need a bigger room, take twin bed room! if u are choo...

we just came back from singapore last night. cant wait to complement the staff of this small hotel chain. Jona, the front desk receptionist went out of her way to lend us change for the bus fare because we only had large bills.as stated it is very small but very clean though. we had a room on the 4th flr with windows that has a pool view of the house behind it. the staff was very accomodating. we asked for 1 extra pillow after midnight without any problem. a bus stop is a step next to it to take you to both Novena and Toa Payoh MRT stations. food court nearby too. hotel prices are very steep in Singapore. glad they came up with clean, affordable and safe budget hotels like this one.. ..what more can you ask?

Room Tip: rooms with twin beds have no windows.only double rooms have windows.
