Reviewed 22 July 2014

I stayed in this hotel two overnights, I chose this hotel because very close to NUS around 10 minutes walks. The hotel has a small, basic, and simple room with no refrigerator and only-shower bathroom (no bathtub). This hotel has no public space / common room (room only hotel) and no free internet access.

I usually check the mattress underneath the cover right after check-in, I found one-two long-hair-losses, it seems that the bedding was not properly cleaned.

Overall is very expensive but the front staff was very nice and helpful.

The rooms were tiny with barely enough place to move around. No work table, no lounge chair or sofa, the whole room is occupied with a queen size bed. The bathroom is tiny is well, with hardly any place for a shower. Too expensive considering the room size and amenities. But good location, very clean, free wifi, and courteous staff. Close to NUS, and West Coast parks Nice restaurants with good choice of cuisine close by. Also some good massage places in the neighbourhood.

We stayed in this hotel because had a business in NUH.Did not like the bed was terrible, not clean, service is so so. TV had very few channels. On the booking com was said that wi fi is free, but was asked 10s$ per 24 h. The internet speed was terrible. Whole hotel had very strong smell from the detergent or something they use for cleaning. At least , should have few benches outside, near door.PS: must say, that the reception guy without glasses( sorry, dont know the name) helped , served us well. Thank you to him :-)

Room Tip: Must ask, if the room has a window. Must ask more quite rooms. Sometimes cleaners do rooms at night...

Fragrance Hotel Ocean View and Waterfront offers clean rooms and a very personalised customer service. Although rooms are small and there is no enough space to move around, but their customer service is really good. Thank You Ritch for a professional encounter with you.

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.
