We went to this hotel twice while passing through Singapore on the way to London. We would definitely consider staying here again. Some great and not so great points about it, but I think if you're aware then you will be OK with them.
* Great location, only 10 minute walk from the Aljuneid MRT station, and not very far from the airport by the train.
* Very affordable rooms. Basic, and small but as we were only passing through, this was perfect for us.
* The reception staff were very friendly and helpful, it's open 24 hours.
Not so great points!
* Be aware, this is not the shiny part of Singapore that we all know and love. There are thousands of people on the streets of this 'hood 24 hours a day. There are lots of working ladies nearby, and there are lots of street stalls selling smelly things like durians and mystery meat! If you're aware of this, you'll be fine. Just be prepared to walk out of the train station and have to handle the crowds before getting to the hotel. The hotel itself though is very quiet and clean. It also appears to be one of the more modern buildings in the area!
* This is a budget hotel, so we had to ask for things like towels (i think the cleaning ladies just forgot them, its not like they aren't included). The reception team were absolutely great though and were able to give us anything we missed out on.
I would highly recommend them, especially if you don't want to spend a fortune, need somewhere easy to get to, and if you want to see a side of Singapore most people don't ;).
Have fun! And thank you Fragrance Ruby hotel for your hospitality.
