Fragrance Hotel - Riverside
Ranked #177 of 319 Hotels in Singapore
Reviewed 14 April 2014

We stayed in a Family Deluxe room at the Fragrance Riverside in HongKong St, in March 2014, on our way back from India.
Arriving early in the morning, and knowing that check in was not until 3pm, we tried to pass as much time as possible before presenting ourselves to the hotel.
Eventually at 9am we asked if we were able to get early check in and were advised that the room had been cleaned now and check in was possible for $30 Singapore - we slept for 4 hours!
Rooms are very clean albeit small and our room had one double bed and one single. The bathroom was small but spotlessly clean and with hot water in the sink - the first time I had experienced this for 2 months after Indian travel - luxury shaving!
Cleaning staff were on the ball and attended to our room daily, replenishing sullies in the room.
TV in the room but no fridge.
No free wifi - you have to pay for this - $10 per day - we chose to go to the nearby Starbucks or to Chinatown for free wifi.
A/C was good, on the cold side if anything.
Overall I thought Jayleen 1918 could be better value as it included breakfast and wifi and the room was larger even though the hotel itself seemed not as modern. You need to check out prices of the two though, they are virtually back to back with each other.
There are other hotels nearby also, in Carpenter St there is Le Hotel and there are others in South Bridge Road only a few metres away.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe room as rooms here are small.

Located 5 minutes walk from clarke quay the hotel is ok but not a relatively good value for money. The hot water in the bathroom is not very hot, there is no plugg next to the bed to plug your phone or else. The staff is nice and always eager to help. Must pay 20 $ for the wifi...

Unless you are staying for one night, don't stay here the room is incredibly small. Definitely not big enough for two even with a double bed. And the bed is like sleeping on a table so hard every night waking up with horrible back pains. The room also gets very humid on its own making the floor and belongings go a bit damp every day.
And if you have a long trip and will need washing don't rely on the hotel to do it at $5 a tshirt. And there is not even free wifi I actually don't know where all the money I am paying is going !

The only positive is the convince of clarke quay.

Hotel is located near to Clarke Quay station, 10 minutes walk to the Bay area (Marina Bay Sands etc). The room was clean, hotel has nice pool on the roof. Room for three ppl is tiny and the internet we paid for had very poor signal.

Good location as it's near by Clark Quay MRT station. 5 minutes walk to MRT. Won't go hungry or thirsty as there's a 7 Eleven just downstairs the hotel. Rooms are tidy and clean. However, don't leave your bathroom door open after a hot shower as the hot air will start to condense in the room leaving it damp. Friendly staff. I will return again especially for it's good location.

I stayed there for four nights. Location of the hotel is right in front of clark quay and Clark quay station. There is a shopping mall right oposite the mall. Staff at the hotel is Courteous but having an early morning flight, I reached the hotel early and had to wait in the lobby for few hours as they couldn't give me an early check in. Room was very small with small shower area with toilet but manageable for one person staying there . Pool was small but clean. I loved the location.

Room Tip: Stay there only for location

Stayed here for four nights, and it was a very good experience, especially the location of the hotel right in front of clark quay/clark quay station, and china town only 10 mins walk from here. the rooms are nice and clean a bit small but nevertheless manageable. The reception staff was always courteous and helped us with directions and tours. If you are in singapore on a budget this the hotel you are lookin for!!!
