“Not an interesting area but close enough to transit”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

Small room in a not very interesting part of the city; in fact you enter the hotel lobby at street level, but when you get to your room, you realize that the hotel is built in a gulley. So even from our fifth floor we were just even with the street out front but overlooking a parking lot at the bottom of the gulley out back (and across at a an apartment building also built in the gulley). The young staff were friendly and helpful. There is nothing wrong with the hotel, it is just in an area of lighting and home improvement stores; you have to catch a bus to get to anywhere or walk about 20 minutes to the Novena LRT station. There is a Fairprice grocery store just a couple of blocks away that is a good place to pick-up a full range of groceries, and many restaurants in the area full of locals (not a touristy area at all).

We stayed just 1 night as it wasn't too far from the airport, we arrived around 9pm hungry & sleepy but were not disappointed. The gentleman on the front desk was very helpful, we checked in quickly & he then pointed out a few places we should try for food near by.
The room was small, basic but comfy & clean. Very reasonably priced & would definitely recommend.
It took us around 15-20 mins in a taxi the next day to get to the city centre. Taxi's quite cheap in general.

The rooms was lovely and clean (and serviced every day) and although it was quite small it was comfortable enough for two. Staff were friendly and always available. Within walking distance to the Novena MRT station, which was handy as the hotel is quite a way from Chinatown and the Marina. Overall good value and would definitely stay again!

Singapore may not exactly be a cheap place, far from it actually but Fragrance Hotel can be recommended for budget travelers. From friendly reception staff, a pleasant smelling hotel to easy commute around Singapore since it's just beside the bus stop. Our room was tiny, no windows, a/c working, 8 channels on tv, bathroom is small, good only for 2 person. Our room does not include wifi you have to pay for S$5 for it. You get what you pay for I guess.

If it weren't for the lovely receptionist changing one of our rooms, we would have left. The rooms with no windows are grim and suitable for only a brief stay. We were fortunate to end up with two rooms with windows. The rooms were clean and nicely cleaned daily.

The reception staff were incredibly informative. They knew which buses went where, the best deals for travel, great places to eat. The list is endless! Whatever the staff are being paid should be doubled, or tripled!

Singapore is a tricky place to find reasonably priced accommodation for a family group so this accommodation was priced suitably. Next time I think we will pay a bit more for more comfortable accommodation. Even though going to the loo and showering at the same time was weirdly fun.

Room Tip: If staying longer than one night ask for a room with a window.
