Fragrance Hotel - Emerald
Ranked #147 of 316 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed October 18, 2013

I give this an average because of the price only. Like the other Fragrance Hotel in my review, this one also gave me a room that was already (or recently) occupied. What is the chance of this happening twice, within a week, at two different Fragrance locations...??? Unlike Fragrance Ruby that was recently renovated and very nice, the Fragrance Emerald shows its age, The location is a bit better than Ruby as it is not deep in the red light district. The 3rd floor where I stayed smelled like a solvent, maybe diesel? Not sure. I would try not to stay here again, but would do it if other locations were not available.... try Fragrance Ruby first, this one should be a back-up plan (unless you are adverse to the redlight district - then stay AWAY from Geylang).

the staff were so helpful as we left a small bag in the taxi with our new camera and phone, no luck as we didn't get a taxi receipt,but the staff called again in the morning and booked in a report for us,the room was very spacious,large bathroom very comfortable bed and only a 10minute walk to MRT so easy to travel on , 7 eleven store around the corner for some happy hour drinks and nibbles, great for an overnight stay as Singapore hotels are very dear

Room Tip: we always request top floor as you wont hear the street noises, and ask for free upgrades if availab...

Unfortunately this is the one hotel that I did not do a great deal of research on in terms of the area etc. I had the first page or two of tripadvisor reviews but should have dug a little deeper!
We arrived at midnight and were exhausted. I had chosen this spot because of the price as it was a lot cheaper than some of the others and we were literally only intending to sleep there and then leave the next morning. After check in we got into the room and it was small as expected which was no problem. When we finally tried to get to sleep we were unable to for a number of reasons;
1. The bed was ROCK HARD! So painful and unbearable to sleep on. We barely got an hour sleep because of it.
2. We were on the second floor next to the road and could hear everything. It was so noisy.
3. We were right outside the elevator and every time someone got in or out of it on our floor there was a loud DING
4. The walls are paper thin, we could hear every movement of our neighbours on each side including their early morning showers.
Doing be tight like us and just fork out a little extra for something more bearable.

Room Tip: Here's a tip: don't stay here :)

Just arrived from Malaysia to Singapore and go directly to Fragrance Hotel Emerald. We booked for an overnight for 2 rooms and we were upgraded to Deluxe Room. When we reached our room, it was nice big and with complete amenities. I never expected that this hotel was very nice. My parents loves it too...highly recommended...definitely, we will check in again.,.no negative feedback...

The hotel is good for its price. Very small rooms, not much space for bags around the bed. The room is clean and the bathroom is fresh.

This hotel fits anyone on a tight budget wanting to experience the city. Me and my wife took a cab each day to different parts of the city (cabs are incredibly cheap in Singapore). It's about a 10 minute walk to the subway.

During the evenings/nights we saw some girl-escorts a block away.

Room Tip: No restaurant and no swimming pool.

One word 'dump ' clean enough but rooms are so small and as for the bed, well the floor would be more comfortable. For a pricy 90 quid a night i would stay away. It us in the red light area but not a problem, only a 10 min walk to Kallang Mrt is a major plus and cheaper than taxis
