“Affordable and clean hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

This is the second time I stayed in Fragrance Hotel Joo Chiat with my family Very affordable hotel and clean as well. Staff were friendly and nice. We left our bags at the storage area and they accommodated our request. Will definitely go back if I get to visit Singapore again.

our group stayed at the hotel for 1 night. thank you to Ms. Floy at the reception for welcoming us w/ warmth and ready smile. the Hotel itself is neat and clean. the rooms are small but very convenient. it has the basic necessities like toiletries, hot and cold shower etc. and the rates are affordable compared to other places in singapore. if you are on a budget but still want to have a great place to stay, choose fragrance hotel joo chiat. we will definitely book there again. :)

Room Tip: request for family room when you are 3 to 4 people because the room is a lot bigger.

such a small hotel, but the staff is very friendly. and it's equal to the price. the best choice if you want save your money for other things. but there's no free wifi, you must pay it first. and the air conditioner is very cold, no need to worry about that.

We stayed here for 5 nights last july 17--21, 2013. I can say this is very affordable, clean, peaceful, place to stay. The staff especially Floy, a Filipina (kababayan) was very accomodating and helpful in teaching us how we can reach places in singapore. Our room is just fine, with toiletries, 2 bottles of water everyday, coffee and tea. It has a tv, fridge, hair dryer and electric kettle. The room is being cleaned daily and towels are changed. I truly recommend this hotel. We'll book in this hotel again when we return to singapore.

We have stayed in different cheap hotels in Geylang in the past and I have to say this was the best one. The hotel was clean and the reception looked quite nice compared to some old and dark hotels we've seen. The ordinary rooms are all tiny without windows, so we upgraded to a deluxe room for 10$/night extra, which was a great choice since the room felt immediately more spacious with a window.

We like Geylang area because of the great restaurants, but it is a long walk to the nearest metro station, so not the most convenient location. The hotel also charges for internet which is quite expensive and can quickly add up to the cost of the night if you stay longer than few days. We also experienced problems with our air con and the hot water in the shower lasted only for few minutes before the shower went cold. I had been looking forward to a bath, but there wasn't enough hot water to fill up the bath tub.

Either way, the rooms were cozy despite being small and it didn't stink or smell like cigarettes, as it has in other hotels in the area. It's still quite expensive for what you get but that's just Singapore.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a deluxe room for only 10$/night, it is so worth it, the deluxe rooms have windows and fe...

To the Management:

I wanted to express my appreciation for the superior service I received during my stay on 25th June 2013 at the Joo Chiat Fragrance Hotel. In particular, "Floy" was very helpful and deserve a great deal of praise for their excellent customer service.

I was very enjoyed also the hotel had make a lot of changes like changing new towel, drinking water, bed sheet and etc....

Kudos to you and your staff for making my stay a great one - I will definitely be staying with the Fragrance Hotel again, particular at Joo Chiat branch.

Regards,
Ms Pang KF Rita
