Within minutes of booking this hotel I had a confirmation email so contacted them to find out the best way to get there from the airport. Jack, the Manager, immediately responded giving me several options and sending me links, so thanks Jack, great service.
Even though the hotel wasn't in the best part of town, we felt totally safe walking around day and night. People were lovely, friendly and very helpful, both in the hotel and the general area. It was cheap, the room was big enough for my sister and I, both in our sixties; had a queen and single beds and was very clean. There was a soap dispenser in the shower; free containers of water, toothbrushes and shower caps daily. Take your own shampoo and conditioner. Best of all we had a kettle with free sachets of coffee, which was great!
The staff were very helpful in directing us to catch local transport to various areas so we used both buses and metro and would recommend the latter as the most efficient way to get around.
The best meal we had was also in the local area, Vegetarian Restaurant; it was a beautiful, clean, Chinese restaurant and the food, unlike its name, was not all vegetarian. The cost was $4.80 each meal!
All in all a great stay at the Fragrance Hotel-Sapphire and I would highly recommend it.
When you arrive at Changi Airport go to the Information Desk as they are extremely helpful. Elizabeth, who works there, told us to show the stub of our boarding pass when getting on the Singapore Airlines hop on hop off bus and it would cost $6. Best and cheapest day we had hopping on and off that bus. She'll give you a map showing where the bus stops - about 22 places. Word of warning: there are several hop on hop off buses and, instead of going by the map, we were asking people where it stopped and were sent all over the place, so look at the map and go where indicated - it's not a double decker one.
