Fragrance Hotel - Ruby
Ranked #121 of 317 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

The hotel is nice. Few mins walk from Aljunied Station. The room is small but clean and nicely lit. The bathroom is clean also. The internet connection works pretty well. The only downside is that when you go down, there are a lot of prostitutes lurking around. Not a very good sight. Pity cos the hotel was nice it is just that the rampant prostitution makes us uncomfortable. Me and my boyfriend were on our way back to the hotel and a man blatantly offered a "lady" to my boyfriend in front of me. Haha.

located in the heart of the Geylang red light district of Singapore, this budget hotel is spotlessly clean, staffed by efficient and friendly staff with a very much appreciated excellent air conditioning system which after a day of sightseeing in 30+ degrees of heat and high humidity is most welcome.
In the reception area there is internet access and they also sell snacks and cold drinks at great prices compared to down town!!
Aljunied MRT station is only a short distance away,however at various times of the day & night this involves running the gauntlet of the "ladies of the night" immediately outside the hotel.
The only fault we found with this hotel is the tiny rooms,just enough room for a double bed,nowhere to put your cases,and no wardrobe only a couple of wall hooks!!
Oddly enough, the bathroom is quite adequate considering the lack of space.
If you want to see Singapore on a budget this could be a very good option as long as you are not claustrophobic.

Room Tip: A front view would be more interesting as all of life goes on outside. the rear view is scruffy but...

I stayed one day in this hotel with my family (three children age 6,9,12) in a triple deluxe room. Reception is very good .Room is very small no space to move around but comfortable. There are lots of eating places close by and only one money exchange place which opens at 10.30 a.m. Hotel is very close to MRT station and bus station . If you need a taxi hotel will arrange it.

We caught the MRT train to Aljunied station and then walked the relatively short distance to the hotel. Not an easy walk as the pavements are littered with furniture making walking with trailing luggage very difficult.
The hotel is not expensive but very basic, it is in the heart of Singapore’s China Town which adds to the interest…it is also in the red light area but that is not a problem. The centre of Singapore is just a short inexpensive train journey away using the fast efficient railway system.
No breakfast at the hotel, we got complimentary Wi Fi not sure if everyone gets that. Room was small and comfortable and overlooked a fascinating building site!

Slightly run down, small room. It represents value for money though. Comfy bed, small adequate bathroom, quiet and good air con, also conveniently located. Local restaurants that looked quite good very close by, interesting area of Sing to explore. Clean linen, while the room wasn't dirty the walls etc we're scuffed. Fine for a stop over for a lot of people. Shower tiny so if you're on the heavier side, that might be uncomfortable.

We stay at Fragrance Ruby for 3 days. The room and bathroom are small but comfy and clean. You can use hairdryer and kettle to make tea, coffee, and instant noodle. The TV is big so you can watch it clearly. There are no breakfast here, and i only get free wifi in the lobby. there are some chinese restaurants near to the hotel. the hotel location is near from Aljuned MRT too.
