Fragrance Hotel - Ocean View

Reviewed 10 May 2013

I had a 1-day staycation with my wife there. Price was okay but if you are booking there ask for window room, otherwise it'll be alittle claustrophobic. Good flat screen with dvd players but the tv shows alittle distortion. front desk staff was 4/10. maybe they don't have alot of tourist or local couples there as I noticed alot of people in shipping coveralls checking in and out. Amenities around the area is good. Lots of food and dessert and provision shops. Overall, I'll definitely come back as the location is good for us, its very quiet and clean!

Room Tip: Remember to ask for Room With Window!! :)

Overaly, it is extremely hard to find a hotel in the west area of Singapore. If you have some business in NUS or NUH, this hotel is the best choice. The price is reasonable for a average stay. Room of 2 persons is small enough to put a queen sized bed. It is hard to move around in your rooms due to the space constraint. All the basic equipment is available.
Next to the hotel is the Fong Seng food court which opens for 24 hours with all kinds of foods: malay, india, taiwan, singapore and others. The West Coast Park is within walking distance, and is a very good place for picnic and kite playing.
Of course, NUS is just behind the hotel. Parents who visits their kids can consider this hotel.

You get what you pay for. Fast check in (a week stay), got the superior room, booked the hotel kinda late so this is one of the affordable decent hotels around considering that it is located in the residential area of Pasir Panjang. Houses nearby are those of posh condominiums, landed houses and town houses so I considered the location since my mom is with me (inspite of how they brand Fragrance).

Check the location first and foremost. If you got the Fragrance Geylang red-light district area, then of course you get it very cheap but you don't feel safe and you feel its the sleeziest. I am just relieved that this hotel is in the residential area and its nearby a big reputable University (NUS). Quite a selection of food from Chinese, Indian which is open 24 hours!, Malay cuisines nearby. There is also a nearby Javanese Traditional Massage, a dainty-pretty-looking nail salon and 3 convenience stores! Good amount of taxis around, a 2 minute (or less) walking distance from the hotel to a bus stop which brings you to VIVO CITY and of course Sentosa!).

I just find the room and the toilet to be too small in which as an asian, I still find it small! We were given a room with a window though and was happy, for it gave me a spacious feeling inspite of the compact size. Bed was fine (don't expect for a very soft bed and the floors seemed clean anyway. It also had a tall, attached cabinet that can fit 1 luggage and hang 2 pcs of clothes. It also has a dvd player attached on the dresser, of course a flat tv, attached on the wall, toothbrushes (yup they do!) and a soap dispenser. Inspite of all the small glitches, you do get what you pay for but I stil consider it as a clean average hotel in a respected location. At least I felt safe too!

With Singapore's very efficient transportation system, everything is near wherever you are anyway.

I think some of the older reviews must have this hotel mixed up with others in the Fragrance franchise in Geylang red light district. This hotel is quite respectable, the rooms are clean, neat and an adequate size for the price. The location is quiet although you do hear noise from the hallway. It is not located close to any attractions but the public transport is good and cheap although if you are into very late nights in the red light district then expect a $20 cab fare.
The rooms are well serviced and the staff are friendly and there are good restraunts very close by. If you are after a quiet base away from the bussle of downtown at a reasonable price, I would recommend this hotel or Fragrance Waterfront 2 doors down.

I would not recommend this place for tourists:
1) Location...this is far from downtown. You are going to pay a lot more for transport to get to town
2) Sleezy. Let's face it, the 'fragrance' hotel brand is built mainly for hourly rates for couples wanting some sexy time.
3) Uncomfortable beds.....beds are hard, sheets are very thin, how could anyone have a good night's sleep? It is afterall built to cater to 'hourly patrons'.
4) Room is very small with very basic and bare amenities....you are better off putting up in a hostel
5) The room smell of smoke....

Really, you will get people staring at you for no reason here....because it is a dodgy and sleezy place

Well, where shall I start?

Not A Hotel: they should say in their website that this is just an hourly hotel for s.e.x purpose and never for people who actually want a place to rest, with all sort of "coupled" ppl coming to the place only for one purpose u should be prepared to hear disgusting noises, even fighting perhaps for money. And we realized afterwards why always there are these ppl (males) outside the hotel staring at us when we go out and in, perhaps they were thinking we are here for "Hourly " purpose too.

Smoky place: you want more to hear: Everything in the room smells of SMOKE, pillow, sheets, even the clothes we had on in the hotel were smelling afterwards, and seems like the cleaner themselves are the smokers.

Room Size: more like a cage, so small with no cupboard for cloth and some room with NO WINDOW which was horrible, the bathroom's so small there is practically no space for a proper shower, less than 60cm * 60cm space.

Price :(((((( And you know what hurts, we paid same money as we did for good, reasonable place in Sydney, Melbourne, Paris, even in few cities in Canada, yes we paid more than 60 euro a night for such a crap.

My advice: Never go to such place, I've been to this branch but seems like this Fragrance has so many branches, my guess is all are same rubbish,
