Fragrance Hotel - Ruby
Ranked #128 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Accommodation in Singapore may cost quite a bit in Singapore. But alas, I had found an affordable hotel at Fragrance Hotel Ruby in Geylang Singapore. It was just an equivalent amount in Ringgit Malaysia like across the causeway..Johor Bahru. With less than RM200.00 per night booking through Agoda, I had a perfect finding. The hotel is just a walking distance from the Aljunied MRT station. Nice food are all over the place from the moment you stepped down from the MRT station to the hotel. And, fresh local and imported fruits are in abandon along the streets. The hotel has no meal services but has a lobby with tables and chairs for your takeaway eating arena. I had two beautiful nights at the Fragrance Hotel in Singapore. (People smacked at the call girls at Geylang. But to me, they are the added beauties of the place. You liked them, you like them. They wonld not disturb you.) I was with my family during the stay and they were convinced of the nice place, the hotel and the community. Yes, bring your family for a nice stay at Fragrance Hotel......

Everything is working fine. Free Internet is only at the hotel lobby. The rate per night is lowest inall Fragrance within Geylang. Website reservation isn't working fine you have to boom it via Trip Advisor or Agoda.

Great service!
Even though I was attended by a trainee I think named Vera I am satisfied.
Was there early but she explain that check-in time was at 3 and we could leave our baggage n try again at 2 if there was any available clean room. She assisted us on our baggage. we plan head out and ask her for the nearest metro and where could we buy gifts n rather cheap shopping she directed us. Well for a few days we asked her a lot of question where n how to go hope we are not bugging her. The staff there greeted upon leaving n entering hotel. Room wise I a bit small but comfy. Location wise is not so good but convenient for food and travel. Hotel has polite n warm staff.

It may not be a five star hotel but this is perfect for travellers and not tourists going to SG. The fragrance brand is definitely the place to go for travellers. Their 40 usd a night rooms is not bad when the sheets are being changed daily and clean toilets. Also the airconditioner is pretty cool.

The only thing with this location is it's in Geylang where the red light district is located. If you're adventurous then this is the place for you to crash in. There are nearby hawker centers in the area as well for a quick bite if you need it.

If you're on a budget and you wanted to be adventurous this is the hotel for you. =)

Room Tip: make sure to check in early to avail and reserve a good room fo rthis

Ok it's a cheap accomodation in the expensive Singapore, but rooms are definitely too little, with no space for luggages, walking and so on. Also reaching plugs is very difficult and needs to lie on the bed to do!
Staff anyway is nice, maybe a bit too slow for check-in operations.
Location isn't the best: underground is 8-10 minutes walk away and during the journey some nice girls could invite you to spend some time with them...
There's no breakfast service, so it's a good choice to buy something at 7/11 in the nearby.

stayed 3 nights in an a/c double which was clean but very small. hotel is located in the middle of geylang's red light district (which was pretty amusing) but not too far to the mrt train into central singapore (around an 8 min walk). ideal to use as a base if you're looking for somewhere cheaper than chinatown etc to stay when exploring!

DO NOT STAY AT THIS "HOTEL"!
It stinks, everything is dirty, there were stains and hairs on bed sheets and towels, the staff is extremely unfriendly and not helpful. The hotel is very cheap but at the same time you get even less value for that little money you're paying.
