I got what I paid for ($57SGD a night) which is a reasonably sized room, queen sized bed, clean blankets, and a bathroom which included a mini clothes line so I could wash clothing when needed. As a female travelling alone - I felt safe, but never went anywhere alone in the dark!
The reception staff are helpful but can be frosty - from reading reviews it appears that this is the norm. In saying that the staff at the Ritz Carlton were amazing and I wasn't even staying there (I'd just popped in for the free art tour). For the Fragrance Hotel I witnessed some of their interactions with other customers which varied from being incredibly helpful and patient, to raised voices, refusals and dismissive comments - not sure what to make of it.
To get an iron you must provide a $10 deposit which you get back when you return the iron & ironing board (when checking out). The iron never went past warm so in the end I didn't bother.
The house cleaning lady is lovely and accommodating, and made sure I was happy with the room (bless).The amazing choices you have for eating out, and it's close proximity to buses (just a few metres from the hotel) and the Praya Lebar train station (15 min walk) makes this location very convenient.
